Last summer my beloved boxer got sick on a Sunday afternoon. I got the phone book to find a vet that may see her. I found the ad that said the Dr's had emergency service. We got her to Dr Jay and Betsy as quickly as we could, but we were too late to save her. Dr Jay was prepping her for emergency surgery and even tried CPR to save her but it was too late. They were very compassionate and it was then that I could see how dedicated they were. A few days later we even received a sympathy card from them. Since then we have acquired another dog that had a lot of "lack of care" type problems. They have treated him a few times and do very well with him. My only complaint is price, but I'm sure its competitive with other vets.

Drs. Betsy and Jay Hendley are great. I've tried other clinics in the area and they are far superior. I really appreciate the time they take with my pet and always explain everything in detail for me.

In response to negative reviews...

This practice used to be owned by Dr.Stansell. I tried his practice a few years ago when I first moved to Calhoun. The staff was rude and I was not allowed to go back with my dog. I had questions that I couldn't get answered because everything went through the receptionist and I NEVER even meet the doctor. I never went back because of this. Then I heard that Drs. Jay and Betsy had taken over the practice and after trying all the other horrible vets in town, I tired them out. They are GREAT! My first experience with them was my beloved dog being diagnosed with cancer. They gave him and us such TLC in a very devasting situation. They helped us give him very afordable treatments that helped us have some remaining months with him. When it came time to put him down they came to our home so that he would be more comfortable and surrounded with his family. I have also taken the rest of my animals to them for check ups, emergencies, and even boarding and would not trust my babies with anyone else. Betsy even sent me pics of my dogs playing in the yard when they were being boarded.
Keep in mind when reading the negative reviews that this was BEFORE Drs. Jay and Betsy took over. You would be crazy to take your animals any where else!

Dr. Betsy and Dr. Jay are the best. They are kind people who always listen to my concerns and make educated, accurate diagnoses. I feel they honestly have my pet's best interest in mind and give my pet the best treatment possible. I will without a doubt continue to see them for all my pet's needs.

All of my experiences with the doctors and staff at Animal Hospital of Gordon County have been wonderful. The Drs. Hendley are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring. I have had pets for a long time, have known several veterinarians, and have even worked in a vet clinic myself--but AHGC is definitely the place where I have felt the most comfortable leaving my animals. The staff is obviously comprised of animal lovers and I know my babies are always treated with the best everyone there has to offer. I also think that their prices are reasonable and comparable. Thank you, AHGC!!

My dog and I have been going to Drs. Jay and Betsy Hendley for years. I only wish that I lived closer now so they could treat my dog all the time. Everytime I take my dog to them, she is happy to be there, and she gets special treatment. It's nice to go to vets who are obviously animal lovers. They go above and beyond here to help my dog. I can't recommend this vet highly enough.

Well, Well, well......Isn't it strange how someone could leave a review on here only to have it mysteriously dissappear?? In case some of you missed my review that is no longer here......I had an experience with mrs. betsy hendley in Dalton when she worked at an animal hospital there. (lower case name because she does not deserve capitals....) To make it short and sweet.....this person is a viper and has the heart of a king cobra!!!! She has no simpathy for your animal or you as well!! With her it is only about the money and your feelings and love for your animal don't mean squat to her!!! She will be nice to you.......as long as you shell out the cash. Try telling her one time that you don't have a job and can't afford the surgery (which by the way was unnecessary anyway) and see how kind she is then. Her suggestion for you will then be to simply put your pet down and she is willing to do it right then for you. (because it is fast and easy money) You can erase my reviews all you want betsy but i will always continue to tell people the kind of person you really are!!!! Which is a poor excuse for a human being who proclaims to be a vet!!!

In my opinion Doctor Betsy and Jay Hendley are definitely the greatest veterinarians. They have provided excellent medical care and attention for my dog Sasha. Since I live over 90 miles away, and have access to many vets in my area, I believe there are no better qualified doctors to provide the professional caring medical attention for my loving dog. It is definitely worth the time and effort to travel so far to get the required medical attention for my pet.

We live in the Dalton area and our dog was in terrible shape on Sunday. She just went down hill very quickly from Saturday to Sunday. We called everywhere because we needed someone to come to our home to put her down since we could not transport her because she was in so much pain. We called everyone even our own vet who is in our area. Jay and Betsy Hendley were the only ones who took time out of their Sunday to come do this for us and our beloved pet. They were so caring and kind to do this for us even though we were not their clients. These two are the most precious people I know and what they did for us could never be matched. My husband and I have discussed bringing our other pet to them even though it would be a 30 minute drive because of how wonderful they are. Thank you both for the wonderful people and veterinarians that you both are. We are forever indebted to you both.

The new owners are really nice. We go to them because they are professional and are more current on modern veterinary methods which we find to be a plus- We are not necessarily looking for a vet that has a huge out-going personality, like the previous person that posted before me- We just want our animals to be well cared for and we feel like we are getting that from Dr's Betsy and Jay. I believe that the quality of the service has improved since they took over and that it can only get better. We are going to be long term customers- I feel like we will get what we pay for when we take our animals to this vet...

Although I like the new owners of Animal Hospital, I did notice that the Vet that I spoke with about Sushi's problem seem to agree with everything that I said and whatever I called the problem he called it that also. I just want his opinion about what is wrong with her and not repeat something that I have just stated. He seems to be concerned about the situation and I am going to give them a chance. I am not sure that I liked them coming in and changing the food without giving the animals a chance to adapt though this may be the way it should be done. I don't know that much about being a Vet though I have had a lot of dealings with them.As far as going back when they are working on the animals,I think we have to trust them to know what they are doing and not insist on going back if we are going to take them there. I think they do charge a little too much and a payment plan would be helpful. They have been very helpful to me as far as carrying my cat in and out for me as I have arthritis.

I have taken my animals to Animal Hospital of Gordon County for years. Although sometimes I've had to wait to pick up, speak to the vet, I have never complained because my animals were treated with love and respect, as was I. Dr. Stancell was loving and caring with my pets. When my corgi Ladybug died he called me crying. He was gentle and kind when my grandmother's 18 year old terrier passed away due to pneumonia. When one of my cats died the staff called to see how I was doing and even sent a card.
Now that Jay and Betsy are owners I have experienced the same kind of love and care I received with Dr. S. The prices may be higher than in other places but I have always felt as if my pets were well treated and well cared for. Today as I take my doxie in for his annual exam and grooming I know I will receive the same type of care and love. I wouldn't consider taking my fur babies anywhere else.

I met with Dr. Jay today, one of the new owners. I was thoroughly impressed with his love for animals, humility, integrity, and his desire to serve the community. I don't know what this vet hospital was like in the past, but this may be the best place in the county to take your pet.

I have used the Animal Hospital of Gordon County for years, and have always been satisfied with the way my dogs have been treated, but the change in ownership is a nice change from how things used to be. The new Drs. Hendley are very personable and seem to truely care about the animals and the owners (and their budget). They saw me each time that I went in for a visit and spoke to me like I truely matter. They saw me and Spanky in a timely manner and are the most wonderful couple I have met in a long time. They have truely won me over!!!

I haven't had experience with this particular location but I have had experience with Dr. Betsy Hendley and I don't have enough good things to say. I first took my lab mix (Moe) to see her when he was only a puppy. She was very attentive to both of us. A year later when he had an allergic reaction to something, she remembered him and played with him for a few minutes and discussed in detail with me how I should care for him at home. Even when I went by to pick up heartworm medication, Dr. Hendley recognized me as "Moe's mom". She's very personable and, in spite of the other reviews I've read, since the Animal Hospital is under new ownership (Drs. Jay and Betsy Hendley), I really think previous customers will be pleasantly surprised.

In December of 2010, the Animal Hospital of Gordon County was sold to myself and my wife (Drs. Jay and Betsy Hendley). We have read the previous reviews and are working hard to provide more one on one time spent with clients/patients as well as giving detailed estimates prior to any surgeries or treatments. We hope to serve your pets for many years to come. 706-625-3300 ahgcvet@gmail.com

I had the same experience as others that posted here. The front desk receptionist is the 'messenger'. I brought 4 dogs here for baths, only baths! I did get charged for exams on two of my dogs, without being notified so that added $80 to my bill! Not sure if these exams were even performed. They could of been performed by the techs? Who knows. You cannot go back in clinic with your dog, like others say STAY AWAY!

PLEASE READ; WOULD NOT ALLOW MY POST UNLESS RATED WORLD CLASS, PLEASE NOTE !!!Was not allowed to go back with sick dog. Parvo was negative. Positive for roundworms. Was TOLD dog had infection in bowel, and ear. Repeatedly requested lab reports to verify the presence of infection and gastro infection. Labs were never given, wanted to see report of white blood cells present. Treatment cost money, & I expected to receive the lab results prior to paying approx. $300 prior to any treatment Never was I shown a lab report. Was told the DR was in Surgery ~ Was also told DR examined my dog. He could not have examined my dog; if he had examined my dog he would have broken sterile field in OR.
Unpleasant staff, Rude. and untrustworthy.
Taking dog to another vet tomorrow.

I have taken all the my dogs to Dr Stancell for 18 years...but for the last couple of years I haven't been happy with the process at this facility. I haven't been able to talk to Dr Stancell for years now. You aren't allowed to go with your dog when treated.All diagnosis and instructions are given to you by one of the girls at the desk. A couple of them seem fairly intelligent. One of them is a stressed out bubble head retard that I do not trust to give me accurate info from the vet.I know Dr Stancell is an excellent Dr but I am currently looking for another vet in this area. Also Dr Stancell has gotten pretty ridiculously high for someone that doesn't take the time to talk to the owners and explain anything to them in person.

Although this clinic graciously worked me in on a Friday afternoon to see my dog's tail injury, I was unpleased with the vet and professionalism of the staff. I waited over an hour for my dog to finally go back. Others in the waiting room told me that was the typical wait time. The lady from the front counter was "the messager." She said my dog had a tail injury (yes, that's why I brought her) and that she needed to stay overnight. When this was questioned, I was told they wanted to do X-ray and needed to give her a muscle relaxer in order to do, but I would be able to pick her up the next morning. Two hours after the promised time the following day, I was able to get my dog. (It took them 15 minutes to locate her collar, which they repeatedly said I didn't bring in). My dog wasn't given an x-ray after all, which made me wonder the need for the overnight stay. They made sure I was charged 2 daily treatments, that's for sure. The vet himself "refused" to speak with me.

Overall, I felt as though this clinic overbooks for the money and doesn't want the hassle of the pets' owners. If you would take a sick child to the doctor, let the nurse take notes from you in the waiting room, send your child back alone, never see the doctor himself, and let the nurse be his messenger, then this is the vet for you.

I have been a client of this Vet and hospital staff for many years, and they are absolutely the best to be found in this area!! I have had routine visits and emergency visits and felt that all possible was being done for my animals-- whether one of my pets, or a stray that i had found and was having treated. The staff are "top notch" in every way possible and i have nothing but praise for each and everyone at this clinic. I only wish that we had more doctors and staffs like this-- my thanks to them all--- mike dobbins

We moved in 2009 and our vet was 3 1/2 hour drive from our new home. This summer when Amber, our toy poodle, fell it was obvious she needed immediate attention. I asked for a referral and was sent to the Animal Hospital of Gordon County. After a quick phone call we jumped in the car and rushed her in.

Upon arrival, prices for the office visit and x-rays were given to us and we agreed to both. Amber had dislocated and fractured her hip. Looking at the x-rays we knew she had to have surgery. A detailed breakdown of the charges were given to us before we agreed to the surgery. Compared to other vet charges, we felt it was appropriate. Because of her age and condition the vets, Dr. Jay and Dr. Betsy stayed after hours to do the surgery. She stayed with them until Monday for monitoring.

She still favors her leg when running but already walks without a limp. They did a great job! The person behind the counter was pleasant and efficient. The vets were caring and compassionate as well as excellent doctors.

I have seen some of the previous reviews and just know they must have occurred before the Hendley doctors bought the facility. I urge everyone to give these great vets achance and not to hold the past against them. This facility is truly Under New Management. Thank you.

Upon arrival, prices for the office visit and x-rays were given to us and we agreed to both. Amber had dislocated and fractured her hip. Looking at the x-rays we knew she had to have surgery. A detailed breakdown of the charges were given to us before we agreed to the surgery. Compared to other vet charges, we felt it was appropriate. Because of her age and condition the vets, Dr. Jay and Dr. Betsy stayed after hours to do the surgery. She stayed with them until Monday for monitoring.

She still favors her leg when running but already walks without a limp. They did a great job! The person behind the counter was pleasant and efficient. The vets were caring and compassionate as well as excellent doctors.

I have seen some of the previous reviews and just know they must have occurred before the Hendley doctors bought the facility. I urge everyone to give these great vets achance and not to hold the past against them. This facility is truly Under New Management. Thank you.

In December of 2010, the Animal Hospital of Gordon County was sold to myself and my wife (Drs. Jay and Betsy Hendley). We have read the previous reviews and are working hard to provide more one on one time spent with clients/patients as well as giving detailed estimates prior to any surgeries or treatments. We hope to serve your pets for many years to come. 706-625-3300 ahgcvet@gmailcom

I called ahead of time to bring my pet in and they said they could work us in. When I got there they were telling people they could not go back with their pets. It sounded strange. Then the receptionist started telling me about keeping my pet overnite which wasn't necessary. She was trying to tell me this clear accross the room full of people. I just thought I would take my pet in to see the vet and then we would discuss treatment. I did not think it was appropriate to discuss this in a room full of people to where she was almost yelling accross the room. I told her that I would discuss this when I saw the vet and I did not think it was appropriate to discuss this in front of everyone in the office which was packed. A lady that worked in the back came out with some papers and said we can not see your pet I will have to refer you to the Emergency after hours clinic. I was baffled they said they could see my pet before I drove all the way to the clinic 15 miles one way. I asked her why they could not see my pet she said they were to busy. I said you should have told me this before I drove all the way to your clinic. Then she said you refused to leave your pet with us overnite. I said I want to make this perfectly clear I never refused to leave my pet at the clinic overnite. She then did not know what to say she mumbled something about sorry we are to busy to see your pet. They did not see my pet because all they care about is making a buck. I did not think it was neccessary to leave my pet overnite but I would have and when I spoke up they did not like it. They are liars. They told me to come and bring my pet and then refused to help my poor pet because they are a bunch of petty unprofessional hicks.

Cons: STAFF LIES CRUEL VET/SNEAKY PRACTICES

So, I had just moved to the area and I took my dog that had gotten attacked to another clinic and they had over charged and made the wounds worse. I took Slater to the Animal Hospital and Dr. Stansell and his awesomely caring staff took the best care of him that I could ever hope for. I would never use any other clinic in Gordon County. They made me feel like I was someone who had been a client for years, even though it was my first time. Without them, I am sure that Slater would have gotten an infection and possibly died. I am eternally grateful to them. \r

We are out of towners with a dog. While we were visting some family in the area our dog got EXTREMELY sick and they recomended Dr. Bruce Stansell. It was a late call and we weren't expecting a call back but his staff called us back promptly. They were more than willing to accomadate us and gave us a since of peace being out of towners. They called us early that morning to let us know that everything was more than okay. We felt so blessed to have a good doctor out of town. Thank you for caring for our dog/child MJ.

I have been a client of this clinic for years and the Doc and his staff aare simply the best to be found in this area. The clinic is small, but the people are caring and professional in every way, and the prices are very reasonable. I have had routine visits and emergency visits and feel that everything possible was done for my animals every time. I have lost a few, but i do not feel it is due to lack of effort, skill, or concern on the part of the Doc and his staff. I would go nowhere else to have my animals cared for--\r
