I recently had an emergency with my FurBaby Naomi. She had gotten ahold of my vape pen and was acting bizarre. I called and the excellent team at Brewer's calmed me down and said to bring her right in. They treated her (and I) with tenderness and professionalism. They assured me this happens a lot and did not judge me. I initially chose them because of the close proximity to my house. But after experiencing their service, I go knowing Naomi is receiving the best care. Can't say enough good things. I would recommend to anyone.

I first met Joe Brewer as a volunteer for Animal Protective League back in the Stone Age when a shelter was still a dream. He came in on a weekend to care for my first (horrible!) rescue. They've made some great saves and comforted some of my greatest losses. Dr Kirk and I have "matured" together, and I just met the new vet, Dr Rucker who seems wonderful, too. They also have a great vet tech!! I've used several vets in the area, and Brewer's is one of the very best, combining compassion with expertise and a genuine love for animals. Excellent choice!

I have to say thank you to everybody that help us and my wonderful dog out for the past several years. We had to put our beagle of 15 years down. A very sad moment in my life, but everyone there was nice and comforted us. I'm sure we will have a puppy soon and we will see you guys again.

We’ve been really happy with all the doctors and techs at Brewer Animal Hospital for the past 5 years for our two dogs. They’re helpful, patient, friendly, and answer all our questions. They are frank about giving you risks and benefits of different treatment options. Care is affordable, they work quickly, and they’re great about reminding me to make an appointment when our dogs need a vaccine or new meds. Their office is clean and all the employees are helpful and professional.

I have been going to Brewer Animal Hospital for over 26 years. First with my pug and now with my shorkie. They have always been reliable and knew what was going on with my boys. Even as the vet staff has retired and new vets came on board, the quality has neve been lost. They take time and care with them. Always coming up with alternatives for good health and longevity.

We have always used and loved Brewer for our pets, because we’ve always had exotics (hamsters and sugar gliders) and Dr. Ward has always been wonderful with them! We recently got our first dog, and she’s very timid. We saw Dr. Rucker and she was wonderful with our shy Tippi girl. She went at Tippi’s pace, sat down on the floor with her, and made her feel comfortable by offering treats before examining her at all. I can’t recommend them enough… I’ve never seen them do anything other than go way above and beyond for our fur babies!!! ????

I have used Brewer as long as I can remember. At least owning 8 dogs and 1 cat. have travelled extensively w my service dog, I have NEVER had better veterinary care anywhere in the US or UK. When my dog Rusty got cancer and I needed to say the final goodbye, Dr. Ward went above and beyond. She came out to my car and gave him a shot to make him sleepy first. Waited so he would not have anxiety about his legs messed w. He HATED NAIL TRIMS. This made the admin of the meds easier on him. She hugged me when I cried and told me she loved him too. He was one of those special dogs that only comes around once in a life time. She reassured me I did the right thing for him. All the vets there and staff are awesome! I thank God for them.

I highly recommend Dr. Ward. She takes the time to answer any questions I have especially as one of my dogs is getting older. She is also very gentle and kind when looking our dogs over.

BrewerAnimal hospital is the best Veterinary animal care imaginable. They are caring, professional, and get to the cause of all problems your animal may have. The wait time is zero! They schedule your pet for the slotted time. I have been places where you are scheduled 5 at a time and sit for hours. Brewer Animal Hospital is like no other Veterinary place I have experienced, top notch. Dr. Kirk is my pets Vet. He keeps my 14 and 15 year old Shihtzu’s in their best shape. He cares about them as if they are his own. He doesn’t guess at problems. He will send blood samples away to be examined. When he isn’t in, I trust all the Vets there. A special thanks to Melissa his front receptionist who always is attentive. All the staff are well trained and polite. Keep up the great work!!

My dog was deathly ill, and the staff was patient and empathetic during the ordeal. On typical visits they are great too.

We've taken our dogs here for about 15 years and have always been pleased with the kind and professional staff. Whether getting a routine checkup and shots, an office visit for an illness, boarding, or (sadly) euthanasia, the vets, techs, and office people are always caring and compassionate. Their fees are reasonable, and we've never had to wait long to see someone with whom we've had an appointment. There are lots of choices for good vet care in Springfield. Brewer Animal Hospital is one of the best.

Words can not begin to describe how wonderful the whole staff at Brewers is. We started going here when we adopted our greyhounds and even years latter we wouldn't think of going elsewhere. Dr Ward is so wonderful. She was so kind when we had to make the ultimate decision for the girls, she made two of the worst days in our lives bearable. And I can't say enough about how well they treat my terror of a cat. They know exactly what to do so his visits are as painless as possible. To both him AND the staff. XD If you are looking for a good vet that will treat your pet as their own, Brewers is the place to be.

Couldn't be happier with this place! We were recommended here by friends of ours that have 3 dogs, we currently have 2. We have been to see the Vets here about 4 different times for our dogs, and each time has been pleasant. The staff is …
