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. Dr. Waggoner was so kind and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back! -Amanda W.
Very friendly & courteous front desk; offer excellent service; extremely thorough, nice, educated veterinarians; clean facility. -Jamie H.
It was the cleanest vet office I have ever been into. Dr Mark answered all of my questions and even answered questions I had about my other 2 dogs. The medicine that she was given is working great. -Amy C.
Our family LOVES Tender Care Animal Hospital for all of our needs! Day care, boarding, vet care, and grooming. Ruby LOVES to go to "school" and eagerly waits each morning to see if she gets to go! We couldn't be happier with Tender Care! -Jennie W.
You guys are great!! I don't know what Zoe Cookie and I would do without Tender Care and all the wonder staff and doctors. -Robin P.

I recently moved to Morton and was looking for a local vet. I am so glad we found Tender Care. They'll be our vet for the lifetime of my dog. -Michael K.
We love the attention and concern Dr. PJ Klopfenstein has always shown for our Maggie, Golden Retriever, with all her skin and allergy issues. He is the best! -Ken & Denise M.
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!
My reason for ranking the team very high is that you people make a real life difference for animals. The entire team puts a lot out to have a place in practice animal wellness. All of us and our pets are grateful. -Kevin W.
We Love Dr. PJ. He's been looking after our cats for years. He shows concern, listens and is very helpful.

It was very pleasant! Our dog seemed to enjoy it also. I do have to say the grooming was possibly the best she has ever had! And she's 11 this month. -Mamie E.
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. It makes it easier for me to work and run errands when I know they are being watched over. You have a great staff, they have always been friendly, and I know my littles guys are in good hands. Nancy S.
Wonderful! Everyone we met was professional. Great to our little puppy and so helpful to us new dog owners. -Jackie and Yohan A.
I can't say enough about how impressed my husband and I were with the time Dr. Larson spent with us discussing our recently adopted dog from TAPS and the fact that she tested heartworm positive. -Kim L.
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! I have had appointments with Drs. Klopenstien, Lyons, and Waggoner. They were all wonderful. -Elisa R.****Morton
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.
I appreciate the patience and time to listen to our concerns. The recommendations were also direct, thought out and which I really appreciate. Had a wonderful experience, thank you. -Carrie G.
Great! We have used many of your services so far and are excited to have a place like Tender Care that does so many things in a town the size of Morton! -Lauren P.
It was good very. Having never left my Bella with anyone except family, I was a bit nervous. She seemed to do well. I will definitely bring Bella again. I felt the facility was exceptionally clean and well organized. Loved that each pet has an individual space. -Bonnie F.
Very good! The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the dogs were clean and happy. Great job! -Neil and Jody V.
My experience is always great here whether I come in or call and ask questions on the phone. The staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable. You guys are seriously the best I've ever been to! You're always great with working with your clients' schedule or really on anything! You can tell you guys care and I always leave happy. I know I never have to worry about a thing. -Kelly H.
Love the facility!! Clean. Very professional and friendly, caring staff. Would absolutely refer family and friends to this facility. Wonderful and knowledgeable. -Dawn N.
Very satisfied with Dr. Larson. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated to helping Chanel receive the best level of insulin for quality of life. Also appreciate the friendly and animal-loving staff in the daycare/boarding/grooming services areas. -Sue W.
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 loved seeing pictures of Kya on Facebook during her stay. Knowing she was being played with and cared for by such friendly staff made it easier to be away. -Haley H.
Wonderful! I picked up Violet from boarding and she looked extremely happy. Thank you for taking such good care of her. -Taylor O.
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.
