The Year of the Pandemic Pets

Hello from the Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center. While 2020 was a trying year in so many ways, adoptions of dogs, cats and even horses soared, and so many of us were able enjoy more time at home with these wonderful additions to our families. We are always happy to provide routine veterinary care for your pets, but are also here if something goes wrong. Remember you can always reach us at 515-294-4900 (small animal) or 515-294-1500 (large animal).

I hope you’ll take the time to read the stories that follow. From how we helped a mother deliver her Labrador litter to how your own pets can help our teams advance science and medicine, each story touches on one of the many facets of operating a world-class teaching hospital for Iowa and beyond. Thank you for your support of our mission as we continue to strive to be the best-in-class…or rather the best-in-care.
