  • "Dr J Beachner, is awesome! !! She has the "old fashioned ethics " My dogs know 2 blocks away where they're going, they absolutely LOVE her. Fortunate to have found her."

  • "We use Belton Animal Clinic and love them because they do exotic animals. However, when it came to our Vizsla that needed ACL replacement that they didn't do they recommended us to Raytown Animal Hospital and Dr. Chirpich. We were EXTREMELY pleased with his services and his staff. Our Vizsla did great. Bad news was he ended up tearing his other ACL and we returned back to Dr. Chirpich. He's home and recovering and we are VERY pleased again."
