So glad to see such a wonderful practice open in Hampden! Dr. Papke is a tremendous asset to this animal loving community! I have worked with her over several years and highly recommend her to anyone who loves their pet!
I’ve been going to Kelly for years at other vest she worked for. I am so excited she is going to have her own clinic! I assure you if I still lived in Baltimore my 5 girls would be her first patients. Best of luck Kelly!
She's amazing! I've been going to Dr. Papke for at least 14 years. I'm on my 4th dog under her care.
