By Joanne Holmberg | October 15, 2008

Over 1000 horse and pet owners attend

ChaparralCAVE CREEK – Some families had to make a second attempt to get in the parking lot on Saturday, September 20 at Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center for the Grand Opening celebration of the new state-of-the-art facility at 32100 North Cave Creek Road. But a great time was had by all while enjoying refreshments, pony rides, a petting zoo and the booth where each of the veterinarians took their turn getting “dunked” by clients.
