Vancouver vet whose opinion and expertise I trust

 
Dr. Anderson has treated my rabbit for a number of dental problems, including a mouth infection and needing his teeth trimmed. I take him to Dr. Anderson because he is a knowledgeable source of information, has a lot of expertise and takes time to clearly explain what needs to be done to help my rabbit. I feel assured that I am taking my pet to a vet whose opinion and expertise I can trust.

Good at treating not just the animals, but the owners, too! Dr. Anderson is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain things.
