Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Excellent service with a smile. The staff knows your pets name and cares about their well being. When my dog had serious stomach problems, Dr Rex did a great job taking care of her and fixing the problem."
    Denise D
  • "Wonderful place to leave your dogs. You could tell they enjoyed their stay and looked fantastic when we picked them up. They care for your dogs like they were their own. Staff is fantastic too so personal and caring."
  • "Love Dr Rex and her staff. Sincere concern for my pet turtle. Had it not been for the knowledgeable care, and detailed assistance from the staff of Veterinary Associates of Manning, Monkey would have died. Dr Rex and staff went far above and beyond in all areas of care. Labs, medication calculations, emergency overnight observation, thorough and easy to understand post visit instructions, and many other accommodations. My red earred slider may just be an aquatic turtle, however, these wonderful people understand that even a turtle can be a valued and cherished part of the family. I highly recommend choosing Veterinary Associates of Manning for knowledgeable and supportive care of any animal."

They care for the animals, but they also care for their owners by showing that they know how important our pets are to us. I could give many more examples, but it would turn in to a book!
