We took our brand new puppy here for his first check up. From the first encounter with the front office staff we felt welcomed and special. The vet techs were attentive and reassuring. Dr. O'Brien did a thorough exam and took time to give advice and answer questions - helping us navigate the first weeks of being proud puppy parents.
