Dr. Slomer is the best vet ever
Evelyn Carlson from Houston

Sally Slomer has been our vet for 30 years. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but she is the most compassionate vet I've ever met. She had given our rats another 25% lifetime by operating for breast cancer when other vets wouldn't even treat rodents. I truly believe our cats have lived to ripe old ages into their late teens because of the excellent care they have received. Our two rescued Australian Cattle dogs have flourished despite their dismal backgrounds thanks to the the loving care of Dr. Slomer and her staff. I have seen her tear up when a pet is euthanized which as touched our hearts and made the situation so less sterile. The sympathy cards have brought comfort to all of our family when we have suffered a loss. Much thanks to Dr. Sally Slomer, and the entire staff at VCA Ashford.
