“I have had many experiences with vets and found most helpful but I have never found one that has gone out of their way to help both owner and dog as this group does. Keep up the good work!”

-Jan B.

“We have had a wonderful relationship with Lafayette Animal Hospital since 2010. Three dogs and ten years later we continue to count on Dr Arsenault to keep our canine family happy and healthy. Love the staff and the flow of the office. Never have had a negative experience of any kind.”

-Marianne S.
