When I took my dog in for her yearly exam, Dr. Nauta prescribed a medicine for my dog to treat the stiffness that she has had since she was a puppy. He told me it was safe, so he didn't give me a list of side-effects. My otherwise perfectly healthy dog suddenly started falling over and couldn't walk, nor could she control her bowels. I shared my concerns about the medicine with Dr. Nauta, and he said the medicine was safe, that something else was causing the problems. In the course of less than 2 weeks, my dog went from being fine to being a paraplegic. At that point, Dr. Nauta thought that she had developed degenerative myelopathy, a genetic disorder that causes similar problems, and that it had caused a years worth of degeneration in two weeks. When I looked on-line for the side effects to the medicine Dr. Nauta had prescribed, all of the side effects my dog experienced, including paralysis, were on the list. The medicine was not safe. Even if my dog does have the gene for degenerative myelopathy, the disease had not progressed, and was brought on by the medicine. Dr. Nauta has worked with my pets for years, and has always been considerate and responsible. Before this experience, I would have rated this veterinary hospital with at least 4-stars. However, my dog probably won't survive the month. The effects of Dr. Nauta's treatment, and his insistence that his treatment had nothing to do with her rapid demise is unacceptable. That is what earned him a 1-star rating. Professionals make mistakes, just like everyone else, but it in necessary to acknowledge them and do everything possible to fix those mistakes and make sure nothing like it happens again. From our discussions, I have every reason to believe that Dr. Nauta will continue prescribing Rimadyl and declaring it safe, without including a list of potential side effects. If I had known the potential side effects, I would have taken my girl off of it the second day, and she would not be having these problems.

We had a small emergency with our dog and were able to get right in. The staff was really nice and fixed our dog up quickly. Since it was a small incident they didn't charge us, which was really nice of them. The entire facility was spotless.

I have a pet guinea pig who I absolutely love -- unfortunately most people just laugh at him and don't take him seriously as a pet. I needed to take him to a vet to get his feet checked, and found Cedar Animal Hospital in the phone book. They got us in for an appointment the very next day and were great to work with. They respected my little piggie and took great care of both of us. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area.
