I have read the online reviews about Dr. Moorhead Dvm, of the Sandy Springs Veterinary Clinic, both positive and negative, and I thought I would write my own review. My wife and I have had an animal rescue for 18 years, and we have visited many different vet offices over the years. We've met the best and worse of them.

Recently, one of our rescued dogs, a little Jack Russell terrier, was attacked by a coyote, and his left rear foot was literally ripped to shreds, leaving him with only half a foot. It was a very severe wound.

I contacted several vets in the Upstate and each one suggested amputation. The lowest price quote we received was $900, plus the office visit fee, and any boarding and meds that may be needed. When I told them our rescue didn't have those kinds of funds available, they immediately said we should put him to sleep. They didn??t care about the little dog or the humans who loved him. It was all about the money, nothing else. Sadly, most vets are like most human doctors. Their businesses are purely money driven.

I??m not opposed to vets or human doctors making a profit, but I think they should have a heart also, and take into consideration each individual case when pricing their services.

When everything seemed hopeless I found Dr. Moorhead's office. I called him and explained the situation. He told me to bring the injured dog to him, and he would do his best to keep treatment within our budget.

When we arrived Dr.Moorhead said he wanted to try to save the foot and leg if at all possible, and certainly didn't want to euthanize the dog. He performed an examination and immediately took the dog into surgery. He kept the little guy at his office for a couple of days of observation. We then took him home, and every couple of days we take him back to have his bandages changed. One week later, the dog is not only still alive, but is healing very well. He has half of a foot, and all of his leg. He's even using the injured foot. He will make a full recovery, and will be back to his old rowdy self very soon.

Dr. Moorhead kept his promise and stayed within our budget, and he chose the course of action that was best for the dog. All the other vets wanted to amputate or euthanize. Their decisions were based on money, instead of what was best for the dog. Dr. Moorhead put the dog first. and that is the mark of a great vet.

I have read a couple of reviews online claiming that Dr. Moorhead killed their dogs after what what supposed to be routine procedures. I can tell you from experience that dogs are like people in that they respond to anesthesia and medications in different ways. Some do well, others do not. The vet has no way of knowing how each animal will respond.

Even commonly used antibiotics such as Cefelexin can cause serious side effects and even death in some animals. This has only been very recently learned and most vets are still unaware of the dangers of using Cefelexin. You must do your own research.

No one can love and care for their animals more than we do, and we have lost a few animals to unexpected death. It's one of those things that just happens. It wasn't our fault, and it wasn't the vet's fault. It was just how the animals responded to the treatments.

My heart goes out to the people who have lost their pets to unexpected death after what what was supposed to be a routine procedure, or minor surgery. I know how painful and shocking that can be. But don??t blame Dr. Moorhead for something that he had no control over. I??ve talked to him about this matter, and I have seen the hurt in his eyes. I??m convinced he has a true love for animals, and would have never done anything that he thought would have harmed your pets. With what I have seen, and I have been watching him closely, I know I can trust him completely with our animals.

I highly recommend Dr. Moorhead and the Sandy Springs Veterinary Clinic. Their office may not be located in the most beautiful, ultra modern building, and Dr. Moorhead may not be a chatty, hot shot vet who will try to impress you. He's more concerned with helping your pet than impressing you with meaningless conversation. I've worked with many vets over the years, and Dr. Moorhead is one of the best I have found anywhere.

I??m grateful to Dr. Moorhead for his work with our Jack Russell. He did what no other vet in our area was willing to do. He proved to me that he has a heart and a real concern for animals. He has won my respect, and will now be the official vet for our animal rescue. I know all of our furry babies will be in good hands with Dr. Moorhead, and yours will be too.

Thank you, Dr. Moorhead.

I took my twelve year old lab to Dr. Moorhead approximately a year ago for the removal of two tumors. Since that time he has turned another year older and is doing great I am fully convinced quite frankly.that had it not been for Dr. Moorhead he would not be alive today.

Dr. Moorehead killed my dog during what I would consider a routine operation. I cannot believe such a procedure would kill a healthy pet that we spent money, time and training and come to love him as a family member only to have him not make it through a routine surgery. There was no complications according to the Dr. and nothing abnormal during the procedure. I am very disappointed and will be contacting the board about this.

The Veterinary Clinic of Clemson offers ok service for your pets. I prefer to go to the Tiger Town Animal Hospital because their veterinarian is a Clemson graduate, but the Vet Clinic will probably offer just as good of service. They are a little further away (located in Pendleton) and the vet is much older with more experience. If you are looking to support Clemson I would visit TTAH, with the Clemson graduate vet!
