  • I would like to say Thank You to Dr. Lyman, Dr. Walters, and the entire staff, my puppy TANK had to have emergency surgery. This staff cared for him as if he was one of their’s, they quickly took him in and saved his life, they made every effort to communicate everything that was going on with him and his progress. I hope not to have any more emergencies when it comes to TANK but I’m happy to know that a quality and caring emergency center is close to home. My family and I Thank You for caring for our pet
