I take my 20 y/o cat to Dr. Foland. Dr. Foland will take calls, via the office staff, and respond promptly. Here lately, my old Simon doesn't travel well, and I appreciate the fact that I don't have to haul him in there unless necessary. I find the staff, and Dr. Foland to be very kind and caring.
I have mixed feelings about this clinic. The vets I dealt with Dr. Fox and Dr. Foland seemed compassionate in their care . I heard stories from the staff about some of the cats that are now residents there that have been rescued after traumatic incidents and their care was provided at the cost of the hoapital. However, if a client is in need of making payment arrangements for care that is needed that cannot be done. Also, I had taken my dog there for diagnosis and treatment of recurrent diarrhea. An exam was done and I was told to change her diet to include yogurt. I did that but the diarrhea continued. We took a stool sample down and they gave us two medications. Even after the pills the diarrhea continued so I found a new vet. On her initial exam she felt a "mass" in her stomach. Upon further testing by x-ray and ultra sound they discovered a tumor the size of my fist which appears to be attached to her liver. This did NOT occur over night. I had my dog at Western Maryland about a month ago and they found NOTHING so I am guessing that they either didn't do as thorough an exam as I thought or felt the mass and decided to brush it off until a later date.. And, when I called to ask if there would be a charger to get a copy of her records their reply was no and they said goodbye. I guess they didn't either want to know why or didn't care that I was choosing another vet. I now go to Cassleman Veterinary Services in Grantsville and would recommend them to any of my friends.
We signed our cat up for the 20$ neuter and rabies clinic. We brought him home after and he was having drip after drip of blood come off of him. We were told there would be absolutely no blood. So we call them and they said bring him back Dr fox will look at him. They came back out and said he was bleeding alot they want him to stay for 36 hours and be watched so we went back and got him and brought him home and he still was bleeding everywhere. So we had to take him back again they said the 36 hours he was there there was no blood. They thought Dr fox snipped a vein durinbg surgery. The poor cat is miserable. He came home hissing and scratching because he's in so much pain. This is a horrible clinic.

Dr Fox and his staff have been a godsend to our rescue(Citizens Animal Rescue Inc) and to many other rescues and animal lovers in the area.
They will do what your animal needs not what will make them the most money. Your animal comes first even before you.
Dr Fox is sensitive, kind, and gentle.He explains things in terms you can understand.
