The actual vets are great, it is the staff that is the issue. On one occasion, I took my pet for treatment of heartworms. After dropping him off at 7am I was called in the afternoon to be informed they "didn't realize he was there for heartworm treatment and failed to start the treatment early enough" (it was the only reason he was there). I also had made an appointment 2 months in advance for rabies vaccination and teeth cleaning and showed up to be informed that the appointment was only for the rabies vc. and that they couldn't perform the teeth cleaning because they were too booked up (I took days off work for both these occasions). There was never any apology from the staff. Just a "you can re-schedule". The front office staff has never been professional or provide customer service at an acceptable level. Until they can correct this you should seek a vet somewhere else.

I work at Carlson Pet Hospital and I just wanted to pass along a few client comments about Carlson Pet Hospital. These are actual client comments taken from a web survey.

Client #1) Comments:
We love you guys so much! and we will miss you all so much when we move away. you guys have been wonderful to us for about 10 years thank you! thank you! thank you! thats still not enough.

Client 2) Comments:
You guys are great!!! Out cat was neutered, declawed, and vaccinated on the same day. They were very informative with what they were doing with him and kept us updated frequently. Everyone was very nice and I know my cat was in great hands at Carlson Pet Hospital! The only place I will take my cat Butters too!!!

Client 3) Comments:
i changed vets because of the way iwas treated. a friend recommended your clinic, and i have to say i am so grateful. my appointment was a awesome experience. sancha and i have found a vet for life. thank you so much for treating us like we matter.

Client 4) Comments:
Your customer service is awesome! You have a wonderful staff that not only sincerely love the animals, but they obviously love their jobs as well. Nothing speaks louder about how well everyone is treated, than the way your staff treats your clients. I am extremely impressed and, incredibly, General wasn't scared to be at the Vet.'s office, WOW! Thumbs up to you, Dr. Lisa, and your awesome staff!

Client 5) Comments:
The sample kitty treats we received - Hypoallergenic - were apparently very yummy. Precious just loved them, which is surprising because she usually only eats soft treats, but she ate a few and wanted more before bed. Overall I'm very happy that I chose to bring Precious to your facility. All of the associates were very kind and generally interested/concerned with my pet's health. The ofice was also very clean and tidy. Not to mention the office kitty Larry who seems to welcome all the animals.

Client 6) Comment:
I sent Dr. Lisa a picture of Duchess standing on all 4 legs after only 4 days of her meds. Hope you receive it. Duchess just wanted to say thanks for being the best friend she has.

I've been using Carlson Pet Hospital for over 16 years, my aunt has used them since I can remember and my Grandmother used them from 1968 up until she passed away in 2007. On occasion (in the past when they were closed and before the Emergency Vet) we have had to take our pets to other vet clinics over the years but we always return to Dr. Carlson because she really cares about the animals. Dr. Carslon called me one evening at 9pm to see how my dog was doing after he had received emergency surgery at the clinic... I see some negative comments and reviews on here and I have to disagree with every single one fo the. I feel for their loss, but I know MANY people that take their pets to Dr. Carlson and they (and their pets) love Dr. Carlson and have never had a bad expeirence there. The staff is very good too and I always get my "Nikki" well taken care of while there.

I have known many vets, but few compare to the care I get at Carlson Pet Hospital. I first found them out of necessity. Our dog made a trip to the ER Vet Clinic one night and had to be checked out around 7:00 am, but wasn't in any condition to go home. Our vet wasn't open and wasn't going to be able to take our dog on such short notice. The Staff at Carlson not only took us in, but cleaned him up and monitored him for any changes before releasing him. Oh and did I mention that they double checked his vaccination records and got him up to date on that too. My experience has been great. They are good communicators and ask before they do anything that is not routine or costs more money. They offer a wide range of services like micro-chipping (probably the best investment next to your regular vaccinations and other maintenance) and their on-line store is with in cents of Pet-Care-RX. My sister also switched vets for her dog who "hates" the vet and is "scared to death" to go the vet's office. When we took her dog to Carlson's, she (the dog) never skipped a beat. It was like she sensed the positive and relaxed atmosphere. Possibly the best thing about Carlson's is that they will work around your availability for appointments instead of their own. If only the doctor's office would be so kind. You can see why they get 5 stars from our family.

I had been bringing my dog there for about 5 years and he was only 6 years old. They killed him a few days ago by putting a tube down his throat and the food went down the wrong pipe. I know this was an accident, but I will never trust a vet again. Please make sure you let the vet know you want to be called about any invasive procedures as this was a nightmare for us to go through.

Dr. Carlson became my vet when she saved my friend's Siamese. Another vet had given up on her but, thanks to Dr. Carlson's skills and caring, the cat had several more years of good life.
The staff is friendly and the facilities are well-kept. I recommend them

This vet is a great choice for those that live on the west side of Springfield. I have a couple of friends who live over there and this is their vet. They have been going here for years and have been very pleased with the service and the quality of care for their pets. I have heard really great things about this vet here and there around town as well. The prices are similar to other vets in the area. Definitely a great vet to choose for your animals.
