What our clients say about us

We take our 2 fur babies and have both of them on the wellness plan which has saved us a TON of money. Dr. Carlson and the staff are very attentive and understanding. they treat all of us with respect and my dogs adore all of them.

Kendra H.

…. If they can handle my anxious pet, they can handle ANYTHING. Very thankful for the time spent with me today & level of professionalism I received. My vet ROCKS!

Laura B.

Dr Carlson and his staff have been wonderful to me and my fur friends. The staff, Kevin and Kaylee are so good with animals. They’ve all been supportive and compassionate during a very hard time after losing my sweet kitty. They know me and my pets by name and are now taking care of my new kitty. I won’t go anywhere else.

Kim W.

Everyone was very friendly and took the time to explain each procedure as it was taking place. (Puppy shots) Cooper seemed very at ease with the staff. The got us in and out fairly quickly without it feeling like they were rushing us. Very happy with everyone there. Would definitely recommend.

Heather P.

They took great measures to keep their clients and employees safe as they came out to the car to get Mona and had me pay over the phone. It’s for reasons like this that has kept me coming back for 40 years.

Paul S.

My pets always get great care at Hickman Mills Animal Hospital. I think that Dr. Carlson gives me the same advice about their care and treatment that he would for his own pets. He has helped me keep my cats and dogs healthy so that they have good, long lives.
