Pet Care Veterinarian Clinic, 5201 Va. Beach Blvd., Va. Beach, VA 23462
Dr. Pete Fisher is a Tidewater Va. Veterinarian who just cannot be surpassed by any other. He, his clinic & staff have the most cutting-edge latest in animal health care technology , can work with you to help you & your animal companion receive the best care possible anywhere, & are all so gentle, sympathetic & kind in handling your baby as well as helping you to understand your options. Their special warmth & caring have gotten me through some potentially devastating events involving my own deeply beloved long~time babies & the emotional wounds suffered in their eventual passings.
I see 3 or 4 scathing reviews by past patient parents who've had either very painful losses or very negative experiences at Pet Care. I'm sorry for these folks as well as their priceless loved pets. But if these are the only truly unfavorable incidents out of hundreds & hundreds of other clients over the years, I'd say that the percentage of happy pet parents who continue to return to Pet Care is far greater than the unfortunate few who don't.
To expect a 100% positive history score would be unfairly unrealistic. When dealing with so many different personalities among the entire staff of one business, on occasion a Crack in the structure will betimes be located.
But in my own experiences with Pet Care were always positive & even suprising in the tenderness & thoughtfulness which we were given there.
My aging little mentally & physically retarded little totally innocent 12 year old tortoiseshell kitty Trezzie, became very sick & couldn't eat anymore. Dr. Pete diagnosed intestinal cancer, performed the surgery to remove it, which she bounced back from with little pain or difficulty, thank God. But the biopsy came back showing her cancer was highly aggressive & would be terminal, inoperable & that she would suffer terribly til it finally would take her.
Seeing my obvious pain & grief led many of the nurses to tears too, as they stood by, watching me sadly.
Not wanting my precious deeply beloved little Trezzie to suffer such a horrible struggle, I opted to let Dr. Pete to end her eventual fight to live while I cradled her. But I just couldn't bear to end her gentle life in a strange place on a cold metal table.
So Dr. Pete brought one of his nurses with him TO OUR HOME, & euthanized her gently in our grassy backyard that she loved while I comforted her & whispered my love & goodbyes to her as her life slipped peacefully away.
What vet do you know who would go so far to spare you & your baby such added unnecessary pain?
They are sharp, thorough & unusually caring, understanding & wonderfully compassionate people at Pet Care Veterinary .
This is by far one of the worst places to take your pet. We recently took our two dogs to see this place after a friend highly recommended them. First, we scheduled an appointment for Saturday morning so both my husband and I could go together to help control the two dogs (they get excited around other animals). Our appointment was scheduled for 9:00. It was going on 1:30 before we even were taken to an exam room. There were people coming in with later appointments that were being seen before us. I felt that was poor customer service especially since this was our first visit. The doctor that saw our dogs was great. The one can be shy around strangers, but she quickly warmed up to the doctor and his assistants. We did end up paying quite a large fee for "just a check-up". One our first visit the doctor found an issue that we needed to treat the dog for right away, and we needed a follow up appointment for 6 months later. When the time came for the follow-up I reluctantly took them back. This time we had a totally different doctor who was rather rough with our male dog. It took them 3 days to call me back after she said she'd call me the next business day (we came in on a Saturday). It wasn't until Wednesday that she finally called me. I will not be returning to this place! I prefer a more client oriented vet.
I've been using this vets service for many years and much to my suprise they were doing the same to me.I thought there was supposed to be a trust and caring issue between the patient and doctor and come to find out ,(with the exception of one vet)the only issue was they cared about doing a credit check on payment and trusted I would pay the other half soon.I've never left a balance and believe me there have been some huge balances. There is no excuse for this greedy behavior and if I were a pet parent I would DO MY HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU GO THERE.
If youe looking for a low cost vet this is not the place to go.
My cats have been going here for 10 years. my wife was the one paying the fee. She did not know she was paying almost 2x the amount of any other vet,
We paid -ver 200 for my cat to be treated for summeretime scratching and chewing. This treatment worked for 2 weeks and now he is back to chewing and scratching again.
2 thumbs down
I have been taking my animals to Pet Care Veterinary Hospital for almost a year now. My dog loves going to the vet the staff is always warm and loving to him and he just soaks up the attention. My cat hates vets her old vet would have to sedate her to do anything to her and her new vet can hold her and everything because he took the time for her to get to know him now we have n o problem. I think they are a little pricy but i will pay extra for my pet to have the best care.
