I called for a new patient appointment and the receptionist was rude and demeaning. Not at all helpful. Don't bother to call and ask about prices. I guess they wait til they have you there to and over a barrel to reveal what the cost will be. I'm going to go elsewhere. Lost a new customer here.

Just came back from AAH. Unfortunately there was not much that could be done. The Dr. told me right out she probably could not fix the problem and gave me choices other than to spend $$$$$. I was charged what I think was more than fair price. Everyone, including the people at the front desk really seemed to care and both said "sorry" as if they really meant it. I will definately go back and reccomend them highly.

I've been a client for many years and have always been happy with the Vets until now. it appears they have hired new Vet's that don't know what they are doing, poor care and rude, it's bad enough the front desk staff lacks personal skills now they are hiring Vets with poor people skills not good!.....

Dr. Curtin and his staff are truly AMAZING!!! I didn't realize when I came back from FL after 7 years I brought my sick Rotti to Brockton Animal Hospital...$1500 and not doing any better on all this medicine I called Dr. Curtin for a second opinion. I was told to bring Pudge in the next day. Then about 3 years later Pudge surprisingly had something wrong with his hips and couldn't walk! Dr. Curtin kept him there for a week and let us go visit him and we made the difficult decision to put him down. The staff stayed with him and sent us a card and helped us find the staff in Middleboro to bury him. Dr. Curtin offered us another puppy but we waited about four months and got another rotti from a breeder that uses Dr. Curtin. Now we have Roxy a female rotti and the staff there is still helpful. they are VERY busy but that is because he is a GREAT vet and if you go to the BEST vet you should expect to wait for a little bit for great care for your beloved pets!

I've been going to Abington Animal for over 10 years. Dr. Curtin and all his staff are wonderful. We lost our beloved dog Luke in April 2010, the staff were wonderful. We go to take him home for 2 weeks after he was diagnosed with cancer. Dr Curtin gave his cell phone # to us and told us that if we needed him on the weekend to give him a call. What vet does that these days. Also he is fair with his prices. Thank you to all the staff at Abington Animal Hospital! You guys are the best!

I have been going to the Abington Animal Hopsital for over 15 years. Our cats and our family dog all have been treated.
Our cat once got hit by a car and was in a cast. They were so kind to us in our time of need. They did not overcharge us like the other chain animal hositals would have.
When our family dog got sick, they made us so comfortable. They let us in the back and gave us all the time we needed after she passed.
I am forever thankful for their support and affection they have given us over the years.

I would and I do recommend everyone to Abington Animal Hospital.

Here's the deal. I have been going here for over 15 years. Never once have I had a bad experience, with the 6 dogs that I have had in that time span. All spayed and neutered by dr curtain. All medical care to them. They were ALWAYS compassionate, and I have never once had an issue. I would say they are undoubtedly absolutely amazing- the best. A couple of reasons (and these are just two of the many)

1. Dr. Curtain came to my house when my Shepard was ill and needed to be put down from doggy MS, so that my poor baby's last memory wasn't in a scary vets office (no dogs like the vet- just driving in the parking lot made her nervous). Who does that??????? No other vet I know. He is so kind. She was able to die peacefully in her bed at home, where she was completely comfortable and most happy; and was able do die with dignity, not struggling on a cold metal table in a vets office. I will never forget that act of generosity.

2. My Chihuahua was under 3lbs when she went in to be spayed. Knowing the complications that could ensue, they were extra careful with her, and were sensitive about the risk and always communicated this to me. I was beyond frightened. They finished her in the morning first before any other animal because of the concern. I was able to take her home that day. Stitches (as with all other procedures with my animals) were perfect. Again, many other vets would not have taken so much care and consideration..

If you don't like them, send your pet somewhere else- that is your right. If there really was an issue and it is hurtful and was harmful to your pet, certainly go to another vet. Mistakes do happen, no matter where you go, and perhaps by bad luck, you or your baby may have been the brunt of a mistake. Trust me, this is not the first establishment where stitches were not completely done correctly, appointments messed up, catching the front desk on a bad day, etc.

If you are looking for syrupy sweet fake front desk people that talk about you the minute you leave, only to charge you double for the same work, than go to another hospital. Trust me, it will probably not affect this establishment- they can't even take new patients!! That is how full they are as an office. Must be a really bad practice with all of those devoted followers...

I will always bring my dogs here. Hats off to dr. Curtain for his kind, caring and gentle ways with my dogs. And in regards to the front desk girls- they have always been nothing but courteous and respectful. Where it counts, Abington Animal hospital delivers.

I have been going to Abington Animal Hospital for 8 years now after starting out at a diferent vet, whom I left because of the poor care and bedside manner towards my Lab. One of my friends had recommended Dr Curtin and I decided to give him a try. From the beginning; I have never had any problems whats so ever. Yes, the wait can be long sometimes, but you have to remember that it's not only a clinic; it's a hospital and if there's an emergency that comes in; to me it's worth the wait as I put myself in the other persons position. If I had an emergency with my dog, I would expect them to treat my dog with priority.
Yes the front desk is not the friendliest, However; I'm not there to make friends, I'm there for my dog to get treatment from Dr. Curtin. Dr. Curtin and Dr. Anna have treated my Lab with the best bedside manner and care I could ever wish for.
Great Job Dr. Curtin and Dr. Anna!!

i cant belive all those people didnt like it! i dont know if we are talking about the same place, but the one im talking about is the best place i know.there prices are so low and you can afford to take your animal there. they also give alot of help and acctually talk to you about the problem. the secretary are very nice too. the other places i have brought my cat to are very expensive, they dont tell you anything and they arent very considerate to your pet.
even though this place isnt open every day 24 hours it is very convenient and doesnt charge alot.

and for boarding we always bring my cat there because it is wicked cheap and she is separated from the other animals at all times. they even let the animals out sometimes. the only

down of this place is that they are very close to an intersection and arent near any open areas for the animals to walk around.

they even take in strays sometimes. but they almost always have kittens or puppies fro sale.

this is the vet for an average person who doesnt like to pamper their animal with nonsense and spend more money when you dont need to.

they might not be as nice and considerate but if they spend their whole day around sick animals dont you think that they are going to be a little bit more professional than " oh look at that poor puppy he needs to be fixed right away."

Okay. SO the front desk staff isn't warm and fuzzy. Aren't we all there for our animals to see the vet? And when you walk into a doctor's office, don't you go up to the desk to check in? Why should it be different at a vet's office?
My dogs,guinea pigs, etc. have all received rasonable, caring and compassionate healthcare from this office. The doc is the bottom line and there are no problems with the doc!

I have a Belgian Malinois that was born with a hernia. Hanna was taken to the Abington Animal Hospital, by the breeder, and thus introducing me to Dr. Jack Curtin, Jack was nothing but professional, mindful and caring.

I scheduled a post-op visit for Hanna, as I was concern, and she was seen by a vet tech that demonstrated similar characteristics. Upon leaving, I wasn??t charged for the office visit and was charged cents for medication. If that isn??t the definition of healer (doctor), I am not sure what is!

My primary concern is that my lil girl be kept safe and receives the best veterinary care possible.

As far as their front-desk, I haven??t been treated unprofessionally, a lil chilly, perhaps. I can see why they would be perceived as being less than friendly. If they started treating my lil 70 lb mal, I??d think twice or I??d have Hanna rip them a new one. ;)

Also, I currently have arranged for her wellness visit, and annual shots. I anticipate smooth sailings. Keep ya posted!

I have been going to AAH for years; I drive an hour to get there and I want you to know that Dr Curtin, Dr Lauren, Dr Anna, Dr Melissa and their staff are the VERY BEST!!! I went there with a very sick dog yesterday and they were all very compassionate to both me and the dog. He ended up having surgery and they all jumped in to help him. I can't THANK YOU all enough for all you do!! Yes you wait when you have an appointment; as we do for our primary care doctors, so what, the care that your pet gets is above and beyond! Every vet there is outstanding, as are the vet techs!!! Thank you again AAH

4+ stars for the care that my dog received over the years. We purchased our lab from Dr. Curtin 12 years ago, and we've received nothing but the best care from this practice. Most recently we have seen Dr. Anna - she is amazing. Spot on with her care and compassion for the pet and owner. My brother in law is a vet, and my sister is a vet tech, so I consult them both, and they have always agreed with what Dr. Anna and Dr. Curtin have said.

I whole heartedly agree that some of the front desk staff are less than polite. That said, I think it has gotten better than years past, so maybe they are trying to work on this. I too have had trouble getting them to answer the phone, and have had to wait for a long time. On the flip side, when my dog was sick, they were able to accomodate me with an appt.

The waiting area isn't the cleanest (to say the least). But Abington is better than the TWO other vets that I had been to since I've moved out of the immediate area, which is why I continued to drive 45 minutes to bring my dog here.

I had to bring my dog in to be euthenized 6 monthes ago, and I was received with MUCH compassion by the front desk staff, I didn't have to wait long, and we were able to spend as much time as we wanted to with our pet. I will return to Abington animal hospital when we get our new puppy!

I am sorry that some people complain that they had such a long wait. I have also waited. Did it ever accure to them the wait was long because the vets are doing a thorough job in taking care of our pets. I have seen how thorough they are and how caring and sympathetic they are there. I have been going there for over 25 yrs. I tried other vets and went right back to Abington. I recently had to put my Lab down (she was very old) the staff was very sympathetic and helped me through the whole ordeal. They also helped my dad when he had to put his (capanion) cat down. They even offered to get my dad another cat when he's ready. My dads ready now and when we get that cat it will be treated and cared for by the doctor and his staff at the Abington Animal Hospital. Thank you all for everything you do for our pets and us. I appreciate you all.

Yes, sometimes the wait is long! BUT I also have walked in with my dog in my arms and was taken straight to the examing room! I would NEVER complain about waiting for a normal exam when you get the service we did when it was an emergency!!!
These vets are worth waiting for and I hope you think enough of your animals to stop complaining. If you don't have to wait, it means the vet hasn't got many patients -- is that a good sign??!!!

I have been going to Dr. Curtin for years with my cats and now with my pug. I wouldn't change my vet for anything, I absolutely love the treatment my pug gets there. Yes, I do agree that the people up front need to get some "people skills" but all in all I am very happy with the Veteranarians and the clinical staff.

I've been going to AAH for years - Jack has an extremely busy practice, that's why he's not taking any new clients. His care of the animals is great - he treats his clients well, doesn't run up a huge bill (needlessly), and doesn't lecture unlike some other vets I've had. BUT you have to wait to get in to see him. That's my only gripe with AAH. The wait is generally 30-45 minutes, even with a scheduled appointment, but that's what happens with a busy medical practice. When was the last time anyone got in to see their own primary care physician without a 30 minute wait? Emergencies come up - the vets get called away to care for large animals and emergency situations. It happens. A couple of years ago my dog started convulsing at home. I rushed him to AAH, but he died in the parking lot - I ran into a crowded waiting room and asked for help and EVERY vet and tech in the place dropped what they were doing to help me. I'm sure that not one person in the waiting room objected to waiting a little while longer because frankly, it's more important to give care to an animal in need than worry about someone getting in within five minutes of their appointment time. People need to get their priorities straight and realize that Jack isn't a concierge vet - he cares for as many pets as possible as quickly as possible, but sometimes it takes time. As for his front office staff, they can be a little brusque, but I think sometimes the public just expects too much from people standing behind a counter. They do their jobs - if they're not warm and fuzzy, so what? They've always been efficient and courteous to me. But overall you can't find a better vet anywhere.

I've been going to AAH for years - Jack has an extremely busy practice, that's why he's not taking any new clients. His care of the animals is great - he treats his clients well, doesn't run up a huge bill (needlessly), and doesn't lecture unlike some other vets I've had. BUT you have to wait to get in to see him. That's my only gripe with AAH. The wait is generally 30-45 minutes, even with a scheduled appointment, but that's what happens with a busy medical practice. When was the last time anyone got in to see their own primary care physician without a 30 minute wait?

I have known Dr Lauren since we were kids (Lauren and I grew up riding horses together at my Mom's place where she kept her first horse for many years!!) and she is a wonderful Vet!! As is her HUSBAND! Dr Jack Curtain! They are dedicated to their animal patients and as far as the front desk staff is concerned, walk a mile in their shoes before you judge! I know for a fact people are more crazy about their pets care sometimes then their kids care!!! I realize some people are just not as "warm & fuzzy" as some think they should be, get over it....they care way more about the animals then the money for sure!!!

I've brought all my pets to Abington Animal Hospital and they have always done a wonderful job! The doctors are caring, and take their time with your pet. I agree with other posters that Drs. Curtin and Lauren are NOT all about the money. They truly love the animals. Their fees are very reasonable and it's with good reason that their waiting room is always full!!! I have also noticed that some of the front desk staff are lacking in people skills, and I've often felt "rushed" if I had to call them on the phone to ask a question, but all in all, I love this office and wouldn't go anywhere else!

We have a four year old Jack Russell who is mischievious and gets into everything. Last Easter he chewed a tennis ball in up and swallowed two good sized pieces. He stopped eating, and was lethargic, and broke out into this crazy rash. We took him to VCA in weymouth, because it was open 24 hours. They were compassionate, and thourough, but they wanted to keep Ryley for observation for four days at a cost of $2800.00. This was just to give him fluids and observe him. We decided we would stay home and observe him instead. They did not treat him in any way. They x-rayed him, insisted that what he swallowed were bones (I insisted that they were peices of a ball), and sent us home. The bill? $750 (higher than usual because it was Sunday AND a holiday).
First thing Monday we made an appointment with Dr. Curtain at Abington Animal Hospital, Ryley's normal vet. Dr. Curtain assured us Ryley would be fine, Gave hime some med to help him pass it, and told us to call him if he had not passed it in 24 hours. He did not, and when we called, they took us right in and he did something else to help him. Ryley was tennis ball free within 20 minutes from that appointment. Total bill for both apointments was $70 (with medication). He was kind, compassionate and confident in his course of treatment. That made my husband and I calm down, and most importantly, Ryley was back to his wild self that day.
We would never bring him anywhere else if we could help it. They have handled his neutering (with an undecended testicle), his routine appointments and immunizations. The staff isnt always warm and cuddly, but they are competent and busy.
Thanks guys!

I don't know what I would have done without him. He was always there to help my pets. He is not all about the money. He truly loves animals. If it was not for him my dog Haley would not have had five beautiful pups. We thank him so much for his hard work and dedication as well as the other vets that work with him Dr. Lauren and forgive me if I forgot to mention any other names my memory is not the best, but they are all great there.Dr. Curtains son Jesse gave me some good advise about pups with hernias and showed me how sometimes you can push it back in when there little and it will heal. I hope I said this right for I'm not the best with words.May god always bless him and be with him in his work and life,Linda M. White

I have been using Dr curtain for over 10 years . this is a wonderful clinic . we go for the care our pets get . and the reasonable billing . They have treated our goats , cats ,rabbits and rats . as well as barn calls to the horses at a barn I used to manage .
Please remember this is a very very busy small office and the staff are very busy . they are not there to hug and coddle you . they are there to serve the animals and make the office run as smoothly as possible .and to try to get the patients in and out in an orderly manner, there are often 10-20 customers and patients in the lobby as well as several on the phone line . the girls work hard and if they are not always as pleasant as you think they should be it may be with good reason ,as they are often multi tasking , the pet owners can be demanding and at times there are other things that may affect ones mood . I have found they give me very good care and service . we just recently had a pet rat neutered and I was very pleased
They are not a 24 hour emergency center . so it is not fair to complain when they are not available 24/7

This review has been updated:
To the person who had your cat's teeth cleaned and when you called the answering service answered, at least someone picked up the phone.... I understand they are not a 24/7 vet however, an answering machine or even a webpage (in this day and age -very simple) giving their hours would be very helpful. Again, I'm not talking about a 2am call, I'm talking about Tuesday afternoon or Saturday mornings.

I've gone to them several times and I do like them. I had a problem with our small dog having a bad reaction to a rabies shot, he actually blew up and was heading into anaphylactic shock, we caught it in time but no thanks to that office. They gave no warnings regarding this breed (a pug) being pre-disposed to this type of reaction. Thankfully, I always keep children's benadryl around and that saved him. The office wasn't too supportive when I called them back the next day but I chalk it up to how are they supposed to know who's going to react and who isn't. A slight warning would have been nice though.

Again, I still go back to this office and Dr. Curtain is a wonderful Dr. He truly cares about animals and loves his work. That counts for a lot, so many vets out there are all about the $$, he's one of the few that does it for the love of the animals. They have been treating our livestock as well as "regular" pets for years. For that, I'll remain faithful, even if that means making several calls over a few days, till I eventually reach someone.

I would also like to say that this is just my personal experience as well as my opinion. Some people have wonderful things to say, some not so wonderful. Either way, this is a review of a combination of people that feel strong enough about either the subject matter or facility to actually write. Everyone has to come to their own conclusions.

I was very nervous about getting my puppy neutered after reading the review since my last dog had a heart attack in my son's arm while he was walking him. My son could not lose another dog. I spoke to the staff about my concerns and they assured me that Dr Curtin has an excellent track record and my puppy Rosco would be fine. Rosco came out with flying colors and was treated with superior care and professionalism

I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Curtain for about 14 years now and I will NEVER go to another Vet EVER. Dr. Curtain is a straight shooter and is very up front and honest. He is a Vet for the right reasons because he cares about animals not the pay check. He never runs a ton of tests and xrays to run up a bill, if he recommends any tests it is because the pet really needs them. He is extremely knowledgeable and very compassionate. He truly cares about the health and quality of life of your pets. I have been through some serious illnesses with my dogs and I could not even imagine what it would've been like to have gone to another Vet. His rates are very very affordable and very caring. I will never go to another Vet ever. He is the VERY BEST that there is!!! I would and have recommended him to many and they will never go to another Vet either.

We have been bringing our pets to the Abington Animal Hospital for years now. I cannot say enough good things about them in regards to their pricing and care. They are amazing when it comes to their fees, ecspecially for people on a tight budget. I recently had to bring my cat in, he ended up having to stay there for almost a week because he had an infection. We were very nervous, we got a call from the vet explaining everything and were told we could always come and visit aswell. It was very comforting to know he would be ok, and when I asked about how much approx this would be costing us, I couldn't even believe my ears when they told me the amount, grateful doesn't even do it justice. Any other place would have charged 10 times as much!

Thank you!

I wrote a review on here a long time ago when my dog passed away, but I feel I must revise it. A year ago, my 11 month old chocolate lab was brought in to AAH to be neutered, and he passed away overnight. At the time I was furious and brokenhearted and wrote a review in the grip of my misery. This was entirely not fair of me. I had called them out on not taking care of my dog, but this was not the case-all procedure had been followed correctly, my pup's time had just come. No fault of the doctors. Since then (and even before) Dr. Curtin has been just amazing. He felt horrible over my loss, and found away to bring another labrador into my life. She (the new dog) in turn has since had puppies (one of which I also own, along with the father), and we have continued to bring all of our pets to AAH. Yes, the receptionists sometimes leave a lot to be desired, but the doctors at this hospital are amazing in their compassion, understanding and general knowledge of the pet-to-person relationship. I wouldn't go anywhere else in the world.

I needed to get my Chi puppy spayed and was trying to decide where to go as I recently moved to the North Shore. My mom always brought all of our dogs to Abington Animal Hospital and loved the care that they received. It's been over 13 years since we as a family have been going there. Although it's rather a far drive for me, I decided to go there anyway.
I can't say enough good things about the way that things turned out. My Chi was only 3 lbs and one of the young women dr's there was nervous about doing the surgery. She asked me to have my Penney gain weight, so we tried for the next 2 weeks to have her gain 2 lbs. Well, it didnt happen (not even close!) and I brought her in the night before the surgery, and the owner (other vet) said that he would be able to do her. Although I was advised my the vet techs that it could be dangerous, I decided to go through with it anyway as the chances of her gaining weight are so slim.
He (the vet- cant remember his name!) was wonderful! He finished up with Penney in the morning, and although they said that it wasnt usually done until after lunchtime, she was done by 3 and I was able to bring her home the same day! I was so nervous and my fears were really calmed after that.
Other than the outstanding care by the Vet and the sweet girls at the front desk who always remembered Penney, the best thing that I really can say about this place is the value. It really is the least expensive place on the South Shore, and the honesty and integrity that is shown there is superior. They never tell you anything is wrong with your dog just to tack on extra fees like many places do and they are very fair with pricing. I used to bring Penney to Hancock Animal Hospital in Quincy for her shots and check ups, but will be switching to Abington for her next rounds due to the price difference.
I noticed that a couple of the reviews were bad- and I think that they are crazy. But, like everything else, people really just complain to complain, and you are always going to have that no matter where you go. As for me, Abington Animal Hospital now has a customer for life!

I have been taking my 3 cats and 1 dog to AAH for almost 3 years. Dr. Curtin is so quick and professional yet kind and compassionate. They are busy, but I prefer to wait rather than make my pets go on a longer drive. Last spring I went to a new vet for my dog, I said "there's something wrong with his stomach; he needs an xray". She suggested trying a new food and waiting a month. He died. I don't know if it would have been different at AAH but is certainly is alot cheaper. I wish I didn't pay one third more for that service!

I have taken dogs, rabbits and guniea pigs and hamsters to Abington Animal Hospital and always got good service. I've been to other places that order tons of high end tests that in the end, made no difference to the pet's care. Just a big fat bill. Abington is a very busy office but I have always recieved very polite service over the last 12 years. When I had to put my dog down they treated me like I was the only person there and they were so compassionate. I'm not sure if a professional undertaker could have been more sensitive and kind. I think this is the best kept secret around.

I have four pets and have been bringing them to Abington Animal Hospital for 10+ years. Recently my16 year old cat had become very ill; I have had to bring him in a few times and my co works thought my bill should have been in the thousands from all the testing and treatment given. (Not even two hundred) I have had to call for test results and was always been treated as if it was my child, sometime better then my doctor??s office. Unfortunately, he had kidney failure and diabetes, so we had to put him down. Dr. Anna Chojnack-Duf was so great, I could not ask for more; thanks for the great service.

Remember everyone has a bad day and the amount of people who go there for their great price and dedication to our pets, makes it like the emergency room everyday. I would recommend them to anyone as they were recommended to me by a good friend who still uses them too.

Unfortunately, he had kidney failure and diabetes, so we had to put him down. Dr. Anna Chojnack-Duf was so great, I could not ask for more; thanks for the great service.

Remember everyone has a bad day and the amount of people who go there for their great price and dedication to our pets, makes it like the emergency room everyday. I would recommend them to anyone as they were recommended to me by a good friend who still uses them too.

this animal hospital is the best that i have ever been to. They are kind, compassionate and VERY caring for your pets' best interest and do not over charge or over perscribe like all the other vets that i have been to. Thank you Dr Curtain and staff for taking care of our past and present pets

To consolidate and the above and clarify: If you're looking for the Taj'mhal, you're not concentrating on the care of your animals. If you're concerned with the office staff, whom shuffle papers and complete transactions, they're actions are not affecting the care of our animals. As far as scheduling goes, if they are busy that is a good thing, because, us in the local community, have a firm belief in the their care for our animals (babies). The MSPCA is nearby if you need an emergency visit. When was the last time anyone reading this went to your family physician for an emergency visit? For example, a compound fracture. If a sore ear is an emergency, you are overreacting. Man invented acetamenophine, and u don't need an appointment to relieve discomfort.

I have the utmost respect for the staff and vets that care for my animals and they have always taken extra steps to ensure I am informed and that my animals are healthy and happy. They are an animal care center for all of your pet needs, and a lot of people know they are the best around.

I've had a couple of dogs one died of lymphoma and he was great...Saw the dog every 2 weeks for a steroid shot and gave me pills all for $6....He was so compasionate to the dog. I think he is great...i've gotten another dog since and a cat both of whom he treats...and he and his staff are great...it is sometimes tuff getting a quick appointment if it's non emergency but that's not there fault...

The first few times it was ok and the treatment was good but I just went to get my dogs nails clipped and when I left there, I felt as though the daggers were flying in my back when I left the place. I agree with the first reviewer that posted but for the price, it's good for nails/vaccines. It's a low-cost alternative to keep your pets up to date on their shots etc...but If you have the money to spare, go to a better place. It's not the most sanitary place either.

I have been using this clinic for my cats and dogs for many years now. Although it is always difficult to get an appointment scheduled quickly (unless it is an emergency), the wait is well worth it as the staff are attentive, caring and professional. I completely trust them with my babies!

I have used this animal clinic for years and one time one of my dogs hurt his foot and the other one had a sore ear. I called for an appt and they had lost some of their vets so they could not see me for a week. I was not pleased. but other than that they have great prices and the vets are wonderful.
