Our Facility

We are the largest 24 hour emergency and referral center in the greater Des Moines area. Our newly remodeled, nearly 10,000 sq. ft. facility is centrally located and easy to get to from anywhere in the metro (just off of I-35/I-80 on Merle Hay Rd). There are several restaurants and hotels nearby if you have traveled from some distance and are waiting while your pet is being cared for.


Waiting room

Our large waiting room features several comfortable couches and chairs, two flat screen televisions, free Wi-Fi access, complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottled water and soda. Our goal is to make what can be a very stressful time for you and your pet as comfortable as possible for both of you.
