    Pet Name: Sayde

    We love love love Dr. Danboise. She has taking care of me for a long time! Even as a puppy (now im almost 12) they took care of me after getting hit by a car and helped to restore my life. They are kind and gentle although I don't like going to the doctor, they take great care of me. They were able to diagnose my thyroid disease and help with the chronic UTI's I constantly have. They are friendly, genuine and again, Dr. Daboise is the best!!!! woof! woof!

  • Cindy's visit to the hospital

    -Linda Karlik from Syracuse, NY
    Pet Name: Cindy

    Dr. Danboise is wonderful with my Siamese, Himalayan cat Cindy. She speaks Cindy's language and is always gentle with her. Dave is also great with Cindy. I've been going to the Shop city vets for seven years so far and I feel fortunate that such a good hospital is located very close by my home.

  • Dr. Bunnell and Hercules

    -Colleen Padula from Liverpool, NY
    Pet Name: Hercules AKA Doot Doot

    Pet Image Dr. Bunnell has been my 11 year old Rotties MD for about a year now. He was dx'd with Kidney Diease as well as Mast Cell Cancer. He recently had to be put to rest, and outlived what any of our expectations were. Dr. Bunnell was a caring, genuine Vet. After that horrible day I felt more "comfortable" knowing I was leaving Hercules with him. I knew he would take care of him. Not just say he would, but I knew he really would. Hercules would always wag his nubby when Dr. Bunnell came in, he felt that comfort with him, and that was important to me. Dr. Bunnell always was there to answer any silly questions I had, and was never put "out" by them. That is a true Vet and animal lover. I just wanted to say Thank you. We have had animals go to Shop City for will over 20 years in my life, and you truly are the best.

  • Dr. Heather Danboise is the Best

    -Rupert Gordon from Syracuse, NY
    Pet Name: Rupert Gordon

    Pet Image I know when my owners take me to Shop City Animal Hospital that Izzy, Michelle, Missy and all the others there will be nice to me -- especially when I am not feeling my best. And then Dr. Heather comes in and is so gentle poking me, looking me over and finding out what is wrong with me. She always calms down my worried Mom and Dad and makes me feel better, too! I love going there! They always know how to get me back to chasing my Frisbee and the cats in the neighborhood. Thanks to everybody! You are the best!


    -Diesel from Syracuse, NY
    Pet Name: Diesel

    Pet Image Wow, I can't believe nobody has written anything about this vet yet! It's great, they had reasonable prices and were willing to work with us to get things into our range price-wise. They explained everything they were doing, and were very good with Diesel (our little guy), I would recommend them to anyone!
