    Dr. Cates has saved my Westie's life. We took her to him this past November because she had lymphoma and we were told, by previous vet, that she would pass away within a couple of weeks. Dr. Cates has saved my Westie's life and it looks like she has beat the cancer - he calls her "Miracle Dog" and he is so amazed. Also - Molly just loves him to death! He really is the best vet I have ever been to and REALLY CARES!!!\r\nHe goes the extra mile for you..


    Best Vet Ever...

    I've been to three different vets over the years and Dr. Cates is the BEST!! He is so knowledgeable and caring with my five dogs. His staff is very friendly and courteous. My dogs have had various "ailments" such as kennel cough, lick granulomas, and miscellaneous "owies" over the years and Dr. Cates has always had the answer to get them back to good health. You can tell he really loves what he does because he's so good with my dogs and they love him.


    friendly, knowledgeable, caring, great with my dogs

    I have used Doc Cates for the past 3 years and have always received excellent care for my animals. He saved my dog Kyra who became very ill with pneumonia. Turns out she has a form of acquired megaesophagus. I recommend St. Joe vet clinic to people all the time.


    Very knowledgeable


    pretty far drive for myself
