I have been a client at BAC since moving to Brandon in Fall 2009 from Regina. In looking for the right clinic to meet my needs and those of my dogs, I phoned around to different clinics in Brandon.  Mindy, the office manager was the one who answered my call and spent a lot of time talking to me and answering my questions.  I have a special needs dog that needs lots of conventional and unconventional care.  She was wonderful and patient and booked me in to see Dr. Barclay.  I brought in my dogs and was very impressed with Dr. B and the time she took with me in trying to get a good sense of the whole picture.  She is smart, honest, welcoming and most of all she thinks outside the box!  She doesn’t give up on the tough cases, she finds it a challenge.  We have had to go to Saskatoon for emergency treatment with two of our dogs and she called ahead, made the necessary arrangements and was on top of the situation, and provided excellent follow up care.  She literally saved both of my dogs lives.  She genuinely cares about the well being of your pet and of your well being too.  Her clinic is very progressive and offers acupuncture and holistic care which I have used many times for my dog with Dr. Radcliffe, who is very comforting. The front staff and vet techs all know my pets by name and are always eager to help me in any way they can.  I am there a lot due to chronic health issues of my 11 year old Cocker spaniel.  Most clinics would have thrown in the towel, but not BAC..  They are on your side and are willing to go that extra mile.  I would not hesitate to recommend BAC to all of my friends, family and acquaintances.  I trust that the care I receive is top notch and reasonable, they see you as a pet lover and not as a dollar sign.  Thanks Dr. Barclay and your amazing staff for all of the wonderful care you have given us and our furry children.  You are the best!
