This is the worse medical facility for animals. I took my granddaughter's 5 year old chihuahua because she was pregnant and bleeding, the doctor said she was not pregnant but had a serious infection that required emergency surgery. the cost would be $1400 or she would die before morning. I knew she was pregnant and told the doctor that her stomach was bulging and moving, she told me that she was the vet and certainly she would know if the dog was pregnant. We asked for antibiotics, scheduled an appointment with another vet and took the dog home. After a couple of hours she delivered 3 puppies all were dead, the new vet said she did not have an infection of the uterus but rather was having stress labor. I did go back to VCA clinic in Upland, CA and spoke with someone in charge who stated they stood by the doctor's diagnosis that the dog was not pregnant, I then proceeded to show her the puppy that wasn't suppose to exist and asked what would she call it. I was asked to leave.

If I could leave no stars I would. I called while on my way to have my newborn puppy put to sleep because her intestines were on the outside of her stomach. They wanted 174.00, I called another vet.. they charged me 22.50, gave us paw prints, flowers to plant and were so kind and compassionate to my crying girls. I will never call this place again. Money hungry all the way!!

I recommended Pound Vet to anyone. The Management and employees are always very caring. They don't just treat your animals and then release them, they connect with all of the animals that are brought to anyone their clinic. Thank You for all that you do. :--)

I take my three Chihuahuas to VCA in Wausau, and I have had nothing but wonderful service there. The ladies there treat my dogs with kindness and my little ones are not the friendliest to strangers. I Have always get in right away and when I have had emergencies I was able to get in within the hour. I have also been able to hold off on payment until the end of the week before when I was short on cash when I had an emergency come up before my paycheck came in. I have never ever had a bad experience with them and I would not take my dogs anywhere else. I did however go with my mother to her vets in Athens and watched her vet treat her little yorkie like a rag doll, which only reinforced my good feelings about my vets. I would recommend VCA in Wausau WI to anyone I see with pets.

Exaggerated illness and double the price

I took my dog there for treatment. The diagnoses was correct but they exaggerated the urgency in which surgery was needed and wanted payment up front for her treatment. I had taken my dog there because my normal vet was already closed for the day so I decided to wait and speak with my vet before making a decision. The following day my vet saw my dog and scheduled a surgery for 2 days later. The cost quoted at VCA was double the amount my regular vet charged and the first question out of his mouth wasn't regarding payment for service. I'm glad I waited to see him rather than rushing with the decision at VCA. They seem to be more focused on what they can make off of your pets rather than treating them.

VCA Black Mountain Animal Hospital : terrible service, my dog needed minor medical service and was taken to the back room where another dog was, and got into a fight with it. My dog suffered many injuries and I was told a simple sorry and some lame excuse how the "dog" got loose on its own (obviously No supervision) and required the staff to beat both dogs with a broom handle causing cuts, swelling, and my dog to limp and whimper for days. No compensation or compassion was offered and still charged FULL price for services. This place is the worst animal care in the world, EVER !!! I wish there was a negative star rating.

I am a proud owner of a "GIANT FLEMISH" rabbit. She needed services.. spaying, teeth and toenails. I phoned several vets in my area. THis facility was the only one who answered all my question about exotic health correctly. What drugs are used for only rabbit use.. can a rabbit throw up, When should her food and water be removed before surgery(by the way is NEVER) A rabbit metabilism is so fast if removed could shut down her digestive system. All answers so different than if she was a cat or dog. Thank you Dr. Flinkstrom! Sophia is doing well!



this place is honestly the bes...

this place is honestly the best place ive ever took any of my pets...i had an emergance today and instead of denying me and my dog...they worked us in with in 10 minutes and was more then helpful with everything they did...they were all unbelieveably nice and i will go there for as long as i an stationed on this island...and they only charged me a fraction of what i thought they should have...they cleaned my dogs neck wound...shaved her....gave her an antibiotic...gave me a numbing gel...and even let me take her to the Drs room so she would wake up from the anistisia...all all for 75$...that is going above and beyond in my book and i would tell anyone anytime to go to them...they have taken care of all of her needs sence i got her and for almost a year now and ive NEVER had a bad experiance...A HUGE thanks to everyone that works there for treating my baby girl with the love and attention i give her mysself...u dont find that most places



DO NOT Take any pets here....B...

DO NOT Take any pets here....Beside the exorbinate fees they want to charge they do not care about the feelings of you as the owner or really of your pet. The technician handled my cat nicely, but the vet really did not want to touch her....(a barely six pound cat) They took x-rays and recommended surgery and blood test and gave me an estimate of $1100.00. They made it sound as if I would lose her. They asked me if I was refusing the surgery....they finally gave me the antibotic I asked for and I called another five star veternarian and got the blood test and evaluation and surgery for 1/3 of that and it was only an addition 1/2 hour drive. I am so glad I did not let them do any more. Oh, and just the visit, the one shot and the x-rays were $260.00....!



Horrible concern for my dog and me

This place plays on your distressed emotional condition to try and rip you off! They said my pet wouldn't make it out of the parking lot, that he would die from his "serious condition". He's still here 3 months later, and, by the way, the other vet was 180 degrees opposite of your diagnosis, and you both were looking at the SAME X-rays!
