My cat had dental work done there. They never called me to say they were removing more teeth than discussed. When I got there the bill was way higher than anticipated and the cat was under anesthesia much longer than I would have liked to know about. They did make that right however. The poor cat had an upper incisor pulled so his lower kept ulcerating his lip. I took him back to be seen because he was miserable and was told another doctor would call to discuss options to help my cat heal. That never happened.He's adjusted his bite since then, fortunately. I'm glad they are there for emergencies though. We couldn't do without this clinic in the area in my opinion.
