Ever since human kind has made its first appearance on the face of the earth, his survival depended upon animals. At first they were good for eating, shelter and clothing only, but to this day humans depend upon animals for food like eggs and milk, products such as wool and hides and even companionship. Animals are used for transport and to perform many other tasks. Without an attending veterinarian Surprise AZ animals will not be able to survive.
