★★★★★ This place is amazing. The entire team is fantastic. We just started going there and they greet my dog my name. No long waits, check in is easy, they get you in a room super quick and are so respectful of your time. They all treat my dog like they’ve known him for years. We also started acupuncture here due to a spinal injury. The acupuncture experience has been great and I can’t wait to continue. They are easy to schedule with and even have an app to make things easier to make appointments on and access records. I can’t say enough nice things about this office. I wish human doctors offices were this great!Erica A.Erica A. ★★★★★ My two boys have had continually good care since puppyhood. Nash just recently crossed the Rainbow bridge just a few months shy of 13; Hudson is now 13 and going strong with the assistance he gets for his diabetes, joint pain, and blindness. They were litter mates, so Hudson now is somewhat lonely but still doing very strong physically.Paul J.Paul J. ★★★★★ Passionate about animals, professional to humans.Andrew MAndrew M ★★★★★ I have a cat that I adopt with heath problem when I fist adopt her I did not know she hade food allergies and she was scared of people when we fist got her so We hold off on taking her to the vet do to not know cat behavior or anything about cat and was fear of what she will do to them Duse I love this place especially Dr. Shade and her team were so patient and they teach me a lot about cat they gave me good information on cat and how to take care of It and they get right to the point where if you ask them to do something they will do it and they the best vet I have ever been too they are expansive but they care about there people and animals 💯AnnaAnna ★★★★★ We had a great experience at Hartrick Vet when visiting with our extremely fearful, reactive dog. We entered the patient room through a separate side door so our dog’s anxiety wouldn’t be heightened by waiting in the lobby and seeing other dogs. The vet tech. that assisted us was kind and knowledgeable about reactive dogs so she helped make the experience a positive one. We saw Dr. Syed, and he helped us make the best decision as to how he should administer vaccines and complete his exam to ensure our dog was as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend Hartrick Vet for those with fearful or anxious dogs!Greta J.Greta J. ★★★★★ We have an extremely difficult and very powerful senior male cat. We hold off on taking him to the vet in fear of what he’ll do to them as he’s done some damage in the past. Dr. Shade and her team were so patient and even though he got crazy, they were able to pivot a few times until we figured out how best to handle him. Highly recommend these ladies! So thankful! This is Bodhi…the calm before the storm lolMelissa T.Melissa T. ★★★★★ Dr. Brady & Dr. Syed are fantastic, as is the entire staff. The clinic is extremely clean and well-managed. My dog has only received excellent care from Hartrick Royal Oak.Emma B.Emma B. ★★★★★ Dr and staff are excellent. Made us feel welcome and took very nice care of my Persian cat with her bloodwork and exam. Thank you!Jennifer C.Jennifer C. ★★★★★ Dr. Larsen is the best! We took our cat to her when we could not get a definitive answer from our previous vet. She was kind, caring and quick to diagnose, we will be taking our two other cats to her!Sharon H.Sharon H. ★★★★★ Love Hartrick! In addition to their expertise, EVERYONE there is sensitive and caring with my highly anxious pups.Elizabeth S.Elizabeth S. ★★★★★ I decided to change vets to a more convenient location and was very happy I chose Hartricks. The office is clean and up to date. All the staff was very friendly and upbeat which is always a good indication that they love their jobs. My dog is older and needed oral surgery so I was very anxious about the procedure. Cameron and Dr. Perkowski did an amazing job not only taking care of him but also me and my worries and concerns. Highly recommended!p R.p R. ★★★★★ I brought my cat here for the first time recently, since my prior vet was booked through Christmas. They were able to get me in for a new patient appointment right away! They have a separate cat and dog waiting room to make the animals feel more comfortable.The appointment was great! We saw Dr. Larson and she is very knowledgeable and helpful about dietary needs. After the appointment, they emailed me detailed notes about all of the vaccinations, check-up tests, and services they provided.Overall, this is a really great vet office and I am more than pleased with their service!Haley H.Haley H. ★★★★★ I had to take my cat in because of an injury. Dr. Brady was very thorough in the examination and treatment of my cat. I also received a follow-up call from Dr. Brady a few days later, which was very appreciated. Hartrick delivers high-quality service and professionalism. I highly recommend this veterinarian practice.kirsten Wkirsten W ★★★★★ Staff and Doctor very helpful. Dr. explained in understandable detail the problem with my dog and gave a couple of solutions.All's well !!!Doug C.Doug C. ★★★★★ I’ve bounced around a few vets after having subpar experiences where I felt rushed, not listened to, glossed over, etc., and this was the first place I felt seen and heard. Staff took their time with me and my cat, I didn’t get condescending vibes, and they were clear and transparent. Scheduling was easy, checkout was easy, everything was easy. I hope this will become my new, long term practice. Thanks y’all.Jenna S.Jenna S. ★★★★★ Really friendly and knowledgeable staff. Always on time with their appointments, I've never had a wait. They also recently helped me get a heartworm refill sorted out over the phone when I ran a few doses shy of our annual appointment schedule. Saved me from the visit fee and an unprotected dog while I awaited my pet insurance to reset to cover the next visit. Thanks!Patrick S.Patrick S. ★★★★★ All of the staff members here are incredibly helpful and kind. They all clearly love animals! They are patient with my cats and accept that some cats have more shy personalities than others, but show calmness and patience to comfort them. Dr. Larsen took the time to answer my questions and provide a lot of suggestions to help my cats thrive. I have needed forms in the past and received a very prompt email response, with the forms available to pick up later that day. Communication is great here!Kate R.Kate R. ★★★★★ Good placemichele M.michele M. ★★★★★ Great staff! My dog loves the Techs and Dr Schade. Thank you all for your help.D. F.D. F. ★★★★★ Nice facility and friendly staffBlake T.Blake T. ★★★★★ The staff at Hartrick Vet Clinic went out of their way to make my cat feel comfortable. Greeted with a cat waiting room, and exam room only for cats, they also provided a feline friendly approach to their care, allowing my cat to set the boundaries for the visit. Their considerations were above and beyond and I highly recommend them for feline care!Stephanie H.Stephanie H. ★★★★★ First I need to say that I cannot give Dr. Schade enough praise. She took our pup under our care after being stringed along for months regarding our pups first ACL repair at a different vet clinic. She did not hesitate to have the difficult conversation with us that we needed to get TPLO surgery and that we more than likely need to get the other one done in the future. She was up front about the costs of surgery and how the recovery would be. She was diligent about responding to our emails and sending in scripts for medications as needed. This past month our pup tore her other ACL and I was disappointed to hear that Dr. Schade was no longer practicing at our vet clinic, but I was thrilled to find out she didn’t move too far! From the moment I called Hartrick, you could tell that the office staff are extremely familiar with these sorts of cases. The initial phone call was like a breath of fresh air, the woman scheduling was so kind and was able to get our pup in for her initial visit with surgery following within a week. The techs were also extremely knowledgeable and welcoming as well. We are about 2 1/2 weeks out from our pups 2nd TPLO repair in 11 months and she is recovering so well. Thank you Dr. Schade and Hartrick Vet Clinic. We can’t wait to have our crazy pup back to normal.Carlee M.Carlee M. ★★★★★ Expensive!HIDING LIKE YA'LL B.HIDING LIKE YA'LL B. ★★★★★ Hartrick gets you in quickly, is always on time, the facility is sparkling clean and most importantly everyone takes care of my boy (a 100lb German shepherd). As a result Kazan goes to the Vet without problems, is calm and gets great medical care. Thanks everyoneNancy R.Nancy R. ★★★★★ We’ve been bringing our dog here for about a year and every experience has been positive! The staff is always warm and friendly, it’s very easy to get an appointment (which has been especially helpful in urgent situations), and it’s clean! This is a wonderful place to take our dog!Kara DKara D ★★★★★ Wow! What a great experience. I have a super senior kitty with severe anxiety and they treated her so gently and went at her own pace. The tech took extra time to let her warm up to her. The providers we saw were so helpful and knowledgeable. We are in good hands and I'm so grateful.Wren C.Wren C. ★★★★★ My dog was very old and woke up one morning and she said it was her time to leave me.. I called Hartwick veterinary they got me in that day when other places told me 2or3 days they gave me as long as I wanted with her before and after I said my love yous and good byes I would recommend this place 💯 so from me to u ty hartrickWayne N.Wayne N. ★★★★★ Pawwwsitive visits every time.Tina W.Tina W. ★★★★★ The vets and vet techs at Hartrick have always treated me and my pet kindly and with respect. My dog gets very nervous any time he visits the vet but everyone has always been patient with him. They have a nice app to help keep track of vaccines and medications too which is a nice plus!Martin G.Martin G. ★★★★★ Dr. Larsen is amazing. I’ve been taking my cat here for a couple years & everyone is always so nice & understanding. You can tell everyone here loves what they do. they even gave my cat a Valentine’s Day goodie bag & a birthday card!Sarah P.Sarah P. ★★★★★ We are so blessed that this place opened up. The staff is always super friendly and professional, appointments are always on time and we LOVE the veterinarians. You can really tell they love and cherish our pets like we do and will do anything to ensure they live healthy, happy lives. I've suggested this location to every friend I have with a pet in the area.N G.N G. ★★★★★ Extremely kind and welcoming staff. I left feeling relieved that my cats health was taken seriously - the vet spent time with us and didn't simply walk into the room, poke my cat and leave. Most often I leave a vets office feeling guilt ridden, dumb, stressed and monetarily depleted - that was NOT the case here. I think we've found our new vet <3McKenzie S.McKenzie S. ★★★★★ Hartrick’s staff is caring, professional and made sure I felt comfortable with the whole ordeal. When I picked up Kenzi , she seemed calm. Not afraid or ready to go home which is what has happened in other places. She was treated well. Highly recommend Hartrick for all your vet needs.Raven W.Raven W. ★★★★★ We took our cat Lily in for regular vaccines as well as a general check-up, and were both a bit nervous about the experience since she has only left home once or twice in her life (she's 4 years old now). The veterinary technicians and doctors could not have been more respectful and easy to talk to about any concerns that we had. By the time Lily was back home with her brother she was as relaxed and easy-going as any other day. Hard to believe it now but I'm actually looking forward to getting our other cat in for their check-up, knowing it was so easy! I also must say, costs were much lower than I was expecting! Thanks to the entire team at Hartrick!Alex C.Alex C. ★★★★★ Staff is great and everything is explained so that you understand. Dr. Brown is super gentle with my cat.Jennifer J.Jennifer J. ★★★★★ Good service to animals and friendly people to deal with.allan F.allan F. ★★★★★ I followed my previous veterinarian to this location. I was a bit apprehensive because my last vet was strictly feline patients, but my last few appointments were a breeze. They have a separate area for cats and dogs. The staff I have encountered a great. They are patient, especially with my cat that tends to be fussy with vets. Every time I have talked to them on the phone or via email, the responses were fast and they are all very kind. Dr. Larsen is my vet for all three of my cats and her two vet techs I used to see before they all transferred here create an amazing team. They use an app called PetDesk which makes food and medicine ordering and appointment scheduling easy and convenient. I recommend trying these guys out if you are looking for a new vet. Plus, they accept Care Credit!Connor D.Connor D. ★★★★★ It's so nice I found them so close to my house. Very nice and professional staff.Chamari F.Chamari F. ★★★★★ Professional and clean office. Staff is very kind and explain all procedure and follow up visit in laymen term, my first doggie, I was educated on how to take care of her. Thank you for your professionalism .Sonya R.Sonya R. ★★★★★ Sadly, we had to put our dog to sleep last Saturday and the nurses and doctor at hartrick were unbelievable. They treated Capone as if he was their own dog. They made a heartbreaking procedure bearable.Harriet W.Harriet W. ★★★★★ Started using Hartrick Veterinary Hospital over a year and have very pleased. We have several dogs there now and are super happy with staff and services.Tracie L.Tracie L. ★★★★★ Very caring staff. They saw our dog quickly.Eric J.Eric J. ★★★★★ So my little Brussels Griffin Chihuahua has a bad tooth that’s loose and I really needed him seen. The only vet to accommodate on short notice was Hartrick. Upon arrival I was greeted by a super kind and friendly staff! Moose who was shaking and scared was put at ease by all. We did not have a long wait and other clients I saw check out had big smiles. Everything was clean, orderly, and the vet was compassionate, thorough, and explained everything well. Moose will be getting further care and I’m relieved he doesn’t have to wait months to address his problem!kelly D.kelly D. ★★★★★ I walked in without an appointment due to an emergency with my two dogs who had been pepper sprayed. I was so upset and severely distraught. The front desk person and vet tech (I wish I knew their names) did everything in their power to calm me down and fix the situation. Not only were they fully booked, they still made time to accommodate me. They were so attentive and kind with my dogs. I’ve used this vet before due to location convenience. However, this experience really proved to me they care about the well being of any person or animal that walks in their doors. Thank you, for being so sincere and genuine.Lynn M.Lynn M. ★★★★★ Always have had a good experience. Dr Syed listens to all concerns and gives good advice and treatment plans.Chad R.Chad R. ★★★★★ The facility was very clean and welcoming. The staff was very friendly, thorough and caring. We went for our annual check up and vaccines. The whole process was fairly quick but I felt like our dog was cared for the entire time, not rushed.I liked that they had a separate waiting area for cats and dogs as our dog gets very excited around cats and tends to spook them 🙂Sara S.Sara S. ★★★★★ Been going to Hartricks for over 60 years, always thoughtful and efficient with all the animals we've brought, including our goat.Jennifer M.Jennifer M. ★★★★★ Team is super friendly!Chumly F.Chumly F. ★★★★★ We love Doc Brown!!!!Meghan J.Meghan J. ★★★★★ We were referred to Hartrick for our 3 dogs in our new neighborhood and couldn’t be happier! Dr Syed took as much time we needed with us and we felt very comfortable and learned so much in this first visit to help our anxious pup. He called the next day to give us the bloodwork results and asked how our dog was doing with his new meds. We are super happy with Dr Syed and his staff!!Kathleen A.Kathleen A. ★★★★★ So happy we found Hartwick! Staff is great and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Brown.

The entire staff was extremely friendly and took care as a priority. Glad to have them close by!Chris G.Chris G. ★★★★★ I seriously am in love with this vet practice. This was my first time there and my cat was having some stomach issues. They didn’t dismiss me, like some vets maybe do, but they really listened to me & came up with a care plan. Every question or concern I had, the vet throughly explained his answers & was just overall a wonderful person. The technicians were lovely too! I plan on recommending this place to all my friends.jasperjasper ★★★★★ Clean facility. Staff is friendly. Saw Dr. Syed whom I would recommend anyone to see if their pet is sick as he explained my cat’s condition well. Would recommend anyone to go if their pet is sick or needs a checkup!Samantha B.Samantha B. ★★★★★ The only place I will take my animals. They are amazing and really took care of me when I lost my cat to FIP last year. They also diagnosed her right away when my previous vet was charging me thousands in tests. They only had to look at her bloodwork and knew what was going on. Can’t recommend them enough!Alexis L.Alexis L. ★★★★★ Hartrick is amazing! Clean, friendly, and, professional. They have taken exceptional care of my 18 year old cat and my new kitten. Even when I had an emergency with my senior cat and they couldn’t fit me in, they referred me to another clinic that could. Affordable and they don’t try to sell you on unnecessary services. Would strongly recommend 🙂Rosemary G.Rosemary G. ★★★★☆ New Hartrick has a cat specialist. Pricy, tough for a person on limited income.Mary Z.Mary Z. ★★★★☆ Staff was caring and professional.

Hartrick Veterinary Clinic was recommended by a friend about ten years ago when we got our Cosmo, the Wonder Dog. We’ve been very pleased with the doctors Cosmo’s seen – he’s partial to Dr. Witt. The staff members are very kind and helpful.

Dawn S.

Very nice staff and doctors, reasonable prices, easy to schedule appointments and get in fast. I always have a great experience there.

Andrew M.

I absolutely love it here. They will teach you how to take good care of your pet. My animals love visiting everyone here and the treats :). I also love their office cats on Facebook.

They take great care of the animals! A friend recommended this place and I was very pleased with Dr. Witt and the Vet techs… top shelf care for your furry friends.

Tom B.

We have gone to Dr. Witt at Hartrick for over 30 years. He and the staff provide outstanding care, for reasonable prices. He even came to our home when it was time one of our dogs to cross the Rainbow Bridge.
