I have used Dr. Sandy Sanford from this clinic for the past 14 years, and have used Sweetwater for the last 5 years of that. I have always found the clinic to be clean, the staff caring, and the doctors VERY capable. I have met with the other vets as well. I also know for a fact that the office stays up to date on current trends in animal care. I am a pro dog trainer and have MANY clients who speak very highly of them. I have also referred MANY clients and always hear back. This is the only vet in the area I rarely hear anything bad about. I DO know that they are an extremely busy office, after all, they are one of the most popular vet clinics in the area. However I've never had a problem with any of them. Of course, I AM polite in my approaching them and I take into consideration their busy-ness. But I have to say I'm surprised anybody thinks they have a high death rate, I'd like to know the references on that because I have found the opposite to be true. They've caught diagnosis on several different client dogs as well as my own that other vets missed. I have to say a definite 5 star in my book.

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with this Veterinary clinic. I'm a pet sitter so I have visited a number of vets in the SCV over the years as part of my job (routine visits, surgeries, emergencies, etc.) and Sweetwater is the only clinic that I have had constantly excellent service with - not only with my client's pets but with my own. The veterinarians and staff have always been very caring and helpful and seem to really love my pets. Also, while the clinic is spotlessly clean, it doesn't have that unappealing cleanser smell which makes the visits that much more pleasant.

This clinic has one of the lowest death ratings I have ever seen. I have been to may vets over the years to find the perfect one after I moved and they're it. I have also worked at vets in the past and no! it's not always how it seems! They were most likely in surgery and that's why there were no vets available to see you! Where are you getting your "death rate" info from? I knew of clinics that lost multiple pets a year and I know Sweetwater isn't even close! If you ever asked for a tour they would show you how well equipped and up-to-date they are with monitoring equipment and the latest safety for you pets. I guess I just noticed it because I was really jealous that I was never able to complete surgery with the aid of a machine that constantly read blood pressure, temp, heart rate, oxygen and had a ECG reading. With regards to no certification needed to work there-- are you talking techs??? Because you're in for a rude awakening! No clinic requires certification to work--duh! You need a license to work with the anesthesia and vaccines among other highly important things but if you got rid of all the non-registered techs (which was myself thank you!) who did not have a license you would have no one to care for your pets. I am sorry but I was in this business for years and to read this by someone who is obviously misconstruing the facts and making up fiction about the people I have come to love and have saved my pets life (Dr. Sanford was the second referral I had taken my cat to before he finally diagnosed and cured my baby) just makes me so angry.

I have been a devoted client to the Sweetwater Vet. Clinic for well over 2 years.The saff has always seemed to be caring , along with the doctors.The clinic is beautiful and i had never had any concerns until i referred a relative. My sister's cat was diagnosed with kidney failure and she wanted better care for him, I remembered being at the clinic and having a conversation with another client who was going through the same thing with her cat. She stated he was diagnosed and put on daily fluids, which were done 3 days a week at Sweetwater.My Sister's cat was seen and diagnosed by Dr. Mark Williams. He recommended the hills K/D diet and daily fluids. However my sister could never get her cat in for the fluids.. The no did not stop at the receptionist. My sister and I spoke with many different people including the very rude and uncaring Denise Williams. After about a week the cat would not eat or drink any thing, so my sister an Idecided to go to the clinic. When we arrived there was no employee at the front desk. We stood there for 10 mins before being greeted by a man by the name of Jim who was not wearing scrubs. As we explained the situation to him, the blank look on his face told me he had no idea what i was talking about. He then told us that there would be a wait, but we would be seen. We waited for over half an an hour. Not even one other client came or went. Then another obscene women named Felecia came out stating that they were very busy and could not see the cat. She then gave us the info to a clinic over 45 mins. away, that was not even open. As a result of this my sister's cat passed before the other clinic opened. This was over 4 months ago.We have never received a call, letter or comment regarding the situation, despite the numerous messages left for management by my sister an I...... But they found time to send us a sympathy card. Outraged by this, we did our research! They have the highest clinic death rate. That's because no certification is required to work there! There are 4 investigations pending against this clinic, including animal cruelty! Records prove that most of the death occur either when left alone over night at the clinic, or during procedures.. I would not recommend this clinic to anyone who values their pet's life... to be continued

We've taken two of our dogs to this office for multiple visits. They're OK for anything basic and the clinic is nice and clean. However, when we had an emergency come up, the receptionists would not let us come in without an appointment. They told us that for emergencies they recommended an animal hospital located over 45 minutes away from us. (This was said despite the fact that the information they hand out on their clinic says that emergencies are taken during normal office hours.) The end result was that our dog did not get care in time and passed away. Despite this, we were going to take our new puppy there for a routine office visit. I made an appointment for a specific day due to my work schedule. When we came in, they said we did not have an appointment because, as it turns out, they made the appointment for the wrong day. No apologies were made, nothing was done to get us in at the next available appointment. Even though the office was not busy when we came in they would not go ahead and give our puppy her vaccination because we did not have an appointment. We've just had too many problems with the front office to recommend this clinic. We like the doctors and the back office staff is very nice. It's just too much of a pain to get in to see them.
