Columbia River vet testimonials
  • My dog suddenly in the middle of the night had an onset of very severe vertigo. We called several ER vets and CRV answered their phone in a timely manner. The techs were very helpful and advised to bring my dog in immediately. The vet and the techs communicated with me very well and helped my pet tremendously that evening.
