I took my dog there because he was not acting like himself. They took blood qnd x-rays. The dr. Told me it was because he had an infection in is prostate and needed to be neutered. So we scheduled the surgery. After the surgery he was a lot worse. He wouldn't stop bleeding so we took him back in and then they told us that he may have been poisoned. Then they charge us outrageously for plasma and blood transfusions x2. Tons of pills trying to get his blood to clot and nothing would work. I took him to the Vet on Centerville rd in Gardnerville and they reviewed his paperwork and said they should have NEVER done surgery on my dog after seeing his initial blood work. Because of the poison in his system he could not recover from surgery! A short time later he had to be put down due to there mistake. I still cry to this day and now they have sent me to collections for his cremation!!!# i have paid thousands to them only for them to kill my Skooby. How does a business get a way with this?
We moved to Nevada in May of 2015 and took our dogs to Carson Valley Veterinary Clinic to establish them as patients. We were greeted kindly and professionally by the staff and the Doctor. We were told by a friend to ask for Dr. Gorrindo, and we were not disappointed at all! He took the time to talk with us and to learn about our pets and their past history. We have been back a few more times and have seen Doctor Schecht (?) and she too was very kind and very knowledgeable. All in all, I would recommend this Vet Clinic to anyone who was looking for a good Vet!
I wouldn't trust my pups to anyone else. My puppy likes to go there just to visit. Great, caring team of vets!
I've been taking my animals here for years and up until a few years ago, they used to be a fantastic hospital. I've noticed since they've gone corporate that customer service has declined and its next to impossible to get anyone you need on the phone. Plus they won't take any emergencies without an appointment. I used to really love taking my animals here until the last week. I brought one of my cats in to get neutured and our 'nurse' was a young lady named Tylar. My cat loves going to the vet and is not sketchy about people at all, but Tylar was so rough with my cat that he was shaking. She was also very rude to me and if I didn't like the Dr. Talbot, I would've taken my cat elsewhere. I also witnessed her slam a drawer into another employee's leg without apologizing and made our experience very poor. This girl makes me wander what kind of people they are hiring to care for our pets and I will not be back here.
At one time (when Dr. Erika was here) I had only glowing compliments for this hospital. They still have a good staff; it's just that they've taken on too many patients, I suppose. Our dog has diabetes and Cushings and needs monthly expensive tests. We are very careful to watch for any exacerbated symptoms, and when we feel we do, we try to schedule the appropriate tests. So when they tell me their doctors are available, but booked solid for three days, it's not just frustrating, it's very stressful! Frankly, the only reason we don't make a change at this point is because they are the only vet that is open seven days, and with all of Bo's medical issues, we need that window. What a difference one person makes!
