  • "They do an excellent job of care for our dogs. Also they take the time to explain what needs done and what they are doing."
    duanej, Lee's Summit
  • "Dr. Laura always listens to concerns and questions and provides insightful responses. She considers the animal, the patient, and oftentimes the budget of the family when giving recommendations."
  • "The experience was fine."
    renees, Lee's Summit
  • "I needed to board my furbabies and I didn't have a lot of notice. Southport took them in and didn't hassle me about the short notice or having to give them their shots while we were out of town. They followed my request to kennel them in the same kennel without giving me grief. My girls are used to being together. Even though they aren't kenneled together at night, they do sleep together during the day. I figured they would be less stressed if they were together and I was right. They came home happy and didn't blow their coats due to stress. YAY!!"
    lauriel, Raymore
  • "They did a tremendous job taking care of our maltipoo while we were on vacation! Very good price and very good care!!"
    jillk, Pleasant Hill
  • "Dr. Laura has been our only pet doctor since we moved to Lees Summit 23 years ago. All of our animals have received the best care possible!"
    caroll, Lees Summit
  • "A little pricey but great stay and vet."
