We value feedback from our clients. Please share your story with us by writing a testimonial.


-Cindy Gillim from Indianapolis, IN

I just wanted to thank Denise and the whole crew at VCA Shadeland Animal Hospital for everything you have done for me. My Lawrence home burned in a fire on May 8 and the great folks at Shadeland checked out my 5 puppies and cat for smoke inhalation and treated them for their ailments. Then they graciously boarded my 6 adult dogs for a week until I could get squared away, including testing all of them and giving them heartworm and flea treatments. These are people that truly care about people and animals and have been so very kind and considerate of me and my animals and the trauma we have all been through. I will always appreciate what you have done for me and will refer everyone I know to your hospital. Thanks again Denise!

Extra Caring

-Kim from Indianapolis, IN

After restitching my dog because he can untie knots, I was relaying a story of my friend whose dog was run over. The dog is okay but will have some hip problems. Well, at the end of the story, they donated a very large bag of food just to help a little. You see, the friend runs a ministry for young men who have gotten themselves in trouble. They don't have a lot and run strictly on donations. The donation is just an example of the extra care for our furry friends even when they are not their patient.

A Tribute to Dr. Douglas Lucke

-Carolyn from Indianapolis, IN

For over twenty years, my dogs were lovingly cared for by Dr. Douglas Lucke who has since retired. This was the kind of doctor who gave after hour individual care to my sheltie who was gravely ill with an illness of his pancreas. Dr. Lucke spent weekend and evening hours caring for Reggie. I could call Dr. Lucke at any time. He was always patient. I cannot say enough about Dr. Lucke, Denise, and Karla. When my beloved Reggie died last year, I felt that he had had the best medical care in the world for the 14 years of his life.

Unbelievable care for pet and owner

-Raymond from Indianapollis, IN
Pet Name: Bella

I took my puppy in because she wasn't eating. I explained to the staff that I was low in cash, but that didn't stop them from giving me class a service. I cannot say enough nice things about this clinic or its staff. I have found my permanent vet with these folks.
