This is probably the best office I have been to. I’m not just talking about for the animals…the customer service from the first phone call, to stopping in to pick up meds, to the moment I walked out and even the follow up call! Top notch. Appreciated that you are able to check out in the room. This is really helpful especially to keep interaction without pets to a minimum. I will be back. This was a wonderful 1st time experience. And thank you to the doctor for following up with a call.

I called afterwards because I thought I missed some instructions and the front desk was able to answer my question immediately but the Dr. also called me back to clear up any confusion. My cat is 19 years old and not once did they tell me to euthanize her because of her age. The nurse who was handling her was the best, she treated my cat with care and understanding.
Becky L., San Antonio, TX
Always have friendly, loving, knowledgeable doctors who spend adequate time with our pets. I love how I can see they actually care for our furry family members. The experience at this office is superb. From being immaculately clean to the care and candor provided by the staff, you have made a lifelong customer. I would easily drive 100 miles to obtain the level of customer service provided by this practice. Well done! (sic)
