Finding the Right Doctor by
When I first moved into the Des Moines area 17 years ago, one of my first priorities was to find a good veterinary match for me and my dog, Sadie. As I was driving around the south end of town, I noticed the sign. Later, I called and asked if I could come by with my black lab, and the receptionist was exceedingly friendly and told me to come over when I could. When I arrived, I was met by Dr. Flaming, and she was so friendly, and she connected great with Sadie. She answered all of my questions, treated me like a person, and not just a patient. I felt instantly at home at the clinic.Years later, when it came to be the time to put my sweet Sadie down, it was Dr. Flaming who did it, and she did it in a way that was so respectful, I could not imagine a better way to send off a good friend. A short while after, I adopted a kitten from the clinic, and it is thanks to Dr. Flaming's recommendation that I now have my Gabe.I would not hesitate to recommend the SDMVC to any and everyone I meet.

Molly's parents -
As the new owners of a very sick little Westie, we named Molly, we had no choice but to find a vet ASAP to save our puppies life.We had noticed the building while driving down SW9th Street so we called there. Dr. Flamming immediately got on the phone once I explained to the very nice and knowledgeable receptionist what was happening with our new puppy.We immediately took Molly to see Dr. Flamming and she informed us we had a very sick little puppy and she was very empathetic and obviously dedicated to us and our pet. We loved her and the staff right away! That was three years ago and Molly is thriving and still. sees Dr. Flamming, gets groomed there at the center and boarded when we leave town. This is the only place we would ever take our precious Molly. We love South Des Moines Vet Center and have/would recommend it to every pet owner we know!
