  • "I didn't know this place existed until I was required to get my shelter dog neutered as part of the adoption process. I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of their business. I had another dog and was using a vet in Beckley (less than five minutes from my house)for all of my animal care needs. I thought I didn't need a new vet, but I was wrong!A big thanks to Dr.Katy and Dr. Matt for their life saving skills for my little Jade. He had become ill last night and was severely dehydrated...the difference when I took him in to the clinic and when I picked him up was remarkable! Thank you again for your compassion and dedication for our fur babies!!! Your service to our community does not go unnoticed!"
