  • "I have been taking my 2 dogs to Ferreira Animal Hospital for a few years. The staff is great and the doctor is amazing. I trust them with my eyes closed and my 2 babies always enjoy the treats and cuddles they get during their visits! Best vet office in the neighborhood without a doubt!"
    Karina Boncristiano via Google Reviews
  • "Awesome place!!! ...they actually went out of their way to answer questions we had about routine things and even explain and discuss pet insurances. The office was clean, spacious, and comfortable for us and our dog. And they had treats! Dr. Ferreira was also amazing. She took as much time as was needed to check our dog, talk about all our concerns... I honestly can't express how great our experience was..."
    Brenda Daniels via Google Reviews
  • "I first came across this hospital when my dog got hit by a car. I called before coming in and was told that they were closing but would wait for me and my pet. Everyone was very attentive and knew how to handle the situation... because of my great experience... I never went back to my old vet... Buddy and I are frequent visitors... the staff is very nice and knowledgeable and they are always willing to help. The facility itself is always clean and very modern. My only regret is that I did not know about them sooner. I highly recommend this hospital!"
