I took my cat here because she developed loose stool in a short period of time and was dehydrated. The doctor I saw was Dr. Spence. Not only did he blame me for what was happening to my cat, he gave me false information and told me my cat would likely not survive. This is a 4 year old cat up to date on all of her shots. I explained to him the issue at hand, and as soon as he heard I had adopted a kitten from the SPCA a month prior he said my cat had distemper even though all the tests came back negative and her last distemper vaccine was 14 months ago. He said that meant she was 2 months overdue so it was my fault for not getting her a booster shot. The next morning I spoke to my vet who said distemper shots are good for 3 years and there is absolutely no chance my cat could have distemper. Spence had me thinking all of my cats were going to get it and die. Furthermore my vet said if there was even a chance she had that, which there wasn't, she would NOT die from it because she was being treated and she was a healthy adult previously vaccinated cat. He seemed to want it to be that. I transferred my cat to the OP Emergency Clinic because of his rude and cocky attitude and there they treated me and my cat with kindness and respect and she got better a few days later. Do not go here. The vets do not even know basic information.

David Spence I believe was the name of the vet I worked with. I thought all vets were the same and incredibly nice and I'm hoping this review finds other people who feel the same to let them know it is not true. I took my pet in for emergency care on an evening, and the inappropriate, incorrect, and unprofessional assumptions the vet made about me were just deplorable. I am pursuing my Doctorate degree and had people coming over for an end-of-semester get-together, and I looked at the person who came with me and said I didn't know what to do since people were coming to the house and no one was there. I had already been at the vets for 1 hr. The vet felt the need to "lecture" me about the importance of my sick pet, and proceeded to tell me that my social life should take a back seat to her. I was already paying $91 for him to look at her--my pet was already my priority however I did not have the phone number to my friends to call them and let them know the situation. I just didn't know what to do because I needed to be there for my pet. Little did he know that I don't have a social life due to the nature of my program and this was the first time since 10 months ago that I was getting together with them. He further did not know that I took in a mom cat and her 5 babies over the summer, got the babies spayed and neutered on my own finances (that I don't have seeing as though I am a college student) and found them good homes since all of the no-kill shelters were over booked for the summer. Pets are always a priority to me but based on his assumptions from my appearance and age he made these inaccurate assumptions about me. He then proceeds to ask what the relationship was between me and the concerned person that came with me. He was wondering if we were dating, living together, brother and sister, in an attempt to "assess the situation." That was NONE of his business. I was so appauld that I took my cat to another vet the next day. I had to put my cat to sleep, no thanks to him, and I did NOT appreciate anything this doctor did for me. I would suggest if you have a pet that appears to be sick but you are unsure and you are utterly concerned, take them to the Orchard Park Vet on Orchard Park Road rather than this place. I will never go back here. Handling the loss of my pet was hard enough--the undue stress this vet added to the situation was completely uncalled for and simply deplorable.

I brought my Rott, Alex, in the middle of the night to this vet only because this was the first emergency vet I could find and Alex appeared to be in pain. The dr. on duty was not only cold and unfeeling, but after everything she said to me she added, "okay?", which quickly became annoying while I was learning that my dog would most likely have to be put to sleep. She explained that he had bloat, which was something I had never heard of before. After telling me what was the matter with Alex, she jumped right into the finances and told me not only did I have to pay immediately, but they would take the time to go through the process of finding out if the money was in the bank , which it was, prior to Alex being taken care of. She confirmed that not only was he in pain, he was in excruciating pain, yet she just kept going on and on about the money she needed while Alex lay in the back. She told me he was already in shock, his main organs and circulation were already shutting down, yet the subject of money, money, money, never ended nor did her constant "okay?" after each sentence. Not knowing what to do, I made a phone call to my sister to ask what I should do (I was hysterical and going into shock myself) and was told it would be best to put Alex to sleep after I told her that that dr. said even after an operation it would probably keep happening to him. It has been a little over a month now and my heart is still broken, the pain of losing him is constant, and I feel that I made the wrong decision, but I cannot reverse that now, he is gone. I would think that a vet dr. would have a little more compassion and try to work with pet owners financially instead of money being the primary concern when a beloved member of a family has their very life at risk. I do not recommend going here if you truly love your pet.

I took my cat to this emergency clinic for what I suspected was a urinary tract infection. Since I had other male cats, he had all the symptoms. I suggested this to the vet tech and the vet. They wouldn't give him an antibiotic, just a fluid and a pain killer. I was told to take him to my own vet in the morning. They did not treat the problem at hand, and he cried all night long. I was charged alot of money for this service. I had to take him to my own vet the next morning(and take off from work). She gave him the antibiotic that he did indeed need, and within 24 hrs., he was back to his normal self. It cost me 2 vet bills and time. If they treated the symptoms, he would have been better and it wouldn't have cost me double the amount. They ignored my pleas for justice, since I felt the bill wasn't fair and didn't treat the problem at hand.

Pros: Available immediately

Cons: Did not treat the problem, and was very expensive!
