• I have been taking my rescue rabbit to Dr. Alexander at ACAC for the past six years. I found ACAC through rabbit.org's vet recommendations page and could not be happier. I firmly believe that Dr. A and her staff are the reason that my sweet bunny is approaching her 11th birthday and in pretty good health for a senior bun! She means the world to me and I know that Dr. A both understands that and supports it.

  • ACAC is hands down the best vet that I have ever been to. Dr. Zechar is the only vet that I have ever met who was able to diagnose my corgi with Addison's disease. Without her knowledge and expertise, I wouldn't have found an answer to why he was constantly getting sick as no other vet that I visited even suggested this as a diagnosis. The fact that she wouldn't rest until she could give me an answer speaks volumes in my book.

  • Thought I would drop a note about the incredible care that my babies have received here at All Creatures animal clinic. I can't recommend them enough, the whole staff is so kind, loving and on top of their game...they have taken wonderful care of my girls and I couldn't be happier!

  • I took my sugar glider for her very first checkup. Dr. Alexander looked her over and was very good at handling her, she didn't even try to bite! Dr. Alexander was very knowledgeable and friendly and after just one visit I wouldn't think to go to a different vet!
