    Absolutely Amazing, have always been there for my doggies, even did an emergency leg amputation on one of my dogs in the middle of the night. Will continue to come back, and recommend.

    Sara P.

    They was wonderful, even got an appointment the same day! They didn't rush me in and out, they took their time and did their job well. As soon as I walked in I felt certain they care about animals!

    Carol Ann M.

    "I called Dr. Donna after hours and she answered my questions about my dog Charlie’s labor. It means so much to me to have this comfort! Most of you who know me know that Charlie is my shadow. Thanks to the Shaw’s she will be shadowing me for a long time!!! A huge thank you to them for taking great care of my girl.
