Courteous, professional, and gentle. My cat has never been this relaxed at the vet. I’m recommending to anyone close to Norwalk to come here!

Offering curbside service during Covid. The staff was excellent and informative and listened to all my concerns about my new dog. I had a lot of questions, too! I feel confident that she is receiving the best care!!


Very close to home, but I chose it over others because of reviews from others, their response and helpfulness in est. care for my newly adopted lil guy, and a couple of (K)Courtney's in office and I am one, as well..I've never been a part of that many in same spot before--so I kinda had to!

Everyone at Family Pet is very friendly and down to earth. The Doctors take the time to listen to and answer our questions regarding our pet’s care. We have not had to worry about surprise fees when we come in. They are honest and fair with their pricing.

The staff is very friendly and great with our Rosie. We've seen several doctors at the Norwalk and West Des Moines locations, and they give the best care to Rosie.

Extremely happy with the care that has been given to my fur baby Rylee. She is more than a pet to me, she is my family and I am blessed to have people take such good care of her. I would highly recommend them anytime. And Rylee has had some big surgeries well at least big to me and the Doctors have checkup up on her along with Courtney who works there, asking how Rylee is acting and even allowing me to send pictures of Rylee when I think something looks wrong, even when they are closed for the day. So thankful! Again thank you guys so much! Amazing people you all are!

We love this place, they welcomed us with opened arms when we moved to Des Moines a year ago and we couldn’t be happier with their treatment of our animals.

My senior dog (12 years old) had dental surgery at Family Pet Vet. We had a great experience and I would recommend others to have their pet’s dental procedures here! They kept me up to date, even calling me twice during the procedure to let me know how things were going. I felt nervous after dropping him off but reassured by every call that I got updating me on his condition. The notes I received on his chart were very thorough and explained in terms that I understood fairly well even though I am not in a medical field. This is a great place that has caring vet techs and specializes in dental procedures!
