Best veterinary practice I have ever used. I still make a point of scheduling my appointments with them when I am up visiting family even though my current home is 2 hrs away. They are at least $50 cheaper/animal for annual check-ups and all the staff are friendly and professional. Dr. Rummel and Dr. Bonsell are both very qualified veterinarians. We owe Dr. Rummel a great debt of gratitude for the compassionate care he gave our dog in his last year of life and the kindness he showed when it was time to put the dog to sleep.

Worst possible experience in dealing with a traumatic experience our dog was recently put down after she had been hit by a car. She was brought in by animal control for a mandatory rabies test since she bit the control officer. Called the vet and at first they had no record of her being brought there. Than went on to tell me in detail what they had to do for the rabies test. Few weeks later they called to tell us someone else's dogs ashes were ready to be picked up. We in turn showed up and my husband informed them of the phone call and the screw up of dogs names. Not only did they not apologize but they than turned around and asked him if he was picking up this other dog as well. They made an extremely traumatic situation even more traumatic. I don't know anything about the vets but I do know from the experience with the office staff would never entrust my other animals with them!!

I have been going to Howes Cave for many years.Dr. Bonsell and Rummel are 1st rate.

I feel sorry for the retarded dog that Dr. Bonsell identified. I understand retarded dogs and they need love too! My dog is very smart and Dr. Bonsell deals with him just fine..if she can deal so well with the smart dogs...the simple ones like yours are a piece of cake!

Thank you Dr. Bonsell! Finley B the Papillion has the utmost respect for you. Thank you for being instrumental since his birth in caring for him and instructing us to make him such a fine animal.

I would like to say that I have nothing but the utmost respect for Dr. Bonsell. She was nothing less than professional and sympathetic to my situation. We are brand new to this practice. I had a very sick cat and she took the time and care to give a thorough exam and explained all options. Unfortunately, we had to put our beloved cat, Socks, to sleep. We couldn't have done it without Dr. Bonsell. The staff was also empathetic and professional as well during this very difficult time.

I have never had a more compassionate, knowledgable, or honest vet than Dr. David Rummel. "Dr. Dave" goes 110% to help both your animal and you at every stage of life and health. He clearly adores the four-leggers who walk into his office, but is conservative in his protocol -- no million dollar surgeries if something very simple and/or noninvasive might work first. He also is completely respectful of an owner's wishes in terms of their dear one's end-of-life care. I have owned companion animals for decades and definitely seen my share of vets -- there's no one like him. (And anyone who refers to my cats as "little furry gentlemen" is aces in my book.) You can't go wrong with Howes Cave Animal Hospital.

I can't say enough about this practice. The staff are wonderful. They care about your pets but honor your requests to care for your pets the way you want to. They have many meds on site and in a pinch will mail meds to you for a very nominal fee.

Howes Cave Animal Hospital was unlike any other vets office I had used. They were very knowledgeable about the problem that my kitten was facing. They did not pressure me into getting unnecessary tests done and even suggested waiting to see what would happen with a course of medication. They are extremely flexible when making appointments and their prices are cheaper than any I have had in the past! I highly recommend others trying them out; you won't be disappointed!

A friend recommended me to the Howe Caves vet when I moved into the area. After hearing their prices (about 1/2 of my previous vet) I was a bit skeptical of their care. I gave them a try anyway and was very impressed. Since then, I haven't looked back and have recommended quite a few others. Dr. Tiffany Bonsell is my favorite. She is down-to-earth and takes the time to explain things. Their prices on products such as frontline or advantix are actually pretty pricey so i recommend buying these elsewhere.

PROS: price, quick apointment times
CONS: cost of flea products

Everyone is very friendly at this vet office. They can get you an appointment pretty fast, and are very flexible. They are wonderful with all animals, and very reasonable with pricing. They care more about the animal than they do for the money. It's very nice to go somewhere knowing your pet will be taken care of no matter what.
