  • ""I came here for the 1st time cause my dog had an ear infection. They staff was very nice and friendly, the doctor was excellent and the office was clean. I use to take my dog to the Army vet. But I like this new vet a whole lot better. I will switch over and will now continue to take my dog Honey to Paradise Animal Hospital. When I came in. I was all stressed out and upset. Because I'd just found out that my mother in law in Illinois had just passed away. So while in the vet office I was constantly on the phone trying to make family arrangements so we all could go back for the funeral. The doctor and staff were so kind to me and my dog. They showed much caring and concern for me and my dog...""

Our lab that has been with us for 14 years crossed over the rainbow bridge. they were very compassionate and understanding of what we were going through.
