Our Commitment to the Community

At Guardian Veterinary Specialists, we’re serious about giving back and making high-quality veterinary care accessible to as many pets as possible. That’s why we offer registered nonprofit animal shelters and rescue groups a generous 50% discount on our medical and surgical services.

We also support the region’s primary care veterinarians by sharing resources, ideas and knowledge—including through continuing education. This, in turn, helps them to help their patients and pet-owner clients.
