We are proud to welcome Dr. Andrea Winney

Dr. Winney enjoys pet wellness care, internal medicine and surgery; but most of all, she enjoys caring for people by caring for their pets. Dr. Winney has a little black mutt named Ellie, a rambunctious Golden Retriever named Lemon, and a pretty little kitty named Loa.
Dr. Vigil is a 1985 graduate of Michigan State University. His patience and kindness have served him well over the last twenty years as a housecall veterinarian. Whether he is seeing a new puppy or euthanizing a beloved pet, clients appreciate his caring bedside manner. His skill as a doctor and his ability to "read" animals allows him to provide a reasonable treatment plan for his patients. When Dr. Aaron is not poking or prodding his patients, he enjoys riding his bike or working on his native plant garden. He can identify most native birds calls and loves to explore nature.
