  • "Only vet I trust with my horse! Explains everything in detail and I always feel more educated about my horse/horses in general when he leaves. He spends a lot of time with your horse and I think his prices are reasonable as well. Highly recommended."
    Katy B.
  • "I've been using Vic and his vets for years. He's knowledgeable and able to work with a variety of budgets. He helped me when my mare broke her jaw and we've been loyal clients since. AEVS is the first place I call when my mare injures herself. I always have my two young children with me and he goes above and beyond to keep them out of harms way and manage the horses. I recommend him and his team to everyone I know."
    Lisa G.
  • "We have been using Vick for over 10 years and use him a lot. We are a breeding barn so he’s here a lot doing repo work and we will recommend him to everyone who asks for a vet!"
