“I can’t begin to praise this hospital enough!! All the techs, nurses and doctors were excellent in their care of my Scottie Sunny D. I spent more time with Dr Mark Bohling and Dr Sarah Duncan than others, but felt she was in excellent hands with everyone there.”

– Karen B.

“Took my dog buddy and thankfully he was fine but the staff were super kind and helpful and great at explaining things. Super clean and very nice .. next time I have an emergency (hopefully won’t need to, but you never know) definitely will come back for sure.”

– Kaitlin B.

“I would give the Center more stars if available. They were there when we needed them for our sweet Greyhound, and have taken such good care of her. The staff blew me away with their care and professionalism, even at midnight when I would have expected tired and sub-par service. Hopefully I’ll never need to use their services again for a pet emergency, but if the time comes, I won’t go anywhere else. Animal Emergency & Specialty Center is amazing, and I will always recommend them.”
