"We want to thank the doctor and staff that treated our Marley who ingested a mothball from somewhere??? We were offered two plans of treatment for him which gave us a choice. They are so compassionate and friendly. I love the fact that we have a choice when we are in need of ER services. Most of all I love the fact that they are so close to our house. Thank you again everyone that helped us that night. Even the other patients in the waiting room were so friendly."

"While we did not make it in time to save my baby, we are eternally grateful for the wonderful staff that showed us nothing but compassion and empathy for our loss. She was not just a "pet", she was my friend. We will miss her greatly."

"The staff at The Cove took wonderful care of our 5 month old ladbordoodle Magellan. He suffered a massive seizure and they rushed him back right away and started working on him. They showed compassion towards us as we had to make the difficult decision to put our little guy down. Thank you for your kind words, patience and understanding during a very difficult time."
