The Oaks Surpasses All Expectations
We came to The Oaks after several years of bouncing around to other vets within the Des Moines metro. We were referred by other rabitt owners for their extensive knowledge of rabitts and chinchillas since we have a small zoo here and one of our babies always seems to need good vet care. The Oaks has handled all of our emergencies expertly, from rabitt bladder stones (surgery under $100 and complete recovery), to a severe care of bot fly infestation in two rescued rabitts, to ongoing chinchilla teeth grinding for malocclusion ($30-40 every couple of months), to long term care of a bunny with a paralyzed hip. They helped us to care for our paralyzed bunny for years and were extremely patient with us and unbeliveably kind to our bunny. My Mom also took her cat to them for years as well, until she passed away last year at 28 years old! (not a typo - I thought she might outlive us all) The Oaks says our household is known for the longevity of our pets - but we are positive that our pets are healthy and happy for so long because of the excellent vet care we get there. There may be bigger, more fancy vet offices around town, but where is your money going in those offices? We'd much rather pay for expert care from people who obviously love animals, than office decor or a prime location. Don't your pets deserve the best too?
