Testimonials


I have trusted Dr. Alber with my 5 Boston Terriers for over 8 years and now they are all seniors and he helps us manage their care as they age. He is the only Dr. I trust to do dental cleanings and general surgery on my dogs. He is truly passionate about caring for animals and if he can’t find an answer on a tough case he calls a specialist who can. I would not trust anyone else in the world to manage the care of my fur babies. Dr. Alber has helped us with the toughest imaginable situations and I can say he is not just our veterinarian but our friend. I always tell people I refer that once they meet him and see how much he and his staff care for your pets and you as a pet owner you would go out of your way just to bring your pets to him.

I am so happy that I was recommended to bring my dog here for his broken leg. Dr. Alber and staff took excellent care of him and explained each treatment plan with me along the way. They went over all pricing and were reasonable. It was easy to book all appointments and Dr. Alber took tons of time with Guppy and us as a family.

They truly care about animals and their customers. Thank you so much!

We are beyond thankful for Dr. Albers. We started bringing our dogs 9 years ago to Dr. Albers when he was at his prior clinic. When I found out he had parted ways with that prior clinic, I was very worried because finding a good vet who is compassionate and knowledgeable like Dr. Albers is nearly impossible. It took us years to find him 9 years ago and we certainly didn’t want to lose him now. Before we found Dr. Albers we had dealt with unscrupulous vets, who just poked and prodded our dogs. I felt like these other vets saw our dogs as dollar signs and there were lots of return visits with more poking and prodding, no results and our dogs were miserable and it was expensive. All that ceased when Dr. Albers started taking care of our dogs. He explains everything in detail and comes in with several ideas on how to best treat them and what I love about him is he has a no bull approach. He does not try to up sell me on things I don’t need. I felt his prices were fair. His focus is 100% on what is best for my dog and my dog’s comfort.

Lucky for us, Dr. Albers has opened Higley Groves Animal Hospital. I am so happy! I brought Murphy (our 12 year old Golden) in today for some senior medical issues. The minute I walked through the door, I felt like I was home. I was greeted by his wonderful receptionist, Kay, who instantly remembered us, Murphy and our prior Goldens. She even came around the desk to stay hello and pet Murphy. Dr. Albers sets the bar on how a veterinarian should be and how an office should be run. His staff consists of the kindest professionals; I didn’t remember Tammy, our vet tech, because she was in the back at the other clinic, but I was impressed when I found out that staff has followed him who has been with him for a long time. That says a lot about the type of person Dr. Albers is. Dr. Albers and his staff treat Murphy (as well as all of our prior Goldens) like they are their own pets. When I had to make the difficult decision in the past to put my dogs down, due to cancer, age, and their quality of life vs. quantity of life, Dr. Albers was right there with me, no judging and assuring me I was making the right although heart wrenching decision. When I had to put down Ginger, who was one of my sweetest Goldens, he was right there, after she passed, I looked up and I saw the tears in his eyes as well. A week later, I received a condolence card from him and his staff. I still have it and the others they sent me. It really touched me and I will never forget his compassion. Dr. Albers has called me over the years to check on my dogs after surgery and any blood work. He is truly an amazing and caring veterinarian. There is a saying, do what you love and the rest will follow. Dr. Albers this is definitely you. Thanks again Dr. Albers, Murphy is very relaxed and is already feeling better!

This is the best vet I have ever been to! Dr Alber is the bomb! I took my boston terrier Ester here for a teeth cleaning. She also had to have 9 teeth pulled. He took extra time out of his busy day to explain everything to me and answer ALL of my many questions. Not once did I feel rushed. This place is very affordable and I couldn’t be happier with the results of her cleaning. I would also like to mention that the staff is superb! Natalie was especially helpful.

Everything that Dr. Alber says about his animal hospital is the truth. For over 18 years I have entrusted my pets in his care. One of our dogs is a bit hostile to put it mildly, but Dr. Alber never complains. He has a huge heart and Dr. freeman is also a sweetheart. Absolutely love these Veterinarians! I don’t care how far I drive, my pets are my babies and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I’ve known Dr Alber for well over 12 years. I would not ever bring my pets to anyone else. Not only is he and his staff very good at what they do. They care for your pet as if they were their own. What I like most about Dr Alber is his honest no nonsense approach to his practice. He goes above and beyond for you and your pet. Thanks Guys for all your hard work.

We have been seeing Dr. Alber for around 20 years now. The superior and honest care that he and his staff have given and know, will continue to give our furry family members always helps put my mind at ease knowing that he, his wife Dr. Freeman and his staff always have my pets’ best interests at heart. Thank you Higley Groves Animal Hospital!

I was referred to Dr Alber by a friend and I’m SO GLAD that I took my dog to him! He is a wonderful and caring vet; he just wants the best for your dog and for you. He cares about his pet parents too! He takes the time to explain everything and let you know what your options are. And he takes as much time as you need to answer your questions. And if you forget to ask something while you’re there, he says you can always call. Dr Alber is very friendly and kind, and from my in-depth visit today, it is easy to see that he is very knowledgeable. I also want to mention the other 2 staff members I interacted with today because they are both wonderful too! Kay at the front desk is very sweet and kind, and Natalia, who came in to meet my dog and me and to take her temperature and run a couple of tests on her, was very loving and gentle with her and you can see she loves to care for animals. I’m so thankful to my friend Daniela for referring me to Higley Groves Animal Hospital!
