Petsimonials from Our Springfield Neighbors

    Twelve years ago, after going to 3 other vets, I finally found a practice that treats my dogs as well (really better than) my pediatrician treats my children. They have seen us through age 6-13 of our two Jack Russells (one with a serious eye condition) and now 6 years of two crazy Pugs (one who eats everything)! WE LOVE Deerfield—they are honest, straight forward, deeply caring, and give a range of options for costly events. You won't find a better Vet practice in Springfield, MO!

    We have had 4 different pets with Deerfield Vet Hospital, and we couldn't be happier with every aspect of their service. I especially like their pet portal—it allows me to save my pet's information online so I can communicate via the web when necessary. In my busy world, anything to make stuff easier, I'm all about. Also, they have an online pharmacy that I can order from or even pick up my stuff if i'm in the neighborhood. Good folks—and even my dog likes them (okay, my dog doesn't like going, but hey, he's a dog).

    We consider Deerfield as part of our extended family. Jack has been a patient since he was 5 weeks old, and it is comforting to know that he is well taken care of by the entire staff.

    It's hard to write just a few good words about Dr. Caldwell and his terrific staff, as we have been pretty involved with Deerfield for years. Our rescue Great Dane, Jewel, came to us with over 100 stitches where she had been seriously injured and treated by Ned and his devoted staff. Then, 2 years ago, Jewel came down with cancer, and once again it was Deerfield to the rescue. After surgery and radiation, she has bounced back to her "old" self and enjoys a healthy life, not to mention lazy winter naps. Our sincere thanks to everyone at Deerfield!

    Amazing! I had just moved to Springfield several years ago and hadn't found a vet yet when my dog got sick. I needed to get him somewhere fast, and Deerfield was the first place that could get me in. Lucky for me they were amazing, and we have been going there ever since. The front desk staff and doctors are amazing! Always friendly and make my baby boy feel comfortable. Competitive pricing and well worth every penny!
