I have been taking my dogs to Mt. Lookout Animal Hospital for 14 years. I have worked with Paul, Bev and Carrie. These vets are the real deal. I have had my dogs (3) that have had very serious diseases,cancer and a very rare blood disease. Dr. Paul and Dr. Bev both referred me to vets who specialized in both of my dogs problems. After they were we treated ,surgery and transfusions, Paul, Bev and Carrie were always there for me.Unfortunately I lost one of my girls to cancer because it was too advanced. My other two dogs are still alive today because of the quick diagnosis and excellent treatment. Yes they are expensive ,but they also use the top of the line equipment and continue to upgrade their practice regularly. I have trusted them with my family of pets and will always in the future

As owner of The Animal Hospital On Mt. Lookout Sq., I find it imperative that I comment on Mary J's "review" below. This individual has been pasting this same review on various websites and then removing it when I respond. Firstly, the author of this post did not accompany his aunt, the cat's owner, and therefore was not privy to the conversation. Although she was not an established client of our hospital, we told her we would gladly accomodate her however it would be at least 30 minutes before the veterinarians were to arrive for the scheduled morning appointments. We advised if she wanted to be seen sooner, it might behoove her to go to the emergency clinic approximately 10 minutes from our hospital. She elected to stay and wait for the Drs. to arrive.

When the veterinarian arrived it was determined that the cat was not in an emergency situation like the owner thought and it would be OK to see the scheduled appointment first. However, to expidite the process, the owner was asked if bloodwork could be started so the veterinarian that would be examining her cat could have the results when she entered the room for the exam. The owner said to do what ever was needed.

During the initial exam, the veterinarian noted her cat had severe dental disease and a significant heart murmur. Her assessment was that much of her cat's problems were due to her dental issues and that a good dental cleaning with probable extractions under general anesthesia was indicated.

The bloodwork indicated chronic kidney disease, a common problem in older cats. These findings were discussed with her in detail, bringing to her attention that the dental disease could be partly to blame for the kidney issue.

A detailed estimate for the dental procedure was given to her. An injectable antibiotic that would help control the dental infection until the procedure could be performed was also given to the cat. It would last for 14 days so she would not be burdened with having to medicate her cat on a daily basis. She scheduled the appointment for the dental procedure before she left, but then called later to cancel it.

The owner decided to return to her regular vet and for some reason, he repeated the same bloodwork and charged her for diagnostics that were already performed at our hospital. He could have just called our office and we would have faxed the results to him, so there would be no need for her to pay twice for the same bloodwork. In addition, our opinion did not align with his. We requested that we talk to him so we could work together to determine the best treatment plan for her pet. To date, this dialogue has not occured and unfortunately we feel that after the antibotic that we gave runs its course, the initial presenting problem will recur.

Our veterinarian followed proper standard of care for this case. She practiced thorough, good quality medicine, something our hospital prides itself in daily. The bottom line is that we care deeply for all of our patients and only wanted to do what was medically sound for her cat.

I've been taking my dog there for the past few years. I'm extremely impressed with all of the vets and staff members. The owners are both veterinarians and they're knowlegable, kind and it has been my experience that they won't do any unnecessary procedures. My nephew took his older dog there after he was having trouble with his dog and after seeing another vet - and now, like me, he won't go anywhere else.

PLEASE TAKE YOUR PET FOR A 2ND OPINION! My 85yr. old Aunt took her 16yr old cat into this hospital when he seemed to be in distress. Her regular vet was unavailable at the time. Two hours and $330 later, she was told that he had to have three teeth extracted, had a moderate heart murmur and only had 35% kidney function. The estimate for extracting the teeth was anywhere from $550-$1000! We took the cat to his regular vet two days later and found that there was nothing wrong with his teeth but some tarter (and indeed his gums looked great for his age!). He did have a very small heart murmur and his kidneys have only lost a minute amount of function. All in all the vet said he was in wonderful shape for his age and if he didn't know better, he would have estimated his age to be around 9 or 10.
The charge for the time and the bloodwork at the vet totalled only $150.
This hospital not only bilked an elderly woman out of money she really can't afford but they were also prepared to do totally unnecessary surgery on a 16yr. old cat. Stay away from this hospital if you can!

This is a very professional clinic- You feel like you are at your doctor's office. Very clean and on time. Our main reason for switching vets is that they are very costly. Do not expect to go out the door under a 100 for a general visit. We were impressed with all the vets - they have 5 and we had 3 different ones.

PROS: Very Professional, Good Care
CONS: Very Expensive
