From Happy Pet Owners

  • Prompt and honest service. They didn't claim our dog's issue was any more or less severe that it was. Payment can be difficult to discuss in the moment but they were upfront about what was being done and what possible procedures would cost, asking for our approval before moving forward. Our boy ended up only needing minor care but we'll be using their service again in the future if we need emergency care.
