Let me open with this: I LOVE THESE VETS!!! I moved here in May with my cat and he's EXTREMELY anxious when he goes to the vet. I only recently brought him in and that is what led me to write this review. In August I got a 6 week old and I was desperately searching for someone to take him to because he was a farm dog and I knew that meant he had just about everything you could think of. He was diagnosed with ring worms, round worms, hook worms, fleas...it was awful. With all the medication they gave him and the special shampoo I thought it was going to cost a bundle, but it didn't. Their prices were very reasonable. The techs were gentle with him and very kind. Dr. Bailey is his regular vet and she is just so good with him and explains everything she's looking at while she's looking. The place is immaculate! Unfortunately, I've been in there a lot with the new puppy, but he's a people dog, so he has been easily impressed. I finally had to bring my cat in on the 13th...again...this is what led me to write this review. I find many vets handle dogs well, but seem to have a distaste for cats. A few of the things that stood out to me about the facility were things like the fact that they have separate waiting areas for the dogs and cats. My cat gets anxious if he even sees a dog, so this was nice. Then, they also have separate exam rooms for the cats, so they don't smell the dogs. Even with this, though, my cat started hyperventilating. The tech was real nice and tried to calm him down, but when she could see him getting very physically upset I figured that she would be like the rest of the vets and do the bare minimum for him. She instead took him in his carrier to see the vet. When our vet came in she informed us that the cat was too upset, but with our permission she would use a gas to make him fall asleep and still run all the tests. I was so surprised...this had never been an option for me. He's 2 years old and just now finally been checked for everything under the sun! Overall, I think the staff is very professional and it is apparent that they love their patients. The ladies in reception are very nice too. They have learned from what I can see every patient's name. It's fantastic! I don't know if I can say enough about them. I highly recommend going there. Hershey and Goober both love Dr. Bailey and she is their regular vet so she's who I can vouch for the most.
