From Our Clients
"We were very impressed with everyone on staff. We ended up having to euthanize our sweet dog because of an injury resulting in paralysis. The staff was very sensitive to our situation and offered their condolences several times. The staff explained every option to us including costs. We found them all to be very professional and caring. I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone needing emergent care for their pet."
