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. My cat ate a piece of silicone and developed a blockage. I contacted Care via my vet at another clinic as an emergency and they took care of my cat that very day. They even worked overtime to do so!

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. ★★★★☆ Personnel were friendly, my dog was having some anxiety issues but they calmed him down and he took his shots like a trooper!Julayne M.Julayne M. ★★★★☆ 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.js_loader
