  • "Yesterday we had to make the agonizing decision to have our dog, Gibson, put to sleep. Dr. Rowland spent about 2 hours just talking to my husband and I. When we were finally ready, he was so kind and caring to our little buddy. He let us stay in the room. Once our little Gibby was gone, he never once rushed us to leave the room. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dr. Rowland, for taking such good care of Gibson all these years. And thank you for being such a kind, caring, and compassionate man. Thank you for the gentleness you showed Gibby at the end. You are a remarkable man!!"
    Kathy D'Atri M.
  • "Doc Rowland and his staff are absolutely amazing!!! Today he took the time to see me and my 12 week old foster puppy before his surgeries, we were concerned about some issues she was having with her furever family and he eased my concerns as always!! I foster for a rescue and he has seen all my fosters and taken care of them as if they were his own. I also have my own fur babies who I wouldn’t trust with anyone else. He’s so knowledgeable and caring and he always puts a smile on my face � Simply put I just � that man!!"
    Jodi Knott-G.
  • "Thank you Doc Rowland for your heart of gold for pets and your seemingly top notch experience and recommendations for our furry friends. The office staff has always been very nice too. You care and it shows in your practice. <3 much appreciated"
    Beth Anne K.
  • "Dr. Rowland and his staff are amazing! They saved the life of 2 of my dogs. Over New Year's this year my 8 month old puppy nearly died and Rowland was a godsend. 5 years ago it was recommended that we put our other dog down and I saw him for a second opinion. He knew within 2 minutes exactly what was wrong with her and had her back to healthy within a week- all she needed was a $20 medicated shampoo. We will never go anywhere else."
    Megan D.

    Mark D. G.
  • "Amazing staff and an amazing Doctor. You can tell how much he cares for the pets that walk through the door. Was nervous about my JRT not being too friendly with strangers and he assured me he understood the nature of the breed which made me feel a lot better. Was kind and gentle and very upfront about everything. Definitely will be coming here for all my pets needs from now on."
