Dr. King and Dr. McIntyre are our favorite go-to doctors here, but all of the doctors are calming, informative, and effective veterinarians. All of the staff remember us when we come back and are so kind to both of our children who are an orange tabby with feline urinary tract disease and lower bladder disease and a deaf pitbull with an allergy to complex carbohydrates. They treat them like gold, have appointments available virtually any time--which is important when Jangles has allergy flare ups and Alice has UTI's that sometimes cause blood to form in his urine. They are so good with telling you the cost and working with you to ensure the most honest, affordable service. My partner and I are in our 20's and work in the service industry while also attending school full time--we don't have a lot of money and it is never a big issue here the way it was at other vets. They don't judge you or make you feel any sort of way about your financial capabilities and make sure your babies receive the care they need. I want to also say that we started coming here after taking our dog, Jangles to Fall's Road Animal Hospital for 2 years where they pushed their sponsored promotional food on us when Jangles was very ill from severe food allergy. We saw many clinicians at their office and after those 2 years, saw one that we had not previously made an appointment with who reprimanded us for not being aware of his allergies. They were our veterinarians who we saw regularly, who ignored our reports of constant, serious diarrhea, foot chewing, and stress. That was more offensive than you could imagine when we were begging for help and footing the bill for them to make money and not treat our child. We switched to Eastern after being recommended by many of our dog-walking clients and they immediately identified the allergy and started him on a hydrolyzed protein diet that solved his allergy. They have never pushed a product on us at all in any of our visits.
I love this place! I foster for a local rescue, and when I get a dirty or matted dog in it's off to Doggie Style for a grooming. They always come back looking and smelling wonderful! I am always amazed at how great they are at untangling knotted doggie fur. While I always give them the option of a shavedown, so far they have always been able to save the pretty fur coats. And the groomers are very patient with some very nervous and confused little dogs. Thanks Doggie Style!
If it weren't for the front staff, I'd give them five stars. The vets and the techs are nice, knowledgeable and competent. The front staff is more of a mixed bag, range from friendly to plain old rude and nasty. Since their pay comes out of my pocket, I think it might be okay for them to learn -not to mention to use- basic manners when dealing with customers.
Belvedere Vet is wonderful. Dr. Elianne is talented and commited to pets' overall health. BV is a community vetinary clinic rather than a big box clinic. If you want high quality, individualized care for your pet--visit BV.
