The doctor did two knee replacements on my dog and did such an absolutely amazing job. The stitches never came undone in a very vulnerable place and the dog was completely normal after both surgeries. Also they are a little bit more for surgeries but they also have the best aftercare which is the most critical when a dog's surgery so they're healthy and come out of the surgery doing well. Thank you!

I cannot say enough about the Dr. Dearden and the staff at Midway Animal Hospital. Our dog got very sick and we rushed her to Midway. We got top-notch care and support. Our sweet puppy did not make it, and Dr. Dearden and staff comforted us and gave us as much time as we needed to say our goodbyes. They were patient with answering all of our questions. They treated our puppy as if she were their own. I have no doubt that if anyone could have saved her, it would have been this crew.

I loved the people working there, everyone was great and loved my puppy. good prices on everything! Really like the doc! she was smart and very helpful. My dog had gotten tape worm 🙁 and the brought me in the back and showed me what to look for, and what to do if my other animals have it. I was very happy with the services, and will be returning!
