Dr Cline and his staff strive to present a relaxed and familiar facade to what is actually a very sophisticated and technologically advanced animal care facility. Offering a full range of laboratory and imaging diagnostics, as well as progressive surgical and medical treatment options for your pets. Southwest Veterinary treats all our patients like they are our own animals, and our clients like we want to be treated.
That being said, the Drs and Staff here at SWVH are first and foremost your animal’s health advocates.
Known far and wide for his blunt approach, Dr Cline can and will “hurt you with the truth”. This approach is not born out of malice, rather from the deep desire by he and his staff, for you to be completely informed of your animal’s problems and treatment options.
We are currently under construction to add much needed footage so we can offer the state of the act services to our patience. We look forward to greeting our clients once the construction is complete!

Fleas and ticks are tricky. Even when you check your pet for these nasty critters they can be tough to find because they’re small and hide well in dark fur. But it’s crucial to find and treat them quickly. Why? Some ticks carry bacteria that cause disease (such as Lyme disease, but there are many others). And all you need is one undetected tick bite for your pet to become infected. They can become sick and develop kidney problems. At times, these diseases can be fatal. Additionally, fleas can cause problems such as allergies or even tapeworms and anemia.

Along with obesity, dental disease is a leading (and preventable) illness that takes the lives of far too many pets far too early. To make matters even more pressing, over 80% of dogs and 50% of cats over the age of three will develop periodontal disease.
