I was so impressed by all of your staff on an impromptu visit. The receptionists and schedulers were friendly and helpful. Great first impression. And Dr Frazier is amazing! I’m switching all of our pets over to you from another vet. Such a great fit.
We're new to the area, and very protective of our girl Hershey! Since we moved here we have been driving back to Canton for her Doctor needs. A few months ago I decided to try Tender Care, as we drove past it almost everyday. I was amazed at Dr. LARSON, and his complete STAFF! I have always groomed our girl, but after meeting and being showed around the building, HERSHEY now goes there for all her grooming and medical needs. When I pick her up, she appears to be one HAPPY LITTLE GAL! We never have left her with anyone, but now we feel like we have a very caring, safe extended family, that really cares about ALL our baby's needs!
Dr. Larson is the best - Truly loves animals and cares about the pet and owners as well! I would recommend Tender Care to everyone! -Billy R.
I had Scooter in for grooming. Debbie is excellent with dogs! Will continue to see her as long as I have a pet. -Joe S. [Peoria Location]
Dr. Mark was very sweet to Astro and took great care of him. He was very personable, and even called me the next day to check how Astro was doing. You can tell he loves his career and truly cares for the animals' safety! -Ashley P.
It's by far the best vet I have ever been to! The staff is amazing. The doctors incredible! They are very compassionate and truly care about our animals. They take time and explain everything in a way we understand. Follow up call extra touch!
Tender Care did an absolutely amazing job or grooming my two Saint Bernard’s!!! I have never seen them look this good!!! Thank You!!! - Roslyn W.
Were extremely helpful when we finally found Crosby, our cat, after being lost for 5 days. Got us right in and explained everything we would need to do to get him back in shape. Could not have been better. -Cheryl J.
I LOVE Tendercare and trust them totally with my precious fur babies! We have received excellent, professional care for all three of my babies and the doctors and staff care for them as if we are part of a family. God Bless them! -Judith S.
Warm welcoming environment and staff. Dr. Mark followed up personally on my visit the next day to check on Jack. You can feel how much the staff cares and loves their work and the animals. Great place, Great staff, A+++ clinic. -William D.
The staff are wonderful, and I mean all of them! Every time I am in they are always smiling and friendly, and when you have questions for the vets they actually call you back to discuss it and answer any follow up questions - You guys are the best! I really meant it when I said you guys are the best - Rascal has gotten excellent care from everyone there and I know that when I need to bring him in, I know I'm going to get the best care and I'm going to get an honest answer when I ask questions. A while back I had to bring him in for an issue he was having and Dr Mark gave me his cell phone number in case I needed to reach him on the weekend. I didn't figure I'd need it, but no other vet has ever done that. What was even better was that he called me to check on my dog. I was amazed at how much he cared to call me on a Saturday afternoon to check on my dog. It was amazing, and it's one of the reasons my pets will always go to Tender Care when they need anything. Thanks again for reaching out, and thanks also for being part of the awesome team that cares for my beloved fur child! -Michael B.
We could not be more thankful for finding Tender Care and Dr. Larson. The attention and care both he and his staff gave Tank made us feel very comfortable in knowing that our baby was going to be taken care of.
Knowledgeable staff that goes above and beyond!! I always know I’m in good hands, no matter which veterinarian I see! Highly recommended!!
All the people there from the receptionist to the vets in Morton have always been extremely nice and given my pets the very best care.
Chloe likes it here. Everybody was very friendly and made her feel safe. Dr Amy fixed her ear in a week after battling an infection for 5 weeks with another vet. We will recommend them and plan to return for any future health needs. -Shana M.
I had a wonderful experience with Tendercare. It shows through and through from the front desk through the visit and check out that the Tendercare staff is truly there for the animals. Our needs were met and everyone was exceptionally friendly. -Bobbi W.
I felt both my pet and myself were treated with respect and were not merely a number passing through the door. We have lived all over the country and never had a vet and team genuinely care for our fur baby like Tendercare. -Margo D.
I cannot express enough how much I love Tender Care. I took my puppy here to have her spayed and was so impressed that they were my first call when she wasn't feeling well. We will definitely be back! -Amanda W.

Awesome! 1 of the 2 clinics I use! The other one is Tender Care Peoria! Wouldn't dream to take my fur baby any where else! Tops in my book as they go up and beyond to keep my little one happy! Recommend highly of both places!

I'm so happy to have found Tender Care. It's been a good opportunity for my dogs to socialize with other dogs and people.

Very good, I had visited the facility prior to bringing Mercy and saw that it was super-clean and well-staffed. I loved the idea of giving all boarding pets playtime in the enclosed pens which were watched continually by staff. -Carol R.
You take care of my dog as if it's your own, friendly staff and great service!
Very good. Dr. Larson saw us on very little notice and was very nice. We will definitely be coming to you as our vet in the future. Greg B.
Great. We were able to call and check on our 13 year old dog during our stay and we didn't just get a "she's doing fine". They let us know how she was eating, resting, and how her new experience with doggy daycare went. Sadly we lost our Casey to natural causes 6 weeks after her stay there. It was a relief to us that we boarded her in such a caring, attentive place while we were on vacation with her being a senior girl. Thank you!! -Kim and Steve M.
Incredibly friendly staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. Excellent groom, as usual. -Belinda S.

Great! Friendly and fast. Several people remembered my dog from over a year ago before I adopted her. It was nice to see how much they care. -Shane B.
Excellent! I have never met more loving and generous people from Dr. Mark to Di to Hannah in grooming to the front desk staff. You all went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined and supported us in our decision to find a better home for our baby girl. You truly care about pets, and it shows. I have been referring pet owners to your clinic and plan on visiting with our next puppy! -Alyssa A.

I have been very pleased! From the people that greet me and Greyson in the AM to the kennel staff at night, they are all high caliber people and really seem to love their jobs. -Beth and Jeff S.
Amazing - I was nervous for my cats procedure and everyone was very nice. The doctor explained everything to me and walked me through what each charge was for. The other vet I went to for another opinion was not like that at all. This was our first time to Tender Care and I'm sure it won't be our last!! -Jen P.
Superb!! Chelsey Schmidgall is an amazing groomer. Our dogs love Chelsey and we have taken them to different groomers, but none compare to Chelsey. -Diana A.******* MORTON
Thank you so much for being willing to look at Tuxedo even though he's not your patient. He was with me on a Saturday morning when I got into a car accident and you were one of the only vets open!! Thank you! Again!! -Renee F.
