We went to Dr. Mike for an emergency - our 17 year old boycat was in obvious distress and Dr. Mike was the closest vet to our house. Unfortunately, our boy had to be euthanized - Dr. Mike was compassionate and kind, taking us in right away even though we had not been to his office in the past. He told us what he felt was happening with our cat and explained our options and what he could do. And, while you hate to have to think of a budget when something like this happens, the fact is that Dr. Mike could've pretty much charged us an arm and a leg at the time and we would've done just about anything to make our guy feel better. Due to his age and his obvious discomfort, we chose to put him to sleep - and Dr. Mike was amazingly reasonable for this service as well as disposal. I don't know what we would've done without his compassion and reasonable pricing. I was very pleased with my previous vet, but I will be using Dr. Mike for all of my future pet care needs - he really cares for the animals and would rather see them treated well than make the extra money - and that meant everything to us at a very difficult time. I can't oversell his kindness - he was just wonderful!

My husband and I just came back from the 2011 Sugar Bowl. We stayed in the french quarter. The hotel we stayed at didn't allow dogs, so we boarded our Golden Retreiver with Dr. Mike. We went in the mornings and walked her at the Cabrini (sp??) Dog Park.
Dr. Mike cautioned us about some previous incidents at the dog park, however we found it alright and the dog owners were ""supervising"" their dogs well. We were pleased with Dr. Mike. It was obvious that he was caring and concerned for our dog. His rates are reasonable. He was recommended to us by our hotel owner/manager and I would recommend him, too.

With all due respect to the references that have been placed here before, I must disagree and advise that you seriously consider rather or not this is the vet for you. Especially, if you are looking for a new Vet.
Based on references, I left my dog with this vet for two nights and to have his yearly shots updated.
The happy healthy dog came back to me covered in marks and flea bites. He was crawling with fleas!!! I have never seen so many on something that is a domesticated animal.
My dog was two weeks away from his next Frontline treatment, and I had to call my old vet to make sure I could give it to him early. My dog was covered from head to toe in bites and fleas.
The vet disregarded his updated rabies tags, and the history I provided to him from the other vet. He gave my dog an addtional rabies booster, event though he had one a month prior.
This maybe a good vet, if you are already one of his patients, but I would recommend to anyone else. Think twice!

i have now relocated to houston and the thing i miss most is dr. mike's animal house. my cocker spaniel loved him more than any vet we have ever gone to, and if you have a cocker your know that you go often. he charges very reasonable rates unlike others and my dog was cured with one visit rather than being strung along.

My sister was Lark Bennett. My sister was honored by the SPCA and the city of New Orleans after her death for her humane acts performed on behalf of animals and those in need.
She many times found homes for the SPCA dogs or groomed them so they could find homes. DR. MIKE worked with my sister performing every service he could to help sometimes for free or at little cost when compared to the vet prices which are through the roof.
I know you are grieving sir, but you are wrong about this DR Mike. He is a devoted lover of animals.
I am sorrry for your loss.

First I must respond to the other review - YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!!!
Nietzsche was only 54 lbs....he was not unruly...He had fear aggression and dr. mike is a vet....nietzsche had been boarded with him 8 other times without any difficulties....who should i have trusted with my dog? he had enough medication to euthanize my dog, he could have given him a tranquilizer if there was a problem and taken him with him...there was no reason for him to euthanize my dog and I resent your comments...you have no idea about my dog's personality and you have no idea how dr. mike treated me after the entire situation....he was open for business less than 1 week after killing my dog!....I hope that he never does to you what i had to go through, then maybe you would respect my feelings and my dog's life a little better...to tell me that my dog was put to sleep b/c he was too big to evacuate with is disgusting and a cop out
I had boarded my dog prior to Hurricane Katrina (not for the hurricane) and was supposed to return to the city on 8/27 - the hurricane first landed where i was in florida and my flight was cancelled. I tried driving back, but the roads were closed....dr mike assured me that everything would be okay, that my dog was on the second floor and that the building was secure....the next call i get from him is to tell me that he evacuated, but put my dog to sleep because he was too big to take with him. .. he was only a 50 lb dog.
Dr. Mike is a murderer!!!! Do not trust him with your dogs. I hate myself for ever leaving my precious dog with him and will never forgive him. He was rude and disrespectful to me after the whole situation and was never apologetic. The vet board agreed with me and said that he unlawfully put my dog to sleep without permission and no medical reason for it. All I ever wanted from Dr. Mike was an apology for killing my baby and he could not care less.....do not give him a chance to do it again.
