Dr. Butler has been caring for our 14 year old Pugsy for over a year. She is the most caring doctor and happy we found her. So blessed to have her taking care of Pugsy to keep him going and keeping him comfortable during his late years.
You guys are the best!

We’ve been coming here for about seven years, and we feel like they’re our family. Ruby got very, very sick and had to have surgery. We get excellent care here, and also they hold your hand through some tough times. It’s really a wonderful place.

Wonderful experience. The staff are incredibly professional, caring, and detail oriented. Our daughter's cat is traveling to her overseas and they ensured that the cat was well taken care of, and also researched and ensured all paperwork was filled out and prepared. Thank you very much!

All of your providers, from the greeting at the front desk all the way to the doctors, are so amazing. Everyone truly cares about my dog's health and well being. I wouldn't trust anyone else with our sweet little guy!

Care First at Glenwood is the BEST! This practice is simply superb- caring & capable! My experience is consistently excellent. Every doctor & staff member I have met has always been top-notch! I consistently recommend Care First to my friends seeking veterinary care for their beloved animals.

You guys always take such great care of my dogs, thanks SO much. I especially appreciate that you have always been able to fit Jessie into the schedule whenever her skin issues have acted up so much that she needed to be seen.
- Sarah (Jessie)
Dr. McConnell and team are the best. They have always treated my dogs like family. I would recommend Care First at Tryon to any new pet owner or anyone looking for personalized care.

We had an unusual situation with Rocky and all of the staff couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. I can't think of a single way our experience could have been better.
- Gail S (Rocky)
My cat is not a fan of going to the vet, but this visit did not seem to bother him at all. I was already very happy with this veterinary practice before this visit, but if possible I think like them even more!
