Veterinarian in Mesa, AZ

Comet Veterinary Hospital was established in 1998, with the goal of providing modern veterinary care with the personal, hands on attention of a small private practice. At Comet Veterinary Hospital, the DR is the owner of the practice, and therefore, all of the decisions are made directly and in light of the individual case, owner, and pet. This allows a freedom not found in large, policy driven hospitals. We hope to be able to see and help care for your pets.
