China Today Diplomatic Directory

Doctors Beck & Stone Pet Health Care Center
Need veterinary services or supplies, or advice about a pet? This place will, I promise you, exceed your wildest dreams! This center is not only extraordinary for China, it seems to offer more than most veterinary centers back home. With two locations in Beijing, they have two- count 'em- two honest-to-goodness Western-trained-and-licensed expert foreign veterinarians. They have more-than-full-service clinics, and a hospital capable of providing the most advanced diagnostic and treatment services available anywhere in the world- even ambulance transport. Of course, they can sell you just about anything you need to keep your pet happy and healthy. But best of all, they have patiently and repeatedly shown a skeptical Saloon that they genuinely care about animals and the people who own them, regardless of location or expenditure...and personally, I can't imagine a better recommendation than that. Highly recommended
