Foothills Animal Clinic has three licensed veterinarians, Dr. Gretchen Kelly, Dr. Barbara Booth, and Dr. Samantha Freudenthal, to care for all of your pet's needs. All of our doctors maintain a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education each year. In doing so, they are able to keep up with the newest and most complete information about your pet's healthcare. Your pet's health and well being are very important to us, and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.
