Shout Out

“"Thank you for taking care of our swissy, Roxie. We are so grateful to you all for your ideas, compassion, and patience with us while we worked through an incredibly difficult decision in a very short time. We have always brought our animals to you when we had an emergency--usually because they ate chocolate...and we had always been lucky that nothing was ever seriously wrong with our dogs. While we weren't so lucky this time, we were confident in the care she received and her lack of pain while in your care. Thank you. We are shocked and devastated, but our story will always include glowing reviews of your staff. Thank you thank you thank you."”
