We love to hear from our wonderful clients, here is what some have to say about their experience at Ellenton Animal Hospital.

Dr Walstad & Staff, Thank you for taking such good care of Muffin and Boots and seeing them through bladder stone surgery. They are both doing great and I feel like I have two “new” dogs. They act completely different and are so much better now that they are not suffering in pain. They even like the new prescription dog food & carrots for treats! Thank you again for helping us help our dogs. The Hestan Family

Dear Dr. Dana. (and Staff), Just a note to thank you for  starting my cat, Rocky, on sub fluids after is diagnosis of kidney failure in January. I’m so glad I brought him into your office, because even though he will never be totally well again, he is doing so good that I just had to drop you a line! He has now become the hit of the community for every morning and evening, he walks with me, on a leash! He enjoys it so much and I believe has enhanced his quality of life. He took after a rabbit one morning, and if I hadn’t a good hold on his leash, he would have been gone! He’s too funny, and thanks to you, he is still with us. Thank you, again Barb Vassar and Rocky p.s. Thanks for helping our brother; Barney, Mr Twixt, Baby, Gussy and Sweetums!!

Thank you all for giving Oscar such good care over the past 10 years – Olga & Ron Labranche

Dear Doctors and Staff of Ellenton Animal Clinic –  I thank you and Ruby thanks you for the care you took of her this week. Thank you Dr. S. for doing such a wonderful job on the surgery and for making everything so easy for a non-medical person to understand.   We are so happy to have Ruby home again. She looks lie  ( and acts like) a 7-year-old dog. Fondly, Charlotte Parker Ruby’s “mom”

To the entire staff of Ellenton Animal Clinic; From the time I first entered your clinic, Eddie and I were always treated with kindness, integrity and respect. Drs Dana and Susanne have chosen their staff wisely. The attitudes of respect, sympathy and dignity that all of you displayed could not be matched. To euthanize Eddie was the like losing a family member, and one of the most difficult decision I have every had to make. He was a pheasant dog and unmatched when he was hunting. His picture will be on my front license plate. With all my respect and thanks. Bill Michael and Eddie

Dear Dr. Dana and Staff: Just a note to thank you and your staff for taking such good care of Kippy these past few years. Dick and I really appreciate your professionalism in handling his passing. Sincerely, Dick and Barbara Kipphorn

Staff at Ellenton Animal Hospital – I want to thank you all for your kindness and expertise. I am happy to report that after the third cycle of anti-bodies my kitty, Rascal’s forehead has finally healed. At age 15, he’s getting to old and tired to endure surgery. Thank you, thank you, thank you…from us both. Sherri Reaume

Dear Drs Walstad and Sullivan and staff – Thank you all for your kindness and efforts to help Woody. Sincerely, Nancy and Gary Adams

Dear Dr. Dana, We want to thank you for all you have done for Tessie and for us. We appreciate all the time you spent talking with me and explaining it all. You showed me how much you really care. It meant so much. It was a hard decision to put her down, but it was the right one. Thanks again for all you did for Tessie. May God bless you. Brice and Tricia Hoopingarner

Dear Dana S. Walstad, Thank you very much for helping support my steer project and I this year. Chip made it into the fair this year at 1080 pounds and .28 inches of body-fat. We did very well in the shows, he received 2nd in his class and I won showmanship with him. Ever since I bought him last year he has been very well tempered. I plan to continue with a steer project for years to come and it’s thanks to people like you who enable this to happen. I hope to see you at the fair next year! With thanks, Cara Zeveney

Dear Dr. Walstad and the staff at Ellenton Animal Hospital, Thank you so much for everything this past year! It has been a very big year raising my steer but everyone has been incredibly helpful, positive and encouraging toward me in achieving this. Thank you for everything! This has been such a rewarding experience for me that could never have happened without the support of Ellenton Animal Hospital throughout the year. Thank you for your generous donation of the add-on to my sum for selling Gatsby, and the opportunity to try something new without negative repercussions. Again, thank you! Sincerely, Emily Melchior
