Let me preface this review by saying that I have a LOT of years of experience in the fields of veterinary/rescue/spay neuter/animal welfare shelter management/pet nutrition. 15+ years experience to be exact.
Long story short, I’m incredibly selective about veterinary practices that my pets go to (fur, fin, scales all apply). The only reason I was even in the market for a new vet was because I recently moved out of state and had to leave my beloved and trusted vet of 21 years. Don’t worry, we still keep in touch and I still have the clinic’s phone number memorized.
But I digress…..while at work last week, I mentioned my pupper was shedding tumble furs (more than typical husky X in the summer months of you can even believe that’s possible). I was referred to this practice by a co-worker (Nash’s mom) and I’m so glad I took her up on her recommendation.
This practice blew me away. Not only was the facility incredibly clean, the entire staff was top notch. Lynn, the vet tech was great and Dr. Rafferty was amazing as well. Their knowledge and blend of Western and Eastern medicine was so refreshing and despite a lot of years in vet/shelter management/pet nutrition based positions, I learned some new things about protein types (cooling vs heating) and how they affect different dog breeds.
Blaze, my border collie X husky mix loved everyone there. Dr. Rafferty was incredibly knowledgeable about both breeds, even laughing and pointing out when Blaze displayed behaviors that were so tell-tale of his breed make-up.
While I hope my pup heals quickly, I must say that we honestly look forward to our next visit and that the Vet Hospital at Davidson has earned another client for as long as we Iive in the area.
Thank you, Dr. Rafferty and staff!
