If I could have this place shut down, I would.We brought my cat in to find out why he lost so much weight out of nowhere and why we have been finding blood spots through out the house.The vet assured us it was just a dental issue and they pulled a few of his teeth.They told us they did "blood work" and everything came back normal.They gave medicine after the dental procedure which ended up speeding up the growth of an already existing tumor in my cats head!Within 2 weeks we took him to another vet because we continued to find blood and he appeared to be in a lot of pain. This new vet explained to us what was REALLY wrong with him and how our only option was to put him down. Not only did the Knightswood Animal Hospital get a diagnosis very wrong, to the point where my family and I had to lose one of its members, but they made it an excruciatingly painful experience for him! Please, spare yourself the heartache and do not take your pets here. They are liars and I wish I had known sooner!

Hi, thank you very much for taking care of my little puppy. The family was so worried because of his condition but you did your best to cure him.

Horrible,

If I could give this place less than one star, I absolutely would. I wish I would have seen the star rating before taking my poor puppy to this place. My initial visit, ,my pup was diagnosed with upper respiratory infection. She was given her first round of pills and set up for a follow up. At this point, the medication was not working. So, the doc decides to give her the SAME medication to our displeasure, as we asked to have something stronger because she was still vomiting everyday, several times a day. After the 2nd round of medication and no progress, we called the doc who advised that we should have a 3rd round of medication. At this time, when we came in for the medication, the doctor THEN advised us that she may need an xray. The puppy has been fighting this upper respiratory problem for over a month and they now tell us she needs xrays. I have decided to grab my file from this place and take her to another. Sadly, the other doctor states she may have pneumonia at this point. I will be seeking legal action against this vet. Please protect your animals and go elsewhere.

My Rabbit

It took me a minute to find a Vet for my daughters rabbit. There aren't many places that provide service for rabbits. Whan I called VCA with concerns, they saw Bunnz the same day.

Don't Do It

I have been using this vet since I brought my dog home over 7 years ago. I was never super imressed but then again I only ever needed them for regular check ups, shots, etc... However, when I actually had a problem they fell short--big time. I took my german shepard in for a flea check in March 2009, she had been scratching herself silly. At that time they ""checked"" and said there were no fleas. They said she was probably scrathing due to recent change in food and gave me steroids for her ($90+). She continued to scratch but we went on with the assumption that she did not have fleas. We were then attacked by what seemed like millions of fleas at the end of June 2009, so we took her back to the vet--and she was treated for fleas ($107+). By that point our entire house was jumping with fleas. We tried to treat the infestation ourselves but we had no idea how bad it was. We sprayed, used boric acid, and continued the fight unsuccessfully for 3 weeks. We eventually had to hire an exterminator ($145) at which point my ankles looked like raw hamburger meat. I know we had fleas when we first took her in March. So thanks to these vets we have spent aproximately $400 for a problem that should have been solved in March. Take my advice if you need a flea check go to a different vet.

people that dont care

I will not take any of my pets to this hospital ever again. They are not compassionate at all, they only want your money. I had to put my cat down of 18yrs, and was told that I could bring him in right away only if I did not want to stay with him. Of course I wanted to be with him, so they told me I had to wait for a cancellation appt. there was no avail appts at the time. My cat was suffering- I was not a stranger to them. I had just had him in their office 2 wks prior. So I called another vet that had never met me and told them my situation- they said to bring my cat down asap and they will put him down for me and I can stay with him. Unfortunatey, he had passed in my arms on the way to the other place. Knightswood called me 3 days later to tell me that they got a cancellation!

Just a Joke!

On several occasions I called to make an appointment because one of my animals was sick; which I clearly specified. The joke is the answer I received on each occasion. I called on a Tuesday the last time and my response was "ok, how about a week from Friday" This is indicative of the response I received on each occasion. One of my pets would have been dead if I had waited for them!!!!!!!!!!!!! P00R P00R RATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Thank goodness that is not the only place around. A place that will give your pet immediate service is Neshaminy VCA.
