Our Clients Are Our Fans

and they know how to cheer us on!

The staff at Life Care are exceptional. If you are in need of a vet, I highly recommend this place. They treated my dog like one of their own and were genuinely interested in his well-being. They continue to help and are never burdened by our many questions/concerns. I can’t say enough about how wonderful they are!

The entire staff at Life Care Animal Hospital are amazing. I had an emergency situation with my dog today and they were so great with my dog. A very scary situation was quickly taken care of and thanks to the great team my dog will make a full recovery! Thank you to the entire team!

Life care is amazing. They go above and beyond every single time I bring my dog in. They often call to check on how my dog is doing when he’s sick and to make sure he’s getting better. I highly recommend Life Care and am grateful to have such fantastic and caring vets- both Dr Helga and Dr Larry.

Life Care has been an excellent vet for my puppy. They have been patient, willing to discuss everything, and knowledgeable. The staff is helpful and the techs are top notch. Pricing is absolutely fair. If you’re looking for a vet in the East metro, they are a solid choice!

The staff at life care are amazing. I have been taking my dogs there for almost 10 years and even when I had to say goodbye to 2 of them, they were very considerate.
