Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in Chino Valley, AZ.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Armstrong and the entire Circle L Animal Hospital staff. When we took our Aussie, Cooper to another vet in the area, we felt that his issues were not taken seriously. As soon as we were seen by Circle L, we felt that Cooper would get the care that he needed. The weekly calls to check on his status are very much appreciated and better than any other vet that we have used over the 50 years that we have had dogs. Thank you, Dr. Armstrong and your staff.

Several years ago we were looking for a smaller country vet and by referral found Circle L and Dr Armstrong. We were breeding and needed a vet who was responsive to urgency. Dr. Armstrong was and remains very competent, knowledgeable, and professional. A holistic specialist, top-shelf surgeon, and agility trainer – the whole package! Unfortunately, the word got out and there is a long wait for an appointment now. But, that’s the price you pay for quality service.
