I cherish my cats. Their health and well being are critical to me. I have been taking my kitties (and my husband has been taking his dog) to Standifer's for at least 15 years. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Dr. Standifer is very quiet, but believe me, he takes excellent care of his patients. AND he's honest. I know that any treatment or medication he recommends will benefit my pets. I know that because he has told me when treatment wasn't necessary.
First time customer and felt like I'd been taking my pets there for years. So happy to have been referred to this animal clinic and look forward to returning
Dr Standifer is an awesome veterinarian! I have 3 dogs. They treat my pups so well and also have an excellent groomer. They obviously love animals and helped us so much with all of my dogs especially with my pups that have epilepsy. I highly recommend this place!
