This place has great service with extremely caring and courteous staff. We couldn't imagine better care for our dog. But, it's incredibly expensive. For literally a 20 second nail clipping, it costs $19.20. If you don't have pet insurance, like us, be sure to ask for detailed and specific pricing before any services and have your platinum card ready.

It was like love at first sight, Dr. G and Hero, my puppy. The only person that could make her still for all of the examination. The best part is that Dr. G moved back from San Francisco. I hate to go to doctors, but even my dog is willing to go to the vet!\nBTW, the office staff are really helpful and accomodating. I wish I could find such good care for me!

Chelsea Animal Hospital was ridiculously expensive...They do indeed take care of your pet and are extremely friendly and accomodating with you and your animals but the pricing is outrageous. Anything they do during the exam is an additional fee that they just tack on - be careful. You can literally walk out of there and have dropped hundreds of dollars.

I have to say that I love Heart of Chelsea ... they always get Sandler (my dog) right in, there is never a long wait, and they let me bring in my questions (which is usually a long list!) and I have never felt rushed. They always call the day after a visit to check up and I have never felt pressured to give Sandler any ""extras"" especially because I am on a tight budget. Sandler and I have moved around a lot so we have been to many different vet's. I was never really happy until we came to Heart of Chelsea. Everyone is so friendly and helpful!! \nEverytime we walk by 18th street. Sandler stops and sits and won't move because he wants to go in and say hi! I couldn't believe it, I have never had a dog that actually LIKED going to the vet! Heart of Chelsea is a great place. I strongly recommend it!

HOCAH has given excellent care to our Brussels Griffin since day one. We are in the process of applying to a dog run and the staff has been very helpful with the process; even going so far as to contact the dog run on our behalf.\n\nAlways professional and curteous.

Hi -my name is Maxie, I am a 13 year old english bulldog who loves coming to the Heart of Chelsea Vet. The last few years I have developed a few problems, as any senior citizen might and I have been treated like royalty by the staff and doctors. Dr. Siebert does acupuncture on me weekly and it helps my arthritis a lot. I feel much better when I leave and friskier too. The entire staff makes me feel welcome and the atmosphere is always good. The reception desk folk are always friendly and helpful and one good thing that I did not find at my last vet, is that they always call and check in every few days to see if I am in tip top shape or if anything is wrong. Now, that's service! Well I have to give this place 5 stars and recommend it to all my dog and cat friends...and their moms and dads too. By the way, my dad, Pete agrees .

I just recently got my 8 week old puppy from a rescue center and when i got him, he was very sick and tired. I took him to heart of chelsea (following the other reviews on this site) and they cured him! The reception was extremely friendly and knowledgeable (i felt like they could have been doctors too from the phone conversation i had) and was able to get me appt that same day i called. The assistants were very friendly and the doctor herself was amazing. I took my puppy home that night and he was bouncing around healthy and happy as can be! They also went a step further, my baby pup had some behavior issues and i called them because i really didn't know where to go, and they provided me tips and even gave me 2 trainers numbers. I just had my first training session with my pup and i swear he's like a changed pup! he stopped barking and everything and he's even started to understand the concept of housetraining.

I usually do not feel compelled to write reviews for businesses. But I was overwhelmed to do so with the violation I felt at this place. I brought my kitten here that I adopted from AC&C in NYC. I came in for a FREE checkup that I was alotted. I was told to bring a stool sample. I now realize this is so they could make some money out of me while I was there. They sampled it, and found NOTHING wrong with it. Yet still perscribed me some medication for her. It was uneccessary, and in my opinion unhealthy to give me pet medicine she did not even need. They told me to give it to her ""just in case"" she had something. (Even though she has all her vaccinations and is an indoor cat) All in all, I ended up paying over $50 for a FREE checkup when there was nothing wrong with my pet! This place takes deceptive measures to take advantage of you and rob you of every penny they can.\n\nAlso, a side note. If you notice there are either glowing reviews of this place, or the miraculous coicendence of being insanely overcharged. Do not believe these ""amazing"" reviews. They are most likely writtien by employees themselves since they obviously monitor these reviews. \n\nHere is my message to this business' owners, stop spending so much time managing your public relations issues, and actually improve your service for the customers you manage to get inside your doors. Just a tip, it is not good business to violate the customers you actually do have. \n\nI keep receiving reminders in the mail to update my cats shots. I will NEVER give another penny to this disgraceful place. \n\n

Don't go. This place did constant ""guess work"" to try and diagnose my dog. It cost me hundreds and hundreds of dollars, and weeks later, he is still suffering. I never had the same vet twice, always different, always guessing. Don't make the same mistake. Treat your dog well and do your research.

I had been looking for a vet that was a combination of holistic and traditional healing. I ended up finding Heart of Chelsea after having to take my cat to the emergency room because she was gagging and drooling. I dealt with 3 of the veterinarians at Heart of Chelsea (Drs. Siebert, DePauw and Gabriel - please excuse any misspellings). They took great care of Ariel (and me) and they listened to me and answered all my questions. It looks like Ariel had a viral infection. We started going to Heart of Chelsea on Monday and today (Friday) she seems to be pretty much herself again. I'll be taking my 5-month-old kitten to Heart of Chelsea tomorrow and would recommend them to anyone.
