Dr. Paige Pierce: Excellent

Dr. Pierce is one of the finest vets that I have ever had the pleasure of bringing my cats to. She has such an extraordinary way with both the pets and the people. She genuinely has respect for the animals she sees and shows great care. She is so patient and thorough with her exam and explains everything completely. I have shared my life with cats all my life so I've experienced many vets and I have got to say that Dr. Pierce is the finest I've met. She will be my kitty-kids vet for as long as I'm graced with them.

Outstanding vet!

Dr. Pierce is a wonderful, caring vet! She is really smart and takes plenty of time with her patients. She is good at setting the animals at ease and communicates well with their humans. We completely trust her advice. She has had to make a house call to help put our elderly dog to sleep and could not have been more gentle, kind and considerate of our feelings.

Excellent pet care at reasonable prices

This clinic in SW Portland staffed by 5 vets and open 7 days a week is the only place I would take my two cats. I have seen three of the vets here (Drs. Twardzik, Nolte, and Grossen) in both routine check-up and very-sick-cat situations, and they have all been terrific - mellow and gentle with the cats, solicitous and very professional with me. When my anti-social cat became very ill, they were able to get him seen quickly, make him comfortable, and took the time to call me at work with updates on his condition and a treatment plan. I'm happy to say that he is back to his healthy, happy self now and doesn't even seem all that scared on return trips to the office! The office staff and technicians that I've dealt with have been wonderful as well - they seem to like both their colleagues and the animals (not always the case at my last vet). Their prices have been extremely reasonable for the level of care, and they don't seem to ""push"" unnecessary or expensive diets or procedures as other vets sometimes do. In addition to cats, they see a lot of dogs as well (it's a pretty dog-heavy neighborhood), and I would certainly recommend them to any pet owner in the area.

wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else

I've taken my dogs to Pacific Vet for 14 years and would not take them anywhere else. The staff and Drs. are caring, loving and very helpful. Dr. Pierce in particular is very good. She talks to the animals in a soothing voice and takes as much time as needed to make sure animals and ""parents"" are comfortable and all questions and concerns are answered. I've had to have one dog, a cat and a hampster go to their eternal rest and paige was right there with us through it all. Do your dogs get as excited about going to see their vet as they do about a trip to the dog park? Mine do! Can't say enough about this vet. Awesome! (Sorry to say I don't recommend Dr. Frost, but everyone else is wonderful)

My dog has been injured here TWICE!

Our retired greyhound used to see a vet here and the vet was fine. However, we also used to board our beloved dog there while out of town. The first few times went smoothly, but then one time he came out of the kennels, tail wagging, jumping everywhere like he does, and was leaving a bloody trail behind him that NONE of the techs noticed, or else cared not to point out. They had no definite answer for what had happened to him and just assumed he had sliced his pad on the lip of the kennel. They bandaged it for him once i started to make a fuss and all was ok. I did not want to go back, however my DH gave them the benefit of the doubt. The very next time he stayed there it coincided with a surgery ... apparently he slipped off the surgery table and ended up with a gash in his thigh that required stitches and antibiotics. Needless to say, we will not let our dog within 10 feet of that place any more and i just thought people should be aware of our experience.

Awesome Veterinarian

I don't care what the former employee sez, Paige Pierce is the best. I have been going to Pacific Vet for 20 years, and my only complaint, which is small, is the time I only had my AMEX Card, which they don't take, and the young woman ( might the one in the previous review) wouldn't let me take my dog home or get her meds til I came back with payment they would accept. There was a time that I had an account there, which is no longer available. Paige came to my home when my aging dog needed to go to her eternal sleep. Paige had already made the time in her schedule (she knew it was time). Dr. Pierce was very calming, loving, caring, and even held me & cried with me when it was over. SHE IS A 10 IN VET CARE IN MY BOOK.

Excellant veterinary care delivered with love

I had the good fortune to find Pacific Veterinary Hospital about 10 years ago. Since that time, Dr. Frost and her wonderful partners (especially Julie Grossen) have cared for my family of kitties through illness such as lymphoma, complex surgeries (bizarre biliary tumors) and finally, with compassionate end of life care, coming to my home so that my much loved pets and I could have our final moments at home together. Their prices are very reasonable and they don't order a bunch of tests that are unneccesary. As long as I live in Portland, they will be my family veterinarians.

Excellent Vet

I've taken my standard poodle, two ferrets and currently my two miniature schnauzers to Pac Vet and in particular Dr. Pierce. She's an excellent vet! She spends as much time as needed to give proper care to my pets and answer any questions I may have regarding their care. I'm moving to Mexico soon and Dr. Piece has spent a large potion of time putting together a 1st aid kit in anticipation of any problems the dogs might have. I appreciate her effort very much. I can't say enought good things about her.

Hands down the best vet practice I have ever been to

I am new to Portland and was referred to this vet by a friend of mine when my cat dislocated her rear knee joint last week. When I walked into the building I was very emotional and it was hard for me to even talk. The front desk staff quickly took the carrier from me, helped calm me down and filled out all the paperwork for me. Within three or four minutes Dr. Frost was out speaking with me and my girlfriend. She was extremely empathetic, compassionate, and was genuinely concerned for Hope's (my cat) welfare and comfort. She also aknowledged my girlfriends children and was very good with them. I explained to her what had happened and she described what she wanted to do, why she wanted to do it, and what the possible results could be. In no time at all Dr. Frost was out in the waiting room and was explaining the results of her examination. She went over all of the possible options to me and answered all of my questions honestly and professionally. I was especially impressed with her answer when I asked if the damage to Hope's ligaments was irrepairable and did not flinch when she said it was. That is what I expect from a professional. I do not trust people who cannot answer a question directly no matter how difficult the answer may be. During that time the front office staff was very respectful of my emotional state and one of the girls (sorry wish I would have got her name) even took the kids out to the lobby to play with the kittens so that Dr. Frost and I would not be interrupted during this crucial time. I was allowed to visit Hope before I left and was promised that I would be called very shortly. Dr. Frost called me later that afternoon and thouroughly explained the procedure and Hope's reaction to it. I had a few other questions and had to call back 2 times and was never made to feel like I was bothering them or that my questions weren't important. I had to go back 3 days later and they were just as good even though they were very busy

Excellent treatment

I disagree with the ""former employee"" who criticized the care at this office. I've always had a great experience taking both of my dogs here. In fact, it wasn't until we went to PVH that my lab's knee problems were FINALLY correctly diagnosed. We got a referral to a wonderful veterinary surgeon, and my dog can now walk again, free of pain.

If this veterinary office is ""low quality,"" I can certainly point to many which are far, far worse. I recommend this place.
