First of all, the staff is SOOOO SLOOOOWWW. Give yourself an extra hour to wait for the staff to manage their computers and poke around who knows doing what. It isn't like it's ever that busy there. The lobby is clean and it doesn't smell in there, like a LOT of pet boarding places around here. But don't expect your animal to get any care at all when you board them. They put it in a kennel, maybe feed it, and hope to get it back alive. My (housetrained) dog was dehydrated, depressed, and smelled like she had been left to defecate in her kennel after I picked her up after boarding over the weekend. I think this place can give shots but don't expect much more. It is certainly not a "Spa," as they advertise.

Dr. Tiekert saved our beloved dog. She could barely walk into the car at two years of age b/c of Lyme/hip dysplasia and arthritis, and I thought we might have to put her out of her misery. Dr Tiekert immediately DXd her w/hypothyroidism, being overvacinated, and having autoimmune issues. He gave advice on food/supplements and made several antidotes. We saw marked results within 2 wks. Scout now sees Dr. Tiekert once a year (we drive about 45 min/way) & once in a while I email him for advice if her arthritis flares up. My dog is now 9 years old and she is snoring in the other room after a day of doing what she loves most...hunting. I would go to Dr. Tiekert if I could. He is a miracle worker & a wonderful man!!!

Dr. Beavers and Dr. Anderson are great. They answered my questions and the staff called the next day to check up on my pup after her visit. The staff are friendly and I never have to worry about my pets when I'm away. We love taking our four-legged family members here.

I would give this place a -5 if possible. I took my cat and dog here for boarding for two weeks, when I returned from vacation I was horrified at the state of my pets. My cat was completely emaciated when I picked her up. She appeared jaundice and drank water from her bowl as if she hadn't had any for days. Her little teeth were broken from her grinding them together because the Animal Care Center Staff hadn't fed her. My cat died a day later. The blanket I left with my dog smelled like pee. My dog never pees on anything, this leads me to believe they rarely took my dog out forcing him to pee in his pen and on his comfort blanket. Don't let the looks of this place deceive you - they will lock your pet up and never touch them until you return. Do not take your pet here, no animal deserves to be neglected the way they neglected my cat and dog.

Beautiful building! We saw Dr. Beavers and she was wonderful with our cat, Roxie. My husband and I felt like she was speaking to us like regular people!!! She took her time to explain everything. LOVE IT THERE. And we keep our cat in the condos!

when i found an holistic vet, I was so happy. Unfortunately, Dr. tickert and the woman vet there don't care sick animal.
My cat was so sick and I brought her to the clinic and had a blood test. He said she was fine. but SHE WAS NOT FINE AT ALL. I took her to ER and found out she was so sick and had a terminal stage of cancer and eventually died. Vets at Abingdon do not want to be bothered by pets that really need great attention. I would not recommend this clinic to anyone.

When my very trusted vet said he could do no more for my elderly dog and knew I had questions about alternative therapies and nutrition, he referred me to Abingdon and Dr. Tiekert. This clinic is the best in the area for holistic veterinary medicine. Dr. Tiekert is very knowledgeable in many holistic disciplines and well as being an excellent animal dental surgeon. His chiropractic and nutritional therapies for my dog helped her live longer and have a better quality of life.

We drive about an hour each way to see Dr. Tiekert, and it's well worth the trip. He is knowledgeable in both holistic and allopathic care, so we can be assured of getting whichever type of care is appropriate.

He's a very practical fellow, with a sort of dry temperament... not as new-agey as one might expect for a holistic vet, but I like his style. His trust in his office staff is refreshing. He also feels no need to monopolize your pet's care; especially if you have traveled a long distance to see him, he will set you up with a treatment plan and suggest that you get palliative and/or emergency care closer to home.

Billing for a holistic consultation is "by the minute". That works out well because it includes some treatments, rather than you getting billed for them separately. (Not all treatments are included, and unfortunately I have not kept track of which is which.)

There is also an allopathic vet on staff, so the office is covered when Dr. Tiekert is away.

Abingdon Veterinary Clinic also offers boarding services at reasonable rates.

Message from Animal Care Center

We are proud to carry some of the safest products available to keep our pets safe. 2 products we highly recommend keeping your pet on monthly are Front line and Heartgard from Merial.We also offer Merial Vaccines for Canines & Merial Vaccines for Felines!We also offer 3 year Distempers from Intervet. It is not 3 years worth of vaccine at once, it is guaranteed to keep your pet protected for 3 years. Information on the product can be found HERE. Check out the Merial website to have them send out reminders via email for when your pet is due for their dose of heartgard or frontline! How cool is that?!
