  • "Dr. Sallie Thurber is a fantastic veterinarian. I have had her as my vet for more than ten years. She knows the importance of treating the owners as well as the pets. Her expertise in all areas of pet care are phenomenal. Her knowledge and ability to do all kinds of surgery, preventative protocol, and the importance of proper nutrition for animals is outstanding. She has performed many unique surgeries for me that most vets would not attempt. Eyeballs - lacerated, ulcers, cherry eye repair, lens repairs - eyeballs returned to perfect health every time, never a removal. Prolapsed Rectum, Huge Inguinal Hernia repair, Umbilical hernia repair, C-section, with the ability to deliver naturally after section. Spay/Neuters and the list goes on. Having been a professional dog breeder for 2 2 years and doing rescue work for both dogs and cats, have given me the opportunity to see and experience all of her great work as a Vet."
