Quartz Hill Veterinary Clinic
was established in 1989 by Dr's Dave Fly and Bonnie Snyder. The Antelope Valley was is the midst of a contruction boom and growing rapidly. Dr's Fly and Snyder worked hard establishing a practice of caring for many pets for over 16 years. In 2004, Dr. Fly decided to leave the Antelope Valley for a job with the State of New Mexico. He asked Dr. Biggerstaff; who was currently practicing in Rosamond since 1988; to look at his practice in Quartz Hill. Dr. Biggerstaff was an immediate fit into the practice.
Dr Biggerstaff had a similar practice philosophy as Dr. Fly which made the transition from one doctor to the other a simple matter. Some of the highlights came when current clients of the Rosmond office also began seeing Dr. Biggerstaff at the Quartz Hill office.One of the most entertaining stories was when a client was looking for a second opinion and came to Quartz Hill clinic only to find Dr. Biggerstaff the resident veterinary at the Quartz Hill office also!
Dr. Debbie Spencer (Dr. Biggerstaffs wife) joined the Quartz Hill office almost immediately bringing another 20 years of experience in veterinary practice in the Antelope Valley. She has been in practice since 1989.
The entire staff at Quartz Hill Veterinary Clinic works very hard to provide care for the pets and their owners. The focus of care provided at QHVC begins with the pet owners. Each case is treated on an individual basis and the care provided is done so to meet or exceed the expectations of the owner. Dr. Biggerstaff tells his clients, "you are paying me that means I am working for you". This practice philosophy may seem a little different that what you may hear at other clinics, but it is taken directly from the Veterinarians Oath.
Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health, the relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.
I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.I accept as a lifelon obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence. The first duty of a Veterinarian is to society through the assistance to animals.
