This is my “go to” place for animal care! I have quite a few rats and when one was bleeding from inside, they took her right away as an emergency drop-off. They called me at every stage to tell me the details of what they found and the options available to me, even being conscious of “keeping a budget”. They even keep what could potentially be biopsied for a year in case I need to know what went on with her. And she was home the same day from emergency surgery! The caring nature of the staff is evident from the first step in the door. I know I don’t have to worry when I take my ratpack there.
