Although the place is clean and thorough, it's also way overpriced, they constantly try to add on additional tests and fees (it cost me almost $500 last time I was there with two dogs and picking up foods). You never get to see the same people twice if you're like me and can only take your pets in on the weekends. I'm not even sure the same people work there from year to year. When you've got an appointment, they can't seem to keep it -- you're always waiting, often up to twenty minutes or longer on the weekend.

They also discontinued carrying our cats' prescription food and we weren't notified until we showed up to get more. Since we were a bowl away from empty, that didn't give us the time to shift to a new food slowly, so all our cats were sick for two weeks.

The final nail on the coffin is they are so afraid of losing revenue that they refuse to provide prescriptions for pharmacies that aren't them, particularly online pharmacies, despite the law saying they must. Last year I had to sign a waiver, and this year (the final straw) they are asking me to actually come in and get a physical copy of the prescription. This kind of action is simply making us jump through hoops hoping we'll be too tired to bother getting it and sending it elsewhere.

I will never take any of my pets here again thanks to this lack of customer service.

I have been taking my yorkie to Lloyds since I got him which has been 3 years. Every visit for his yearly shots have cost me between 300 and 400 dollars. When I tried to order heartworm pills from 1800petmeds lloyds told them my dog was not a patient and then they sent me a letter stating heartguard will not guarantee heartworms unless purchased by a vet and Lloyds claims heartguard does not sell to petmeds. I recently got another yorkie and took her to foxboro animal hospital and for all the same shots including rabies and heartworm the bill came to 50.00 which is less than 20% of what lloyds charged and they also told me that it was safe to purchase from petmeds but they would match the petmeds price. A distemper and rabie shot is the same no matter where you get but Dr Mallock may tell you different - needless to say " I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO LLOYDS AGAIN - THEY ARE RIPPING PEOPLE OFF"

PLEASE, people, PLEASE, don't take your cats or dogs to this clinic: the veterinarians will tell you that your dog or cat needs dental procedures, and WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT, TELLING YOU only that your pet needs teeth cleaning, they will remove healthy teeth from your loved pets, without any need, just to charge you money for that.
PLEASE, PLEASE, don't go to this clinic if you love your pets,
ASK A VETERINARY proof that your pet needs extractions, ASK before signing any paper for any procedure involving anesthesia, Veterinarians at this center removed 8 teeth from a one year and a half healthy cat without any authorization, without any x-rays to support this dental "massacre" on an innocent cat, misleading a trustful owner into believing the procedure was only to clean the pet's teeth. DISGUSTING !

Person who is phone receptionist (person that answers phone) is extremely poor at people skills. My animal was dying and I was looking for info, but she was cold, unresponsive, and made me feel like I was wasting her time. Llyod's first foot forward is disgusting. Nice facility, not nice staff. Sory, no business from me as a result, and no recommendations to friends.

I have used Lloyd's AMC for many years for my cats as have several of my friends, including a local cat shelter I am involved with. I have seen 3 vets there. Dr. Cris is very honest and down to earth and will not push anyone to have tests or treaments if it will not clearly benefit the animal. Dr. Clark is also excellent and wrote me the most compassionate note when I had to have a cat euthanized last year. Dr. Mallock was amazing when my senior cat was very sick with pancreatitis--he made the diagnosis as soon as he looked at him, started treating him before the tests came back, and the cat was as good as new in a few days. He also gave me some of the services free of charge. I agree that Lloyd's can be pricey but no more than VCA or most of the other large vets. I'm sure that being a vet is much more difficult than being a doctor for humans--your patients can't tell you where it hurts and their survival instinct makes animals very adept at hiding their illnesses.

After treating my cat for several months for arthritis, the cat was still in constant pain. Although I told Dr Mallock that the cat was limping he concentrated on her hips. When I finally decided the he had no idea of what could be done, I took her to a specialist who x-rayed her
and found a cancerous tumor on her leg that resulted in the cats leg being amputated. I don't know what the outcome would have been if I continued with Lloyd Hospital, but after the surgery she is pain free and a happy, healthy 3 legged cat. If you love your pet take it elsewhere.

Very poor care and extremely expensive. Three appointments and $479.00 later, Dr. Mallock was still unsure why my cat had not eaten in over a week and was bleeding from his nose. Dr. Mallock sent me home on a Saturday morning telling me to bring the cat back to his office on Monday morning for a exploratory procedure. The cat suffered terribly all weekend. Come Monday morning when I called to get the time of the procedure and informed him that the cat was worse, Dr. Mallock informed me that he re-thought his ability to do the procedure that we discussed on Saturday and now believes that they can't do that procedure at their clinic and that I should now take the cat somewhere else. I was horrified, had I known that on Saturday I would have taken the cat somewhere else immediately rather than letting him suffer all weekend.
I actually found a very caring and competent veterinarian who actually kept the cat for 4 days in the hospital and charged me lesson than the three useless visits to Dr. Mallock.
The cat is now doing fine no thanks to Dr. Mallock.
Unfortunately, it cost me a lot of money to learn of the lack of caring and compassion from Lloyd's Animal Medical Center. BEWARE!!

Message from Lloyd Animal Medical Center

In 1947, Dr. William Lloyd established an animal hospital in nothing more than a wooden building some would call a chicken coop. Dr. Lloyd established a place where animals could come with their owners if they were sick or not and always be sure to be treated right. The hospital developed a reputation as a place where everyone always felt "at home" and everyone cared. At Lloyd Animal Medical Center, it is our firm belief that your pet is one of the most important parts of your life. We take pride in offering the best animal care currently available today in a modern, award-winning facility with a wonderful and fully devoted staff. It is always our hope that you feel comfortable in our hospital and will ask any questions you feel necessary to fully understand your pet's health. We are here to help. Simple as that may seem, it is really why we are all here. We care about your pets. They are a part of your family. We hope you will always feel welcome here. We will always strive to be the best and offer the most for you and your pet companions.
