    Kay
  • "The veterinarian actually showed love and compassion with my pup. He has a true love for animals. Which is rare to see. Being an animal rescue I have been to many vets that hurry you through and do not show love for animals. Doctors, take time to go the extra mile to research problems with our Dogs. Explain treatment required, at a reasonable cost. Staff members, are polite and knowledgeable."
