  • "LLAMC is the best place in town for any pet needs. Their DVM’s are incredibly experienced, compassionate, and smart. My pup Sadie day boards quite frequently and honestly gets as excited to see the receptionists and techs as she does to see me. They are all so caring it makes parting with her so much easier!"
    Faith M.
  • "The Dr.'s and staff are top notch!!!! Our dogs are not only pets, they are also family. Lover's Lane treats them like their own. We cannot thank everyone there for all the excellent service that we have received. The only reason I gave them a 5, is because I could not give them a 6. LOL"
