Veterinary Clinic in Des Moines, IA


Welcome to Southview Animal Clinic.

Southview Animal Clinic was established in 1979 by Dr. Philip Gustafson. Dr. Gustafson is a graduate of Iowa State University's College of Veterinary Medicine. After receiving his degree, he spent one year in a 4-doctor practice in Miami, Florida, and four years with Dr. Dale Briley on Army Post Road. After gaining extensive experience in medicine and surgery from these two busy practices, he started his own veterinary clinic. Southview Animal Clinic has been at the same location in the south side of Des Moines, IA since then.
Dog in Surgery - Vet Hospital in Des Moines, IA
Our approach has always been to practice state-of-the-art veterinary medicine and surgery while providing old-fashioned one on one care. We take time to listen to your concerns and treat your pets as we would treat our own. When you bring your pet in, you will see Dr. Gustafson on every visit so that you and your pet are not constantly seeing a new doctor.
We don't rely on advertising or marketing techniques to attract new clients to our clinic. More than 90% of our new clients come to us because they were referred to us by a satisfied client. We also strive to keep our clients informed of up-to-date information on veterinary topics through our blog and Facebook page.
