Customer Reviews

Martha C.

Central Veterinary Hospital is by far the best veterinary hospital in town, the staff is amazing, professional, knowledgeable, kind, caring, compassionate and committed to my pet's well being. Doctor Dunlap is the absolute professional, his professionalism, knowledge, kindness and humanity are second to none, I trust him with my pet's life!!

Loretta G.

The vets and staff are very friendly, thoughtful, and communicative! We were referred by a friend who went there for years (and now has moved out of the area). They listen to our concerns, are gentle with our shy kitty, and clearly relay details about any of their diagnoses. I highly recommend Central Vet!
