  • "Great Vet! Love the doctors. The man that retired saved my Chihuahua's life earlier this year. She was attacked by a big dog that has killed one of our other dogs. He took her home with him in some of her critical stages after surgeries and would call every day to check on her, even on weekends. He even met us on the weekend to give us more medicine for her."
