Why Choose Us
At Woodruff Road Animal Hospital, it is our mission to provide compassionate, personalized veterinary care for our clients and their beloved pets in order to strengthen the human-animal bond and service the community at large.
We believe in the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". We try our utmost to practice courtesy, respect, patience and sincerity with everyone, including our veterinary associates, our clients, our vendors, and the animals we work with.
"The most important aspect of our practice is the relationship we build with our clients and their pets", says Dr. Deborah Perzak, who purchased Woodruff Road Animal Hospital (WRAH) in 2008. Since then, she and her energetic, gifted staff have offered a wide variety of complete care services for dogs, cats, and a variety of "pocket pets", such as rabbits, hamsters and gerbils.
Dr. Perzak has a very special interest in cats. "I believe passionately that cats get the lesser end of the stick in veterinary medicine. Cats need veterinary care too, not just when vaccinations are due". Her overall focus includes wellness and preventative care for all pets, including nutrition and weight control.
"A veterinarian is analogous to a pediatrician. Little children can't talk and neither can pets. We have to be a voice for the animals", says Perzak. "At Woodruff Road Animal Hospital, we have a special interest in pets from the beginning of their life to the end. The relationship with the client is as important to me as the relationship with the pet."
