  • "We have been going to Kindness Animal Hospital for 18 years and have had the best experience every time. We recently had to make the hard decision to let our angel Gander go and Dr. Odegard was the best during that difficult time. Just received a wonderful card with kind words from him and his team. Thank you!!"
