Here at Sherry's Cockapoos we work closely with our vet to insure that all puppies are in excellent health to the best of our knowledge.
In Loving Memory
Our vet and friend
We miss you "Doc"
Charles McWhorter was a fine vet he was always there when I need him. Any time I needed him, it didn't matter if it was after hours, night, Saturday or Sundays all I had to do was call him. He was just a phone call away. We do miss him. I use "Doc" even before I was a breeder along time vet and friend. "Doc" had such a pretty smile.
On July 1, 2013 we went to meet another vet that we will be using. It will take them some time to get to know us. Below is our new vet information. Pictures of our new vet an staff.
