  • "I brought our 7-year-old pointer to be neutered, as our regular vet does not do surgeries. Very happy with the service. Charges were less than quoted and service was exceptional! Recommended them to 2 other pet owners, who came back to me just as happy with the service provided as I was!"
    Melissa M. - 8/8/2018
  • "I have been coming here for years and I love how well the staff care for our pets and making the right choices for our pets. We had just recently put our 12-year-old golden down and it was a very difficult time and they were very helpful, supportive and empathetic. They even did a clay paw print for us and I absolutely loved it. We just recently got our new pup Luna and I am bringing her to this amazing place because of how amazing our vet is!! Definitely would recommend east Springfield veterinary hospital to anyone"
