Congratulations to The Village Vets Five Star Veterinarians!
Drs. Françoise Tyler, Will Draper & Stacy Stacy have been recognized as three of Atlantas 2010 FIVE STAR Veterinarians in the 2010 Pet issue of Atlanta Magazine.

The FIVE STAR Veterinary Program is a survey that was administered to 30,000 pet owners and all licensed veterinarians in the Atlanta area. Respondents evaluated veterinarians on their personal knowledge, experience and service, along with the clinic they represent. Only 7% of the veterinarians in Atlanta received this honor and we feel privileged that of this distinguished group of veterinarians, three are from The Village Vets. Visit to learn more.
