Ronald Baumgart DVM

I took my new pet's current records to this vet's office and asked to buy heart worm preventive medicine. Dr. Baumgart happens to be a former neighbor and was my previous pet's vet for many years. The "vet tech" on duty refused to sell me the medicine unless I brought the animal in for them to see. I asked why that was necessary. Did they think the animal did not exist, or that I was too stupid to weigh the animal accurately, or that the records were somehow at fault. They could not give me a legitimate reason why they wanted me to go to the trouble of bringing the animal in but they would not sell me the medication for the dog.

I had to take my very sick dog in to be euthanized, and I was just heart broken. We, my dog and I, we're treated with dignity and empathy. In our time of need I was grateful to be seen quickly, treated compassionately and allowed to be with my baby til I was ready to go. Thank you doesn't say enough but it's the only words I have to come close in letting you know how much the staff was appreciated. Bless you all!

Don't go here!!! I would say -5000!!!!!!!! After a very late night and long day daisy is healthy and doing well. All 5 magnets were removed from her stomach. I am so thrilled we decided to go to academy animal hospital this morning. They did an amazing job. After going to indyvet emergency last night we were not happy with their service. When we called for a quote on xrays I was told $90-150. We get there and she said xrays was $250. Never offered to show us the xray results, i had to ask. The vet was not very knowledgeable. They tried to do a scope. They were unsuccessful, which does happen i do get that. Vet said she was sure that the magnets were pinching her stomach lining. I asked if she could see if there is any fluid in the stomach, vet said oh ya an ultrasound. Thankfully there was no fluid. Total cost at this point $2000 for a exam, xray, scope(not surgical). Really not thrilled at this point. The next move was to have surgery but said we had to pay $6000 at the time of surgery. No banks are open at 3 am. They did not care. There was no help or budging the price. Indyvet emergency stated we could do a credit card but all the money was do before they did surgery, which does not make sense. They must have money then or no surgery another option was euthanize her. She is 6 months old! The vet did offer some sound advice to wait till morning, give her fluids. The doctor said once I come up with the money they can start surgery. The vet did say we could take her to our vet.Then after calling multiple family members we came to the decision to take her to academy animal hospital this morning and to give her fluids till 7am. As soon as I called the academy animal hospital they had the vet speak to me on the phone. Dr. Morgan was so kind. When we brought her in I felt that he knew what he was doing. He offer to show us the xray, never had to ask. Dr. Morgan stated that it looked like there was no pinching. I knew she was in good hands. I felt at ease with my decision to change vets.The charge for academy animal hospital for surgery cost $1000.50, indyvet emergency wanted $6000!!!!! They are crooks, not offer payments and expect you to pay an ungodly amount. Good news now Daisy is magnet free and has an intact stomach. I am so thankful for this amazing vet.We were advised to go to airport hospital next time!

I've been taking my birds to see Dr. Lennox for 10+ years. She's a great veterinarian and very kind. Once she even took my sick African grey home with her and took care of him all night. And I just learned that aparently she's like the only "board certified" bird vet in all of Indiana, which is cool! She REALLY knows her stuff. So its well worth the drive to see her!The staff is also nice and very knowledgable. A few times I've seen one of her interns and I've been pretty happy with them. I love Cori at the front desk. They've always taken great care of my critters! Highly recommend!!

They are wonderful, quick and efficient. They treated my pet and i like family. I was not looked down on for not keeping up on my vet care, what mattered to them is I was there now, they went above and beyond to keep my large pit comfortable and calm and when he became stressed it was no problem to allow him a break, very affordable, highly recommend

Shelby Street Animal Clinic
Jeff F. rated

This is one of the best animal clinics you will find in the Indianapolis area. Their prices are very reasonable, but much more important to me is they are caring and compassionate. Dr Borst and crew have helped several of my animals through some bad times and then, when "that" time eventually comes, they compassionately help my animal (and me) through the dying process. Just yesterday I had to say goodbye to my beloved dog Ellie. I didn't think I was going to be able to do it, but the entire team helped me through it from the front desk staff, to the techs, and then of course Dr Borst. They were all extremely caring and very aware of the pain I was going through. It was still a very sad day, but made much easier to take by this place and the team there. I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

BE CAREFUL

On my first visit, I was extremely impressed, however they disappointed me very, very quickly. I was specifically told about the coupon on the website and bringing in 2 pets for a free visit for them each, I asked questions for clarifications and was cheerfully answered. I left feeling that I at last found a vet that cares about pets and not money; sadly I was deceived. A coupon is offered on their website for new clients and a free 1st visit for 2 pets. When I utilized this coupon for my 2nd pet, they said, "we cannot honor this" because I was not a new client. Please note they honored the 1st pet for me, but not the 2nd because I was considered no longer "new" after that pet's visit. Also, I recommend NOT calling for an estimate of cost, please go in and have them print one for you. An 'estimate of cost' should be within $5-$10, not more than $30, which happened in my case. Please be careful with this place, and make sure you get any future services in writing so you are not stuck with 'they said, you heard' promises. I also noticed in my very brief association with them that their entire front desk personnel had changed. High turn over employment is a bad sign in a business.

Awesome Care and feels like family

Dr Tysklind always goes above and beyond to help in time of need. He will seek out additional opinions and information if necessary to ensure the best care for your vet. Several times he has seen us after hours and always works us in. He is very thorough and returns calls ppersonal and makes sure to do so. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Did You Know?

How to Find the Right Vet or Clinic for Your Animal

Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.

Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.

If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.

  • Look for a vet who's close to your house, as many animals don't like being in the car for a long time. If there's an emergency, you want to make sure you can get your pet to the vet as quickly as possible. 
  • Though all veterinary clinics must be able to make arrangements to see their clients' pets outside of office hours if there's an emergency, these arrangements may not always be at the facility you're used to. Double check with the office to see where the emergency facility is.
  • Some clinics have longer hours than others. If you work a 9-5 schedule, make sure the office is open on nights and weekends.
  • Whether you have pet health insurance or not, it's still worth checking what the regular costs for typical procedures are at the vet's office. There isn't a set standard when it comes to price, so it's good to know that you're not looking into a clinic that's beyond your means.

The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.

Types of Vets

Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.

Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.

Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:

  • Private practice veterinarians: This is the most popular type of veterinarian, and many of these professionals work at clinics. They may also go to farms to care for livestock that can't be transported to the clinic.
  • Teaching and research: These vets work at veterinary schools, training students who are planning on joining the veterinary field. They may also work in college labs conducting research pertaining to animal health.
  • Regulatory medicine: These vets work closely with diseases rather than animals themselves. Their responsibilities include controlling or eliminating illnesses, and protecting the public from diseases in animals. They may also work with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Services.
  • Public health: These vets are also known as epidemiologists. They work for cities, counties, states or federal agencies to help control and prevent animal and human disease. Public health vets may work for the FDA to determine the safety of medicines and food additives.
  • Uniformed services: The U.S. Army Veterinary Corps employ these vets. They're responsible for biomedical research and development.
  • Private industry: These vets go to school solely for positions in pharmaceutical and biomedical research. They work in labs that produce chemicals, drugs and vaccines for both humans and animals.

What Do Veterinary Assistants Do?

A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.

What to Expect at the Vet's Office

It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits. 

The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.

When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.  

Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots. 

Cost and Insurance

Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck. 

There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.

Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
