Hi am not at happy with Petsmart vets. It is all true that they don't care about the pets they just want to make money out of pets by giving lots of things.
I felt very uncomfortable when they took my pet in the back room and do all the tests and give the shots but not in front of me atleast whatever they could do in the room. I have seen they don't care how the pet is feeling they just want to scare the pet by taking them away from the owner to the back room. Sometimes they told me these test would take too long so leave the pet here until the evening when i refused they did it in 20 minutes. I don;t understand why they want us to leave our pet with them. I am with their wellness plan so i will go there until i finish the agreement for routine shots but at any cost i am not going to let them treat him for any illness.

I decided to take my cat to this location since it was close to where I lived. There is absolutely nothing to recommend this vet. While the administrative staff is friendly enough, the vets themselves are not, and speak down to you as if you had absolutely no understanding of your pet. They hardly touch the animals themselves, letting an assistant do most of the work. They don't do any of the vaccinations with you in the room, instead taking your pet into a back room where they proceed to manhandle them (there's a window around the corner you can look in), holding the pets down and throwing them about with no regard to how a frightened pet is doing.\r\n\r\nThey gave my cat the vaccinations and exams necessary for a kitten. The issue? She was two years old at the time, and had already had everything! They gave her so many unnecessary vaccinations that she got ill and when I called to ask what to do, they wanted me to bring her back for more vaccinations. I called another vet for a second opinion and she was horrifed at how many vaccinations my cat had been given.\r\n\r\nPlus she was supposed to come back after a month for booster shots (!!!) and my cat was so terrified, she ripped the side of her carrier off.\r\n\r\nThey give your pet a huge amount of unnecessary things just so they can charge you an arm and a leg. A routine check-up should not cost $300! Plus their ""wellness plan"" is a scam, adding yet more things your pet doesn't need and quite frankly would be happier without.\r\n\r\nI am never taking my cat back there again, and I recommend that you take your pet elsewhere too. There are plenty of individual vets in the area who will give your pets better care for a better price.

My dog now hates petsmart. I got a different doctor every time I went there. Also they did a blood test on my 8 week old puppy just becuase she was vomitting after her inital shots. I honestly thought this place was out for my money. Once they did the blood test, it was worth the value to get on their "plan". So I did the rest of her shots and what not at Banfield. The spay was good and I think she got good care, but I just always felt I was getting ripped off.

Our two dogs and one cat have a wellness plan with Banfield and we have had very good experience. In particular the staff love our dogs and they love them. Gromit and D'argo are even excited to go to the vet. The downside is that the Vets keep on changing and sometimes they are limited in what they are authorized to prescribe (for example only Advantage for flee control even though Sentinel works better for our dogs) but are willing to make exceptions when pushed. The staff however keeps us coming back.

PROS: Great staff
CONS: Ever changing vets
