Amazing staff! I just took my baby to get her canine influenza vaccine, and they absolutely spoiled her rotten and treated her like family from the second she stepped through the doors. I could not be more thrilled with our first experience there!!
My boyfriend and I bring our dogs here and everyone from the front desk to the vet techs to the veterinarians makes our dogs feel special and comfortable. They take their time with each dog and never make us feel rushed. Absolutely recommend.
Just a shout out to say thank you as my pup was in doggie daycare and required one vaccine. Dr. Ortiz, not only provided this but also she called me afterward to tell me our pup was doing well.
