Dr. Taylor, Kim and the entire staff were excellent with my sweet shih Tzu mix Chloe. They were compassionate for an abused stubborn old rescue girl and listened/cried/supported us through more than four of the five years we had her. Dr Taylor was with us through it all, up until her last breath. Thank you all for your kindness and compassion. We will definitely be taking future animals here. Also- Amanda is the dog whisperer of groomers. I felt so safe with Chloe in their hands as she had to be sedated for grooming and was a handful in general. Thank you again.
