Our pets, the old saying goes, are like members of the family.
With one exception: When a dog or cat gets sick, they can't tell you what's wrong. That's why the family veterinarian has become such an important figure in many peoples' lives, offering invaluable advice to keep our four-legged friends happy as long as possible, and when that's no longer possible, at least providing a comfortable departure from this world.
When your best-friend-with-fur gets sick, to whom do you turn? Is there one particular vet in Southwest Minneapolis who has brought joy and comfort to you and your loved ones, including those of the furry persuasion?
