First Of Its Kind
At the time, Tucson did not have a multi-specialty veterinary group for patients with multiple or complicated needs. As a result, pet owners were required to travel between several veterinary clinics to care for their animals. The goal of SAVS was to make exceptional veterinary care accessible to local pet owners.
In 1994 and today, SAVS is guided by four pillars: patient care, teamwork, education, and excellence.
We are committed to providing the highest level of patient care delivered with compassion.
As individuals, we will treat each other respectfully and communicate to effectively achieve the highest level of teamwork.
By increasing and sharing our knowledge, we will be better tomorrow than we are today.
We will strive to exceed expectations in all that we do.
We are committed to helpful knowledge and compassionate interaction to all we serve.
