They Love Us

Family Pet Veterinary Centers are extremely knowledgeable and caring.

Heidi B.

I'm a new customer and I've had nothing but good experiences with FPVC. The vets and techs are friendly, knowledgeable & understanding.

Jodee W.

Made me feel special with my pet! I elected to protect my dog with a wellness plan as lymes disease is on the rise and I didn't have to worry about what was needed, Daisy is just covered.

Quinn B.

My dog, Wilson, gets excited when I say it is time to go to the vet! They are always friendly and caring when I go there.

Jacqueline P.

The Fear Free technique is the real deal. My dog used to be so afraid to go to the vet. When we arrive here, I don't have to deal with the struggle of getting her in the door.

Lindsay B.

Family Pet West and Norwalk have been caring for my dogs for years. The vets and vet techs are awesome.

Anne B.

They truly care about your animal. They also go over everything so you know the cost.

Randy D.

These folks are the best...They assisted us with an animal emergency when we didn't have time to go to our normal vet.

J. Indigo

My senior dog (12 years old) had dental surgery at Family Pet Vet. We had a great experience and I would recommend others to have their pet’s dental procedures here!

Melinda L.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Mathis and the staff in Norwalk. We were referred to her by our regular vet due to her oral specialty when we learned our cat had Salivary Gland Carcinoma.
