Companion Animal Hospital's Vision

Companion Animal Hospital was founded by Dr. Marcia Izo in April 2002. Dr. Izo and her husband, Terry, built the state-of-the-art facility in order to provide an exceptional experience for both patients and their owners. Today, our veterinarians strive to find the best solutions for your pet(s), while developing long-lasting relationships with our clients and facilitating a trusting and familiar atmosphere for all companions. Dr. Izo’s vision remains the guidepost for everything we do and how we do it!
