  • "My puppy was having massive tummy issues, and I just knew that something was wrong other being a non-discriminatory eater. I had taken her to the vet we used to go to several times with no answers and months of struggle. We decided to get a second opinion and took her to Terrace Heights and poof! We had answers and plans for recovery. Turns out she had a parasite that was causing the problems. Two fecal tests at the other place and they couldn't find anything. I was very impressed with Terrace Heights. Everything from the facility, to the quality and friendliness of the staff. The Vet definitely knows his stuff. It's a great place to take our furry friends. You won't regret it."
