  • "Thank you Dr. Kauffman for your kindness with my sick hen, Wendy. It means a lot to me that you were willing to take care of my chicken, and even after hours!"
    Chelsea Reichard / Stevensville
  • "Burnt Fork Vet Clinic is reliable in responding to our needs for veterinary services, whether for our ponies, dog, cats or chickens. Dr. Kauffman understands the value each of these critters has to us on an emotional level and is there to offer her sympathy and support when tough decisions have to be made."
    Olive Parker / Stevensville
  • "This is a great place to bring your beloved pets. They are quick to schedule an appointment, you are greeted in such a friendly manner when you come in, both the techs and Dr. Bull listen thoroughly while you describe your pet's condition, and then they genuinely seem to want to make your pet
    (and thus you) feel better. And at the end of the visit the cost is very reasonable, AND you get a taffy candy for yourself to top it all off, lol. A very pleasant visit for both me and my dog."
    Dianne Mefford
  • "Dr. Linda has seen two of my three dogs, donkeys, and goats. She’s great with all, very informational, and realistic on your needs. The staff is so great with my dogs, and I’m hoping with time my dog Thor will get better about the vets office since the staff is so friendly and understanding with him. This office really cares about your pets and the vet care is outstanding."
    Christina Johnson

  • "Burnt fork vet is outstanding. From upon checking the staff was friendly,
    professional, and a good old country hospitality! The reception area and
    the rooms are superior and clean! The place is quiet so my fur baby timber
    wasn't stressed out at all! I didn't have to drag her through the door she
    walked in like we were going to petsmart! Dr. Bull and her assistant were
    informational, kind, and really can tell they are not only about your
    animal but you and your family as well! I haven't had better vet care
    anywhere! Definitely will be passing all there information to anyone I come
    in contact with looking for a vet! You definitely get what you pay for and
    the price is very reasonable!!"
