  • 2. Great vet and staff!

    by: chrstmasnoodle

    We use Dr. Talburt and Dr. Gunter for all our pets(1 dog and 4 cats). We can't say enough about the care our pets receive here! They are knowledgeable and always go the extra mile to help us. We have had to call them in on holidays, late nights and weekends and they are always there for us. They always call to see how my pets are doing after a visit. The staff is wonderful! They really love animals and it shows! We are lucky to have this kind of care in our area for our pets. I would recommend them to anyone!

    Pros

    always helpful and really care about animals

    Cons

    can't think of any

  • 3. Talburt Is A-OK

    by: kschachel

    Since coming to Missouri from Wisconsin, we have been using the services of Talburt Animal Health Center, located just five miles from our home.\n\nOn the several occasions we have had to use their services, Dr. Talburt has expressed a great interest in our pets, been patient in explaining any treatment needed, and gentle and tender with our animals themselves.\n\nTalburt has a Well Animal program that includes yearly check ups with an EKG!!! This was a first for us and we were relieved to know that our pet's "ticker" was in good shape.\n\nWe highly recommend this vet.

    Pros

    Caring Staff, Clean and Modern Facility

  • 6. Talburt & Gunter are the best!

    by: MaryRB

    This is one of the best vet clinics I have used. The staff are friendly and obviously love animals themselves. They know us and our pets by name. The doctors are very knowledgeable and up-to-date on diagnoses and treatments. One of them is always on call for emergencies. (We once had to call at 3 a.m. on a Saturday morning!) They have lab equipment in the clinic so you don't have to wait more than a few minutes for results. When my 15-year-old Golden retriever died they even sent a sympathy card, signed by the whole staff. I have heard that their services are a bit more expensive than at some other offices in the area but I believe they are worth every penney.

    Pros

    Very caring and knowledgeable staff. Someone is on call 24/7 for emergencies. Lab equipment in-house.

    Cons

    None
