What Our Clients Are Saying

It was easy to get both my grandbabies’ cats in to get neutered and spayed.
Dropped them off in the morning and picked them up in the afternoon. You
called the next day to check on them. Services were great!

Mimi saw Dr. Cynthia and Lindy, the vet tech. Mimi got her3-yearr Rabies
vaccine and her annual checkup. Everyone was so nice including Andrea who
checked us in. Lindy even carried my cat carrier to my car for me because
it was awkward and heavy! I’m very pleased with the care we got 😻

Overall great experience as a cat mom! I felt like Tawny was in the best
hands and got the best care 🙂

It was Mollys first time; both the vet and assistant were very good with
her as she needed quite a few shots. They made us both feel comfortable,
and the price was very reasonable.

Everyone is always so nice and caring at this facility, and always so
assuring that they will take good care of our babies! We make a drive of
almost an hour to come here because the care is just unmatched anywhere

I was happy with the great communication, reminding me of appointment and
protocol of how to prepare Newton so procedure could go well. Drop off and
pick up were easy and informative. Newton is healing up quickly and is back
to his normal self.

You guys are by far the best Vet I have taken Blitzy to. You are caring and
down to earth. You are honest and straight forward. I am so happy to be
back in this area so I can continue to bring Blitzy in for checkups and
unexpected issues.

The staff were very good about answering questions on three phone calls.
The surgery went well with a great informative follow-up phone call the
next day. The cost was pleasingly affordable. Wonderful experience! Thank

Both the vet and vet tech were extremely friendly, helpful, and asked all
of the right questions. The fact that payment and the next appointment were
able to be booked while we were in the exam room was very helpful as my dog
can be reactive around dogs she doesn’t know, and it kept me from
potentially having to control my dog in the waiting room while trying to

Very great experience at this office, always professional and upbeat staff.

Because your service was prompt and efficient and very professional. You
diagnose the problem, gave me medication, and didn’t charge me an arm and a
leg to do it. Thank you.

I've been going with my dogs to CVH for over 20 years. You're greeted
warmly upon arrival all the way to the best professional doctor care. I
trust the advice and would give a much higher score if the chart would let
