Greetings,

The purpose of this posting is to give our evaluation of Dr. James (Dr. Jimmy) Sparks as it pertains to his work and treatment of our many animals over the past thirty some-odd years.

We call him “Dr. Jimmy” because we had him as a student when we were 8th grade math teachers.

Even back then, he stood out like a candle in the darkness. He was an excellent student.

Then we started running into him when we’d take our many pets to the Eagle Animal Hospital for treatment of their many various and sometimes-mysterious ills. This included a 25-pound pet goose (AKA Gertrude) that for some reason got herself paralyzed and couldn’t walk. Dr. Jimmy figured that one out, and he was right.

Over the years he became our personal Vet for all our assorted cats, dogs, ducks, geese and anything else that attached itself to us. Dr. Jimmy gave us professional and more importantly PERSONAL treatment. My wife and I are both in our late 60s. We have had a LOT of our beloved pets go to Dr. Jimmy when they were kittens and puppies through the final agonizing moments when Dr. Jimmy said, “It’s time to let them go.”

Even in those emotionally wrenching times, Dr. Jimmy would sit on the floor with Ralph, Mandy, Molly, Mickey, Myrtle, Melvin, Maggie, Baggy, Gus, Gertrude, Sheba, Romeo and some others whose names now escape me. With great compassion, while we were leaking tears all over the examining room, Dr. Jimmy would lead our pets to the great playground in heaven where they were always young, full of piss and vinegar and ready to play with all the rest of our beloved pets who were already up there.

We drive by more than six different veterinary offices to get to Dr. Jimmy and have never been tempted to stop at any of them.

In other words…. Dr. James Sparks is the BEST VET.

Jim has been our veterinarian for close to 20 years. As animal lovers we have always had a pack of dogs, as many as 3 at one time. His sensitivity and compassion show through greatly both with his handling of animals as well as their owners. This attitude is pervasive throughout his practice and if Jim is not there, the other vets don't miss a beat. In addition to being my vet, I consider Jim a friend. We have had meetings to discuss family and business and we belong to the same church and other organizations that allow us to spend time together outside of Eagle Animal hospital. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that we took to Seattle. To make a long story short he ate a mushroom, went into cardiac arrest and was declared dead for a short time. After CPR revived him he spent several days in a comatose state and Jim communicated with the Seattle vets and then with me several times a day. Bailey recovered and is very happy. I owe a lot of that to Jim. When they were ready to pull the plug, Jim stepped in with great advice that saved the day. For all the time he spent he received not a penny. Last year we were in the unpleasant position of having to put our Labrador Retriever to sleep. She was close to 12 years old and a wonderful member of the family. Jim and his staff were very compassionate in a very tough situation, reassuring us that we had done all that could be done. I wouldn't consider another vet.See MoreRead Less"

Over 18 years ago I had a very sick little dalmation puppy whom I had taken to numerous doctors. It wasn't until Dr. Jim's dad, Tom Sparks told me to take him to see Dr. Jim. It was the best decision that was made. For 12 years Dr. Jim took such excellent care of "Speckles", he held my hand and made me feel so much better over the course of Speckles life. In the end I knew that Dr. Jim had giving me 12 years with a remarkable pet, of course it was so hard to let him go, but Dr. Jim was with us and I knew that he truly cared about Speckles.

Dr. Jim did so much to give Speckles a good life, but he did more for me by just truly loving him. He is not just a vet, he is my friend. After, we lost Speckles I was so sure that I could never and would never have another dog, but Dr. Jim made me feel that a new dog would be good. So, eight years ago we took his suggestion and now have a Golden Doodle named Vinny...and if that wasn't enough we have a 1 year old Mini-Golden Doodle named Gabby. There is no better doctor, friend, or someone who understands the love of a pet than Dr. Jim. If only all owners of business would see the care and compassion to it's clients that Dr. Jim and Eagle Animal Hospital it would be a wonderful story to write in every business class.

Jim has been the family vet for over 25 years. He is not only a great vet but a great person. His compassion for humans and animals is seen every day in his work. I moved back into town in 1997 with my dog Sydney and my parents were using Dr. Sparks as their vet. They recommended I bring my dog to him as well. Sydney was not your sweet easy going dog, she always had a tough time when going to previous vets. They would have to muzzle her before they were able to look over her or care for her. My first visit with her & Dr. Sparks, I forewarned him that she was a biter. This did not phase him, he asked that we not muzzle her & see how things go. I was amazed at what happened next, he actually got on the floor with my dog! No vet had ever done that before. He made a point to get on Sydney's level and make her feel comfortable. It was amazing, no muzzle was needed and she had no anger. She actually felt calmed by his voice and actions. At that point I knew he was the vet for Sydney and I! My pets have been seeing him ever since. I continue to see Dr. Sparks with my dogs and cats and he has been there when 2 previous pets have passed. I could not recommend a more caring and compassionate vet!See MoreRead Less"

My wife and I have known Jim for about 14 years through his involvement with our church and school. For as long as I have known him, he has always generously donated a puppy for the school auction (including all the vaccinations, etc. for the first year). Because of this, we have been taking our pets to Eagle Animal Hospital for just over 12 years. I have found Jim and his entire staff to be very professional, courteous, friendly and compassionate. We have taken our pets in for routine visits, sick visits, bathing and boarding. Sadly, we even had a dog put down (the entire staff was very sympathetic through the whole process and let us stay as long as we wanted after he died). My kids will always remember him for one very special gift...Jim found us Buddy, our golden retriever. As cliche as it sounds, if you didn't know any better, you would think that every pet that comes in is actually Jim's that he's just loaned out to the pet owners for lack of space in his office. Jim embodies all that veterinarians are or should aspire to be. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to take their pet to Eagle Animal Hospital.See MoreRead Less"

Dr. Sparks is not only an amazing veterinarian, but also a compassionate business owner. I first met him when he allowed me to intern at Eagle Animal Hospital during my senior year of high school. During this internship I was able to work alongside him and his team, learn more about the business as a whole and he was always there to answer any questions I had. My favorite part about this internship was that he was always giving me insight on his experiences in Vet School at The University of Missouri and recommendations on classes that have really helped him over the years become a better veterinarian as well as a business owner.

Eagle Animal Hospital is more than just another veterinarian hospital. The staff here truly cares about your animals. There were countless times that I watched the team go above and beyond for their clients because they are truly passionate about their love for animals. If you have not brought your pets into Eagle Animal Hospital, please do. They will take just as good of care of your pets as you do!

Dr. Sparks was highly recommended by my former employer at Red Bridge Kennel here in Kansas City over 10 years ago, and he’s been taking care of our pets ever since. Dr. Sparks and his entire staff are the most caring and dedicated professionals that I ever have the pleasure to work with, they took great care of my pets and always treated my pets as if it is one of their own. One of my pet developed a life threaten condition while I was out of town on vacation, the boarding kennel took my pet to Dr. Sparks and after further examination, it was determined my pet needed to be treated at the specialty clinic, instead of waiting for me to return to the city, they transported my pet to the specialty clinic so he can be treated immediately, they did this for me without additional costs, and I don’t believe any other Vet clinic would’ve done what they did for me. Dr. Sparks and his entire staff set the bar extremely high and I believe they are the best Veterinary clinic in Kansas City.See MoreRead Less"

I have been with Dr. Sparks, the owner of Eagle Animal Hospital through 2 generations of my Pomeranian's and now my third puppy who is 5-months old. . My first Pomeranian was 9-years old when we had to let her go. and my second was 12-years old.. I cannot even express how grateful i am to Dr. Sparks and his staff for their compassion and support through such a difficult time of losing a beloved pet (family member.) I have been through some illnesses with my pets where i had been sent to specialists for certain treatments or tests and then is when i can compare the treatment i receive from Dr. Sparks compared to the others i have experienced, well there is absolutely no comparison. I believe that is what makes Dr. Sparks such a a great owner. Not only with him but all the staff at Eagle Animal Hospital treats each and every pet and pet owner as if they are truly the only one they have and that is very comforting. I would not trust any other with my beloved pet.See MoreRead Less"

I have known Dr. Sparks about 15 years now. I began using Eagle Animal Clinic on the recommendation of a Weimaraner breeder friend of mine. I drive past many other vets to take my personal Vizslas and our rescue Vizslas to Eagle and Jim Sparks. I had a male who had a fairly unusual blood parasite disease (neospora) that Dr. Sparks identified. The dog recovered and went on to receive his show Championship and field titles. Sparks and his staff have seen my dogs through reproduction and whelping puppies to crying with me when I've had to make the tough decisions to do the right thing and let them go. He worked at Eagle through high school and now owns it. You don't see that kind of stability anywhere else. I respect his opinion and am happy to give this review.See MoreRead Less"

Our family has used Eagle Animal Hospital to take care of our fur babies for the last 20 years. Jim Sparks and his team at Eagle are some of the most caring and compassionate people you will ever find. Everyone there is friendly and happy, they remember your name and are genuinely concerned about your pet's well being. Having had two senior dogs with serious health conditions I can tell you that all possible care options will be presented. If and when the time comes that you must let your fur baby go to the Rainbow Bridge the team at Eagle will support you and help you during that difficult time. I would not even consider taking my fur family anywhere else!See MoreRead Less"

Having known Dr. Sparks since his boyhood to the present time, I must express the great amount of pride I feel in recommending him for any endeavors he might undertake. The compassion, dedication and integrity he brings to the field of veterinary medicine is unmatched by anyone I know personally. The clientele of Eagle Animal Hospital are indeed fortunate to have such an individual in which to entrust their pets. The standards of healthcare ad treatment he practices are shared by his associates and the hospital employees. He would never tolerate anything less. I wish him the very, very best.

I have known Jim for over 18 years as the consumate professional and leader in the veterianary business, and as a close personal friend. He and his staff at Eagle Animal Hospital are "the best" in every sense of the word, and will always offer sound care and advice that, contrary to sometimes "making a profitable sale", is usually in the utmost benefit for the long term health of the pet involved! Putting the care of the "patient" first, and profits last, is a business model that we all should try and emulate! That is the best way I know to build loyal, repeat customers, and happy, healthy pets!See MoreRead Less"

Jim Sparks is a true miracle worker. My beautiful golden retriever Leo mysteriously went into kidney failure at age 2. The overnight emergency vet said his creatinine levels were not conducive with a living creature. Jim did everything in his power to save my dog, and guess what? Leo pulled out of it within a few days and never showed any side effects of what he'd been through. Jim said he used what he learned from treating Leo to save many more dogs with similar symptoms. I can't say enough good things about Jim. Thanks to him, I got to spend many more happy years with my Leo.See MoreRead Less"

Is there a rating better than THE VERY BEST?? Because that's the kind of owner/veterinarian Dr. Sparks is. He is knowledgeable, kind, sincere, and always gives you ALL options available in the best care for your pet. And his philosophy obviously transfers over to his staff of other vets and support staff, as they are helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable as well. There are a lot of veternarian clinics in Kansas City, many of them fine establishments, but in my opinion, you won't find one better, hands down, than Jim Sparks' Eagle Animal Clinic.See MoreRead Less"

I know Dr. Sparks from the N. Kansas City Breakfast club where he is an active member and past president. Jim treated our Yellow Lab "KC" from a 6 week puppy to 12 years old with excellence and loving care, treating her as though she was his own dog. The true testimony to Eagle Hospital is that "KC" and our new Black Lab "Dakota" love going there to see all the staff. Jim gets down with the dogs and makes every examination as pleasant as possible for the dogs. I highly recommend Eagle Animal Hospital to all my friends.

We have known Dr. Sparks for more than ten years. He is a great veterinarian because he truly cares about the animals. We have taken our cat to Dr. Sparks as well as two guinea pigs. When some veterinarians would have looked at us like we were crazy for giving our guinea pigs antibiotics, Dr. Sparks realized that they were a part of our "family" and we wanted them taken care of as such. Not only is Dr. Sparks a great veterinarian, but he is a great person. He will listen to your concerns and do whatever he can to help your pet.See MoreRead Less"

Jim has been our family veterinarian for years. Not only is he and his entire staff at Eagle unbelievably accessible and caring for our dogs Lucky and Penny, I firmly believe that Lucky wouldn't have made it if it weren't for the care she received from Jim. And unfortunately a couple of years ago my father had to put down his beloved lab, I think it upset the staff as much as it did our family. You will not find better care for your animals anywhere.See MoreRead Less"

I met Jim after Dr. Barrows retired. I have never met a kinder, extremely knowledgeable, and compassionate person (veterinarian) as Dr. Sparks. The outstanding care he gave for my cat will never be forgotten. Abie was one of those with "not so common health issues" that Dr. Sparks was able to diagnose and treat effectively. I have recommended him to several friends who have thanked me for suggesting his clinic. He is to be commended.See MoreRead Less"

I had the pleasure of meeting Jim and working with him as an interior designer for his new home. This year. I can honestly say you could not meet a more patient, caring, friendly, and enlighting individual to be around. I no longer have a pet due to time restraints and if I did this is where our pet would go for loving care and to be under the supervision of a true knowledgable professional."
