I've been taking my 3 beagles and 1 cat to Bostic Veterinary Hospital for years now. The doctors and staff have always been top notch. Yes, going to the vet is expensive, I never get out for under a hundred dollars, but owning pets is an expensive endeavor - it's something that comes with the commitment. What I love about the Bostic staff is that they give me options - different types of treatment for different prices. They understand that these services are expensive, so they will always tell me the cost of a shot or medicine before I make a decision. The doctors are knowledgeable, Dr. Manning is terrific, and you know he loves animals. The staff are always, ALWAYS friendly, and they have a service where if you bring a new rescue, the initial exam is free! I highly recommend these wonderful people.

Wonderful, kind doctors to our difficult cat patient. We were so impressed with their concern and care. Highly recommend this group.
Cannot say enough good things about this wonderful crew that greets and treats my Golden Retriever Hunter. He is my Furbaby and they treat him as they would their own. My family has gone to Bostic Veterinary Hospital for many years 50 maybe, Dr. Bostic of course has passed on after years of treating my family pets but also our horses and cattle. Fortunately he passed on his superb qualities to Dr.Gail Szabo. I will not go any where else!
I have taken my precious dogs to Bostic Veterinary Hospital since the 1980s. Each time, for each dog, they have been correctly diagnosed and treated with loving, compassionate care. Three dogs had to be let go because of severe mobility problems—thankfully there were 15 to 17 years old—but still heartbreaking. With each one, Dr Gail Szabo was caring, compassionate cared about my grief. I have also seen Dr Manning who has also exhibited the same care and expertise. I never felt pressured to buy anything. The staff has always been competent and professional, from the groomers to reception to vet techs. I want to thank and compliment the whole staff.I was a little taken back by some of the reviews since some seemed to expect gushes of welcome and hugs and kisses.This is a professional group who gives great care to your furry babies. Buck up Bucky. It’s a cold, cruel world out there. Be grateful they are there.
We've taken our dogs to a number of kennels & daycares in the area over the 16 years we've been here, including having sitters stay over. Bayside Kennels has been our facility of choice since 2012. Our old lady dog was having more medical problems, and being affiliated with the veterinary practice next door put our minds at ease. When I was pregnant with our son, I needed a same day induction, and Bayside Kennels took our three dogs that morning; no questions asked and for as long as we needed. Finally, one of our girls is a little neurotic & needs some extra TLC when she's dropped off, which I deeply appreciate. Great facility, wonderful staff!
NOT TRUSTWORTHY. Lied about her services.Long story short - We started a week long trial period, Nicole (the dog walker) showed up the first day, took the money for the week. The second day she said she showed up but we couldn't verify. Wednesday and Thursday she said she showed up but we verified she never showed up. The last day she definitely never showed up and never responded to a text about the visit. She took the money for the whole week though! So to recap, she was paid for a full week of dog walking and maybe walked our dog two out of the five days. And lied about it!
Dr. Szabo has been my family's vet since 2001 when we had our first two Golden Retrievers. She was always there to help direct us through the wellness process, preparing us for the breeding process, OFA certification, the good days and the scary days you experience during the years. Her entire office staff is well trained, very compassionate and knows how to put your pet at ease. Dr. Szabo over the many years has become a friend and was there at the end for both of my Goldens to help make their passing just a bit easier. I now have another young Golden and she has been proactive in his care and necessary referral to a specialist. As a pet owner it is impossible to explain how good it feels to have complete confidence in your vet!In addition Bostic Veterinary was my parents vet since the 60's for my horses, my ducks, cats and dogs. Dr. Bostic before he passed did it all! How is that for a track record?
I have taken my beloved dogs to Bostic Veterinary Hospital for many years and absolutely love everyone there. Dr. Gail Szabo is a truly caring veterinarian. From the moment she enters the room, you can tell how much she loves her patients. She is up on the very latest treatment options and she follows up to make sure your pet is doing well. Every member of the staff is caring and considerate. I highly recommend Bostic Veterinary Hospital.
The absolute worst service I have ever received from a company. The day we signed up for the service, the salesman told us that we would be able to get out of the contract at any given point. We could cancel at anytime, no questions asked. Well we tried to cancel our contract three weeks later and they told us that canceling was not an option. They said you have three days from the time you sign the contract to cancel. They will not budge, nor do they care that their sales techs are out telling customers false information. The salesman clearly used this as a sales ploy to persuade us to sign the contract. This is by far the most unprofessional company I have ever done business with, and I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy.
We took our Cairn to have his teeth cleaned and when we got him back he was limping. The teeth cleaning set us back $400. Today we were told he has a torn or partially torn ACL and that is what is causing the limp. They suggest surgery which will set us back 1500 dollars and today's visit set us back 280 dollars. When reminded he wasn't limping when he arrived for the teeth cleaning we got no response. Our poor little guy is going through massive amounts of trauma as a result of an injury he didn't have before he got his teeth cleaned. What happened to him? We may never know but I'll tell you this much I will NEVER trust these people with any of my pets again! I have only put down poor because you can't give negative stars!
