I have been taking all my precious pets to Dr. Kandra Jones for over 25 years. She is the most knowledgeable and kindest person and veterinarian that I have ever known. She always shows her concern and does not sugarcoat the diagnosis but tells you the truth. When I started rehabilitating wild animals, she always charged me a nominal fee if any. When I got a raccoon that I decided to raise as my pet, she was the ONLY vet that was knowledgeable of the treatment for him and the ONLY vet that was more than happy to care for him. Since that time, I have raised 4 other raccoons. TobywanCOONobie is still Dr. Jones' patient after 16 years. She has also cared and treated all my dogs and cats during that period of time. I would NEVER take my babies to anyone else. I love them way to much!
I am also very pleased with all her staff. They are always very cheerful and helpful. If I have any requests for information, they always get right back to me. Dr. Jones always returns my calls when I need to speak to her and she always calls me on how my pet is doing or if she has additional questions. When one of my pets passes, she sends my husband and I a sympathy card.
She is not just ANY veterinarian, she is the BEST!
God Bless you Dr. Jones,
Valerie and John Mayfield
I have been taking my pets to Mandarin Veterinary clinic for over a decade. When I first moved to Mandarin I tried two other vets before I found one I (and my pets) were happy with - and I could not be happier with Dr. Jones. She has treated my cats with care, skill and concern and helped us all through trying times. My cat Tikki had cancer and Dr. Jones did chemo with him and he lived a long time after the cancer. I had years more with a beloved pet due to those treatments. Dr. Jones takes great care of our cats (Tigger, Genji and KC). KC had a punctured eyeball and Dr. Jones did very delicate eye surgery and saved her eye. I think the clinic, the staff and Dr. Jones are great.

We took our pets here for about 5 years. Care in the beginning was standard. As my poodle mix started getting older they treated her for cushing disease which she had but the outcome was not good. She lost a lot of weight and started throwing up so I completely took her off the med. She gained back her weight and seem to do better without the med. Second time around with the same dog. The dog was having a hard time breathing. I was not sure if the dog would make it through the night. had mentioned that maybe putting her down while in the office might be the right thing to do but they said no. Because they did not have any expertise in the area I was told take the dog home and if she did not make it then it was her time to go. The dog made it through the night and the next day I took her to the specialist in OP. My dog has holes in her lungs where the air was escaping into her body cavity. She stayed there and they helped her but unfortunately after bringing her home she relapsed and we had to put her to sleep. After that experience I stopped going there. The office staff is friendly but slow. I found the vet to be very brash when you questioned her. If you love your pet do not go here.

The people that work at Mandarin Vet Clinic are good and have a good attitude. We were happy at the beginning to have found a doctor that cared about customers, but unfortunately we ended up being not very happy at the end.
Our cat was diagnosed with sarcoma therefore she had a surgery. Unfortunately her recovery was very slow because the wound did not want to close completely. She was put down 5 times to re-stitch her over and over until finally after more than a month, the decision was made for her to stay at the vet's office for 2 weeks. Well, the wound close but not completely, she still has a 1 inch open wound and when she was taken to the office to have Dr Jones remove her stitches, Dr. Jones decided to pull the collar off and said the cat was done and fine. Our cat had some scab around that was holding the wound close; when Dr Jones removed the collar she licked and took the scab off and now you can see the hole again. We are not happy because you cannot say to a patient you are ready to go when your wound is still open and not completely healed after 2 months now. We decided to take our cat to another doctor.
