Dr Boggs and her team took extra care of our beloved dog and our family during one of the most heartbreaking... experiences of our lives. Empathetic, patient, gentle and realistic about the outcome of our situation. Highly recommend this team. Thank you for caring for our pet.read more

Our Koko was in and out! The Dr sounded friendly enough, and the staff during my second visit was very friendly. My... first visit there was after 5 pm and there was a staff member who seemed very annoyed when I said I had an appt that day. She was outside assisting someone and their cute doggy, then later came and told me my appt was the next day which was fine. I won’t hold her to it bc I know how I feel when it’s the end of my workday but first impressions are everything! Overall I honestly loved the quick and easy experience for my girl Koko! FYI the staff members that assisted me my send visit were different from my initial visit.read more

I would not recommend that you take your pet here!!I took my dog regularly every 6-8 weeks and EVERY time it’s a... different price for the same services! They claim it’s because there was a recent acquisition but most times if you change your prices you’ll notify customers who have been loyal for over 6 years!!read more
