There are not enough good things to say about Dr. Becker and the staff here. It’s been a tough few months since our last visit but from day one he has treated us as family and done everything in his power to keep my girl Presley with us. My only regret is we didn’t find him sooner. It was a long, tough process trying to find out what was wrong with her but he did everything is his power to keep her comfortable while we searched for answers. I cannot say thank you enough for everything he did for her up until the end. If only more people had the compassion and professionalism this staff provides, the world would be a much better place.

This team of vets are truly amazing! My dane was having problems with labor. I took her to an emergency vet and was told there was one more puppy but it was dead because no heartbeat could be found. They gave her a few shots to help her deliver it but nothing happened. I brought her to my vet (this vet) the following day. They done a C-section very fast and the best part was I was able to be right by her side. But even better yet… They pulled out the pup and he was lifeless but felt a heartbeat. They worked on the puppy what seemed to be forever. He started crying! I am still in shock he made it, and very great full for this wonderful team!
