I can only say good things about Dr Stark and her staff. For 15 years she has cared for my various pets with both compassion and professional knowledge. I highly recommend Shades Crest Animal Clinic!

Dr. Stark and her staff have excellent attention to detail and one of the finest and most sanitary clinics I have ever visited. You are welcomed as you walk in, and have your animal seen in a quick and timely manner with the most professional evaluations to get your loving pet back to its normal healthy self! South Shades Crest Animal Clinic is a must for animal care in the Hoover area. Highly recommend!



Excellent vet!

I have been a client of South Shades Crest Animal Clinic and Dr. Stark for a roughly 10 years. I have a anxious dog and two cats (one of whom is very aggressive at the vet). Dr. Stark and her staff treat my pets like their own and treat me with respect. Treatment and diagnostic decisions have been either made together or with permission in advance. Be warned though -- my pets are my children. I love that Dr. Stark never makes me feel like I am a worry-wort pet-mom. I also love that I have somewhere to board my dog with separation anxiety when my husband and I go on vacation. We used to try pet sitters and he always got violently ill. At South Shades Crest Animal Clinic, he boards without any complications and I feel safe leaving him there. I can go on vacation without any stress as to his health. This clinic is the best in town!
