Boys with dog

“This was the best part of my whole experience when I brought my dog Oscar in on April 9. I have never had a Vet Doctor explain everything to me in detail like that and then physically show me how to clean his wounds and even just how to properly carry him while he's injured. Blew me away the attention to detail this man had. THANK YOU LONG ANIMAL! I will be remaining loyal to your practice. I don't know what we would do without you.—Megan L.”
