I am only writing this review after not 1, but 2 bad experiences with Forsyth Animal Hospital. The first time was a year ago when our dog had some behavioral issues. Seeking advise to help calm our beloved family dogs anxiety issues in which he had snapped and growled at us a handful of times...Forsyth County Animal Hospitals Dr. Wood who is also the Medical Director for the Forsyth County Humane Society, advised us to euthanize our dog. I was quite taken back as I thought a vet would suggest this measure as an absolute last result. We certainly did not take her advise, and over the past year worked lovingly with him helping him to feel more secure. This week we again had a visit with Dr. Wood to look at a skin ailment on our dog. Let me mention here that that same dog recently had three shots at a shot clinic and behaved perfectly...but when Dr. Wood approached our dog he growled. He did not snap, or threaten to bite. He growled. Which for an animal with a tender spot is completely understandable. Now I am not defending our dog growling. I wish he didn't. But the point is Dr. Wood was enraged. I proceeded to get a harsh lecture about how my dog nearly but her in the face, which was a total exaggeration. She said, "Didn't I talk to you a year ago about what you should do with this dog?!" I don't know, maybe it's me, but I would think a vets go to wouldn't be to euthanize a beloved family pet upon a simple growl. I think my advise would be for Dr. Wood to find a different career.

We found Forsyth Animal Hospital and Dr. Avra by accident and we are so thankful that we did. Our Chihuahua fell down 3 stairs over a weekend. On Monday morning, after still hopping around all day Sunday, we took him to vet office close to our house (our regular vet is more of a well clinic so they told us they couldn't see us for an injury). Upon getting an x-ray, we were given the devastating news that he'd broken 3 bones in his paw. This vet referred us to an Emergency vet in Alpharetta and told us to expect surgery involving pins and screws. She warned us that it would likely cost **thousands** of dollars.



After going back and forth with the referral clinic (I never had a good feeling about them from the start) I was able to get an appointment a few days later, fully expecting surgery. The morning of the appointment I couldn't remember my appointment time so I Googled the clinic to get their phone number. The first thing I saw in the Google results were reviews...very, very bad reviews. Stories of being ripped off, stories of pets dying because of poor care, enough to scare me into canceling the appointment. But one of the last reviews mentioned Forsyth Animal Hospital as a great place that really cares for your pet, so I decided to give them a call.



The lady who answered the phone quietly listed to my story, through tears and sniffles, and when I finally finished sharing our predicament she assured me that Dr. Avra could help us. He wasn't in the office, but she had been texting him while I was talking and he told her he'd meet me at the office later that morning. I immediately had a sense of comfort, and I hadn't even met the doctor yet.



When I arrived, I was greeted by several staff members who immediately starting gushing over my Sammy. They all petted him, talked to him, and I really felt like they cared for us. Dr. Avra did a thorough evaluation and it was his recommendation that surgery was NOT the only option. In fact surgery would likely not produce much more of a positive outcome that simple casting could provide, given that our pet wasn't a super active dog (he's not running with me daily or a hunting dog, etc). So we casted his leg and so far Sammy is going great and we spent a couple of hundred dollars rather than several thousands of dollars!



We just went in for our 2-week follow up and were greeted and treated with the same hospitality that we received on our first visit. I can not say enough how happy I am that I found the recommendation for Forsyth Animal hospital and trusted my gut instinct to cancel the other appointment.



Overall, what I've realized after having our first pet injury/sickness is that having a family doctor for your fur babies is very similar to having a good pediatrician for your kids. You need someone who you can trust, who won't rip you off, who truly cares about the patient (and their family), and who makes you feel comfortable - I have found that with Dr. Avra and Forsyth Animal Hospital!!! I highly recommend them. You and your pet will love them!!!

You won't be disappointed at FAH! Dr. Avra did surgery on my 15 year old cat, Prinni, and he did a wonderful job. Her tumor and teeth removal went exceptionally well. I would not hesitate to recommend FAH to others. The staff was friendly and the clinic was very clean. That's very important to me!
