Testimonials

  • We have been using Dr. Hennessy for about 5 years and like that she is very knowledgeable about our horses. And that she is always looking for new information to help us with our horses. Plus she is always available to help you with question or concerns about your horses. I also like that she owns horses too so that she understands your concerns about your horses. We would highly recommend Dr. Hennessy to anybody wanting a knowledgeable and caring veterinarian.
