Independence Animal Hospital is the best!!! The Drs and staff are compassionate and knowledgeable. I have had the best care for my animals. Dr. Bolton absolutely rocks in my opinion! And all the ladies are so nice and helpful! My daughter came from Wichita to have her dogs cared for in a time of need. I am so grateful for the care they were given. All my dog children give Independence Animal Hospital a “high four” to you!. And Tracker sends a big wet kiss!

Always clean, friendly, knowledgeable, and fast. Never had a bad experience there. It’s a great place to take your pet. A lot better than that other place in town. Plus the jokes on the Marquis sign are always hilarious.

Always respectful. Treat my animals great. Explain what, why, and how without making me feel uncomfortable about asking so many questions.

I am VERY impressed with all the staff. They are kind, helpful & polite. They really care about my pets and that’s most important to me. In my book, they “walk on water”. They work within your budget too! They are AWESOME!
