Best Vet in Town! There was something wrong with my dog, it didn’t know what it was, but I called the vet office, explained what was going on, I spoke with Joanne and she fit me in right away! I saw Dr. Kupersmith that day, he did some blood work on MISS MOOSE and the next day about 9am, I received a phone call that MISS MOOSE had LYME DISEASE! I was VERY pleased with his service. Dr. Kupersmith got down to the point and answered every question I had.
