Veterinary Service with Courtesy & Respect!


Dakota Veterinary Hospital’s mission is to provide exceptional care to every animal and to build lasting bonds with every client.  We demonstrate compassion and provide the highest standard of medical care.  We treat everyone with respect and kindness.


Upright conduct:  We work together to fulfill our Mission Statement by developing trust with our clients, empathy with our patients, honesty and accountability to clients and co-workers.

Safe Work:   We have a no tolerance policy to negative behavior.  We respect clients, co-workers, and expect the same respect from our clients as well.   We ensure high safety standards to ensure physical safety while on the job.

Self-Value:  We encourage our team to continue to develop professional and personal goals.


When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we will usher you into an examination room as soon as we have one available.  Our goal is to see all of our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

You will normally see a Veterinary Technologist or Veterinary Assistant first who will take a history and gather some data for the doctor.  A veterinarian will see you next, examine your pet, answer your questions and plan further diagnostics or treatment as necessary.  You will normally see the Technologist or Assistant again to wrap things up, and she or he will provide you with further educational information and answer routine wellness and care questions for you.  Our receptionists will handle billing and schedule any needed follow up.

We are excited to meet you and animal family members!
