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.

She is also one of the only veterinarians in the area that performs Cruciate Ligament Repair Surgery.

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.
