We came to this vet for the same reason...much more affordable spay/neuter for our pets. We've continued to come back for regular shots and checkups and the staff is always friendly and helpful and the doctor seems very honest and NOT pushy about doing every test and procedure, which I've experienced with other vets in town. They also send reminders on shots due, etc. I'm about to have to have my new dog's throat scoped for a pre-existing condition she had when we adopted her. I'll report back on how it goes with a more in-depth procedure.
