We are not from the area but we heard wonderful things about Dr. McKee and his staff at Southwest Animal Care Complex -- so we took our 13 year old Great Dane Mix for a removal of an enormous tumor on his leg. Other places told us our beloved dog may lose his leg if we tried to remove the tumor. We are happy to report our dog had a successful surgery and is walking around just fine. Dr. McKee and his team did a great job in making us feel comfortable during such a stressful situation for our family. We value his surgical experience and expertise! Thank you Dr. McKee and everyone at Southwest Animal Care Complex for making Bubba comfortable again!
P.S. He already misses the grilled chicken treats!
