I have been using Friendship for years and they have always treated us well. I have to say with the hard decision I had to come to last week with one of our pups, they handled me with grace and compassion.
The staff and vet took the time to talk and explain everything in advance (including an estimate for services and medicines/vaccines.) Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
The most caring vet hospital I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Took care of my Inu from the time we moved here in 2011 until last week when they counseled us in his declining health.
