I probably covered most everything in the question above so I will add a few thoughts...there was never a time that I found the vet's care was anything but through and caring...as most animals are somewhat nervous at a vet's appointment, there was never a time that Frankie was scared of the staff or fought the examinations they performed...they were kind and caring during his illness before his de...

Let me say first, that the veternarian was very nice and helpful, my complaint is not about the vet services here. It is the grooming, and the unexpected cost of all the required shots. The shots they require are more extensive than any other grooming service that I have experienced, but despite it being a huge cost/surprise, it was stated to me before the appointment, so ultimatly, it was my choi...

From the first visit they made me and my pet feel comfortable and like they had our best interests at heart. We had two examination visits to see when his staples could be removed and then on the third visit they removed them. This is my new vet!!!! They saved my sanity and the day!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I made 3 visits due to my unhappiness with my former vet. The staff here are focused on the animal and the pet owner and not just on money as seems to be the case with so many these days.

As a former Veterinary Technician, I am VERY particular about the Vets my animals see. I have worked in good, friendly quality clinics, as well as clinics I would not take my own pets to, so I am very picky. I require the best, from good bedside manner, friendly, animal lovers (while that seems obvious for the profession, you'd be surprised), attentive, and professional. The minute I walked in and...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My husband and I had just moved to town and our very large mastiff had a large tumor on one of her toes that was obviously painful and needed to be removed. I saw the vet's office one day when I drove past and their website www.welovethemtoo.com was big enough to be visible from the street, so I immediately went home and looked them up. I liked the website and what I saw, so I made an appointment to get my dog in and taken care of. They were so very friendly and nice that first visit, I knew I had made the right choice. They did a thorough exam of my dog, did a needle biopsy, and gave my a price quote for the surgery. They were very gentle and answered all questions and concerns I have had. I have been back numerous times since, but only because my big dog is a huge accident waiting to happen, not because of lack of quality care on their part. I love them and I am so happy to find a good vet in Des Moines.
