They were such a help to me, explained everything my grandog Dixie needed and made me feel very comfortable boarding her there for two weeks.
The vet took such great care of my dog Dixie while she was boarding and getting spayed. What a nice group of people to work with.
Because Sunni has always had social problems, finding a safe and happy place for her care and boarding was paramount for me. The staff at Wilkinson has surpassed all our expectations.
They've taken good care of our "babies"- through surgical procedures to boarding.
