Client Testimonials

Last Saturday was our first time there and our experience was a 5! Everyone was very informative and welcoming! Thank you!

— Carole Lefebvre

Bringing both of our dogs to be cared for, we are extremely pleased with the care they are receiving. Sadie, Willow and I thank you all.

— Sue Lenz

I really appreciated the way the doctors at the clinic cared for Diamond. Over fifteen years of love with my wonderful dog and the quality of regular care she received at the clinic made it possible. I was especially touched by the sympathy card I receive after sadly having to put her to sleep, it shows they really care.

— Darryl Anton

After recently moving to Minnesota we researched many veterinarian options and we chose the Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic. The staff was honest, thorough and genuinely caring. Their follow-up on our pets care was outstanding. Its worth the trip for your pets care.

— The Connors Family - Rich & Amy Maximus, Petie, Buster, Bandit, Shadow, Kodibear & Sammy

We have taken our pets to the Zimmerman Vet Clinic for 20 years. Even when our visit was a sad one, we were treated with kindness and courtesy. The staff has always been professional and friendly. We highly recommend Zimmerman Vet Clinic to anyone who loves their pet.

— Bratsch

The staff at Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic has taken care of my dogs since 1979. I am especially pleased with the care of my last companion/friend, Ruby Mae. She received the best care I could have expected. The staff gave her loving care and attention during her whole lifetime. I cant thank them enough for being there for support. I will continue to use them with my new friend, Baily Sue.

— Sincerely, Dale Cannon

We love Zimmerman Vet! They give the best care & have a wonderful staff!
