  • Office hours--evening hours for people who work standard business hours.
  • None that I've yet found.

My Siberian Husky has been seen by the veterinarians at Cherokee Trail for the past two years, beginning at 4 months of age. We've seen three of the vets who practice there and all have been wonderful. Our last visit was even better.

There aren't many Siberians in this part of the world and I know they don't see many. When I called to make the appointment I asked that a note be passed to the vet. I wanted to discuss zinc deficiency in Siberians and whether or not my dog was showing early symptoms. Let's face it, it's a rare issue in a relatively rare breed and no one can be expected to know every condition possible in every breed. Not only did Dr McKinnon look it up prior to our visit, she knew the various types and their classic signs. My dog was examined thoroughly and kindly, and fortunately no zinc problems.

When my dog was spayed and had a reaction to a pain medication, we were given priority and not charged for an evening visit. Oh, and evening hours are standard on Mon, Tue, Thurs, and Fri for people who work business hours. They are kind, very professional and worth every dime!

Their facility is always immaculate and the staff is patient and clearly loves animals--not a given in veterinary practices. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!
