Dr. Butler and her staff are AMAZING!, They truly give individualized care to my pets, they are warm and welcoming. My pets are less stressed than any other place I have been before. The staff is well educated and really help me make the best decisions for my best friends.

A good samaritan walks into a vet hospital carrying a dying squirrel he found lying on the sidewalk, obviously suffering. He asks if the vet clinic can euthanize the suffering creature. They say they can and proceed to ask for the good samaritan's contact information. After entering it into the computer, they turn to him and say politely, "That will be $238.91." The good samaritin is surprised and shocked - he was just trying to help the poor creature. They showed him his bill which quoted $50 for the office call (never spoke with or saw the vet) and $175 for euthanasia, along with a medical waste fee....

This may sound like the beginning of a bad joke, but it is the EXACT scenario that I experienced today when I brought a dying squirrel to Haddon Heights Veterinary Clinic. I had even told them I was going to take the body home to dispose of myself so we weren't even including disposal of the body in this bill. I was shocked and disgusted and left with the squirrel and brought him to another vet hospital who euthanized the poor animal for free AND took care of the body. Instead of doing right by this poor, suffering animal and ending it's suffering quickly, they made him stay alive for another hour while I brought him elsewhere to do the 'humane' thing.

I understand that vet hospitals need to charge for their services, and I wasn't necessarily expecting it to be free (though I have brought other injured/sick wildlife to other vet clinics (including 24hr emergency hospitals) and NONE of them have charged me anything for euthanizing them), but this charge was beyond disgusting. I have had several of my own pets euthanized and know that $175 is way beyond the scope of a reasonable charge. This clinic showed absolutely no compassion or caring to the suffering of a poor, helpless creature. REAL NICE, GUYS. Hope you sleep well at night. You better believe I will be letting anyone in the area know about my experience at your 'clinic.'

Business Response:

Dear Bob, We do remember this visit clearly. A gentleman walked into our office claiming to be a veterinarian and wanted us to euthanize a squirrel right away because his office was too far away. Immediately, we recognized something was not right. However, we did offer an office call and we did let him know the fee ahead of time for that office call with requested euthanasia, should that be decided upon after the office call. We routinely give estimates for all services requested: we believe it is a forthright practice and our owners have been pleased with this practice. Had the office call been desired, we were happy to accommodate right away even though we had several procedures that afternoon and this was a walk in appointment during the onset of that time. Why is the office call so important? Every veterinarian is acutely aware that euthanasia of any animal, wild or domestic is a responsibility of great magnitude. Each veterinarian is also aware of the responsibility to heal, to relieve suffering, and to protect public health. Public health is often the most difficult of all jobs, because many people believe that handling wild animals, especially ill or injured ones, is an act of kindness. What many do not realize is the serious risk of this practice. Veterinarians are perhaps the most privy to this information. This is why veterinarians with post doctoral training in public health or exotics, wild life rescue groups, county regulated animal control, and other venues work together to handle ill or injured wild animals. An ill or injured animal needs an examination to see if the illness or injury has potential for having transferred disease--or received transfer of disease--involving other animals and people. Veterinarians also recognize that if euthanasia is performed, the veterinarian asked to perform it bears the entire responsibility of this action and its consequences. Moreover, a veterinarian understands that the handling of a wild animal for euthanasia and care of remains are much more convoluted than the euthanasia experience that you have had with a family pet. This is why veterinarians routinely do not pick up wild animals, bring them to another veterinarian's office, potentially expose themselves and an office to health risks, and expect immediate euthanasia. Thus, for such a request as euthanasia on a wild animal, an examination and history is needed. This is where the office call is critical. What if this animal had been able to heal? Would a veterinarian want to euthanize it? What if after its examination, the veterinarian suspected that you might be in danger of being exposed to a life threatening disease? That office call could save your life. Bob, we celebrate it when people show kindness to animals. This is one of the many reasons veterinarians seek out this profession. If you wish to continue to seek out aid of animals in the wild, we strongly encourage you to seek out training through a wildlife rescue center, an animal control officer program, or government sponsored program. Since you have had pets yourself, perhaps your current small animal veterinarian would be a resource for you. An office call would allow you to discuss your interests and how they can be safely pursued. It is a worthy effort, but must be done with great caution. Please be safe as you move forward. We wish you much success in your future. Sincerely, The Haddon Veterinary Clinic Staff

I bring by cats and my dog to Dr. Butler and she is the best! There is a girl that works there, Heather, that is great, warm and friendly, just like the doctor. In defense of the clinic at the past review, there has been a few staff changes over the years but the ones that are there now have been there for a few years and are great! I recommend Haddon Vet to everyone! Close to home too.

We saw Dr. Anne Butler with our dog for 2+ years. We loved the doctor and she was fantastic with our dog.

The practice was kind of expensive and the staff always seemed to mess stuff up. The last straw was when they needed to simply call in a prescription for HeartGuard and we were promised that it would be done same day...it took them a week and countless phone calls from us and they charged us $10 for this.
