"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."

Here is a touching testimonial from one of our clients in Oakdale whose pet, Louie, had surgery at our facility!
"We brought our Louie in maybe two years ago. We learned he had crystals and his ureter was blocked. Your wonderful people operated, and we now have our beautiful tuxedo boy with us yet. I don't remember doctors' and nurses' names, but they were all wonderful. My husband says if pedigreed cats are expensive, then Louie is definitely pedigreed! But he is alive and happy and your people saved his life.
We rescued him from Woodbury Humane Society, brought him home only to learn he was very ill with a cold. That was rescue number one! Our vet brought him through that, rescue number two. Then you folks rescued him the third time. Think he had better start counting! We thank the Lord for all of you every time we drive around the curve on Helmo Avenue. God's blessings to you all!"
Dr. Rose also heads our Sport & Strength Department to provide rehabilitation services to:
