About us

Sarah the office cat

TLC Animal Hospital is a small animal veterinary hospital that was founded in 1978 by Dr. Guy Johnsen and his wife, Kathy Johnsen. Their legacy of excellence in care and customer service has been passed down to Dr. Vicki Dashley and Dr. Alfredo Lara. They are committed to providing understanding, dedication, and superior customer service to all TLC Animal Hospital clients and their pets. All doctors and staff at TLC Animal Hospital are also Fear Free Certified. They strive to reduce the fear and anxiety associated with veterinary visits as much as possible, and provide each pet with great tender loving care.

The veterinarians at TLC Animal Hospital primarily see cats and dogs, though Dr. Dashley will also treat rabbits, Guinea pigs, ferrets, birds, non-venomous snakes, turtles, reptiles and other pocket pets. Appointments are preferred so that we can prepare for your pet's visit. However, we understand if your pet's problem is urgent or you are having trouble fitting an appointment into your busy schedule, so walk-in visits are also welcome and we will do our best to accommodate your pet between appointments. Appointments are required for all non-emergency anesthetic procedures.

    Great service and they are always very nice. When you have an appointment scheduled your pet is seen promptly and the visit is quick but thorough. Affordable as well

    Great place with great staff. They care about for animals and you. If you are respectful, then you week have a great time. Been here for quite a range of services offered and every time, they are cordial and it's great.

    The best exotic vet in town. Took one of my guinea pigs to a vet here and was so happy with the customer service and knowledge. It’s just a shame I didn’t hear about this place sooner when my other guinea pig had ringworm. Just got a puppy and will be calling to make an appointment for him, I know he will get the best care here.
