Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We really miss Zoey. She was loved so much and it's hard coming home and not seeing her wagging tail greeting you everyday. We want to thank Dr. Franklin and her staff at "Your Pals" Pet Hospital for showing so much compassion and love for our Zoey to the very end. We will never forget your kindness and look forward to seeing you again if another dog comes into our lives."
    Kim F.
  • "With three senior mini dachshunds, it is a must to have an outstanding and caring vet at the ready. We could not be more pleased over the last several years to trust their care to Dr. Bonnie Franklin at Your Pals Pet Hospital. With her depth of understanding and excellent credentials, we know we are getting the best care possible for them! Thanks, Dr. Bonnie!"
