I had been taking my cat to Lakewood for a over a year. My cat fell ill suddenly, I took him into the vet & he tells me this is due to FIV AIDS! That he tested positive a year ago!! #1 I was never told about this #2 it wasn't in any of my previous paper work #3 prior to getting a 2nd cat I told them that I wanted to adopt another cat & they told me "great, we could recommend a place for you to go to adopt!" Instead of saying no you can't take in another animal because your cat has AIDS! My cat had been there for multiple issues never did they mention this was all due to AIDS. The vet said if I had approved a blood test a few months back they could of caught it in time! After spending $700+ in dental work I thought it was a routine blood test so I thought it could wait. Again, they didn't say we need to get this done because he has AIDS. Sad story is my cat had to be put down after a day & a half & this vet still didn't even mention bringing in my other cat to have him tested!



My 6 year old pup, Iszybella, ...

My 6 year old pup, Iszybella, recently started seeing Dr Sandler for skin allergies and I must say that I am so impressed with his office! I don't typically write reviews, however it makes me so excited that he and his office staff sincerely loves every animal that comes through their doors. On our first visit, the vet tech kept Iszy entertained while I talked to Dr Sandler and then took her for a walk so that I could check out and not have her pulling on me. C' many offices do you know that would do that!? The office is clean and organized and you can tell that ALL of the staff really work as a team.

As far as treatment, they said that they had seen several dogs with the breakouts that she had. He prescribed her 10 days of medication and so far her skin is looking great! Out of the multiple vets that we have taken Iszy to, Dr Sandler is also the first vet that recommended allergy testing to get to the root of the problem (and hopefully lower our overall vet expenses). Surprising right? So far, I would HIGHLY recommend giving them a try- it's worth it- and I'm sure you will see it too as soon as you walk in the office :)



Dr. Sandler is the greatest!!!

Dr. Sandler has so much compassion and love for animals! He helped me with Rocky, who had the last stages of feline distemper. Dr. Sandler, instead of leaving my baby at the clinic, took my cat home with him and stayed up with him all night to help him through the night. I will always have a fond place in my heart for Dr. Sandler as he truly cares for our pets and loves animals very much.
