Long-2-Bonding-PhotoAt Ingersoll Animal Hospital we know first-hand that pets enrich the quality of our lives. Because of this, we work hard to improve the health, happiness, and longevity of our treasured pets by providing the very best veterinary care available in the Des Moines area. The more we invest into the care of our furry friends, the more we’ll reap the benefits of their unconditional love and unwavering loyalty in our lives. That’s what it’s all about!

We know a thing or two about veterinary care – we’ve been doing it since 1979! We also know that all the experience in the world, however, cannot replace the most important component of the care we provide – a personal touch and individual attention. We believe that when we place the focus on what’s most important – you and your pet – everything else will just naturally fall into place. The better the service, the better the care. That’s our promise to you, your pet, and to ourselves.

We are a full service small animal veterinary hospital specializing in providing the best possible medical, surgical, diagnostic and dental care to the dogs, cats, rabbits and pocket pets of the Des Moines area. We are proud to be an AAHA accredited hospital, a designation that we feel demonstrates our commitment to always providing the highest level of care and service. We offer a broad range of comprehensive services, from routine wellness care to life saving critical care. We  even offer boarding and grooming to provide you and your pet with a more complete package.

Beyond our services and treatment options, we are a practice that is committed to providing the best possible care to each and every patient we see. We try to personalize our care as much as we can because we recognize that each pet is unique and each relationship valuable. We want to get to know you and your furry friend by name and learn as much about you both as possible. Whether it’s a warm greeting, a cozy blanket, an extra belly rub or a few more tasty treats, our goal is for you and your loved one to feel as comfortable with us as you would be with family.

Ingersoll Animal Hospital also holds the designation of being a Cat Friendly Practice. This standard lets you know that we understand the unique and special needs of our feline friends. Our vets and support staff know that cats are not small dogs. These exceptional creatures require a gentle touch from someone that knows how to calm and reassure them. We have worked hard to create an environment within our clinic that is less threatening to cats and meets their unique needs.

As a Cat Friendly Practice, we are committed to learning how to make vet visits more pleasant and less stressful for your cat and to help you learn ways that you can contribute as well. We also value the role you play in managing your cat’s health care plan and will make every effort to help you understand your kitty’s needs and what you can do at home to ensure that those needs are always met.
