What Our Clients Say

We bring our GSP here and we have had a great experience with the staff and vets. Sound advice and listened to my husband when he brought her in about what we were wanting and what their advice was about different things. Plus she enjoyed all the attention everyone gave her!

Camille F.

I moved here a few months ago and am so glad i found this vet. I brought my two cats here and they really do care and take pride in their job. My sweet Zoey is finally getting the care she deserves. My last vet couldn't seem to figure out how to handle over grooming. Now she's on the correct medication that is helping! Thank you!

Jason M.

Very nice staff, busy time in early morn, but definitely worth your time... Doc called and let me know by phone her prognosis. He was found at about 8 hrs old and turns 1 May 20,2023. He's great

Valerie B.

They're always so friendly to the humans and pets, knowledgeable, not pushy about treatments, and the pricing is good. They've squeezed us in, in a pinch, which is amazing given how difficult it is to find a vet in this area. We're thrilled to have found Best Friends Veterinary!

Rebekah W.

Our oldest kitty was having some issues and they got us in that day (usually completely booked out for weeks). First time visit for us, everyone kind and professional, our new vet for all of our kitties!
