  • "Choice Veterinary Service was amazing to work with. Dr Shaw took good care of our fur baby and did an excellent job with her surgery! The staff loved on her the whole time she was there and I felt very comfortable that she was being taken care of! The surgery was a success and the follow up appointments were a breeze. I would recommend Dr Shaw and Dr Steely for all of your veterinary needs!!"

  • "WOW excellent service from the whole crew at Choice Veterinary Services!!! Jody was incredible at getting our seizing dog into the building as fast as she possibly could. Such professionalism from everybody. They were all so comforting and understanding. Thanks to Dr. Shaw and all his crew, really the best personable people. You all made a tragic happening, comfortable enough as sad as it was."
