Thank you for coming to our website to learn more about us. I can assure you we appreciate it and we would like it even more if we can ever meet face to face. But sadly you have so little to go on before you decide on choosing a veterinarian that I am going to try to help you. You are welcome to snoop around and look at the website, but frankly that won't give you the information you need to make such an important decision.

There are also many hidden gifts and surprises in the nooks and crannies of the website so enjoy! Happy hunting!

YOU MAY THINK I AM ONLY TRYING TO GET YOU TO BECOME A CLIENT- but the truth is I am far more interested in educating people and making friends. The idea is to have fun visiting us and enjoy the learning experience. Becoming a client is not for everyone and frankly we can reach far more people virtually than we can see in a day. But we welcome anyone and everyone to join us virtually - tell your friends!

Testimonials

  • "I appreciated the time Doctor N. and his staff at Safari took with us. He personally took the extra time to make sure that I understand everything that is taking place.-"
    Bridget Catledge
  • "I needed to find an animal clinic, being from North Dakota and I didn't know where to go. As we were driving I had seen the clinic. We stopped in and everyone was so nice and friendly, I would and will keep telling others about Safari Animal Clinic, and how it is a very good place to go when your animal needs medical attention. -"
    C. Buerkle
  • "We found a little sickly stray. He has since become our special little dog since Dr. Nelmapius had to do several surgeries on him to fix major damage from abuse that he received before he found us. I have often said I wish I had a Doctor for my health issues that is as dedicated to each of his patients as Dr Nelmapius."
    Fred and Joyce Pennington
  • "I really liked the attention, including the details, from Doctor N. I also liked the check-up phone calls from Christina and the other caring staff.-"
    Brittany Caddic
  • "I must mention Liz. Such a wonderful loving person and dear friend. Liz drove all the way to my house to bring me medicine that I needed for my very sick Shih Tzu, Bijou. She also was so caring to a little stray dog that found us one morning and was in need of special attention. That little dog was in terrible shape and she cleaned him up for us and comforted him."
    Fred and Joyce Pennington
  • "When my dog Blackie was diagnosed with severe pancreatitis, Dr. Nelmapius prescribed a strict treatment plan but also course of laser therapy. Every time he gets the therapy I can immediately tell he just feels better and after each treatment I could see improvement and the outbreaks have become less frequent and less intense almost to the point of a complete cure."
