Doctor Amy has cared, with affection, intelligence and skill, for my beloved feline companions for over 35 years! She visited our Leo for his annual check-up last week (yes, he is in wonderful shape); I always enjoy these visits; and she cares for my grown-up daughter's Romi as well. Doctor Amy and her staff are always responsive, dedicated to the health and happiness of our pets; I am very appreciative of all that CityPets does for our family, feline and human.
