I, over the years, have taken many of my dogs to the services of Joey Collins and staff. I have HAD to have a couple of my dogs euthanized, and the compassion of these caring people touched my heart like no other. When you see tears in their eyes and have sympathy cards sent, these aren't actions of non-caring individuals.
I'm sure that mistakes can be made and death can happen but it isn't always what's seen that causes the death.
My male Basset Hound had to be euthanized because at nine years old, he had congestive heart failure and we thought it was a stomach virus ... Unfortunately he had an enlarged heart all of his life and we didn't know it. The X-rays showed everything. I don't always ask for X-rays when my dogs get sick, but it is something from now on I will do. It only makes sense, if I have X-rays for my own physical,why not for them. They can't tell us when they feel bad and it will help me to know more about my fur babies BEFORE something happens that I might think is nothing really to worry about.
I highly recommend their services ... Very caring of their patients!
Years ago my Shih Tzu puppy had parvo. We rushed him to see these vets. They kept him there for two nights and saved his life. A few years after that my little dog Nacho (he is my baby) had a big tumor under his right leg. We took him to see Joey. They kept him over night removed the tumor and only charged me one hundred dollars. My sister-inlaw lives in South Carolina. She wanted to get her Dobermans ears done. After we told her how great they are at East Kentucky Animal Clinic, she brought her dog to them and was so pleased. She said if they lived close they wouldn't go anywhere else. My Nacho has what I think is a tumor on one of his toes. I am taking him to see Joey in the morning. I am certain he will be in the best hands. If I wasn't I would not take him there. He is almost thirteen years old now. And like I said he is my baby. My smallest and best friend
Years ago I had my beautiful baby boy dog Brayden. One very cold spring morning I woke up and his back legs were very weak. He had much trouble walking on his back legs. He was an inside pet and NEVER went outside w/o being on a lead. I was sick with a bad cold and called someone to take him to Joey Collin's office for me. I fed him his lunch and he also ate his favorite treats and played with his toys and practiced, 'howling' with us, before the person arrived to take him to the vet. He was left at Collins' office for evaluation. Around one hour and forty minutes later I got a phone call from the office and they told me that my Brayden had DIED!!! (????) This is a dog who had just eaten his lunch, ate treats, was playing with his toys and howling less than two hours before his trip to that office! I asked what was his cause of death, they informed me they gave him a shot of some kind and he died right after they gave him this shot! I have NEVER took ANY of my pets back to that office. I currently have a momma dog and her nine two week old babies that will be getting dewormed and getting their shots. I also have my sweet Annabelle. NONE of my pets will not EVER be taken to that "clinic" again. I blame myself for taking Brayden to that place. I honestly feel if I had taken him to another clinic, he may still be alive today. It is in my opinion that Joey Collins and his staff were neglectful and thus caused Brayden's untimely death. I will never forgot. Rest in peace my sweet Brayden.
Beware of these so called vets, I took my dog that was only 5 years old to them on 8/30/14, they charged me $131.00 then when I brought her home she died. I loved my baby girl and would have done anything for her I should have taken her to another vet. Think twice before going to this vet they may kill you animal next
It is a HORRIBLE place run by MORE HORRIBLE people with ONE decent person of the whole lot of them. AVOID THEM. Pretty sure he called the police on me when I would not let him put my dog to sleep because I wanted to take him home. Dr. Kevorkian. BUT worse than that: HE did NOT GIVE A CARE FOR THE ANIMAL AT ALL.
Worst place to go to, they killed my dog from a neutering! They had 24 other clients. Don't you think thats a little too much? I just wrote a giant review but then I had to sign up and refresh the page so I'm not typing it again. To sum it up, they handled it very poorly (Thats going easy on them). I would rate 0 stars but it won't allow it. Be careful, they may rush a simple procedure and end up killing your dog and they won't show any remorse (they didn't give two dices about us).
This is a great place with great personal and great prices a little farther to drive for our area but well worth it when u think about the price and personal but the web sight could use a better "contact us" part all i found was the address and phone number an email address would have been great!!!
