I had just flown in from a two week vacation and found by cat very lethargic and in a bunch of pain. I called Cherished Companions immediately and they were completely full for the day, however, Dr. Melanie said that if I dropped my cat off, she would work him in between patients. Oh boy am I glad she did, I found out he was diabetic and had a major infection. He is 16 years old, so his life and health were at risk and if she would not have taken him, I would have had to go to an emergency center which would have been double the cost. As a single parent with multiple pets in the house, I was very happy that she was able to take a look at the cat and get him stabilized.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the technician and doctor were gentle and very nice to my cat. I went to the appointment not really knowing how many the services were going to cost, but expecting a huge bill based on my experience with another vet in town. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the charges were very reasonable - and my cat got two routine vaccinations on top of the exam and antibiotics she needed for why I originally brought her in. I am so happy to have found a "forever vet"... one I will go to for all of my veterinary needs going forward!
Cherished Companions is a great place to get regular care for your pet. The staff is always kind, attentive and helpful, even when super busy. This last time, we were about 20 mins early for our appt and they took Beau straight back and had him out and done before our appt time even started. They also had me rung up and done before that time, despite the growing crowd in the waiting area. The doctors there are very caring and always take great care of our dog. Thanks, CC!
Overall service was great, friendly, professional, and my puppy Gus was a good sport. Due to my experience in the human medical field I made a suggestion to the technician that completed Gus's vitals, but I don't think she understood me. I suggested taking pulse, respiration's etc prior to taking his temperature, as everything is falsely elevated otherwise. Looking forward to having my dog taken care of by Cherished Companions because I cherish him greatly!
Cherish companion’s cares about your pet and the pets family. Dr. Wulshleger listen carefully to what is going on with your pets health, then gets down on the floor with your pet and interacts with them before giving you her diagnosis. My 10 year relationship with Cherished Companion has been a positive one.
Yesterday we took 2 of our dogs in for checkup's, nail trims, and one needed an ear recheck. We saw Dr Whitney for the first time. She was awesome just like all of the other vets and staff. We always have a great experience at Cherished Companions. I highly recommend them. We would never go anywhere else.
As always, I was treated kindly, and the help given to myself and my elderly kitty was superb. Compassionate and caring, along with the knowledgeable advice given from Dr. Melanie, this hospital is one of the best.
Thorough exam. Good explanation of all procedures, tests and results and good directions for at home care. We were comfortable and confident with Dr. Whitney's and Tech. Danielle's work with the Lab names Cab.
Dr. Mel is wonderful we have been customers from the day she opened. We trust her care and knowledge she is great, has great integrity and cares for the pet. I recommend her and her staff to anyone in need.
The staff at Cherished Companions always provides friendly, professional and caring service. They take a sincere interest in the well being of our pet and are always willing to answer any question we have.
