    • Jen Ely

      We've been taking our dogs here for the least 10+ years and they are compassionate and caring with our pets and very informative when special care is needed. Truly grateful they are our vet.

    • Rebecca Murphy

      Such a caring staff and doctors. They genuinely love animals and are so compassionate. After my dear cat Jade died at age 19, they sent me a condolence package - her paw prints in plaster & a little keepsake bottle with a lock of her hair. It came as a complete surprise about a week after she passed. Warmed my ♥️ more than I can express.

    • Renee Bernardi

      A big thank you to Dr. Paxton for agreeing to be Tessa’s new vet and participate in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. We moved to Michigan from Indiana just over 2 years ago and have been struggling to find a vet willing to participate which meant driving 3 1/2 hours each way once a year to our former vet. Dr. Paxton and his staff are wonderful. So glad I can finally say I have a vet I can trust my fur babies with.
