For 80,000-plus clients and their pets, the clinic represents one last hope -- and possibly the difference between life and death -- as Dr. Jeff and his team of veterinary experts complete approximately 30 surgeries a day while they attend to a diverse clientele and their pets while even taking their services on the road to those who cannot access his clinic.
