They were very thorough, professional and efficient. Dr found a problem that I wasn’t aware of and took care of it right away. I am very satisfied with the level of service, their knowledge and professionalism. Would highly recommend them.


Our first visit was easy and simple. The staff was great and treated me and my dog with respect. I will happily go back to this clinic in the future.


I absolutely love this place, friendly, caring, and extremely considerate to the needs and feelings of the humans as well as the animals..


Everyone friendly—-very little wait time. No pressure to buy extras—-and this hasn’t always been the case. Zoey was greeted warmly and with hugs! Our dog LIKES going to Cedar Ridge and can hardly wait to get in the door, even if she is getting shots!


Every time we go to Cedar Ridge with our pets, everyone always treats us and our pets like they are family. They provide excellent care and service and are always attentive to our needs and concerns.


We are always very happy with our care at Cedar Ridge! The staff consistently treats us familiar and their love of animals is obvious. We recommend Cedar Ridge to every pet owner we know.
