  • "We just moved to this veterinarian after our favorite Vet of 15 years retired. They are great. Dr. Kohnen was really nice and thorough. We were able to make a next day appointment, were seen promptly and were given adequate time and attention. I also appreciate their fair prices and offering of Care Credit, which offers interest-free financing for costly procedures."

  • "I wholeheartedly endorse Dr. Kohnen and his entire staff. They are extremely competent, compassionate, and caring. My dog Daisy has been a patient there ever since I got her and she's now ten. She's been there for routine wellness exams, immunization updates, spa treatments, boarding, and even dental cleaning! The best recommendation comes from the fact that she both enters and leaves the animal hospital with that little tail wagging; her doggie "smile" speaks volumes to me and is exactly why I "
