“When I created this business, it was founded on a mission and a set of values. Through all the growth, change, and creative endeavors, I have kept coming back around to that mission and those values,” said Dr. Kristin Engel.
Those values include providing top-notch care at an affordable price for some of Omaha’s most treasured citizens- our pets.
At most veterinary clinics, you’ll find the staff performing routine care such as vaccinations, nail trims and the occasional x-ray. When Dr. Engel opened Good Samaritan Pet Doctor in 2015, she specialized in surgical and dental care alone, helping to close a critical gap in Omaha’s veterinary needs.
By limiting the scope of services, GSPD is able to keep their costs low and pass on the savings to clients. This results in the most affordable surgery and dental care in Omaha, without compromising quality.
“We have a fantastic group of team members that all care deeply about pets and their owners. We build an individualized relationship with each pet owner, helping to address any fears, worries, or concerns.”
Located at 4847 N 72nd Street, Good Samaritan Pet Doctor is a vital resource in Omaha, Nebraska, and the country. With a unique business model not found anywhere else, pet owners have made cross-country trips to Omaha for life-saving surgeries. Their services are straightforward and their prices are all-inclusive so pet owners know exactly what to expect.
By making lifesaving and life-extending surgery and dental care possible for all pets, they help to put an end to economic euthanasia and pet abandonment.
