Testimonials

  • "I can’t tell you how grateful we are that we have such awesome vets! Your patience, communication, and above-and-beyond care is just incredible, and I know Hammie and Bear are in great hands."
    Jena W.
  • ""Brody usually is terrified of the vet, the second he walked in they greeted him with smiles, love and cookies, this was just the receptionists. The Dr and assistant were also phenomenal! They explained everything thoroughly and were very generous of Brody's needs. They treated myself & Brody with respect, they truly love animals and are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend that anyone with a pet goes to this vet! They aren't a vet, they are family. Jessica & Brody""

  • ""Dr. Anita Zifer made what I thought was going to be very emotional day by having to put my dog down. But she was great and was very patient and explained to me how we could treat my dog and not have to put her down. I just can't thank her enough for everything she did for us today. And think she is an excellent veterinarian! Thank you again!""
