"Always willing to get us in when we have an emergency. Dr. Barks is great!"
"Took our Quaker for a well visit. Stephanie was extremely patient and kind. She took her time to explain things. She was extremely thorough. Highly recommend her. We have not had that experience with a different one in the past. Even our Blue was talking to her."
"Great place very friendly. Made my puppy fell safe. Definitely going back."
"Cornerstone was able to get my cat in the day I called. Very clean facility, paperwork was a breeze to fill out. Was afraid I would be there for awhile since Gus was being worked in but I was in and out. Dr. Stroud was great with Gus and took time to explain everything to me. Overall great experience."

National Dachshund Day is June 21st

In fact, the name Dachshund is German for badger hound. TheyRead More
