  • "Dr. Doherty was very helpful with the skin issues George was having. He was patient when George kept trying to hide, and he taught me how to get him to eat a pill. He took all of my concerns seriously and took detailed notes for their records on George."
    Kayla Silvasy
  • "So happy with the kennel here...they know my dog personally and always provide me with updates on his behavior :)"
    Sabrina Nowling
  • "They were so kind and engaged with my dog when we came in, to take a tour. They let us wander around and take our time just getting a feel for the place. There was no pressure to schedule an appointment. They wanted us to truly feel comfortable there"
    Carolyn Rasmus
  • "Every time I walk in, the receptionist is happy to see my dog and me,
    Dixie. They don't even have to ask for our names which makes me feel like I
    am leaving my dog in great hands. This past visit, I was stressing over a
    big business trip and was running late, and they were willing to stay open a couple of minutes to help me out. I moved further away from Boyd Lake Vet Center several months ago but will continue to drive out of my way because of the high quality of care and customer service they provide!"
    Gus Sanchez
  • "Thanks so much to the staff (and groomers) for taking such good care of my cat, Norman during his visit. There are very few groomers who will even accept cats, but Norman was welcomed with open arms. And his fur was so soft and silky after. We will be back!"
    Amy S.
  • "Love this facility and the staff! They are friendly, professional and treat my little dog with love and kindness. I have used boarding services, grooming and of course the vet services there for four years . Dr Carrie is great and I know my fur baby is getting the very best care. If you are looking for quality care for your animals definitely give them a try 😃"
    Becky T.
  • "Dr. Carrie was extremely helpful, thorough, and determined to help when I brought my beagle in for an emergency appointment. The team got me in right away, and helped my beagle for an hour and a half without interruption or delay. I was so thankful for their help during the stressful time of a pet's illness. I recommend their team to anyone who views their animals like a true member of the family."
