    Excellent care for your pet I came in with an emergency, and the staff is very caring. The doctor was wonderful to my dog and to me. I lost a wonderful pet and friend, but the doctor assured me I was doing the right thing. I would recommend this vet to everyone. In times of great stress it is good knowing that you have wonderful people to care for you and your pet.

    Kelli

    Dr. Brickson was always ready to answer questions, look over results, and answer our questions when working with outside specialists. The staff is unbelievable. My pets are greeted like rock stars at the hospital. Everyone greets us with a smile and the all of my pets past and present are excited to go in the building. They know they are going to be loved. I will never use another vet for our primary care.
