  • "My pup Goon is so afraid at the Vets office.... (he’s a pit bull) I wanted to try an in-home service! And this was perfect... Goon was more comfortable and less stressed in our home than I’ve ever seen him.... the Dr and assistant were professional and put us both at ease! I'll definitely be using this service again and I’ll definitely be recommending it to others... thank you guys so much!"
