    I would not recommand this animal hosiptal or at least Dr.McAfee.She has the worst bedside manner EVER!My dog was going in for labor breathing and she had a hard time walking.I explain that my dog had recently gotten diaherra and was on medicine.Well over night from getting the medicine my dog crashed could not walk breathing funny.Dr.McAfee wanted do this test that test telling me she had a real hard time hearing my dogs heartbeat then saying lyme disease.Granted that this is the first time she seen my dog my vet was closed that day,but hell i waited it out took my dog to my vet first thing in the morning he added 1 i dose of antiboltic and over night she acted funny.Anyways for what Dr.Mcafee wanted to charge me somewheres in the 500.00 dollars.My dog by 10pm that night was back to normal.I have not touch on the doctor's bedside manner was the worst she was short when answering a question and no compassion.50.00 they charged me for nothing!

    I think the staff give themselves too much credit, I call to talk to the Dr. and they say well is there something i can help you with? So I play along let them try to help solve my problem and received bad advice from the staff and my pet suffered over a thousand dollars of injuries that I now had to pay a specialist. If the girl who answered would of just given the Dr, my message this may never happened.

    I was just there and had to walk out I had been waiting so long come to find out the girl that was supposed to be waiting on me was on the phone with her husband! I heard her talking about her mother being retarded (her words not mine) and one of the other girls who did not attempt to help me was texting and speaking Ebonics the whole time. C'mon girls not in the work place!!!

    The manager Dorothy is never there, I was told she went to the bank and would be back in a few minutes, where is this bank I waited around for almost 2 hours!!! While I was waiting I heard a lot of things that I did not think was appropriate for an animal hospital. One of he staff members I believe her name was Rachel admitted she hated cats and that boxers were the dumbest dogs she couldn't stand them either. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING IN AN ANIMAL HOSPITAL FOR??? I heard one of the girls discussing a sex toy party and saying she was going to bring some in for the Doctor to try out. They seem to think this is the kind of conversation that should take place in a workplace. I got so disgusted with all of the remarks I walked out! I will never return.

    I have been there before and have heard many racist remarks and jokes about living in Joliet. I even heard one of the girls pronounce it as Joilet like toilet as If it were some kind of joke. I think it is very rude to say things like that knowing that the customers you are dealing with are from Joliet. I wish there was more we could do to stop the racist behavior than righting a bad review. I sware it was as if she talks like that all of the time it did not seem to get a reaction out of anyone there including her boss who was sitting right there. This place is a sess-pool!

    I do like some of the staff but the majority of them are very obviously animal MURDERERS!!! I have overheard many times someone say "well, put it to sleep" or one time I even heard the manager say "I dont care how old your kitten is, if it was mine and urinated outside of it's litter box I would kill it"! I was appalled, and never returned!

    I stopped here looking for a kitten to adopt, and with the persuasion of a staff member, I left with one the same day. I believe I paid $65 for him. The staff was very friendly and the place seemed to be very clean. The only thing I didn't like were the prices for all the visits and shots. I believe I paid more than I was quoted the day I bought the kitten.

    I took my cat here a few years ago because she was sick and for some reason they wanted to operate on her. I refused and took her to another animal hospital and it turned out she only had worms! I never went back.

    The staff has always been nice and professional. I like most that they adopt out cats and kittens. The hospital is very clean and the staff is very helpful.
