Excellent Place
Maria from Quarryville

Thank you Smoketown Animal Hospital! Your Staff is the most Professional and Caring Staff that I have ever experienced. You can feel the love that your Staff has for the animals. There is always someone to talk to when you call and have a concern, and the Office wait is never long. You are there and prepared for emergencies...but calm and encouraging. To anyone that needs Vet Care..Smoketown is the best. They have literally helped me save a puppy as well as helped big time with the care of our pets (even when I was so stressed I should have drove the Staff crazy). Love this place!
