A personal note from Dr. Doak:

As some of you may have already heard, I have been dealing with some health issues lately.  I have recently been diagnosed with cancer and am currently undergoing treatment.  My schedule may vary some as treatment side effects are not known currently.  Also, due to risk of infection, the vet techs will be more hands on with handling and treatment of the patients. However, we at Kirksville Small Animal Hospital will do our very best to continue to accommodate our clientele and their pets.  We will have a relief vet at KSAH on occasion as needed.  Trust that your pet’s care is our main focus and we will continue to treat your pet as our own! 

At Kirksville Small Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
