Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Randy at Sparta Vet Clinic has always been amazing to us and our dogs. They took so much care for us all as we put 2 of our dogs down over the couple years and now helping us navigate with our Chester and his allergies. Tonight Dr. Randy called me at 6:50pm and we talked about medicine options for the pup for 15 minutes. I didn’t ask him to call me back when I spoke with his front staff and certainly never expected a call after hours. He certainly cares about his 4 legged patients and the

    Lisa S.

    Probably the best vet clinic I've ever taken my pets to. The staff are all caring and professional, the pricing is extremely fair, and they do not try to push for sales of "extras". Both doctors are very personable and all staff seem to actually care about each individual animal.

    Jacob S.

    Our Sai had to make an emergency trip after we came home from work and found him very sick. Dr. Randy was calm and caring and very knowledgeable. He came in to the office immediately after getting off the phone with me and took care of our little man. Turns out he had bronchitis. But the staff were super friendly and reasonably priced for an ER visit, x rays, and medicine, along with a few hour stay at the clinic. Thanks guys!

    Mia S.

    Sparta Vet Clinic is such an affordable Vet Clinic. Drs. Randy and Karen along with their staff are so compassionate, knowledgeable, and treat all your fur kids like their own. From kitten and puppy age until the end of life. Dr. Randy really goes in depth when it is needed and always discusses all options, even the hard ones that no one wants to make.

    Stacey F.

    Being in the Animal field for almost 20 years, I have not only worked in Veterinary Clinic, but have had lots of experience dealing them... VERY impressed with everyone. I truly appreciate the amazing customer service..AND knowing that in the case of an ER, I have access to a Dr. 24 /7 is very comforting. Keep up the good work!!

    Heather F.

    Not only is Dr. Randy and his staff the primary care staff for our animal shelter, but they've recently become the primary care for my own animals. After a couple of bad experiences at our previous vet, there was no doubt in my mind that Sparta Vet would be where we were happiest. The front desk staff are courteous and friendly, and they greet my animals immediately. Dr. Randy is educational, straight forward, honest and goes above and beyond for my animals. He never tries to up sell services th

    Amber D.

    All the staff truly care about the animals that they see and are respectful of the owners. The Vets are exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable and obviously love all the animals they take care of. Several years ago Dr. Randy saved my old Golden Retriever's life by his quick action in diagnosis and abdominal surgery. Not too many people would come in on their day off to do that. They have taken care of my dogs from puppyhood to old age and euthanasia when necessary. They are The Best!

    Emma L.

    Very friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable staff and veterinarians that really care about your pet and their health. Their respect and kindness for your pet is apparent the minute you walk through the door. I really appreciate the professionalism and caring they have shown us and would recommend them highly.

    Laura S.

    They are awesome ,took us in a emergency situation cause iron was hurting so bad in his ears ,and momma could not make it better , by the end of visit, he was feeling better and within couple days his puppy ears were back flopping as he ran. I love this place 😁

    Nicole M

    All of the veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians are very professional and competent. Dr. Randy, in particular is able to deal with my very anxious and combative German Shepherd. He never shies away from the challenges he presents..

    Eric L.

    Extremely friendly staff. I live in West Salem, so it is actually out of my way to go there. I have never had to wait long for an appointment. When my dog was sick, they called a few days later to check on him. Highly recommend them!

    Mary W.

    Best vet in the area. I drive all the way from La Crosse to see Dr. Randy. Very good with my dogs and also financially responsible. There is no one better for our babies!

    Meranda K.

    Love Dr. Shea & the techs who have helped with our husky pup! She loves going to the vet!! Huge fan of the appointment reminders via text message! Keep up the great work!

    Tiffany L.
