Testimonials

The dedicated owners, Veterinarian and Vet Techs who go above and beyond to care for their patients. Upon reflection when I say above and beyond, it’s not really a good expression because truthfully there is no above and beyond in this field. No matter what is set before them it gets worked out whether it be day, night, weekends, or holidays.

All 4 of our fur babies come here. Excellent care! One of my cats who hates everyone except myself and my husband, she let the vet techs and doc both pick her up with no issues. I was shocked! Will continue coming to this office for all current and future pets
Aireal Jurgens

Dr Skelton and his staff are the most caring individuals you could hope for to entrust the care of your fur babies to. Thank you for all the care and compassion you have demonstrated to us over the years. I would not trust the care of my babies to anyone else.
