      I had to have my 20-yr old cat put down today. Today. In the midst of a global pandemic. While town is blockaded. They were amazing. Doctor and tech came to my car. So understanding. So compassionate. Cannot recommend highly enough.

      Great doctor and staff . Very accommodating for my 224lb English mastiff who is fearful. Extremely knowledgeable about all animals. Great prices. Very fair and very honest . Dr Lloyd is very patient with her patients and there humans :). She also removed a major tumor from my guinie pig. Big or small she fixed them all.

My dog who doesn’t like anyone likes going there . Definitely a five star establishment
