He has an avid interest dogs and cats.   Over his career he has had a chance to care for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, small ruminants and young calves.  At his prior practice he also served as the back-up practitioner for the practice’s dairy veterinarian, and the ‘go to’ guy for the unusual.

When a baby kitten or puppy is born, its immune system is not yet mature; and therefore, they are vulnerable to infection. Vaccinations reduce that risk drastically.

We've taken all of our dogs to this clinic and have been so happy with the staff. Dr. Cole especially takes such good care of both our dogs and their humans. He's always willing to offer multiple solutions and patiently explains every medication or condition, and thoroughly discusses treatment plans with us. It's obvious that he cares as much for our pets as we do.

Amazing service! We showed up with no appointment, not even being a client because our dog was dying and Dr. McManus left surgery to take care of us. Very thankful to all the staff being so compassionate and helpful

By far, this is the best vet I’ve ever used!  The doctors and staff are friendly and helpful. They always take the time to explain things and make sure I understand what the treatment or procedure is.  They are amazing with my three kitties.  Definitely recommend if you are looking for a new vet!

Dr McManus has been very caring for our Remington with IBS. Takes the time each week to follow up with him and manage his meds for us to get him better well managed. Love that the staff cares and takes time with each pet.

In all fairness' did prepay and schedule for my 11 lb Pomeranian. For practical reasons.Anyways,  I took my dog there and they were great. Very professional. My bill was very reasonable. They are now our new vet. Much thanks for the care.

I called them based on my sister in laws referral. I have never had an experience at any vet in my life of 48 years as I did here with the entire staff! From the initial call to dropping off my beloved dog for cremation, they were all so personable and much more than professional. They were so very compassionate and empathetic. I live in Springfield and yet I will always refer others to this clinic! Top notch!!
