Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Murphy has always been very kind with me and my cat William. He found a lump in William which led me to finding out he had bladder cancer. He recommended a special diet which kept William alive longer. I also have to write how friendly and thoughtful the staff at Pilgrim Animal Hospital are."
