Kind, caring staff. Excellent attention to our little French Brittany.
My family and I have used Town & Country since they opened, and we LOVE the care they provide our animals (both large and small). Thanks for all you do!!
This is the BEST place for pets and their humans. I highly recommend this hospital for large and small animals. They took good care of my horses and dog. They took especially good care of me when my dog was diagnosed with cancer. They held my hand and his paw during the most emotionally difficult part. I love the entire staff for the way they comforted me and Boomer. Thank you Town and Country!

Great clinic with wonderful staff. It is so comforting to take my dogs to a place with knowledgeable caring doctors. When my dogs needed a level of care beyond their expertise they did not hesitate to refer us to a specialist.
