  • 1. Dr. Rakestraw & Staff

    by: Kyboy42

    Dr. Rakestraw attends to the pets as if they were his own. Recently took my Mother In Law's dog and he personally called and talked to her. They had to keep it overnight and of course this is her baby so she was very concerned and he was assuring to her that Bo II would be well taken care of.


    Great Doc

  • 3. Personable, Caring Staff

    by: rjlupinskat

    We've had quite a few vets over the years, and Dr. Rakestraw simply has to be the best vet we've ever had! Caring, attentive, personable... he and his staff (particularly Lisa and Jessica) speak to you as an intelligent person, explain what options are available, what is suggested... they work with you on payments for emergencies, on what care you can give at home, on explaining cause/effect.\r\n\r\nOverall wonderful group. It still saddens me he does not work with equines (and I tell him this all the time!). Could use another reliable, caring horse vet!\r\n\r\nSuper job, all of them.


    Personable, knowledgeable, caring, explains what's going on


    Sadly, does not work with equines

    by: Dunderblixem

    Dr. Rakestraw actually takes the time to talk with you about you pet. And if necessary, he provides house calls. These two charasterics, along with his vast knowledge and wonderful, caring staff make Animal House THE place to take your pet!


    Great customer service and incredible animal care.

    This is a really great place for your pets. Dr Rakestraw and his staff provide excellent care. We had to have one of our dogs put down recently. They went above and beyond our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone.

    by: UKTOBY

    This is a great place. Dr Rakestraw has treated all of our animals and very kindly and compassionately put down one of our dogs who was in pain and had a poor quality of life. They have worked us in when we really needed them and we have sent many friends to them. Good service at a fair price.


    Outstanding staff
