It was my first time there and I was taking a wild baby bunny to them to raise. They were so compasionate and very kind. I go to a different vet for my dog. But, seriously thinking of changing vets as these people really do care about your loved one. Love this place and highly recommend them.
This recently was the first time using Dr. Vetter but my little dog was in need of care for a sudden recurring back problem and no one would see him. My daughter had recently started using this clinic for her dogs so I called and they fit him in very quickly that day. It has been a great experience for us and our dog. Dr. Vetter and his entire staff are just great is so many ways.
Brought my Siberian husky in for a check up a couple days ago, and they were so helpful. They answered all my questions, and went as far as printing out a sheet with different DNA tests I can look in to getting done. They also called the next day to check on how mu boy was doing after all his shots.
