Our dog is a sweetheart, but he’s no good at the vet (darn white coat syndrome). Sydney’s went above and beyond to make him feel comfortable right away.

Dr. Jessica Kessler then came in for the procedure and did everything she needed to keep him calm and comfortable. The entire process was so quick and pain-free for our boy.

Dr. Duderstadt and her staff met me at the clinic just before they opened. They wrapped my baby up and wheeled her into the hospital with the utmost care and respect. Let’s be honest, people. These are first responders. These people have some of the biggest hearts I’ve ever seen. Gibraltar is far and above any animal clinic I’ve been to. So, thank you, Dr. Duderstadt.

They are easy to work with and are all so friendlyDawn S.Dawn S. ★★★★★ Amazing place. Great with my feisty dogSheri B.Sheri B. ★★★★★ When I woke up June 8th, 2022, it was the day I had been dreading for the last 15 years... It was clear that it was time my dog Trixy had to cross the rainbow bridge. I called every vet in the area and they all told me the same thing: they couldn't get her in for another week or so. As I reached the last "vet near me" on my google search list I was desperate. That vet thankfully ended up being Gibraltar Vet. From the moment my uncontrollable sobs were heard on the phone, they understood the dire need of getting my beloved dog of 15 years and 9 days the care she desperately needed. I was told I could bring her in as soon as I could and the doctor would move his schedule around because keeping her alive at this point would be inhumane due to her suffering.Since then, I have taken Trixy's brother (my other dog), Beau, a rescue that is very weary of strangers due to his past, to see them. They are so kind and gentle with him that he has no issues going there.100000/10 would recommend going there because you can tell they genuinely care about animals and want to help the best way they can. I won't go anywhere elseLauryn G.Lauryn G. ★★★★★ Always good care of my animal friends.Fred W.Fred W. ★★★★★ Everyone is very friendly, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and will work with to find the best outcome for our furbabies.SherylSheryl ★★★★★ They care for your animal just like family! Our dog has a history of gastrointestinal issues (she's a senior) and Gibraltar called us immediately when she started having issues. They got her seen by a staff vet ASAP & began treatment immediately. What a huge peace of mind for us since we were still out of town at the time. They truly care for and love your animals. We've boarded our dogs for a long time with Gibraltar Vet and wouldn't trust anyone else with our senior girl!Sharon MSharon M ★★★★★ I put Dr. Jane by accident on my review. I meant Dr. Judy and staff. Absolutely incredible and compassionate! A+! Wouldn't even think about taking my pet anywhere else. Thank you Dr Judy and staff for the incredible care for Emmy! 💗Becky P.Becky P. ★★★★★ My most positive comment is the way the team of employees all seem to be sincerely animal lovers. It is more than just a job for them. The vet services and boarding both have been nothing but positive for my Shih tzu Roxie.Cindy C.Cindy C. ★★★★★ excellent caring servicedee G.dee G. ★★★★★ I choose Gibraltar Veterinary because they offer ALL the services I need in one place, I stay because of their professional and friendly staff! Having the option of boarding my pet basically at her Dr's, gives me the knowledge that she is well cared for.Tin N.Tin N. ★★★★★ Really professional from the vet right down to the helpDave B.Dave B. ★★★★★ The front desk is always nice never rude the few times I have been in thus far. When calling it is the same always friendly never rude. And…. Dr. Duderstadt is amazing. I absolutely trust her to take care of my 2 new kitties. After an unexpected and for me a traumatic loss of my 9 year old cat Angel and a horrible vet experience I came here and she is a God send. Nothing less than an amazing vet and human.Wendi O.Wendi O. ★★★★★ They are the best at taking care of your pet and human worries.Laura Carole H.Laura Carole H. ★★★★★ Absolutely love taking my pup to this vet!

They keep you informed of all the pending vaccination or test missing for your furry friend. The curbside service is also very good.Juan Pablo B.Juan Pablo B. ★★★★★ I always receive exceptional care for my pet at Gibraltar Vet Hospital. Morgan does a great job grooming my pet. The veterinarians are always caring and attentive to my pets needs and my concerns. Wouldn’t take Bella anywhere else!Jane T.Jane T. ★★★★★ Brought my 1.5 year old mini Australian Shepard here for a second opinion regarding an on & off limping problem she has been having for a few weeks. Although I was unable to go inside with her, I felt that the staff took their time to explain their whole examination and findings. I spoke directly with Dr. Hilton twice during my dogs visit and he ensured any questions and concerns I had were acknowledged and addressed. All the team members were professional on the phone and in person, I know my dog is in great hands here. We will likely be making the switch to full time patients here. It is worth the extra drive from our house for the quality care my pup received! Thank you Dr. Hilton and Kristin, LVT especially for taking great care of of Lily!Kia B.Kia B. ★★★★★ Going to this veterinary hospital just seemed a lot different, they go way out of there way to make sure that your pet received the best of care,no matter it be a major problem or just a pet grooming. I definitely would recommend this facility 110%tom T.tom T. ★★★★☆ I have been here with my Chihuahua🐕 and years ago with my sons turtle 🐢. Greatfull for their service.M M.M M. ★★★★☆ Dr Cole vet apologized for the delay of Dolce first visit. He checked him throughly and cared for Dolce’s issues.

All of my animals are seen by Dr. Duderstadt. She is a fantastic veterinarian and cares deeply about all of her patients! She went above and beyond for my pets and I know she will for all of my remaining pets. The entire staff is friendly and compassionate, I couldn’t recommend them enough!

We followed Dr. Duderstadt here and couldn’t be more pleased. Everyone is so friendly! I’d follow Dr. Duderstadt anywhere she goes, but I’m happy she’s at Gibraltar!

They were very good to my pups Max and Petey. The boarding experience was great!
Max and Petey came home and appeared relaxed. (They have never been boarded before) The staff was very friendly. They even gave some special attention to my pups when needed.

Michelle B.

It was easy to get an appointment on short notice. We just got a puppy and this was her first experience at the vet. We were greeted as we walked in and helped right away. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They gave her plenty of attention and trimmed her nails without even being asked ( a mini spa treatment). They provided her first doses of heartworm and flea/tick control for free. They offer a puppy package for health care. We had a great experience. The Dr. took his time to explain things and basic care needs for a puppy. We will be back.

Carolyn L.

One of the best experiences I’ve had with a veterinarian. The doctor and staff and very friendly and very accommodating. Our furry friend doesn’t really like being around other animals, so they made sure we got back into an option as quickly as possible, our boy went in for a procedure this past Wednesday and he is doing great!

Nathan W.

Very clean, nice staff and doctors who really care about the animals. We are new but we recently had to call the last minute to get in with our new puppy because of a new issue that had come up and they were easily accommodating putting our minds at ease.
