TESTIMONIALS

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Our Sai had to make an emergency trip after we came home from work and found him very sick. Dr. Randy was calm and caring and very knowledgeable. He came in to the office immediately after getting off the phone with me and took care of our little man. Turns out he had bronchitis. But the staff were super friendly and reasonably priced for an ER visit, x rays, and medicine, along with a few hour stay at the clinic. Thanks guys!"
    Mia S.
  • "Sparta Vet Clinic is such an affordable Vet Clinic. Drs. Randy and Karen along with their staff are so compassionate, knowledgeable, and treat all your fur kids like their own. From kitten and puppy age until the end of life. Dr. Randy really goes in depth when it is needed and always discusses all options, even the hard ones that no one wants to make."
    Stacey F.
  • "Wonderful staff, First visit for My pregnant Frenchie !! I felt very welcomed and my dog was thoroughly cared for. I did not feel judged for deciding to breed in a world of so many adoptable dogs , I was actually complimented on knowing the ins and outs of this entire process which encouraged me as this is out first litter. We left happy, grateful and now have a new Vet."
    Melissa G.
  • "Being in the Animal field for almost 20 years, I have not only worked in Veterinary Clinic, but have had lots of experience dealing them... VERY impressed with everyone. I truly appreciate the amazing customer service..AND knowing that in the case of an ER, I have access to a Dr. 24 /7 is very comforting. Keep up the good work!!"
    Heather F.
  • "Not only is Dr. Randy and his staff the primary care staff for our animal shelter, but they've recently become the primary care for my own animals. After a couple of bad experiences at our previous vet, there was no doubt in my mind that Sparta Vet would be where we were happiest. The front desk staff are courteous and friendly, and they greet my animals immediately. Dr. Randy is educational, straight forward, honest and goes above and beyond for my animals. He never tries to up sell services they don't need, and their wellness is his number one concern. I know my babies are in the best hands with this team of caring professionals!"
    Amber D.
  • "All the staff truly care about the animals that they see and are respectful of the owners. The Vets are exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable and obviously love all the animals they take care of. Several years ago Dr. Randy saved my old Golden Retriever's life by his quick action in diagnosis and abdominal surgery. Not too many people would come in on their day off to do that.
    They have taken care of my dogs from puppyhood to old age and euthanasia when necessary. They are The Best!"
    Emma L.
