When you leave your pet in the hands of others you want only the best treatment. Maxwell has had that treatment over the past five years at Smoketown Animal Hospital. The entire staff has provided expert medical attention with a very personal touch. Max has not only received medical care but he vacations at the hospital and we know he is not neglected at all...as a matter of fact he is spoiled by his caregivers. We are grateful for everything that has been done for Max and we look forward to continuing with their services in the future. On behalf of Max, thank you.
