From soup to nuts it's always a pleasant experience - my dog might disagree on that - but from the human point of view it's great. Everyone is welcoming, and the entire staff show concern and consideration. We travel from Manteo and that's a fair distance but that is offset by the punctuality and readiness of the clinic and the staff. An 11am appointment means an 11am appointment, not an arrival at 11 and a wait until noon. On very rare occasions an animal in need of emergency care has delayed our appointment, but that was never a problem. If my dog needed emergency treatment I am sure that other clients in the waiting room would understand. The only regret from our last visit is that we didn't get to see Maybelline.
We were pleased with our experience. It would be helpful to get some information back as to our dog's behavior/adjustment during his stay, such as feeding, play, attitude, etc. Also, the pick-up arrangements on weekends could be better communicated at check-in.
I appreciated your willingness to listen to me concerning my feeding Karma raw food. After researching it I am convinced it is a much better way to feed. A really natural canine diet. See you in 3 weeks.
