This is the first review i've ever written. I became a Hope client in 2009. I had been looking for a holistic vet for my 13 year old dog who had been having terrible skin infections and was also beginning to have trouble with her hind legs. I initially, i thought Dr. Young was great. Anyway, fast forward a year or so-my dog had "food allergies" (i started cooking for her), then it was hyperthyroidism, then she had Cushing's disease, blah blah. I spent literally thousands at Hope, between blood-tests, frequent office visits, medications, shampoos, cab fare to and from etc. i rarely left without spending a minimum of $200 (more often it was closer to $400). To get to the point, the vet care was adequate, though Dr. Young DID prescribe 2 medications that are DANGEROUSLY contraindicated. No apology, no explanation. They can never be wrong at Hope. But worse, the administrative end is a complete train wreck. When my dog was dying, I called Hope and scheduled an at home euthanasia for the following day. No-one ever showed up. Turns out, the receptionist failed to inform the doctor of my appointment. Again, no apology. Unacceptable, and I sure raised hell over it. Anyway, I must be a fool because I have continued to use them for my other pets. Perhaps out of a sense of loyalty. I recently rescued a kitten from the street. Took him in for the usual exam, shots, FIV tests, de-worm, ear-mite treatment. $240. Fine. But now that i need to neuter him (and I purchased a muffins certificate) they insisted he needed a "pre-surgery exam" and bloodwork, even though he was seen a few weeks ago. So back we went. Another $135. Personally, I believe that they should have at least waved the $65 office visit fee, if not out value for a good customer, then out of PLAIN COMMON DECENCY. Add to that the $185 estimate for the surgery itself plus meds and anesthesia catheter PLUS $50 for the muffins certificate.So, now were talking close to $400 to neuter a healthy rescue kitten. As if that's not outrageous enough, today i get a call from them saying his ALT is SLIGHTLY elevated and they would need to do yet another blood test pre-surgery. They are MERCILESS money grubbers!! Disgraceful.

Very unhappy with them. Got terrible advice from the owner Dr. Young that aggravated my male cat's Urinary Tract infections. On her advice I changed him to a "raw diet." Cost him a lot of pain and me a lot of money but no apology at all. (Just a lot of "Oh, don't be mad" from those in her employ.)
Then they tried to push herbal supplements. The place has all kinds of ways to make money.
The only reason I went back is because of Dr Susan Ryan. She left in September. Does anyone know where she's practicing now?

Dr. Christine Young at Hope Vet is the best vet i have ever had for my dogs. Her attention to detail and kindness to my dogs couldn't be improved upon. there is never any rushing when she is diagnosing and treating. Hope Vet is a lovely place. it's wonderful to have holistic medicine alternatives as well.

Everyone was very nice yet my cat saw a different vet every time we went for the same problem, each vet misdiagnosed my cat's problem, eventually one gave her the wrong treatment that almost killed her. After attempting to correct the problem they sent me to the emergency vet because they were short staffed. I ended up having to pay for the incorrect treatment, correction of the treatment at Hope, and the continuous correction of the treatment at the emergency vet place. When I expressed my concerns in writing they took 4 months to respond by saying I am wrong and I need to pay them for their mistake. There are better vets around that care about their clients.
