Billie - At our first visit to see Dr Hines he had to give us the devastating news that our beautiful Yellow Lab/.Peranees, Shellie, who is 11 yrs old has terminal cancer and only a very short time to be with us. Dr Hines and his staff along with Dr Vall and his staff showed total compassion and sympathy and gave us extreme support and the best of treatment during the visit. Dr Michael Bauer is the orthopedist at the same clinic who has been caring for Shellie for severe arthritis and has made our life bearable for several years treating Shellie's painful legs. We would be perfectly comfortable referring any of these doctors for care of your pet. They are all the very best you can find.
