Brookview Animal Health Center

At Brookview, our staff's goal is to make your pet's experience as stress and pain free as possible. The office has been decorated with a Carribean theme.  The soft yellow walls, plants and music play along with the songs from Sammy the Cockatiel, and Juliet the Umbrella Cockatoo. As you sit in our comfortable couch and chairs, the waiting room has a calming effect on both owners and pets with its waterfall-koi pond.

Our 5 exam rooms and waiting area are spacious and have comfortable chairs or loveseats in each.  Each room is decorated in a different theme. The pets are all cared for by compassionate, pet loving technicians.  Dr. Smith and Dr. Rachael have unbelievable "bedside manners" and a great love for animals.

At Brookview, we are much more than just a hospital. Our staff is there to listen as well as educate. We can help you with the minor questions to a great illness. Let us help your pet today.

The office has three cats that love dogs and kids: Ices:a snow white DSH, Mac, a three legged orange tabby, and Daunte, a huge black cat, all rescued from the Humane Society of North Iowa. They often sit on the counter waiting for someone to pet them. We also have a Russian Tortoise named Tasha in one of our exam rooms.
