★★★★★ All 4 of my girls have been in to see everyone at Roscommon Vet. They have taken EXCELLENT CARE of them all. Even had to take my boyfriends dog in cause she decided to try and be friends with a porcupine. They did GREAT, taking them all out. Recently, I had to put 2 of my girls down, and they were both happy to see their friends up there. They all do a FANTASTIC job and made it comfortable for us both. Thank you all for caring for them both since puppies, the card, and their paw prints. They both will always be loved and missed ! I recommend you to all my family and friends.Well, it's September 6th, 2022, and I had to put another one of my girls to rest. The staff here are hands down the BEST. All my 4 girls have been going here since I had them. Bess had bad hips, but she held on until she could not bear a lot of weight on them. I started noticing she was dragging her back legs. The Vets here took Great care of her throughout her life. Thank you all So Much.!! She will always be loved and missed !! And they are always in my heart. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU AT ROSCOMMON VET!!!!Update...February 28th,2023I just want to start off by THANKING EVERYONE of you at Roscommon Vet. I had to put down my last fur girl, my BABY GIRL BELLA. She was 13 years old, survived breast cancer, and had diabetes. She ended up blind and breast cancer ended up coming back and took her. You will forever be missed and LOVED my girl. Roscommon Vet has taken GREAT CARE OF ALL 4 OF MY GIRLS !! Thank you all for caring for them like they were your own. If I ever get another one, you bet I will be taking them there.UPDATE. Well, here is Autumn. I got her in September of 2023. She is my girl (I miss my other girls badly). She had an infection between her paws due to an ingrown hair that bothered her. Then, shortly after that went away, she got bit by something, and her snout was all swollen. Again, the staff here was AWESOME. They took great care of her. It's the only place I take, my girls. Thank you, Roscommon Vet !!! I appreciate EVERYTHING you have done for all my fur babies.Susan W.Susan W. ★★★★★ The office girls are so helpful and friendly.

Love that place!!!Dee R.Dee R. ★★★★★ Took in my 2 dogs for check up, blood work, and Simparica Trio. All staff were very pleasant and really put my fur babies first.
