Awesome reviews from our wonderful clients.
Wonderful and caring staff. Dr. Sharp did a great job operating on my King Charles Caviler last week when he had a ruptured disc. He took time explaining the risks and what the surgery and recovery would be like. Our puppy is on the mend and we hope he will be back to his old self in a few weeks. I am grateful to have found such a good clinic and staff.

The Doctors and staff genuinely care about animals. Dr. Sharp, Dr. Stec, and Dr. Key and the whole staff recently took care of our German Shepherd who required surgery to repair an injured hip. We couldn’t have asked for a better more caring group of professionals to take care of our pet.
