I have heard amazing things about this veterinarian office but had not experienced their extraordinary care until I had to go through my baby Scout’s amputation.

Their whole crew: The veterinarian was extremely informative and gave me every single detail and didn’t treat me like I wouldn’t understand them. She did an amazing job assessing him, performing the surgery, and providing proper care. They gave us reduced pricing on the amputation and set us up with a payment plan now that we are home. They also waived the kenneling fees we couldn’t afford and kept him there to make sure he was well after the surgery because of complications. Everyone at the office took the time to give him love and affection and helped him become active after the surgery. They all know my dog personally and treat him like I do. I got regular phone calls to update me round the clock multiple times a day. (I told them to call regardless of the time to update me). In addition to all of this he has been back for checkups, bandage changes, and medications 6 times since and we have not been charged once.

This practice is not a “specialty” practice so to say, but the doctor who took care of his surgery did so as if she were a specialist. In addition this is an office that CARES about the animals and not the dollar signs. I would recommend them to anyone who needed a good vet, whether for checkups or life threatening emergencies.


There are just so many good things I want to say about this place and I can’t find enough words to.
