“Initially recommended by the adoption agency, First Avenue Vet is now our regular vet for both our hounds. They are very patient with both the dogs and owners, always willing to go the extra mile to explain what is going on and the various options for our pets. I would highly recommend them to any pet owner!”

Brought my dog in for a rash, and ended up getting some vaccines updates as well. Very lovely staff, great covid procedures, and they were sensitive to my current budget (a little tight right now because of covid).

My dog seemed to really enjoy it too. She loves everything, but she also loved this place.

First Avenue Vet was great with our initial wellness visit. We recently adopted 2 rescue cats and Doctor Temple provided a thorough exam to both cats and offered clear explanations of tests, shots, etc. We could not enter the offices due to COVID but Dr. Temple called us and walked us through the initial exam results. We appreciate the attention from First Avenue Vet, including the follow-up call to see how the cats were doing and the welcome letter. We are glad to be part of the First Avenue Vet practice.
