My little Yorkie, Toby, was diagnosed with Kidney Failure at a vet in Minot. He needed IV fluids every 10 days and Minot is well over an hour drive for me. The Rugby vet was able to get Toby in while my local vet was not. My dog was given around 4 months to live and thanks to the Rugby vet, he made it 9 months! We are so grateful and everyone was so friendly. When Toby passed, we received a very nice card from the Rugby vet clinic, their staff truly cares! Thank you so much!
