    I am very impressed by this clinic. It’s not every day that you get a clinic that is filled with doctors that will actually listen to clients concerns. They also explain their thought process with you and have only the best in mind for your animals. Not to mention they are super affordable!

    I tend to be unimpressed these days with the lack of Customer Service skills in most public businesses. .....Therefore when someone or a group go above and beyond they must be acknowledged.As most of you know I had to say goodbye to Liberty, my dog of 15 years.I went to the local vet "Animal Medical Clinic"Dr. Smart was so amazing, kind, and compassionate as well as his staff. Then a few days ago I received the most beautiful condolence card from the staff & Dr. Smart.

    It was a class act!
    Thank you Animal Medical Clinic of Preston!
    Keep up the good work!
