We have been bring our pets to Halsey

We have been bring our pets to Halsey East Animal Clinic since 1979. The best services available. Highly caring & compassionate. We just took our dog in & found she has terminal cancer. We thought she would have only a couple of days. Dr Vockert gave her a treatment of some things to stimulate her apatite, re-hydrate her & generally make her feel better. We know this is just temporary but it has given us a week & she is better now than she had been in several weeks. We do know the time until we have to put her down is near & she will stop eating soon but a few days with a great dog is a good thing. Thank you Dr. Vockert!!

Amazing place to bring your animals!

Amazing place to bring your animals, of any age. My neighbors have brought their animals there for 30+ years, and last year.. We started taking my dog. We had taken him to 5 other vets to find out what was going on and why he was loosing his fur. Everyone we took him to, said it was fleas w/o even touching my dog. But Dr. Vockert actually touched my dog, ran tests, etc. We ended up with three kinds of medication to give my dog, could only afford two of the three... So Dr Vockert thankfully gave us donated medicine and charged us $1 for a month supply. Amazing! I've started taking my cat there too! She was just spayed, and not the easiest of cats to handle.. But even though she hissed at the staff when they walked by, they still treated her with the utmost respect.

Best Cliinic In Town!

I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Vockert (the clinic owner) for years. He is the nicest, most caring, skilled and professional veterinarian I have ever been to...except for his father who my parents used to bring their pets to before Dr. Steve took over. Two generations of awesome vets! He and his staff have twice saved my pets, and brought them back from what looked like certain death. I would never dream of going to another vet hospital.

Great staff, owner not so much

I had taken all my pets to Halsey east for years, and many pets had done well under the care of the old doctor Vocker. Then I brought in my nearly blind kitten, (new to the house) and the new owner Stephen Vocker convinced me to have a very expensive surgery done on the cat. Later one of the other vets let me know this surgery very little hope in helping my cat but the owner had read about this procedure and really wanted to try it. Since then he has suggested other very expensive and experimental surgerys. I am now after 20 years shopping for a new vet. His staff is wonderful, the prices are moderate, the groomer is the best, but DO NOT LET THE OWNER work on your animal.
