Feedback from our clients

  • ""Our 7 month old Doberman was coughing up food and blood. The vet we normally would take him to wasn't concerned and made an appointment for the next day. We were worried as he was lethargic and not eating as well. We called Bristol and they took him immediately. Dr Spence called me during the exam and went over EVERYTHING it could be. He wanted to try simple things first to not charge us a lot. The X-ray was clear so dr gave him some shots and meds to take home. The next day as dr though"

When we had to put down my most beloved cat they were so sensitive and supportive and gentle with us and I got to hold my cat the whole time. Thanks for all your help in a tough time. Highly recommended.""
