This was not a routine check-up and the staff and Dr. Carlson responded with the attention, quality and friendliness that is the standard of this practice. The promptness of the morning tests and follow-up later in the day were indicative of the consistent superior care we have come to expect and appreciate.
Dr. Rich Carlson saved my dog’s life recently and he is a wealth of information. Dr. Carlson also treated my other dog for a number of years and prolonged his life comfortably once he was diagnosed with kidney disease. Dr. Carlson is extremely sensitive to the quality of life to all animals. Dr. Carlson not only saves animals, but also saves the family’s lives who so dearly love their pets!
I have been a customer for a long time with various pets. I appreciate your services and that I don’t have to wait long to schedule an appointment.
Great service! I will definitely be back. I already booked another appointment. Also great website! Very easy to add my info online. I much prefer that to filling out a long personal Info form in the waiting room. Much quicker!
