Dr. Riddick at Benning Animal Hospital is knowledgeable and caring and understands that our four legged family members occupy a huge part of our hearts. Her advice and care for my furry family members has always been top notch. I highly recommend Dr. Riddick as one of those special Veterinarians with a passion for her patients.

We have been taking our lovable chocolate lab to Benning Animal since she was 6weeks and cannot imagine going anywhere else. The staff and doctors are terrific. They always provide professional and loving care with decent prices. We also use Pampered Pets boarding and Ms. Penny is wonderful - we wouldn't feel comfortable leaving our dog anywhere else. She gets lots of attention and great care while she stays with them. Thank you to the staff and doctors for making our visits, whether medical or boarding, all about our precious dog!

I have been going to Benning Animal Hospital for about 6 yrs now and love them. They have always been wonderful with all of my animals be it just routine shots or some type of emergency. Dr. Riddick and Dr. Harris have always done everything they can to help with whatever might be wrong with my babies. They go over and above to make sure your pets are taken care of. We had a 10 1/2 y old dog that became very ill and they did everything they could to make sure he was comfortable while we figured out what was wrong. They went over and above to help our baby. We were able to get another few weeks with him and then when he did finally pass they were very helpful in setting up all the arangements for our baby to be cremated. All of the staff are awesome and I highly recommend them.

I have three cats, and there's no place better for their care than Benning Animal Hospital. The staff is caring, trained, compassionate, well-educated, and friendly. They explain what my kitties need (or might need) and help me make good decisions within my budget. Veterinary care can be confusing - these folks make it easy on me and they love my cats like their own.

I can say have been going to Benning Animal Hospital for 2 years now & I have always had a great experience there. The Doctors & staff are always attentive and respectful. I have always seen a sense of urgency to the patients when needed, and I feel like my issues/needs are always important to them. It's obvious that Dr. Riddick has had emergency/specialty experience because she is always focused & in control when the situation calls for it. They have invested in a great staff & there is always a positive energy there an it's obvious they all enjoy what they do. I appreciate the fact that they can offer laser treatment, dental x-ray & lab diagnostics to aid them in the best care available for animals. There is always a feeling of respect & concern for people and their animals & I would recommend this clinic to anyone who wants the best care for their animal at a great value.

Benning Animal Hospital has been taking care of my rescued dog family for over 10 years. Some of our dogs have special needs to include one that is blind and one that has a heart condition. I would highly recommend them to take care of

The same vet that saved our German Shepherd from parvo approximately 15 years ago is still there and caring for our 2 boxers! Our girls are also boarded at their Pampered Pets facility connected by a hallway. The girls that run Pampered Pets are there because they love the pets and wouldn't be anywhere else...you can just tell! I LOVE having all of my pets needs taken care of under one roof! Dr. Riddick couldn't be more personable and vested in her clients either! I just can't say enough good things about this place! Give them a shot, you will very quickly see that the emphasis is on your pet!

I don't know what I'd do without Benning Animal Hospital! If you want a safe, fun and and happy environment for your pet, this is where you want to be. My puppy goes almost every day and is spoiled rotten. I recommend them to everyone.

Benning Animal Hospital was recommended by our neighbor when we moved to Columbus in 2007. Since then, our 10 year old Labrador Retriever has received the best possible care from doctors and staff that seem to love her almost as much as we do.

When she developed a skin irritation from a topical flea & tick prevention medicine last summer, Doctors Harris and Riddick researched the problem and worked with Oakley almost daily for 6 months. We believe that their excellent care and ability to provide laser therapy kept our precious girl from having permanent hair loss and scarring.

Pampered Pets Boarding is Oakley's home-away-from-home. The staff gives her a loving and safe place to visit when we need to leave her for a few hours or a few days. We know that she loves her time there because she is happy and excited to see the staff whenever we take her there. When we have to leave her overnight, she has a private room and we are allowed to bring her own bed, blanket, toys and treats.

In a few weeks, we are being transferred to the Atlanta area but we will not be looking for another Vet. It will be well worth the drive to continue to bring Oakley to Benning Animal Hospital for her annual exams and for boarding.

Our chihuahua 'Itty-Bit' had a double hernia that needed surgery. Dr. Riddick was so sweet with her, she knew right away what all needed to be done, she explained every part of the procedure ahead of time, and she even gave her something to calm her down and let us stay and love her until she was comfortable (to make seperation easier) before surgery. When we left our baby right before the surgery, she was comfortable and at ease, which made it much easier on our family. When we picked her up the next morning, she was happy to see us, and she didn't act distressed over the situation. She has never been boarded, so this was a very tense time for us, but Dr. Riddick calmed our anxieties as much as Itty-Bit's. Her care and concern go beyond the pet. A couple of months later we were back with our other chihuahua 'Tigger' with some unusual knots on her stomach that Dr. Riddick said had the appearance of a particular type of mammory tumor, but before we could even get concerned about the possibility of tumors, she said "I just want to get a better look at this, is it ok if I take a little fluid out of them and look at it under the microscope before we do anything else?" Before she jumped into an expensive surgery, she drew fluid, looked at it herself, and sent it to a lab to double check her own findings, and they were not tumors. There was nothing to worry about, and she calmed my nerves before I even had a chance to get upset. She gave me the option to remove the knots if I wanted to, but it wasn't necessary, just cosmetic. She loves her 'people' clients, as well as, her 'pet' clients. Anyone who meets Dr. Riddick can tell how much she loves animals. It is quite obvious that veterinarian medicine is not her job, it is her life.

I highly recommend Dr. Riddick, she provided both boarding services and medical care for my little dog in the Birmingham area. I was sorry to hear she was moving to the Benning Animal Hospital in Columbus and want to let her know how much

If you are looking for a great veterinarian (Auburn Grad) you will find Dr. Riddick to be highly skilled and one who cares about the pets and their owners. I visited the 24 hour Emergency Center where she worked several times and she provided both boarding for my little dog "Baron" as well as medical services at the Clay-Chalkville Veterinary Center. We were all sorry to have her move to Georgia to practice at the Benning Animal Hospital. My dauchshund received the best service I believe possible from Dr. Riddick. Georgia is lucky to have such a skilled veterinarian.

Hi!

I'm one of the new owners of Benning Animal Hospital, as profiled on NBC's 'Rise and Shine' last week. Dr. Keri Riddick is new to our staff from birmingham, where she is recognized for her expertise in emergency medicine, small animal practice, and exotics such as pot-bellied pigs and goats.

I'd like to respond to a couple of the posts here with our new changes to the clinic. Even though Benning Animal hospital has been a part of Columbus since 1950, we are becoming better all the time!

Alma and Amy- Dr. Reed, now known as Dr Harris, is still with us and will be for at least 5 more years (retirement). We don't provide livestock or "large animal" services other than large dogs or pot-bellied pigs, but focus on small animals, pocket pets, and exotics such as reptiles. Your comments are right on regarding livestock, which is why we no longer practice in that area. Dr. Riddick, our new vet, has been highly praised for her emergency work, and we hope you'll give her a chance! We have changed pricing to provide more affordable healthcare, but still quality services for our clients and their animal companions.

Kelly - Thank you for the review. If you really liked Dr. Harris as you post suggests, could you change your rating from 1 * to 4 or 5?

If you have any other concerns, I'd love to speak with you at 706-689-6240.

-Don Riddick

Dr. Harris is a very talented doctor. I used to work for her about 6 years ago. I have worked at other hospitals in Maryland, and her hospital was one of the best hospitals I have ever worked at. I really miss her and Ms. Little. Love ya always kelly egitto.

This is a good place to recieve care for large animals and livestock. Dr. Reed is kind and caring, but her staff is lacking in this area. Although they are proficient in treatment knowledge, there is a lack of communication between the back and the front personel. I wouldn't reccomend using this vet in an emergency situation, and the prices can run on the high side.

I used this vet for many years, and under normal circumstances they are pretty good. But one time during an emergency, I could not get them to help, even after about eight years of taking my pets to them. I have since changed vets, but if it is not an emergency situation then you can take your pets to them. They specialize in large animals.
