  • "I've taken my pets to Dr. E and Care-Pets for more than 25 years. There isn't a more educated and sincere staff anywhere. And Dr. E doesn't hesitate to send our fur children to specialists if necessary. We are blessed to have such a great animal hospital and wellness center in Southern Indiana!"

  • "Everyone that cares for fur babies are exceptional, caring, and understanding about love and care that they give to our family members and our family. Everyone that helped in the care of Harley, while he was alive and after his passing, made me feel secure in knowing he was treated like I'd want treated if it was me instead of him. He was not treated like a dog, but as a very loved member of a family. Thanks you!!! I truly appreciate each person's care and kindness during all of our vet visits...and especially Harley's last visit. Each person made my pain and grief tolerable knowing he was well taken care of and given the love and respect he deserved before and after his passing. This meant a lot to me. Thank you and hugs to each of you!!!"
