      • Rebecca Makowski

        I’ve experienced nothing but excellent care from Dr. Deines and Dr. Paxton and staff. From emergency visits to routine care and end of life decisions, they’ve been compassionate and trustworthy at every step. Any questions I’ve had, they discuss with me and make sure I understand. I highly recommend choosing their team to trust with your loved ones.

      • 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.

      • Karlene Hintz Boeve

        ‘Five Stars’ for Dr Paxton as he is a caring, knowledgeable, experienced professional! I had an in-depth conversation around the benefits of Cytopoint injections for my Westie with seasonal dermatitis. Success! Cytopoint was the solution to measurable relief.
        Also I want to share my thoughts on Euthanasia for an aggressive, violent dog. If your veterinarian recommends euthanasia, you should give it serious consideration. Some dogs are not wired correctly. The safety of children, family, & community should be the priority over an aggressive dog. Don’t wait for a disaster to transpire. My family has suffered do to non action of our neighbors aggressive dog.

      • Julee Rae Sarto

        The staff and Doctors are absolutely wonderful! They are going through a tough time with us and have the upmost compassion and technical ability to make this better. I commend them all. Thank you for dealing with my tears and helping with Fred.
