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.
Here at Friendship Veterinary Hospital, we strive to give the animals of Fort Walton Beach, the best service possible to ensure they leave happy and healthy after every visit. Our professional veterinary team combined with our top-of-the-line equipment allow us to help your pet in the safest and most effective ways possible. To view all our services, click here.
