Welcome to Pet Vet Partners

At Plum Creek and Pet Vet veterinary clinics, we are client-centered patient advocates. We will share the latest, best information with you to protect your pets and you, their human family. We will help you separate fiction and fad from fact. Our pets today can live so much longer than generations ago, yet like people, face many more health risks than in the past.

We will speak up for the needs of our patients but let you decide the level of care you want to provide them. Our goal is to enhance the quality and extend the duration of our patients' lives. We want them all to have the longest, best life possible but we respect that ultimately the life they live and their care is up to you.

All of our team members understand and celebrate the strong emotional bond between pets and their families. This bond has grown stronger over the generations as pets have moved from the barn or backyard to the back porch, then onto the sofa and now often onto the bed. With this closeness comes risks that many people are unaware of.

The black and white imagery above emphasizes the timelessness of the love and care we give our pet family members. Every family has unique and treasured family stories about favorite pets. The oldest members of extended families are often the keepers of these riches and pass them from generation to generation. We love to hear these stories and to share our own.


Sincerely,

Dr. Sam Morris
