If you care about your animal do NOT go to this vet. I am a long term client who has recently been made aware of the way this practice runs behind closed doors. Before anyone says that my info came from a bitter employee who was fired, I will have you know that it was provided by a long term employee who left upon their own decision. Besides the fact that a simple $40 office visit always turns into a minimum couple hundred dollar visit, I never really had a problem here. Then my dog had an issue that requires surgery and this is where my opinion of the place completely changed. First off my surgery that was supposed to be around $700 ended up being a few thousand. Secondly my pet had to stay in the hospital for triple the expected recovery time. I was told by the dr that it was to ensure the pet recovered/healed properly. After my boy was finally able to come home, I spent several hundred more dollars on follow up appointments because somethig just wasn't right. The doctor kept saying it was normal for my pet I be experiencing the problems he was having after surgery but could never give me an explanation as to why. Come to find out, this is basically a Frankenstein doctor who has no idea what he is doing and plays operation on our pets. I was told that my pet was basically butchered and put back together and that the improper things that were done is probably the reason why he never healed correctly. I can't give to much information here because I have filed a complaint with the LBVM and do not want to hurt my case or for the vet to tamper with files if he finds out who I am. I will say that the Ido given to me is from a very reliable source. I also found out that the vet sexually harasses his employees, marks up prices for wealthier clients who "can afford it" and has a few other illegal ways of doing things. I feel sorry for all of the people working around him and will say that I have never had a bad experience with any of his employees. I just wish that someone had informed me sooner of what he is doing to animals behind closed doors. TAKE YOUR PETS SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT NOT TO DR MILAZO

I get why people are so upset that this vet has so many negative reviews. Maybe I can put it in to perspective for everyone because I used to work here for about a year. Dr Blust is amazing. Nothing to say about him. Dr Milazo on the other hand is a cruel, vial, and evil human being to animals and people alike. He is constantly degrading the workers there and always trying to hit on them, not to mention the vulgar names he has called myself and the other ladies there. Now for the animals: if you have a cat I highly suggest taking it somewhere else. NO MATTER what the procedure is he DOES NOT put them under anesthesia, he only sedates them. What does this mean? THEY CAN FEEL EVERYTHING! Try to imagine that pain! When he sutures up a dog or a cat he does not use string that is dissolvable because it costs too much. I have seen him use fishing wire before! He only cares about making money. He could care less about the care of your pet. This is just the tip of the ice burg but I do not have enough room to explain everything. These are the things that I feel needed to be told.

Average service. Vet was fairly friendly. Staff performed their duties with basic customer service skills. Nothing exceptional and nothing specific to complain about. Services were for yearly check up.

I cannot believe the negative reviews for this vet because I just left the office, and had such a great experience! The Vet spent so much time explaining procedures, getting to know my dogs, and breaking down prices for me; I was amazed! I just moved here from out of state, and this vet is not even a quarter of the price of my last. He was very up front about cost, and was extremely honest and open. He made me feel like we'd been friends for years! They were all so sweet to my dogs, and the receptionist gave me so muh time and information! I love it!

I haven't taken my dog to the vet in a few years, so I was a little worried about receiving criticism from the employees. I was relieved to find that there was none. They were happy that I was there & that I was getting my dog the vaccinations & the grooming that she needed. The vet & his assistant were very friendly to my dog & the vet talked to me for a long time to discuss the further treatment that my dog will need to get rid of her heartworms. I had a great experience & will be back in 2 weeks!

People like to complain - not so keen on compliment. It's a shame that people are really eager to write a negative review when service has been off - but not so much when service has been good because reading these reviews might put you off of a fantastic vet.

We have a HERD of pets. Lots of them and each of them have their own bizarre personality and we've had more than our fair share of tough requests and needs for our furry kids. Dr Blust and his staff are stellar - they're quick to accommodate and eager to make sure our pets are happy and healthy. The staff at Gause Blvd Vet are actually ANIMAL LOVERS - you can tell by their interactions and the time they spend with your pets.

The front desk staff is knowledgeable and when they're not sure of something, they're quick to research and get back to you. ALWAYS friendly and understanding I actually don't mind calling in and asking for help.

The nursing and support staff is compassionate, professional and FAST. This is a well oiled team and they know exactly what they're doing.

Unfortunately, I can only speak about Dr Blust, but we've found him not only competent but very good with all the varieties of our animals. He was even quick and honest with a referral to another vet (not affiliated with this clinic) when a situation arose that he felt was beyond his personal experience. It says a lot about a doctor when they're able to set aside their own ego and say "Go see this other guy, he's specializes in this". Honesty is as important as skill and this guy has both.

Do not hesitate to do business with this team - there's a reason they've got the largest patient base in the area, they're the best.

I boarded by dog during my vacation and he was suppose to let him out 2 times and 2 play times for the weekend. He was suppose to cut his nails and give him a bath. WHen I picked him up the poor thing had pee all over him and didn't have his nails cut. I had to pay before he was brought out. He is a rip off and I would not recommend him.

Prior to this I brough a dog I rescued to him for surgery on his rear hiphe wanted $2,400.00 to fix his leg. I brought him to a vet in Metairie and cost me $200.00. DO NOT USE THIS VET.

I have been bringing my puppy to these people for about a year now, and she was due for her heart worm pills, I really like using 1800 petmeds, so I placed my order. They denied it, so I called over there, and the receptionist told me they don't faxed scrips over the fax, you have to come in and pick it up for a five dollar charge!!! I was mad, b/c no vet has ever denied a heart-worm script for my dogs in the past. So I sent my husband one weekday to get the script, The vet argued with my husband, questioning the care we are giving to our dogs, and told my husband he doesn't want to give us a script b/c we are not getting them from him!!! That is illegal!! That is like you going to your orthopedic doctor, needing a brace for your leg, and the doctor not writing you the script, b/c your not buying it from him. After 15 minutes of arguing, he finally wrote the script, but when i read the script when I got home that evening he wrote it for the most expensive pills in the market. I am beyond angry, I am reporting them to the state attorney. You can do that thru 1800petmeds.com. I am now looking for a new vet, in Slidell, I want one i can trust, and will allow me to order over the Internet. If anyone has suggestions, email me at kadeelove07@yahoo.com

I agree with the other reviews--avoid this veterinarian. They are completely about the money; for example, they charge $12.50 for insulin injections even when you bring your own insulin and syringes! I boarded my cat for two days for a urine culture and because she pees outside their normal operating hours, he could never pull a clean catch from her. And when she peed in her cage, they didn't even attempt a urinalysis (even though it does not require a clean catch) to see if a full-blown culture was even necessary. They also have a very nasty receptionist who has no concept of customer service and treating people with respect. After being out of the area for a year, the one thing that kept entering my mind was how much I dreaded having to resume my visits to this vet. However, they finally pushed me to the end of my rope today and I'm taking my business elsewhere. I don't suppose there's a support group in place for former clients of this business?

They've roped me in from their, "Puppy Package" deal. But I've quickly learnt that "deals" aren't always the best for both me and my dog. First off, my dog has a tendency of being a bit testy when it comes to vet visits. With each visit, I ALWAYS had to explain to them that my dog acts aggressively out of fear. If they will make it seem like a game, or playtime for him he wouldn't be a problem during the exam. But they would never listen to me. Just slapped on the muzzle and fight with my dog through the whole exam. Finally I gave in and begun requesting to have my dog sedated during exams. Again would not due. After several visits to Gause Blvd Vet Hospital, it came down to both vets treating my dog in such a manner a Vet should not to. I mean these two who dare call themselves Vets begun hitting and slamming my dog down on the table whenever he would throw his fit. True, my dog is a "Will Bite" case, but in true honesty it mostly stems from they way he is being treated. After taking my dog to another Vet, I fine he is more at ease during exams.

This vet will overcharge and lie to get max money out of clients. First visit for my dog's Cherry Eye surgery consultation resulted in a $600+ quote from Dr Blust. I had it done elsewhere for $150. Second visit was for emergency situation where my bulldog was choking. He had passed out and turned blue and Gause Blvd Vet was only vet open on Sunday and close to my home. I rushed him in and was told again by money man Dr Blust that he needed to sedate him, do x-rays, check airway, etc..and keep him for observation for two days. Fine I thought. He came back in with a $800 bill and insisted that I pay in full immediately (before the first instance of treatment). I asked if I could pay on Tuesday as this was my next payday. He brought up the Cherry Eye quote that he gave me which I never followed thru on as if I was somehow untrustworthy since I went out and found a better price. My dog was a few feet away choking to death and this horrible, uncaring, unprofessional vet hounded me about producing $800 on the spot before he would act on my dog's behalf. I took my dog and promptly left and found another, more reasonable emergency vet.

Bad form Gause Boulevard Veterinary Hospital!! I will share my experience with anyone who will listen!

I brought my animals to this vets office and have spend alot of money there!! and also people that bought my puppies have returned them to this vet!
I found that they are really more concerned over the money then the treatment of the animal.one of my pups got kennel cough and was taken into this hospital and given meds.I phoned pet meds on the net to get the other pups discounted meds,even thou the vet had seen the the dogs before he refused to allow me to get the needed meds without each a visit and had the nerve to say I could pick up the prescriptions for 5 dollars each and the high cost of him filling them! I had a new puppy get parvo and was quickly told it was cash or credit card up front!! the pup died!

I found another vet in the area who is willing to work out payments and works with pet meds over the net to help out the animals owners...Gause vet is also much more high priced then the ones I have now found!

Avoid Dr. Milazzo. In my opinion, He only cares about how much money he can get out of a person. And he doesn't diagnosis the animal's problem properly. Such as when I brought my puppy in to his office cause he was sick and too young yet to get his shots, Milazzo claimed he had a cold and charged me over $100 for medicine. The dog didn't get better the second time I brought him in and he gave the puppy his shots and said it still a cold. The puppy had a seizure and I brought him to another vet and he IMMEDIATELY diagnosed the puppy as having distemper and the puppy had to be put to sleep. Had a proper diagnosis been given in the beginning the puppy might have lived. Even having been a client of his I heard him talk about his other clients and he referred to them according to how much he could get out of them. I dont believe he has a regard for the animal's life. He seems to be more concerned with how much he can make than whether he can save the animal or help it.
