This place is amazing! About 6 months ago I made the decision to switch vets as I wasn’t happy with the care my pup was receiving at her old place at all. I did LOTS of research before deciding on Blue Springs Animal Hospital and I can’t even get close to describing how amazing they are! We saw Dr. Cook and she was so sweet. My pup is shy at first and Dr. Cook spent a good 5-10 minutes just letting her warm up to her before she started examining her. She was very in depth and caught some things I had suspected the old vet was missing. She answered all of my questions (and I had a lot) and made it easy to understand! She was super upfront with the cost of everything and even provided a few free samples of some things! We came back a month later for dental cleaning and I was just as pleased! The front desk staff is equally as fantastic. They’re knowledgeable and helpful, and always very nice! If you’re on the fence, Blue Springs Animal Hospital is definitely a great choice!


We have an 8 week old Pug that we brought in for his first visit. We were greeted by everyone that was at the front counter! Everyone that greeted us was very friendly and took an interest in our Pug! We only waited a few minutes before Dr. Cook's assistant brought us back to the room! She went over all of the records we had and went over our options for their Puppy Program and the benefits of it. She asked us if we had any questions for Dr. Cook, which we did, being new Pug parents and wrote down all of our questions/concerns. Dr. Cook was amazing! She was so nice and seemed to genuinely care how we as "parents" were doing with him! She took the time to go over all of my questions and gave us advice on potty training and crate training and gave me a realistic time frame of when to expect certain Puppy goals. We were also encouraged to call if ever we had any questions or concerns. She even asked if it was ok to show him off to the staff in the back and if she could take a picture of him for their website, which we didn't mind at all! I am so happy that we chose Blue Springs Animal Hospital & Pet Resort and will gladly refer them to any of our Pet Parents!!!


Let me just say how amazing this place is. We have been going to Dr. Cook for about 5 years with both of our animals. She has taken care of our sweet Mikko till the day we had to put him to rest. Dr. Cook goes above and beyond for our animals. I recently had an emergency with our cat, Am, and she took amazing care of her. She is back to herself! I can’t thank Dr. Cook and her staff for how amazing they are. Dr. Cook truly cares about her career and I know for a fact God put her on this planet to help our animals.


Only 2nd time we've been here and walked in the door and they knew who we were. Everyone you encounter here truly cares for your pet. It's so refreshing and appreciated. I had a concern about my pets small size and immunizations and Dr. Cook didn't make me feel silly, she understood and set up a schedule to spread out the shots. Thank you!


I LOVE Dr. Cook!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
