Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Right on time for curb side drop off and super friendly staff. Dr. Nedder brought my dog right out to me after the visit to explain everything to me. Excellent first visit!!"
    Tammy S.
  • "Knowledgeable, professional and polite staff answer questions when you call. Dr. O’Connor is attentive, caring and honest in all interactions with you and she has a kind and gentle approach with animals."
    Cheryl H.
  • "I recently switched to this vet after moving. In such a short time, I had to bring my dog to the vet on three separate occasions because she is always getting into things, or is getting into trouble. Each time that I needed to have an appointment quickly, the vet was able to accommodate me and took wonderful care of my dog. It’s hard for me to drop my baby off anywhere, but I trust this vet. They have treated my baby very well. Thank you for your care and your accommodation!"
    Sara S.
  • "Everyone was helpful and professional. I appreciate Dr. Kirk coming out to the car with Marmalade after each visit. She answered all my questions and provided support in the best ways to care for a 19 year old pet."
    Sally R.
  • "This was Pippa's first visit with Dr. Cotthaus. Dealing with COVID and no clients inside, was easy for us, but probably not for Dr. Cotthaus. Everything was so professional and done well. The doctor came to our car multiple times to keep us up to date on everything. Not a small task with a mask on and on one of the hottest days of the summer. The staff was great and the process as easy as it could have been, given the conditions. Very happy clients."
    Lynn F.
