Dr. Sandy has been taking care of my special needs dog for years. I can't imagine taking him somewhere else. What a success story from one little store front down the street to the gorgeous building they have now.

We've been taking our dogs to Animal Health Clinic and Dr. Sandy for 13 years. They have a top notch facility and we trust both Dr. Sandy and Dr. K to do what is best for our pets. We do yearly blood work yearly and find that very helpful in finding issues that can usually be dealt with. They always can get us in to see a sick dog on a moments notice. The staff is friendly and both Dr. Sandy and Dr. K are very informative about treatment plans.
We've been to different Vets throughout the years and we highly recommend Animal Health Clinic for your pets needs. They always give you an estimate of services and if you are not comfortable with the cost they always leave it up to you to decide. They are very thorough in their examinations and have very up to date equipment. If they can't provide a service (such as ultrasounds) they set you up with a specialist.

Sadly I agree with other reviewers about the money issues. This was the first and will be the last time I use this business. I had taken in a stray cat and before adopting out wanted to ensure he had his shots and was healthy. I normally would use my current vet -- Briarwood Veterinary in Grand Blanc --- FANTASTIC group --- but couldn't get in during the time I needed. So I tried this one. The long and short -- the first visit ended with me challenging the bill as I was going to be charged for a fecal test not even performed. The second visit I was told was only for a 2nd vaccination and the original fecal test. I was ticked when they gave me the estimate. There was a wellness check that was never explained to me, an OSHA fee which has NEVER been on any vet bill I've had, and an additional vaccination my cat needed that I was never told about. But to top it off the technician was EXTREMELY unprofessional, throwing a tantrum twice and slamming doors in the process. I refused some of the "treatments" including the wellness check and even then they charged me for a technician fee. RIDICULOUS!!! They clearly pad the bill and expect people to just lay down and take it. I HIGHLY recommend using another veterinarian office. So sorry I went to this business.

Outstanding Service

Animal Health Clinic and it's staff truly are the best/most caring of veterinarian clinic/hospital that I trust with my pets. They truly go above and beyond their duties as a whole staff! My pets and I are always treated with smile and a friendly hello from my beautiful dogs (Zeus and Babette) my little hamsters (Peanut and Woodstock) and my 26 parrot Mogley! I would like to take this opportunity to wish the staff a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and to thank them for all they do!

It's hard for me to give a Fenton business such a low review as we always support local business and went here instead of driving to our normal vet about an hour away.



Animal health Clinic may be good at throwing "Ladies Night Events" but not so good with a precious family member... your pet.



-- Overpriced (when I saw the bill when they did little to nothing my jaw dropped, my regular vet would have been 50% of what they charged)



-- Doctor tried to act like she cared but it was painfully obvious she did not. Only saw the doctor for about a minute then she disappeared and a tech came in the room. Still got charged the $45.00 "doctor consulting fee" (in addition to the other expensive charges). Basically the Doc did nothing and didn't care but tried to fend otherwise.



-- You will pay for a doc but receive a tech that has no idea what's going on (but she is nice)



-- Take your pet to a REAL doctor that will REALLY tend to your loved pet



My pet was very sick and I asked "what else we can do?". She says go home and give him the medicine and call us in the morning.



So I go home and look up what I could do to help my pet and I saw ALL THESE OPTIONS that the doctor and tech never even recommended! :(



I call back in the morning to let the them know that we have all these other options and "why didn't the doc treat my pet with the other options" (in a nice respectful way) all I got was a tech (not a doc) on the phone who puts me on hold then comes back and says... "I"m sorry that's all we can do."



Huh... but I just mentioned some things that you didn't do that could and still should be done? And she didn't care ... just basically said "Oh well" in so many words.



So instead of prescribing my pet the med's he Needs to help him stay alive (which is something she should have given him in the first place) she Refused to do so and pretty much gave up on my little guy.



I DO NOT recommend you taking your well loved pet to this vet as they only see you as a quick $. And it has to be the most expensive vet I've every been to. When I saw the bill my jaw dropped for the little to Nothing that they did.



And I was okay with paying a $1000 bill if it got that high as I just want my buddy better... but after I called the next day to mention he was not well and to ask why the doc did not do some of the treatments that should have been done (after educating myself) I received no answer and the doc / tech could not of cared less.



I would pay anything to save my little buddy even if it was overpriced but she refused to give my pet the proper care and it was apparent she could care less which hurt even more.



I'm so disappointed right now cause I could have drove to my vet and she would have taken him in for the night, give him a IV, a shot of antibiotics and the Real medicine he needs but instead...



... I went to Animal Health Clinic and I deeply regret it.





Very disappointed :(

I have been using Dr Sandy and Dr Susan at the Animal Health CLinic for over 8 years now. The entire staff is WONDERFUL!!!!! Always feel my pets and myself are treated with the utmost care, respect and sympathy during those hard times. They have given me options and thats more than most vets do. They always give 2 and 3 and 4 options for the situation so i can choose whats best for me and my pet. They never say "This is what we are going to do". I have met lots of other vets who do that. I believe options are better. Thats what I love about Animal Health Clinic. They are extended family!

Shopping for a new vet I called Fenton

Shopping for a new vet I called Fenton Vet clinic, the location and hours were perfect for me. Since cost is a definite factor I called in advance to get a run down on pricing for vaccinating my dog and 2 new kittens.

All of their rates were higher then my current vet but the Saturday hours were a plus for me. I was told that to vaccinate each kitten it would be $132.00 each, I thought that was high, but I had no idea exactly how high. What I was not told on the phone was that kittens vaccinations require a series of 3 shots which would mean 3 visits and at this office they charge an office call per kitten per visit, I did not find that out until I got there for our appointment.

To charge office call fees of $35.00 for each kitten for the second and third vaccination visits is ridiculous, since my visit I have called two other vets in our area and they also say it's ridiculous to do so, those vets both charge an office call for the first initial visit but not the second and third because it is just not right and quite frankly a rip off to do so, any office that does should not get your business.

Long story short, within 10 minutes of arriving for our appointment an emergency came in which I do understand happens, I have sympathy for the pet parent of the injured animal. But, what this meant for me was, that an appointment that should have taken less than one hour ended up taking three. Even though the vet was busy with the emergency I should not have been left waiting. They did appologize but seriously three hours and all they can say is ""sorry"" and ""Thanks for being so patient"". What choice did I have it was some sort of hostage situation. Given my final bill, what I should have done was get up and leave after the first hour I could have saved myself a tremendous amount of time and money.

My appointment for one dog rabies vaccine, heartworm test and meds and flea treatment for 3 months and two kittens first vaccines, and flea treatment ended up costing me $385.00. YIKES! Every vet I called said that was outrageous, especially the office call fee for returning vaccinations. Oh, and just for the record, to spay a kitten at this office I was told it would be $250.00. Can you say highway robbery? Call any other vet in town and get thier pricing, you will see what I mean. The highest price I found at the other vets I called was $147.00 and that included the 3rd series of vaccinations.

My advice: If you have ridiculous sums of money to spend on your pets then this office may be perfect for you. But, for me since I have other bills to pay each month and do not have the luxury of money to waste, I will be going to one of the other vets that I called, I simply cannot afford this one.

The techs, vet and staff are all very nice, the facility is nice, the location and hours are great but for me the cost is far too high.

My dad (89 years old) has a yorkie that we have been taking to Dr. Sandy & Dr. Susan for about a year. My dad is a little grumpy & outspoken but the ladies there always treat him with respect (quite a feat). But beyond that & most importantly they are just amazing with his dog. They always explain all of the charges, often offering to get more that one estimate for my dad & are always willing to answer our many questions. Sometimes things seem to cost a lot but once explained we can understand the reasoning behind it, and really the final decision is ours. I know my dad appreciates the time they take with him to explain things in a way he understands. He says he'll never go anywhere else with his little Punkin. Thank you ladies for taking great care of us!

They charged me $55.00 only to tell me it would cost $400.00 +



They charged me for absolutely nothing that I couldn't have done with a little research first.



I didn't get any LUBE before I got screwed

claimed iconBusiness Response05/07/2012

While I appreciate this clients comments, they do not reflect our actual fee structure or what is actually being charged. At AHC we perform a full physical examination on each pet presented and discuss findings and options with each owner. We then offer care plans which outline what we are recommending and what it will cost the owner if they decide to procede. Our consultation/physical exam charge is $45 and there is no charge for care plans, many times we offer multiple care plans due to financial constraints. Without a full physical exam, there is no way to offer a diagnostic or treatment plan to an owner.
