Dr McDonald is not only an awesome vet but an awesome person as well! I had the pleasure of working for him during the time he owned Shoemaker Ave Animal Hospital. I found him to be excellent at both surgery and diagnostics. He is kind and compassionate. He genuinely cares about his patients. He believes that veterinary care should be affordable so we can all take good care of our pets who are so much a part of our families! 

-Anne Marie Stevens

He is very compassionate, caring, and quick to respond to any issues or concerns his patients and their families have. You can tell he truly cares about animals. His pricing is excellent, and it's easy to schedule appointments. I can not say enough good things about him.
