I have been looking for a permanent vet for my finicky Shiba Inu, Bismarck and have found them! Dr. Peterson and staff are so warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable, I felt like we had already been going there for years during our first visit. Heather (the receptionist) calculated my dog's daily calories per last minute request and was extremely thorough and thoughtful. She was very open with how much time it might take to get his amount just right but with the mentality that we were all in it together and it wasn't something I would have to figure out on my own. Dr. Peterson was quick and up front with the vaccines and what needed to actually be done vs. what we "should" do (none of the pressuring you into doing a million tests for something that "could be" bad.) No one was in a rush to move on, they took their time to get to know us, Dr. Peterson came up and gave Bismarck treats two separate times and made sure we knew we were welcome to stop in any time just to say hi and get him used to the place. It's obvious that the entire practice loves animals and they love what they do.
