We believe that communication and information are an essential part of the veterinarian & pet parent relationship. To facilitate this, we are equipped with not only advanced tools for care, but also with advanced electronic medical record systems like Ezyvet and Smartflow. These systems help us transfer information in a moment’s notice and in many cases, real time.
