  • I would recommend this business

We have used this vet for many years. We do not go to a vet regularly as I am disabled and money is tight. But my dog is 14 yrs old now and we have m brought him in for emergencies lije when hevwas sing by a bee and swelled up so badmmwe just rushed him in as a tiny puppy and they took care of him. They have always been very friendly and the vet was very gentle in handling our pets. That is the most important thing to me, handle my baby with care, he is a big part of my family. I have orher dogs and our Rosa, a jack russell had seizures, imwas sick with breast cancer at the time and my young son brought him in and they gave him medicine and ecplained everything to him.
