We moved to the lake last year and immediately sought out a quality veterinary office to attend to our three dogs and cat. We found Dr. Brad and Dr. Becca to be highly professional and caring as well as their staff. When our 13 year old shorkie recently passed away en route to their office, we appreciated their support and final care of her remains. They are responsive to questions and situations which may arise and they have time for you. We are fortunate to have them as a viable resource in this community.
