Should have never left
John Dalton from Westerly

We left Turco's a few years ago because basically without Turco primarily running the place anymore and missing his outstanding care, we thought we would find another local vet clinic and save a little money as the prices went up significantly.

Having said that, I had to put down my dog tonight for something that most likely would've gotten picked up my Turco's and the staff there. My dog had to suffer for 3-6 months for something that should've gotten diagnosed based on symptoms we discussed up at Ocean State.

After this, I truly wish I had never left because the overall care of my dogs dwindled as a result of not getting the truly professional care I got there.

This is a mistake I will not make again when I am ready to have a dog again.

Thank you Dr. Turco for the years of good care I received. Those were the best years of my dogs lives.
