I took my puppy here for the first time yesterday -- the staff is fantastic. Everyone was incredibly friendly and beyond helpful. They scheduled me in for a last minute visit and were so accommodating. One of the vets called later that day to check on my pup (who wasn't feeling well). If you are looking for a new vet for your pup, I would highly recommend. This is the first review I've ever posted -- but Kalvig & Shorter deserves it!!

Dr. Shorter, Kalvig and team are the most amazing vets and people whom I’ve trusted to care for my dogs over the past 20+ years. They are excellent clinicians and people and when something is out of their realm of expertise they are comfortable advising to others who are more specialized. I’ve had an English bulldog and 2 frenchies which are not always easy to manage health issues. I would recommend them to anyone!

Dr Kalvig has been our vet for over 20 years. She's very profession and caring + nice to me + my dogs. The offices are clean + nice + I even board my dogs there when I travel. Her staff are so nice to my dogs when I'm away that I almost feel no guilt in leaving them.
