One too many weird interactions with Dr. Dendtler with my brother's cat and my own...she made me uncomfortable to the point that I decided -- in spite of the ease of location -- I could not deal with her judgmental attitudes (Axis II sound familiar?) as well as the staff's unprofessional and lax ways of communicating. I have been very happy with Animal Kind since then.

Okay it has been YEARS since we've lived in Brooklyn, but I feel so strongly about this, I had to chime in. Back in, oh, 1992 or so, our collie died very unexpectedly at another and better known clinic in Park Slope. I'm not going to say which it was, because I don't know that they were at fault.
A couple of years later, our new dog developed a lump on her neck. I took her to the clinic where our collie had died and the head doctor there said he should remove the lump surgically to examine it. A friend of mine said: your last dog died there; why don't you get a second opinion?
So I went to Sixth Avenue, where Dr. Pamela Dendtler examined our Ella, and said if anything they would do a needle biopsy first, not remove the whole thing, and that surgery on the neck was serious business best left to a specialty animal hospital. Then she asked if Ella was a puller, and I said yes. She said that because the lump was right where the collar would hit it when the animal was pulling hard, perhaps the lump was caused by the pressure. She suggested we try a harness instead, and monitor the lump. It was gone in less than two weeks.
After that, we always referred to the old vet as "Dr Death."
Dr. Dendtler provided great care to our Ella until we moved away from Brooklyn. Her affect might seem strange at first but it is because she is thinking hard! Recommend this vet so very highly.

The staff at the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic, are wonderful. I brought my maltese there because he had been scratching his ear constently. I called and was able to get an appointment the same day, which I thought was great. The staff are very kind. The doctor as well as her assistant took time to answer every question I had. She carefully explained his infection and how to care for it. Another thing that I thought that was important was the price. I was worried that I was going to leave with a 2 - $300 dollar bill. They were very resonable. The doctor explained all the prices that would take place before she did anything to my dog. They were very respectful on that matter. Its very expensive to own a pet. Overall I must say I think 6TH Avenue Animal Clinic is a great place to bring your pet!! Thanks again.

Although my boyfriend and I only recently moved to Crown Heights and started taking our animals to the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic in Park Slope, I feel like I have gotten enough of a sense of the place to recommend them to others. When we moved from North Brooklyn, I already had a 2-year-old cat and we decided to adopt a pair of kittens, one of whom still needed all of his vaccinations. I made an appointment for him at the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic based on the number of favorable reviews I found on other web sites. From the friendly receptionist, to the kind vet tech who weighed the kitten and cooed over how cute he is (and he is cute), to Dr. Perry, who examined the kitten and gave him his shots, we were impressed with the consistently high level of service we received. Since then, one of the kittens went back to the Clinic with a stomach problem. Dr. Allen provided excellent care for him on short notice (I called and left a message with my concerns and his symptoms before the Clinic opened in the morning and they called me back by 9:30 to schedule an appointment that day) and the staff kept him for observation that afternoon. After they sent him home with medication, the Clinic called several times over the next week to check on his progress. They also promptly responded when we emailed them with an inquiry about the medication. Most recently, I took my older cat to the Clinic for a check-up. Dr. Allen found she had a loose tooth. After doing some bloodwork to make sure she could handle being sedated for the surgery and that there were no other problems, the Clinic scheduled her extraction and teeth cleaning with Dr. Perry for today, which went off without a hitch. When I received an invoice for the dental work, I was also pleasantly surprised to find they had given us a significant dental work discount and did not charge us at all for her nail trimming during this visit.

While my boyfriend is more staid, I am a very nervous cat parent and Dr. Allen and Dr. Perry have been, frankly, awesome with my kitties and with me. Their bedside manner is gentle and comforting for felines and humans alike. Additionally, every vet tech and receptionist I have encountered has been kind, funny, and helpful. Lastly, I by no means make a lot of money and am responsible for a pretty hefty student loan payment every month, and I still find their rates very reasonable. And in turn, my cats have only received excellent and compassionate care.

Pros: Amazing vets and vet techs, friendly receptionists

Cons: Hard to Park in the Slope (not the Clinic's fault, though!)

Best vet ever!!!! My cat had chronic urinary problems and the vets gave him special care and were always willing to talk to me about any concerns I was having. My cat ultimately had to undergo surgery and Dr. Allen saved his life. I would recommend this vet to anyone. They are kind, caring, and treat their patients like family.

I used to take my cat to Fifth Ave Cat clinic but not anymore. One day she had an emergency situation and they could not squeeze me in even though I was a loyal customer of three years. That really ticked me off, so I called the Sixth Ave Animal Clinic. They were very considerate and allowed me to bring my cat in within a few hours. Dr Alan and his team were fantastic. He communicated everything that was going on with my cat and what needed to be done to clear up the problem. She was in perfect health when I went to pick her up the next day. This place really cares about the animals and are very considerate of the owner's time and money. They are fantastic.

...and I wouldn't take my cat anyplace else. The care that Dr. Dentler has given Dusty has alwaus been more than first class all the way and I couldn't recommend her or her staff any more highly.

For those considering the clinic, don't listen to these lone negative voices posted here.

I took my sick parakeet to Dr Allen and he and the assistants were great. He listened to all my complaints and answered all my questions. He spent a lot of time with us. He's obviously very caring and compassionate. The price was right as well - compared to twice as much just to walk in the door at an aviary vet. And when I needed a follow up visit and there wasn't a time slot available, they worked me in.

My Persian cat Chloe who was previously diagnosed with hyperthyroidism was losing weight and vomiting for days. I met a woman in the grocery store who highly recommended Dr. Allen of Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic. Before going to Dr. Allen though, I called him and I explained the case to him and was impressed by how he spoke with me on the phone. He ended up telling me he thought my little Chloe might have diabetes. He asked me to bring her in and I did. Sure enough, Dr. Allen was right. I wished I had only known about him before because I would have taken Chloe to him from day one and saved a lot of money and heartache. After diagnosing Chloe, Dr. Allen gave her insulin, stabilized her and now my little Chloe is back to normal and is doing fantastic. Also, the last 4 tests indicate that she does not have hyperthyroidism anymore. I totally recommend Dr. Allen and the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic staff.

Despite the enormous convenience of proximity to my home I will NOT return to the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic. I think their doctors are well trained and care for the animals BUT I was charged for procedures I was not aware I was initiating. Having a pet is expensive and anything we do for them costs money, it is the responsibility of owners to always inquire what procedures and what costs we will be incurring but that can only happen with the help of vets office to be honest and clear. I asked for a health certificate which I thought would not cost anything and I walked out with an $85 bill. NOT cool.

If you are looking for a compassionate and knowledgable Veterinarian, then Dr. Allen is your Doctor. A friend of a friend recommended him to me because I had a horrible experience with another clinic and couldn't bear risking taking my best friend, my english bulldog George, to another bad Vet. Dr. Allen took his time and explained to me the causes of my dog's skin condition; I had a ton of questions and he was so patient and understanding and made sure all my questions were answered. Because he spent so much time with me, I felt a little bit guilty when I saw all the other clients waiting in the waiting room just for him. He sure seems to have a following. George is now in perfect condition and I have no one to thank but Dr. Allen. I've been to many Vets in my lifetime and have to say, he is definitely, by far, the best.

Pros: Dr. Allen

You have to be kidding me that this place is rated over four stars, me and my girlfriend brought our dog in who has a post-surgical infection on her foot and needs a regular bandage changing. We were staying at her parents in Brooklyn and this place happens to be around the corner so we decided to take her here instead of going all the way into Manhattan for such a little procedure. BIG MISTAKE. Our appointment was for 1:30 and the doctor didn't see us until 4. We were even early, what a joke! Once we were finally taken in we had to wait almost half an hour for a simple bandage change from a particularly rude and unfriendly staff. On top of all this the backroom was filthy and reeked of Chinese food, we both cringed at the fact that our baby had to go back there for the changing. While we were there a man who brought his cat in for a 2 PM appointment and was still in waiting to see the doctor when we left, complained and rather than getting any sort of sympathy was scolded by the receptionist for complaining! What a joke, take your dog ANYWHERE else. We would have saved an hour going to Manhattan! By the way the bandaging for some reason cost $70...right...

Shortly after we moved here, my 16 year-old cat started losing weight and throwing up. I called the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic, which was just a few blocks from our apartment, and the receptionist was able to schedule an appointment only 3 hours later. We come in every other day to get fluids for her kidney disease, and the tech, Sherly, is wonderful with her. In fact, we're hiring her to care for our pets while we're out of town. Dr. Allen always stops in to say hello and answer any questions. He is very kind to my cat and always takes the time to answer all of my questions. The receptionist, Camille, is very friendly. I've had a great experience with Dr. Allen and the staff and would highly recommend him.

Pros: friendly vet and staff, nice waiting area, convenient location

Cons: prices of meds, as they can be found online for much less

We have been using the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic for our two dogs for 9 1/2 years. Dr. Pamella Dendtler has spectacular academic and clinical training, and she stays fully current with preventive care as well. One of her associates, Dr. Green, also expert, also is knowledgeable about alternative medicine applied to veterinary practice. The clinic cares about your pets, and you, and makes every effort to accommodate emergencies, urgencies and critical care, alongside animal maintenance care. They are compassionate, smart and very effective, and our dogs think she and they are the best, too.

I went to Dr. Dentler seeking a second opinion on my cat ?? my former vet said she needed 3 teeth pulled, that she was suffering from hyperthyroidism ?? all of which I knew could not be true, looking at my cat. Happily, Dr. Dentler and her staff listened to me (as panicked as I was) then performed the most thorough examination my cat has ever received.

They explained all the possibilities, recommended tests instead of procedures and lo and behold: Dr. Dentler disproved everything my old vet said. She has saved my cat from being horribly mis-medicated and needlessly operated upon, AND she figured out what was actually going on: a simple case of bartonella . I am now transferring all of my pets to her care gladly.

Dr. Dendtler has been my veterinarian since i moved back to NYC in Dec 1998. Let me say that i would never consider going to any other vet. When my cat Norton was ill, she came in to see him on her own time. She did this despite the fact that she was on her way to see her own mother, who was ill herself. Norton had a history of being "nasty" in his charts, hissing at the vets. Not Doc! When i had to put him down, she spent time with me and cried with me. Alice is 20+ years old, and i think that her age speaks for itself. We have had our ups and downs, but i have Doc to thank for knowing exactly what to do each time. The diagnosis was always on target and Alice always bounced back. Dr. Dendtler gave me my other cat Felix, and the entire staff is his Godparent. My cats couldnt be loved more.
I have to say that the clinic is not convenient for me to get to. i live a good half hour away without traffic, but i would never think of going anywhere else. This past year i had the pleasure of having Dr. Dendtler and one of the staff attend my wedding. It is very hurtful to read such horrible things that people have written. She is a good Christian woman with incredible values. The lucky ones will be those who trust Dr. Dendtler.

I have referred at least 50 or 60 clients to this most efficient, caring, and loving woman over this 8 plus years, as have many other petcare professionals I know.

One or two clients have complained in all these years, both were irresponsible pet owners, who waited too late, did not take proper care of their pets, and DID NOT WANT to hear it!

All of the RESPONSIBLE persons I've sent to Dr.Pamela Dentler, and her caring staff, have loved the care and knowledge they were able to attain there. All of which, continue to go there on a regular basis, As do I!

Before you believe all this crap, written probably by some Quack, who could not manipulate Pamela Dentler to do their bidding, or agree with their personal diagnosis, I suggest you meet her!

Go there, ring the bell, ask for Dr. Dentler, and or when she will be there, and ask to meet her, speak with her for five minutes, which I am sure she will be willing, as, that is the kind of person she is, and see what YOU think!

Then, you may agree that others, less kind, talented, caring, and knowledgable, would be jealous enough to print such GARBAGE
about a woman who would never speak unkindly about anyone!

You would never catch her leaving such angry ,jealous blogs!

I recently had to put down my 10 year old retriever, and I'm so glad I took him to The Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic. I hadn't been there before, but they acted like we had been patients for years, and their handling of the situation was so kind. They were patient and loving and did everything they could to make my beloved dog's passing as peaceful as it could be. I plan to get a rescue lab and now I don't have to search for a vet. Dr. Dendtler's calm and obvious expertise inspires confidence.

I recently moved to Brooklyn from Colorado and both my cocker spaniels picked up a serious infection shortly after the move. Dr. Dendtler correctly identified it right away and was able to prescribe the right antibiotics?which was important in a situation that was rapidly becoming urgent. I'm grateful to her for getting me in right away and getting to the bottom of problem quickly. I thank her, and so do Tyra and Petey. Now that they're recovered and going everyday to Prospect Park, they think Park Slope is awesome.

Pros: diagnostic skill, caring attention

.

The negative reviews here are shocking to me?surely these people haven't been going to the vet I've been seeing for so many years. Dr. Dentler is highly skilled and thorough, always gentle, and, most important, gets it right about 99% of the time. Her diagnoses have always been accurate and her treatments have always worked. My cats are unusually old, and whereas they might have good genes, I largely attribute their good health to Dr. Dentler.

Perhaps most surprising in some of the reviews posted is impressions of the support staff. They are great. First of all, Dr. Dentler is well-staffed?there are enough good technicians, which isn't always true at veterinarian practices. There seems to be low turnover among her staff, which always says something. One of her techs, Sherly, gives my cat meds when I'm away and she's terrific. They are ALWAYS friendly and professional. I just don't get it.

I've also seen Dr. Green twice and liked her a lot.

It's true there is sometimes a wait, but it's a busy practice and Dr. Dentler takes time with animals, so it's worth the wait. I've had worse waits among people doctors.

I couldn't recommend this practice more highly. Please don't be dissuaded by some isolated poor experiences.

The negative reviews here are shocking to me?surely these people haven't been going to the vet I've been seeing for so many years. Dr. Dentler is highly skilled and thorough, always gentle, and, most important, gets it right about 99% of the time. Her diagnoses have always been accurate and her treatments have always worked. My cats are unusually old, and whereas they might have good genes, I largely attribute their good health to Dr. Dentler.

Pros: top-notch care, attentiveness

The Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic took care of my cat Sadie for 16 years, from her kittenhood on. Dr. Dendtler nipped any serious problem in the bud, always kept Sadie in excellent shape. I also found her to be helpful with behavior problems (like Sadie's scratching anywhere but her scratching post). Very sadly, Sadie got incurable liver cancer. Dr. Dendtler did everything she could to make her comfortable and did not recommend any intrusive or unnecessary measures (as I've heard vets sometimes do at the end). It has been clear throughout the years that Dr. Dendtler always had Sadie's best interests in mind?and at heart. I have had a couple of long waits, but not on a regular basis. It's the downside of her popularity?but the popularity itself is clearly justified.

Last year I adopted a stray with a lot of health problems, especially skin problems. I took her to the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic and saw, on different occasions, both Dr. Dendtler and Dr. Green. They worked together to get my dog into terrific shape?I didn't think she'd ever be this healthy. I was particularly impressed with the many notes they took, and how each reviewed each other,s so as to stay on top of my dog's latest care. The shelter I got her from was pretty bad, and if Dendtler et al can take a sick dog and make her this healthy and happy, you can't ask for more.

I've been taking Lila, my border collie mix, to Dr. Dendtler for about seven years, and have always been happy with Sixth Ave. Clinic. She is a wonderful combination of serious and warm, and she's gotten Lila through a couple of serious illnesses with flying colors. One things I've always been particularly impressed with is her responsiveness to calls. Even if she's just giving me results of routine tests, she'll call back on the same day?often at night before she leaves. Practice is great.

My eighteen-year experience with Dr. Dendtler and the staff at the Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic has been absolutely wonderful. When I got two kittens eighteen years ago, I took then to Dr. Dendtler on the recommendation of a friend. Dr. Dendtler has provided superb and sensitive care to them over all of these years. She is thorough, caring, more knowledgeable than other veterinarians I had used with previous pets before going to her, and always takes her time to answer my questions and concerns. If I call for any reason, she returns the call the same day. Both of my cats survived, with excellent quality of life, for so many years due to her care, professionalism, and diligence. Sadly, one of them had to be put to sleep a few weeks ago. At my request, Dr. Dendtler personally came to the apartment in order to do this. At such a sad time for me, she was the most caring, concerned, comforting, and gentle veterinarian I can ever imagine having. Her staff has been nothing but kind, efficient, and attentive. When I go on vacation, I have one of her veterinary technicians come in to take care of my surviving cat. I trust Dr. Dendtler and her staff, including her associate, Dr. Green, and would not take my pets to any other clinic.

I recently moved to Brooklyn from Colorado and both my cocker spaniels picked up a serious infection shortly after the move. Dr. Dendtler correctly identified it right away and was able to prescribe the right antibiotics??which was important in a situation that was rapidly becoming urgent. I'm grateful to her for getting me in right away and getting to the bottom of problem quickly. I thank her, and so do Tyra and Petey. Now that they're recovered and going everyday to Prospect Park, they think Park Slope is awesome.

I recently had to put down my 10 year old retriever, and I'm so glad I took him to The Sixth Avenue Animal Clinic. I hadn't been there before, but they acted like we had been patients for years, and their handling of the situation was so kind. They were patient and loving and did everything they could to make my beloved dog's passing as peaceful as it could be. I plan to get a rescue lab and now I don't have to search for a vet. Dr. Dendtler's calm and obvious expertise inspires confidence.

I am completely mystified and shocked at the bad reviews given to the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic. The descriptions do not fit my experience with Dr. Dendtler and her staff over the years. I have been a client for more than 20 years and during this time, I have mothered 11 cats and one dog. Dr. Dendtler has seen me through the various illnesses and deaths of eight. From my very first visit to the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic, Dr. Dendtler created a feeling of total faith and trust through her caring and compassionate manner of dealing with my sick baby and understanding how much I love and feared losing her. I had been raised with pets, but She Boo Boo was the first cat I had mothered as an adult and had been raised along with my two sons as if she, too, were my child. She was more than precious to me ?? when she became ill, I transformed my bedroom into a hospice for her and carried her from room to room on a white satin pillow to conserve her strength. So you see, I would never has entrusted her health and well-being to just anyone. Dr. Dendtler and her staff have proven themselves to be more than worthy of caring for my babies. When my one and only dog, Sport, became ill and subsequently passed away, Dr. Dendtler got me through one of the worst days of my life. She listened as I expressed my anger about his death, consoled me as I cried, and patiently let me recount the many happy years we had had together. To this day, she still remembers She Boo Boo and Sport and speaks fondly of her time with them. Since the deaths of She Boo Boo and Sport, I have lost six more babies. After calling my sons, Dr. Dendtler and her staff are my next call because I know they care and would want to know as soon as possible. I can count the minutes until my telephone rings and Dr. Dendtler is on the other end expressing her condolences and asking if I am alright. Within days, I can rest assured a personalized, handwritten sympathy card will arrive in the mail which will bring tears to my eyes with the compassion it shows. I still carry the last card I received in my handbag and take it out and read it every now and then because it expresses so closely how I felt about my baby, Bear. The words tell me that Dr. Dendtler and her staff loved and cared for Bear almost as much as I did. I could go on and on about the love and care all 12 of my babies have received at the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic, but I would just be repeating myself. Suffice it to say, my years there have been wonderful. Dr. Dendtler and her staff have mastered the art of being both totally professional and caring and compassionate at the same time. Although I have observed them being disrespected at various times, I have never seen or heard them respond in kind. Everyone remembers their patients?? names and greets them with smiles and kind, soothing words. I look forward to many more years with Dr. Dendtler and the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic and will continue to recommend them to family and friends.

Some of these 'negative' comments about this clinic amaze me. It sounds like the pet owner were more upset over experience (and their issues) than the animal. These people and this clinic is a very good place to take your pet. I brought my puppy in for a check-up. While we were waiting in the very clean waiting room then exam room the nurse was nice enough to explain that an elder and very sick cat was being put to asleep (per the owners request) and that they might be a little late due to the sensitive nature of the event. I appreciated that. Not to mention I saw them consoling the woman who was clearly sad over the pets demise.

They absolutely let me hold my pet as much as possible (until he needed his shot) and they were about as warm and personable with him as I had hoped they would be. I noticed some people in the waiting room coming in with attitudes with their pets.

Before I left with my Pup, the nurse explained (as I was the last appointment of the day) that they (the staff/vet doctor) would be staying late because someone brought in a cat that they thought had a minor problem when it needed a full fledged operation which was scheduled for the next day. The doctor said the cat would not make it so they all agreed to stay that night to get the operation done. If that is not quality service then I don't know what is~!

Terrible -- the worst vet vet you could ever have the misfurtune of choosing. Instead of patronizing 6th Ave Animal Clinic (which is just a few blocks from my apartment) I take my cat to see Dr. Diaz at WILLIAMSBURG ANIMAL CLINIC - he is fablulous and better with animals.

I brought my cat to 6th Ave Animal Clinic to treat a urinary tract ailment, and while we were waiting to see the vet he lost control of his bladder while still inside his carrier. The staff told me they would take him where he would be more comfortable while we waited to see the vet -- but in reality they shoved his carrier into a dark corner in a storage room, where he was left to sit for over an hour in his own urine while I waited unaware in the lobby. When the vet did finally see us, she made it very clear that she was busy and that she disliked my cat. She also used an alarmist approach to scare me into buying every expensive treatment under the sun before she finally dismissed us with a prescription for a generic antibiotic -- only after I finally told her what my budget would allow.

Don't bring your baby here under any circumastances.

I took my kitten to be spayed. When I went to pick her up the next day, the vet tech had let her escape and during the long time that it took to catch her she pulled out one of the staples on her lower abdomen where they closed her up. They told us we could take her home (with an open stomach- about 1cm), horrible advice, they shouldn't have even offered that as an option. The only other option was to keep her there another traumatizing night with a cone on her head, and they had the audacity to tell us we'd have to pay for it.

I only took her there because it was too expensive for me to have her spayed at my usual vet. but if I had known there would be this much trouble, I would have taken on extra hours and work and tried to rough it somehow.

I've given this place one chance to look at my cat, and they failed to have decent bedside manner, so I took her health elsewhere. After buying cat food from them twice (only because they were conveniently close to me), this incredibly rude staff has forced me to be more interested in walking five miles in the rain rather than to seeing them again. The woman at the front claimed that I have to provide a prescription to buy her food (which I understand if it was necessary) and a long winded speech that I should have know that (which was condescending and rude, in her tone). After I explained that her fellow staff members have sold it to me twice she explained that it's their policy and she is now enforcing it. I don't really care, I can buy the food elsewhere, but if my animal was a patient there, I would certainly be concerned with their consistency on how they "enforce" things. By the way, their bedside manner is as crappy as their costumer service. I did call to share my aggrevation with the woman at the counter and how my pet was a former patient, and the last thing she said to me was "I have to let you go and help some customers that matter." I guess they were paying customers. May I refer Park Slope Veterinary Care at 413 Fifth Avenue Brooklyn. Great place!

I took a cat that i had rescued to 6th avenue completely as a walk in...literally walked in right off the subway and was seen very very soon after i walked in the door. my cat, monday, was seen by dr green, who was incredibly friendly and answered all of my questions. true, they are a little bit on the expensive side...and while i dont know much about dr dentler other than the negative reviews i have seen here, i wouldnt consider taking my cat to anyone but dr green at the 6th avenue animal clinic.

I took my poodle to Dr. Dendtler many years ago. She recommended a great deal of cyst biopsies on my dog and charged me over a thousand dollars to do them. The surgeon who actually performed the procedure seemed totally clueless (I can't believe I allowed the procedure to go forward). In the end, my dog died (she had to be put down at another vet). In the meanwhile, I found Dr. Dendtler to be consdescending and anything but friendly. I believe I was ripped off. Stay away from this rip-off!

I took our kittens here for their first check-up and the staff and vets were loving and thorough.

Meanwhile, my husband convinced me to find a cat-only boarding place, very posh, very pricey, elsewherewhen we traveled, so the cats wouldn't be frightened. Well, we got them back with ear mites! 6th Avenue took care of on our next visit.

Same goes for pet grooming. We go regularly to get their nails clipped. When we went to a pet groomer, he had to put a hood over the cats to do their nails and they practically jumped to the ceiling. At 6th Avenue, they are so gentle that our cats practically purr while they're doing it.

We love the place. Wouldn't go anywhere else and we are absolutely crazy about our cats--treat them like our babies....

Highly recommend it....Mama Katz in Fort Greene

When my dog at the age of 12 started drinking massive amounts of water one day I knew something was wrong. We had just moved to the neighborhood and The Sixth Ave Clinic was 3 blocks away. I called the clinic and got her in right away to see Dr. Dentler. When I returned later that day to pick her up Dr. Dentler informed me that her test results indicated that she had several types of cancer, her liver, spleen and kidneys were swollen and that she was going to die. I needed to bring her back the following day for a sonogram. After the sonogram, the exam only detected a problem with one of her kidneys and I was handed a thousand dollar bill. I hired a car service and took my dog into the City to visit Dr. Ted Weiner at Gotham Animal Clinic, her vet of 10 years. We had all the paperwork from Sixth Ave. Clinic faxed over so he could review it. He then conducted testing of his own and apparently a miracle happened. Her results were completely normal and she did not have cancer. I switched her food over to Science Hill K/D low protein formula and my baby girl lived to 14 and a 1/2. I can't begin to tell you the panic and pain I suffered from the false information Dentler threw at me with no sensitivity or compassion what soever. I think she is one of the worst vets in the City and I would not believe a word she says!

We will never trust our dog with 6th ave. clinic again. While trying to get some simple paperwork for our dog I encountered an extremely rude receptionist who raised her voice and was patronizing. We never had a problem with Dr. Dentler at our previous 2 checkups other than her cold attitude but her staff is an extention of herself and they are absolutely terrible. The woman I was forced to speak with over and over was totally unaware of my dog's case yet spoke to me like I was an idiot. She had absolutely no manners and made this already difficult time worse. I can't even imagine what the conditions are like for animals that have to spend time in this clinic wiothout their owners. I would never refer anyone to this office. Overpriced. Hateful staff. We can do much better for our pets.

I know several people have written great things about this clinic, and that's why I took my dog there. I must tell you after having a vet in manhattan (east harlem) 6th Avenue clinic does not compare. They don't let you hold and console your pet while they are examining him/her. The vet. told me to stand out of the way. The advice given for my dog's laceration was to shave down the area and give him medicine. The reason my dog had a mild infection was due to his scratching the area. I asked for an elizabethan cone for his head to prevent him from irritating the area, and the vets said "no the medicine will stop him from itching". I asked for the cone anyway because as soon as we left the dirty and dingy examining room and went into the hot waiting room my dog started itching the area. It's now 3 days later and not only did the prescription not stop the itching, but my dog has figured out a way to itch inside the cone, meaning it's severely agitating him. I called the office's secretary and she said "oh it's only sunday, the medicine takes time to work." That's not what the vet said. He said it would work "a few hours after we left". I asked to have the vet call our home and wanted to leave 2 numbers. She said "the vet isn't going to call three numbers." She was rude and obnoxious. Don't let the letters and photos fool you. There are offices all over the place, and from experience, this one isn't the one to bring your pets.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Dendtler as she was answering questions at a street fair many years ago. In our brief conversation as a new pet owner, I knew that I had struck gold with her. I have been coming to the 6th Ave. Animal Clinic ever since and have gotten nothing but the best care for my growing family of animals (2 dogs a rabbit and a bird). Her staff is very caring and Dr. Dendtler truly treats my pets as if they are her own. One Thursday evening when she was not on duty I was forced to take my dog to another local office where I received inferior care for my little one and was glad to being him to Dr. D. the next day. At that visit I noticed that the prices are comparable to those of the 6th Ave Animal clinic yet they force you to have extra tests taken that seem unnecessary driving the bill up and diagnosing nothing. I would NEVER dream of going anywhere else!

Pros: Everything is a delight! It is worth the wait

Cons: The wait can be a little long

It seems to me that the reviewer who had such a bad experience with this office must have caught the staff on a bad day. I've been taking my cat there for a while now, and I've never had any complaints except for price. Their rates really are pretty high, but I suppose good care is worth it. Their receptionists are always very polite, and the veterinarian is friendly and seems to know what she's doing. This is definitely not a bad place at all.

This clinic is very good. It has clean and sterile rooms with high-tech equipment. The waiting rooms are very comfortable and cozy. My dog usually is very hyper but when she was there she was as calm as a rainbow. The vets are also nice. The vets were kind to my pet and me. The receptionist found my name quickly too. You also don't have to wait too long.

My husband and i just moved to Brooklyn and the previous couple whose apartment we moved into used the 6th Avenue Clinic for their cats. We thought we'd do the same and take our cat there. HUGE MISTAKE. Our appointment was at 12:45pm (we were on time) and we didnt get called in until 2PM. We were taken to our examination room and had to wait yet another 1/2 hour for the doctor to actually get to us. My cat who is extremely lovable and docile when he goes to the vet was treated harshly and out of the blue exploded into a blind fighting rage. The staff scared him so much and after making the poor animal wait that long to be seen by the doctor, we were slapped with a $130 bill. This was just a simple check up by the way. We finally left the clinic at 3:15 PM . Waste of my whole day. Too much stress and anxiety for what was to be a simple yearly exam. NEVER AGAIN.

I was worried when I read some of the negative reviews here, but 6th Avenue Animal Clinic was able to make a last-minute appointment for my sick kitten. They treated him gently, gave me good information about how to take care of him, and examined him to answer my tangential questions about whether his weight and ears seemed okay. The vet, whose name I unfortunately do not remember (not Dr. Dendtler), was very sweet and patient- I was the bundle of nerves you might expect of a brand-new cat owner facing the first kitty sickness.

My cat gets spooked at the vets and must be handled with great care. a previous vet at 6th Ave., Dr. Lowenstein was able to do so. However, he is now gone. Dr. Dentler, the primary vet there, made her personal distaste for my cat clear enough that I decided to find another practice. I'm glad that I did becasue I found Hope Veterinary, on Atlantic Ave. The staff at Hope has been incredibly patient, diligent, and compassionate in my cat's care. I would urge any pet owner to avoid 6th Ave. I recommend Hope, however, without reservations.
