My dog died a few days after surgery at Animal Ark. The services started fine, consultation was good if not a bit high pressured, surgery was done quick, but the after care was terrible. My dog had a blockage in her bowel, during surgery

i have been going to animal ark a few years now
its a little costly but then i have a few too many animals ..he know his stuff and the staff is helpful and kind, i like that they also match internet prices for products they sell because i have 1 dog that takes medication and if i find it online cheaper i just print out that price and shipping if applicable and they give it to you at this price including flea and heartguard stuff .so that saves on the prices -if im concerned about any of my animals they always squeeze me in
i think its a great place and my animals are not scared either to go there even my dog that takes meds and seems to have to go to see them often actually likes going there ,he has to make the rounds and say hello , and he has had a few things done to him , so even your pet `s will tell u too.. they get 5 stars from me and my chihuahua`s`s`s`,...

Pros: available when needed

Right from the beginning, my experience with Animal Ark was outstanding. Pulling into the parking lot, there's plenty of parking, the grounds are well kept and the building in good shape.

Upon entering, the reception/waiting area is large, clean and orderly.

The entire staff, including reception, veterinarian assistant and Dr. Spindel himself are all very friendly and professional. And they all seemed to love Dakota, my Keeshond.

Dr. Spindel was very friendly and gentle with Dakota, and after an exam, blood test and vaccinations, took a considerable amount of time to chat about various aspects of canine health, including weight & diet, lyme disease and arthritis.

Dakota is pushing 11 years and she's been having a very mild touch of joint pain in her lower front legs over the last year or so, especially when the weather turns for the worst. I explained I purchased a bucket of Synovi G3 shortly after I noticed a slight and occassional limp, and it seemed to help a little.

We discussed this for about 10 minutes, and he recommended keeping her on the Synovi and suggested 5 lbs of weight loss and also informed me of an anti-inflamatory called Deramaxx.

I was extremely pleased with the entire experience, and I have absolutely no reason to even consider a different vet.

There are many veterinaries in the local area. I thought driving by for many years before I got my rescue dog that Animal Ark would be one of those pricy, snooty places.

The morning after I got my dog I realized there was more wrong with her than the obvious obesity. I called and got an appointment with the vet that same day.

After many tests to make sure she was reasonably disease free, weighed, squeezed, tested, poked and prodded I went away feeling that I could care for this dog who needed at that time a lot of care. They clipped her very long nails that were preventing her from walking, prescribed ear meds for 2 types of infection, lotion for two types of skin infections and diet dog food.

I left confident that we received the best care possible.
I have been back a couple of times for checking the ear infection and the monthly weigh-in and am very pleased not only with the veterinarians themselves (we saw two different doctors) but also with the kindness and knowledge of the staff and techs.

I compared prices of heartworm and Advantix(r) on the internet and their prices are right in line.

The building is well maintained, clean and does not smell like a veterinary. I can't say enough about how well my dog is doing as she is walking regularly (so am I), losing weight and much happier than when she came to us less than 2 months ago.

I have never met a vet that understands the problems that rabbits face as well as Dr. Spindel.

I have had a total of seven rabbits. The lifespans of my first rabbits were 2-4 years. Since having started going to Animal Ark, my rabbits have lived happily and healthily 8.5 to 13 years. One of my rabbits is now 9 years old and shows no signs of slowing down. My other rabbit (aged 5) has recently been suffering from intestinal troubles, however has made a full recovery.

Over the years, I have gotten the impression that Dr. Spindel respects my knowledge and understanding of rabbits, and that we are working together to enable the rabbits' natural processes help the rabbits to become well.

I used to own Pet Stores in the Syracuse area. While there are many good qualified vets in the area., you can't go wrong using Animal Ark. Now that I no longer onw Pet Stores I use The animal Ark for my own pets and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a excellent vet. He isn't the sheapest but I wouldn't want to save 20% on a bill only to have my pet not cured and still in pain

Cons: I have to drive to B'ville

I took my ra t Picassa to see Dr. Spindel for a tumor removal. She had been through one already in Buffalo, NY several months ago and had a difficult recovery. I was terrified that her experience the last time would repeat itself but Dr. Spindel assured me that he would take good care of her and she'd be fine. Dr. Spindel took the time to listen to my concerns and told me what to expect. He took her the very same day as he was concerned with how fast it was growing.

Picassa made it through surgery and has had no complications. This I?m confident is due to his expertise and knowledge. The stitches placed were done very well and she has not ripped them out as she has been known to do in the past. I was floored at how different this surgery was than her previous one. The vet certainly does make all the difference.

I have been to several vets in the area that ?see? ra ts but have limited knowledge in their care. Dr. Spindel is by far the best I have found from Syracuse to Buffalo. He puts you at ease from the moment you step through the door and exudes confidence. I am thrilled we have a vet like him in the area and plan to bring all five of my fur kids there in the future.

I was kind of flabbergasted to see a bad review about the Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital?..Must have been one of those pet owners with their very own Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine!

To be 100% honest, I would never consider bringing my Beagle to any other veterinarian?. The first thing you will notice is the exceptional staff. Visit the Animal Ark on more then one occasion and you will soon notice that your pet is greeted by their first name upon entrance. Karen will always ensure that you and your pet feel as comfortable as possible.

Our Beagle is at the time in her life where bumps start to appear, and Mom/Dad feel it necessary to run to the vet on a moments notice?.. After removing a few tumors and growths, we were then lucky enough to experience doggy diabetes?..Dr. Spindell eased all or of worries, and had us administering insulin in no time at all. He even sent us home without a bill after our last visit regarding a mysterious bump near our Beagles eye! (It was only a pimple)

Dr. Spindell and his staff will make it crystal clear that your pet is their number one priority. There are plenty of veterinarians across Central New York who are willing to provide medical treatment to your pet. If you are looking for the one who will care about the well being of your pet as much as you do, then Animal Ark is the place to visit!!!!!

My experience with this vet is not as good as the previous reviewer. He appears to have control issues, and treats the patients (pets) poorly (roughly).. In other words, he is not kind. Also, his scientific method appeared to be lacking.

I was very upset when my cockatiel was brought to an emergency vet over night and diagnosed with an egg that had broken inside of her. She was X-rayed by the ER and I spent a good amount of time and money there. They told me I had to wait it out. Either she passed the pieces of egg or she would die. They told me odds are she would die. Especially after the stress of them handeling her. Great. Lots of fun that night was.

She never passed the egg pieces so I took her to this place the next day. I was greated warmly when I got there, the doctor was incredibly friendly and I felt at ease. He took a quick look at the X-ray and at her and immediately told me she simply had a broken wing and the egg they saw broken inside of her was really just pieces of cuttle bone (something she needs for calcium and eats regularly!). He gave me some calcium drops, told me to change her seed diet to pellets, told me how to prevent her laying if I don't want her to and then sent me on my way. Ultimitely she was perfectly fine and back to herself in no time.

I got great advice, wonderful treatment and left with a smile. =)
