  • "Dr. Ward was wonderful! We came in on a Saturday; so thankful to be able to get an appointment. My dog was exhibiting very odd behavior and I knew something was wrong. Dr. Ward ran bloodwork, checked out everything, and came up with a treatment plan. She spent quite a bit of time with us and explained everything. She knows my dog and also could tell that she was not feeling well. My dog is doing much better now. The staff was great too."
