Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I can't say enough good things about the vets at The Rapids. We ended up with an emergency situation on Christmas Eve night with our little Shorkie dog being picked up and shaken by the foster dog we had in our care. Dr. Knight called us and met us at the office at 10:00 pm and ended up she needed surgery which happened until 1:00 am on Christmas morning. I am so thankful for the amazing kind and compassionate care that we received that night and continue to receive with follow up visits and calls to make sure she's ok. You and your team really went above and beyond. I will never take my pets anywhere else."
    Paula Lippiatt
  • "This is an exceptional animal hospital. The doctors take their time to greet and love up your pets each and every time you visit. They are knowledgeable and I will always bring my pets and recommend the Rapids team! Despite this recent string of 1-star reviews from people who don't even bring their pets to this clinic - this place is nothing short of amazing and the staff truly care for all animals that step into their establishment."
    Angelo Cocozzoli
  • "It doesn’t matter which vet you get here, whether you’re taking your dog or your cat, they are all thorough and friendly and amazing with your fur babies. Dr. Claire has been awesome with her time and knowledge with my newly diagnosed diabetic 8yr old cat I would give them a 5/5 or a 100/100 whatever the matrix is. Would not take my four-legged children anywhere else."
