Dr. ray Decent and his staffs are very friendly. I would highly recommend them for minor wellness exams and treatments. But if your pet needs surgical or dental treatment, BEWARE!. My dog came home and died of severe dehydration for dental cleaning. Knowing that you can't give food and water before, while waiting(7 hours) , and after the procedure, my dog was not given I.V fluid during the procedure which is standard in other vet clinics.I took him to another emergency vet clinic,his veins had collapsed because of dehydration.
I got to the are because of the military. I had two dogs when I first moved to Steilacoom and my pet sitter recommended this vet. I feel in love with the Dr. and his staff. So careful and throughout with out unnecessary tests. They also have the best prices of the area (I leave in Lacey now and they are still cheaper and better). I got married and I my husband had a cat that was sick. I took them to many Vets closer to our house ( we lived in Yelm) an no one could figure out what the cat had. So I too him to Custer and guess what the cat is perfectly fine now recovering from a condition that would have killed him and that Dr. DeCent diagnosed the first time he had ever seen our cat. Now I have a new puppy and he goes to Custer as well. I have a 40 min drive to his clinic but trust me when I tell you that it is well worth it, knowing that my pets get quality and thoughtful care, and to top it off, inexpensive. Thank you Custer road!!!
We love Ray, we have been using this facility for our dog for 8 years now. He is very gentle with our dog and great at explaining to our kids what he is going to do to help our dog. We have a 100 lb lab and he gets so excited to and visit Ray.
We have been going to Custer Road Vet Clinic since Ray took over and we couldn't be happier with the service we recieve there. They offer military discounts, and treat our pets as if they were their own. You can tell they care a great deal about the pets and their clients. With all of our dogs, Ray has gotten right down on the floor with them especially the big baby I have right now who weighs nearly 100 pounds and tries to climb on my lap and hide he's so afraid. I've recommended him for years and will continue to do so!!
The prices are very high. They charge you even if you dont see the Doctors. They use expensive equipment that is so unneeded and charge you an arm and a leg for it. I stopped going here and drove a bit further to Lakewood veterinary hospital. they are so much nicer, cheaper and they care a great deal for your pets. I even seen the doctor shed a tear after they had to put an animal down after it was hurt in a car accident. it was sad and they really seemed to care.
I will never go back to Custer. they are almost as bad as banfield.
