Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We'd like to give a very special thank Dr. Porter and Shawna. Our dog had four hip surgeries over the last 10 months. Her surgeries were at other specialty facilities but they have been there for us every step of the way including frantic phone calls from me. We went yesterday to get her staples out and because everything was so icy Dr. Porter and Shawna came out to my car to take them out. We LOVE these people!!!!"
