“I brought my 7-year-old Weimaraner, Jake, in for bloat. I had answers within an hour that he needed emergency surgery… The surgeon called me at 12:40 am saying the surgery was completed and went well… I am forever thankful to the staff, technicians, doctors, and surgeon who saved his life! Thank you!!”

“We took our dog Hunter in when his back legs started to fail and were seen by Dr. Olson the day after we called… our dog was treated with great kindness and gentleness. Dr. Olson answered every question we had, was extremely professional and friendly, and went out of his way to give us the best advice possible. I want to thank him, and the entire staff of Pieper Memorial, for everything they did for our family.”

“I went to Pieper Memorial and saw Dr. Gross. From the moment we went into the office she was friendly, listened to my concerns, and made her recommendations…She tried different treatments over the next few months and was constantly in contact with me. She answered every single one of my questions and in such a timely manner …I was always made to feel comfortable here, the staff was nothing but knowledgeable and comforting, and I have honestly never trusted a vet more than I have Dr. Gross and her staff.”

“Pieper offers a comprehensive physical therapy program that has made a big difference in [my dog]’s recovery... I can't say enough about the work they do at Pieper Veterinary hospital. They made a very scary time into a happy ending.... I recommend this hospital unconditionally to anyone who needs special and loving care for their pets.”

“I was referred by my vet to Pieper Memorial for an ultrasound with Dr. Freer on my dog Bridgette. The staff was very friendly on the phone and in person… Dr. Freer who did the ultrasound was amazing. He was friendly with us and with Bridgette; he truly cares for his patients. Not every vet is passionate about their job, but Dr. Freer showed he was…If I ever have to have an ultrasound done again I will definitely be back.”
