From Happy Pet Owners

  • My pup Fiona has had both CCL’s fixed in her hind legs by Dr. Hassinger. He has been straight-forward about everything from the start. I couldn’t be happier with what he has done with her. The staff is also patient and kind, you can tell that they really love every animal that comes through those doors.
