★★★★★ I have three dogs and have brought them to Raytown-Gregory. They provide some of the best care my fur babies have ever had. I have a Westie that will be 18 in December and her teeth and gums were in bad shape, plus she had some cysts right on her upper eyelid that caused her eye injury and pain. I was so afraid with her age to have her put under. It finally came down to giving her quality of life, so they took blood tests to make sure she could tolerate being put under, and once that was okay I agreed to the surgery. She had 9 teeth extracted and the cysts were removed from her eye. She looked a little rough when I picked her up, lol (Like she went on a three day bender!), but now she has her giddy-up back in her step and she is happy and has play in her... it was the best decision I ever made!Vickie M.Vickie M. ★★★★★ They are the best!Marie P.Marie P. ★★★★★ Friendly, yet professional.

We have used both Dr. Godwin & Dr. Lowry and were thankful to have a vet to take our fur children to that was as knowledgeable and compassionate as they are. They have never pressured us into some high price treatment or maintenance or guilted us for not having the funds to pay for a service right at that time either like some vet offices do. We will be loyal clients as we won't trust anyone else with all our fur family's healthcare.Erin VErin V ★★★★★ I had just adopted a rescue cat named Gracie who was extremely thin and obviously ill. I took her to the Veterinarian, Matthew Godwin, at Raytown-Gregory Animal Health Center. Not only was he very knowledgeable, but he was kind and caring. I could tell he genuinely cares about animals.

All of my animals have received care there over the years, 4 dogs and one cat which equals out to about 20 years. All of the vets truly care about their fur baby clients & the fur baby parents! There's a good combination of vets who have been with the practice for as long as I've been taking my animals there and younger vets. One thing that is really important to me is the front office staff! They are kind & personable, and very understanding. They are long term employees of 10+ years at the least.

Dr Godwin knows his stuff, the front office staff and techs are really great too. They're fast, courteous, and reasonably priced.Jason W.Jason W. ★★★★★ I can’t say enough great things about Raytown-Gregory Animal Health. I started taking my dog to Dr. Godwin when I couldn’t get a response from our regular vet. Turns out, our dog was diabetic. How frightening, but Dr. Godwin and the rest of the team got us through it. It’s been two years since her diagnosis and she is handling it like a champ. She ended up going blind from the diabetes, but they helped us to cope with that as well. Needless to say, Raytown-Gregory is now our regular vet. I would never take Molly to anyone else. Bonus: the pricing is way better than our old vet’s office, but that didn’t factor into my decision to change vets.Sandy K.Sandy K. ★★★★★ Very kind and fair prices!Chris W.Chris W. ★★★★★ The staff is always caring and efficient; Chillicothe and Tuffy give eight paws up.Paul W.Paul W. ★★★★★ Always kind and caring towards my animals and meDebi M.Debi M. ★★★★★ Thank you a big difference I realize the City budget goes just so far, but every bit counts they did a good job .Bob S.Bob S. ★★★★★ Great place to bring your pets for care. Everyone is always so nice and friendly.Ray E.Ray E. ★★★★☆ Took my small breed dog in for a dental and extraction. When I dropped her off I could hear her screaming out in pain but I couldn't see her. Over and over she gave a pain cry. Along with anxiety barks but those I expected. I am somewhat worried about what state I'm going to be picking her up in.Previous experience with them was not like this at all. They worked with her and she never screamed like this so I just don't know.BonnieBonnie ★★★★☆ Maybe a little expensive, but my dogs are worth it. The staff is incredible and all the vets that I have seen have been wonderful. We had 1 dog that took 4 months to clear up and they worked so very hard to make it happen.Peggy L.Peggy L. ★★★★☆ The staff are very kind and helpful!

Dianna G.

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.
