The Dr's and staff are just unbelievably truly caring and loving toward every animal and person who is fortunate enough to walk through the front door. Thank you so much for everything you did and said to us and Baby. You made this stressful event go a lot smoother and eased my anxiety about the well being of our Baby. ? Thank you for the swift and caring care you gave our girl. We thank you so much."
    Lorraine Jeziorski
  • "We've used Flagler Animal Hospital since we moved here in 2004. They have ALWAYS been friendly, accommodating, kind & compassionate.They were so sympathetic, Dr. B was amazing! He worked up 3 different treatment options for us, took the time to explain each one & the projected results & challenges. They gave us privacy to discuss what we deemed was the best option for our furbaby.
    After surgery, Dr. B called us to advise of our boy’s (successful) results; then followed up with another call later that evening to let us know he was resting comfortably, then again, this morning to let us know how he did throughout the night. If that isn’t customer service & compassion, I don’t know what is.We are so thankful to have this facility in our community & that they are now a 24-hr operating hospital. Thank you, Dr. B and the entire team. We cannot say enough wonderful things about all of you! Keep up the great and caring work."
