  • Been going here for a couple of years with our two dogs. Fantastic care. Wonderful staff very attentive to our needs and overall great place for our Dogs care. While there are many closer vets we take the extra drive for their premium care.

  • We take our 2 Frenchies here. Usually, we work with Dr. Gilbertson and with Dr Stover. Great service and reasonable fees. 😁🌞

    - Paul P.
  • Absolutely fantastic experience with all staff, every time. Complete and thorough canine exam was conducted in a manner that suited my very skittish and shy new dog. After a few months we came back and the dog was excited and friendly toward everyone. Positive experience in every way. Highly recommended.

  • Fantastic! Not only were the techs outstanding, Dr Katie Stover was very knowledgeable and patient. Thank you for all your help.  

    - Dennis M.
  • I can't thank them enough for their compassion and understanding how difficult to pass our 10 year old cat over the rainbow bridge. The staff was thoughtful and caring understanding and so very patient. I cannot recommend them enough for pet care.  

    - Arthur T.
  • We have struggled to find a good vet for our dog for years. From the moment we dropped our dog off, you could tell the techs really cared about their job. They took the time to comfort my dog as he was apprehensive at first. Very professional and Dr. Stone was very knowledgeable. She was honest and did not recommend things my dog didn’t necessarily need. Highly recommended.

  • Dr. Stover and her staff are amazing. She took time, sat down (on the floor) with my dog, and talked through options. If that wasn’t enough, she herself called me to follow up on my dog’s status. I am so glad I did some research and made the change to this veterinarian.

    - Andrea G.
  • This office is awesome! We were visiting out of town and our dog had a horrible rash on her belly. They got us in right away and got our sweet pup the medicine she needed to feel better. They even followed up with us to make sure she was better. Very caring for the animals and appreciated their follow through!

  • Outstanding. I had a situation with my elderly cat and my Vet could not see me for two weeks. I had the best experience with Dr. Jones and the entire staff. It really says something to me when a Vet goes out of their way to help you like this. I could not be more pleased and grateful. 

    - Cynthia S.
  • Always kind to my pets and always explains problems and solutions. I will always bring all my pets here! Love Hampshire animal hospital!
