“Her commitment to quality patient care is exceptional. She is an excellent communicator and our clients have been very happy.”

“Dr. Longo has been working with us since February of 2020. As the managing veterinarian of two practices, the thing I appreciate most about Dr. Longo is that she truly cares about the way our practice runs as a whole. She goes over and above to help train staff and and positively contribute to the day-to-day procedures. In this year of dealing with so many necessary changes due to COVID concerns, Dr. Longo has been a wonderful asset to our practice and has done much to contribute to new protocols and safety measures. I am grateful to work with her and would recommend her services without reservation.”

Dr. Longo’s heart and mind are always focused on what needs to be done to ensure the animals who are entrusted to her care have the best outcome possible. She is a mentor to our staff and goes above and beyond the call of duty to teach in a patient and professional manner.

What do clients say?

“Dr. Longo rocks! I have known her for many years. She is a super vet who is extremely caring and compassionate. I got to know her while working cat TNR for the SPCA. She has also been one of my vets for the many senior Boston Terriers I have fostered.”

Katherine Wilson


“Dr. Longo isn’t just a vet… She is a loving, caring family member that is loved by all of us. Ellie May (my dog) and Dr. Longo’s relationship was the greatest. All I had to say to her is ‘Want to go see Dr. Longo?’ and she would go straight to the car and jump in! Dr. Longo’s love and caring relationship meant the world to Ellie and me.”

Peggy Seymour
