Dr. Doug Elledge and his staff (especially Sheila, Cathy, and both Careys) have been caring for our family's pets for almost 20 years. The only bad experience we ever had was with the now retired vet mentioned in a prior negative review. Dr. Elledge and his staff are competent, caring, and affordable. Our dog had a cancerous leg amputated two years ago and she still loves going to the vet - now THAT'S talent. Thank you, Redwood Animal Hospital for caring more about our pets than how much money you make. I had poor experiences for different reasons at two other East Asheville vets prior to finding Dr. Elledge. This office is THE best.

I know a lot of comments are praising Dr. Elledge on this site and I'm sure he is great but I wanted to warn people about another vet at this location that isn't so great. Dr. Vicha. Having just adopted a rescue dog, I made an appointment with Redwood having heard great things. Dr. Vicha was the vet and the experience was the most horrific I've ever experienced. He walked into the room and jumped right into poking and examining my dog with out any attempt at getting a history, background or asking me any questions. Having just adopted this dog and although she is very sweet at home, I didn't know anything about how she reacted to a exam situation. When he grabbed her mouth to check her teeth, she gave a warning snap, instead of backing off and evaluating the situation he grabbed her mouth again and tried holding her down and instructed me to do so as well. This freaked her out and she stared screaming like I've never heard, obviously very scared and fighting to get away. He tried to pin her down, clap her mouth shut all while she's fighting. Then he called the tech to mussel her also which she didn't like, after a minute of trying the mussel unsuccessfully and fighting her the entire time my dog became so scared she lost control of her bowels. At this point the Dr. Vicha released my dog and he and the tech walked out of the room without a word. I was left standing next to my poor dog covered in crap and urine with her shacking in my arms. For 10 minutes at least no one come in to check on me or tell me what was happening. When Dr. Vicha finally came back, he said " any other questions?" I was shocked and left there without any information, advise or exam. This was the worst experience I've ever had at a vet and wouldn't recommend this man for anyone. He is obviously an old school vet with no regard for a rescue dogs history or past experience. He gives Redwood Animal Hospital a bad name and never would I recommend it to anyone who cares about their pets. My dog is in the care of a great vet at Beacon Animal Hospital, who understands animals and actually cares.

Dennis and I have known Dr. Elledge since 1982 and we find him to be extremely honest and honorable. He is fair priced and the animals are treated with love and care. We moved from Asheville in 2005 and reside in Easley, SC where our pet Alex became irreversibly ill. We asked Dr. Elledge to help us when it came time to let Alex go. Asheville is fortunate to have Dr. Elledge and Redwood Animal Hospital. You can pay more but you can't get better.

We have been taking our pets to Redwood for 11 years. They have been so good to our pets and us. We feel that we get excellent care at very reasonable cost. Many friends have converted from other expensive vets to Redwood and they love it as well!

We have been going to Redwood Animal Hospital for 24 years after dissatistaction with another one on the east side of Asheville. At the time, we had a little dog that was a bit "nippy" and Dr. Elledge couldn't have been better with her and that sold me on the him and his staff. He is also more reasonable in price than most other vets. We have taken all of our pets there since and have never had a bad experience. I hope Dr. Elledge never retires!!

Redwood Animal Hospital is the best in town. I switched vets because I was dissatisfied wih my vet here in Candler. My dog hated him. They say animals have a sense about people. Well, both of my Boxer boys just LOVE Dr. Elledge. and he really loves them, too. He is a truely careing human being, and animal lover. He takes time to really explain what is going on, and the course of treatment. The entire staff is wonderful. And it doesn't break the bank every time we have to visit. Kudos to Redwood Animal Hospital Staff. I wouldn't want Duke and Mojo cared for by anyone else.

This IS the place you want to go if you want to get quality health treatment for your pet at an affordable price. Excellent animal care, Excellent customer service, Excellent treatment to the pet & the pet owner. Dr. Elledge at Redwood Animal Hospital is the best Vet in all of Asheville! He not only tries to remember you but he will try to remember your pet as well. He will make an effort to get to know your pet & their personality. Now that is hard to find in this day in age when taking your pet to the vet has turned into a comparable experience to taking your car to the car mechanics.

I love this place. The people are great and truly care about the animals. It is a small place and they really are working hard all day to care for all of the animals. It is clean and the animals are treated very well! Prices are very reasonable! They work with you as well! Family has been going to this vet for over 10 years! Highly reccommended!
