"Experience was excellent! Made time to see a foster kitten with frostbite immediately and provided excellent care. Dr John took time the next day to leave a voicemail follow up call to ensure understanding of care. Excellent experience as always by all involved."

"Animal Medical Center on Crown River has been my Siberian Husky’s vet for almost 10 years, and they’ve always been great to my pets. Service is always top notch, and for the couple of times I’ve had to use it, Emergency After Hours has been very responsive and helpful. Never trying to sell things that weren’t needed."
