Client Testimonial

I am so impressed with this outfit, that I don't know what to say first! The service is excellent. The front desk staff are professional and friendly. The Vets are as good as they get and they really seem to care about your pet! They have now added grooming and boarding, at a competitive price. The new groomer is fantastic! My dog usually has to be muzzled. (he bites groomers)  She has the magic touch and no muzzle was needed. He's only a 15 pound dog, but, a bite is a bite! I would recommend this company to anyone who wants that extra TLC and great medical and cosmetic care for their beloved pet!
