I have been taking my pets -- dogs, cats and ferrets -- to Taylor Veterinary Hospital for several years and have been more than satisfied with my experiences. Doctors Taylor, Smith and Bixby and their wonderful staff genuinely care for the well-being of your pets. Take your pet here if you want to feel like you're part of a family, yet receive top-notch, professional veterinary care.

We have been taking our pets - cats and dogs - to Taylor Vet for many, many years and would highly recommend their hospital to any animal lover. Dr. Taylor is known as the "cat whisperer" and can handle as well as comfort any cat that needs attention. From the Dr.'s and each of their staff members - you'll be impressed with their knowledge and gentle care for your pets.

Jim Taylor is probably the finest vet around. I went to him for many years from the time he took over from Boxwell who was in the old english tudor complex on the grounds in the 60's and 70's and probably before. Taylor is incredibly, energetic, and always tried to help find cost effective solutions for the strays and cast offs that ended up at my farm. However, his wife stepped in and expected every farm cat to be treated like a show cat and that is just not feasible. Her interference was the reason I had to switch vets. Sometimes the business aspect has to take back seat to the practical aspect of helping animals. Making a trip to the vet to rescue a stray cost hundreds of dollars for no practical reason is not what is best for the animal as people will stop trying to care for that segment of animals leading to more animal suffering. So five stars to Jim. None to the money hungry wife. Overall I have to rate it at least 4 because I can no longer use this vet as awesome as he is.

I highly recommend Taylor Veterinary Hospital. My entire family has used Dr. Taylor as our vet for over 25 years! He has been the vet of choice for a total of 6 dogs and 7 cats over that time span. He is wonderful, as is his entire staff. We are always greeted by name (as our pet's are). I have always felt comfortable calling them for any pet concerns we have had!

Message from Taylor Veterinary Hospital

Passionate People, Exceptional Care We are a full-service hospital serving pets and their families in the greater Cedar Falls/Waterloo metropolitan area. About 90% of our patients are cats and dogs, but we also see a variety of "pocket pets." The doctors also work with the local rescues treating pets awaiting adoption. In addition to providing basic health care (physical examinations, vaccinations, spaying and neutering, X-rays and ultrasound, and 24-hour emergency coverage), surgical services include soft tissue surgery and orthopedic procedures such as knee repair and internal and external fracture repair. Surgical procedures are performed using safe inhalation anesthetics monitored electronically and by surgical assistants, in a modern surgical suite. We offer behavioral consulting to clients whose pets need help fitting into the family or other social situations to which they are exposed. This can often be the difference between a rewarding relationship and a family pet that is put up for adoption due to behavior issues. The newest service we offer is Laser therapy which helps speed healing time and decreases pain for your pet. We use it to help reduce inflammation and pain after surgery, as well as helping decrease the medication needs of pets with arthritis. We include dental evaluations in each annual wellness exam so we can prevent or correct dental problems before they affect your pet's overall health. Dental cleanings are a necessary part of keeping your pet healthy. We have an in-house laboratory for diagnostic blood work, while biopsies and other more specialized tests are sent to various outside reference laboratories around the country. We have a digital x-ray that provides excellent images for our doctors to diagnose issues. We also are able to do ultrasounds to diagnose soft tissue problems as well. We are able to consult with, or refer your pet to, specialists at Iowa State's Veterinary College or other institutions around the country if his or her care would require that. Please call us if you want someone to care for your pet as much as you do!.
