Toni T.

Dr Tichacek is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He cares about each patient as if they were his own. His brilliance and surgical skills put him above other veterinarians in the area. All staff seem to be very kind and truly care about the pets and owners. I can’t imagine going anywhere else!

Absolutely wonderful workers. Knowledgeable staff. I recommend them to everyone. They were so patient and answered all our questions. I highly suggest them to everyone.

Alycia L.

The friendly and professional staff at Spears Animal Hospital have taken excellent care of my dog since she was a puppy. I honestly would not trust anyone else with my pet's medical needs. I highly recommend them.

Noah L.

Super friendly and professional help from Dr. Sarah, the price is a little bit high but she is the only USDA certified doctor in Carbondale, it's totally worth!

Mario W.

We have been going to Spears since 2004 and they have cared for our babies magnificently in good and not-so-good times. We can’t say enough about the staff, Doc T, etc. They treat us like family.

We trust Dr.T and the staff at Spear’s completely. We have been long time clients and couldn’t be happier. They have seen us through some tough times and always were kind and professional, while putting the best interest of our pets first.

Noralee E.

I was able to get a same day appointment when my cat got his eye cut from a late night fight. The staff was very professional and able to exam him without much squirming. I even received a follow-up call about his condition.

Ra P.

Spears has been extremely helpful, capable, communicative, and accommodating. They repeatedly made time to see my kitty in an emergency circumstance on three separate occasions over the course of 8 days. All of the staff I have interacted with have been polite, patient with my many questions, and have demonstrated sincere interest in the well being of my pet. They called to check on how he was faring unprompted after a visit and were even willing to refund a portion of fees incurred after an attempted solution was ineffective. I would say overall a highly recommended experience, as long as I am living in southern Illinois I will be bringing my pets here.

Raisa F.

My first experience with Spears Animal Hospital was around 18-20 years ago when my husband, 4 cats & I moved back here in retirement. I needed a place for the cats till we got settled in the new house. They took great care of the cats... then when years later we found out my cat Chester was a chronic kidney cat .. the staff treated Chester like their own. My 2 females were treated for hypothyroidism, again they treated them like their own cats.
I have great confidence in the Drs. & staff the facility is always clean, staff friendly & helpful.
I highly recommend them.

Rebecca M.

Wonderful time bringing Charlie to his new appointment. Charlie loved the royal treatment. A big welcome, shiny bowl of water and a large dog biscuit. I appreciated all the staff and knowledgeable veterinarian care. The heartworm test was completed in 8 minutes! Yahoo! 5 Stars well earned!
