You must experience the “Safari Difference” to understand the level of compassion, love and commitment the doctors and staff have toward the care and well-being of animals. At Safari we Diagnose before we treat, we touch before we teach and we teach before we reach.

Diagnose Before You Treat  – Tired of trial and error medicine for your Pet?  At Safari we target the illness with the proper diagnostics before we start specific treatment.

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.

We respect all life
Safari’s premise is that “as long as there is life there is hope” This conservation viewpoint guides our decisions about the care of the animals as well as the planet.


At Safari we practice a team based model of care delivery. Our 25 support staff work hand in hand with our veterinarians to provide the best for you and your pet. Each staff member is trained and tested on their knowledge of animal husbandry on a weekly basis.
