"When your pet is sick, what a lot of vets in Egypt usually do is just prescribe medication and send you on your way and you care for them at home. But Dr. Omar El Saftawy actually takes your pets in when they're ill, keeps them at the clinic for as long as necessary and cares for them really well until they're better. And sometimes he even takes in stray dogs and cares for them as well. He's really compassionate and you immediately trust your pet with him," says Ahmed Khaled, who has been sending his dog to him for two years.

"I'm a first time cat owner and I was a bit worried about what to do and how to care for them but this center was incredibly helpful. They walked me through all the steps - they also spoke perfect English which was really useful since I can't speak Arabic. The vet that we met with, Dr. Mohamed, was friendly and professional, and all the services at the clinic were very reasonably priced. They even give you these cute little 'cat passports' so that you can keep track of all their vaccinations," says Kelly Stiebel.
