Success! Thanks for posting your review of Care First Animal Hospital. You’ve done the world some good today.


We recently had our puppy spayed by Dr. Gordon. He used a new minimally invasive technique and our puppy went home a few hours following the procedure. That night she was back to playing with our kids and doing great. I think he is one of only a few practices in the area to offer this service. We were amazed that he could do the procedure through two incisions smaller than my finger.

Great results. Less pai

Not impressed

I took my dog for a rabies vaccination recently, she was not due for yearly exam or any thing else, and they charged $46 for a ""comprehensive exam"" just to give her rabies vaccine which was an additional fee. I used to be a veterinary technician and none of the places I ever worked charged an exam for rabies unless it was for the yearly exam. This exam was not remotely comprehensive and very hands-off. If I had kno... view more

Guard your wallet!

Don't be fooled by fancy marketing and a nice website. This outfit will overcharge for their services and take advantage of you when you are vulnerable.

We all want the best for our pets, but don't let your actions be guided by your emotions. Do your homework, make a few phone calls, and ask the obvious questions.

And don't be surprised when they try to sell you an extremely expensive bag of food because ""yo

Incompetent staff!

I have been going to Oberlin Animal hospital for 3 years, but last year they got rid of all the competent assistants. Now all they have is little girls who do not know how to handle the animals so I end up paying for sedation. I never had this problem with the other staff. They mess up the appointments, they give me a call telling me that I have an appointment yet when I go there they tell me that I am not scheduled ... view more

Oberlin Animal Hospital

Oberlin has a state of the art set up with most tests being done at their facility. They are open 24 hours. This could sound like a review for another well equipped animal hospital open when you need help, but there is one big difference. The doctors and staff at Oberlin without exception, treat your animal as a loved member of your family. So often when you are at an animal hospital you are in a time of great anxi... view more

Routine grooming resulted in major injury that required 3 stitches on my dogs neck!

I The groomers are negligent. I took my dog there for a groom because that is where my vet is located and I have had a positive experience with the vet. Shortly after I dropped my 5 pound toy poodle off for a groom, I got a call from the vet saying that the groomer cut my dog?s neck so badly that the vet had to give him 3 STITCHES! This is completely unacceptable. Then they said that I would not me charged for t... view more

Watch out for Unexpected Costs

I have a 4 month old puppy and have gone to Oberlin for the last 2 months. Although the staff is nice, I recently took her to be boarded and after three nights came to pick her up and the bill was around $367.00! I knew it would be expensive, but almost $400, are you kidding me? They gave her the last distempter booster, which was expected, but also did a stool check (not expected, no one ever told me my dog would re... view more

If you don't want to be greeted with paws and swinging tails don't come inside because dogs live here. \r
If you don't like the feel of a cold nose or a wet tongue, don't come inside because dogs live here. \r
If you don't want to step over many scattered toys, don't come inside because dogs live here. \r
If you think that a home ought to smell of perfume, don't come inside because dogs live her

I recently adopted my first pet and Oberlin has helped guide me through the process of being a first time dog owner fluidly and without embarrassment. Everyone that works there has a passion for animals and shares their own personal stories, giving me advice without making me feel incompetent or stupid for not already knowing. I especially like the fact that they are completely full service, with an after hours on-ca... view more
