“We were traveling through Ukiah visiting family. Our dog had a problem with his paw. We called and they squeezed us in. Poor dog had to be sedated to have a foxtail removed from his paw. We were so grateful. His wound was infected and he was in pain. They made time and our fur baby didn’t have to wait until he got home to be taken care of. Thank you for your excellent care and service!”

“I should have done this a long time ago. I think the love Karen has for all animals is amazing. And the staff, they were so amazing when Lucky Pup (LP) was there for around 2 weeks after being hit by a car. Getting him to eat… they found that he loved chicken. And were so good about giving him his pain meds. And, they were so kind to me. Of course, now if we need him to eat or take a pill, rotisserie chicken does it. He’s just a little spoiled. 🙂 Thank you Mendocino Village Vet!”

“This was my first time at Dr. Novak’s practice. I recently moved to the area and had received a terrific recommendation from my coworker. I immediately felt at home when I walked into the waiting room. I had just worked a long night shift, and I felt like I could curl up with a book and spend the entire afternoon there. My dog, who is usually a basket case at a vet visit, didn’t utter a peep and was just looking around and relaxing in my arms. I showed him a cat outside in the lawn, but he didn’t bark – they just stared at each other for a while. I Was immediately at home with Karen also, and felt like I had met an old friend again after many years. She and her tech talked to my little guy in a knowing tone and were enjoying him. He ate it up and willingly went into the back for his vaccines and a closer exam. The staff just knows how to put animals and their parents at ease. A great experience.”

“I am not sure which Vet took care of our cat. But they booked an emergency appointment for us when not ONE of the three in Fort Bragg would. They took great care of him. We will be returning!”

“I took my puppy in to see Dr Novak for an emergency visit on Sunday because he had a foxtail embedded in his eye. She is incredibly sweet, welcoming, and friendly. Within 20 min all was well with our little guy. Her office is delightfully decorated, and she even offers tea for anxiety she tissues for years… How thoughtful! Thanks sooooooo much, Dr. Novak!”
