  • We love our Vet Sarah

    -Mande from Orangevale, CA

    Callie and Porter are mini Aussies that are a year old now. Over the last year they have been in all kinds of trouble. From fox tails in eyes and noses, to worms, eating whole socks and bones and furniture! Dr. Hobbs is the best, my dogs love her, she pays attention and seems concerned when needed and when not needed. Which is good or I would have gone broke by now. She always calls me before she leaves the office and seems very well up on education for my little ones. Our family would like to thank her for making us feel like we are a part of her family =)
