Things have changed so much since Dr. Lepley passed. This is not the same care as it once was, now with Sharon gone also we have decided to find another place to bring our animals. Sad we have been dedicated to Howard City Animals hospital for over 12 years now to leave cause new management staff has lost that magic that mad it work, its all about the buck now not the animals.

After Dr. Lepley passed away, his practice went down hill. A couple of the staff are rude and curt. Prices went up, you never get the same vet when you go in, they don't offer Care Credit, and record-keeping is unorganized. Also, they lost my dog's entire history (after he died) and never notified me or apologized! Time to find another vet!

What some people complain about is that this place is busy and that the costs have gone up. For one thing, they do charge the same price for the office visits, but; as for major surgery they are much more affordable. We had one lab that needed her eye with tumor removed. The cost was over $100.00 cheaper and they were very gentle with her. In January we had to have her older brother put to sleep. His legs and back gave out and we realized it was cruel to let him suffer any longer. They gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye and also, Jack was very relaxed. He showed no distress while the medication took affect. The cost was cheaper also, and the staff was outstanding in their compassion.

Not the same. Prices are up. Rushed appointments. Different vet each time. No longer worth the long trip. Things have changed. Apparently not for the better.

Feel like appointments are rushed. Confused atmosphere. Costs are now higher and not much different than other less hectic facilities. No longer worth the extra drive for us. You get a different vet each visit it seems like.
Yes indeed

We have had Dr. Lepley take care of our animals for 33 years and I really don't know what we will do without him. He will be missed by animal lovers all over West Michigan. We lived in Texas and Florida for a few years and we had problems with other veterinarians. They inflated their bills and ordered unnessary tests. Doc tested when he needed to but he knew his animals and could diagnose problems quickley. There was only one time in all those years that he was stumped but he spent two days investigating the problem and came up with the right solution. He was and always will be the best. My prayers to his family and to his coworkers, I know they'll miss him terribly.

For all that has not heard We have just lost one of the best vet in the whole wide world. Dr. Edward Lepley had passed away from cancer that he just found out about and the cancer had spread quickley. Prayer out to his Family and staff.... R.I.P.

I have take my pets to Dr Leppley for years.
I would not take them anywhere else. As far as not
doing payment plans like the last review complained about,
how would you feel if your employer asked to pay you your
paycheck in payments? That is what you are expecting them
to do!!!! They are awesome!

I called this vet today and told them that my dog was very bad off and he was going to die if i didnt get him help. I wanted them to work with me on some kind of payment plan but they said no. I am poor but i love my dog and just wanted to get him help. Isnt this what they are getting paid for? Isnt this why they took this job, to help animals? Thanks...my dog died.

friendly and efficient! have always had a positive experience. the only downside i can think of is that, due to the great service and care, they are really popular and sometimes quite busy.

Hands down best vet we have ever worked with. Fast and friendly service. Prices are unbeatable. He has worked on both my cats for various reasons and has never ran tests I thought were unneccisary or provided excessive services, which is an experience I had frequently in the past. Would not reccomend anyone else.

I switched from another local vet that I had been going to for YEARS. I had heard many good things about Dr. Lepley but had no reason to switch or so I thought. He is the best, kindest and most knowledgeable vet that I have had the joy to come in contact with. He knows what he's talking about can diagnose your animal but to be sure has tests run and is 100% on the nose with what he said it would be. The cost of his tests are considerably lower than any other vet around. I did my homework before I went there and his costs are approximately 30 to 50 % lower than anyone around, BONUS! His office people are very nice and helpful and the facility is comfortable with a huge waiting area. I regret not switching sooner to him but believe me I will not be leaving him as long as his pratice remains! Well worth the drive for ANYONE that has an animal they love. If you just care about your pet then any other vet is for you.

Dr. Lepley and the wonderful staff at the Howard City Animal Hospital are one of just a few things that we miss after having moved from Michigan to North Carolina. He is kind, compassionate and very intelligent. He always has time to explain options and is available when needed. After one of our dogs had surgery, he personally drove from his home on the weekend to check on him. He gave no promises that our dog would keep his leg after having been mangled by a collision with a car, but our Tucker is now 8 years old and still going strong on all four. His services are reasonable priced and the staff is warm and inviting.

This is the best they come! They saved my dog when another vet told me there was no real hope for her. They treated her and me with loving care. They are very thorough and have great knowledge. They are fully equipped to take care of any situation. They made themselves availible by phone 24 Hr. a day.She was well on her way to total recovery within 3 days.:-) and is a very healthy happy girl to this day. They also are very reasonably priced. They are the only Vet I will ever use. Thank You all at Howard City Animal Hospital.

I would drive 100 miles to get to this great place, they love my animals as much as i do. I have been going to Dr. Lipply & his great & Careing staff for 11 years and like i said I would defentily drive over and beyond 100 miles to go to this Vet. I drive over 40 minutes since i have moved & would never go to another Vet in the area. My Mother summed this place up w/ a few words " They are all Angles @ this place." Very careing & Loveing.......

This animal hospital is the best. They are always ready to adjust their schedule to accomodate in an emergency. They provide the most thorough and loving care for your pets in their time of need.
