I absolutely recommend taking your fur babies here! Dr. Elisse Schaaf was extremely communicative, patient, and showed that she truly cared about my cat. She answered all of the questions I had. The staff were also extremely nice. They even followed up a couple days after our visit to check on how she is doing. I won’t go anywhere else!


We have been taking our pets to Blue Springs Animal Hospital for 35+ years and have always been pleased with everyone, from veterinarians to vet techs and all of the other employees there. We have seen numerous different veterinarians and currently are working with Dr. Schaaf. They have always been honest, open, and have answered our questions and concerns. I can't think of any place better to take my furbabies!


Our dog Baxter got hit by a car and the staff took amazing care of him. Dr. Elisse Schaaf was an absolutely amazing medical professional. She helped us more than anyone could really know. Bring your furry family members here.

Zoey and I love Dr. Schaaf! She is so sweet and personable! The ladies at the front desk are always so kind and understanding when I have to wait in the car until Zoey’s appointment since she barks at other dogs. They are AAHA accredited and top notch! You won’t regret bringing your pet to this lovely hospital.


1st time at this vet office. Dr. Schaaf was kind, thorough and very helpful with my cat. Thank you!
