★★★★★ The staff is very friendly from the beginning. They are very flexible on getting you in when needed and when you have an emergency. I really have enjoyed going here since moving from the last vet office we were at. Dr. Nowlin loves our two pups and is so patient with them, especially our little one that gets anxious at the vet. Also, very affordable. Definitely would recommend them to anyone!Jordan C.Jordan C. ★★★★★ These people gave us the most caring and compassionate treatment when we had to put our cat down last month. I hope to never go through that again but if I ever have to I will absolutely go to them over anywhere elseBaby D.Baby D. ★★★★★ We have been going to them for several years now and I have never worried about my fur babies! They have always kept me well informed and taken great care of my fur babies! I would suggest them to anyone who is looking for a new vet!Amber K.Amber K. ★★★★★ Excelsior Springs Animal Clinic is the best Veterinary Clinic we have ever used. The vets are all excellent, the technicians are well-trained, they show that they love pets, and the office staff are friendly and helpful. We would recommend them them to anyone. We live in Liberty, but ESAC is worth the quick drive for quality care.When we first went there years ago, a tech diagnosed the problem our puppy had in 3 minutes when she checked him in. We had already spent $200 at our vet, who couldn't figure it out, and $600 at a very popular emergency vet hospital, which kept him overnight on IV's! It was ludicrous that others had missed it, and our poor puppy had suffered.Excelsior Springs Animal Clinic will take good care of your pet and you will love them.Janet H.Janet H. ★★★★★ Chili Dog has hurt her spine on Stairs.
