Dr. Murphy is a pretty great vet. I personally bring my three dogs there and I worked there for a little bit. He really knows his stuff so you know your pet comes in good hands. Now when it comes to the nursing or vet tech staff, they are as gentle and caring for the sick or post surgery animals as can be. They also offer boarding and grooming. When boarding your dog, they take ti out for walks at least three times a day, now would your neighbor be willing to do that? I've also seen people board their guinea pigs or rabbits and they'll take care of those too.
