Brian Collins, DVM
One of the most important roles a veterinarian can play is to promote and support the human-animal bond. Preventative care and a commitment to wellness are critical components of success in this area. My role with Community Practice Service gives me the perfect forum to share ways that our clients can protect their pets and add time, quality, and meaning to the relationship they have with their companions.
