"The staff at The Cove took wonderful care of our 5 month old ladbordoodle Magellan. He suffered a massive seizure and they rushed him back right away and started working on him. They showed compassion towards us as we had to make the difficult decision to put our little guy down. Thank you for your kind words, patience and understanding during a very difficult time."

— Kristen Froehlich



"This is Mrs. Chapman. Mr. Chapman and I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of you that helped Shadow-Jack. He is resting comfortably now and is happy to be home. Once again, THANK YOU!"

Joe Joe

"Having to say good bye to our Joe Joe was the hardest thing we've had to do in a very long time. The COVE provided us with quality care from our first encounter in August and even after Joe Joes passing. The beautiful letter signed by the staff that cared for Joe moved me tears. I am confident You will find THE COVE to be a State of the ART facility blessed with a knowledgable and compassionate team that will provide you with all availablehealth care options so you can make the best decision for your family and loved one."

"The COVE has become a welcome member of our family and our Veterinary Service Provider of Choice."
