In 2007, after years of practicing in veterinary hospitals, Dr. Dexter founded Capital Home Veterinary Care LLC, a housecall practice, with the goal of providing exceptional veterinary care in the comfort of home.


"I began this practice because I wanted to offer a more personalized service for pet owners and a less stressful experience for their pets."
