I run an all-breed dog rescue and PAH treats many of my rescue dogs for routine needs as well as more complex care. The staff at PAH is exceptional - from the docs all the way through the entirety of their staff. PAH provides excellent veterinary care and they are always so helpful and friendly. I cannot say enough good things about the entire PAH staff...I love you guys!
