Testimonials

  • "Thank you! I’ve used other home vets but you are by far the best."
    Nadine G.
  • "I can’t tell you how grateful we are that we have such awesome vets! Your patience, communication, and above-and-beyond care is just incredible, and I know Hammie and Bear are in great hands."
    Jena W.
  • "Dr. Anderson is one of the most caring vets we’ve known. Even our 18-year old cat, Oliver, immediately took to her–he articulated his affection very loudly and showed his appreciation by sharing something of a personal nature. Despite all of that, Natasha called him a “good boy.” We love Dr. Anderson!"
