Will not go back as long as Dr. Hagan is working. He is the worst vet at NAMC. The rest of the staff was amazing but Dr. Hagan was horrible.

WARNING! These people could hurt your pets!
This post is dedicated to my bunny Panda. She was taken away by a rude tech for an exam by Dr. Riley, whom I wasn't introduced to. After finally speaking with the vet, I felt like nobody there cared because no blood work was done or ex-rays taken. The vet accusingly told me: "Most people don't want to pay to have their rabbits ex-rayed". That was insulting, as I brought Panda there for a thorough assesment. So, they weren't positively sure of what ailments she had, but suggested treatments that just didn't make much sense to me. I tearfully asked for Panda back. We needed to go somewhere better. Then I saw that her lips were turning blue! There was never any mention of her needing oxygen! I felt her dying in my arms! To my horror, I realized that Panda needed immediate euthanization! I didnt trust them to do that, but we were hopelessly trapped with all better clinics being closed for days on this early weekend morning. We ended up in a morgue-like room with alot of cages and loud barking; not, at all, the peaceful room they advertise! Panda was terrifed of dogs too! While lying on a gross slab, she was treated like a piece of meat! There would not be one kind word or soothing handling from the vet, eventhough, she knew that Panda understood 30+ words. I tried to shield Panda and worried about her treatment earlier in THE OTHER ROOM. For comfort, I placed my hand over Pandas' face. She used to nudge her head under my hands for comforting, but couldn't do that now. I could see that the euthanasia process was dragging out way too long! It should have been instant. I wanted to whisk her away, but knew that it would only add to her suffering at that point! She would shake her very sensitive ears as the vet needled through them for a long time with the heart-stopping drug. Panda never liked having her ears messed with and now they were bruised and peirced in multiple places! Then she jerked her head back after another needle stab to an ear! She was unable to blink and her eyes were becomming dry and sticky! I tried to close them for her. It appeared that she hadn't been properly anesthetized as she reacted to numerous painful jabs and ear tugs. The vet made a horrible remark like "Who knows what they feel?" Panda was then stabbed in the leg and instantly injected with something else! Slower would have been less painful ( from my own hospital experience). The vet also remarked: "I'm not very good at this. My tech can do this better, but went home." I wasn't allowed to help and cried more for Panda. We were trapped in hell with no mercy! All of my comforting just wasn't enough. After suffering a half hour, or so, of torture, Panda slowely passed! Then, the vet muttered something like: OK! It's done! She then turned her back on us and walked away from the slab of death. This was like no other euthanasia that I have ever witnessed! It was horribly apparent that nobody there could care less about either of us! What awful people! Earlier, the vet had remarked that animals should die for our medicines and that she became a vet because animals could be euthanized. They were experts at adding insults and more pain. It was a nightmare for Panda and me in our greatest time of need and was unbearable! Sadly, I failed to find my soul mate a peaceful end to her happy life! I tearfully cradled my dead friend in my arms, and was lead to the office where the vet wanted payment for all this. She loaded me down with my purse and bill, leaving me struggling to get into my car without help. There were no condolances given on our way out. I did hear a good-bye and: "Do you want a box?" (as if we just left mcdonalds).Later, I saw that my bill was reduced, but that wouldn't reduce the torment Panda endured now! She loved all people and always had kisses for them. I would have paid these "slaughternarians" whatever they wanted for treating Panda with compassion, like they also advertise. Now, I wonder if Panda felt betrayed by me taking her away from our home, while she was sick, and given to strangers that were so mean to her. I'll never go back!

I boarded my two dogs for a few days at NAMC and they came back with extra food and treats even though I portioned it exactly how it should've been disbursed among the days. Also I left their blanket with them so they would feel more comfortable and the staff had told me they were unable to find my pets' blanket when I came to pick them up. This frustrated me deeply because I felt my dogs weren't properly looked after and my feeding instructions were disregarded. I most likely will not board my dogs here again.

No compassion--\r
My dog had eaten a few oreos and I brought him in to make sure he was going to be okay, and when I spoke with the vet about my concern, he acted like I was an idiot for thinking it could harm him. I was very put off by

This place is a joke as far as boarding is concerned. They charge by the "day" for boarding. SO example, we brought our dog in @ 5:30pm Dec. 22. Picked him up by 3:30pm Dec. 23. So we were charged 2 DAYS even though he was not there for

We have been with NAMC since our boxer Sadie was adopted. She gets the greatest care in the city from all the staff. We use their recommended food & have all our issues taken care of in house. THANKS NAMC

I love this pet clinic! They are the total one-stop pet center. I take my dog here for her veterinary services, grooming, training, boarding and doggie day care. The staff is super caring and accommodating, they know my dog by name when she comes in. I was hesitant to go here at first as I heard they were more expensive, but I've found that to be the opposite, many services are cheaper or at least similar to other vets I've had in the past.

They offer emergency service 24/7/365, I've only had to call in for an emergency once, but they were really responsive and made sure that my pet was well taken care of through the whole ordeal.

If you need a new vet, I am big fans of both Dr. Frey and Dr. Pretzer, but the whole staff there really cares about pets.

They take a wide variety of payments and work with pet insurance companies.

After being told that we would need to sedate our dog, who was abused before adopting him, for grooming by other groomers, we took our dog here. When we dropped him off, they asked if it would be okay to try without sedation--and we said of course! They take their time and do a good job with our scared little dog.

PROS: Have Saturday hours, work with difficult animals
CONS: sometimes hard to get an appt since they are so popular!

Nebraska Animal Medical Clinic is a very good veterinary clinic in southeast Lincoln. I care for guinea pigs, and when I found a vet in town who not only was familiar with the animals but had some herself, I knew I was in the right place. The staff is always friendly, and the doctors very knowledgeable. The food and other supplies they carry is of the highest quality, and extended hours and emergency hotlines mean your furry friends are never without help. Highly recommended.

PROS: Compassionate, capable staff.
CONS: Traffic layout makes getting there a bit difficult sometimes.
