Words cannot describe how amazing of a Vet Dr. Barta is. I have a litter of puppies who got pneumonia and were going downhill fast. I took them to 4 different Vets in Tulsa, OK including an ER Vet, spent about $2000 and found no relief for my puppies, they were getting worse at a rapid rate. A woman recommended Dr. Barta to me and said that he would be able to save my puppies. So, I made the drive from Tulsa to Independence Kansas where Dr. Barta saw my puppies. Not only did he provide outstanding care for my puppies, but he genuinely cared, and it was apparent to me that this Vet is one you don't come across often. Veterinarians as extraordinary as this Dr are few and far between. He not only has helped my puppies, but he did so at a price that was significantly lower than any of my local Vets. I highly recommend him!
