I took my cat Mickey today. He is not feeling good. Doctor Inna helped so well to understand what it can be and what needs to be done.Kindness and professionalism - the most important in care for people and pets. Thank you Dr. Inna and her very trained staff.Hoping our precious Mickey will feel better soon.
I had my first visit with Oasis Animal Hospital on Sept. 28, 2017, after just moving to Nevada from California, they were recommended to me by Henderson Pet Resort and I must say I'm very grateful they recommend me to this Vet. The staff was very friendly and helpful and most important they were wonderful with my dogs. I really like Dr. Fischer too, he paid a lot of attention to my dogs, he even got right down on the floor to be closer to them. I definitely will making this place my choice of veterinary care for my animals.
Dr.Inna at Warm Hearts Pet Hospital is one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate veterinarians you will ever find.if you're looking for a great vet that will take awesome care of your pet you won't find a better place. Her hospital is very very clean and inviting. The staff very nice. .I feel very blessed to have found her.Beware of vet clinics that won't let you see where their cages are for pets having surgery or being boarded. Her office is real nice and where the pets are kept is nice too.
Dr. Inna is the most knowledgeable and compassionate veterinarian in the valley. Warm Hearts explains it all! Highly recommen.
Dr. Owens, Lindsay and the rest of the staff at St. Rose impressed me with their competence, as well as with their kindness and caring treatment. And they all appear to truly enjoy what they do. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that our pets couldn’t be in better hands. I could not be more pleased.
We took my 11 year old Beagle (Murphy) in after he stopped eating last Thursday. After test and x-rays showed he had a large mass growing on his liver, Dr. Murphy suggested surgery immediately to try to remove it. We agreed to bring him in Saturday morning as we wanted a last night with him to say goodbye as there was a very real possibility that he would need to be put down in surgery depending on what was discovered.The surgery was complicated. The softball size mass was attached to his liver. They had to remove the mass, a portion of liver and the spleen. Dr. Murphy NEVER gave up on our dog. We brought him home Saturday night. It was a difficult evening as Murphy was very weak and in pain, but we made it through and Sunday morning he was able to get up and move around. A few short days later, he is doing truly amazing. I am now confident he will be back to himself in no time.We cannot thank Dr. Murphy and staff for not giving up on our baby and allowing us this extra time with him. We just weren't quite ready to let go.Mike, Holly, and Colby F.
Did not like the receptionist and was not treated friendly. Hate how much they support the lower quality brands of food. Science Diet and Eukanuba? Really? Don't make me feel bad about myself for feeding higher quality grain free foods!
An outstanding vet (clinic)...!You will not find a bigger "nag" then me if it comes to choosing a vet, I know too much of the profession to not see mess ups, and find it an obligation for vets to recognize what character of animal they are treating, that they explain to ME exactly what it is that they find and show me, and that they do not make ignorant mistakes...I find it truly important that they hear me as an owner, because I know and see my animal much better and more then they do.That they behave as a human and not think they are too good to talk to the stupid owner.It has taken me a while to find it here....In this clinic I walked into a spotless, spacious waiting room with a very friendly assistant.I was treated very nice, and was led into a spotless treating room, and Dr. Wallace walked in, and his first attention went to my dogs, and he instantly saw that one was nervous and the other one was not, and he took the time, all the time, to get to know her and make her feel at ease. Something I have not seen with other vets, and something that tells me that he knows what he is doing, and knows character of animals, or it would have taken him longer then 3 seconds to figure it out.He gave a near perfect description of the character of my dogs, THAT is exceptional, took all the time in the world, and talked to me about what he thought important, and we needed to look for.Again, a very friendly assistant also there, and my dogs were treated right in front of me, not an issue, just as it should be.The invoice, was normal and nothing out of the ordinary, so nothing bad to say there.I will most CERTAINLY go back there and would recommend this vet for sure, if you want a vet the knows his animals and his profession !!! He is no nonsense, but I like that, he is GOOD at what he does and he actually hears what I have to say and find important, which is a main thing.
Knowledgeable vet, however, he is also quite knowledgeable on how to rip off his clients. I found the practice to be dishonest, deceptive and unethical in terms of billing practices. I had a similar experience to another review I read where the doctor provided a variety of services for my dog without asking me if I wanted those services done. I compare it to taking your car to a mechanic with a broken transmission and then the mechanic fixing it and giving you the bill without ever asking if you wanted it fixed or letting you know how much it would cost. Luckily I was only taken for a ride in the amount of $100 but I sympathize with the other review where the person was overcharged by $700+ and the doc would not return the animals until the bill was paid. Unfortunately this doctor (who I believe is competent) is also a bit of a crook. Very dissatisfied...
The staff is always great. Snickers always enjoys getting her nails trimmed here. They know how to keep her calm and comfortable.
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
