The vets and techs, even the receptionist, are all exceptionally friendly and professional. I really feel like they care about me and my pets. They took great care of my cat, even with curbside service. They were personable and empathetic and the vet came out to my car personally to let me know what she thought and to listen to my concerns. They took into consideration what I had to say and looked into my concerns. They were thorough and quick to jump onto any concerns they had to get ahead of any issues, especially since my cat is older now. I’m so glad I chose to come to Prima Vista for my cat’s care.

Prima Vista Animal is the Best animal hospital we have found in St. Lucie! We needed to get both of my dogs vaccinated the same day so they could go to the kennel before we left to go on vacation, the next day. I called. They made sure that they fit us in with absolutely no notice at all! They were so kind.
