They always answer my questions and give great advice.Missy A.Missy A. ★★★★★ Care Animal Hospital really does care! They were able to get my lab in the same day and treated him for a severe allergic reaction to a bee sting. Dr. Avila and staff were very assertive and knowledgeable in treating him.

The staff have always been so kind and prompt. Love it here!Rateira D.Rateira D. ★★★★★ Dr. Hobson is exceptional. Very educated, personable, and thorough and explains things any dummy can understand. A little on the expensive side in my opinion in comparison to other vets in the city but not unreasonable and i think you get what you pay for and if you truly love your pet it is well worth the expense. Has made our dogs end of life struggles much more comfortable while other vets in the area were much more dismissive. Staff is just as competent and helpful in their duties and Muncie residents are fortunate to have such an establishment for pet lovers.D LD L ★★★★★ I had a great experience with Care animal hospital.

Their awesomeJerry C.Jerry C. ★★★★★ I would like to give a shout-out to the amazing staff at Care Animal Hospital for taking such great care of our three dogs. We recently had to board our dogs for almost a week while we were out of town, and we were so impressed with the level of care they received.The staff was so friendly and welcoming, and they took the time to get to know our dogs and their individual needs.We were so relieved to pick up Tito, Frejya and Rocky and see how happy and healthy they were. They were all clean, well-fed, and well-rested. We could tell that they had been well-cared for, and we would definitely recommend Animal Care Hospital to anyone who needs to board their dogs.Rudy T.Rudy T. ★★★★★ Great Vets, very caringMark R.Mark R. ★★★★★ Our dog, Bailey, always comes home happy when we kennel her and when we take her for grooming. She’s a nervous pup, so that’s means so much. Thankful for you!Molly B.Molly B. ★★★★★ My dog was ill on a Saturday night of a holiday weekend and I was able to book an appointment online for Sunday. Got in and out quickly and my dog was treated for her illness. It was the only place nearby that I could find open on Sunday. It was a good experience and the cost was reasonable.Kathy G.Kathy G. ★★★★★ Great, kind vet/staff. They even followed up a few days later.Debra H.Debra H. ★★★★★ My boyfriend and I took our Athena here to get cremated. They were so sympathetic and patient. Due to that experience, we decided to take our Browning here to get her hematoma looked at. Dr. Hobson was so informative and helpful. From the front desk to the exam room, we knew we made the right choice. I’ll recommend Care to anyone.Thank you, Dr. Hobson, techs, and front desk for all y’all do. May everyone that’s ever rude to y’all get wet socks every day lol.Mary D.Mary D. ★★★★★ These two fur babies get the best care! High five from Bentley n Reecie!Jill S.Jill S. ★★★★★ Great help with an emergency. Different possible methods of treatment suggested, and the vet and tech listened.Linda A.Linda A. ★★★★★ I would like to thank everyone at Care Animal Hospital for their heart felt support when I had to make the decision to put my fur baby to sleep 😪 everyone especially the Doctor. Mountain Dew is now resting and not in anymore pain. The cremation was all handled by the staff. I can't say thank you enough.Wayne G.Wayne G. ★★★★★ We love Care Animal Hospital. Dr. Hobson is great with our cat - so friendly, gentle and has a great personality. The prices are affordable and best in the area. Online appointment scheduling makes it easy, and same day appointments are usually available.Jamie W.Jamie W. ★★★★★ Brought my 14 year old Goldendoodle in pretty much knowing how it was going to end. First of all Dr. Avila was a total professional and understanding to the stress that my daughter-in-law and I were going through. Her assistants were also very good with what we were going through emotionally with the final moments of Murphy’s life. One big negative but not one to change my 5 star, was the insistence of paying for X-rays and blood work ahead of the procedure in the tune of $540. I’ve been a customer for over 25 years in total good standing (they have my credit card on file) and I was pretty much taken back with the emotion in the room. After his passing and cremation plan, before I left I was informed by the assistant my card was going to be charged over $800. The bed side manner on this issue bothers me but other than this it was professionally done.Stan G.Stan G. ★★★★★ Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful experience. Staff was great. Charlie and I say " thanks".Linda B.Linda B. ★★★★★ Especially courteous and friendly staff. My dog was thoroughly checked for the reasons we brought her there. Very happy with our experienceSamuel 304 G.Samuel 304 G. ★★★★★ Great place to take your pets. The veterinarians and their technicians are very comforting and patient with our dogs and cat. When examining our pets, they tell you everything going on and what it means, describing it in ways you can understand. They are very transparent on the cost of each test and/or treatment, and not pushy on up selling treatments. Pricing is fair for the services provided. I liked that I could have test results emailed to me, which took less than a week to receive. Another time when the folks at CAH went above and beyond was the passing of one of our first dogs at CAH. After they passed, the options were: for our dog to stay, we could take them then, or pick them up after cremation. We chose the latter, they handled the entire situation like family.Thank you. We appreciate what you do.John C.John C. ★★★★★ I appreciate Care Animal Hospital having emergency care. We have used it several times now. It is especially nice since it is close to home.Valerie H.Valerie H. ★★★★★ Great placeCarolann T.Carolann T. ★★★★★ We have been very happy with the care that Dr Hobson and Dr Avila have always provided for our dogs. Everyone at Care Animal Hospital is very kind and professional. We have trusted them with the care of our pets for about fifteen years. We will never forget their patience, kindness and sympathy especially when our dogs had to be put down. This clinic is the best in Muncie!Marie C.Marie C. ★★★★★ We lost our fur baby in the middle of the night on a Saturday going into a Sunday morning. Our vet was closed and when I called the emergency line, the nearest place I could go to have our dog cremated was an hour away. I called Care Animal Hospital, and even though we were not patients, they told me to bring him in and they would take care of him from there. They were super compassionate, the soft voice on the other end of the phone was comforting while letting us know what our options were. When we got there, we had our last good bye as a gentleman came out to carry him in and gave condolences. We received a heartfelt card and his 🐾 print a week later. In the future, we will be changing our vet and our family will be taking our fur babies to Care Animal Hospital.Kerry J.Kerry J. ★★★★★ Care Animal Hospital has been the place for me to have my dogs groomed over the years. Jamie is so good with Jasper; she is gentle and kind. I am so glad to have found her at CAHThank you.Loretta P.Loretta P. ★★★★★ Very caring staff. They are always caring and can answer any question I have about my puppy. I've been bring my dogs here for 30 years. Love the care they get.Linda D.Linda D. ★★★★★ We had a barnyard battle between 2 Great Pyrenees, resulting in injury. They got us right in. Took care of our big boy, and sent us on our way.Very helpful and caring folks. 👍Rodney P.Rodney P. ★★★★★ Very helpful and caringJuanette L.Juanette L. ★★★★★ My GSD puppy just had major surgery (FHO). The staff put me at ease and took great care of him. Every staff member is very caring and good at their jobs. They answer the phone and/or return calls quickly. Easy appointment scheduling. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!Tina R.Tina R. ★★★★★ Care Animal Hospital is a little higher priced than a traditional veterinary office. But, when it comes to the treatment and care our fur babies receive, they are absolutely the best!Sarah F.Sarah F. ★★★★★ Amazing staffKellie D.Kellie D. ★★★★★ Friendly and helpful and not to expensive compared to other placesD.J. Galyean I.D.J. Galyean I. ★★★★★ They are wonderful as always.

We have boarded her a few times also, great price and we know she's well loved and cared for!Amanda J.Amanda J. ★★★★★ They are very caring and accomodating during my pet's illness and ultimate passing.Penny J.Penny J. ★★★★★ I have had multiple interactions with Care Animal Hospital, and I have always been impressed with their dedication to serving the animals/families in the community. Their staff have always treated my fur babies with compassion, and I feel confident in their expertise.Tiffany M.Tiffany M. ★★★★★ Tango did very well at the vet today. We moved from Ohio and this place is great. Felt like Tango was part of the family here. They got Tango in quick and easy. They explained everything and listen to my concerns and educated me on the meds and understood my concerns. I wasn't rushed and not badly priced considering everything they did for Tango. If your a fur mom like me this is the place for your fur babies. See you in six months.theresa P.theresa P. ★★★★★ Did a great job and had compassion for my sick animal. A little spendy thoughR ER E ★★★★★ There aren't enough stars in this galaxy to express how much I love and appreciate CARE Animal Hospital. They saved my baby Waylon last fall. We had to amputate his hind leg. It was the most devastating thing I've ever been through, aside of losing loved ones. CARE and their staff were so caring, empathetic, and quick in how they treated my baby. He was suffering so badly; it crushed my soul. The staff didn't just mend my fur baby and provide him with what turned out to be an even better quality of life because he's so much more spoiled now, but they helped mend my heart in the process. My entire world crashed that day. I didn't have the money. They surgeries and services they performed were going to cost 3x or more at other vets local and out of state. We called everyone. Thank God I had a friend who was able to loan me the money, but if it wasn't for their good hearted prices, I would have had to say good bye to my very best friend that day. I truly learned why they are called CARE. It's the truth. Every single one of them care. Even on their toughest days. I'll never go anywhere else. Ever. I would drive 1,000 miles to get to them. It has taken me almost a year to even be able to speak of this, or I would have left a review sooner. My fur babies love the staff and get excited to see Dr. Maci. Yeah. Waylon gets excited to see the staff who had to take his leg. THAT, Google friends, speaks volumes. He knows they are all good to the core of their souls. They're Earth angels or something. You will not regret switching vets! You won't! Plus, wouldn't you rather pay people who care who take as little money as possible because they're not in it for profit? Yes, please! Thank you @CARE Animal Hospital. You know me well. I love and appreciate you all so very much. Thank you!Elise P.Elise P. ★★★★★ This place was quick and professional. Friendly service and staff. Answered all questions with efficient answers. My cat had a neck injury and they fixed it right up and gave her antibiotics. I love it.Bobby Ray T.Bobby Ray T. ★★★★★ I called they got me right in and they was very nice people and they was on top of everything I ask and was goodadrianna S.adrianna S. ★★★★★ The people we interacted with were very helpful and knowledgeable. Even though they were extremely busy they didn’t make us feel rushed or unwanted.Quint W.Quint W. ★★★★☆ The vets and staff are kind and friendly. However, they like you to pay before they see your pet 😏. That is a bad experience. Especially if you have a pet who is critically ill that you have to put down.Lori Ann D.Lori Ann D. ★★★★☆ Good vet but priceyjennifer H.jennifer H. ★★★★☆ I have been taking my animals here for years. Friendly staff and the doctor was too. The exam room could have used a good cleaning (the only reason I didn't give 5 stars). Thanks for taking great care of Alf!KrisKris ★★★★☆ Care Animal Hospital has the best veterinarians and techs! Dr. Hobson is wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable and great with my dog! Techs are very friendly as well! My dog loves Jamie the groomer, she does a great job with my little buddy! I highly recommend Care Animal Hospital!Robin D.Robin D. ★★★★☆ Very good, took care of my family dog very well! I just wish they would've done more about it instead of giving her medicine and calling it done.Strxwberry23Strxwberry23 ★★★★☆ Nice people but very pricey.Justice A.Justice A.js_loader
