New GRAPE Member Spotlight
Doorbell Vet
Veterinarian, Dr. Terry Allen and Practice Manager, Samantha Knorrmeier joined GRAPE to make a difference for the seniors in our community as well as their cats and dogs. Pets can reduce stress, increase social interaction and physical activity and overall, enhance our lives. We pride ourselves on being a local business who understand the needs of pet owners, especially those in our senior communities.
Doorbell Vet is a unique kind of veterinary service that offers care for your furry family members in the comfort of your home. Our team will come directly to you and spend one-on-one time addressing your concerns and getting to know your cat or dog. This service is especially fantastic for pets who may have a fear of traveling or being near other unfamiliar animals as we can better evaluate behavior and conditions which may be masked or aggravated by their visit to a clinic. We understand how difficult it can be to get your pet to the veterinarian's office, besides having to worry about timing and transport, so let our team come to you!
In order to better serve our senior community, we offer a special program with a discounted rate for senior facilities. If your facility is interested in starting this program, please feel free to contact our office at (585) 441-0200 or  info@doorbellvet.com  to learn more! We are always happy to answer any questions, so please, don't hesitate to reach out.
