It has been almost a year since Rainbow Vet saved my dog, Brutus. We woke up one sunday morning and he was unable to get up or walk. Brutus is a 100lb great dane mix, we thought this was the end. My husband had to carry him to the car and my poor buddy was so scared. Rainbow took us right in and did xrays, he has bad arthritis and some slipped discs in his spine. He was 11 and we were not going to put him through surgery, which they suggested. My husband and I declined and they did not make me feel bad about that. They put him on a ton of medication and suggested laser therapy(I did not believe in this), but I was willing to try something to help "our first child". I am not a believer, he is only on minimal meds and laser therapy weekly and sometime I have to tell Brutus to calm down and stop playing with is sister so rough. He is doing so great and getting ready for his 12th birthday and I have the staff at Rainbow to thank!!!!
Dr. Fultz and Alicia were so wonderful and sweet. My wife and I were so worried about our little girl, Bella. She was so sick over the weekend throwing up everything and not eating. This was the first place that actually listened to me and showed me that they cared. Bella is almost back to normal and we could not be happier. I would recomend this place to anyone who loves their pet as much as us.
I have a friend that worked for or is still working there im not gonna put them on the spot, that told me when you choose to end your pets life they cut the head off to do studies on the brain. If you leave them behind and Sell their heads and profit off your dead pets . I had mine cremated but they wouldnt let me see my dogs body 1 day after she passed they told me i wouldnt want to see her and danced around subject. I dont know if i got my whole dog or just her neck down. Never again will i go here!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday, December 31, 2016. I took my precious cat Nottygiirl to the Rainbow Vet Hospital due to her being very sick. Our regular vet was off for the Holidays. I called around and no other vet could fit my emergency visit in. I found the Rainbow Vet Hospital online. They were quite accomaditing and fit my Nottgirl in between appointments. Unfortunately Nottygirl had a large mass and was in so much pain with little chance of surviving. In the end I chose to be kind to her and end her pain. My heart as well as my daughters who helped me care for her is broken. I will and do. Miss her greatly. The decision to put her to sleep was very painful and very difficult to make. I just want others to know that the entire staff and Dr. Garner treated Nottygirl and I with the utmost professionalism and human kindness. They were so wonderful to both of us. As a result of this I will be taking my other cat, and any future family pets back to Rainbow Vet Hospital. I also want too thank them so much. They really helped me through a very difficult time.

Firstly, if you're thinking of going to this veterinarian, please find another. My cat hadn't been feeling well and my ordinary vet couldn't fit him in due to her surgery schedule, so we brought him to Rainbow Vet. From the inept vet technicians to the condescending, mean-tempered, and dismissive vet, our experience here was terrible and heart-breaking. I informed the vet that I was willing to spend whatever it took to diagnose and treat my cat. In the end, she treated him for the wrong condition with medication that hastened his death. We had our cat there on a Friday, and by Monday, we had to have him euthanized. The medications given were completely inappropriate I have since learned after conferring with other veterinarians. Please do not take your beloved pet here. I regret my decision to immensely. There are several other emergency clinics in the area.
"We apologize about the poor experience you felt that you had here, that doctor was only here as a fill-in for a day and she has been spoken to and no longer welcomed at this hospital. We reviewed your pets medical records and based on the evidence we feel that the doctor diagnosed and treated to the best of her ability. If does not make the situation any easier and we are very sorry for the loss your loved one and he will surely be missed."
I am very dissatisfied with this vet hospital they continue to raise their prices and now they charge to send records to another vet hospital which is ridiculous a doctors office doesn't even do that. I will never go back there nor will I recommend this vet clinic to anyone else. They seem to just want money over taking care of their patients in hopes they come back to them. This isn't the first time I have heard their prices are higher than other vets around and the service hasn't been good like it use to be.
We are sorry that you feel this way about our pet care, I can assure you the pet always comes first. We understand that pet care is different than human health care(lack of insurance) - but we strive to stay comparable in the Beaver County area.
