"Why I do what I do." My first pet, Bailey, lived to be 16? years old. He was a rescue dog with multiple health issues yet he lived a long life. My goal is to take care of your pets as if he or she were my own. I would like each and every one of your pets to live long healthy lives as my first dog did.
