Shout Out

“"Going to AERC was amazing! Not only did they explain things to me in terms I understood but treated my dog like she was one of theirs! I was worried my dog was not going to like the water treadmill, and they made it comfortable and fun for her! Dr. Rose and John make a great team at helping pets recover from surgery. Thank you for everything you did for us!" ”
