Jody Pruitt from San Diego

I took my Carter to Dr. Bowerman 4 yrs ago when I thought I was going to have to put him to sleep. I had been seeing a vet who basically was taking a lot of money from me, but not helping my dog with his severe allergies. Dr. Bowerman immediately put me at ease and told me he could help. He has taken amazing care of Carter in our worst times and has always found the best treatment for him possible! I wouldn't know what I would have done without him. Carter continues to have his ups and downs, but Dr. Bowerman always knows how to help. Thanks to all of you at Peninsula Vet Clinic. YOU ROCK!
