As winter approaches, many people will "winterize" their automobiles, including a change of antifreeze. Take care to keep both new and used antifreeze in a sealed container, out of reach of pets.

Worth the Drive
Janine Epps from Jacksonville

Both of our dogs are "rescues" and have had their share of medical problems. Our dogs mean the world to us and ensuring they have the best possible care is very important. The doctors and staff at VCA Briarcliff have always given the best care to them and we trust only them with our animals. We have moved to another area of town and still make the drive to Briarcliff because of the comfort level we have with the doctors and staff.
