★★★★★ After having a very bad experience at CAH in 02/24, I was never planning to go back there again. But I have been taking my dogs there for many years and had never had a problem before. So I decided to take my Papillon back for her annual shots and requested Dr Hobson. He was absolutely wonderful, very compassionate, knowledgeable and took plenty of time to answer all my questions. I will always request Dr Hobson in the future. Everyone in the office was very courteous and friendly. I am now once again a happy client of CAH. 😊👍🏻🐶🩷Cynthia G.Cynthia G. ★★★★★ I have been taking all 5 of my dogs to Care Animal Hospital for nearly two years now. We absolutely LOVE Dr.Burns and the staff here. They are so kind, helpful and just genuinely good people. We had to help one of our babies cross the rainbow bridge and they were so supportive and understanding during the process. I firmly believe you get what you pay for, and while it is not the cheapest medical care for animals, it is the best! Dr. Burns is very down to earth, kind and relatable. She takes time to explain everything and answer any and all questions I have. With 5 dogs we see the staff and veterinarians monthly, and we could not have found a better place for our fur babies! I cannot recommend CAH enough!Holly B.Holly B. ★★★★★ This place is awesome! Hands down the best veterinary I’ve ever been to or heard of. Scheduled or emergency it doesn’t matter. Trust me this place is the place to go. I would give them 10 stars if I could. They’ve just always taken great care of my animals.Aviator99Aviator99 ★★★★★ Losing a pet and emotionally handling the loss is hard enough, but when you have a vets office that can compassionately help you through that time makes a world of difference. During lockdown and even months after, I was grappling with declining health of my dog and had just moved to Muncie. Care Animal Hospital was recommended to me and I couldn’t be more grateful for the compassion they showed at that time. Now, years later, my other dog was declining quickly in her older age but I have since moved away from Muncie. I traveled over three hours to bring her to the same vet her brother went to because of the compassion the staff shows, the speed that they are able to work with their cremation services and get my fur baby back home, and knowing that they truly care for animals. For me, it wasn’t a question - I would drive the three hours there and three hours back because my fur babies deserve the best. Thank you for handling them with such care but also for the compassion your staff showed during both of the most difficult times saying goodbye to my children’s emotional support dogs after so many years.Kris M.Kris M. ★★★★★ Dr. Avila and Dr. Burns are two great Veterinarians - Compationate - Caring - Knowledgeable - and they listen to you and your pet - wouldn't go anywhere else -peyton P.peyton P. ★★★★★ 100% recommend. We had a sudden emergency that required surgery and they welcomed us immediatley and treated us like family. We haven't found a facility or vet that cared that much, so not a steady home. But, this is our new vet & home for sure!! No doubt! Everything was amazing, down to the smallest details from the doctor himself. The staff is so kind and caring. From the moment you are greeted at the door to when you leave the office- nothing is unanswered or unattended to. My dog loves to go there, even right after surgery or shots, she can't wait to go inside.Kirsten B.Kirsten B. ★★★★★ My dogs and mom’s cat were always treated gently and compassionately by the veterinariansand the technicians. I have always been included in their plan of care and they have patiently answered my questions.Kristin D.Kristin D. ★★★★★ The staff are always kind, caring and compassionate - no matter how many times you are there and/or have to make tough decisions. I had to help my nephew-son cross the bridge unexpectedly last week. I had asked for 2 vials of his fur so that my brother and I could both have a keepsake. The office surprised me with 2 sets of his paw and nose prints. That small kindness brought tears to my eyes. Thank you guys for being so amazing! ❤️❤️Anna W.Anna W. ★★★★★ We had our dog die there because of an animal attack. I ran in with panic and the workers immediately went out and helped out so much. They didn’t have any hesitation to pick up my dog even though he was bleeding a lot. They were compassionate with our dog and one of the workers were even crying because our dog died. They also treated us very well and they did very good, especially for having 8 people there for one dog.Manny Darby (Yo B.Manny Darby (Yo B. ★★★★★ We brought our dog here in July to cross the rainbow bridge. We weren't even clients, and they treated our girl with such respect that we decided they were going to become our new vet. They are so wonderful with our animals.Raising Unique R.Raising Unique R. ★★★★★ My recent experience at Care Animal hospital was amazing! I brought a very sick kitten in that I had just adopted and the vets, techs and staff did everything possible to save his life. 3 weeks later he is a happy, energetic, thriving kitten. All the staff who work there are very friendly and helpful and I would never go anywhere else to have my pets treated.Juliet W.Juliet W. ★★★★★ Our cat Tadpole that we adopted from an animal shelter for Christmas became deathly I'll. Care Animal Hospital did all they could to help him. We ultimately decided to send him over the rainbow bridge and chose their cremation services. I'm SO grateful for the fur I was given in an adorable glass bottle. When we brought him in it wasn't 100% certain we weren't taking him home we needed a final opinion. And in the midst of all the crying and heartbreak I forgot about fur and whiskers I'd and paw prints ... but they took care of that. THATNK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!! No words describe the relief of having something tangible.Dee D.Dee D. ★★★★★ The staff was very nice and caring to our dog. Very affordable and excellent care.Lonny W.Lonny W. ★★★★★ Thanks to Care Animal Hospital for getting my cat Alf in on such short notice. I appreciate the care and support they have always provided to my cats. I have used them for several years now for my cats and they have always been very helpful and supportive. Thank you for your service to our community!KrisKris ★★★★★ I had a great experience with Care animal hospital. My cat ate a piece of silicone and developed a blockage.

Their compassion & knowledge are FIRST RATE! We have been Care clients for many years - our dogs & cats have always been treated at Care from the time we rescue them, to the time they pass away. Our experiences have always left us feeling that our pets are in excellent hands!
