I have been taking my yellow lab to Dr. Southard for 13 years now. I would never take my animal any where else. I can't believe that people are writing on here that he is rude and so is his staff! Nothing could be farther from the truth. The doctor and his staff are some of the kindest people I have ever met. They always take the time to talk to us about what ever issue our dog may have. Now that she is in her later years I would never take her to someone else. We LOVE Dr. Southard and his staff. Please don't believe the negative review's you've seen here, I believe, they are stretching the truth!

I would recommend Kinderhook Small Animal Hospital to any one! I have been bringing my pup Cassie there for 5 yrs now. When ever I have a question about any thing, the staff are always there to answer any of them. They always give great

I have taken all of my pets here for years and I have never had a bad experience. Dr. Southard and his staff are wonderful, caring, people. The are patient and gentle with the animals and have never been anything but pleasant to me and my pets.
Don't be swayed by someone reposting one bad review over and over. These people are the best! They also don't over prescribe treatments, tests or medicines to pump up their bills like other vets in the area.

I have never in my life been so poorly treated by a service provider. After moving into the area, I tried to make an appointment for my dog. I was told to get his records from the previous vet office and to drop them off, and that Dr. Southard would take a look at them and let me know if he would take the dog as a patient. My former vet tried to fax them the paperwork, but their fax machine was not working (they were incredulous upon finding this out) so I had to drive 25 miles to pick up the records and personally drop them off at the office. While I certainly respect the vet's prerogative to see whomever he likes, I did not hear back from him regarding his decision. I had to follow up with a phone call and was told by the secretary that the doctor "had decided not to take him as a patient." When I expressed my dismay at all of the hoops I had to jump through (9 months pregnant and traipsing these records all over the place) the secretary hung up on me. When I immediately called her back to ask her why, she said, "Oh, I thought you had hung up on me." Um, no, I had asked you to take down my address so you could send me the records. Avoid this place at ALL COSTS! They are RUDE! We took our dog to the Chathams Small Animal Hospital and couldn't be happier with the service.

I have been bringing my cat to the Kinderhook Animal Hospital for the past three years and my dog for the past six months. Dr. Southard and his staff have always been kind, knowledgeable and they have a great bedside manner. When I found my cat (it was abandoned at 4 weeks old), Dr. Southard helped me nurse him back to health because he was ill when I found him.
Dr. Southard is excellent with both animals. The person below with the bad review, may need to train her dog or tell both sides of the story. If you can't control your animals, maybe you shouldn't have them.
I highly recommend Dr. Southard.

Dr. Southard & his staff took care of my cat Tigger back in January of 2009! Dr. Southard showed the utmost kindness and concern when he diagnosed my cat as having a cancer called Fibro Sarcoma. It was a cancer at the site of where your animals normally receive the rabies vaccine in the neck, and Dr. Southard knew what it was right away! He examined my cat to determine that he was healthy enough for the surgery to remove this tumor before it spreads to other areas and be the end of my cat if something wasn't done soon. It was growing rapidly.
There fore we were able to skip on some costly tests, biopsies and xrays which saved us a lot of money! He suggested surgery for removal that afternoon. He and his staff genuinely showed true concern for my pet and answered any and all questions we had as a pet owner without rushing us, and it was then I knew my cat was in good hands. It was my first time ever using this animal hospital, and I am so glad I did. They fixed my cat and caught the cancer early, and even though my cat is getting up there in years, I am sure to have him around alot longer because of this fine Doctor. I am so greatful to him and his staff for the careing and professional way they handled our situation. I can see me having a long relationship with this Doctor & staff with Tigger and all my other pets in the future! I would like to thank them all from the bottom of my heart.
So Thank You Dr.Southard & Staff!
I will always be greatful! You are 5 stars in my book!

Pros: So very affordable! A wonderful caring Doctor & Staff

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I have to agree with Dick S. as I have never had a problem with the Kinderhook vet or his staff. They have always been very attentive and calming to my pets. I have been bringing my own pets here for 13 years and always brought the family pets there going back to when Doc Fox ran things. I will continue to use Dr. Southard and his staff for as long as I am blessed with my crew of critters.

I've been to this Animal Hospital on a few occasions and found Dr. Southard to be unfriendly to the animals, rarely ever petting my dogs and never greeting me with a (hello) or anything. The visit also was only 5 - 10 minutes and he really didn't say a whole lot. The staff did not seem to be very good either. I have recently moved and am bringin my dogs to the Coxsackie Animal Hospital. Dr. Perkins and staff are excellent! They love seeing my dogs, always petting them and treating me very well in the process. Dr. Perkins has spent over an hour with me and my dogs on several occasions. The office is spotless and is always packed with people which shows other people in the community feel the same as I do.

My wife and I have been taking our pets (dogs & cats) to Dr. Southard for over 20 years and have always been treated respectfully and professionally. They are a very caring office. I don't know what rsdifazio's issue was but I can guarantee that she must have done something to provoke the situation. What she describes is just so out of character for Dr. Southard and his staff that I'm sure she's only telling one side of the story. Just goes to show that there's no pleasing some people.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Southard and his staff to anyone looking for quality, compassionate and professional care for their pets.

Nobody has taken better care of my little pookie than Doctor Southard. We have 12 dogs and have been professionally breeding for 24 years, we will go no place else for our dogs. Dr. Southard has saved us money and given us the best advice on their care.

Pros: Great Value

Cons: only one Vet - scheduling sometimes challenging

Kinderhook Animal hospital has the most friendly and respectful staff in town. We just changed vets from another local vet after a referral from a friend. They also charge so much less than my old vet, it was a very smart move. We love Dr. Southard and wouldn't have anyone else take care of our little ones.

Kinderhook animal hospital hospital has the best prices in town and has a very knowledgeable staff. We moved into town about 5 years ago and have been taking our animals there. We were shocked as to how much we paid for the service we recieved, the best value around. We love Dr. Southard, very quiet, but a great guy to know who takes excellent care of us. High recomend this place to anyone who loves their pets.

My husband and I have brought our dog to Dr. Southard for the past five years. We will not be returning after today's visit. Our dog is always very well behaved, but is a barker, and can be a bit unnerving if you are not particularly fond of dogs. Apparently, Dr. Southard is not particularly fond of dogs, because at today's visit, he reprimanded me (read: yelled) for not holding the dog tightly enough. I believe that his exact words were, "If you are not going to hold him, I will give you his records and you can get out". This, after I *was* holding the dog. He claimed that the dog has tried to bite him every time we bring him in. I can assure you that my dog (a black lab) has never tried to bite anyone. Perhaps part of the problem is Dr. Southard's overall demeanor with animals (and people). He is not particularly friendly, and apparently does not believe in exchanging niceties upon meeting clients. He has never once actually tried to pet the dog, or even call him by name. We had always just chalked this up to him being shy. While I will say that Dr. Southard appears to be a good vet, I was shocked at the way I was treated today, and would highly recommend bringing your animals elsewhere. I would also question if my husband would have received the same rude treatment, had he been there instead of me.
