★★★★★ I have brought my animals here for 17 years. Always great care and wonderful staff.Brian C.Brian C. ★★★★★ For several years, we used Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic for our cat, Jack. Dr. Jamie Bunn was Jack's vet and provided the most compassionate and professional care to Jack. When Jack's body could no longer function adequately, we made the incredibly tough decision to have him euthanized. Dr. Bunn could not have been more gentle to Jack and graceful with my with and me through and following that procedure.We now have a new Bernadoodle puppy and Dr Kealie Mancino is Bailey's Vet. Dr Mancino is every bit the caring and knowledgeable vet that Dr Bunn is and we could not be happier!Oh, and the staff is also excellent!Lynn M.Lynn M. ★★★★★ These folks were amazing. I brought in my beloved pet with a sudden illness and they welcomed me in despite a busy, busy schedule. Dr. Kelsie was incredible, talent like her deserves a significant raise. She took the time to consider options, discuss them, research them, confer with colleagues...I wish I had a human doctor that took that amount of care and time with me. These people are excellent; dedicated, passionate and professional. Thank you thank you thank you.Bryan F.Bryan F. ★★★★★ Dr. Bunn always takes the time to answer my questions.

It was easy to get scheduled and get my cat in to get looked at.I was impressed by the vets knowledge, and the care that my pet was given. Instinctually I just felt like I was at the right place for help, something I hadn’t felt elsewhere. Friendly environment even just waiting to be seen.We had been struggling to get my cat help that would get her healthy again for months, and after the vets did so much for my cat and sent us home with a game plan to get her better, I can happily say that after just ONE day, Nova has seen a complete turnaround. I’m ecstatic after being so depressed over my girl being sick, and in shock that she’s already so much better! Money well spent and I feel at ease knowing that if anything happens in the future I know just where to go.CelthorCelthor ★★★★★ We love Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic!

They really care and love your pets.Linda H.Linda H. ★★★★★ The folks at the Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic are wonderful and highly-talented. Dr. Bunn is first class all that way. I just wish they still did de-clawing so we do not have to take our cats to another Veterinary clinic.All animal care is expensive, but what is the option? A low-bid Veterinarian to care for an animal that is 100% dependent on its owner to do the right thing for it? Not in our home. Price is not the issue, but rather value is. We think the Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic is a good value.Tom C.Tom C. ★★★★★ I could not be happier with the care and attention my doggies and I received at the Waukee/Clive Veterinary Clinic!

I'm pretty sure you are going to ask me if I recommend Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic. Of course, I would recommend it 100%, no doubt about it. Thank you, Stuff, for doing what you do with our babies.Ian R.Ian R. ★★★★★ The staff and veterinarians are all very kind, understanding and helpful! Husker was very nervous walking in, but as soon as the vet welcomed him (and gave him some cheese) he was also very comfortable. The clinic also has a small park for pets to relieve themselves prior to (or after) their visit which is incredibly convenient and much appreciated! I'm glad I have found a place where my pup will be taken care of!Madison W.Madison W. ★★★★★ The entire process and staff made everything very easy and enjoyable!

Very knowledgeable, the most current medical methodologies and technologies along with excellent customer service.Colleen H.Colleen H. ★★★★★ My husband and I moved to Des Moines from Minnesota with our two dogs this past Summer. We needed to find a new vet and inquired on our neighborhood Facebook page for recommendations. Over twenty families replied quickly and without hesitation to go to Waukee-Clive Vet Clinic. I never thought I would find a Vet Clinic that I loved more than our old clinic but I did!! Dr. Holly and her tech were excellent!! They took their time getting to know my rescue dog who was adopted with anxiety issues. Dr. Holly quickly figured out how to approach my pet to decrease her fears and made the visit a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend this office!Elaine C.Elaine C. ★★★★★ We want to give thanks to your clinic for being their during this traumatic time in our life. We lost our lil boy Cooper this morning, he was hit and killed. My daughter Rachel found him and notified us. She took him to your clinic and we experienced nothing but kindness from you. Dr. Bunn thank you for being so understanding and allowing us to do the next step after loss in your clinic, especially as not being a client. Kelley, the technician, thank you and Dr. Rachel Olesen for fulfilling our wishes above and beyond our expectations. You are all the best at what you do and appreciated so much. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jerry and Pat BissenPat B.Pat B. ★★★★★ Very helpful and polite and offered a discount for her first physical after adopting from shelter!Brigitte S.Brigitte S. ★★★★★ This clinic and staff has been exceptional to our family. Our 18 year old cat was a client here and more frequently towards her final days. The staff took great care of our cat, as well as us. I never felt rushed through appointments and they answered all my questions and phone calls. Their dedication to the care of the family speaks loud. Their condolences to our loss was heartfelt and I greatly appreciated everything they did for us and our elderly cat with kidney failure.Karey A.Karey A. ★★★★★ They are all great, they remember their animal and human clients and always take great care of our dog. They are always willing to answer questions and explain why behind any treatment to make sure you are comfortable and understand. Great vets and staff!james van G.james van G. ★★★★★ Well there is a lot to say here. But dealing with the loss of our puppy has been extremely difficult on my wife and I. The staff at Waukee-Clive Veterinary Clinic have been nothing less then spectacular. From the moment we brought him in for his wellness check up they made sure to review, discuss, and address every one of our concerns. Followed up by his two trips back after he began to have health issues, they continued to keep us updated and aware of what they were doing and why they were doing it. Both of the doctors that worked with Teddy didn’t treat him like a patient—they treated him with care and love all the way up to his last moments. We truly appreciate everything the staff did for us through this very difficult time. They even went as far as to follow up with us after it was all over to check on our well being. Couldn’t have chosen a better clinic to trust with the well-being of our furry family membersCory S.Cory S. ★★★★★ We adopted a new puppy about a year ago, after several years of being without a dog. We had several concerns the first few days and called to see if we could bring him in. We got in that day and we’re impressed with the care and attention they gave us and our pup. Through the first year of vaccination and check ups everything was professional and extremely friendly. The ease of scheduling and reminders was so helpful and we have been blessed to have Dr. Mancini assigned as our “ personnel” Vet. She is so prepared and good with him and answers all of our questions like we are her only appointment for the day. We leave feeling like she has taken a personal liking to our pup. Everyone from the front desk to the Techs seem very professional and efficient. They recently hosted an open house and a tour of the facilities which was not only fun but an impressive display of technology. Happy to see this just before our pup was neutered and Dr. Mancini also performed the operation. If you want to get the best care for your pet, this is the place.Greg F.Greg F. ★★★★★ The Waukee-Clive Vet Clinic has always been 5-star. From regular checkups to emergencies they always show how much they care for Wrigley!!Troy O.Troy O. ★★★★★ We've been there several times since we got our F1B Mini Goldendoodle for her shots and it's been a good experience so far. Dr. Bunn is a nice guy and seems like he knows what he's talking about - the vet techs have been friendly and helpful as well.Jason B.Jason B. ★★★★★ The staff are helpful, friendly and professional. We’ve been taking Daisy there for about 3 years, all the doctors are great with her.Ellen M.Ellen M. ★★★★★ Great people there. Recommended.515 LIVE !515 LIVE ! ★★★★★ Amazing veterinarian clinic.

We moved about a year ago and the clinic immediately felt like home. We had one emergency and they saw our dog right away. When I’ve called for regular appointments we are usually able to get in w/n a day or two. They take time to answer questions, handle my kids antics with ease when they come along, and are always patient. Highly recommend.Jessica B.Jessica B. ★★★★★ This group is excellent. Been coming here for years for both our cat and two dogs, as this whole practice is caring and helpful. We even followed Dr. Holly over from another vet practice in the area, as she has always been great with all of our pets, going above and beyond to show us that they matter to her like they matter to us. Tremendous people and would highly recommend.Michael B.Michael B. ★★★★☆ I wish they open Saturday and Sunday.L JL Jjs_loader

The most caring staff and doctors around. They helped my mom with sending her dog on to a better place when she wasn’t even a patient there. They put their clients and their families first. Wouldn’t take our dog anywhere else! Thank you!

Jessica F.

We absolutely love this vet! We’ve been in twice and I’ve called a couple times when our dogs have been sick and they are so kind. They also get you in quickly. Dr. Bunn takes his time with the dogs and treats them as his own. He’s honest and pointed out things with our dogs that our past vet didn’t even notice. Very happy to be with Waukee Clive Vet Clinic and Dr. Bunn! Highly recommend!

Katie K.

Hands down the best vet clinic! I truly am impressed with them! We couldn’t recommend more highly.

Heidi B.

The staff not only takes outstanding care of my puppy, they take great care of me. They are kind and understanding that this pooch mom worries about her little one. They are knowledgeable and patient. I am always 100% confident that they take the best care of my puppy.

Jackie J.

This place is wonderful! I can’t say enough about the staff and how compassionate they were towards our family after having to make the difficult decision to put our 14 year old Shiba to sleep. They are respectful as well and took the time to go over our options and what to expect. They also called multiple times to check on our family. They continue to provide our other two dogs with excellent care. I would highly recommend choosing them for all your pets needs.
