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.
