Our dog, Ivan, has a unique situation (heart worms, liver issues, severe weight loss and some hip issues). After three visits to Colonial Park Vet, we decided to seek a second opinion and we were glad we did. Dr. Heather Balmer was extremely thorough in her examination of Ivan as well as asking us about things we've noticed with him. Given the complexity of his situation and the multitude of issues he has, she referred us to a specialist group without hesitation. You could tell Dr. Balmer was struggling with how to handle the case given the multiple issues our dog has, but we sincerely appreciate her sincerity and fast action to help us help our fur baby. Fingers crossed the specialist is able to assist us and help resolve Ivan's multiple issues. Overall, the staff at AHDC was extremely helpful and polite. We are extremely thankful for them taking us in and taking the time to thoroughly examine our dog and hear our experiences with his symptoms the past few weeks. We will be coming back for sure!
