What to Expect


It is hard to describe what you can expect when you become an exclusive client of us here at Safari Animal Clinic..... other than we strive to leave our clients in awe! You have to experience it to know what I mean.

In summary we have developed a low stress SPA like experience to veterinary medicine so our patients can relax and look forward to their visits.

We also place extreme emphasis on prevention rather than cure. The common problems like worms or heartworms or flea dermatitis or pyometra (uterine infections)or prostate cancer, that create the bulk of the bread and butter income for most other clinics, are almost never seen by us, because we so thoroughly prevent them. In fact we can claim that the patients we have on one of our Executive level preventative plans (Silver.Gold, Platinum - see under "SERVICES") need never worry about these.

We have also gone to great lengths to discover alternative therapies like LASER therapy and LASER surgery and natural alternatives to medications to make pets live longer and happier lives.

But most of all, I am proud of my staff for knowing each and every client and each and every patient and their personal needs by heart- not only as if they were family, but as if they were our mothers or grandmas.

About Our SPA VISITS …

Imagine that you wake up in the morning, a limousine picks you up and takes you to the Spa. At the door, an attendant meets you with a heated bathrobe and escorts you to your private cabana for a nap. The air is filled with pleasant smells and in the background, are soothing white noises like sea waves crashing or forest rain. After your nap, you are given a gourmet treat and go for a brisk morning walk.

On your return, you are given a full body massage and manicure and pedicure. You get to experience the pleasures of an invigorating, luxurious "Hydro Surge", deep massaging bath. You might as well be bathing under an exotic island waterfall… only this water is nicely heated.

After a refreshing heated towel dry and a little grooming, you now go back to your cabana for a small gourmet lunch, freshly prepared by our private chef. Now without you realizing it, this whole time, you received three thorough head to toe physical exams, by the doctor, by the nurse and by the masseuse. You had your blood pressure taken, an EKG performed, your eyes tested for glaucoma, urine and fecal samples tested and any vaccinations/medication administered, all while you remain oblivious to the facts and you can enjoy your little slice of heaven in peace, stress free.

  • "When my dog Blackie was diagnosed with severe pancreatitis, Dr. Nelmapius prescribed a strict treatment plan but also course of laser therapy. Every time he gets the therapy I can immediately tell he just feels better and after each treatment I could see improvement and the outbreaks have become less frequent and less intense almost to the point of a complete cure."

  • ""I must mention Liz. Such a wonderful loving person and dear friend. Liz drove all the way to my house to bring me medicine that I needed for my very sick Shih Tzu, Bijou. She also was so caring to a little stray dog that found us one morning and was in need of special attention. That little dog was in terrible shape and she cleaned him up for us and comforted him"
    Fred and Joyce Pennington
  • "I really liked the attention, including the details, from Doctor N. I also liked the check-up phone calls from Christina and the other caring staff"

  • ""We found a little sickly stray. He has since become our special little dog since Dr. Nelmapius had to do several surgeries on him to fix major damage from abuse that he received before he found us. I have often said I wish I had a Doctor for my health issues that is as dedicated to each of his patients as Dr Nelmapius"
    Fred and Joyce Pennington
  • "I appreciated the time Doctor N. and his staff at Safari took with us. He personally took the extra time to make sure that I understand everything that is taking place."
