"Cottonwood Animal Clinic has always taken has always taking wonderful care of my pets" - Lisa Brooks

"Although we are new patients with you our experience made it obvious that we found the perfect Vet, one we will continue seeing with all our pets for as long as we live here.  The care and love Dr. Forsyth gave our dog, Tybal, the honesty, kindness and compassion you extended to her and to us, was perfect.  It was exactly what we all needed to say goodbye, to grieve our loss, celebrate her life and all of the joyful memories we have of her and to be able to let go and be at peace."  - Karen and John Kienle

"Hi. My name is L.J. and I am a 4 month old Jack Russell Terrier. I just have to "paws" awhile to tell you my story.  (My mom is helping me with this letter). I developed an eye infection and went to see the Doctors at Cottonwood Animal Clinic and was prescribed a medicine for my eyes. Three days later my eyes were worse, my face was swollen and I couldn't stand the pain. My mom took me back and I saw Dr. Cole. Thank You Dr. Cole for your wisdom to discover that my eye infection turned into a rare, autoimmune disorder called "puppy strangles" or sometimes called "juvenile cellulitis".  My mom thought I was not going to make it, but thanks to Dr. Cole and all the wonderful staff at Cottonwood, I am back to my hyper puppy self!  Dr. Cole even called our home to see how I was doing!  AND, mom tells me that they saved my sister's life too when she had bladder stones! Wow, we love them!...you should too!!"- L. J. (and Kathy) Rogols, Placitas, NM

This place is awesome, they saved my cats life! they are very friendly and treated Caleia great!!  - Richard Pruitt

We love Cottonwood Animal Clinic! Dr. Cole has gone above and beyond the call of duty with our Great Dane, Oakley many times! She even came in on her day off to take care of him when he had pneumonia. She really cares about your pet and treats them as if they are her own. I would highly recommend Cottonwood Vet to anyone looking for the best care in town.  - Alaina Squires

 Great vets close to home. - Laura Hady

I've been a client of Cottonwood Animal Clinic for numerous years, through the lives, illnesses and death of many beloved pets.  The quality and consistency of care we have received deserves these words of thanks and praise, and more.  My concerns for my pets well being have always been treated as the clinic's personal concerns as well, and dealt with accordingly.  We have never been sent elsewhere or shrugged off with: "We don't have any appointments, sorry".  Aside from my great respect for Dr. Micheal Forsyth, DVM, the various veterinarians who treated my animals were invariably excellent in their knowledge and practice of veterinary medicine, as well as considerate and kind to me.  Perhaps closest to my heart were the heartbreaking instances when I chose to have a dearly loved animal euthanized rather then allowed to suffer or live a minimal quality life.  On these occasions over the last several years the very exceptional and sensitive Dr. Janine Cole-Arrington has been our guide, gently assisting my pet from this world to the next.  With dimmed lights, lying on a soft blanket, my pet was clam and relaxed.  This special veterinarian murmured soft words of ease and comfort; I stroked my pet's fur and told him how we was loved, and together we sent him on his way.  He blinked sleepily several times, then he lay down his head and quietly left us.  My gratitude to these kind and caring people cannot be overstated.                                                                                          Thank you from my heart, Terra Sneed
