We're happy to welcome board certified surgeon Dr. Brent Reimer DVM, DACVS to our surgery department.
Welcome to the Iowa Veterinary Referral Center. We are a specialty referral and 24 hour veterinary emergency and critical care hospital located in Des Moines, IA. We are not a general practice. We are here to provide adjunctive medical services to your family veterinarians in Polk and surrounding counties as well as throughout the state of Iowa.
When your pet has a serious medical emergency or surgical condition, your family veterinarian may refer you to our
team of highly trained specialists for additional care. We work with your family veterinarian to ensure
that your pet receives the highest level of care. Our specialists are trained to use the most recent
methods, state-of-the-art equipment, as well as traditional techniques to diagnose and treat your pet.
Emergencies can happen anytime. When they do, our staff of highly trained emergency veterinarians and technical staff are here for you and your pet 24 hours, 7 days a week. We know that emergency situations are very upsetting and stressful. We communicate with you every step of the way to keep you informed of your pet's condition. We also stay in close communication with your family veterinarian during your pet's stay with us.
Our mission is simple: to work with you and your family veterinarian to provide your pet with compassion and the highest standard of care.
