I have taken all of my pets to this location since childhood. I now live in Chicago, and I still take my dog back to this location because of the high quality of care, great prices, and excellent service.
My Boston Terrier LOVES his visits to West Branch Animal clinic--the staff is awesome and take great care of him every time. Highly recommended for short term boarding needs/just outside of Iowa City and very reasonable priced!
Been to quite a few vets before and honesty the drive to West Branch is worth the high quality of expertise, combined with compassion and the best service around! Everyone that works here wants to be helpful and do whatever they can to help! They even do their best to work with you if you need to budget anything out too!
Everyone who works at this clinic is fantastic. They are great with scheduling appointments in a timely manner, and all the vets there are super down to earth, friendly, and reasonably priced. It's totally worth the drive from Iowa City to support this clinic. Also - they will keep you from spending more money than you need to by spreading out vaccines, and only giving necessary medications (unlike to many Iowa City clinics...)
Dr. Beyer is an outstanding vet and human being - kind, compassionate, open-hearted, reality-based. He cares about his animal patients and extends that to their human caretakers. The clinic staff is friendly and helpful, they don't try to see you things you don't need, and I appreciate that the clinic is clean, but not fancied up. If I could give West Branch Animal Clinic 10 stars, I would.
We have been using West Branch Animal Clinic since 1990, and I can't come up with enough superlatives to describe the kindness of these people. Dr. Beyer is wise and compassionate, and even shed a tear with us when he helped ease our dog out of this world. The staff goes out of their way to give information and accomodate my schedule and needs. Even the happy, mellow cat draped over the counter is exceptional. I love this place.
I have taken all my dogs to them. They actually enjoy going to the vet. Cooper had some teeth removed and being that he is pretty old I fretted all day. But he is like new again, and feels soooooo much better now that those bad teeth are gone. They really take good care of them, wouldn't take them anywhere else.
I've been to a lot of vets over the years - nothing compares to this clinic. The front desk staff are extremely knowledgable, helpful and friendly. The vets are second to none. And the prices are extremely fair. I don't live particularly close to this clinic - but it is worth the drive. They always find room on the schedule to get me in for emergencies or last minute appointments too. Highly recommended.
Dr. Beyer's 'petside' manner is the best around. He's honest, caring, compassionate, realistic and will always give your animal the best care possible whether it is a hamster or a 1200 pound steer. He also takes the time to educate you. Dr. Samuelson is also very knowledgeable and helpful. Great staff, too, always pleasant and accommodating.
Thanks Dr. Beyer for helping to form a solid plan for my Corgi who has a torn ACL. I was concerned that surgery (recommended by a different vet) was not necessarily the way to go. I am confident that Roy will have a good recovery and am happy to have Dr. Beyer on our team!
We are moving our horse from Salt Lake City, UT to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Dr. Samuelson came out to see our mare that was not doing right. Met us at a Theison's to check her out. Gave us a good exam and is watching her over night. Thank you so much for the excellent care!

West Branch Animal Clinic has been my vet since the 1980s.
Dr. Beyer is a compassionate, honest, common-sense veterinarian that cares for his patients and their owners.
Although it is a long drive, he and Dr. Samuelson come to rural Williamsburg to care for my horses and sheep.
The clinic has done an excellent job bringing in interns and other temporary practitioners over the years.
The clinic has very high standards for the quality of care that its staff provides.
We adopted one of their feline 'adoptees' and Chester has been a wonderful addition to our home.
It is wonderful to have an equine veterinarian (Dr. Samuelson) that rides on a regular basis.
We are considering moving out of state and will miss this veterinary clinic if we do. They will be hard to replace.
I have always taken my pets to this clinic since moving to West Branch in 1999. Both Dr Beyer and Dr. Samuelson are outstanding doctors and the staff members are all very caring and kind hearted. there is no better animal clinic in Southwest iowa and i recommend this place to anyone who loves their pets.

I brought my 2 year old colt to Dr. Samuelson for crypt orchid surgery as it's hard to find a vet to take on this procedure. I was totally impressed with him! He was so professional and experienced with horses. He took the time to explain things as he was doing it and answered every question we had. His staff is great to work with too! I highly recommend West Branch Animal Clinic! Thanks so much Dr. Samuelson!!!!
