Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Free Home Animal Hospital has been our family's veterinarian for over 7 years and we can't imagine trusting our pups with anyone else. We have had our share of pup emergencies and they always answer and help us immediately and even during holidays. The whole staff is caring and Dr. Karl is by far the best vet I could imagine working with."

Thank you so much for everything you have done for him. A special thanks to a special lady. Thank you Dianne for caring as much as you do. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Thanks again"
