We took our guinea pig here for a visit since he wasn't doing well and he needed a vitamin C shot. 20 mins after the vitamin C shot, and the shot with fluids (since he was dehydrated), he died. The total bill was $136.83 and the doctor (Dr. Tony Poutous) would only refund us the $73 in medication, not the $63 upfront fee. I'm extremely dissatisfied with their service. It was a whole lot better when Dr. MacQueen was there. NEVER GO HERE! I would also recommend Providence Square Veterinary Hospital in the Kempsville area, as they service exotic animals and guinea pigs.
I met Dr. Schacker at Pet Smart and followed her to Midway. It was a bit of a drive for us but she is a wonderful vet. My husband asked me why I went to a vet so far away. I told him she was worth it. The first time my husband came with me to the vet, He understood why and agreed with me that she was a wonderful vet.

I take my hamster to midway veterinary hospital and I would not consider taking my pet anywhere else. The staff is friendly, the prices are fair, and they really seem to care about the animals. Dr. Macqueen is great with animals and knows alot about small animals. I would recommend them to anyone!

Never really satisfied with their customer service, my last nerve was plucked when my dog came into the clinic with obvious health concerns. We told Dr. Ruth Ann MacQueen our concerns and she dismissed them, stating that she could not see anything wrong with my dog after she had felt his belly and took his temperature (activities that cost $80). She was extremely rude, telling my brother and me to ""sit"" like WE were dogs.
Two days later I brought my dog to another clinic (he looked and acted the same way as he did the day we visited Dr. Ruth Ann MacQueen) where the doctor immediately noticed that something was wrong. Turns out my dog had pancreatitis and was severely dehydrated. We checked him into an emergency hospital where he was on fluids for 24 hours. He is currently recovering.
It is also known that Dr. Ruth Ann MacQueen has k1lled a dog on the operating table during a routine procedure. Unfortunately, that information has been removed from the Virginia Department of Health Professions website (it has been more than 90 days), if not, I would have been more than happy to provide a link.
If you want quality care for your loved one, this is NOT the place for you to go. Needless to say, my dog and I will be going elsewhere.

I had an emergency situation with my Bearded Dragons. I was scared because their beards had swollen without any change in their daily routine. I was not her customer but she fit me in before her surgeries, treated me with kindness, comforted my pets, gave me great information and charged me a fair price. Great staff and a wonderful experience! If you are looking for a person who really cares about your pet, Ruth McQueen and Midway Vet Hospital are great!
