“As a veterinarian, I can say that I trust Dawn, and One Smart Dog, explicitly. She is knowledgeable, caring, and professional. She has a wide range of expertise, but also works closely with the entire health care team of each client, to ensure the best possible outcome. I don't hesitate to send cases, and highly value her opinion. My clients have had wonderful success as well!”
