Wonderful vets here who truly love what they do. They are always so gentle and kind to our animals and take the time to talk to me about options for treatment knowing the cost consideration. They understand not all pet owners can afford costly treatments and give guidance without judgment. The vet techs here are also just as wonderful and gentle with a good demeanor and obvious love for animals.

The staff and Doctor Dowd are simply amazing! The price, very good as well. I could not have expected a better place to take my fur baby! They treat pets with tender love and kindness. I was truly happy and relieved when I came here. My dog loved the staff so much, she didn’t want to leave!

We went here because our normal vet was out of town and our doggy was having ear problems. You never know what to expect going to a new vet, but we were absolutely blown away by our experience with Dr. Polland and his team.

Dr. Polland was incredibly knowledgable and his years of experience really show. When diagnosing our dog, he talked us through his thought process, educating us along the way. When recommending that we put her under anesthesia for further examination, he was low pressure encouraging us to do what we were comfortable with. Long story short, our dog’s ear is on the road to recovery thanks to the help and expertise of Dr. Polland.

Our great experience didn’t end with Dr. Polland. The rest of the staff was warm and friendly and it was very apparent that everyone there had a lot of love for animals. Pricing was exceptionally fair.

I would happily go back to Dr. Polland and his team. They are truly outstanding!

We adopted our dog in October and took her to see Dr. Houston and his team for her first check-up. What a wonderful experience! Everyone was so patient and caring. Dr. Houston was very open and honest and we did not feel they tried to push any unnecessary treatments on us. We leave in a very dog-friendly neighborhood and have found many other dog owners that have had the same experience. They just cannot say enough about Dr. Houston. We are so happy to have found them and are confident our little Mimi is in great hands.

Super highly recommended. Not only is this a clean and convenient office, with appointments readily available, but the staff is also super friendly. Dr. Dowd is up on the latest in medicine and has the best bedside manner with our pups, which is very important for their comfort.

Jeff B.

The staff was very accommodating, squeezing me into their packed schedule when my cat had a traumatic leg injury on a Saturday morning. Their pleasantness, explanations, professionalism, diagnosis, and recommendations exceeded my expectations and were critical in not only calming me and my cat but also to promptly receiving the specialist care he needed.

Chris H.

I’ve been coming to this vet for about 20 years for puppy check-ups and medical concerns. Everyone is very attentive and I appreciate all the attention they give my baby boy! I feel comfortable and informed when I come here. Also great that’s it’s right next to a dog wash so you can get lots done in one trip!
