We love Dr. Clayton! We’ve been through a lot together! Our family has had as many as 3 labs at once. We’ve had them as puppies and seniors. We lost our oldest recently and Dr. Clayton helped us through it. He’s caring and knowledgeable. We HIGHLY recommend him!"
The precise genuine care for our pets and our family as a whole sets Dr. Ross Clayton and his wife Dr. Anne Clayton apart. We appreciate their attention to detail and prompt assistance.
