Testimonials

  • Dr. Johnson and her staff were amazing with my pup Lucy. We came in for accupuncture and added on cold laser therapy for my pup's injured back. Lucy improved dramatically after just 1 treatment and I'm convinced that her issue will be resolved soon! I am very impressed by the level of service and care at Santaluz Animal Care and I highly recommend them!
