 Why Advanced Veterinary Care? : “I chose to follow Dr. Chace to Advanced Veterinary Care because I believe in his medicine and vision in which patient care and client education are the top priorities. With the addition of Dr. Kelley, we strengthened that mission.  I enjoy working for doctors who appreciate the input and skills of their technicians, and feel that patients receive better medicine and better care when they are in the hands of a knowledgeable and compassionate medical team.”
