I really appreciate the Staff at Union Lake Vet. They are super friendly. I did however want to check around for pricing. My dog had two dental procedures in less than 5 months. I feel like the 2 procedures could have been done at one time and would have likely saved me $1,000. Having to do this at two separate times, I was charged for the bloodwork, anesthesia, and many other items twice. I do understand that my breed of dog is prone to gum disease, but this has definitely been hard on my wallet. They did however work with me by discounting the cleaning and throwing in free therapy for his gums.

I have been a loyal customer for many years now! ULVS has taken care of my dog, 2 ferrets, and 4 cats their whole lives. I trust them and will always use them. They saved my dog's life once and calmed me down during the whole experience. They are caring and one can tell they love their job as soon as you enter the building. I highly recommend them to anyone who has a pet!

I have recently relocated to the Waterford area and my dog, Stella, needed her annual exam. My next door neighbor took her pets to this place for years and told me that I should go there too. I been to several vets over the past few years but I have never been to as clean and nice as this one! Although they are currently remodeling the reception area and things were pretty hectic when Stella and I arrived, I found the staff was so nice and courteous to us that I felt quite at ease there and so did Stella! The Doctor (Reynolds) was quite thorough and explained everything to me before examining Stella. She took a lot of time with us and I felt assured that she hadn't missed a thing. The price I paid was similar to the other vets but the quality was far superior. I would reccomend this place to anyone who cares alot about their pet. I am going back in a few weeks to get Stella groomed at their grooming service accross the parking lot.

We've been a ULVH family for 15 years, beginning with our 16 year old pup named Brandi and now with our 6 year old pup named Bella. We LOVE our pups and truly value their quality of life. There have been a couple of times over the years that I have been concerned about the cost of our visits, however once I walk into the facility to be greeted by the friendly smiling staff and the fragrance of santizing cleaner my concern begins to dwindled. Dr. Plein is our veterinarian of preference, however we have been seen by several of the doctors. Our pups have their annual physicals, dental cleanings, surgical needs....Everything is handled at ULVH. Our eldest dog, Brandi, recently passed. On what was for sure one of the hardest days of my life, I was greeted on the phone by a caring staff from the person that helped me while sobbing on the phone, to the escort to our room, to the doctor who came in, to the employee who came in on her day off when she heard of Brandi's passing to be with me. Bella is a naughty dog. She bites, growls and jumps. What she lacks in proper dog ettiquecy, she makes up for in cuteness. The ULVH recognize that, treat her with careful hands and still give her a treat on her way out the door. These are just a couple of the reasons that I am with ULVH and intend to stay with them. The quality of care we have received far out weighs the minimal cost savings we could find else where. There are some aspects of life that you just can't put a price tag on. This is one of them.

My puppy got very sick after having her LEPTO vaccine. They told me that some dogs have a reaction, but I would call this a little more than a ""reaction"".She had the vaccine at 10 am on a Saturday, and woke up at 3am on Sunday vomiting, and did not stop. I was waiting at the door the next morning for ULVH to open with my sick pup. Dr. Szasz told me there was no way my pup would have this type of reaction so long after the vaccine, a vaccine reaction would normally occur within the first few hours. They gave her some medication to stop the vominting. (Which of course they charged me $50 for, on top of what I already paid) Monday at 3 am she woke up vomiting again, and once again I was back at the vet first thing. This litterally went on for 6 days. They ran all sorts of test, took x-rays, and even decided to spay her a little early so they could do exploratory surgery. After biopsying her intestines, and sending them out for testing, they let me know that she is perfectly healthy. They really weren't sure what was causing her to get so sick. So $1500.00 later I still had no answers. However they did recommend that we continue with the series of LEPTO vaccines. I said no, and Dr. Herdon tried to make me feel like a bad pet owner. I did some research on the LEPTO vaccine, and I read that some dogs have had seziures, lost feeling in their hind quarters, and in a few cases some dogs died after having the vaccine. During that week, Ibelieve we saw every vet in the on staff, and they all told me there is no way the LEPTO vaccine would cause her to be so sick. I feel that they really don't care about anything but the money. This vet office is much more expensive then most, and the quality of care is severly lacking. I will say,out of everyonedid like Dr. Hawker, however I will not be returning. My puppy is my baby, she is so important to me, and I hate to see her in pain. Before your vet tells you your dog has to have a vaccine,do some research.

I liked the fact that this Hospital has all woman Dr.'s. I did have a cat with a attitude but she was my cat and I loved her more than anything. Princess Precious Elizabeth MacDonald Heinz!!!!!I gave her to my Mom before my Mom passed. \r\nAnyways Precious got sick the begining of March, so we took her to this hospital to be checked...\r\nHUGE MISTAKE first they told us they needed to keep her for tests, than told us we needed to pay $1600.00 today to have them treat her!!!!Well I didn't have the money for two more days (payday) and they refused to treat Precious until I paid the full amount!!! In fact I was told to take her home until I had the money!!!!!!Real caring people......\r\nThan they said give us $400 and we will keep her tonight, so we did and they kept her. I live 5 min from there and I just got home and they called me and said she had a mass on her lungs and I should put her to sleep.....Well we turned around and sure enough they put her to sleep. Than on the way out they handed my husband $10.00 and said we over paid by $10.00?????? I have never been so hurt by anyone in my life. In fact the one tech keep telling me the reason people had to pay was so she could keep her job!!!!! Do you think someone cares when they are faced with putting their beautiful pet to sleep??????HELL NO....\r\nI would NEVER take another pet to that place, they are very cold and uncaring people..I feel better now and I know my new kitty will go to Gasow's in Birmingham where they care about your children (animals).
