A couple years ago, my long time vet retired and I was trying to find the best vet in town to replace him. I spoke with everyone I knew in the dog world and the resounding response was - Go see Dr. Burger! I did and he has been absolutely terrific so far. He is good with the dogs, good with the people, his prices are fair and he explains all your options. I haven't had surgery on any of my pets, but some of my friends have and they said that he is a phenomenal surgeon. The only down part to going there is that he is such a great vet, everyone goes to him and the waiting room is always full when I go there.
