I have mixed reviews - I have taken my cats and dogs to them for years. I feel that they didn't manage my cat's hyperthyroid very well and didn't help much at all with a peeing issue. During her last dying days - I wanted to feed her anything she would eat - including rotisserie chicken. They said it was a bad idea that she needed to eat cat food with perhaps some chicken broth in it. She refused, but would eat straight chicken which I fed to her. They are high priced and of course want to clean my pet's teeth yearly at $200 per pet. When I took my new dog who had loose stools - they didn't really question much and sent me home with an antibiotic. A local pet store spoke with me more and discovered that my dog loved rawhides and that this could be contributing to it and recommended a different chew and to add a teaspoon of pumpkin puree to her food for a week. Cleared up the problem right away! I didn't even give the antibiotics. I prefer home remedies to drugs if that can be avoided. I especially don't want to over use antibiotics.
Now they insist that I purchase my Heartguarde from them and not 1800PetMeds - claiming that they are a scam and selling fakes.
Not sure where to switch to but am increasingly dissatisfied...
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr Bressman and Lenox Pet Hospital. We have been taking our lab since she was born in 2001 and over the course of 9 years have NEVER had anything but a perfect experience - Dr B is so smart, personable and truly shows that he cares about our dog. The staff has been the same over the 9 years which says so much about working w/Dr B and they too are wonderful! I have never been to a better vet!
Lenox Pet Hosp. Today, my daughter brought her Pug puppy to Lenox Pet hosp to have him neutered. The Vet called an hour later to say the dog was dead. He tried to say that the dog may have had an infection in the sac surrounding the heart but I don't believe him. I firmly believe he made a mistake and could not admit to it. A few months ago I had brought my own puppy there because he had this curious white growth on his tongue. The same Vet said that he did not know what this growth was but he felt that it should be removed immediately by laser surgery. The Vet said my dog will lose a small part of his tongue but it was better than risking further growth of this unknown disease. WELL, I went to the Humane society clinic for a second opinion and they said it was a form of canine papilloma that is highly contagious with puppies and would simply go away within three months and sure enough it did. I feel this Vet should be run out of Buckhead.
I worked with Dr. Bressman for several years before moving away from the Atlanta area and during that time, he saw all my animals (and there were quite a few), the cats and dogs to the turtle and the rodents--he compassinately and expertly handled all of their troubles. He was--and I assume still is--a great guy and wonderful to work with.
Dr. Bressman and his staff are a delight to work with. My cat had an abscess and was unable to be seen by my regular vet: Dr. Bressman's office not only fit me in on short notice, but were wonderful in assuaging the worries of this neurotic pet owner--and Biskie is good as new!
I have been taking my dogs to Dr. Bressman at Lenox Pet Hospital for 13 years. They get professional, compassionate care and have been kept healthy and happy by the great team at Lenox. When I had to euthanize one of my babies who was dying, they came out to the car so she wouldn't have to be afraid. I always know if something is wrong, they will fix it. I wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else.
