  • "I take all of my animals here. Two cats and two dogs. Dr Hicks is great and has even been willing to examine my exotics when I'm unable to make the trip to Birmingham (I brought her a frog fecal to test for common parasites). I have never had a negative experience. Reasonably priced and great service."

  • "Love this place and the employees. We recently lost our dog due to cancer and they were extremely helpful, understanding and crying right along with us as they lost her too. Then afterwards they sent us a signed card expressing our condolences. Would highly recommend this great vet and staff"
