Dee and vinny from freehold

We have written in the past about the wonderful care that our beagles receive from everyone on staff. Not just the doctors, but the whole staff. The greeting at the front desk from everyone immediately makes you feel at ease whether your pet is arriving for just a well checkup, or for illness (as one of my beagles is going through). Since 1993 we have been going to Freehold Vet hospital, (having met Dr Gloth through our children) and loved the rest of the staff as the years progressed, and will continue to recommend anyone to do so as well. Dedicated, committed, compassionate, friendly are ALL of the doctors and STAFF as well. THANK YOU ALL for always being there when our beagles need you.
