"What an amazing, professional crew! I'm from Alaska and while on vacation my dog got sick. I was advised to take her to the emergency vet overnight. I was a mess bc I didn't know if my pup would recover. Dr. Carroll was amazing! She educated me on my pet's diagnosis (marijuana toxicity) and assured me she would recover. She went over the cost and answered any questions I had. My dog was in good hands and I appreciate how caring they were and how much they loved on her while she was there."
