Thank you all for dealing with my blubbering face to see my dog for the first time. I always hate to put people out or ask anyone to go out of their way for me. You were very kind and understanding and willing to help my dog, who was passing due to a devastating diagnosis. The bad news is never good to give or receive, and you delivered it very professionally and kindly. Thank you for the follow-up the day after and the incredibly kind words once he passed. You are all wonderful people who take your jobs to heart. Thank you.

Wow, Wow, Wow. I am watching my parent’s dog while they are out of the country and he needed emergency care on a Friday night. Dr. Heather was incredible. She even called on Saturday to check in and made all of the arrangements for us to have a follow-up during regular hours on Monday. Dr. Becky took over from there and she was wonderful as well. These gals cared a lot and were just great! The facility itself was clean and gave me a sense of comfort that we had come to a good place. And I was blown away by how reasonable the cost of the emergency visit was.
