Jessie Stanley, DVM, Medical Director

Dr. Stanley, DVM, Chief of Surgery

Dr. Stanley, a veterinarian with advanced surgical skills, is our Medical Director, as well as an owner/partner of this business.  His professional approach has always been to respect the human-animal bond and exceed expectations regarding client communication.  Throughout his career, he noticed that there was a gap between general practice and specialty care and as this gap increased, the accessibility of care diminished.  This hospital was born from the idea that  an intermediate care model like ours gives wider access to procedures and care that otherwise may not be available to most pet owners.​   Dr.. Stanley is known for his passion for advanced training techniques, such as the TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy), which is a common procedure now, given the number of pets that experience severe CCL injuries.
