Our Story

It is our mission at Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital to treat every client as though they are family and every pet as if they were our own. Our hospital was founded on our commitment to provide comprehensive, high-quality veterinary care with an emphasis on exceptional client service and patient care.

Dr. Sue Shivers, our hospital owner and one of our veterinarians, has set a high standard of care for our clients and patients. Our veterinary team, which has continued to grow throughout the years, is made up of highly-trained individuals with a variety of backgrounds in veterinary medicine. Each of our team members is committed to getting to know you and your pet on an individual basis, providing complete, state-of-the-art care. We love our veterinary team and strive to provide them all with desirable, fulfilling, and financially-rewarding employment. We are proud of the Creature Comforts Veterinary team!

We are committed to providing both routine care and urgent care for our patients. It is our constant goal to be available to patients the same day they need care.
