"I was pleased with the care my dog received for the bite wound on her ear. What most impressed me was how the clinic handled our return visit when the ear continued to bleed. The facility is very clean and modern. The staff was attentive, and the doctors were great. It's comforting as pet owner to know that I have such a great resource in times of emergency."
