Mission Statement:
.: Pleasant Valley Veterinary Services, LLC is the dream of Dr. Mary Stankovics to combine modern university level veterinary techniques with the warmth and personal care of a small town country veterinary practice. This is the vision that makes us unique: that combination of Quality and Compassion.
Country warmth and care:
.: Relationships. Offering a personal first-name care for her clients, Dr. Stankovics is known by all as Dr. Mary. She routinely goes the extra mile for her patients. The relationships she develops are close as she is an active resident of the community.
.: Community. The community says hello to Dr. Mary as she is often seen around town volunteering for local organizations such as FURR (Feline Urban Rescue and Rehab). She participates in and assists local 4-H groups at the Warren County Fair. She frequently opens her practice to classroom tours and gives guidance to individual students about entering the veterinary profession. Every summer she has local student internís work at Pleasant Valley.

Modern skills and equipment:
.: Skills and education. Dr. Mary is continually keeping abreast of the latest techniques and knowledge. As a member of The Metropolitan Veterinary Medical Association she attends monthly veterinary seminars. She is a member of the Theriogenology Society and participates in their annual reproduction conference.

.: Extended skills. Dr. Maryís experience with The Seeing Eye has broadened her skills in the areas of: ophthalmology, gastroenterology, neonatology and canine reproduction. To better serve dog breeders she partnered with Debbie Leach to create Straws to Paws LLC, a Synbiotics certified and AKC recognized, canine semen freezing center. Straws to Paws shares the building with Pleasant Valley Veterinary Services, making full reproductive services available on-site.

.: Location. The beautiful and still rural location of Pleasant Valley Veterinary Services delivers the feel and rhythm of regular folks living life at a pace with breathing space from our fast paced modern world. Welcome is the feeling of the country design of the renovated and modern facility.

.: Time. This country value is evident as soon as you walk in the door as Dr. Mary and each of the veterinarians and staff give you the time to fully examine your pet and explain their care for your complete understanding. You wonít be rushed out.

.: Legacy. The community knew the practice many years ago as one of Dr. Wasser, who sold the facility to Dr. Mary when he retired in his 80ís just before he passed away. The Legacy of community still lives on here.

Consultations and referrals:
.: PVVS regularly brings in a board certified surgeon to do specialized orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. Dr. Mary also works with a specialist in canine physical therapy for post op, performance, and older dogs. When needed, PVVS readily confers with a vast network of specialists, in order to meet your petís specific needs.

The Facility:
.: Dr. Mary kept the warmth when she renovated and modernized the facility. She continually upgrades with modern examination equipment, a redesigned treatment area, a dry chemistry analyzer, laptop based ultrasound unit, a new dental unit, and a state of the art surgery suite.
