We have 5 pets, so we spend a lot of money on veterinary care. I would recommend this practice to anyone. They always make time for you if your pet is in distress, and everyone on the staff, from the front desk to the techs. to the vets, are first-rate!
The veterinarians, vet techs., and staff always provide excellent service and "bedside manner" to our three dogs. Durham Animal Hospital is the best and I will definitely take my pets there again. Thanks for a job well done!
When we walk through the door at Durham Animal Hospital we know that we are among friends. Jack, Fritz and Eli give Durham Animal Hospital 12 paws up and thank Dr. Cagle and his wonderful staff for their kind and thoughtful care.
