Why do they have 2 listings on YP? Is that a ploy as well??? Money making scammers! I know MANY friends with first hand experience that feel the same, but we know not many people post their complaints. I am! I went through this with them a few years ago after needing surgery for my other dog (initial estimate of $1800 became almost $3000 bill without consultation, yes that does make a difference!) Brought our new puppy in for the wellness package as they seemed reasonably priced for the package deal. And all I received the entire time was judgement, attitude, incompetence and differing stories. For a healthy problem-free puppy! Now I was just denied 3rd party flea & heartworm treatment because "she has to have a wellness check up and test" and then "it's the law" oh really, nice now I am being threatened with the law in order for you to make money! She is 14 months old, had her last wellness check up this Spring, was spayed 2 months ago (with another check-up) and has had continual prevention since we got her. BS. I cannot stand this business and their unethical business values. I found Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode, if you have normal animal/vet needs go here please!
The staff at Blue Ravine Animal Hospital are kind and caring. The facility is clean and relaxing. The vets there are excellent and very professional.
Took my ailing cat here. After extending her stay of a week, told me she was too ill and we put her down. She was very ill but they gave us that bit of hope because apparently they weren't 100% sure. Ok, I understood that. Heartbroken as I was. Then same exact thing happened with our dog! The exact same treatment modality.! Same exact diagnosis, prognosis and final treatment. This occurred within 6 mos. of each other. Very heartbreaking and costly. They were completely different illnesses, btw. But guess what, a friend of mine took her cat there and got the exact same song and dance. She decided to do what we should have, she took her cat home and nursed it back to health. She is a nurse by profession. Our situation was different, were dealing with the loss of a family member so we weren't in good shape to make clear decisions and relied on our vet. It was a mistake I'll always regret, whether it was the best or not.
I was very disappointed in our experience at Blue Ravine for a second time. Although the front desk staff was great, the Dr. we saw was less than desirable.
Our dogs "check-up" by the Dr. lasted about 3 minutes, all it included was him listening to her heart, a quick look at her teeth and making me feel stupid because a "hot spot" on my dogs leg become so infected that it was going to scar and she would never grow hair in that area again. I've seen this type of wound before, definitely have training and have seen infected wounds before, this was nothing close to infected.
When I questioned both the Dr. and tech about the need for an antibiotic to be prescribed for a what is a "hot spot" on my dogs leg, I was told I had to get the antibiotic. Rather than seeing if a steroid shot, or even steroid cream and cone would be sufficient to heal the area, now, I have a $60 antibiotic that will get thrown away because it won't get used. (I tried that method and my dog's leg is healing very well). Wish I would have been a little more persistent. We were also charge almost $60 for shaving and cleaning an area that was about the size of a half dollar, really! Total bill was $200 for an appointment that lasted 10 minutes, included a sub-par check-up, wound cleaning, and prescription that my dog didn't require.
I gave them the benefit of a doubt because everyone has their moments, but for the second time I was talked down too and made to feel as though I am a horrible pet owner. I guess paying for the big beautiful facility out weighs good customer service and the animals best interests.

I have gone to this animal clinic for 4 years now and have found the staff to be very caring and concerned about not only my four pets health, but also found the staff paitent in taking time to explain procedures and test results.
My family has used their servces for several years and also have found the staff to be caring and compasionate.
I have had a couple of very ill pets and they have worked in getting me to the proper specialist for my pets needs and provided any follow up care I need.
I would advise everyone to take their pet to Blue Ravine Animal Hospital.
I love their new hospital. There is more waiting room and a larger counter area so that anyone with not so social pets can feel comfortable in the hospital.
check them out and see for yourself...... ;-)

DO NOT take your pets here!!!!
I've taken pets to Dr. Sweet for many years and used to have complete trust in her and her staff. Since she moved to the new up-scale building, hired more vets, and had to increase her staff, she is no longer the hands on vet that I use to trust.
They charged us for services that were not performed (our dog visit) (they said they owe us services that we paid for already and then sent us an additional bill) and charged for unnecessary extras (our cat visit). Once shame on us. After the second time, we're taking our pets and our wallets somewhere else.
I'd rather spend my money for the care of my pets and not for the cost of their high rent building.
