If you live in the vicinity or even if you don't there's no better place to take your pet. The staff are wonderful and assuring. Even in the waiting area its a pleasure to see other pet parents and their beloved "children". A great opportunity to swap stories about the antics and other cute little things they do around the house. And once in the examining room be prepared to stay awhile, not "wait" a while like other places. There's no bum rush exam and consultation here. The vet no matter who he or she may be takes their time and makes sure you know what the condition or illness is, what may have caused it and the prescribed treatment. Some of my friends and loved ones might still be around if they chose medical treatment here instead of many of the hospitals afforded to us humans. And some of you know what I mean.
