About the Clinic:
Summerwood Veterinary Clinic has relocated to Generation Park, just across Beltway 8, and is now Generation Pet Veterinary Clinic. We are a full service small animal hospital offering state of the art care and advanced diagnostics. Founded on the principle that by improving the lives of pets, we improve the World around us, our veterinarians and staff take pride in this philosophy, implementing this belief into action by providing compassionate veterinary care. For over 11 years, the caring and compassionate staff at Summerwood Veterinary Clinic have been providing outstanding medical care to dogs, cats, and other small pocket pets, and will continue this tradition as Generation Pet. We want our clients to know that it is our top priority to provide the best veterinary care possible to our patients. Companion animals are more than pets, they are family members. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your pet to the Generation Pet family.

The Clinic Cat - Staff Motivator
Hey guys, my name is Nestor. I am X years old, I live here at Generation Pet and Dr. McCann is my mom who I love very much. She treated me and adopted me when I had a blocked bladder. I have been with her ever since and have enjoyed every moment of it. My hobbies include chasing flies and sun bathing by my new window. I really like whipped cream from Starbucks but apparently its rude to put my paws on drinks that aren't mine. I love to lounge around the clinic, my favorite spots happen to be the sinks and chairs that the techs use all day. Sometimes you can see me sneaking into exam rooms or the front lobby, try to say hi to me before I get caught!
