We’re taking extra precautions at this time in the way we conduct our normal business. The current situation surrounding COVID-19 is alarming, and we want to keep our staff and pet parents as safe as possible.
What we’re doing different (Updated 5/14/2020):
–Curbside service ONLY – you will not be able to enter the hospital, but we are still open and will come out to your vehicle. This applies to all appointments, surgeries, drop off appointments, and any boarding drop offs. Clients will need to call KCAC once they arrive, be checked in over the phone, and their pet will be brought inside by a KCAC staff member. All discussions with the veterinarian & payments will take place via phone. We ask that clients remain in their vehicles at all times, so as to limit person-to-person contact. We have also instructed our employees to maintain the recommended safe, 6 foot distance from pet owners as best they can. Please don’t be offended when they ask you to remain in your vehicle or step back from your window to talk to you. For more info, give us a call – 757-886-1300
-We are asking any staff member that is not feeling well, or may have been exposed to stay home. This may limit the number of staff members we have available to complete a normal business day. Please be patient with us if you are experiencing longer than normal wait times.
-If you’ve traveled out of the country in the past 2 weeks, or potentially been exposed to the virus, please do not bring your pet in. Call us to make other arrangements for your pet to be seen. (Having a friend or family member drop off is an option.)

“This was our first visit. It was awesome to know that the vet took the time to read through my cats previous medical records from our other vet office and came with questions so she could understand what was going on better. I felt comfortable knowing that she knew the history of my cat. It was awesome that they also greeted my cat with chicken! Even though she didn’t eat it because she was scared it was a great feeling to know they were doing everything they could to make her feel more comfortable. Also the staff was very friendly, even with my energetic/excited/loud child. They offered stickers and a coloring book to help keep her occupied. At the end of the visit I loved the report that was given to me with suggestions and key points we discussed. I didn’t feel rushed and I felt comfortable. Thank you for an amazing experience, and we are so happy to have found a new vet closer to our home!”Kendall Lybert09/07/2019
“The Kiln Creek Animal Care facility is "Top Notch" in all aspects of caring for pets from check in to check out. We would definitely recommend this facility to others.”Pamela Lovett08/04/2019
“I love bringing Koji to Kiln Creek Animal Care! They treat him as if he was theirs! He loves going and feels right at home with them. I don’t ever feel like I’m being conned into paying for something that isn’t needed. They provide excellent care and try to find the best solutions!! Thank you for taking such good care of my baby boy!”Courtney Branch07/29/2019
“I’ve had nothing but a positive experience since bringing Cookie here. I am always greeted with a smile and all of my questions are answered. What I like best, is Dr. Spannagel is always consulted for any questions staff are unsure of and get right back to me! I was nervous swapping from an ER vet, but I wish I made the switch much sooner!”Chardonnay Robinson05/21/2019
“This was a wonderful experience. While the cat was just fine, it really reassured ME as I am a very anxious pet mom-my babies are family.”Deborah Brown01/25/2019
“Dr. Spannagel was excellent. So happy to see her join the team! She was really good with Tucker, who, as you all know, is not the friendliest of dogs. She seems to have gained his trust quickly.”Dee Bullock02/02/2019
“This was an excellent experience for my Willie who was a Kiln Creek Animal Care for the first time. He is scared to go to the Vet but with patience and care his office visit went very well! Thank you!”Pamela Phillips01/16/2019
“I am really grateful for the care that Kiln Creek staff put in to finding a way to make Miyagi's vet visits a good experience for him. He had grown increasingly anxious at previous vets and was so fearful on his first visit to Kiln Creek that the staff recommended he come back again for a real exam after we discussed a way to decrease his anxiety. After coming up with a plan for keeping my food-oriented pup more interested in treats than whoever was poking him, staff can now fully examine him and he comes away happy (and full of peanut butter!). He and I no longer dread visits to the vet like I had previously. Thank you so much!”Elizabeth Land12/04/2018
“Compassionate, informative, understanding, patient. Also when cost is a factor I’ve experienced understanding vs impatience.”Paula Fail11/25/2018
“Best vet clinic ever! Physicians and staff are incomparable! Great, professional service! Loving environment! Fun! Supportive! Immaculate! everything a pet owner could wish for!”Carol Davanay10/08/2018
“This is the best veterinary office I have ever been to. The staff were kind and made my pet feel welcome.”Erin Hamilton09/26/2018
“There is only good! My dog is almost 14 years old now and although she's aging, Kiln Creek vet staff are keeping her as healthy and happy as possible. They are always very gentle with her as she's extremely anxious. They know her by name (almost like Cheers if you remember the show) and it's heartwarming to see how she takes to everybody. A dog knows when someone has a caring spirit. Dr. Crist and others recommend medicines and products that will or may help alleviate her pain and give her a chance at a quality happy life. I'm tremendously grateful for all they do and highly recommend this practice.”Frances DeMarco09/26/2018
“Best vet we have ever been to. We love it here.”Katie Lovell
