★★★★★ My babies were boarded at animal Care Center for a week. I was well informed about their care and they were clean and happy when I picked them upJamie F.Jamie F. ★★★★★ I love this place. They take great care of my dog. The staff is super friendly and helpful.Kristen H.Kristen H. ★★★★★ They are great ez to get in and work withBruce C.Bruce C. ★★★★★ We had to make the difficult decision to put our lovely Stella Grace to sleep. She was very ill and we could not let her suffer. I made the appointment in the morning and took her in that afternoon. When we were taken to the room it was set up with a blanket for her to be placed on, the lights were dimed and soft music was playing. We were offered water and made comfortable. Everyone spoke softly and the paperwork was handled with great care. When the procedure was over and we were comfortable leaving we were able to exit through a side door and did not need to go through the lobby.Stella Grace had the best of care during her life and was gently handled to the very end.Shirley B.Shirley B. ★★★★★ I’ve had pets my whole life and moved around a bunch, and ACC is the best vet I’ve ever gone to. My cat can be very difficult at the vet, but everyone there is so patient with her and can handle anything she throws at them. The staff is amazing and the care is even better.Jenny Lynn W.Jenny Lynn W. ★★★★★ Can’t say enough good things about this vet. They are not my normal vet as mine was closed today (Saturday). But my dog hurt his leg so I called them and they took him in right away. The receptionist was very nice and helpful over the phone.The veterinarian and vet techs were very knowledgeable and super sweet.They also have fair pricing. As an emergency last minute visit, full head to toe evaluation and evaluation of his hurt leg and 3 prescriptions I was very happy that it did not break the bank.So glad I found them as a back up vet!Thank you all for taking my baby in at such late notice.Brianna B.Brianna B. ★★★★★ Animal Care Center is the BEST! I have three Dachshunds who are NOT dogs but who are part of our family. I am VERY picky where I take them for their medical needs as well as for boarding. EVERY person that works at Animal Care Center in Hammond is SO nice, and my dogs love everyone there. I can't tell you how nice it is to have people that love my dogs taking care of them for their medical needs as well as when I have to go out of town. I don't think anyone is as picky as me when it comes to their pets, so trust me when I say you can trust Animal Care Center with your fur babies.Helen D.Helen D. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff are always so kind and accommodating! Very appreciative of their care and knowledge!Emily B.Emily B. ★★★★★ Caring and efficientGeorge H.George H. ★★★★★ I recently just moved back to Hammond with a pair of Great Danes and our female was pregnant. We were in need of a new vet in the area & heard about Animal Care Center through a friend. Candice was very informative and instrumental in helping us get our appointment set up, online forms filled out & making sure we covered all our bases prior to arrival. Momma & puppies received great treatment from the the staff @ ACC and I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a vetinarian in the area.

They treat your pet like their own.Leslie F.Leslie F. ★★★★★ My sweet girl has had all kinds of issues with GI disease and an auto immune disease. Dr. Tamor has been there for her every step of the way. She always comes in with a smile on her face and explains everything to me. She has great bedside manner. I love that she’s the one who calls me instead of having anyone just call to give me results or to talk to me about my girl. Can’t forget our other favorite, Kayla! She goes above and beyond for my baby when she has to go for a visit. Whether she’s talking me off the ledge from thinking somethings wrong, to sending pics of my girl, she’s truly the best! It makes it so much easier to drop her off or bring her in knowing she has wonderful people taking care of her and spoiling her with lovins! It’s nice knowing that they really love my baby and aren’t just trying to see how much money they can get out of me.See photo of Audrey leaving the vet the other day. She had her bloodwork done and a bath. She’s a happy girl!Brandi SBrandi S ★★★★★ Awesome vets and Alexis Gomez always gets my medicine very quickly and is very nice.grant P.grant P. ★★★★★ Hello, I just wanted to give a shoutout to this care facility.

We recommend Animal Care Center due to the trust they’ve earned from us after taking care of our fur babies for years. Their knowledge and guidance are always appreciated.

Everyone there are so nice and friendly. They take extra care of every animal that comes in and makes you feel welcomed. We would recommend them to anyone who loves their animals like we do.

Jennifer G.

I use both Animal Care Center & Pet Care Center for my 3 pets. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. I am always confident in the care and I am provided. Every staff member gives me the feeling that myself and my pets are family. The doctors are extremely relatable and professional. I can’t express how much they have done for my fur babies. My dog, Letti, had to have emergency surgery after eating a volleyball, and I was extremely worried. The staff reassured me that she would be okay and they would take great care of her. She had to stay several days and made a full recovery. We still have to keep an eye on her but I know if we came to a similar complication, I would bring her right back to ACC/PCC and their very competent veterinarians and staff.

Tyler S.

This is the best place I have ever taken my pets… The entire team at both the Animal Care and Pet Care Center are professional, caring and extremely skilled at what they do. Never in my life have I met such wonderful people and appreciated what they do for me and my pets. I would recommend this team to anyone!

Janet P.

Phenomenal service from front desk staff, vet techs, and Dr. Laverne! Brought one of my boys in as an emergency because we thought he was bit by a snake. Was informed the doctors were in a meeting as they had just opened; and they’d assess him ASAP and they did! Dr. Laverne called me every step of the way and kept me informed the whole time. The techs were amazing and SO patient with my boy when we were leaving. They knew he was in so much pain, and they both said we will wait with him as long as it takes; and they sat in the hot sun in the parking lot until he was ready to get in my car. Every one of you ladies are rockstars, and I thank you ALL for taking amazing care of my Chevy boy! Chev thanks you guys too!
