Read What Our Client Say

  • "Have been taking my pets to Birchwood Animal Hospital for fifteen years. The Vets and staff at Birchwood are outstanding. They are compassionate and always take time to answer all of my questions. I have been through serious health crisis with some of my pets over the years and Dr. Robertson has always been compassionate and truthful even when the news was difficult. Her honest advise helped me make some of the best decisions for my pet even though it was difficult and painful. I have also had Dr. Preston take care of my pets and she has also been wonderful.
    The staff at the desk are friendly and helpful. My new puppy loves, yes loves, going to the vet.
    Thanks to all of you at Birchwood Animal Hospital."
    Bonnie K.
