This is my visit time leaving my cat with anyone other than myself. But nevertheless When Arriving the staff was very nice, and also patient, and the overall Signing of the "new patient documents" was fast and easy, After subsequently picking him up from the office he was his normal, curious and high energy self. Upon getting in the car and leaving, We made a couple of stops elsewhere. I then decided to take him out of his cat carrier just to give him a couple of hugs and kisses. At the moment I couldn't do anything but smile because they gave him a haircut and I also later noticed that he gave him a bath and also cut his nails without being asked. This Place went over and over and beyond. I definitely will be back for medical visits and boarding.Ashonta J.Ashonta J. ★★★★★ Very professional and sympatheticTwilia B.Twilia B. ★★★★★ Very friendly and accommodatingJenny L.Jenny L. ★★★★★ Great timeRicky S.Ricky S. ★★★★★ Fair pricing.Meghann S.Meghann S. ★★★★★ Friendly, fast serviceRosie D.Rosie D. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff, knowledgeable staff, good to my fur babies.
