I knew Dr. Ames professionally through his veterinary clinic. He was a kind and caring man. He always treated my dog with compassion and tenderness. I remember the day that we had to put down our sweet dog. Dr. Ames gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye to Taylor and could not have been more caring. Thank you, Dr. AMes, for being such a good man. Peace to the Ames family.

My deepest sympathy to Katrina and the rest of Dr. Ames family. He was probably the best vet I have ever taken my Golden Retrievers to. He was caring, thorough, friendly and always answered my questions. He was a good boss to everyone including my sister, Suzanne Millen. Once he retired, he gave me a good recommendation to Valley Vets and Dr. Shuler. Thank you for being there for all those years.
