Best medical attention possible! Not only did they care about Sophie, but showed that same care towards me as well. I would highly recommend anyone who wants the best for their pet to experience what I did with the professional and personal care of Dr. Hammes and his staff at Alta Buffalo Hospital. A special thank you to Toni and Alice. They truly do care about your babies as much as you do! There are no words to express the gratitude in my heart for all you did.

Great!

Our experience with the Buffalo Alta Animal Hospital has been great. They are kind, efficient and reasonable on prices. The doctor is great and listens to our concerns. We have not had a bad experience there.

The BEST in Las Vegas by Marsha F. at InsiderPages

We were thrilled to have our breeder refer us to Dr. Brian Hammes and his staff. Each and every one of them are so very caring, not only to our puppy and her needs, but to us as well. The cost is very reasonable, and the care that you will receive is beyond any expectations you may have.I will highly recommend Dr. Hammes to anyone looking for the utmost professional, yet highly personal care for your pet and yourself!
