"The staff was really nice. They explained everything in a manner that was understandable without sounding condescending. 5 stars!😉"
"Great place very friendly. Made my puppy fell safe. Definitely going back."
"I switched over to this vet a little over a year ago because the care at our old vet was not the way it was when we first got there. We switched over and we’re immediately treated like family. Our dog loves the consistency of the place and employees that work there. It seems we get the same bunch every time we are there. We aren’t having to wait weeks to get in to be seen also! We have been battling some issues with our doggos health, and they get her in almost immediately to see her! We love it there!!"

There are side effects to walking your pet thatRead More
How Do I Trim My Dog’s Nails ?
Why does my dog resist having their feet touched for nail trims? There are primarily two reasons: one is behavioral and the other is medical. Dogs feel secure when all four feet are on the ground. Lifting the foot off ground and holding the foot in the air makes some dogs insecure and nervous. These behavioral issues are best addressed as puppies by you routinely handling the feet of a puppy every day. The other problem is the feet are painful if the patient has allergies. These are dogs that have a history of chewing on their feet. Even ifRead More
January 5th National Bird Day
Is a pet bird for me? Birds are enchanting and beautiful creatures that amuse us with their curious behavior. They have increased in popularity over the last few decades. Many of them live in our homes without major problems; others suffer tremendously from an unnatural lifestyle. By instinct, birds were designed to soar the sky, gaze from tree branches, and often flock with their own kind. Dogs and cats have adapted, through many generations, to being part of our family. The same may not be said about birds. Even birds that are raised in captivity still possess the wild birdRead More
