Testimonials

  • "We have been taking our dogs and cats here for at least 10 years and we have always been happy with the care we received. We like it so much that we travel 30 minutes out of our way to go there. Originally we were going to see Dr Betty Payne only, but if she is not available we have been happy with the other doctors as well. The staff are efficient and friendly. We have also used the kennel for our animals when we were on vacation and would do it again. So I highly recommend their facility."
