What our clients say about us

  • "I've been taking my two chihuahuas to Meiners Animal Clinic since 2014. Dr. Mary and her staff performed both their neuter surgeries and administer their annual and biannual shots. One of my pup's also had to have his front dew claws removed due to continual snagging/breaking. His recovery was speedy and he was back on his feet in no time (pun intended). I always receive excellent service, a fair price, and friendly atmosphere at Meiners, and would recommend them to anyone who asked."
    Marcus Martinez
  • "I've been going to Meiners's Animal Clinic since I moved here in 1993. When the practice was sold to Dr Mary, I was afraid it wouldn't be the same. I've been really happy with the care my two small dogs have received and Dr Mary knows my animals almost as well as we do! I will continue to bring my fur kids here as they go the extra mile to get to know them and provide us with excellent veterinary care! The staff has been very helpful with any questions/concerns and if I need a same day appointment, they have always managed to get us in without making us feel like it is an imposition! Thank you Meiners's Animal Clinic!"
    Mary Mickley
  • "Friendly staff, Doc is really good with cats"
    Jen Wyman
  • "These folks really care about your pets. Dr. Mary and her whole crew are absolutely wonderful! Our 13-year-old retriever mix has been going to them his whole life; he recently was diagnosed with cancer, and the staff has been AWESOME in helping us make really knowledgeable decisions about how to treat and care for him! You couldn't pick a better place to bring your fur babies."
