Ha! They were actually recommended by a neighbor, since we were new in town. Brought my elderly sick cat in. Vet #1 talked so fast and much, I couldn't get a word in.You would think as a new patient, he might want to have listened more about his "new" patient. Blood work done. Guaranteed a phone call with results on Monday. Monday came and went...I was SOOOOOOOOOO anxious with concern for my cat. Finally, late Tuesday a.m. I called, quite unhappy. 10 minutes later vet calls...talking fast AGAIN, full of excuses why he hadn't called the day prior. He was getting ready to go on vacation. Needed to take cat in end of week for fluids. Blood tests showed end stage renal failure. Shame on him for not calling promptly with that info. Vet #2 checks my cat in on Friday. I need to leave her for the day, she is VERY unhappy, and scared. As he spoke of the seriousness of her condition, I choked up and was trying to fight back the tears, but it was hard. The box of tissues was a few inches from HIM...Do you think in kindness, he passed me one, or the box? NO! He finished "yapping" and left with my cat. I cried, got my OWN tissue and left. Picked my cat up in the evening. Vet #3 Told me I would have to give subcutaneous fluids twice a day...every day. Gave me a quickie course and said "Good Luck" on her way out. $175.00 in a week and a half and not one drop of compassion, or follow up phone call. Sadly, later that same week we had to put our beloved cat down. She suffered a couple of seizures and lingered for 8hrs before we brought her to a DIFFERENT Vet. The compassion showed to us at that "extremely difficult" time will NEVER be forgotten. Ralston is not a place I would refer my enemy too! It was a horrible experience from the moment I walked in. Compassion = 0. Go to VCA Animal Medical Center. They are the ones that euthanized our faithful friend of 16yrs. Treating her, and us with "kid gloves." I promised my cat I would write a review against Ralston if only to save one more pet and their loving owner the terrible experience we had. Ice runs through their veins. Please go elsewhere with your furry "friends", if you truly care for them, as I had.

Too busy and big. I felt like I was in a cattle chute. The receptionists weren't nice. The nurse was nice and the doctor was nice. Expensive. Appears cheap at first, but ended up being expensive. Not terrible at all, just not what we are looking for in a vet clinic.

We have been users of the Ralston Vet Clinic for over 30 years. They have treated both a dog and several cats for us. Have seen both Dr. Jurnigan & Dr. Erickson. We would never take our pets anywhere else no matter what the price. Not only are they knowledgable but they are compassionate. They put our dog to sleep and made it a bearable experience. Everyone who has lost a pet knows how tramatic that can be. We have also boarded our dog and cats at this facility many times. Our dog actually looked forward to going there. The absolute best.

I believe they are the best vets in the area. My dog was healthy when we moved here. I had her spayed at another clinic and she has had lung problems since and has developed congestive heart failure. The vets are thorough and personable and I went to many to find someone who would give her the care she needs. If you have a sick animal I would definitely recommend Dr. Erickson or any of the others at his practice. For non sick related things or shots I use the base but I would highly recommend Ralston Vet for very sick pets. They saved my dogs lives when they were poisoned by the yard care people with fertilizer. I called them and told them what I thought was wrong, they listened and treated them and they both lived. Excellent vets.

I have taken my beloved pets to Ralston for 20+ years. Dr. Erickson is my primary care giver. He has gone above and beyond for me and my pets so many times over the years! He is dedicated and genuine and I cant even imagine taking my pets to anyone else. My mom is a dog groomer, along with her, we would( and have) recommend Ralston to any good pet owner. Thank you Dr. Erickson for helping me keep my kids happy and healthy over the years and also for being there when its time to say good bye.

I've taken my dogs to Dr. Erickson since 1978. I LOVE & trust him with my "kids". I've compared him to "Dr. Welby" if you're old enough to remember that t.v. show about the kind/compassionate doctor! He's preformed spay, eye surgery and removed tumor on paw from my dog. He removed dew claws from puppies that my dog had. He's sensitive to the fact I don't have alot of money. He's been very available to me as a pet owner. He's seen my dog on HIS lunch hour on Saturday to accomodate dog's needs. I think people have to remember that they are doctors, NOT GOD! Even when things happened unexpectedly after surgery as is life...I TRUST Dr. Erickson.

First time puppy owner here and had most of my knowledge from my parents and when we had dogs growing up. A lot of the little stuff I had questions about. For my puppies first visit here (second round of shots) they were amazing. Spent 15 mins strictly on potty training. Any questions I have ever had they spend a great deal of time going over the answer with me. This place was extremely affordable. Very impressed, I can't wait to go back to the next visit just to thank them in person!

I have been taking my various animals to this vet clinic for 20 years now and have nearly always had extreamly great care. I've had the same vet for almost all visits and she couldn't be nice or more compassionate. The counter people are not the best, but they're very busy. Kind of irks me when I'm at the counter and they answer a ringing phone before they're finished with me. On the rare occasions I've had to have my animals see another vet other than my regular one, it's been 50-50 with my likeability of them and their treatment on my "kids." Overall, I'm very satisfied with the care my pets receive. They finally have a spacious facility and wait time is reduced. I'll continue to bring my animals there as long as Dr. Mansfield is there.

Our first experience was when our dog needed to be put down. He was 13 and in a lot of pain and had recently suffered a seizure, which just crushed me to see him go through this. I had an appt set up elsewhere but after speaking to a family member, I realized it was much more expensive than necessary. So I called Ralston Vet clinic and it was much, much cheaper and they got us in right away that day. They were VERY compassionate to our sadness and allowed us all the time we wanted with our dearly departed pet.

They've been very nice and efficient with our subsequent visits with other pets.

I love this clinic, and have only had one bad experience where a new vet misdiagnosed my cat and he died. The vet got fired.

We've been seeing this vet for more than 10 years, and they are very sensitive to the fact we don't have alot of money. I take my cat in every few months and they always bill me later and don't pressure me about the payment. I love how one on one they are and how thorough, I asked a question about my cat and the doctor he was seeing came up with her answer AND took him over to his normal doctor to confirm since it was her first time with him.

It seems to me that every body's got a "they killed my dog!" story. I think every vet clinic is going to have animals die and it is going to seem like it is the vets fault it's the same with people hospitals. I have taken my 2 dogs to this clinic for the past year and have tried many clinics. I like these guys and I think they do thorough diagnostics and come up with the right answers. The environment is a bit clinical and cold (go figure it's a clinic) and you will wait longer in this clinic than others but thoroughness takes time and at least I feel that when my turn to see the vet comes I'm the number one priority.

I experienced the same thing as Lind M about 6 months ago. I had a very sick dog and she got worse until I took her somewhere else. This clinic seemed to only care about payment - not my dog. Very indifferent and cold. Which is very sad since I live about 3 blocks from this clinic.

I found out recently that when my neighbor's dog got hit by a car this clinic wouldn't even look at that dog cross eyed with out a huge deposit. A deposit for emergency care!! I never heard of such a thing. BTW - the dog died while they were driving to another vet.

I've been taking my pets to Ralston Vet for over 15 years. (2 dogs, 4 cats, a hamster and gerbil) They have always been very professional and personal. I think I've only been less than happy with only one doctor over the years (and she's no longer there) Each doctor has treated my pets as members of my family and given them the best care. They put up with my abundance of questions each visit and were quick to respond when I brought in my cat after a vicious attack by dogs.

My wife and I have been taking our pets to RVC for years now. Every time we go, it's like a learning session.....the doctor tells us things not only to explain what he is doing, but to teach us things about the breed such as characteristics, certain habits, proper grooming techniques, etc. I have never found this level of care and commitment exhibited towards pets and owners alike at any other veterinary facility. RVC is simply the best!

Our dog Nikki goes to the Doctor at the Ralston Veterinary clinic, and I am very impressed with the fact that the staff there remembers her every time we bring her in. In an impersonal world, it is really nice when you get that personal touch. The veterinary care is good, and the prices are very reasonable.
