My vision when founding Swengel Animal Hospital in 1983 was to become the premier veterinary practice in our area. Today, with a foundation on integrity, teamwork and quality care, we have accomplished this by continuing to offer patient-focused service. we strongly believe that integrity forms the basis of everything we do. As a practice committed to ensuring the highest level of trust with our clients, we always offer the solution that is in the best interest of maintaining or bettering your pet's health. In order to sustain excellent pet care, teamwork is a key element employed continuously in our daily practice.
