Do you feel like your pet is slowing down due to old age? Their slowness may be due to a lack of motivation due to pain. Advanced Care Veterinary Services can increase your pet’s quality of life through rehabilitation services and pain-management treatments. Advanced Care Veterinary Services was started in 2005 by Dr. Stramel as a mobile business. The brick and mortar building was opened in 2013. It is the only facility dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of painful conditions in pets and large animals in the North Texas area.
