WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
If I could give them 1.000 stars I would. So thankful that our vet referred us to this place for my horse's surgery. Dr Zacharias was so amazing, he patiently explained the entire process from start to finish. Sara Hall was super helpful from setting up the appointment to allowing this crazy horse lover to stay through the entire process and keeping me informed. I am so extra when it comes to my horses and they were very mindful of that. Thank you so much for everything!
- Patty E.
We felt welcome as soon as my horse and I arrived. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly, explaining everything to me before it was done. I will definitely return and will recommend this facility to friends and family. Dr. Hoffman was amazing!
