I moved here twelve years ago from the Chicago area, where I had been a Vet Tech for twenty years. Needless to say I was determined to seek out an exceptional Veterinarian upon my arrival. As I possess more than the average knowledge of the field I did my research extensively. That research lead me to Dr. Thomas Kanach. Dr. Kanach is highly intelligent and skilled in all aspects of veterinary care. My animals could not have had better medical care or compassion.
All of the staff at Above and Beyond are chosen very wisely and work exceptionally well together. You will never find a better Vet Tech than Jenna anywhere.
Often it is difficult for "pet parents" to have complete faith and trust in a Veterinarian. From the onset Dr. Kanach had mine.
It has been stated:
Good Veterinarians talk to animals.
Great Veterinarians hear them talk back.
Dr. Kanach is that great Veterinarian.
I'd give this place 10 stars out of 5 if it were possible. I always thought the prices were reasonable, especially considering the ultra high level of care provided. We got a Chihuahua from a shelter in 2005, and she had a couple hernias, bad knees, bad teeth, one eye and was badly underweight (she was also already 9 years old). With the help of Dr. Kanach, we were able to get her all fixed up and her life turned around. She was as energetic as a puppy until the last couple of weeks before her natural death at age 16 and a half. "Perfect" doesn't even begin to describe our experience at this office, and we couldn't possibly recommend it highly enough!
I read the previous review and agree that they were extremely expensive. The care was good; but costly. Our pet's eye required surgery. We later found out the other eye needed to be done. They should have suggested/recommended that both eyes have this surgery under one surgical fee. Instead it allowed an opportunity for two surgeries and additional money. Other yearly fees are almost double to the vet we use now.
I have stopped taking my dog there because treatments always end up being considered something major and are horribly expensive. My dog has had minor skin irritations that should have been treated with antibiotics, but instead I was told required expensive surgery. I have neighbors who have experienced similar situations. We have come to the conclusion that this clinic is money hungry. Instead of being concerned about our pet's well being, they are doing unnecessary surgeries. We will no longer take our pets there.
