I took my dogs here for year on referral from friends. However, everytime they had problems, I seemed to be paying out the wazoo for stuff that I didn't feel really needed to be done. But I felt obligated to let them run endless tests and put my animals on endless special diets that I could only buy from them. When one of the vets left and started her own practice, I began to take my dogs to her. So, while the vets are good, they are a little to thorough for me pocketbook.
