See what the Vogel Veterinary Hospital family has to say about us.

Absolutely the best! Dr. Shelton is the most skilled, compassionate, and knowledgeable veterinarian I have come accross in over 30 years of being a pet parent. He has went above and beyond regarding a couple of dire situations with two of our pets, both with the best possible outcomes. We have been taking our dogs and our cats to him for about three years now and would take them to no one else.

- Ron Angleton, Vogel Veterinary Hospital Client

I have been taking my animals to Vogel for a couple of years now after having some bad experiences elsewhere. I absolutely love the staff here. They have always gone well beyond the extra mile to be friendly and helpful. I won't trust the care of my chihuahuas to just anyone but I know they are in the best of hands at Vogel. Can't recommend them enough!

- Jill Vincent, Vogel Veterinary Hospital Client

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Shelton and his staff. The care and attention they have given our beloved family member is second to none. For such a busy hospital they take the time to make sure you know what's going on and what needs to be done. I couldn't be happier and wouldn't consider taking Keaton anywhere else.
