From Our Clients

  • "I spent a night at AVES recently with my baby, she received excellent care. Dr. Kline did an amazing job getting my babies eyeball back into the socket. The staff was very caring and understanding. First time to ever go to an emergency vet, so it was a stressful night for momma, but they made it better."
