What Our Clients Are Saying
Absolutely wonderful place! The staff truly care and give ALL the love to your dog
This has been my veterinary clinic for many years and the staff and doctors have always treated my pets with kindness and care.. they have always been professional. The facility is always neat and clean. Check in was quick and easy. All of my questions were answered so that I could understand.
Pete wasn’t too sure about his first day at daycare. He was a rescue so he has some separation anxiety. He tried to stand his ground and refused to walk inside so they had to carry him in. Now he starts whining excitedly when we pull into the parking lot each week and drags whoever comes to get him inside. He loves it here and we love how tired and worn out he is afterwards.
Thanks to Val for helping us shave our cat! She really cares and took the time with our pet who has such a difficult time with grooming to avoid sedation! She must be an animal whisperer is all I have to say. Highly recommended and affordable!
