  • "Dr. Pete and staff take such pride in caring for the animals and educating thier owners. My family has gone for 20 years to his office, I myself with my own for 6 years. My animals are safe and loved when I bring them, there's no where else I'd consider taking them. I'll do the 30 mile drive for that."
