DO NOT RECOMMEND. WON'T RETURN.My mom is terminally ill, and her 14 year old kitty needed her vaccines. The kitty also... had an ingrown nail that had to be removed. Those services were taken care of. Problems were we had an appointment and had to wait 30-35 minutes in a room that smelled like cat pee. It was terrible. I also felt the ladies were not friendly. No one seemed to love on my mom's cat in the exam room. In addition, the doctor would not allow me to finish expressing my concerns regarding the kitty before she rudely interrupted me. Not a pleasant visit. Will not return for any pet more
