Everyone there was so sweet to our dog! We adore her and it’s nice to have a vet that does too :)
Had to visit here when our cats got sick after moving. They were able to accommodate us quickly and everyone when we came in for the appointment was efficient and courteous. Helped fix our poor little guys right up!
The knowledge level that the doctor and staff had when caring for my sick bird was so reassuring. They knew exactly what to do and explained every test and procedure to us. Thank you to the entire office for helping save our baby.
I take my bunny rabbit here and they are very friendly, professional, and really care for animals that come in. They also have others services available at decent prices.
I have dealt with Dr Gonzalez and her staff for many years and will for many more to come.
