Don’t take our word for it,
here are some of our reviews!
After my pup’s first appointment today, I am so pleased, they are now our new vet. The team and doctors are so friendly, professional, and just downright amazing! Wish I could give them 10 stars. They gave us more answers in a few hours than our old vet has given us in months. If you're looking for a great vet for your fur-baby, Cheval Animal Hospital is that vet!
Very friendly service, both in-person and over the phone. Very quick responses to both phone calls and e-mails. Great communication with pet owners, including care plan pros and cons. Most importantly, very professional, compassionate care for their patients.
The entire team in this office is amazing. We are new in town and we had an emergency with one of our fur babies and were lucky enough to get referred to Cheval Animal Hospital. We got excellent treatment, everything was explained to us so well and each team member was so compassionate and friendly and kind. It is so obvious they love animals and love what they do. I watched one team member doing things one-handed because she was holding a dog that was hurt and she wanted him to feel safe and loved. How beautiful is that!? The vet is wonderful, the front desk is awesome, each tech was phenomenal. We look forward to continuing the relationship with this team! Thanks to all for the great care!
