Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Hughes and his staff are great! They are always very friendly and take loving care with my four dogs, even the one who we have to muzzle-just in case. Dr. Hughes saved my Rosalie, a very tiny Chihuahua, that we had only had for one week that had Parvo. We were able to get daily updates on her and let us come by and see her. Now at age nine, she’s doing great! I would not take my babies to anyone else!🐾"
    Kim Gray
  • "Polk Veterinary Care has been taking care of all my fur babies for over 20 years now. I can always count on the experienced staff to, not just answer all my questions, but even my silly questions as well. A few weeks ago one of my fur babies went to doggy heaven and I received a sympathy card from the staff. How awesome was that! Thank you, Dr. Hughes, Sherry, and Beth for all you do!"
    Paula Crocker
