We have a new foster dog from the local shelter who hasn't been feeling well. I was so relieved at how Dr. Wisbrock clued right in to the little dog's rare and very serious blood disorder. Dr. Wisbrock was really concerned and kept our little foster baby there all day several times to observe him and see how he reacted to treatment. He'd call and leave updates on his condition, which was great. I also find it particularly interesting that our shy, sick little foster dog bursts into wags when the staff and doctors deal with him. He is obviously treated very well there. I say this because this particular foster dog can be very shy and growly with people. One of the Vet techs came out and talked to me while I was waiting one time and I was shocked at how excited and happy our tiny patient was to see him! He can be so unfriendly and growly sometimes, but the people at Love Pet hospital obviously have taken the time to make him feel comfortable during his weekly day-long visits. That's a relief for me because I know he's very sick and I don't want him to be stressed by vet visits. He's getting well and they obviously care about the animals. I get very attached to animals and view them as family, so this is great! This hospital has made it easier for me to sleep at night because I know they give good care - not just science/medicine-wise, but also in the form of kindness and caring.

I write this with a heavy heart. Drs. Love, Wisbrock, Davenport are all extremely caring and compassionate, as are the front office staff. My issue.. I was one of Dr. Love's first clients when she was first starting out and their approach just isn't the same any longer. I've been taking my animals, both cats and dogs there, for over 15 years. It just doesn't seem to me that the focus is as much on my animals anymore than it is on getting outrageous fees from their faithful clients. I'm actually considering trying Brykerwoods or someone else that 1)doesn't charge so much and 2) is willing to work with those like me who have a genuine interest in bettering the health of our pet, but might need a payment system sometimes. They try to push their holistic and way overpriced foods with continued, costly visits. That's not the Carolyn Love who cared as much for the owner as she did the patient. She (they) love the animals, don't get me wrong, but it seems as though since she added all this additional staff that the overhead has taken the place of the willingness to do their best affordable care. They could knock their prices in half and still earn more than most vets around town. Great care if you have deep pockets.

Although I think that Dr. Love is very compassionate and caring, this is one of the most expensive vets in town. It is hard to get a timely appt. and if your animal is sick generally I couldn't wait 2 or 3 days. Also a lot of extra services are offered and sometimes pushed.
