We adopted a puppy from Scottsville over a year and a half ago. While filling out the adoption paperwork, they informed us that her brother was just put to sleep because he was exposed to and had contracted distemper. Because this had happened to him, they told us our new puppy was also exposed, although she did receive her 1st distemper shot, but to be aware and watch for symptoms. She was a sick little girl, which we knew going into this. They did inform use she was previously on antibiotics for an infection as well as she had kennel cough. So they sent us home with the cough tablets and to check back in 2 weeks. During the 2 weeks her infection was still prevelant, causing discharge from her eyes, nose, and rear end. And her cough was getting worse. So we brought her back. This was our first time meeting the vet and our first impression. It was not good. He never itroduced himself, not even as the doctor! He was sloppy, messy, and unkempt. Anyway, we weren't able to hold our own dog, they had someone else just as creepy doing it. Which I think is a stupid practice. Who knows your animal better than you?

This went on for weeks. Although, the next few visits we were seeing vet techs. They were putting her on the same meds, week after week and it wasn't working. Finally, we took her to our vet and we were done with Scottsville!

Our vet actually talked with us and took the time to think out which antibiotices would work best for her situation. She changed from cough tablets to another medication and told us we could give her robitussin to surpress the cough, just like a child. Even though we paid the adoption fee, we had our dog spayed at our vet's office. We couldn't justify going back to Scottsville and risking her contracting another infection. Especially with the way the Vet at Scottsville presented himself! Ew!

To this day our dog is such a joy to us. And it makes us feel good to know that we were able to get her better care and give her a great life. Don't let these bad reviews stop you from adopting an animal, even from Scottsville. Save them and give them a good life. But be prepared, emotionally and financially. Adopt them and take them to a decent vet. Scottsville is not a place I would recommend to anyone.

Like many other reviewers I adopted a dog from them( at a petsmart in henrietta). I was able to meet a dog i thought was cute. After spending about 30 minutes getting to know him and his brother, we decided to adopt one. We filled out an application handed over cash and that was that, we left with the dog. It was on a sunday so our vet was not open to check references. Luckily, the puppy was going to a good home. We were not informed he was in a litter with parvo until i got home and saw it scribbled on one of the forms. He tested negative but i was still highly concerned. I called to schedule a date to have him neutered and inquired about the parvo comment. He tested positive for worms like most puppies. He was given meds free of charge and sent home. A week later he had kennel cough. A week after that he has worms again. Meds were supplied each time free of charge as well as the visits and his shots. (these were included in the adoption fee) I was talking to a coworker who also adopted from scottsville vet and he told me his dog actually got parvo and was an hour away from death on the weekend after he got him. He had to rush him to emergency vet and about $2700 later his dog is doing great. He was given fluids thru IVs, meds, round the clock care. etc. Scottsville would not reimburse him the money he had to pay. They told him he should've brought him to scottsville 1st thing monday am. Well by then he would be dead. My 2 sisters also adopted dogs from scottsville. They adopted brothers, and their dogs were exposed to parvo also. Both had parasites, worms. I think they need to clean up their facility if every single dog is exposed to parvo, how many die in there on a regular basis?? Ive not heard of other rescue organizations having issues with parvo. Quarantine the dogs when you get them to rule out parvo before you expose everyone else.

The male vet is not very professional. Dresses in sneakers and beat up jeans, doesnt really explain much just does his work and sends you off. When i brought my dog in for his free 2 week check up, i felt like i was annoying the staff. i asked the receptionist for the rabies certificate and tags and she huffed and puffed like as if i was being a real pain. He supposedly received the rabies shot before i adopted him. However, i strongly feel she just made up a certificate ad printed it out. the tag she gave me was right off her desk. maybe im not educated in this process, but it seemed very shady to me. Ive also HEARD that the vet is in it solely for the money. I HEARD that he would take dogs off the street and adopt them out as tho he rescued them. However, no one can confirm the gossip so thats why i say "HEARD". I would never adopt from there again, ever.

Take the time to review the other comments, you will notice a theme there. Dog had parvo, dog was sick after we got him, dog had parasites-mine did too!

That being said, I would never trade my dog for anything, He is such a good boy and is very loving. Hes never been a problem to train, and gets along very well with my 2 other dogs, rott and yorkie. He also does very well with my son who was almost 3 when we adopted our dog. Hes very sweet.

I also adopted my puppy at the end of may 2010, and also received a call saying that one of her puppy mates had been diagnosed with parvo and i took her in and the test was negative. She then got sick a couple weeks later and she had a parasite which they gave me the medicine for free to get rid of it. Other then that I have not had any problems with her. I do however think that the male doctor is to say bluntly a jerk. i brought her in on a saturday because she seemed to have a runny nose and he wouldnt even let me hold her on the table and told me to back away from MY puppy. He seemed to not have a care in her and only wanted to get the exam over with so he could leave right after with a canoe strapped onto his truck.Other then that i think that everyone else in the hospital is very nice and helpful. I would reccomend always going to the girl vet rather then the jerk.

We adopted what appeared to be a healthy puppy on May 21. After about 1-1/2 weeks we were notified that one of her litter mates came down with parvo. Our puppy was scheduled to be spayed on June 4 and since she showed no signs of parvo, they went ahead and did her surgery. Two days later on Sunday morning, the puppy became lethargic and wouldn??t eat. I called Scottsville and was told to bring her in the next day. Later in the day, we decided she was going to make it another day so we brought her into the animal emergency hospital where she was diagnosed with parvo. They admitted her and kept her in quarantine for 4 days. Thankfully, she seems to be doing very well now, but this little puppy has now cost us $2,600. Since our puppy came down with parvo, I found out that at least one other puppy in her litter has parvo as well.
Due to the incubation time of parvo, it seems highly likely that these puppies were infected at Scottsville Animal Hospital, either during their stay before getting adopted or while undergoing surgery. Either way, I will never be going back there.

My husband and I just recently adopted a puppy from Scottsville, and have been nothing but pleased with their care of our little pup! Yes, it was expensive to adopt, but he came with vaccinations, was neutered, had a physical and free two week check-up. When you add up what it would cost to complete all of that independently, it would have been much more. Not only that, but he was a little sick after a few days with us, and they saw him and treated him for free, and gave us the meds he needed for free. They were very honest with us about the fact that he had been treated for a parasite from being a stray before they got him (poor baby), and that he seemed better. When we take him there, the staff remembers him and are so happy to see him, and take fantastic care of him. They are pricey, but our animals aren't just animals, they really are part of our family, and having them cared for by people who clearly care about them is worth every penny.

I found a posting with a very nice picture of the dog that we adopted from them. The dog's story pulled at my heart strings and so we checked into him and ended up adopting. Prior to the adoption I asked so many questions about the dog and his back ground, especially his health because he had been a stray for quite some time and then in different shelters for about a year. They told us that the dog will get a complete physical before he left the shelter and when it was done I was told that dog had a clean bill of health, and so we decided to proceed with the adoption. Within a couple of days one of his eyes began to weep and he was winking a lot. We took him back to the vet and he told us that the dog had trouble with his lower lid, that they were aware of it, and that the dog would need surgery to correct it. The surgery was going to cost us about 3-400 dollars. I was floored and asked why we weren't told this before we adopted. The vet couldn't look at me and said, "Oh well, no good deed goes unpunished." I was so angry. We have since found out that the dog will also need extensive dental work.

I have adopted a cat from Scottsville Vet Hospital and take my dog there as well. They are wonderful to my animals and I believe the prices are comparable to other vets. Yes it does cost a bit more to adopt from them but they have many animals that they have with them for a long time. The cat I adopted from them had been there for over a year before I discovered her. It you think about how much it costs to feed/house/vaccinate one cat for a year and multiply that by the number of other cats they have it adds up. If you look at the same cost per dog that adds up as well. They need to make sure they can continue to maintain there facilities to help other pets.

He is NOT a good vet, nor a good person. The adoption section is a front for him to make money off animals. He WILL put them to sleep if they are not adopted or send them to Lollypop. He has left technicians there alone to do his appointments for him. HE IS A BAD VET, please do your research at the Office of Professions and on the web for veterinary care. Check doctorscorecard.com also for help.

I've been going to Scottsville Hospital for many years and my dog loves it! He gets tons of love and attention, and the prices are fair. They save tons of animals there!!!. They never put the shelter animals to sleep, the staff told me they keep the shelter animals as long as it takes until they find a home.
Dr. Bergash may come across as reserved, but he is VERY kind! I have recommended this hospital and adoption agency to friends and family.

I thought that they were a nice vet hospital but I agree with the other review. Their prices are astronomical. It costs about 200 to adopt a cat from them. They are a no kill but I heard that they pick and choose their animals and if they are there too long they send them to lollipop. I too heard that the vet is not nice and is in it strictly to make money

PROS: Nice looking animals
CONS: Price ot adoption, vet

We adopted a cat here. While they try to tell you it is cheap, it really isn't. It was expensive. There are cheaper places to get one. Also, I have heard horror stories about the Vet. Everyone says he is mean. I don't know this first hand however. One good thing is that they don't kill any of the animals if they aren't adopted after a certain time. However, if they are full then they just don't accept anymore animals.
