My fur baby was treated here with a serious condition. The entire staff were efficient, compassionate, and absolutely wonderful! I called a dozen times to check up on my little one and each time they were friendly, polite and straightforward with updates. Very professional and caring all around. They worked with my budget and took great care of my animal. 12/10 would recommend. Thank you so much Fresno Pet ER!! – Hotaru Hakai (Google Review)
