They truly care about each animal & what they do! It shows when our dog Mochi jumps out of the car & is so happy to greet them!Mochi had a sever allergic reaction, which caused her to have large hives all over her body. She was also wheezing. We called DCAH right away & Dr. Cain was able to work her into his jammed schedule of surgical procedures, etc. and see her that same day. After a steroid injection Mochi was 87% back to normal in 24 hours. Danni also called the next day to check on our girl. Can't say enough about how great this team is!jordan G.jordan G. ★★★★★ We moved to Overland Park in May 2020 and needed a vet for our dog. This one seemed close and we gave it a try. The staff was outstanding! We have boarded out dog there, had him groomed, had his checkups there and even had them take care of a couple of emergency situations and they were awesome. We recommend them highly!jim and judy H.jim and judy H. ★★★★★ I had my 10 lb. chihuahua's teeth cleaned and couldn't be happier with the service Dr. Cain and his staff provided. Everything went super smoothly and we had our little guy back by 3:45 that day. I'd highly recommend Deer Creek Animal hospital to anyone looking for a professional and very friendly vet hospital. Thank you Dr. Cain!Suzi T.Suzi T. ★★★★★ Great service and caringPat L.Pat L. ★★★★★ The staff is very friendly. The Doctors are very caring and really want to help any way they can. They have a great groomer, who does a wonderful job with dogs that are a bit fearful of baths and nail trims.Shayla M.Shayla M. ★★★★★ We have been bringing all our animals here for the past 10 years. We moved to KC 14 years ago, and bounced around from vet to vet because we were never happy with the care. Once we found Deer Creak Animal Hospital we instantly felt like our needs were being met and our fur-babies were being treated with the care and love that we provide to them ourselves. Deer Creak has literally saved our pets lives, and provides high quality care. I would never recommend a different vet office. Deer creak is the best.Whitney R.Whitney R. ★★★★★ Deercreek has always given good care to my three Basset hounds. When Oliver hurt his shoulders and was in extreme pain, Dr Cain saw him immediately ( I had to leave him and come back) they treated him and called me to let me know how he was doing. They were booked that day but they fit him in. In doing so they saved me money and they stopped Oliver's pain. They are a wonderful group of care givers for your pet.jackie B.jackie B. ★★★★★ We’ve been clients of Dr. Cain’s since 2013 and couldn’t be happier we chose Deer Creek and him as our place of care.

Deer Creek animal hospital is the best!!! My dog Tater has some serious fear aggression especially at the Vet. It makes it very hard for her to get her care done. We decided to sedate her for her visit this time around and Dr. Cain and his staff bent over backwards to help Tater and take care of her. And never once made us feel bad for having an aggressive dog (most vets do). They are absolutely the best!
