Testimonials

  • "I was living in the SF Bay Area for several years, and returned to this area, and needed a good vet for my cats. I nearly went into heart failure (of the good kind) when I was presented with my first bill for a very sick kitty. I'd have paid twice what I paid in the Bay Area, and the care was just as good! The staff never fails to make convenient appointments or squeeze me in when I have a sick kitty! <3 Drs. Armstrong and Krambs!!!"
