“When I adopted my rescued greyhound I knew I would need a caring and competent vet. On a recommendation, I went to Sauk Point and saw Dr. Collins. Then, and at every visit since, I have been so very, very impressed with Dr. Collins’ skill, her demeanor and her compassion for my “special needs” dog. I would unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Collins to any pet owner. She is the best.”

“It’s been such a pleasure bringing our new puppy, Lucy, to your clinic over the past few months. You and your staff have been immensely helpful with excellent suggestions, advice and general encouragement. You have successfully created a warm environment in your clinic, one that feels community centered and patient driven. I can’t tell you how much this positive experience has meant to us. Being a newcomer to the joys of puppy/dog owning, you’ve helped ease some anxiety about the health and well being for our puppy. More specifically, I have appreciated the enthusiasm in which we are greeted every time we come; the fact that we never have to wait to be seen by either the Dr. or CVT; the undivided attention we are paid during a visit; how thorough Dr. Collins is during an examination and also her commitment to answering all of my questions and discussing, at length all possibilities, suggestions and advice.

Thank you! We look forward to having you and your staff care for Lucy for years to come.”

This letter was sent to us after we emailed to check on how her pet was doing:
“Thanks for checking in. Schnitz is doing much, much better! Dr. Collins did such a great job with him and with explaining everything to us. We really felt Schnitz was taken care of. On the whole, he’s his rambunctious self again!”

“Just wanted to tell you all how grateful and thankful I am to all of you for your patience and help with Smokey over the last few weeks. Her energy is back to normal, she’s eating her dry food and drinking normally again. It is so great to see her back to her normal self. Thank you – all of you for being there for us and helping us to find the answers. Again I cannot express how thankful I am for your support and your perseverance to find the cause of her illness.”

~ Kathryn


“I have had the pleasure of Dr. Collins caring for my pets. Her thoroughness and sincere concern over each and every one of them far exceeds the norm. After my animals’ visits, if there is a problem with one of them, I will always get a follow-up phone call from Dr. Collins asking how my pet is doing. I don’t even get that from my own doctor! Even though Dr. Collins has moved her practice farther from my home, I will remain with her, since I feel so confident in her as a DVM.”

~ Gail

“I have total trust in Dr. Collins and her staff at Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Collins and her staff are always there to answer questions no matter how minor. I wouldn’t take my boxers anywhere else.”

“Hello, my name is Henry. I am a big boy, a 190 # Great Dane with some physical issues & health problems. Dr. Collins is so cool; she gets on the floor with me, holds me and talks to me like I am her favorite patient. I use to see her at the other clinic but I was very happy to move “with” her to her new pretty clinic. She has this big room for big guys like me so I never feel afraid. What is neat is when she takes my blood (which I never feel) or if she has to do any lab work on me, she has all of this great new equipment that she can read my results right away. Dr. Collins and her staff make certain that I am up to date on all of the shots that I need and the medication I take for my bad knee. I have told my Mom & Dad that I never want to see any other doctor and wish to keep seeing the friendly staff at Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic. They are the best!”

~ Joe and Linda

“My three dogs, which are very important to me, are in the hands of the best care we have found. Dr. Collins is such a personal vet. She treats us like family each time we enter her office and even when we see her out and about she remembers our dogs and asks about them. We now drive further for appointments but it is well worth the extra effort. After all we want the best for our little friends. She explains in detail each procedure so we understand what is being done. Her staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the facility is state of the art. We have received the best quality care we could ask for and we see it in the behavior of our animals at home. I would recommend to everyone that care about their pets to give the Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic staff a chance to show you what quality care is really about, I did and don’t regret my decision. Best wishes to you and your staff, Dr. Collins.”

~ John Viney owner of 3 Dachshunds and 1 Pyrenees mix – Roscoe, Zoe, Stella and Dottie

“Dr. Collins and her staff understand that taking care of a pet also means taking care of the pet’s owner. They are superb at both…my pets have received the best professional care, and, as their owner, I’ve been listened to and treated with respect and kindness. I recommend Dr. Collins and her clinic without reservation.”

~ Susan

“I feel very fortunate to have Dr Collins as my “family” vet over the past eight years. She is an excellent veterinarian and it is evident that she loves all animals, but she really makes every patient feel like they are her number one priority. During the time I have known Kristine, I have lost a 13 year old and a 16 year old cocker spaniel. She was she an excellent care giver during their elder years, and went above and beyond to research and provide options for giving the best possible quality of life when health issues arose. She followed up on their treatment between visits and kept her eye out for new advances, treatments and medicine available. And, when the time came, I could not have asked for anyone more helpful in making the decision to let them go humanely and without pain or suffering. On a more positive note, I now have two much younger, healthier girls and we plan to go the extra mile(s) to Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic to make sure that they have that extra special treatment that we have come to appreciate from Dr Collins.”

“By far the best veterinary clinic I’ve ever been to. Dr. Collins is amazing — very smart, excellent “bedside” (dogside?) manner, and she’s available evenings/weekends on an after-hours line. I’ve called that line several times, as a hypochondriacally dog person, and Dr. Collins is uniformly helpful, responsive, and whip smart. Cannot recommend her enough, and I would similarly assume that any vet she feels is sufficiently skilled to work at Sauk Point must also be exemplary.”

~ Nicole

“Dr. Collins and Dr. Pike are exceptional in the care they provide to animals. Dr. Collins and the staff went above and beyond when my poor Voodoo and Squiggles were ill. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an exceptional veterinarian and excellent staff..this is the place to be! Thank you for everything!”


“This is the best vet we have ever taken our animals too. There is so much love and care that goes into each visit and we all appreciate it so much. I would recommend Sauk Point to anyone looking for a veterinarian.”
