1st I travel to Nh from Virginia because Dr. Parnell is the best. My dog is handicapped. There are times I feel like keeping him around is cruel. But her health plan has changed him. I have a Sheppard that is 15 years old. He appears to have 2 or more years. The fact he is 15 & has all his teeth is a testament to the care she gives him & teaches us what we are needed. The whole staff is wonderful.
