As for the Veterinarians at Pet Central, the welfare of the pet has always come first.  We believe in a common sense approach to Veterinary Medicine. We treat your pet as we would our own. Dr. Philip Nelson started the practice is 1973 with the philosophy to take care of all pets in the NE community and treat clients fairly. This means being transparent with medical findings and not using unfair pricing.
