What a wonderful place to take your pets... The staff is always so helpful and right there to help in anyway they can. Dr Sutton was so helpful at our last visit and Truly is one of the best Vet's I've experienced in a long time. Many veterinarian clinics can provide adequate service but service provided at Central Animal Hospital is just exceptional in everything they do! - Melanie Henson & Milo and Heartly

Central Animal Hospital has been my vet for over 13 years. They have helped me to care for my former dog, Bailey over nearly 13 years, taking him through a surgery and rehab after he experienced a crippling injury due to being in the car with me during an accident. They helped me to gently lay him to rest when it was his time. Now I have a new dog, Danny, and he came from the rescue service already heartworm positive. From the start, I could see that the staff was as happy as I was that I had found a new friend and they have steered us through heartworm treatment with a great deal of kindness and compassion. - Barb Leonard

Our dogs have always been treated like family. Dr. Brown has performed a number of surgeries as well as being involved with our “kids’” physical therapy, and we have always been impressed with the treatment we’ve received. Thank you for everything you do.” - Steve and Christine Holtje

I have recently moved into the area and needed a visit for Sophie on short notice. They were very quick to get us in and even had her name on the "Welcome Board". Dr. Sutton was wonderful, gentle and kind. We were very happy with our experience and highly recommend this practice. – Randall Hedrick
