Boys with dog

“Dr. Yasin left a great and thorough voicemail for us after our dog was neutered. I felt confident that he was very well taken care of. He was certainly not ignored in ICU for his recovery...we received multiple staff comments that they had been back to look in on him during recovery and that is always great to hear. We couldn't pick him up until after 5:00pm the following day and the staff ensured me that it was more than OK, he was fed and they looked after him.”
