Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Exceptional care, professional, yet the most compassionate, friendly group. Would not hesitate to recommend."
    Melody J.
  • "Our little pack of three are so well cared for at Caring Hands! They have the most compassionate doctors, and our babies get so excited when they get to go to daycare. They also provide excellent care of them when we need boarding. When our kitty needed surgery they gave us several options and didn't pressure us for something we couldn't afford. When we had to say good-bye to our beautiful old lab, they treated us with so much care and love. The care and love they give, regardless of the services, is above and beyond and we love them."
    Rhonda P.
  • "The staff at Caring Hands had never met me before my dog passed and they treated me like I was an old friend. Very caring respectful all the way through the process. Even received a sympathy card for our family hand signed by the staff. Would recommend this veterinary clinic to any pet owner."
    Carrie M.
  • "Our primary vet, animal hospital and boarding center. Have only had great experiences here with our dogs, and been customers almost 15 years. I highly recommend it for your pets."
