Traveling With Your Pet
I went to Mill Creek for the first time today. Even on this hot day with no power the staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Mears was great with my cat who is afraid of everything and has anxiety. He put me at ease and only did things he deemed necessary without stressing my cat or me out. I'll be back!
We have been going to Mill Creek Animal Hospital for over 15+ years. They vets and staff have always made you feel like you are part of their family. Wehen we have lost pets they were the most caring people. They made the difficult time easier. Dr. Mears and Dr. Gilmore you are the best.
My pups have been patients of Dr. Church for 10+ years. I trust his care & he has been absolutely wonderful through my dog Oscar's chemo. He even called me on his vacation to check on how Oscar was doing. I couldn't be happier and have always recommended Dr. Church.
