Dr. June and her staff are awesome - I recommend them to all my friends who are pet owners. She is the best!
Dr June is, in a word, excellent. She is sharp, kind and absolutely one of the best vets I have ever known. I would seriously consider going to Urban Pet Rx for all your pet's needs, but especially if you need special care.
