  • "We’re snowbirds who discovered Eastern Shore a year ago when we were ‘adopted’ by a stray cat. We were so impressed with Dr. Schindler and his staff that we waited until we came back this year to get immunizations for all three cats. Everybody here is fantastic...we’ll be back next year with all three ‘patients’. We’ve recommended them to anybody with a pet.”"
    — Lana & Dave M.
