    Vet in Ames

    My girlfriend has a cat that she is thinking of taking to a vet to get looked at.

    Anyone have any recommendations on who to (or not) go to?

    Re: Vet in Ames

    I mean I took my cat to the one in west Ames right by Perfect Games, and Kum and Go. It was only for a shot so I don't really have much to judge them on. The place looked clean and professional.

    The Vet Med school?

    I don't know what condition that area is in right now, but when I lived there, that's where I took my rabbit to get neutered. They were really good. Professional and the vet explained the entire procedure to me (almost TOO graphically...).

    I'll take care of your cat problem and you'll never have to deal with it ever again.

    We tried to take our rabbit there to get neutered a few years ago, and they said they no longer do that for rabbits. We ended up taking the rabbit to the place on Duff, kind of across from Kum & Go (just north of Lincoln Way). It was one of the only places in town that deals with "exotics."

    It's a house cat. Not a vet in the world that isn't qualified to look at a house cat. Worst case scenario is he accidently kills the cat, in which case, you get another one from the ten million or so available for free at any shelter. Cats are disposable.

    Companion Animal Clinic up in Gilbert. Dr. Tammy and staff care about the pets and the people who bring them in.

    all pets animal hospital, on 2nd street I believe just off the corner of duff and lincoln way. when we lived in ames we took both our dogs there. they always treated us well and weren't overly expensive. boarding was also available and at a fair rate. had we not moved, we would surely still be going to them.

    Re: Vet in Ames

    I have taken my pets to the ISU Vet Clinic for emergencies. You are going to pay through the nose there.

    I took my dog to All Pets Animal Hospital when I lived in Ames. I thought they did good work.

    I take my pets to the Heartland Pet Hospital in Story City currently. They are the best vets I have worked with. They are very upfront with you about what procedures are needed without bombarding you with a lot of extra services. Very affordable. So much so that family members bring their pets from the Des Moines area for care.

    I have several friends and neighbors who take their pets to the Companion Animal Clinic in Gilbert and they say very good things about that place. Quality care at an affordable price.
