Our kitty had sudden severe back pains and we searched for vet on a weekend morning. Pearl Animal was not the closest but the only one who could fit us in right away. When we arrived, they were super friendly and welcoming. A veterinarian

My kitty can be...quite behaviorally difficult at times, especially when it involves a trip to the vet. I have taken her to numerous different animal hospitals and only one has been able to work with and treat her. That animal hospital is Pearl Animal Hospital!

I really don't know what I would do to provide my cat with the sub-q fluids, medicine, blood draws, and more that she needs to survive without the skilled technicians at this hospital! Matt is the cat guru. He works collaboratively with my cat and adjusts his method whenever she becomes extra difficult or less so. His flexibility, warm, genuine and comforting attitude, and collaborative technique works magic with my cat. Sarah and Emily are just as amazing as well!! Despite my kitty's severe aggressiveness, everyone who works at Pearl Animal Hospital never fail to spread the positive and loving energy to me and my kitty.

Bottom line: they achieve the most effective results while ensuring the least amount of stress on my cat. I love Pearl Animal Hospital! :)

Oh yes, and Dr. Anders, Dr. Lord, and Dr. Williams are the best veterinarians!! They do a great job of communicating my cat's condition in a way that I can understand, combined with empathy and sincere affection.

Enjoyed my experience at Pearl Animal Hospital! Dr. Anders and the staff were friendly and I felt they cared about me just as much as my dog. During the vaccination Matt was helpful to explain what different shot are for. It was nice to be in a clinic that was clean without smelling like a bleach bottle. It's fun too that the lobby has modern art of animals, goes nicely with being in the artsy Pearl District. I'll be going back!

My experience with the Pearl Animal Hospital has been one of a friendly, competent and professional staff. I've noticed that all clients get individual attention and care. The facility is inviting, always clean and fresh, and up to date. Professionals and staff participate in neighborhood events and donate their time to "free clinics". It is a small, personal veternarian hospital with top notch service. "

Pearl Animal Hospital is an amazing veterinary experiance! I have been taking my 7 year old Lab mix Cooper to see Dr. Anders since the day it opened. The atmosphere is great, the staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable, and Dr. Anders practices amazing preventative medicine. Cooper even loves coming to the vet! Thank you Dr. Anders and the staff of Pearl Animal Hospital for all of your wonderful care of my puppy!

I only see five stars possible, but I'd give million stars to Pearl Animal Hospital if I could. I am certain that we will never go anywhere else as long as we live in Portland (or within 100 miles of Portland).The Dr.'s and staff are absolutely wonderful and truly care for our dog. They give him lots of personalized attention (and treats!), while sneaking in some thorough veterinary care.

I just happened on a write-up of Dr. Anders in "Explore the Pearl" so I took my border collie there when he was sick. It turned out to be an infection. As soon as we came in, they put him at ease immediately - the gentle handling and comfy exam room kept him comfortable and relaxed. And they fixed him right up with some good medicine for a very reasonable price.

After our first good experience, we decided to get a dental cleaning, which we'd been delaying for a while. Before the procedure Dr. Ander's gave us a detailed treatment plan (basically a price estimate) for me to sign off on. I knew the price having considered the procedure with other vet clinics, and they seemed very reasonable again. They needed to extract 2 decayed teeth, and they noticed some lesions during the procedure, and called to make sure we were OK with fixing up these teeth as well. After some questions and a thorough explanation, we told them to proceed. The final bill was well under the worst-case estimate and was definitely a very good value given the quality of care and time they spent on the procedure (yes I had them give me updates throughout the whole thing). Afterward, they showed us the before-and-after pictures, and it's no wonder the difference I see in our dog. If I had teeth like that, I'd be a bit less active, too. So thanks Pearl Animal Hospital for giving us our happy hyperactive puppy back again!

We greatly appreciated the wonderful care our dog Paco got from Pearl Animal Hospital -- we've dealt with many vets and this place has (by far) the most considerate and caring staff you can find! They went the extra mile with explaining what was going on and communicating on a regular basis to see how our old dog was doing and if there were any concerns we had about his health. They were also very considerate about relaying what was vital for our dog's health and what kinds of services were optional -- we never felt pressured into purchasing services we weren't comfortable with. Even when we had to make the difficult decision to put our dog to sleep, we were comforted and put at ease by the professional and considerate interactions with Dr. Anders and her staff. I was so pleased and impressed with the respect, compassion and grace that I encountered during a very difficult time for our family. I know that any other dog we get will be going to this vet. Dr. Anders' and her staff's professional expertise is easily accessible and they TRULY care for your animal's wellbeing. Your pet deserves the care you'll find at Pearl Animal Hospital.

We recently took our two dogs in for their annual exam, and I just have to say that I feel very lucky to have such a great veterinary clinic in Portland. We followed Dr. Anders from her previous clinic, and she is well worth the drive across town (and our vet bills have even gone down). Dr. Anders has been been caring for our dogs since they were puppies, and the wonderful staff at Pearl Animal Hospital treats our dogs with such great care. The personalized service really makes us feel like family, and we completely trust our dogs' health and well-being to this great clinic and we know that they have played a very important part in keeping our dogs happy and healthy.

Terrible vet, do NOT recommend! Okay, they have a nice office. But not worth the prices and, most importantly, the quality of care. I took my cat there for a simple teeth cleaning. It was ridiculously expensive (twice as much as other vets) and when my cat came back she was limping horribly on the leg which the IV was in. I expected the limp to go away after a few weeks, or even a couple months, but it did not. I took her back to the vet and told them that ever since the procedure her leg has been ruined. The vet was not at all apologetic and did not take responsibility. She suggested I pay for a bunch of expensive tests. The vet and staff's demeanor isn't very friendly, in fact they seem to guilt you into spending more money and taking your pet in to see them more often.
Today I was at a local pet store, buying my cat glucosamine. It's over a year since her teeth cleaning procedure and her limp has never improved much. I told the pet shop owner what had happened and she said "Oh yeah, I've heard terrible things about Pearl Vet! They are really over priced and I've heard quite a few complaints about the quality of care there!" When this pet store first opened, they used to give out cards for Pearl Vet, but after hearing a lot of horror stories, they've pulled their cards and no longer recommend them.
I'm sure Pearl Vet is fine for routine vaccinations, especially if you're rich. But I wouldn't trust them with any major procedure. It makes me sad to see my cat limping around and holding her paw up.

We recently flew to Thailand with our dog. The process for getting her pet visa was a little grueling. Our normal vet could not get one of the vaccines that was necessary. Courtney and her staff knew what was needed and got it right away. They even took the time to look up information to ensure we would have a smooth journey through customs with our dog. We are so pleased on how professional they are. They are a great team!!!!

Pros: Can get done what other Vets can not

Cons: None

I followed Dr. Anders from her previous clinic and was overall pretty happy with our experiences at the Pearl. The important word here is "WAS." The vet is knowledgeable and current on topics from pharmaceuticals to oral care. I was not thrilled that they are sponsored by Royal Canin and therefore advocate using their food exclusively. Have you read the ingredient labels? More chemicals than actual food. They are also extremely pricey for basic services and will add on products without disclosing if it is vital for the pet's health. Straight information without a guilt-inducing pitch would be nice. Also, the staff (excluding the doctor and the front desk) are condescending and talk with money signs in their eyes.

I have been to the clinic for several visits, but this will be my last time. When I am there, I can ask how much their many add-ons will cost and try to weigh that against what I have read (because they will never be forthright). But when I dropped my dog off for dental cleaning, their add-ons were so much so that it doubled my already expensive estimate. Talk about bait and switch. Plus, these are services that other vets offer free of charge.

Don't be fooled by the veneer. You're paying for infostructure, not for quality care.

Pros: vet is great with dogs and people, clean environment

Cons: parking, can't discern vital recommendations from upselling

Pearl Animal Hospital is, for lack of a better word, amazing. The second you step inside the clinic smells wonderful, weird for a vet clinic, right?! And the staff immediately greets you with a warm smile. The atmosphere could be a vet clinic or a local, chic Pearl bar. It's very clean and chicly but minimally decorated and has awesome artwork on the walls. As for your pet children, all of the staff immediately gravitates toward them. My dog, a daschund, is usually skiddish around strangers but she was immediately attracted to Dr. Anders and has always enjoyed seeing her...that's right, actually enjoyed seeing her doctor who pokes and prods her. Dr. Anders is 100% concerned with the welfare of your pet, not what goes in her pocket, and that is hard to find. Her willingness to put your pet first is evident with every decision she makes. The staff always remembers us both every time we come in and even remembers details about our lives. I can't say enough great things about this clinic and highly recommend you bring your loved little one here. Always convenient, available parking or walk if you live in Northwest or the Pearl. Just go see the folks at Pearl Animal Hospital!
