My long haired chihuahua was 15 with CHF. They gave me meds for two years before we had to put him down. His heart couldn’t take anymore. They made the most beautiful paw print with his name, Bentley. And a beautiful wooden urn for his ashes. They were wrapped in blue velvet bags. This meant so much. This vet staff has been wonderful through everything.There were times we couldn’t afford a medicine and they had a donation program that helped. When Bentley got bad and had a massive seizure , I was scared. They brought him back and made me more assured he’d be ok for awhile longer.

Thank you for your care of our Big special needs baby ❤️Dena S.Dena S. ★★★★★ 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 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.
