First, Dr Hunter can be a bit abrasive, so what? He is an exception veterinarian and I would NEVER take my animals anywhere else. I have rescued animals and he has helped. I have had animals dying of cancer and he has more than kind and helpful. It is not a mistake that Hunter Veterinary Clinic has been voted #1 in the city of Spokane for more years than I can remember. He has earned it. There is no way to make all the people happy all the time and unfortunate things will happen, plus grief can cause people to refocus wanting answers. Dr Hunter has experienced all the above and is still the most helpful and kindest man I know. I have recommended his clinic to friends and strangers alike fo over 40 years and will continue for the next 40+.
