A couple years ago I was adoptiong a cat for a friend from a Freeburg vet clinic, while there I saw the cat's daughter and I adopted her for myself. Nikita my cat was very small so we naturally assumed she was a kitten, on her first veterian exam at Adair Gardens they did not let me know she was not a small kitten as we had assumed but a two year old kitty. Nikita received her normals shots and over the next month did not seem to thrive or gain weight.
After being concerned I took NIkita back three more times over a months time each time being assured she was developing fine. Finally after analyzing her stool (I know grose right! ) I found she had worms and this could be the cause for her losing weight and thriving. So on two occasions I took samples of this worms into the vets offce and was assured she was being treated for these worms. She still continued to lose weight.
Finally I took her to another local vet Hoof n Paw and was informed they were NOT even treating her for the RIGHT worms! Needless to say I had scheduled her to get fixed and while they were in there they spent 45 -minutes removing a large amount of worms from her intestines and stomach. They also treated her with shots.
Within 30-days Nikita had gained 3pds and continued to thrive and grow and gain weight. Hoof and Paw had told me if I waited much longer we of lost her because she was just wasting away! I was very very upset with their care, especially when I brough them the worms as evidence.
Buyer beware of Adair Gardens

This a great small town store. We have used Lloyds in many of our appliance purchases over the years. They have a wonderful warranty and are aweosome about getting repairs done quickly.
We purchased our first house seven years and purchased all our kitchen appliances from them. Within six months we had to replace our dishwasher they came right out with no hassle and replaced our dishwasher with a brand new one.
A few years later we had to move into a another new home and had to purchase a few more appliances they really worked with us on what we needed and kept us in our budget. Would highly recommend giving Lloyd's a try.
