All their doctors including Jose, Luciano and Farouk are the best I have met. They are super knowledgeable and caring. The reception service is also professional and so loving! Highly recommended! ❤️

Of your cat or dog needs dental work, just do it! We took our rescue cat Tofu to see Dr. Jose, the cat had visibly rotting teeth, bad odour from his mouth and inflamed jaws. I am grateful to have been advised by Dr. Jose, he explained everything and clearly has huge amounts of love and care for animals.
