A very big thank you to Timonium Animal Hospital for seeing my dog as an emergency on 9/12/2013 evening. Your care and diagnostics have made him feel so much better after his vomiting for 3 days. Thank you very much for everything. I highly recommend this hospital.




Terrible, unethical place and I would never recommend them to anyone!

My dog had a liver problem that they assured me could be treated but a needle biopsy necessary to determine the appropriate treatment with medications. I agreed. They never called me and I had to call them after the procedure. I was told to pick her up. When arriving, I saw she had drainage tubes in BOTH lungs. They told me to take her to a 24 hour care facility. They called to make the arrangements, but refused to help financially even though I did not have the money necessary to pay for it. They told me to come up with the money or take her home and watch her die! (no kidding...that's what they told me!) I borrowed money to take my dog to the 24 hour care facility but to no avail. She was weakened beyond belief after this procedure and, after consulting 3 other veteranarian facilities, it was shown this was NOT a normal result of such a procedure. We settled out of court and I was reimbursed my money, but I lost my beloved dog in the process. They still do not admitt fault and they now claim they do not even have any records so I should not post anything against them. (per another web review). They do not even remember what they did! But I do, and I have the records to PROVE it!

Great employees, bad owner

I am writing this to bring to light the unfortunate situation that is taking place at Timonium Animal Hospital. Many of the people that work there have nothing but the best disposition toward each other, the animals they take care of, and the people bringing their animals for care. However, the owner of this practice treats her employees like second class citizens and does not give them the humane treatment they deserve. I hope for the very best for everyone that works there, but please, do not patronize this establishment any longer. The owner does not deserve to be the recepient of all of her employees' hard work.



Incredible - Loving -Thank you...

Incredible - Loving -Thank you! I have been going to Timonium Animal Hospital for 6 year. My 11 year old boxer was recently diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Gernhert in a very caring way presented my options to me. We chose to put my boxer down because we did not want her to suffer. The entire vet clinic was very supportive and empathetic during this extremely sad time. They allowed the process to occur on my time. At no time was I rushed in my decision, I actually waited 10 days. Once I did make the decision, I was able to stay with my pup during the process so she was not left alone. After, I was able to stay with my pup for as long as I needed say good-bye. A week later, they even sent a sympathy card to my house with my pups paw print on it. It was the nicest thing they could have done. I could really tell through the actions and words of everyone in the clinic, they understood how I felt and wanted to make this decision as easy as possible for me. I could not have had such a positive experience during such a difficult time in my life. Thank you so much to Dr. Gernhart and associates.

Wonderful Animal Hospital -- Review by a Long Time Client

We have been taking our dogs to Timonium Animal Hospital for 15 years. Dr. Gernhart and her staff consistently provide top quality care in an extremely compassionate environment. We have had to visit her for a number of surgeries and for management of chronic conditions and have been extremely pleased. They are very accommodating and wait times are minimal. I can't recommend this vet practice highly enough.

Marylands Best

My pets have been seeing Dr. Gernhart for almost 20yrs. I would not take them anywhere else. I have never met a more genuine, caring, compassionate person. She will recommend the best treatment for my pet, then Taylor it to my budget. The thing I like most is the straight forward honesty. No promises, just medical fact and her opinion on what her experience has shown. Then when the time must come to say good bye.. they handle me with dignity and compasion.



Best In Baltimore

We've been with Dr. Gernhart since the beginning, and would trust no one else with our beloved pets. The entire staff is knowledgable, professional, and care for our pets as if they were their own. We always receive honest, clear explanations and advice about treatment, and because of the level of care, we were able to have two dogs with significant health issues with us much longer than we could ever have hoped. They are the best, and if they could treat humans, we'd be there!

great vets

I Love Timonium Animal Hospital. I have two chow chows,Bigsley and Roxy who are both rescue dogs and I know for a fact that Dr. Gernhart has saved my Roxy's life at least twice. Everyone has been extremely helpful and friendly to me and my family. I could not have gone to a better veterinary hospital.I have even sent other people to them and they were equally as happy there. I have been taking my pets there for at least five years and hope to continue taking any future pets I may have to them for all there vet needs. Keep up the good work Timonium Animal Hospital.

Avoid at all costs

We took our cat to Timonium animal hospital because she was showing signs of being sick. Timonium Animal Hospital diagnosed our cat with a bladder infection and kidney failure. The prescribed three different medications saying that our cat could be treated very affordably and that treatment could extend her life for years. On our follow-up visit, the vet charged us for many unnecessary procedures ($80 just to take the cat's blood pressure) and gave us a ""shame on you"" attitude when we explained we were not financially able to absorb the costs of treatment. Our bill for a single month was over $1,000. Our cat died the month following despite the treatment and the vet's assurances that we could prolong her life.




I have taken my pets to Timonium Animal Hospital Hospital for several years now. The level of care that I have recieved is far beyond the level of care that I have ever experienced @ any other animal hospital. They really pay attention to the little things. I took my boxer in there 2 weeks ago because he started having seizures. Dr Gernhart and Dr Howard both helped work on his case. They have both called me since my visit to check on him (most Vets do not do that). Also, they are very understanding of any financial concerns that I had. They provided me with detailed estimates and options that fit my financial situation and were in the best interest of my pets. I would trust and value their opinion and I know that my pets are safe in their care.
