  • Having spent a good portion of my career as the publisher of a regional dog magazine in the North, I spent the majority of my days in and out of various veterinary practices and witnessed both the good and the bad.

  • I took my two Cairn Terriers to Dr. Ruth and what an amazing experience. They did a very thorough history and exam and she and her staff took time to hear what was going on with my pups.

  • I love everything about Sun Dog Cat Moon. It's the closest thing to having at home vet care, except it's quite a drive for us. 🙂 The grounds, the interior and exterior, the staff, the decor - everything and everyone is/are so inviting. The invoices are very detailed and usually include notes so
  • Thank you guys sooo much for taking care of my Rocky boy before, during, and after his surgery. With his age, you know how paranoid I was. I had actually scheduled the same surgery back in February with my old vet, but ended up cancelling it because it just didn't feel right and I was too scared. I
  • I just wanted to say Thank You for the opportunity today to meet with you, Dr. Roberts, and your wonderful stellar team. I must apologize and was unprepared upon meeting you this morning.

  • I am fortunate to have found Dr. Ruth Roberts and her staff. They use laser therapy on my 14-year old dog, Max, who tore the cruciate ligament in his back right knee.

  • “Get the baby gate!” We scurried, but the pup waddled right over to our Great Dane and crawled on his head. He had entered our home and our lives with the aplumb for which he would be known. Once trim and sassy, he would boom out his beagle bay, and I was so proud. Dexter’s days went by and he grew
