If you live in Indianola or the surrounding area and need a trusted veterinary team to care for your pets- look no further. All Creatures Small Animal Hospital was established in 1992 when Dr. Camille Telleen opened the clinic in the building of a former (human) doctors office. It has operated continuously since then as an owner operated private practice.

We provide full service small animal veterinary care including routine medical, surgical and dental procedures. We also have a boarding facility with a large fenced in exercise yard and a newly remodeled grooming facility (operated independently by Jenny’s Pet Grooming)

We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pet. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential for your animals. If you have questions, call (515)-961-7882 or contact us [email protected]  and we’ll promptly get back to you. Our veterinary office is very easy to get to- Just check out the map below!

At  All Creatures Small, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

  • Lou

    Meow, My name is Lou. I came to the clinic in October of 2006 when I was about 1 year old. I had been hanging around the home of a client of All Creatures Small, trying to work my way into their house. The cat who already lived there ungraciously declined my moving in. My hobbies include trying to care for young kittens, shedding on the receptionist's computers and asking loudly with my unique yowling to be let repetitively into and out of cupboards and closets.

  • Jeremiah

    Meow, My name is Jeremiah. I came to live at All Creatures Small in 2004 when I got kicked out of my house by someone (to put it politely) who was not a cat person. Although I am an old man now, I still can discipline unruly dogs, jump up on counters to knock over the treat jar and sit on the window sills to sun myself. My hobbies are begging at lunchtime and sleeping. I also like to demand that water is spilled into the catch tray of the water cooler so I can have fresh.

  • Mama

    Meow, My very original name is Mama. I arrived at All Creatures Small in the fall of 2014 with a kitten in tow. He was later adopted out, but I decided to stay, mainly because I enjoy the wide variety of cat and dog diets available for me to sample. My hobbies include tearing into bags of said diets to release the contents for taste testing, thus rendering the bag unsaleable. The most expensive diets are my favorite of course. I also like to swipe food out of patients food bowls when I can reach it and playing fetch with foil balls. Did I mention I am a polydactyl, which means I have extra toes!

  • "Not my regular vet but I had a Saturday morning dog emergency. Without any hesitation they told me to bring her in, they'd check her out between appointments. But there was no waiting - they got to her right away. AND they followed up with me the next Monday. Great care and affordable! They're now my regular vet."
