I tried to get my Bearded Dragon seen there after I discovered a growth in his mouth. Even though I was told over the phone during the initial appointment setup that they do in fact treat Reptiles, I got the run around later that day and the next. I was called by their office repeatetly, trying frantically to refer my to another pracitce. After the second phone call I called the second one I was referred to and it ended up being a Wildlife Refuge Center, not even a Vet. Park Vet didn't even bother to do the research.....they just didn't want to see my Beardie. He could have died and they could have cared less. I ended up finding a great doctor at a practice just up the road at Falconbridge Animal Hospital. Very happy there but not at this one.
I had a great experience with the people at Park Vet. They were able to see me quickly, was in and out in an hour. They gave me lots of good information that my previous vet did not. The people who work there are so nice and clearly love animals and people!
They will let you leave your pet for the day if, like me, you work long hours, and take care of whatever needs doing, then you pick up at the end of the day. No charge for the 'boarding'. Highly recommend.

I recently moved here and had to quickly find a vet for my dog. I found a troubling lump on her on Sunday and called on Monday morning for an appointment and they saw us later that day. They made my dog feel at ease through the exam and eased my worrying mind and watery eyes. You know how tough it is when you are worried about your pet. The care they showed her and the empathy they showed me left me in awe. Without hesitation I would recommend them anyone. I hope my pup never has to go back except for annual exam but if she does I know she'll be i ngreat hands.

Both of our pets, Murphy our dog, and Max our cat, are seen at Park Vet. We have found the care there to be excellent. Recently, our dog, Murphy was run over by a car. He sustained several injuries and had to have surgery on his front leg and tail. The vets were wonderful. They stayed late, even on weekends, to take care of Murphy and be sure he was healing well. They were kind and compassionate and very thorough with their care. The charges for emergency and surgical care were fair. Murphy is now recovering and still loves to go see his friends at Park Vet. I would recommend this vet without any reservations.

I came on to let everyone know what a great Vet Hospital I found and was shocked to see all the negatives. My experience was totally different. I switched vets because I wasn't happy w/ my other one. These guys were very nice and professional. They offered to get my history from my other vet, made the appointment for the same week and said they couldn't wait to meet me and my dog Ginger - even called her by name. Then, when I got there the place is so nice inside-no smells, staff was welcoming. I agree they looked a little busy and maybe could have used another person up front, but when I checked out the same girl who helped in the room just went around and checked me out - with a big smile on her face. The Dr. was awesome, really friendly and gave me some ideas that my other vet hadn't about my pets health. Sorry the rest of you were unhappy, but I highly recommend them to anyone who wants great care for their pet.

I have found Park Vet to be extremely expensive. If you have a lot of disposable income, this place is wonderful. Their favorite saying seems to be 'to better assess the condition' and you can easily spend hundreds of dollars in cytologies, various levels of bloodwork, ultrasounds, etc. on each pet. You are best served by going in already armed with knowledge of treatment options and then fighting for reasonable courses of actions. This is not the place for practical solutions to pet health problems. I wish this level of healthcare was available for my children!

Costs too high, vets too busy to take the time to listen to owners, grumpy reception. Technically everything is there. But... this place is about high tech, don't bother the vet with the details 'cause he/she's too busy rushing to get to and charge the next patient using their inflated schedule of charges. You will be lucky to see the same vet twice.
Find a more personal place. I am.

I found that they had a real attitude problem. They ignore what you tell them about your pet and will push lots of unnecessary meds and tests. I'm sure that they deal with all kinds of people, but as a conscientious owner who is with my dogs 24/7, I think I have a good understanding of their issues and I expect a vet to take me seriously when I talk to them.

I found the provided procedures not always geared toward the health of my dogs, but likely to generate income and to cover themselves for legal matters. It is definitely not a clinic for knowledgeable and assertive pet owners, who want more than basic vet care from veterinarians.
Staff and doctors were friendly, but so are the ones in less expensive vet clinics.

I changed over to Park Vet from another local vet who I felt was too expensive for what I was getting. I can't say the prices are lower, but I feel that I truly get my $$'s worth from this group of professionals. They even send out ?aires to new clients to see how they can improve! How cool is that? My adult cat, who isn't fond of her annual visits was treated with a gentle approach, even when she was sassy! They were able to vaccinate her without stressing her out more than she already was. I have since adopted a sick kitten from the shelter and they have nursed her back to health. I was getting worried that she wouldn't make it and it was getting expensive with all the antibiotics, etc. but they explained everything so well to me that I never felt I was being taken advantage of. The proof is that my kitten is now well enough to spay!
I highly recommend Park Vet. I've seen almost all of the Dr.s there and there isn't one I wouldn't recommend.
