Paws-itive Comments from Pet Owners

From a Grateful Dog Mom

Dr. Nilsson at Dakota Pet Care is the BEST vet in the area!!  We have been taking our dogs to her for years. She provides top care with top-of-the-line equipment. We have had many emergencies where she has dropped everything to save our dogs. She will go above and beyond for your pets with her knowledge, experience and expertise. We always know when we go to Dakota Pet Care that our pets are treated and loved like their own.

Helpful and Knowledgable Staff

I cannot say enough good things about Dakota Pet Care. The veterinarians are incredibly awesome at what they do and have so much knowledge and care for each patient. They are always willing to work with you to make sure your pet gets the best care and treatment. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable as well. The building and location are great too.

The Best of Care

Wonderful clinic with beautiful facilities. I have complete faith my two “boys” (a Pom and a Poodle) will get the best of care. Dr. Nilsson is very patient and knowledgeable!
