  • "Exceptional, professional, caring service! I had been taking my sweet old boxer Zoey to another clinic for several years and was happy with the staff and the level of care there, for the most part. After several weeks of exceedingly strange behavior and a diagnosis of "Zoey is just getting old," I came home from work at lunch one day and knew something was very wrong so I called my regular vet in a panic. They said they could not see her, they were too busy, and that I would need to go somewhere else. They recommended CAH and so that's where I went. They said I could come right away and now I will never go back to the other vet because CAH is so amazing!!! Zoey ended up taking her last breaths there and the doctor and staff were so very kind, sympathetic and professional. Very different than the other vet clinic! Today I received Zoey's ashes and a clay paw print and they are a beautiful reminder of our sweet Zoey! Thank you Community Animal Hospital!!"
