DR. Dressel and staff are nothing short of "TOP NOTCH" we have been going for ever and are more than satisfied with him and his understanding of Pets. I did have to put down my boxer Dixie and he made it as painless as he could. Our kids swam together for CLST and it was a fun time. We always talk about our kids and what they are up to and I really feel at home there. He performed a miracle on "Bandit" and saved his life. Thanks to all! "Chief" is on his way to a full recovery also after a really close call with 2 big neighbor dogs. Janson Booth and family

Dr. Dressel is the best!!! Sadly, I will no longer take my pets to him. When I took my beloved Hank to be put down (after 10 years of struggling with Wobbler's Disease), the assistant treated me like crap. What was already a heart-breaking moment was made much worse by her unnecessary and irrelevant judgments. The rest of the staff was very kind, but I will not take the chance of meeting that assistant again.

My 8 year old dog August, became very ill overnight, we took her to see Dr. Dressel and found out that she had multiple life threating issues. She ended up having to stay in the hospital for three weeks. Dr. Dressel had to do a lot of research to figure out her condition and was updating us everyday, even on Sundays when they were closed. I'm convinced if we had taken her to any other vet, they would have given up on her as she had gotten much worse almost to the point of death, before she got better. His staff is unbelievably amazing and just as compassionate as he is!! He saved part of my family. How do you say thank you for that? We will be forever loyal in taking our pets to him in the future.

Love Dr. Mike, I ish he could be my Dr. He has more compassion than my personal Dr. The staff is wonderful. He has been my Vet for 10+ years. I refer everyone in the Chimney Lakes, Oak Leaf and Arygle area to him.

They took us in in an emergency and offered such great care! Dr. Dressel was so nice and took time to address all our concerns. They may be a little more expensive, but in the end I am looking for a great vet, not cheap prices!

We have taken all our pets to Dr. Dressel since he opened the doors. Although you may find cheaper annual visits at CCHS or Herschel, you get what you pay for. (not really that much of a cost difference anyway) For example those places don't include a physical and fecal with annual shots. Even with a full waiting room, the doc never rushes you through questions or concerns and always addresses you and your pet by name. For more expensive procedures and long term care, he has always worked with us on price and/or payments. When we had our elderly cat put to sleep after a year of expensive care, Dr. Mike never even mentioned payment. We just returned after a week when we were ready to start paying the bill. (this, I'm sure, was just a loyal customer benefit) Free nail trim for regular customers, too. Great customer service always makes it "worth it."
PS. Dr. D is a Gator alum!

Chimney Lakes Animal Hospital used to be where we took our two dogs. In 2006 the rates went up slightly, 2007 they raised their prices about 20% and now in 2008 they have raised them another 25%.

I agree, the care is great, however, you can find wonderful care at several other surrounding clinics. I'm sorry CLAH, it's just not worth it and unfortunately you have lost my business.

We moved to the area not too long ago and needed a vet for our "babies". We were happy to find a vet so close. It was easy to get an appointment. The vet (I'm so bad at names) was very nice and seemed to really know his stuff. He was patient with our questions. They also offer free nail trimming! Love this place!

Dr. Dressle and his staff at Chimney Lakes Animal Hospital are soft spoken, gentle and willing to take the time to make each patient (and their owner) like they are their only focus. The hospital is small, cheerfully decorated and comfortable. The office 'pets' casually sun at the windows while patients are brought in and out without too long of a wait. The cost of services seems much lower than other vets I have tried. If you are looking for a 'special' type of vet, I you give Dr. Dressle a try at Chimney Lakes Animal Hospital.
