“Our beloved pets have been patients of Dr. Liz Conger for many years. She is an exceptional veterinarian and very special human being. Not only is she a caring, detailed doctor but she is also a compassionate person regarding the owners of the pets she treats. We have been blessed and will continue to be blessed to have her in our kitties lives and in ours also."    -Elizabeth and Don


I, for one, believe that Dr. Conger is one of the best vets in the area! I am grateful for all of the excellent care and attention my animals and I have received over the years. Dr. Conger and her staff have provided excellent care to my animals over the many years. She has always responded to my questions, either during the appointment or over the phone after office hours. She is a great vet and has always done what was best for my animal and is always concerned for their well being and mine.  I highly recommend her to all of my friends or anyone who needs a great vet. Her name is always mentioned when discussing animal care."


Terrific Vet Clinic-  I drive 35 miles to see this vet.  I would only trust my animals to Dr. Conger.  I know my animals are in good hands. She is very caring and very knowledgeable.  I appreciate her bedside manner with my animals as well as me.

“I have a Blue and Gold Macaw and have used Dr. Onorati for a number of years. He is a very honest man and really has a way with birds. His prices are reasonable and have made my difficult bird a lot easier to be around. Through a series of hormone injections my bird has really mellowed out.  I really appreciate his service. Thank you Doc!”                      - "K.C."


I have an African Grey parrot as an emotional support animal.  To say we're over bonded is an understatement.  Haven't been apart 2 weeks in 24 years.  Phinneas developed and ingrown feather, so I took Phinneas to Dr. Onorati, Well he removed the ingrown feather and several shafts that needed removal.  I was reunited with Phinnieas so much sooner than expected.  Dr.Onorati treated Phinneas and accommodated a distraught human as well.  Many thanks on many levels

Peace,  Chris & Phinneas
