I have dealt with probably 10 different vets since i have owned my first dog some 20 years ago. Dr. Dexter and her crew are, without a doubt, the best I have come across. She has helped me through the loss of 2 dogs over the years and continues to keep my current monsters healthy and happy. If your worried about the cost of a "home" vet, vs sitting in a waiting room forever while your dog drools and loses hair from nerves, don't! she is reasonably priced. I've definitely been to vets that cost more locally and also had to deal with the hassle. My dane is bigger than most people, and not having to move him makes life so much easier, but we use Capital for even the small one. Just a great group of knowledgeable people. You won't regret giving them a shot.read more

Testimonials

  • "Thank you! I’ve used other home vets but you are by far the best."
    Nadine G.
  • "I can’t tell you how grateful we are that we have such awesome vets! Your patience, communication, and above-and-beyond care is just incredible, and I know Hammie and Bear are in great hands."
    Jena W.
  • "Dr. Anderson is one of the most caring vets we’ve known. Even our 18-year old cat, Oliver, immediately took to her–he articulated his affection very loudly and showed his appreciation by sharing something of a personal nature. Despite all of that, Natasha called him a “good boy.” We love Dr. Anderson!"
    Fred & Barbara W.
