From a very frightening first visit mid October which led to a 3 day hospital stay, multiple exams and X-rays, medications and special diets, and keeping faith in this practice that I knew provided excellent care, my 8 year old Golden came through whatever caused his sudden illness well, and without surgery. (unfortunately, the issue was never completely diagnosed). ALL the vets who cared for him did so with as much compassion for his human as for him. I can't thank them enough for their compassion and excellence in care, with a HUGE expression of gratitude for Dr Ludwig who looked after my best buddy many times and was as thrilled as I when he saw him 2+ weeks later when Sawyer was almost completely better. I can't say enough great things about this entire practice.
