I'm not sure why anyone would rate Priv. Critters with less than 5 stars. I've been taking my dogs there for a couple of years now and have had wonderful, attentive, caring help every time. They listen to me and my concerns, they allow me to ask questions, and they give sound advice. The office staff, the owner and the doctors have all shown above reproach professionalism in every situation. I used to go to a bigger, fancier clinic in Lakeland, but would hesitate sometimes to go in because I knew the cost would be outrageous. I no longer even question whether to go or not. They know me by name and help me save money and the care my pets get is second to none. Thanks Privileged Critters for the best care anywhere! Shari Trowbridge

The "review" about how bad the clinic is, was obviously written by a disgruntled employee. Of course, when this business was taken over by the present owner and opened in July 08, it came with a negative reputation, poor bookkeeping, old equipment and a different Veterinarian. Fact is, almost all equipment has been replaced, the clinic now has new computers, state-of-the art new, Blood Chemistry machines, new infusion pumps, heart monitors, new Autoclave sterilizer and more, yet the prices have been kept reasonable and are unbeatable. The doctors who work at Privileged Critters are EXCELLENT and can be put up against anyone in Lakeland for knowledge and competency. The staff has all been replaced with friendly, efficient, capable, dependable workers. I hope you give us a chance to prove how wonderful and caring this staff is, and how great our service will be to you. Brenda Cross (owner) (863) 521-1360

I have visited many different vets over the past 20 years and have never met a more compassionate, caring and skilled group of veterinarians than at Privileged Critters Animal Hospital. I had my puppy neutered there last year while spending the summer with family in Lakeland. Privileged Critters is the type of vet that I wish I could find in my own town (Orlando). They truly seem to care about each pet as well as the pet owners. Brenda Cross went out of her way to accommodate my schedule and reassure me about the procedure. My puppy healed very quickly and was eager to play soon after surgery. I highly recommend this vet!!!

Response from this business:
We also pick up animals, especially for our Senior citizens. Call if you need help and we will try to accomodate your needs! Most of the time, there is no charge for this service!

Yeah ..ok your dog might sit in the owners truck for an hour or so before its remembered or they might call you for a missed appointment forgeting they have your pet already because its locked in their truck without air. I personally witnessed this I wouldnt reccomend this service from this clinic but the doctor is great ! I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS WITH HIS EXPERTISE .

We just wanted you to know how very pleased we are with your animal hospital!! You just don't know how much we appreciate the care, courtesy and the very reasonable cost! You are providing such a very needed service. As we told you, we have many, many cats and it has been very expensive to get them all fixed, get their shots and keep them fed.

We had 3 of our kitties neutered and got their shots on Dec. 22nd. They were all awake and alert all the way home, but did not appear to be in pain and they have just gotten along great! They act like nothing ever happened to them. We are so grateful! The service was excellent, the pet care was excellent and the cost was excellent. We are recommending you to everyone we know who has pets.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I Have a few cats of all age;s, I take them all to Privleged Critters. and have had only good care from them, I had a little kitten that was very sick and i couldn;t get to them so Brenda sent her husband to to my house to pick it up,.They have droped off flea spray to me when i couldn;t get there, My cats are my babies and they know this, I would not take my cats there if i thought any of the bad reviews on here were true, I don;t see where the prices are bad if you can afford a pet then you can afford the care that go;s with it, I give brenda and her staff 2 thumbs up, keep doing a great job,

I have been going to Priviledged Critters for 3 years. I had 6 elderly cats. I have lost 4 of them. They always let me come right in when I had a problem and were very compassionate and caring. I have never seen a vet's office that everyone, especially Brenda cared so much. They charge about half of what the other vets charge and are not money hungry at all! I read those 3 bad reveiws and could not believe my eyes. It had to come from a disgrunteled ex-employee because there is not a word of truth in them. I have gotton 3 more cats and will not take them anywhere else. These people are the best. Nancy.Y

Though I haven't been to this facility yet (appointment today at 3:45) Privileged Critters comes highly recommended. I recently adopted a Lab/Newfoundland mix puppy, who has a problem with her right elbow. I have the appointment, and will write later about our experience.

PLEASE notice: the number listed at the top of this page is incorrect. I called it this morning, instead of the number listed on a prescription envelop that came with meds for the pup.
Their NEW office number is:

863-521-1360

I like that they can be flexible on drop off and pick up hours. I work in Tampa and you never know what traffic surprises you might encounter! Nice people there too.

Do you remember the days when the receptionist addressed you by name? The days when the vet and staff would talk to, listen to and even PET your animal instead of looking at him like a dollar sign? There are still places like that out there.

Privileged Critters is just like that. The staff is friendly, kind, personable and knowledgable. The vet respects you as a concerned owner and won't demand that you buy $2/lb food or $500 worth of medicines.

I am a pet owner and also an animal rescuer. I know how hard it is to find an affordable vet that cares. It's refreshing to see an office come along that cares more about animals than dollars.

I take all of my rescue animals to them and each of my own pets will go there when they become due for shots. I hope they stay in Lakeland forever!

Critters Animal Hospital has a great group of people working for you. Even though they are new, their staff are knowledgeable and willing to go the extra miles to make you the pet owner along with your pet happy, happy, happy. It's great to see a bilingual (English/Spanish) speaking vet also! It's a great small-town feeling place!
