    Michael P.
  • "Great doctors, Great staff and they all care for your animals like they are their own. So if you're looking for an Animal Doctor this is the place you're looking for."
    Darryl R.
  • "I have taken my pets to Lange Animal Clinic for years. In fact, it goes back to the 1960s. When Dr. Lange retired and Dr. O'Rourke took over I remained with him. I have never had a bad experience. I find all of the staff to be compassionate, caring, and provide very lovingly care for all of God's little creatures that we love so much. Their expertise takes into consideration possible upcoming problems as your loved one ages and tries to prevent or slow the process by explaining clearly what you can or cannot do about the condition. I have the utmost respect and confidence in all of the Drs. and staff there. Thank you for all the care have given us."
    Sharon B.

    Renee W.
  • "The friendly and professional staff at Lange is truly amazing. I would never take my pets anywhere else. They know you by name as well as know the pets by name as soon as you walk in the door. Been going here for 16 years and Dr. Colleen is wonderful. Highly recommended."
