I have used their veterinary services for my own dog. They were very courteous and treated my dog like a queen. The vet even called a few times to see how my dog was and when I didn't have money he still gave my dog her needed treatments. I highly recommend them for veterinary services.
This is a University and they also have a very good book store.(Book store information)
