Blue Sky is in my opinion the best vet in town. The staff and doctors are amazing and willing to go above and beyond anywhere else I've been. They truly care about my dog and that peace of mind that they provided me with helped me through a very tough time. I recommend this vet to anyone who loves their pet.

Blue Sky is amazing, and I will never take my animals anywhere else as long as we're in Bloomington. My cat Lily had an intense, very expensive treatment in Indy (Radiocat) for a thyroid condition, diagnosed by another local clinic. Even after the treatment, she continued to avoid food, vomit, and lose weight at an alarming rate. The clinic that diagnosed her gave her fluids and a B-12 injection. Over the next week, she continued to deteriorate, and, seriously worried about her imminent safety, I called that clinic in the morning to ask for a doctor--any doctor--to check Lily and administer aid as necessary. Their schedule was full, I was told, and they refused (when asked) to work Lily in. Upset, I said, "I guess I'll have to take her to an emergency hospital." The response was "I guess so." I called Blue Sky, explained the situation, and was told to come right over. They gave Lily fluids, vitamins, and an appetite stimulant, and have been advising me and giving Lily almost daily medical care over the past month. Lily is still not doing very well, but she has a chance she would not have had if Blue Sky had not helped me. Furthermore, they have charged about half of what I had been paying at the other clinic, and some procedures they've even done without charging me anything at all (the very opposite of "price gouging"). Calling Dr. Gaudreau a "moron" is an outrage. He is a very caring, knowledgable professional, as is everyone I've dealt with at Blue Sky. The clinic isn't upscale (the one I left is and I was apparently paying double for the decor), but the care is top-flight and people there actually CARE about the well-being of your animal.

Update (about three months later): Lily is doing great--you'd never know she was ever sick. She's regained most of her weight (7-1/2 lbs. now, from 4 lbs. at the lowest point) and is back to playing laser tag, drinking from the sink faucet, and purring like a very happy cat. I credit Blue Sky.

I brought my puppy in for her first round of shots and a general checkup. After looking at the white spots on my black and tan coonhound, the head vet remarked that he "wasn't worried, that's just her white fur coming in." A week later, and her skin infection has now spread over most of her body. She's not growing hair at all, she's losing it. I'm so frustrated that I took this idiot's advice and now I have to find a new vet to throw more $$$ at cause this moron messed up.

Blue Sky's office practices, particularly their policy of not providing patients with prescriptions in order to buy their pet medications online, is flagrant price-gouging. This policy forces all pet owners who bring their pets to Blue Sky to buy their pet medications from Blue Sky ONLY, and at an enormous markup. For example, Blue Sky charges $20 per dose for Comfortis, a flea and tick preventative. This is over 33% more expensive than the 1800PetMeds price.

Blue Sky makes absolutely no mention of this in their intake paperwork, nor when they actually recommend the medication. Furthermore, this a direct violation of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation's Code of Ethics Article III, Section C, Clause 1, which states that "[v]eterinarians should honor a clients request for a prescription in lieu of [selling the medication directly to the client]." http://www.avma.org/is...

As a result, I am required to take my pet to another veterinarian and incur significant expense to go through yet another initial consultation in order to obtain a prescription for a medication every pet requires. As an organization that prides itself on being a family business, Blue Sky should be ashamed of itself for blatantly violating its own profession's code of ethics and squeezing their clients for every penny they can get. I would not recommend Blue Sky under any circumstance and intend to warn other pet owners about its practices.

I've been taking my animals to Blue Sky for almost 20 years. While like many others, I miss Michael dearly since his passing, the clinic has continued to provide excellent care to my cat. I feel I can trust Lynne's judgment completely. I have to spend much of my time overseas, and this makes it all the more important that I have care for my cat that I can depend upon. I really can't imagine seeking vet care anywhere else.

The late Dr. Michael List and his staff provided the highest care for our seven cats and our dog over the years. When he passed away in 2005, we were concerned about veterinary care for our animals (who are cherished family members to us and not merely "pets"). Not only were we upset at losing Dr. List, but at the potential loss of the extremely helpful staff that we had come to know and trust over the years. We visited another clinic in town and were extremely dissatisfied with the treatment of our animals there, so we waited patiently for Blue Sky to regroup.

Lynne, Ann, Dr. Gaudreau, and the rest of the staff have provided exemplary care to our furry hoard over the years and I hope they will continue to do so for many more. This is not the kind of clinic that caters to fussy hand-wringers or those who want a pretty waiting room with piped-in music and comfy chirs, but they will teach you how to care for your pet, from advice about behavioral problems, to diet, to instruction on how to administer medication via pill, liquid, or injection. Top notch care without needless expense. They've never steered us wrong.

Our cat (Lili) had a bad reaction to a shot at Blue Sky. We would call them consistently reporting her behavior and they kept assuring us that her behavior was normal for cats who recently had shots. They gave us behaviors to look out for (e.g. vomitting) that she did not have. They made us feel silly and over protective for worrying so much. Our cat continued to look lethargic and she barely ate or drank. We decided to take her to the ER anyway, and it was there that she passed away. The reported reason was "stress" from being in a car and in a vet clinic in the weak condition she was in. We were extremely distraught and still miss our cat dearly.
