Sorry but this place is all about Billing! They care more about billing then if the animal really benefits from their services! These vets (Dr Parks)is more of a detailed billing artist then a doctor! Betting she has more experience in trumping up outrageous charges then she does caring for animals.These people prey on the weak and injured and are truly very sad people!They tried to jerry rig my animals problem till I could get into see a REAL vet Monday morning.My animal went out the front door same as it came in only with a 400 bill for 30mins work..If anything he was in more pain then he showed up with.
People you better hope and prey your animal has issues during the week because its sad when the receptions lunch delivery and getting her hubby to make errands is more important then getting patients into be seen!

I advise you to hold off till Monday and just see regular vet or drive to a ER other then this one!

Just so no confusion they Are CP Vets 1522 martin st. state college, PA 814-237-4670.....

I can't rate this clinic any higher or I would!!! I was nervous to go there at first, thinking I didn't know anything about it, had not set up a relationship with the vets, and, yes...I was very worried about the financial implications for a already strapped family. I worried needlessly. We had recently had our 6 month old kitten spayed (by a different, mostly non-emergency care vet's clinic). Within 72 hrs post-surgery, our kitten had developed a tissue reaction to the sutures, began to lick and pull at her incision (DON'T LET YOUR CAT/KITTEN DO THIS!! hindsight is 20/20. I should've trusted my instincts) and our kitten very quickly ripped out a suture, which opened her small incision up wide & within a matter of hours she developed a very nasty infection and severe pain. The vet at CP vets that Friday night (8 p.m'ish), Dr. Feretti, was amazing. Knowledgable, very professional and wonderfully understanding. My 10 year old daughter was with me and the whole staff was comforting to her during a very scary, emotional time. Within two hours, start to finish, our kitten had been gently sedated (using the LEAST amount of gas to get her comfortable), professionally stitched, carefully monitored, and discharged with FULL, completely written up instructions. And the DR. and techs asked several times if we had any questions and assured us we could call or come back if ANY problems or issues came up. Dr. Feretti also answered our questions in a very professional yet kind and understanding manner, and educated us on types of sutures (our kitten's sutures were of a "porous" material, which allowed the infection to literally "wick" itself throughout the incision). She not only cleaned up the incision, but it was meticulously and gently stitched with two extra sutures for added wound protection as well, using a monofiliment (non-porous) material so the infection would stay as localized as possible. We were discharged with confidence that they were available to us for any problems or questions (in addition to wonderfully clear instructions). I can honestly say that in nearly forty years of pet ownership, I have not had a better emergency-care type encounter. ** I would VERY HIGHLY recommend CPVets to anyone who's asking themselves "do we take our pet, or should we wait?" My bill was reasonable given the intensive and high quality care (antibiotics were even mixed up for me, with markings made on the syringes so I could not make a mistake in dosing), a "collar" to prevent our little kitty from recreating the trauma to herself, and I was offered payment methods up front. Thank you CP Vets and Dr. Feretti and staff, for making a very scary and heart-wrenching time MUCH easier to deal with. And I have been educated on wound care for the future. THANKS SO MUCH~~~ Our feisty little kitten is doing EXCELLENT!

Thank goodness for CP Vets. There are truly the ONLY emergency vet clinic in the area. My dog broke his leg over the weekend. I called 4 vets including an animal hospital which advertises ER care and was told that they were full for the day! CP vets was extremely friendly and took excellent care of my dog! The rates were reasonable (for an emergency vet), but you really can't put a price having my dog back in one piece!Thank you CP Vets.
