  • "We were in town visiting my grandmother and our dog had been dealing with an anal gland issue for a couple weeks. We had visited other vets (spent quite a bit of money) and she still wasn't healing. She looked to be getting worse so we called around a few other vets in the Lincoln area and was sort of brushed aside and told they were too busy with no suggestion as to where else to go. When we called Yankee Hill they were so sweet and accommodating. They let us bring her in right away."
    Paige
  • "We took our standard poodle to Yankee Hill after having a bad experience with another vet in town. He was taken care of very well and we were quite pleased with each of the vets we saw. When we finally had to put down our beloved pet, the care we got during the procedure was so comforting and peaceful. What a blessing to have kind, thoughtful care even at the end."
