Dr. Homec has always been the vet I trust the most with my beloved furbabies. He takes his time to explain options and makes sure he follows up with you on any labs that he orders. Thank you Dr. Homec!

Dr. Homec takes his time to discuss our dog’s condition. He listens to our concerns and takes good care of our GSD. The staff are great, too. As an ER nurse myself how I wish that the Carter hospital is open for emergencies. My GSD was crying
