EXCELLENT CARE!

“I’ve taken my Doberman, Baker, here 3 times now, and we have seen both Dr. Gidda and Dr. Sparkman. Both vets are very kind and show a genuine love for animals. 2 of the 3 times I have gone have been for acute issues (a dog bite and a swollen ankle), and they have always offered multiple options for treatment, instead of jumping to the most expensive option. The 3rd time I went was just for vaccines and a general check-up, and I was pleased with the treatment that time as well. This vet is very affordable, but they also provide excellent care. The vet techs are also lovely. I recommend this vet to everyone, I love them so much. A great alternative to the expensive VCA vet offices that seem to be taking over.”
