I recently moved here and had to quickly find a vet for my dog. I found a troubling lump on her on Sunday and called on Monday morning for an appointment and they saw us later that day. They made my dog feel at ease through the exam and eased my worrying mind and watery eyes. You know how tough it is when you are worried about your pet. The care they showed her and the empathy they showed me left me in awe. Without hesitation I would recommend them anyone. I hope my pup never has to go back except for annual exam but if she does I know she'll be i ngreat hands.

Both of our pets, Murphy our dog, and Max our cat, are seen at Park Vet. We have found the care there to be excellent. Recently, our dog, Murphy was run over by a car. He sustained several injuries and had to have surgery on his front leg and tail. The vets were wonderful. They stayed late, even on weekends, to take care of Murphy and be sure he was healing well. They were kind and compassionate and very thorough with their care. The charges for emergency and surgical care were fair. Murphy is now recovering and still loves to go see his friends at Park Vet. I would recommend this vet without any reservations.

Pros: Comprehensive care, Compassionate, Reasonable Prices

I came on to let everyone know what a great Vet Hospital I found and was shocked to see all the negatives. My experience was totally different. I switched vets because I wasn't happy w/ my other one. These guys were very nice and professional. They offered to get my history from my other vet, made the appointment for the same week and said they couldn't wait to meet me and my dog Ginger - even called her by name. Then, when I got there the place is so nice inside-no smells, staff was welcoming. I agree they looked a little busy and maybe could have used another person up front, but when I checked out the same girl who helped in the room just went around and checked me out - with a big smile on her face. The Dr. was awesome, really friendly and gave me some ideas that my other vet hadn't about my pets health. Sorry the rest of you were unhappy, but I highly recommend them to anyone who wants great care for their pet.

Pros: professional staff, clean and my dog left happy!

Cons: Busy road

I have found Park Vet to be extremely expensive. If you have a lot of disposable income, this place is wonderful. Their favorite saying seems to be 'to better assess the condition' and you can easily spend hundreds of dollars in cytologies, various levels of bloodwork, ultrasounds, etc. on each pet. You are best served by going in already armed with knowledge of treatment options and then fighting for reasonable courses of actions. This is not the place for practical solutions to pet health problems. I wish this level of healthcare was available for my children!

Pros: Willing to do *anything* to help your pet, clean

Cons: Expensive, impractical, don't listen to the customer

.

Costs too high, vets too busy to take the time to listen to owners, grumpy reception. Technically everything is there. But... this place is about high tech, don't bother the vet with the details 'cause he/she's too busy rushing to get to and charge the next patient using their inflated schedule of charges. You will be lucky to see the same vet twice.

Find a more personal place. I am.

I found that they had a real attitude problem. They ignore what you tell them about your pet and will push lots of unnecessary meds and tests. I'm sure that they deal with all kinds of people, but as a conscientious owner who is with my dogs 24/7, I think I have a good understanding of their issues and I expect a vet to take me seriously when I talk to them.

I found the provided procedures not always geared toward the health of my dogs, but likely to generate income and to cover themselves for legal matters. It is definitely not a clinic for knowledgeable and assertive pet owners, who want more than basic vet care from veterinarians.
Staff and doctors were friendly, but so are the ones in less expensive vet clinics.

I changed over to Park Vet from another local vet who I felt was too expensive for what I was getting. I can't say the prices are lower, but I feel that I truly get my $$'s worth from this group of professionals. They even send out ?aires to new clients to see how they can improve! How cool is that? My adult cat, who isn't fond of her annual visits was treated with a gentle approach, even when she was sassy! They were able to vaccinate her without stressing her out more than she already was. I have since adopted a sick kitten from the shelter and they have nursed her back to health. I was getting worried that she wouldn't make it and it was getting expensive with all the antibiotics, etc. but they explained everything so well to me that I never felt I was being taken advantage of. The proof is that my kitten is now well enough to spay!

I highly recommend Park Vet. I've seen almost all of the Dr.s there and there isn't one I wouldn't recommend.

I've read the other reviews that express concern over the prices at Park Vet. I did a lot of price shopping when I moved here from South Carolina. As far as yearly exams/vaccines they were comparable. Their surgery prices seemed high until I asked what it included. That's where I found the difference! Other places didn't include things like pain meds, hospitalization, Doctor care, etc. I have dogs and cats and have found the staff at Park to love them all. Their care and compassion is the best ever. My pets are very important to me and what I've found at Park is that my pets are important to them too. That's worth every penny. The hospital is clean and has no offensive odor like other places I've been to. I highly recommend them to anyone who cares about their pets.

I have entrusted our family pets' care to the Park Veterinary Hospital practice for more than 17 years. I have found the staff to be knowlegeable and caring, and the clinical services to be top notch. I have some medical training (human) and a reasonable basis for comparison of quality/standards in veterinary care. My animals are very important family members and I want and expect competent medical care - no less than my expectations are for my personal medical caregivers. Vets spend years in training. Practice costs: diagnostic equipment, staff salaries and benefits, medication and supplies, continuing education, insurance, and building maintenance and supplies are no less expensive for veterinary practices than for human medical practices. My animal 'family' has enjoyed long lives and good health - thanks to the excellent preventive care and -when needed- treatment provided by the Park Vet staff. We also have been able to travel knowing that our animals were protected, comfortable, and happily engaged in the kennel at Park Vet Hospital. As our pets approached the end of their lives - when what was broken could not be fixed, we were invited to share their last moments. Our grief was acknowleged and shared by the staff from a respectful distance. I cannot express how important this was to us. Without reservation, I recommend Park Veterinary Hospital and its staff/services. The care is PROACTIVE and this philosophy of preventive medicine in the long run helps keep our pets healthier and happier (and us too!) and in the long run, it serves to keep costs down. Medical care is expensive. I can't say how the costs of this practice compare with others in the area --I do believe that the charges are reasonable and I have never felt that any treatment /service was rendered unnecessarily. As important, I know that my animals have had the best care possible.

Pros: Competent, Caring, Long Hours

Cons: On a busy road - difficult to exit. Kennel space books quickly

We have a relatively young dog at 10 months, and have been very pleased with the care provided by Park. Basic care has been excellent by the friendly staff. Additionally, our dog has a somewhat unusual genetic disease. Our vet hit the books and did her best to learn more about the disease so that she could explain it further and point us to additional resources. More recently, we had to take our dog to a specialty vet due to an emergency that occurred on a weekend. When the specialty vet forwarded their records to Park, our vet at Park called us to follow-up to make sure that our dog was recovering and to answer any questions. Even with his genetic condition, Park has not pushed for any additional tests or other procedures (and we requested the genetic test due to symptoms we had observed at home).

I recently took my 2 dogs in for a bath due to the Durham water restrictions. Guess how much it cost me...$100. Yes, $100 to wash 2 dogs. I had been there once before and thought they were pricey, but this was it for me. I had to have my dogs washed, but I'd rather put them in the shower with me then pay that again!

I took my kitten here for his first round of shots. Since then, they have had me back every week, running all kinds of tests that I never asked for. Last week my bill was $200!! This was a major reality check. I have now changed vets. My new vet says they get alot of similar complaints about park vet. Example - my kitten had an itchy spot on his paw pad - they ran a ringworm culture and charged me $70 for it, without even discussing it with me!! Now, less than 2 weeks later, his paw has completely healed, and they haven't even let me know the results of the culture! I'm guessing it was negative. They also charged me $19 to look at his ear and tell me it looked good (listed as "ear cytology" on the bill).

I highly recommend Park Vet if you have a lot of disposable income and not that many pets and want top notch care for your furry friends. Otherwise: ouch! They can really make a dent in your pocketbook. The service and staff are outstanding, don't get me wrong: they are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. But they are always finding new tests that have to be done, down to optional dental care and other discretionary things. I can't even walk in there without dropping $400 by the time I leave. At some point: enough is enough! I, too, have switched to my old vet because I couldn't take it anymore.

The staff is very caring toward animals, but I found them to be much more expensive than other vets. If you are willing to spend lots of money on your pets' dental care, then I would recommend them, but they are a little pushy about getting you to spend money on dental care, in my opinion. And there is always an extra charge for the "dental exam". Most other vets I've been to, include this in the exam. That said, when my dog had to be put down due to kidney failure (a genetic disorder), staff was very sympathetic. So overall, very good vet, but charge a lot.

I have 3 pets (dogs and cats) that I've taken to Park Vet and I've been extremely pleased with their facility. The staff is friendly, informed, caring, and wonderful with the animals. I've been so pleased with how they've cared for and treated my pets and how careful they've been to talk with me about any questions or concerns that I have. Best vet I've been to. Highly recommended!

I recently visited Park Vet with my new puppy on the recommendation of friends. I found the staff very approachable and friendly, and most important extremely knowledgeable. They take their time to explain everything to you, to ensure your animal is getting the best care possible. For a first time puppy owner, I found their insight invaluable, and really appreciated all the time they took with me. I highly recommend them to all pet owners, new and old alike!

Prices are comparable to the other Vets I've used in Raleigh and Cary. I also have not had any services suggested for either of my pets. Any special items I needed for my pets are also available on the location. The vets easily answer questions on the phone and return voicemails without a need for extra vet visits. My two cats even enjoy going for the friendly staff; however, they may change their mind if a needle is involved.

This place is very expensive, and it seems to find ingenious ways to add extra charges. It's to the point where I no longer trust them to be honest about my pet's health - I view them as mechanics who consistently tell me my "thingomobulator" is eroded and I need a new one for $200.00. I have switched my business to my old vet, who is across town but trustworthy, good, and inexpensive.

Very pricey vet, and you have to keep saying no to additional services they love to add to your visit. Their checkups are ok. I had to specifically request the dr to do a full examination for my pet, since they were happy to say that he looked good from far.
