Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Abby, our 4 year old Miniature Schnauzer, had cruciate repair surgery on her right hind leg. After 6 weeks, she still was not using her right hind leg. We heard that Ellwood Animal Hospital had a water tank treadmill and decided to bring her in for an exam and therapy. Dr. Maro examined Abby and suggested laser and water therapy. After her 3rd therapy session, she started using her right hind leg. Now, after her 6th session, she is able to chase squirrels again! We are so deeply appreciative of the staff and Dr. Maro at Ellwood Animal Hospital. They are very knowledgeable and have a genuine concern for the quality care each animal receives. I, Abby, also want to say thanks for helping me walk on all four legs. Now I can chase the squirrels and birds like I did before!"
