My family here has been going to Dr Oplinger for our pets since 1991. He is by far the most excellent vet we have ever encountered. A gentle soul with a heart as big as this state I always feel that he loves our pet as much as we do. And for a bunch of pet lovers, on a fixed income, his pricing is always within our means. We love you Dr John!

The last of my animals to enter this office was my 2 year old lab mix. He had lost a lot of weight, very quickly. I was told to bring him in. I was ASSURED he would be seen right away. We waited with him for more than two hours. Watched as his breathing became labored and he started to whine. And grew upset as we seen healthier animals go back for routine exams and shots. He was only brought back when other customers complained about seeing him like that. (Didn't matter that we complained about his pain) When he was seen, we were made to believe he stood a very good chance at recovery..... all we had to do was leave him there for treatment. After waiting that long, I should have known better. I got a call the next morning telling me my dog had died. I was then asked what I wanted done with his body. I was there in under 30 minutes. It was obvious he had died hours before I got any call. If I had been told there wasn't much to be done, I'd never have left him to suffer and die alone. 24 hours after bringing my dog there, I paid a high vet bill and took my Azzar home, to be buried. No member of a family should be left to die alone! Especially, not so someone can make money. Vets, like other doctors, should tell families their loved ones are going to die,not give false hope for profit! Before that, I had a puppy seen and treated for valley fever. After being cleared and no longer needing the meds, he died in my arms. Maybe if I had agreed to buy the pills from them, (instead of saving hundreds and buying from a pharmacy) he'd have lived a full life. Oplinger stopped caring when he moved to the new office.

My 12 year old Dachshund was viciously attacked by a coyote in our own backyard. I called Dr. Oplingers clinic and was told to bring her right in. She is alive today because of the knowledge care and compassion of the staffers Becky, Debbie the tech who kept a watchful eye on her and Dr. Oplinger. God bless those who cared for her.

When I found a small, cold toy poodle ON Route 60 in the middle of nowhere, Glenda from the ZIP station took her in [we were hoping she was local to Salome] and Tony at the Salome Feed Store checked her and discovered her to be microchipped [tatoos work just as well.] She has been with Dr. Oplinger's office [due to cold, trauma, and known heart condition and diabetes] where Tony went after discovering the chip and Oplinger's staffer, Debbie, recognized the name. She's going home thanks to the assistance of these people. Thanks to Oplinger's staff for their assistance!

Dr. Oplinger was the only one to help when the Humane Society of Wickenburg was first formed and taking animals back in 2004. The other vet clinic in town was always too busy and lacked empathy for the animals. Dr. Oplinger was very patient in answering questions; very professional and dedicated to every animal that was taken in to him. He has a special way with animals and it shows.

Our dog was hit by a car on Grand Avenue in Morristown, AZ. A good samritan took him to an emergency clinic in Peoria and subsequently he was transferred to the Humane Society. By sheer coincidence we found him at the shelter just hours before being euthanized because his leg was so badly crushed.
I was at Dr. Oplingers office when they opened. He immediately took my dog, gave him pain medicine, took xrays and gave us our options. One, take his leg off, two, go to an orthopedic dog surgeon for 3-5 thousand dollars or he would do his best to scrape the bones together, pin it and see what happens. It has been four years and my dog does not even limp. Doctor Oplinger only charged me $450.00 inluding xrays.
A few years ago he did have unpleasant staff but has since replaced some of them. Doesn't matter what kind of staff he has. He is good doctor and a good human being for keeping prices low and giving excellent care.

The day after our 8 year old dog was seen for difficulty breathing (and with no clear diagnosis or warnings to watch her closely) she had severe trouble breathing. A call to Dr. Oplinger at 11:30 p.m. got an answering service which inaccurately told us the location of the nearest emergency clinic (very far away.) We waited as long as we could, found out on our own where the closest emergency clinic was, but she died on the way. Dr. O. never called in the morning as the service had said he would, plus when Carly's death was brought to his staff's attention they were incredibly insensitive. A letter to the editor brought responses from others with similar sad stories about their pets and this vet.

PROS: Convenient location during regular business hours.
CONS: Rude staff, little concern for animals in true need
