Our goal is to provide our clients and their patients with the best care and medicine possible regardless of where we live. We feels there’s no reason why a rural practice can’t compete in care, compassion, comfort and especially diagnostic capabilities with more urban areas. We continue to strive to do this to protect and invest in our patients just as our clients have done by walking through our doors. The quality of medicine and care provided at Monon Veterinary Clinic will never stop improving.
