I was greeted by staff within minutes of my arrival. Service was excellent and no long wait. Staff were very friendly. I was given a good report on how Laz was during his process.

Dorothea Galloway

Chase told me that he loves it there. He shared with me that there is no there place he would rather go for his shots. Chase has been going to this facility for a few years now and honestly it’s a great place to take your pet.
