  • "I owe this clinic and these amazing people everything! This is the second time they have taken one of my dogs in on an emergency case and saved them. First was with my little boy who was misdiagnosed as having a brown recluse bite when I went to them because he was bleeding they told me it was a tumor. The second was my most recent visit where they helped my baby girl who was very sick. I didn't think she was going to make it but they got her back into good health. Both times..."
