“My dog is super difficult; although, he’s only a medium-sized dog (about 45 pounds), he has a super scary bark. He’s very scared of new humans and responds to them with extreme aggression. The vet and various assistants and desk staff were all very understanding and helpful. Also, even though he was a new client, they were able to give my dog an appointment very fast. I’d actually called another vet first, but the earliest appointment they could give me was in two weeks, even after I told them my dog was limping and that there was something wrong with his leg. Brenford gave me an appointment for the very next day. The fee I paid was less than I was expecting. I was very pleased with our visit there. I definitely recommend them.” – Kristen C.
