Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I have taken my dog to this clinic and Denisa for several years now. I find Denisa to be very thorough and willing to do what it takes to make the situation or circumstance better. She offers suggestions but is not pushy. She really seems to care and I will continue to go to this clinic regularly and recommend others to it."
