Michael Smith

'Our dog Shadow had to have knee surgery.  Andrew had performed a previous knee surgery on her. It was a no brainer to get Andrew for this one. ACE Vet Hospital was very caring of Shadow. Andrew, Jackie and Debbie were all very helpful. We were kept informed at every stage. Thank you for your assistance. Highly recommended.’
