    Dr. Pirtle is great with my animals and has done some life saving work for my fur family. I trust his knowledge and expertise.

    by: hers6

    Dr. Pirtle is very good with animals. we had a dog that was tramatized as puppy with shots and always hyper-ventilated when he even saw a vet and he loved Dr. Pirtle! he has treated many of our cats and dogs over several years and has always been right and very attentive to our pets needs.

    by: slade3

    I have found Dr. Pirtle and his staffto be life savers many, many times. He is extremely patient with may questions. \r\nHe has always been right-on with his diagnosis and I don't know what I'd do without his services here.

    Dr. Pirtle is very kind to the animals, he gets down on their level (I have large dogs) and talks to them gently and pets them. He is very knowledgeable about all of the pets he deals with. He is very good at explaining to us what needs to be done , or what he recommends. I have one very old dog who has had multiple problems. I have been very pleased with Dr. Pirtle and his staff. I will always use him for all my vet needs.


    He is accessable after hours in an emergency, and he helps us out with a discout to the shelter animals at the Perry Co Animal Shelter.


    Not enough parking, he is very busy

    I have found Dr. Pirtle to be extremely knowledgable 100% of the time. He is also very generous when helping our Humane society.\r\nWe had to be referred to an orthopedic spacialist and he was right on with the diagnosis.


    Very knowledgeable and helpful. Can adress most vetting needs and can appropriatly and quickly refer to apecialist if necessary.


    Not available for some emergencies.
