  • Thank you to Animal Emergency & Specialty Center for your excellent care of our cat, Alex. You took great care of Alex during his radioactive iodine treatment.

  • I cannot day enough wonderful words about this place. We had to go twice, this past weekend being our first overnight stay. Nothing was done that shouldn’t have been or the team felt was unnecessary. My kitty is stable and is going to be around for a few more.
