Even though the animal clinic of Kearney had no openings yesterday they still took in our furry baby. They did everything in their power to save him, absolutely everything.The veterinarian caring for him kept in constant contact with us. Although our little boy couldn't come home with us, they let all 5 of us pile in to say goodbye to him. They were full of other customers with actual appointments but they gave us so much time with him, all while taking up a room they probably needed.They were very gentle and loving with our boy and our family. The staff, from the receptionist to the tech to the veterinarian, were all so understanding, caring and patient with us.I can't express how much we appreciate the care they gave our family and our fur baby. I highly recommend this practice not only for the services they provide but for the way each and every member of staff treats their patients and families.Kimberly W.Kimberly W. ★★★★★ There is nothing I’d say to do to make it better!

They are going to become my main vet.Alayna C.Alayna C. ★★★★★ Provided excellent care for my sick dog!!Rachelle W.Rachelle W. ★★★★★ Dr. Amy Bunck took tender care of Trudy on Monday. She explained a couple of different directions we could go in proceeding with Trudy’s care and the costs related to both directions. We decided to go with pain meds and a “wait and see” over blood tests and X-rays and Trudy is now purring in my lap, back to her happy li’l self! The relatively inexpensive checkout fee was a blessing. We were so glad they were able to see her so quickly on Monday afternoon as she had been struggling all weekend. The Animal Clinic of Kearney will be now our vet destination of choice!Jeanne H.Jeanne H. ★★★★★ Best animal clinic.
