Our comprehensive vet care services range from preventive care to surgical treatments and everything in between. If you’re looking for a trustworthy animal hospital to partner with in the care of your furry friend, Doggie Dude Ranch fits the bill!


As a full-service animal hospital, we offer a wide range of services to meet your pet care needs. Here’s what you can expect from our dedicated veterinary team:

Preventive Care

Preventive vet care services are designed to keep your pet healthy long-term. Wellness exams are at the top of this list. Through wellness exams, our Ames, IA, veterinarian can monitor your pet’s health to curtail problems before they start. Wellness checkups also enable us to spot problems early on before they become major issues that require lengthy, costly treatment. Diagnostics like digital x-rays, bloodwork and ultrasound enable us to make prompt, accurate diagnosis of health issues so we can recommend the appropriate treatment. Parasite control, vaccinations, dental care, and dermatology care are additional preventive care services we provide our canine patients.


We offer core and non-core vaccines to protect your pet against life-threatening diseases. Our veterinarian can help you determine the vaccines best suited for your dog. Puppies are given a series of vaccines to keep them from diseases after they’re weaned from their mother’s milk. These vaccines can commence at 6-8 weeks of age with boosters given every 3-4 weeks until your pup is 16-18 weeks old, after which we’ll create a vaccination schedule to protect his health.

Dental Care

Dogs need healthy teeth and gums for eating, protection and play. Annual dental checkups and cleanings help promote good oral health. Routine dental care helps prevent problems with bleeding gums, tooth infections, and periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss.

Medical treatments

Our staff treats all kinds of canine medical issues, including diabetes, kidney disease, allergies, digestive and respiratory issues, and other conditions.


We perform both selective and urgent surgical treatments, such as spay and neuter surgery, fracture repair, soft tissue surgery, surgery to stop internal bleeding, and foreign body removal to restore intestinal function.

Puppy Care

Our puppy care services include monthly wellness checkups to monitor your puppy’s growth and development, puppy vaccines, behavior and nutritional counseling to monitor your puppy’s diet and more.

Additional services include pet boarding, grooming, emergency care and euthanasia end-of-life care.
