I just had my sweet bunny neutered and I feel really good taking my fur friend here. Dr. Edgerton was great and the secretary is so kind and helpful. They called me a day after the procedure to check on him and that means alot.

We are doing everything that we can to accommodate as many patients as we can, and this includes continuing to operate curbside (we can see more patients this way)

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. At this time we have decided to continue curbside appointments, which will allow us to stay open so we may continue to provide much needed healthcare to your pets.  Thank you for your understanding.
