“New facility is very professional in appearance! Doctor went way beyond what was expected in describing our cats problems and options for dealing with them. Had never met this vet before Sunday evening, but he represents Long Animal Hospital and Emergency Center very well. We wouldn't go anywhere else! — Ginny S.”
