    I visited Friendly Animal Hospital this evening and brought in my two Boston Terriers for their first visit and I was super impressed. The facility is extremely clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I met with Dr. M and she was very thorough and you can tell she loves and job and cares for the animals she treats. Their prices were very reasonable and I will visit their clinic again for my future vet needs.
