We appreciate Dr. Jennifer’s research/team approach to veterinary medicine. Dr. Jennifer stays current in her field, researches out-of-the-ordinary situations, and readily shares information about any and all recommendations involving our dogs’ health. Dr. Jennifer and her skilled staff don’t use a cookie-cutter approach; they understand the individual needs of every animal and recognize that we are an important part in the health of our animals.

I would recommend The Animal Hospital of Adel and especially Dr. Jennifer Hoffelmeyer to anyone looking for small animal care. Dr. Jennifer is very knowledgeable of the most current animal health practices and takes the time to explain all of your treatment options in a way that’s easy to understand. She always puts the needs of her patients and clients first. Her caring and kind demeanor show that she truly loves working with animals and always wants the best for your pet!

I recently started going here for my geriatric cat who has kidney, heart, thyroid, and blood pressure issues. Dr. Jennifer has given him excellent care and her prices are very fair! She takes time to explain and discuss the plans for his care, she consults other vets to help learn more, and she really turns over every stone. He has improved in the four months he’s been going to her and it’s a relief.

Dr. Jennifer is compassionate, thorough, and I feel at ease with my kitty in her care. She’s wonderful! I can’t praise her enough. Her staff has always been kind and gentle with my old kitty as well.

Dr. Jen is wonderful and all of her staff are as well. The clinic is always very clean. We had a canine cancer patient who was very much a part of our family. Dr. Jen took the time to answer every single question we had and help us find the meds ISU prescribed at a lower cost. When his time came to an end, she was right there with us, tearing up as we said our goodbyes. Horrible thing to go through, but they were all so kind and comforting to my family. We trust Dr. Jen for our dogs’ complete care.

Jennifer has been taking care of our dogs for the past five years. Over that time we’ve seen her for routine wellness visits, dental cleanings, surgery, and other minor illnesses. From our first visit, we knew we were in good hands. She’s a wonderful listener and takes time to make sure all our concerns are addressed. She is compassionate and has a gentle way that is calming to our dogs. We highly recommend The Animal Hospital of Adel to anyone seeking outstanding pet care.

Dr. Jennifer and her staff have cared for both of our pets. When the decision was made to put to rest our 16-year-old Cocker, the compassion Dr. Jennifer and her staff showed was very comforting. Our four-month-old Japanese Chin had a very scary health issue and Dr. Jennifer nursed him back to the ornery, healthy puppy he is by working nights and weekends with him. Thank you to Dr. Jennifer and her amazing staff.

We were recommended to Dr. Jennifer by our friends when we got our two Golden Retriever puppies. Dr. Jennifer and her staff are personable and caring about every animal they see. Our fur kids have been sick with diarrhea since we got them. We’ve tried multiple dog foods and medications that were recommended by her. Dr. Jennifer is amazing and always willing to help us out with any issues we have with the girls. Prior to coming to her, I had a Westie that had CHF and multiple other heart problems. No vet believed me until she was diagnosed a year before I had to put her to sleep. I honestly can’t say enough great things about this team! We will definitely be bringing all of our animals to her.

I drive from Urbandale to take my two dogs to Dr. Jen because I know there is no one I can trust more to take good care of them. She always takes her time examining them carefully and answering any questions I have. She and her staff are wonderful!
