“Amazing! I took my pup for his routine shots & a check up. At my previous vet, this type of visit was around $400. I paid less than $150 here, and the service was so much better! The techs, receptionists & vet were all so kind and welcoming. My pup hates the vet, but they did everything in their power to make him comfortable. I’m happy to say I found my new vet office and I’ll be a customer here for as long as possible. Definitely check this place out.” -Jeanelle France
