Feedback from our clients

  • "Sincere, honest and friendly!
    I first brought in my Pomeranian for a second opinion on her cough and dental issues. She is 11 years old and our baby! My first impression was wonderful, and after meeting and talking with their female dr I was assured I came to the right place! Grace had her dental cleaning yesterday and they called along the way to let me know how she was doing, and called the next morning to make sure she was ok. We are very pleased with the entire office and how they put our pet as their #1 priority! Also, we were previously quoted $700-950 for the SAME work at another office... at MWAH we only paid just over $400! Thank you for doing a fabulous job with our girl!!"
