I have had dogs and cats for over 50 years, and even worked in an animal hospital for 5 years. I wish I had known The Family Pet years earlier, for I have experienced nothing but superb and genuine care. The word ""Family"" is perfect to describe the amazing care they share. Not only just for your pets, but yourself as well. Dr. Valas amazes me on how quickly she can find the underlying cause of the cause of an illness, and knows exactly what to do to remedy. Some times there is no cure, but allows your pet and you savor the last moments with true compassion. Her staff is equally as genuine and compassionate sharing outstanding service with a smile. Some of the above and beyond services are 24/7 emergency and the use of laser for surgery and other procedures, which allows far less trauma, bleeding and faster recovery. There are larger facilities with more staff, but my experience has not been as intimate or as genuine in care as you receive at The Family Pet Hospital!
