Simon and Ciara
Karen Heinze from Emmaus

Last year Simon, my 10 yr old cat, was sick. I had never been to this vet before, but he needed immediate care. They were able to see him right away. Let me just say, when I walked into the office, I was greeted as if every staff member and vet had personally known me for years! I knew Simon was in the best hands! Ciara was an 18yr old female, my little lady! Because of her age and some medial issues that were starting to effect her health, I had to put her rest. I struggled with this and other options for a week, would call the office every day and deliberate with who ever answered the phone, the agony I was going through! Every time I called, they made me feel as if Ciara and I were all that mattered! I will be forever grateful to this hospital, vets, and staff for helping me get through this very emotional time! We also have a puppy now, Tank, he is 1 yr old June 10th, and I guarantee you, they will be seeing us for many more years!
