Dr. Acree was great. She was very nice to my little dog Claire. And she answered all my questions.
From staff to vet,the attention is immediate,courteous and responsive from the minute you enter the office. My pet is very anxious by temperament, but all do their best to assuage her anxiety with their calm manners.
We just had a yearly visit, but it is always so simple at Kirkwood Animal Hospital. The staff is friendly. Dr. Hemler is great! They've always been able to get me in if I had any problem with my dog. Overall I highly recommend them!
