It was our 1st time on Saturday 17th July for ziggy's (my fur baby) vaccination. The sister was so thorough with the examination that I didn't have any questions. She explained as she continued with the examination. The tips that she shared oh my gosh including puppy school, YouTube videos and potty training she covered them all.
