New Advertiser: Polk City Veterinary Hospital

polk-city-vet-hospital

Please check out our latest advertiser on Polk City Square, Dr. Comito and Polk City Veterinary Hospital.  We’ve been taking our two dogs here for a couple years now and we are honestly very impressed.  Most recently our little dog had an accident when running around in the woods and literally cut her eyeball.  Dr. Comito saw us right away, took great care of her, and called us at home several times afterward to make sure she was improving.

Dr. Comito has been a vet since 1992, serves dogs and cats for regular care, dental work, and emergency care including surgeries. They do pretty much everything you can think of for dogs and cats (no boarding) and they are accepting new clients! Check out these pictures of the clinic, its a full service facility with an X-ray machine and surgery facility in the basement.

PS You can also pick up Frontline and Heartguard for your pets, even if they are not patients of at Polk City Veterinary Hospital.

Meet Johnny, a dog looking for a home

johnnyWhen I was at Polk City Veterinary Hospital taking pictures last week I met Johnny.  He is such a sweet, happy dog and he is looking for a new home.  He is an 8-year-old Pit Bull (possible Ridgeback mix).  He is house broken and good with older kids and would also likely do fine in a house that already has other pets if they are reasonably calm. Contact Polk City Veterinary Hospital to meet Johnny and see if he is a good fit for your family.

Call Polk City Veterinary Hospital 515-984-6800.
