I highly recommend Hergenrether Animal Hospital for the care of your pet. I am very thankful I found Dr. Hergenrether to care for all my fur-babies. I’m always very confident in his diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Hergenrether and Dr. Underwood both genuinely care and go above and beyond in the care of my pets. Both doctors are very knowledgeable and patient and answer all questions and concerns I have regarding my pets and keep me informed during the whole process. They always explain the treatment they recommend and give all options that are available. The whole staff is very compassionate and caring.
We have known Dr. Hergenrether since 2002 and he has been our vet almost from the time we met him. He has taken care of Sasha since she was a puppy and she is almost 16 now. Sadie is a rescue who came into our family in 2014. Shortly after Sadie joined our family, Sasha became very ill. Dr. Hergenrether took amazing care of her and us. When it became apparent that she needed certain equipment and tests that Dr. Hergenrether did not have, he insured that she was immediately admitted to Oklahoma State University’s veterinary hospital. The follow-up care was handled jointly by OSU and Hergenrether Animal Hospital, and that made the situation a lot easier on us.
Shorty after Sasha recovered, Sadie had surgery to repair a partially torn ACL. Once again, Dr. Hergenrether and his staff too excellent care of all of us. Of course he also sees the girls twice a year for immunizations and check-ups. In addition, we know he and his staff are available whenever an emergency arises. One of the things we love about Dr. H is that he understands that his job encompasses more that just caring for our fur babies. He also takes amazing care of the pet parents, especially when there is a crisis. He is calm and reassuring. Even when we don’t understand test results or treatment protocols, he patiently explains everything and he honestly lets us know whether we should be concerned or not. That is a great comfort when one of our babies is sick. When they aren’t sick and we are just there for a check-up, it is usually a family affair. Dr. H’s sense of humor is finely tuned and we love trading one liners with him.
The staff at Hergenrether Animal Hospital knows all of us by name and they are always pleasant and helpful. Whenever we call for something the always ask how Sasha and Sadie are doing. They routinely follow up with us after an illness or surgery, and they listen carefully to any concerns we might have. Dr. Hergenrether will always be our vet, despite the fact that he is a Mets’ fan and we are Cardinals’ fans. He is the best and we would not trust our babies to anyone else. Dr. Hergenrether truly loves his job and his patients and that shows every time we visit. If you want compassionate, thorough, and knowledgeable care for your fur babies, we highly recommend Hergenrether Animal Hospital.
I was recommended to Dr. Hergenrether years ago through my dogs specialist in OKC and switching to him was the best decision I have ever made. I have 8 dogs in total with 2 special needs. All of my dogs thrive in his care. He keeps up with the latest in the field and is very thorough. I am certain that my special needs dogs would not be doing as well if they were not in the care of Hergenrether Animal Hospital. I have also had to use their after hours services several times and they have always been amazing with my animals. They are willing to come in no matter what time and do what they need for them. Dr. Hergenrether and Dr. Underwood are amazing vets who truly care about the animals they are treating and are always willing to go above and beyond for their clients. I would not trust anyone else with my fur babies.
