.

I began taking my dog to Columbus Central Veterinary in April of this year for his annual shots. They seemed great then...just a simple and quick in and out visit for his shots. Overpriced, but it seemed to be worth it considering they had an emergency clinic and they were only 5 minutes from my house. Until a few weeks ago, my dog cut his paw pad outside on a piece of glass and we immediately rushed him to the vet. As soon as we got there, one of the techs carried him to the back while we had to wait in the waiting room wondering what was going on. I felt so uneasy about not going to the back with him but I figured it was standard procedure. The vet then told us that she would have to suture his paw pad. My boyfriend and I both found this odd considering the wound was not a laceration but an abrasion. How do you suture an abrasion? But we put our trust into them and let them suture his paw. He came out about 45 minutes later still under anesthesia which was very hard for me to see. They all found it amusing that he was running into walls and falling down and kept giggling. I've never seen anything like that and it broke my heart. I expected them to be a bit more compassionate. We were to go back in a week for a bandage change and his first check up. After the first bandage change, my dog chewed his bandage off while we were at work. When we got home and saw, it looked as if his paw had never been sutured in the first place. We wrapped his paw and made another appointment to take him back. When we went back, our appointment was at 8 pm. They didn't take us in until 9:30. They took our dog and about 20 minutes later the tech came out to tell us they'd have to re suture his paw. Keep in mind, this was 5 days after he chewed the bandage off. Once a wound is open for 24 hours you aren't supposed to re suture it because it has already started healing. Why did they want to re suture my dog's paw? So we asked to speak with the vet. The tech took us into an exam room where we waited for 40 minutes all the while listening to the vet and the techs talk in the hallway. Talking and laughing and joking as if they had nothing to do. After the 40 minutes, we left. I made an appointment at another vet and when I took my dog there, she explained that she never sutures paw pads because the minute the dog puts weight down on that leg, the stitches pop right out. She wrapped his paw and told us we could re wrap it ourselves every 5-7 days. So, not only did Columbus Vet suture something they should have known wasn't meant to be sutured, but they wanted to do it a second time 5 days after the stitches came out...once the wound was already healing on it's own. I believe that they saw how vulnerable and young I was and knew that they could convince me that I would need to spend all this money for my dog to heal. It has been a week since our last visit to them and his paw is healing beautifully. I would not recommend Columbus Veterinary to anyone. They are not in the business for the pets, they are clearly only in it for the money.

Our introduction to CCVH was when our new puppy was found to have Parvovirus and both wife and I were at work. A friend took our pup to the vets there and they took great care and allowed us to pay them after we arrive home from work.
From there we decided that no one else would see our dogs. We have had two dogs spayed there and our yellow lab had stomach surgery there after eating a rug for the 2nd time , and also had her torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament replaced in her knee. The vets, techs, and office staff are always kind and compassionate and very helpful. We've been going there for routine visits as well as emergency visits for over 7 years now.

Excellent medical care for all types of animals; they now even take care of farm animals. I have had my two long term dogs taken care of there. I had my dogs for 13 years and had been to many different vets trying to find a place that was caring AND knew what they were doing. After many years of searching I found Col. Vet. Hsp. . They are all knowledgable; it does not matter which vet you get...other places I would have to request a specific one so I knew I was getting someone who knew what they were doing...and if that person was not on duty at the time, I was stuck. Not here; they are all excellent. Even the people at the front desk are kind and caring. I am not sure if they are considered expensive as I never really compared. If you are taking the time to have a pet you should choose a competant and caring doctor; and this is certainly the place. I now take my new puppy and kittens there as well. Top notch service. A bonus: 24 hour emergency help.

Over the last 26 yrs. I've seen many changes to CCVH. All for the better, I might add. I've always taken my babies (dogs) there for a broken bone, regular check-ups, illness, medications etc. and have never had a complaint or problem. Then my fiancee and I adopted a retired military working dog in 2007, and now find myself fostering for a local animal rescue alliance. So...between my three dogs and the one extra foster pooch, I can sometimes spend lots of time at CCVH. Everyone there, from the lowest on the totem pole (who they are, I'm not sure, because they all help you no matter what you need) to the most senior Veterinarian, I've always encountered smiles, professionalism, compassion, honesty, patience & during those awful times ~ sympathy, because they ALL CARE. I couldn't possibly recommend better medical caregivers than those at Columbus Central Veterinary Hospital.

Our dog was taken to this hospital after she was hit by a car. Although her injuries were too severe and she had to be put to sleep I can't thank the doctor enough for all of his efforts to try and save her. He wouldn't give up until the very end and he made her as comforatable as he possibly could. we will be forever grateful for his kindness and his compassion for an animal whom he never knew.

I am the friend the other reviewer spoke of and she was right on the money! I have no reservations baout saying that they saved my cat's life. I was freaking and they calmed me down and gave me the whole story when i asked about her condition. Dr. Ahmed is so compassionate and actually took the time to come to the phone when i called. He didn't just give the info to a secretary. I can't say enough about this place! I even took them a pizza party at the follow up visit because I was so happy.

My best friend Michelle came home from work one day and found her cat in a pool of blood on the bathroom floor. She quick wrapped her in a towel and took her down the street to Columbus Veterinary hosp. The doctor here was fabulous because at first they didn't expect the cat -Disney - to make it. He gave Disney recieved excellent care- Disney needed IVs, medicine, blood, etc. The communication here was also appreciated. This hospital has tehs that stay over night and when Michelle called to check the status of her cat- all her concerns were addressed and it made her rest much easier. So a big Thank You to the best Veterniary hospitla around!!!

We took our dog there for an emergency visit as he was having seizures and our vet was not available. They also said he herniated a disc in his back from the seizures and had some other disease. They had him on so much medication the poor thing was vomitting blood and passing blood in his stool. I would not recommend them at all. When we took him to another vet on a family member's recommendation they said he did not have a herniated disc and did not have whatever the disease was that he had and his only problem was the siezures.

This is where we take my cat. They are a very experienced and friendly staff. I have never had to wait long for my cat to be seen. There is a tv in the lobby. They also have kennels and emergency services.

I can't give it 5 stars only because we've never had any serious issues to depend on them for their help.
