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!

As a team, we remain committed to providing pets with the best lives they can experience. We’ve resolved to help pet parents find more ways to keep their pets healthy, happy, and ready to take on this year and beyond. To help you keep better track of your pet’s health and maintenance needs, here is a 12-month plan:
While COVID-19 quarantines continue across the country, you may be spinning your wheels to stay busy, productive, and positive. Luckily, our pets provide a great deal of comfort and companionship despite the isolation and stress caused by the Novel Coronavirus. As dogs and cats get used to having you at home, you may need to add some new activities to your repertoire to help keep them busy and make the most of your time together.
Are you ready to hop into spring? We sure are.

From treasure-hunt style Easter egg hunts to the resurgence of “Victory Gardens,” it’s heartwarming to see folks looking out for each other while staying safe and healthy.
