We Diagnose Before We Treat

Diagnose

Many diseases may look the same on physical examination, but have a different causes and require different types of treatments. Therefore, we practice based on the principle, “We diagnose before we treat.” The diagnostics we use include blood tests, biopsy, endoscopy, microscopy, radiology, ultrasound, and second opinions from experts in the field. Using this process, we are able to better determine the underlying causes and produce measurable treatment outcomes.

Diagnose Before You Treat

Touch Before You Teach

At Safari we understand the you want to know we care before you care what we know.  We will touch you and your pet with our heartfelt care and consideration before we offer our recommendations.

Teach Before You Reach

At Safari we believe that “He who has the smartest client”, “WINS!” We love to teach about the care we give before we reach for medications.  We understand there are always alternatives and involving you in the care decisions serves your pet best.
