On our first visit, the staff of White's Pet Hospital was very assiduous and attentive to my puppy's needs. My puppy's vet, was very soft spoken but yet was filled with tons and tons of information that was enlightening. She was gentle and friendly with my pup and made him feel comfortable throughout his entire stay.

This is a helpful post, thanks for sharing. I am a new dog owner, and I must admit I am still clueless about training and caring for pets. At least, I know now where to take my dog if ever untoward incidents happen.

I am interested in this idea of having a pet hotel. I have a Labrador retriver and love him very much. But I never thought so far as it can lead to this type of hotel. I leave it to the neighbors, but they did not care for him.
