What Our Pet Parents Say

We have taken several different pets there over 15 years. Nothing but the best, most compassionate service and care; highly recommended. They also have a well staffed and sophisticated surgery suite between Carbondale and Marion.

They saved my rabbit from dying from a brain parasite when other vets were just treating him for an ulcer. He had a 50/50 chance of keeping his vision and they were able to save his eye as well. I've gotten both of my rabbits spayed/neutered here and I trust them with my buns more than anyone else.

Erica L.

Just love this office. Everyone is always nice, they took care of our old furbaby until she passed and now they are helping us with our new rescue puppy and a rescue kitten. Thank you for caring.

Dawn L.

Absolutely great vet. They clearly care about animals and do a great job.

My husband and I are in the animal rescue world and have 5 dogs. We have been going to Dr. Kayne for 10+ years when it comes to our furbabies. Dr. Kayne has gone above and beyond, and you know she cares when she gets down on the floor with your pet, and takes her time, very thorough. We have thrown at her a couple of tough dog cases as rescue dogs can need a little work, and she always called and kept us informed and what the best plan should be. She has saved so many of ours dogs, and we will see no one but her, even though the other vets are fine. The staff really care about the animals and call our dogs by name when we come in, they just care, plain and simple. Keep up the great work. Thank you DR. KAYNE AND STAFF

100/10, fantastic place. Clean, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, affordable, flexible. They have always been extremely kind and have always gone above and beyond in their level of service and care.

We have been patients since 2007. They've saved the life of one of my dogs on multiple occasions. Dental cleanings. Dental extractions. Emergencies. Shots.

They've always been great to work with. Patient. Kind. And understanding. From plucking hairs from our Maltipoo's ear to saving my chihuahua after he was hit by a car.. They've been fair and did what was best for our animals.

I recently had to put my Macy down, she was old and blind and had arthritis. I called the vet and they took us to a room and she laid down and put her head on my lap and she passed very peaceful. Central Hospital for Animals, was incredible, not just that day, but every time Macy had an appointment. They have a great staff, great Vets, you cant go wrong taking your pets there.

Susan P.

The staff are amazing and I trust them with my pups completely. You know it's a great vet office when the dogs get excited when we pull up lol.

Shannon P.

We met a new vet on an emergency basis yesterday. Dr. Kiley Mettendorf. Under other circumstances it would have been an excellent experience. She was compassionate and knowledgeable. Our 13 yo Patches is heading for the Rainbow Bridge. She's our Grey and Blonde longhair we get lion haircuts on in the summer. This is a sad 😥 time. Cari said probably tomorrow. She has 2 growths deep in her throat not recommended for removal at this stage. An appetite stimulate doesn't help. She's starving and we stopped force feeding her today. She fights it and doesn't keep it down. The Predisone doesn't help. She's isolating and struggling to breath. Central Animal Hospital will help us with their compassion.
