Dr. Wilkerson was great: smart and empathetic - and this even though he delivered some terrible news to my family. We unfortunately had to put down our beloved golden retriever due to pancreatic cancer that had spread throughout his body. I would never wish this experience on even my worst enemy, but if you ever have to go through it- I hope you get a Vet as compassionate as understanding as Dr. Wilkerson and the staff at Girard Vet. (not to mention the prices were SO much less compared to the suburbs where we used to go - and he saved us costly surgery that wouldn't have helped as he did chest x-rays before sending us to the specialist). The whole staff was friendly, helpful and really made the whole trip as "good" as it could possibly have been. Thank you everyone at Girard - We will ABSOLUTELY keep bringing our other dogs here - and will always think of Coop every time we go, knowing it was the last place we were able to be with him and give him the dignified and painless send off that he deserved.

I can't say enough about these gals and guys. I called Crying on Wendnesday around noon, and My Cat Lover was in their office being triaged by 2. We thought for sure he was going to have to be put to sleep, as we had been dealing with him having a very agressive cancer in his arm, for about 6 months, and it refused to go away, after removal of the lump (also performed by Girard Veterinary Clinic). Instead of putting him to sleep they insisted/ strongly suggested we amputate the leg. Now it is Friday and he is back home, without his leg BUT STILL WITH US. Threw all of this very stressful event for our cat and us, they have been positive and extremely kind, to both our cat and my partener and myself. I have been to many Vets and there is just no comparison. My Partner and myself know our cats but have little knowledge of this extreme medical condition that we have all been threw with Lover (the cats name). When we needed a knowledgeful vet and clinic on our side, that is just what we got with Girard Veterinary Clinic. There is only 5 stars on this rating but we would give them 100 stars if we could!!!!!!

Wow, my first time here. I took my pug, Cleo here because she looks like she has eye infection. It turn out she doesn't. The vet makes sure that there is nothing else wrong with her. I had to wait for an hour but it's worth waiting. And the vet fee and medicine are very reasonable price.
