Don’t just take our word for it…

I already have referred to you!

I loved the follow up! I didn’t have any problems and she healed up great but to know if I did have questions you guys were very accessible. The process was so easy and affordable! I was very happy with the whole experience.

We didn’t have any problems at all. It was a very smooth, simple process.

Thank you so much for your service to the community! I was so freaked out about having the money to get Baby fixed and she was spraying everywhere so I had to get it done ASAP. Your prices are so affordable I had the money to fix her hernia too!

Baby says thank you too! Your caring staff made her feel safe! She wasn’t traumatized at all. She was back to her cuddly and friendly self in no time.

I liked that you were very clear on your web site about what and what not to expect. The post-op explanation was very good. The pictures on the web site were GREAT to explain the steps of healing.

I greatly appreciated the phone call the day after the surgery!
