Riverbank vet at River Oak Veterinary Hospital

  • River Oak Veterinary Hospital has always been there when I need them. Dr. Shaner and his wonderful staff go beyond. They have seen me through my bad times and good times. When we lost our little Zoie Marie it was a very gray day for us. Dr. Shaner called me during the time of our loss and he always took the time to speak to me when I would drop by.
