“I had a very pleasant experience here…..even though it was a very unpleasant situation.They are VERY compassionate here!!!!WILL recommend to friends!!!”

– Zina

“I’m so thankful that the animal emergency & Specialty Clinic is there when we need them. Each individual greets us when they step in the room, told us their name, and what their purpose was (i.e.: “I am here to take vitals,”). I wish that our medical doctors for humans did the same! Fast service by caring personnel.”

– Lisa E

“Dr. Kaihla Parker was phenomenal for my boy Dante. He didn’t make it, but they did everything in their power and made him comfortable at the end. Thank you so much Dr. Parker and the rest of the staff for all of your help and care. If I ever need emergency services again I will definitely be going here.”
