What our clients say

I rescued Lilly out in Cali and when I moved back to Havelock back in 2016, Dr. K started to see Lilly for all of her visits. Lilly loves her and so do I. Havelock Animal Hospital is the BEST place in the surrounding area, in my opinion. The staff is very friendly, Doctors are great, they are very empathetic and show lots of compassion in every situation. This is my ONLY option for the Best care for my Furbaby💕💕


I took my child to the vet for her yearly check-up, to update her vaccinations, get her nails trimmed, and have a dental visit. I was very pleased with the service provided by the veterinarian, as well as the appointment times and costs. In my opinion, this is one of the best vets around, and they always follow up after providing their services.

I pick up flea and tick medication every month for my cousin's dog Franklin (boxer/lab/pit mix I think) at the front desk. They are fast and patient whenever I have questions or need to schedule appointments.

Holland Topolski

Dr. K, is amazing, thorough, and very caring. The staff is always professional and selfless . That includes during stressful and high pressure times.

Wesley Gilbert

Love this place, and have been treating my dog since she was 6 week old. Reasonably priced great doctors and great technicians.

Easy process for new clients. Friendly and great service for my 2 cats. Very clean and calm environment/vibe. First time for my cats to receive their shots here, excellent experience. Very gentle working with my cats. Great customer service experience, especially when asking for quotes for future treatments/procedures.

Shelia Mueller

Dr's Kucera and Truskey are awesome veterinarians. Friendly front desk staff and not to mention great behind the scenes staff. Always greeted with a friendly smile and acknowledgement. I will always recommend this animal clinic!

Brea Smith

Havelock Animal Hospital saved my yellow lab puppy from parvo. He needed a blood transfusion and one of their employees, Katie, went home and got her black lab to donate blood to our puppy. It was the blood transfusion that saved him. He would have died otherwise. We are absolutely blown away that an employee would volunteer her own dog for such a procedure. You really get a sense that these people care.

James C.

My German shepherd dog had a stinky skin infection that was making him feel awful and run down.These guys got us in and took care of my baby. They were so gentle and kind. The ladies in the front office were just fabulous as well. We switched to them for both of our dogs' care now.

Lorena Bazen

Took Max here and had a very pleasant experience. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Shimmel was very nice and professional. Parking was plentiful. Max had no complaints. Very affordable care. Just moved to the area and will be bringing both my pups here.

Jerry Peay

I've been with Havelock animal hospital for 20 years and the vets and the staff are very friendly and loving and care for your animals like they're their own family.

Tina Woods

I was greeted by a very friendly office manager named Rebekah who was very helpful in what I needed to get done. I needed to get rabies shots for my animals and get copies of their records. I highly recommend and if you go ask for Rebekah she is very helpful.
