Meet Our Owners and Veterinarians


Meet the Advanced Animal Care leadership team!

If you are looking for the very best care for your pet, look no further. We opened our doors in 2012 and have been providing state-of-the-art veterinary care to the pets of Fort Mohave, Bullhead City, Needles, and Laughlin since then. We believe in providing your pet with the same quality of medicine that we give our own pets. Come check us out!

Advanced Animal Care’s mission is to provide professional, honest, and caring support to our clients while providing wellness, healing, comfort, and the best quality care and medicine to our patients so that they may live longer and healthier lives.

Dr. Erika Cartwright

Dr. Erika Cartwright

Owner and Veterinarian

Dr. Cartwright grew up on the southern coast of Oregon and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 2004 and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State in 2008. Shortly after, she moved to Arizona with her husband Joe and practiced as a mixed animal veterinarian in Kingman. In July of 2012, Dr. Cartwright opened Advanced Animal Care in Fort Mohave.

“There is a lot of diversity with a small animal practice that enables me to do what I love, getting to know my patients, and being a part of their lives.” Dr. Cartwright has advanced training in veterinary dentistry and jaw fracture repair. She is also one of the only veterinarians in the area that performs Cruciate Ligament Repair Surgery.

Dr. Cartwright shares her home with her husband Joe, their two kids, cats Cheese and Crackers, and her dog Bernice. She enjoys CrossFit and being involved in her children’s football and cheer activities. She can also fit her whole fist in her mouth!

Dr. Guinn

Dr. Guinn


Dr. Guinn has an extensive background in emergency care and was an ER veterinarian for over twenty years. She spent most of her life in California but took many vacations to our area while living there. When Dr. Guinn decided she wanted to transition to general practice, she knew she wanted to be in the desert near the Colorado River, so our area was the perfect fit!

Dr. Guinn loves all things outdoors, including boating, off-roading, kayaking, camping, and motorcycle riding. She spends her spare time with her army of schipperkes, friends, and family.

“I truly enjoy being the voice for pets. When was the last time someone was so overjoyed to see you that they literally ran to see you? Pets are the best!”

Linus and Lucy

Linus and Lucy

Clinic Cats

Linus joined the Advanced Animal Care team in June of 2021 and soon after, in December, Lucy was also adopted. They bring so much joy to the staff and are there for comfort and snuggles when anyone needs them. Linus enjoys climbing up as high as he can, taking naps, and sneaking into cages after patients have left them. Lucy loves walking on keyboards, stealing food, and meowing loudly.
