Every question I had the vet tech had an answer or if she didn’t know it, she went to find one.

The vet was able to quickly identify she had an old injury and arthritis. She gave me medication options going over the pros and cons and recommended giving her an injection over pills. The pills can be hard on a dogs liver. I opted for the shot. They drew blood for lab work. Labs came back, and the vets intuition was spot on my old girl has liver issues. The shot was a better choice. My dog also liked her, and my dog doesn't like most people. I would like to thank Elwood Animal Hospital for helping my best friend. She is walking much better and is more active again. Your kindness is appreciated. My dog says woof woof!Daniel H.Daniel H. ★★★★★ Awesome vet! They are great with my dog!
