Forget all you know about this hospital. It is now under new ownership. They now offer advanced surgical procedures, early and late hours (m-f 7am-8pm, sat 7am-3pm), pet boarding with outside exercise area, and walk-ins are always welcome. They have new equipment such as: an anesthetic ventilation machine which breathes for the patient, during surgery - much safer. Surgical monitoring system that measures oxygen levels and heartrate. Latest in dental scaling and polishing which reduces the anesthetic time for a teeth cleaning. If you liked it before, you'll love it now. If you had a bad experience, come back and give oswego animal hospital another try.

Oswego Animal Hospital will be one of the first veterinary hospitals to offer digital imaging in the state. Even before many of the University Teaching Hospitals begin using this new diagnostic tool, there will be a local veterinarian with technology to see inside your pet like never before. This imaging equipment uses less radiation than conventional xrays making it simply safer. The ability to dial in specific soft tissues, internal organs, and bones make it more likely to find a problem sooner than ever. This clinic, previously know for budget veterinary medicine, has been able to significantly increase the level of care with cutting edge technology and keep the prices the same as they were.

We used Oswego Animal Hospital for over a year to care for our two Pugs (routine shots, etc). I was not entirely pleased with the way he ran his business, but he was very convenient to use (location and ease of getting appointments). Dr Benefiel does not provide itemized billing. At the end of your appointment, he simply tells his assistant how much to charge. Charges for services and for medications are not consistent. I was asked to pay twice as much for a medication as I had on a previous purchase. When I inquired about this, the price was reduced to the original amount. He has a very casual attitude about medicine and gives verbal rather than written instructions on medications and post-surgery care. I was never happy with his billing or his ?bedside manner? but the thing that finally drove me away was that he recommended surgery for my dog?s leg (luxated patella), which we let him do in spite of a second vet?s opinion that the surgery was not necessary at that time. Upon returning to ?Dr Dan? after the surgery for an initial checkup, I was told that there was a problem and the surgery would need to be repeated. I was charged a reduced rate for this repeat surgery. On checkup visits after this second surgery I was told everything was going fine (even though the incision was partially open and constantly oozing). After several weeks of this and no improvement, I took my dog to a second vet who took a culture and informed me that the dog had a staph infection. I was given medication to treat the infection (with an itemized bill for the visit, labeling on the medication, and instructions for administering it). I was also told that if the medication did not work, possibly the surgery would need to be redone but this Vet did not do surgical procedures. After several weeks of medication the infection got no better, so we took the dog to a specialist, where the incision was opened, infected tissue was removed, and the original corrective surgery was done right. The infection went from the incision all the way to an internal suture done by Dr Dan. My dog is fine now but suffered through three surgeries and more than five months of discomfort. Dr Dan Benefiel will never see my dogs again.

PROS:
CONS: no itemized billing, inconsistent charges, poor care instructions

This was the second animal hospital I checked out when I moved to the area. Their motto is, "Quality Veterinary Care at Fair Prices", which I suppose it correct. They seem to be about the same as what I was paying at my last vet's office. Dr Benefiel seems to be very interested in prevention of diseases and has many posters and articles in the office regarding outbreaks and household poisons. I have always been able to get an appointment within a day or two, or sooner if need be. I believe they are geared more towards the treatment of dogs than cats as I haven't seen any cats in the waiting area other than my own, and the vet seems more comfortable with dogs. The small waiting room can cause problems with unfriendly dogs, though.

PROS: short wait for appointments
CONS: small waiting area
