Horrible experience!. Would not ever recommend them to anybody!!... My dog has a permanent scar from an injury he sustained while under their care and they blamed it on me!!... My dog has a lot of hair and it grows really fast and is prone to matting. He is always clean and obviously I care enough about him to give make sure he is seen by a vet but grooming him is not a talent of mine so o took him there and they nicked his eyelid!.. He also developed a severe UTI after being neutered and left overnight at the facility and not being able to relieve himself! I worked nights at the time which was the only reason I left him there!.. I thought he would be cared for!! No he was left alone and probably in pain from his eye injury and his surgery and the infection that was starting!!! I can't say enough about how it tramatized our dog me and my children! Also we were not compensated for anything!... There is a complaint filed on them at the better business bureau .... And needless to say I switched vets
NO LONGER the best vet in town. I've used them for years. Their staff turnover is absurd. Frankly, if you're not taking a ferret to this vet, you're on the bottom of the list. Our dog had puppies, I called and scheduled a check up and specifically stated that we needed dewormer for all of them. We hauled 9 four week old puppies to their office only to be told, "Dr. Beer will only see two at a visit!" Really?! Why don't you just come out and say that you want 5 office visit charges?! Who deworms 2 dogs at a time in a litter? We left and will NEVER return! The vet assistant is just plain rude and grumpy!

Dr. Beers is the friendliest most knowledgeable vet in town. We have taken both of our pitt bulls there and they have helped our pups with everything from needed surgeries to basic check ups. The staff is friendly and they try their level best to give affordable options.

Dr Beer and the staff at Care Pet Clinic are AWESOME !!!!!!!
My 9 yr old beagle collie was extremely sick and needed emergency surgery and he was able to do it for half of what the other vet was quoting....This hospital saved my dog's life....they are the friendliest people and the hospital is extremely clean as are the kennels..I was able to call and check on her and even spent a couple of hours with her in her kennel....I have felt very loved throughout the whole process....I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with an animal....

The prices are great and Dr. Beer himself seems knowledgeable and professional---if you're lucky enough to see HIM. But...........
One of my dog's surgeries was botched--it actually looked like a rookie intern did the procedure.
Getting staff to just fill out and sign insurance paperwork is nearly impossible. You have to constantly stay on top of them to get anything done. Getting forms faxed to your provider? Forget it. You can also forget calling them to get a refill on meds or any other type of request most vets/clinics would gladly do. It seems most problems are with the admin. staff-poor attitude-poor service.

Dr. Beer and his staff were wonderful! My dog is huge, aggressive & fairly unmanageable. I had gotten quotes of $1000 and more to have his surgery. And that wouldn't have taken care of my fear of the dog's acting up and being untreatable. Dr. Beer took time to talk to me, gave me a do-able quote, and was perfectly ok with treating my wildman. Thank God for him and his patient staff! I know how bad the dog is, but now the dog's arthritis is better, he thinks he's a pup again, and I have a vet that I know will help me!

I took my dog in to be treated for a prolapsed rectum. When we arrived we were the only ones in the waiting room. We were seen promptly. The staff was friendly and polite.
The doctor took his time with us and explained the treatment plan.
I felt very comfortable taking my pet there.

Dr. Beer always spends allot of time with us, we take all three animals to him. You have to ask questions, give symptoms and he will go over all of the options for your pet. We have a cat who has had problems with UTI's for years and he helped us solve her problem. Our dog has allergies and he has really helped us with the care of his skin through food and shampoo. Very expensive allergy testing was done but was inconclusive, dog is much better with the food and shampoo. We love him but one of our cats literally hates him, but she hates everybody except us.

I've been taking my cats to this vet for two years now, and I've always had good experiences. Maybe it depends on the day or how you yourself act toward them, but I've never felt that the staff didn't care about me or my pets. I get the same nurse (is that the right term?) every time and she always remembers me and the details about my cats even if it's been months since the last visit. Truthfully I've only seen Dr. Beer twice, but both times have been for more serious reasons than a simple immunization visit. The last time I saw him he was very helpful. I can see why some people had an issue with getting advice or follow-up instructions. One of my cats also has/had Giardia and he told me he would prescribe him some medicine. At this point he seemed about to leave the room, but that's when you have to be forward and actually ask him questions. A lot of professionals are so used to what they do it may not occur to them that you need extra information - they are only human, after all. I'll leave Mom2Two06 a comment telling her what he told me to do.
The only drawback I find with this vet is the long wait, I've waited up to an hour before getting into one of the rooms.
Overall I find this to be a good vet, especially at their prices, and haven't had any major concerns with them. I would definitely recommend this vet.

Although CPC is extremely afforable and some of the staff are absolutely wonderful, it is not some place that I will return for my dog's annual vet visit. The receptionist is not well-versed in hospitality and borders on rude and abrupt. I have been in with my puppy 3 times and have yet to see the vet who's name is on the front door. I asked the receptionist if I could please meet him before he did my dog's spay and she told me that he was just too busy. I came to this clinic specifically because Dr.Beer came so highly recommended and frankly am pissed off that he hasn't once administered to my dog. I've seen two other vets and both were abrupt and uninterested in the care of my dog. This is not a place I would feel comfortable talking my dog for any medical concern other than basic immunizations.

Took my pups to CPC last week and received basically the visit I expected (as in: you get what you pay for). Yes, staff will be friendlier and vets will give you more time if you pay for it. Turns out both of my babies have Giardia and I was given a pill for them to take. However, I wasn't given any additional information what-so-ever, which is disappointing. Internet research tells me that Giardia is very difficult to get rid of, was likely passed on to my cats and can be passed on to my kids. Dr. Beer didn't offer any additional advice on decontaminating the yard, house, the GiardiaVax or any other precautions to take. He didn't even really seem all that interested in seeing the cats. For basic care, I think CPC is great. The entire appointment was only $145, which included a second round of DHLPP and their Rabies. For more in depth care, it may be more worth your time to see another vet. I have a return appointment, so we'll see how that goes.

After reading the reviews, I expected to be pleased by taking my newly adopted pet here. I originally planned on taking my new cat to OSU because I am a grad student there and my mother had a great experience with her greyhounds at the clinic. But I adopted my cat from Pets Without Parents and in order to have them pay for meds that my cat needed due to a respiratory infection that started while he was there, I had to go to their vet.
I was the only person in the waiting room and it took at least 25 minutes past my appt. time to see a vet, and when I did I felt extremely rushed and had very little explained to me about the two medications to give my cat. The staff was not as friendly as other vets I've been to, and just seemed irritated with most people that were calling to ask questions. I plan on keeping my OSU appt. even though it'll mean paying for two vet appts in one week, but I'd rather take my petto OSU.

I have been coming to Care Pet Clinic ever since I adopted my cat 2 years ago at the recommendation of Pets Without Parents. The doctors are always willing to spend time with you discussing your pet and are so friendly and knowledgable. It continues to amaze me how affordable their services are. They also have the friendliest office cats to serve as the welcoming committee. :-)

This is a wonderful pet clinic! We have several clinics within a mile of our house, but we travel further to get to Care Pet Clinic. They are so friendly, the office is so clean, and they do not gouge you with prices. They are not only kind to me, but also very gentle and loving toward my dogs.
The vet tech Maria (who to me, seems to be more like an assistant veterinarian), is energetic and attentive and we can tell she really cares about our dogs. Dr. Beer is also very kind and treats you like you're a friend bringing a pet in. Sometimes you'll end up sitting in the waiting room for awhile, but once you're in the room, you'll realize it's because they give you their undivided attention and spend as much time as needed with you.

I love this vet! No where else have i gotten such good care and compassion out of a vet. Not only did they help me with my concerns after my puppy was spayed, but Dr. Beer called my house a few days later to make sure she was doing alright. The staff is kind and friendly, the animals there always seem happy. I love that they have in house cats. My puppy warmed up to the staff and dr. beer right away and usually it takes her a while. I wish I could give them more stars

I love EVERYONE there... the vets, the staff... EVERYONE! First of all - the other reviews are correct - they are the least expensive in town, and truly amazing care and time is taken with each animal! Twice now, I have had a situation where my pet was in discomfort, and both times, they told me to just bring him in - even though they were booked, they would fit him in, so he wouldn't have to be uncomfortable for any longer than necessary. I don't get this kind of availability from my kids' doctors!!!
