  • Testimonials:

    My husband and I are big fans of Noah’s Friends. Dr. Brunner and his team have treated our beloved pets like they were their own. The first time I took my dogs to him, he really impressed me by getting down on the floor and loving on them like he had nothing else to do. I think they immediately sensed that they had found an ally and never seemed to have the slightest fear of going to see him. A few years later, we faced the loss of both those dogs within two months. The kind, caring attention he gave them, and us, was simply exceptional. Dr. Brunner always found the time to talk with us in a way that we could understand and comforted us with his knowledge and hands-on manner. We knew he would be there for us no matter what. I have had many vets over the years, but I have never had one go so far out of his way to make terribly painful experiences as easy as possible for us. He grieved with us in the worst of times , and he laughed with us when times were good. Every single individual in the clinic seems to have been hand-picked for their outgoing, attentive and caring qualities. I feel so very blessed to have such a wonderful facility staffed by such a great bunch of folks, all within a stones’ throw of my home. They are just the best!

    Our menagerie of rescue dogs and cats and herd of Pygmy goats have been trusting Noah's Friends, Dr. Brunner and staff, for several years now. They have supported us through the beginnings of new life as well as end of life issues, always with wisdom, integrity and compassion. For your four-legged family members, you can trust Noah's Friends to care for them as their own!

    On May 19, 2012, I brought home my baby, Kai, a beautiful shitzuh. I entrusted her care to absolutely the best veterinarians and staff. Everyone at Noah's Friends treats my baby like she is their own puppy and provide expert care. They are caring and compassionate and you can tell they truly love my Kai and all of the other pets they care for. I highly, highly recommend Noah's Friends. I would not trust the care of Kai to any other veterinary office.
