"If you need the BEST in veterinary care for your animal friends, you will not find a better place. Dr. Gerds and the entire staff are among the most caring people you will ever meet. Dr. Gerds has set a price schedule that is the best I have ever seen, and makes everything you could need to care for your animals not only accessible, but completely affordable - and I mean that sincerely!"

Michelle L.

"The staff at Advanced Care Pet Hospital were absolutely wonderful! They made Gracie and myself feel so at ease and they explained to me the best way to have her treated vs. surgery. I can honestly say I have never gone to a vet where they are so honest with you. I will be back and I highly recommend them!"

"This is a very caring place. The atmosphere is calm, and the doctor very knowledgeable. She will go above and beyond what would be considered very professional in treating your pet and thinking of new ways to help if the first treatment doesn't work. I adopted a rescue dog with a very difficult to treat ear infection, and Dr. Gerds' persistence and research helped us find a solution!"
