"I wish I'd asked the vet assistant what her name is. At one point she leaned down and kissed Gold Guy on the head. I thought that was such a kind and loving thing to do! Each staff member is very thoughtful and considerate. Thanks so much!"  ~ Yvonne N.  6/28/14


"The business inside and out was amazing. So warm and inviting. Even my dog was ready to walk right in and it was her first visit. The staff was very professional but personal and friendly. I feel the service was above and beyond my expectations."  ~ Kim S.  5/23/14

"From the time I called to make the apt I was treated with kindness and respect...Dr. Thorne is for sure the "Avian Whisperer"....his complete exam of my injured bird did not leave her stressed in any way and the long ride home was uneventful."  ~ mj  5/6/14

"Both Catherine, our beautiful little Russian Blue cat, and I were treated in a professional and caring manner. Dr. Thorne and each member of his staff is always pleasant and loving toward our kitty, willing to answer any questions or concerns to put us at ease. Catherine is a wonderful and healthy cat and it is, to an extent, due to our visits to Alderbrook Pet Hospital and of course her love of playing and purring." ~  Rose O.  2/20/14


"Dr. Thorne and his staff were fantastic. Hubie Brown's first appointment was very thorough, informative, and fun. We really appreciated Dr. Thorne's advice on puppy raising as it's been over 12 years. Thank you for a wonderful experience." ~  Johnna G.  2/20/14
