To "Tragedy Occured" - It is highly unlikely that your dog died alone as there is a technician that lives upstairs in the hospital. Are you sure that you do not mean "Saybrook Vet Clinic"? They are also located in Old Saybrook and have a much smaller practice with no live in technician, where your dog would have certainly been alone.

To "Bad Experience" - I find it hard to believe that any of the doctors at Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook would ever suggest euthanasia unless there was absolutely nothing they could do - the doctors there go the distance and especially in orthopedic cases like yours. The doctor who owns the practice is extremely skilled in orthopedic surgeries and it is HIGHLY unlikely he would suggest euthanasia over surgery.

To everyone: I have been a faithful client of the Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook for many years. I am very familiar with the practice. The doctors on staff go above and beyond to do what's best for your animal. Never ever in my experience have the doctors recommended euthanasia unless they deem it absolutely necessary.

Please note that Old Saybrook has two animal hospitals - Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook (located on Spencer Plain Rd next to Sal's Pizza) and Saybrook Vet Clinic (located on route 154 towards Essex). AHOS has an overnight technician and many advanced technologies - things that Saybrook Vet does not offer.

I have been going to AHOS for several years now. I have 2 cats. - both mid years. My younger cat got caught up 2 years ago in the Chinese pet food poisoning debacle and became VERY ill. Dr. Fedorich diagnosed her with the appropriate problem before the poisoning scandal become communicated to the public at large. My cat was on deaths door - he figured out a treatment plan, she was hospitalized for a week and the prognosis was grim every day. 2 years later - I still have my sweet cat with us - sure she has problems and needs regular kidney treatments at home to compensate for the damage done to her kidneys by the poisoning. But without Dr. Fedorich's quick and complete diagnosis and treatment approach - I might have lost her. Each member of his vet team are always helpful and professional. Pet medical care is tricky and often expensive - it is good to know that there are vet teams out there that can help in times of a crisis!

My dog had been ill for a while, throwing up and not feeling well. She was still playing frisbee and swimming, but we could tell she wasn't her usual perky self. The vet took xrays and biopsies of everything, and found nothing wrong. He said, he needed to do surgery to get full thickness biopsies of all her major organs, that that was all he could do for her. Well, we weren't so sure about that. We didn't want her to go through that kind of operation, unless it was the last resort, so we held off. A few weeks later, she got much worse and could no longer hold her food down. Again, they said there was nothing they could do except the surgery, so after asking them the question, "is she strong enough to survive the surgery"? they said Yes, so we went ahead with it! We were out of options! The site of her going back into that facility with her head down, tail wagging low, was my last site of her alive. She survived the surgery, but sometime the next early morning, our girl passed away - alone in a crate, by herself - no one by her side. She was totally alone there, no humans, no other dogs. The only one there. She died alone and we weren't able to be there for her! This was how we lost our girl - which we didn't expect since we were told she would survive the surgery. We were completely devastated and the guilt about her being alone plagues me even to this day.

The surgery was not the right option - she didn't survive the surgery. And if that wasn't bad enough, TWO weeks later - yes - all that waiting later, the full thickness biopsies came back, and guess what - her biopsies came back fine! She was healthy as far as that went! So what was wrong with her? Why couldn't they figure it out? After making her go through all that when she was ill, her dying alone in their facility, them telling us she would make it when she didn't, now her biopsies are fine? Their explanation?...; "well, every year I have one dog that that we get with an illness we just can't diagnose, no matter how hard we try, and this year it was your dog". Well, I don't know - it seemed at the time like he was really trying to help her, he did consult with other vets, etc, however, and she was sick, but we didn't know she was dying. We thought the surgery would help her. It didn't. The loss is horrible and I still miss her so much. And the LAST thing you want to hear when you lose your most trusted and loyal companion iis, "this year it was your dog". My recommendation is, find someone else.

My dog was hit by a car, and when we tried to bring him in to get checked out, it was determined he had a dislocated ankle. Very narrow-minded and political, and they pushed euthanasia way too forcefully. We received a second opinion supporting our belief that there were other options for him than surgery and euthanasia, and he will be undergoing treatment soon. Neither I, nor my second opinion, understand why euthanasia was even an option. I would be careful about taking your dog there.

My dog had a horrible abscess in her mouth from a tooth. My previous vet never told me to have her teeth cleaned. The Vet at Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook immediately recommended a dental cleaning and the problem was gone the next day. The price was higher than I expected, but the service was very good and I would highly recommend them.

They were not my regular vet until recently, our dog was hit by a car and after I phoned they opened up the office just for us. They took such good care of our dog and of us. They will forever have a special place in our hearts.

They were kind and courtous, the establishment is clean and there is ample parking.
