The Family Pet Clinic

5151 Turney Rd, Garfield Heights, United States



We specialize in small animal medicine and take care of mostly dogs and cats. We also treat exotics. We are "You and your pet's extended family" At our veterinary hospital, your pets are our family! The Family Pet Clinic was originally named Bartles Pet Clinic by its founder, Dr. Harry Bartles, in 1992. A year later, Dr. Terri Slezak joined the practice. In 2000, Dr. Bartles retired and sold the practice to Dr. Richard Thompson. Not long after, the clinic held a contest among its clients to choose a new name- and "The Family Pet Clinic" was born! In 2015, Dr. Eric Allie joined the practice and our team became complete. The Family Pet Clinic is a full service facility, offering wellness care, specialized plans for puppies and kittens, senior pet care, a wide variety of surgery, pet dentistry, internal medicine, digital radiography, dermatology, behavior counseling, specialized toxicology treatment, a full pharmacy, medical grooming, microchip placement, and daytime emergency medicine. The clinic has an extensive state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory that was upgraded in 2013. We are proud to offer medical care for the police canines of Garfield Heights and many surrounding law enforcement agencies, with over fifty dogs from 19 departments served by our doctors and staff. Since January 2000, the number of pets cared for by The Family Pet clinic has quadrupled. The pet owners of the Garfield Heights area deserve the highest quality care for their furry friends, and we are proud to serve them. In addition to treating dogs and cats, The Family Pet Clinic also provides medical care for exotic pets, including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice, hedgehogs, and non-venemous reptiles.
