Client Testimonials & Reviews

Our team here at Valley Veterinary Emergency & Referral Center values the feedback we receive from our clients. We've cared for thousands of pets since 1998. Here's what their owners are saying about us.

I had a very positive experience at this facility in the midst of a difficult time with my pet. The facility was clean, the staff was kind, the doctor was knowledgeable, and the overall environment was very comforting, again, in the midst of turmoil. I hope you never have to use an emergency vet, but if you do, I would recommend this facility.

Our animals, and we, are always treated with the utmost compassion and comfort. The staff and doctors are truly wonderful. From intake to treatment, explaining the diagnosis and follow up, they step clear, concise, and always answer all our questions. Sadly, we also have had to use them for end of life, and always receive the same compassionate care. We can't thank you enough for always taking the utmost care with our family.

The entire staff is great! From the second you walk into the very minute you leave, they are always so compassionate. All of my questions were answered promptly, and they never fail to treat my pets as they would their own. HUGE thank you to the staff at VVERC. Highly recommend this hospital and the very educated staff members.
