What Our Clients Are Saying


Chris S.

Excellent place to take your pets. I've tried others, and Animal House is by far and away the best place for your pets. Both the Dr.'s and staff are very friendly and personable. The Doc's explain any issues and assist in every way they can. All while making the pets comfortable being there. This is literally the only vet my dog has been comfortable seeing.

Mark F.

These folks took really good care of me today. My family adopted a pair of reclusive cats from my elderly dad in a nursing home. Esmy, Shelly and Dr. Dayton gave them the full package: Exams, vaccines, nails and set me up with calming towels for a long road trip after. They were professional, caring, friendly and very patient. One of the cats did NOT want to be there but was handled very well nonetheless. Thanks to all at Animal House. Highly recommended.

J. P.

Cassandra T.

Do yourself and your pet a favor and go to this vet!!!! Dr. Hoekstra is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything! I took my kitty here after a horrible experience with another vet, and he found the issue right away and we are working to solve it. And you won’t break the bank doing it!
