Family Friends Veterinary Hospital | Citrus Heights Speciality & Emergency Vet

  • I live about 40min from this Family Friends Veterinary Hospital. I absolutely love the care my pets receive here. They’re highly affordable, but most importantly provide great care. They are always straightforward and honest about what to expect. I think a huge plus is that they won’t provide any care or charge you unless you’re fully aware of your cost.
