Great and Caring Service for our Dog
Sal and Connie Rosano from Surprise

We live in both California and Arizona with our Lahso and Poodle mix, Beethoven. When we discovered that he had what appeared to be an infection to his upper gums, we sought out the VCA El Mirage Animal Hospital since it had been recommended to us.

We were not disappointed. The staff at the facility both from our original contact and at the office were kind and helpful. Dr. Waltman, conducted his examination and provided us with all the options for our pet's care. His concern, advice and follow up were truly a great service and we certainly will continue with them and recommend them to anyone who may need such assistance.
