I first came to Countrycare with my female German Shepherd, Fina, who had been diagnosed with pancreatitis. I had left my previous vet's office with a bag full of pills, expensive cans of dog food and not much hope about Fina's future quality of life. I found Countrycare on the Holistic Veterinarian website. When I arrived at Countrycare I was treated with respect. Dr. Strickfaden listened to me and instead of handing me more pills she explained the various treatments that were available. I chose the Bicom treatments for Fina and within several weeks Fina was on the road to recovery. I now bring all my dogs to Countrycare for all their needs and for boarding. From the people who greet you at the front desk, to the technicians and the vets, everyone is very friendly, caring and professional. I wouldn't dream of taking my dogs to any other animal hospital.
We love Countrycare because of the sense of caring & concern we feel the minute we walk in the door. Our English cockers have been patients at Countrycare for about 11 years. The acupuncture that was administered to Bubba for his disc issues added 6 years of quality to his life. When he passed in 2006 Doctor Karen was there with us to share our loss. Our latest concerns are with Shore and her kidney failure and Mickey's battle with Addison's disease. Again doctor Karen never gave up until she was able to properly diagnose Mickey's condition and devise the proper treatment plan. The support staff at Countrycare is always more than willing to address our many concerns. It is comforting to know they will be there when we need them. For us Countrycare is well worth the 30 min. drive from Two Rivers.
My cat, Ms Stray Kitty, suddenly got sick & I had to take her to the Vet Emergency Room (VER). When they closed the next morning, I had to take her elsewhere. The VER recommended Packerland Vet & I'm glad they did. Everyone at PVC is so very nice & I can tell they really like animals. My husband & I visited Stray Kitty several times & we felt welcomed. Stray Kitty is much improved, she looks better, she's more alert, she's eating. I can tell that the staff pets her & talks to her & looks at her, as several of them have told me what they noticed. I think this is a very good place to bring animals, both for regular & emergency-type care. Ms Stray Kitty gives it 4 paws up!
We highly recommend Packerland Vet Center. My husband and I have been taking our 2 Golden Retrievers (liter mates) there. Whiskey has had 2 ACL surgeries done by Dr. Dunbar and he did a fantastic job. We just had to have our other Golden Hunter have 1 ACL surgery and that turned out great also. Hunter will be going in for his 2nd ACL surgery and we put our trust once again in Dr Dunbar. Your kindness and caring really does mean alot to us. If anyone needs caring and great care for your loved animals, we highly recommend Packerland Vet. Center. Thanks to all the Dr.s and staff for all you do. Bill and Vicky
My husky recently had surgery at your facility while I was mobilized for the Navy Reserve. The care and information I personally received prior to my mobilization assured me that my pet would receive the best care in my absence and made me feel so much better about not being there. My family had very little to worry about due to the professionalism and level of communication provided during the surgery and during the after care. I do not believe I would have been as reassured going anywhere else! Thank you Countrycare for your personalized, friendly and highly professional service!!!
Fantastic grooming services! We took our puppy to a local pet store chain and they wanted to shave her down to the skin (body, legs, even her ears!) due to "horrible" matting. Plus they couldn't get her to sit still for even a bath and told us she was going to have to be sedated for grooming. Packerland grooming trimmed her down (yes - she's short, but not even close to being shaved!) and she didn't even need a doggie downer pill. Amazing results!! And the price was lower than what the chain store would've charged.
Dr. Neil... what can I say but thank you. Our dog, Frankie was special, never like other dogs. He could not jump on the sofa and was frequently in pain due to his issues. Dr. Neil was caring, compassionate and honest throughout Frankie's entire life. He worked with us regarding his medicine therapies to best suit our little man and keep him out of the chronic pain he suffered. Neil listened. If you have any pet, especially one with chronic issues, Dr. Neil is the doctor for your fur child.
I have a yellow lab that tore an ACL in her rear leg earlier this year. I was referred to Packerland by my primary vet to them. I met with Dr. Dunbar and we discussed the options. This is the best hunting dog I have ever had and it did not take me long to decide that she needed to have the TPLO surgery options. They did the surgery and I am very happy with the results. My dog is back to her old self and she is ready to chase Pheasants out west this fall. Thank you!
I trust you and truly believe you are looking out for our pets' best interests. On a scale of 1 to 10, you are off the charts. Everyone at Countrycare shows genuine compassion and concern for the pets and the owners. During the last 9 years we have brought seven of our pets to Countrycare, and the care they have received has always been top notch. Your motto is "modern veterinary medicine with old-fashioned caring!" and you truly practice it day to day.
Sophie received excellent treatment, love and care for a foreign body removal surgery at Countrycare. I thought when I took her back to get her stitches out she might not want to go but she ran right in and was happy to see everyone. I can't say enough to express my gratitude to Dr. Barr, Dr. Strickfaden and the staff at Countrycare for saving Sophie's life. Every day we watch her run around and play and are so grateful she is still with us.
