This place is excellent. My dog got the most thorough examination with the best explanation I've ever experienced. The vet's problem solving technique, which was to start with the least invasive solutions and move to more invasive solutions if the initial attempts didn't work, is the right way to approach any problem. I've had vets in the past who jumped straight to outrageous conclusions and were completely wrong in the end. Barataria Animal Hospital is the cream of the crop. I highly recommend it to anyone!
