“I can't say enough about Dr. Limpach and the staff at Angelcare...I felt like my previous vet wasn't helping and I turned to a specialist, Dr. Melodie Limpach at Angelcare. I drive 73 miles one way to see her and my dog has made a full recovery and is no longer scratching, all within about a month of treatment."

Virtual Appointments

Some conditions require immediate attention and other need a more personal touch, that's why we offer both virtual and at-home visits. Introductory meetings, dermatology intake, even diet recommendations can be done virtually, while you may want Dr. Limpach to come to you for hospice care or euthanasia. We can work with you to decide the best course of action.
