The Neighborhood Veterinarian animal hospital is the heart and soul of the solo practitioner, Dr. Sue Bartz.
After feeling much disappointment while working in the corporate world, Dr. Sue began making plans to build a hospital based on professional service and personal care. It took well over a year of hard work and dedication to build an animal hospital worthy of such merit.
The Neighborhood Veterinarian opened its doors on October 1st of 2001. Though the clientele was small, Dr. Sue and staff made sure each and every client felt secure with their services. Over the years this philosophy has not changed. The clientele continues to grow but personal and professional care remains the same.

What You Need to Know About Ticks
The organization Pets and Parasites states that cases of Lyme disease and heartworm is higher this year because of more ticks. The increase is attributed to the dry and hot weather conditions of the last several summers. Fever, fatigue, arthritis, and infections of the skin are the most obvious indications of a tick. This parasite cannot survive without the blood of its host.
You can help reduce the likelihood of Lyme disease or by checking your pet for ticks daily. The best way to do this is to feel with your hand from head to tail as well as your pet’s underbelly, between toes, underneath the ears and armpits, and under the face and chin. Be sure to pull the tick out in a straight motion with a pair of tweezers so you don’t leave any of the body behind.
It’s also highly important to utilize a flea and tick prevention program. We can help!
