7.  Feedback
We want to provide a pleasant and affordable pet care service for all pet owners without the need to wait for a long time. Clients and veterinarian should feel happy after the consultation and surgery, making each day or visit everybody looks forward to. 
Therefore, we advise prior appointments. 
Emergency surgeries like Caesarean deliveries are a main reason to delay your appointment. We seek your understanding.

In older dogs, yearly blood health screening, urine tests and dental scaling can reveal diseases that can be prevented.
