I had an emergency on my baby. She had a loose tooth and was up all night and wouldn't sleep. Knowing this I knew I had to fast her in case of surgery so I did a walk in the next morning and transfer my records from another Veterinarian office. Not only were they compassionate to Rita's needs, they quickly got her into surgery the same day. They truly care about their patients. I have no words that can express my gratitude. Rita will be coming here from now on for all her care. Thank you so much Dr. Procell and RVT Drew.

Very clean facility with thoughtful doctors. My puppy broke his leg in two places and had to have three pins placed. I was so concerned but he was treated well and is walking around like it never happened.
