As a loving pet parent, your goal is to help your furry family member enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. The best way to achieve that goal is to partner with someone you can trust.
The team at Family Pet Hospital is ready, willing, and able to step in and take on that important role. In fact, we’ve designed our entire system of care with your companion’s wellbeing in mind. Whether it’s your puppy’s first checkup, specialized care for your senior cat or any of the milestones along the way, you can count on us.
We begin by laying a solid foundation of wellness and prevention because we truly believe this is the key to longevity. By taking proactive measures, such as annual exams and vaccinations, we can extend and improve your pet’s quality of life. Of course, should the need for additional medical attention be required over the years, we’ve got you covered. Our comprehensive services include everything from advanced diagnostics to surgical care to modern therapies and much more.
We also feel strongly about taking care of the whole pet, not just his or her physical health. This is why our patients also enjoy access to a number of general pet care options. For instance, full-service boarding is available as needed, as is professional grooming. Our goal is to become your one-stop-shop for everything pet-related.

Dr. Gerald Skees
Dr. Gerald Skees recalls chatting with his father about the future after he had finished up his time in the United States Army. Dr. Skees’s father told him that he himself had always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, and he asked his son if he had ever considered the profession. That conversation set in motion a journey that continues to this day—Dr. Skees has been helping pets and their owners as a veterinarian for more than 43 years!
Destiny has always been fascinated by medicine and was even on her way to becoming a registered nurse at one time. When she took a step back and thought about it, though, she knew that something didn’t feel quite right. That’s when she realized that she wanted to put her medical skills and her knack for helping others to use helping animals in the veterinary world! Destiny hasn’t looked back since, and she’s proud to now serve as a veterinary assistant here at Family Pet Hospital.
Growing up, Sydney had an array of pets ranging from cats and dogs to bunnies and reptiles. This made her not only someone who loves animals, but who also wants to help care for the ones in need. In addition to loving her work in the veterinary field, Sydney says she enjoys the people she works with, and the challenges and rewards involved in providing care to pets and their families.
Growing up Alicia always had lots of pets: dogs, cats, tortoises, small parrots, fish, and even an armadillo. But she was especially close to a playful, funny boxer puppy she was given at age seven, and her experience caring for all those animals inspired a desire to work in the veterinary field from a young age.
In addition to working around pets all day, Alicia says she loves being around others who love animals as much as she does. Her favorite part of the job is helping families learn how to better take care of their pets.
