You and everyone at your clinic have a beautiful attitude toward taking care of animals, and we just can't imagine a better vet for our cherished family members. - Jerry and Marilynn

I have never had a vet that is so wonderful. You care for my animals as if they were your own. Thanks, SDMVC! - Angellita

I have been taking my pets to SDMVC since I first got them in 2003. I would never take them anywhere else. I trust SDMVC 100% with my pet family! - Julie

The wonderful doctors and staff understand that your pets are family and treat them as part of their family. ‘We Love Them Too’ is a perfect way to describe them. - Lacee

When my dog had to be brought in because it was ‘his time’, the staff was very good to me in handling this tough decision. Later, I got a card signed by all the staff and a notice from the ARL that a donation was made in memory of Max. - Gary

They are amazing and listen to everything you have to say. They care about your fur kid just as much as you do! I have and will continue to recommend this amazing vet! - Kristen

We found the South Des Moines Veterinary Center when we got our puppy. We take him in for Day Care and for regular vet visits. He is always so excited to see everyone there. They are THE BEST!! - Joanna
