Our purpose is to provide your pet with the most professional and highest quality medical and surgical care that is available, with individual attention to your pets needs.
The beloved Gentle Doctor statue stands in the Veterinary Court at Iowa State University where Dr. Pribyl graduated from Veterinary school. The statue was sculpted by Christian Petersen who came to Iowa State in 1934. The statue was made in the likeness of Charles H. Stange, then Dean of the Veterinary College. The statue of the Gentle Doctor has become a member and a symbol of the Veterinary Profession.
Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital:
Where the Emotional and Physical Health of
your pet is foremost!
A warm friendly environment is very much a part of Dr. Pribyls approach to Veterinary Medicine. We provide our patients with an environment that suits their sensitive nature. We also advise our client on the nutritional needs of pets, preventive health care and general home safety and maintenance. We have been recognized in the Veterinary Economics Magazine for hospital design.
Because we spend 365 days a year here at the hospital caring for pets, we maintain an immaculate hospital with an atmosphere that is calming and soothing.
We have voluntarily complied with the high standards of the American Animal Hospital Association and have qualified as an A.A.H.A Member Hospital. We are accredited at the highest level. These standards apply to Gentle Doctor Animal Hospitals equipment, practice standards and management. Evidence of compliance is through periodic inspection and examination by A.A.H.A field representatives.
