    This is the only place I take my animal family members!!!! The care and passion that they have given my Danes is indescribable. I would not trust anyone else with their care.

    Love Briarwood Veterinary. Dr. Amy, Dr. Joe take great care of our furry friends and the staff is wonderful to work with!

    Cyndi Gunderman - Facebook

    I used to dislike vets, very much. Mostly for their lack of compassion and cold atmosphere. I absolutely love this man, he has taken time to help me understand any medical procedure we have been through, and has provided many lower cost options when funds are low. He has seen our family through some hard decisions and always gives it to me "real". He is a blessing to the community.
