  • Our sweet Maggie was not herself yesterday, and within the hour of bringing her to Caring Hands she was in emergency surgery. The staff did an amazing job caring for my doggo and updating me throughout the day. Yesterday we almost lost her, and today my baby is snuggled at home with the family. Thank you again to everyone involved in her care!
