  • 1. a look from inside

    by: techeart

    I have not found a vet more dedicated and caring in all my years as a pet owner. Dr. Altmeyer is knowlegeable and honest. The staff is incredibe. They'll laugh with you and cry with you. You might say I'm biased because I've been a tech there for 6 years but I would say I'm enlightened. I can give you my opinions as someone on the inside. I have had terrible experienses with veterinarians in the past and can honestly say I would trust this staff and Drs Altmeyer and Porter with my pets lives. In fact, I have. Thank everyone for your honest reviews, whether positive or not.

    Pros

    obvious love for what they do

    Cons

    yeah that road does suck in winter

  • 2. Great Care

    by: fdj927

    From the first phone call to walking out the door, everything is handled in a personal, caring way! They are so understanding and knowledgeable about everything. Even my dogs are not afraid to visit because they are treated so well there!

    Pros

    personal care, quick appointments, pleasant personnel

    Cons

    About a 40 minute drive for me, but worth it

  • 3. great place

    by: Kimme

    a very pleasant experience with my cat. Dr. Altmeyer declawed my cat(cause i have very thin skin, and he scratched me). The staff was so friendly and caring towards me and my cat. Thank you again. I would recommend everyone to go here, although roads are not very nice in the winter time.

    Pros

    very caring staff

    Cons

  • 6. Bob Altmeyer, Veterinary

    by: rewolfe

    I've taken my pets to Dr. Bob, as I call him, for 20 years, and I've known him forever. I don't know if many knows that he has an allergy to cats and he's great around them, too. His staff is so helpful in times of needs and also take that extra step with their care. I always recommend friends him. \n I had a Siberian Husky and took him to another vet when he was a puppy,maybe 40 pounds, and the dr. who was taking care of him showed fear. I thought, how professional is this? Then I heard Bob finally opened his Veterinary business and instantly went to him and haven't changed and that was in the early 80's. And, as I've briefly mentioned before, the staff he has are just as great! His office is clean, well run, and has a great homelike atmosphere. \n I always recommend him to my friends as a kind, considerate and caring Dr. to pets oh, and people too. Way to go Bob!

    Pros

    His business is very centrally located.

    Cons

    Can't think of any.

    by: pl16201

    Both Lexi and Halli go to Altmeyers and have been very well taken care of even when they are a tad jittery like cats can be. The doctor and staff have always been friendly and attentive. Our waits are generally reasonable and as well as the prices for the services.

    Pros

    Gentle with the animals, kind and compassionate.

    Cons

    None
