The hospital


  1. As a former vet tech at UVH for several years, I had the privilege to see the inside of the hospital and all that goes on. This place is amazing for clients and especially for their pets. All of the Doctors will treat your best friend as if it is their own.
    When I moved to Flagstaff, I still took my babies to University because I know the value of great vet care. Although they are a little pricey, its for a reason and a good one. I know that when I go, I will have to pay a little more than another vet but I also know that the Doctor will have a definite answer for my pet- very rarely have I had to return for the same thing. That is huge to me with the long drive.

    Congratulations on fifty years!!
