  • "The people that work at Critter Care really are committed to providing the best care possible to the critters brought to them. It starts at the front desk with well trained, friendly staff and carries forward into the exam rooms. Dr Lindley is so good with the animals and so are all her staff members. I know if my Sadie could enunciate her feelings, she would say "2 thumbs up "!! As it is, her wagging tail and grinning mouth say she is well cared for there. The groomer on staff, Jenn, is fabulous!! Bring your animals in, because Critter Care is a very good clinic and boarding facility."
