"This letter is to congratulate the entire staff at AERC.  Because of your incredible efficiency, cooperation and intuition, our Lily is alive today!  We are forever grateful for the diligent and attentive care for our pet.  What we witnessed during our time at your clinic impressed us beyond belief.  Each individual we interacted with was extremely compassionate and understanding during this very stressful time.  You allowed us to visit Lily often, which was very comforting.  Every vet we spoke with was very thorough regarding her condition and progress...


Thank you to all the vets and staff at AERC.  What a great team of professionals!"
