I cant be happier with the service they have provided for both my doggies. I had to let go of my oldest and the staff was so understanding,compassionate and loving. You can tell all of the staff really loves their animals and took care of mine as If they were theirs. THEY ARE AWESOME.

We have been going to Dr.Dahl for years and she has taken wonderful care of our cats. We recently brought in our Angel due to failing health. Unfortunately our dear sweet Angel's kidneys had shut down and there was no hope of recovery. Dr. Dahl was most compassionate towards my wife and me during our moment of great sadness for which we will always be grateful.

Just came back from my first visit with the vet, Dr. Dahl. She was checking out my cat. She is a senior citizen (cat). Gave her a thorough check up, ran some blood and urine test. She talked to me about her kidneys and what I needed to do. She explained things very well. I feel very confident that my cat is in good hands. I know she will be my cat's vet from now on.

I have gone to Dr Dahl for over 15 years. But when my boxer started limping I called to schedule an appt. They were to busy to fit us in until a week later.. So I asked if they can give us pain meds for just 2 days worth because I had enough for the remainder just to make him comfortable until their first available appt. And I was told no. I am very disappointed in their loyalty to their long term customers and I will not be returning.

I took my dog there because her left ear swelled up. It is first come first served.. Their prices are very reasonable. If you go there take water snacks for you and your pet. Plan on spending all day there. Due to covid19 you have to wait in your car with your pet till called. I was please with their treatment and their results from the surgery. I will be taking my dog back in two weeks for the follow up. On my return I will remember to bring water snacks and my patience . Water and snacks for your pet too.

Dr.Dahl is warm, compassionate and very knowledgeable. Truly loves her patients and is honest and informative to their human caretakers. Staff is welcoming and take the time to get your questions answered. Other Dr gets back with a phone call and is knowledgeable and kind.

Ok, Staff at the clinic side were very nice, reasonable price but you have to wait a long time. I went at 8am and was 20+ people ahead of me to get checked in, my dog got his shots at 1pm. If you have the time, it is worth it. Drive up clinic is more affordable and will do that next time.

When our previous vet failed to actually adequately do his job for our epileptic dog, we turned to this one. The difference was night and day. Wonderful service, wonderful attitude, and wonderful advice. Thank you so much for being wonderful at your jobs.

Been coming here for years even back when Dr. Minnick was in practice. Dr Dahl is very thorough with our pets and has done an excellent job with our diabetic dog and appreciate all she and the staff have done for her. Have always been comfortable bringing our pets here until recently. Started 2 years ago when we had to put down our cat Smokey unexpectedly. We didn’t have the money on us for euthanasia & cremation. They told us they would hold his body until we paid. Very next morning husband came in and paid. They said they will call us when they received his ashes. 2 weeks later I finally called them to ask why haven’t they called me yet?? Was put on hold for awhile then they came back saying “Umm Smokey is still here.” I was livid, hysterical, devastated knowing my baby has been in a freezer all that time!! Someone failed to release his body after payment. They did put a rush on it and got him to us the very next day but I haven’t forgotten the pain we were put through. Fast forward to today. Husband lost his job and our diabetic dog has become a big expense with insulin, blood work, syringes and a 2 day hospital stay for pancreatitis for $1300. They require her to come in for blood work every 6 months. Would not refill her insulin until we brought her in. We explained our situation and we could not afford it. She was doing fine on her dosage and not drinking too much water but they still insisted she must have this test or would not refill. Felt forced to do so and had to come up with the money so we can keep her alive. So now today after all these years of buying her syringes through pet meds they call and won’t approve their request to refill online that they will write a script instead. This will now delay her insulin shots as we only have enough syringes for a week or less. They can’t seem to work with us here and it seems all about the money lately. I truly wasn’t going to come back after what we went through with Smokey but we do like Dr Dahl. She really is an amazing doctor but unfortunately I don’t think we can afford her anymore.

Love this vet. So much individual one on one attention between the animals and doctors, and they take the time to explain everything so thoroughly. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

Dr. Dahl is truly the best. I had first brought my 16 year old fur baby after she fell ill. Dr. Dahl was recommended to us and at first we were a a little worried because it’s so hard to find a good vet, but was I wrong. She saved my cat. She is the most compassionate, caring vet I have ever had the pleasure of bringing my fur baby too. She explains everything to you, she doesn't rush you and I know that my fur baby is in the best care when at her office. Her and her team are thoughtful, considerate and always willing to go above and beyond. After every visit they always follow up to ensure that everything is ok. I am forever grateful to Dr. Dahl and her team. Dr. Dahl exudes her love for all animals and you can immediately see how caring she is. THANK YOU Dr. Dahl all fur babies are lucky to have you as their vet! Love love Dr.Dahl!
