Barbara darnell. Thank you so much for treating my raina. And my 2 new babies... Update. They are excellent but a bit shy. Raina just looks at them. Lol. They are very sweet little gals. I hope with time they trust they are in a loving home. Its not an easy start for both but they do get near me when they get fed. Ella is more confident than hannah. However they make me try harder for them... ��� thnk you so much
I have a 16 yr old blind dog that needed masses removed. I was having trouble finding a vet that would even consider helping him. I happend upon the clinic while shopping and couldnt be happier. As long as i have a furry friend they will be going to the shelter island clinic. You just know your in the right place as soon as you walk in the door..
Took my little dog there for regular check up and dental work. Did not realize how expensive that would be but can not complain. Doctor and staff exceptionally caring and kind. They called a number of times while she was recovering. Great experience overall and would recommend without hesitation.
We love our vet. She has seen our pets on a moments notice before. At times she saves us money by not testing our pets with extra tests they don't need. They work great with my two hyper dogs. The staff is very friendly and know us by name. It is always a welcoming experience at this vet office.
Such a wonderful caring staff. Dr Darnell truly cares and spends time to explain diagnosis at length. She’s neat:)
