  • "I have 4 dogs.I have been taking my animals to Ospika for 20 yrs or more. I have always found everyone that works there fantastic. I recently had my frenchie neutered and his cherry eye fixed. The neuter went really smooth. Janel redid his cherry eye today at no cost to me. I was very impressed. I would recommend her for all your frenchie needs."
