This is done through the promotion of healthy-pet wellness and through diagnosis, treatment, control and prevention of companion animal diseases and through the treatment of emergencies, accidents, illnesses and injuries, when these befall a pet. CVMG Veterinarians also advise pet owners on proper care of their pets, promote themselves and the Company to the public in positive and professional ways, mentor new-hires, both professional and paraprofessional, and help shepherd clients and their pets through the veterinary service cycle in such ways that the overall client experience is as pleasant and efficient as possible.
Both of our practices are located in comparatively affluent, family-friendly areas of the north Dallas region. Our facilities operate on a collaborative basis and we have more than 80 years of combined knowledge and wisdom accumulated amongst the veterinarians in our group.
In addition, you will also have referral access to the many veterinary specialty centers in the area, for those cases that need it.
