What Our Clients Said

The Vets and staff at CVETS are excellent at what they do. They are kind and have treated our pets like their own. They gave us frequent communication on how our dog was doing while he was in their care. Highly recommend.

Melissa

Went for an oncology appointment and the whole staff including receptionists, Dr. Kraiza, and Ashley were so nice and helpful. Would recommend this clinic to anyone.

Kellie

High quality care after calling late PM since family vet's office closed. Diagnostic tests performed on geriatric cat seemed consistent with what family vet has used with another of our older cats. Concise discharge instructions & already followed up with family vet as recommended.

Libby

Came in on a Sunday afternoon, were processed and seen with surprising haste. Caring staff, great prices, knowledgeable experts. 10/10 will visit again.

Garrett

My poor baby got sick and I brought her in. When I brought her in the nurses took care of her right away. Even though it was a mild case they saved my baby and I thank them for that. This is the best place ever if you have a pet emergency.
