Best vet in the area, hands down. If you go there on a regular basis (if you love your animals, you go here. If you don't care and are a cheapskate you go elsewhere) you know the staff and their personal care for the animals. Not everyone who works there is incredibly invested, but most are here to make a career out of their work and all of them bring their own animals. I took my dog here for more than twelve years off and on, I had mixed feelings for awhile. But after going to other vets in the area, I realized they are by far the best. Not only do they do exotics, but they're the only ones who haven't harmed my dogs. They also inadvertently introduced me to my wife.

Ignore the other reviews. Actually, no, listen to them. Take your beloved animal to all the other clinics first. Then take them here. You won't go back to those other places.

And yes, I bet they can be pushy about some things. No different than doctors. Find the right vet, like you find the right doctor. If you don't like a certain doctor schedule with a different one. Same with a vet, optometrist, dentist, etc.

I've never personally felt pressured. But then again, I have always read into canine health and medical journals, case studies, and comparative tests. I do the same for myself and my medication, food, etc.

So if you're someone who eats fast food and smokes cigarettes, sure, take your dog wherever. If you grow your own vegetables, read about nutrition, and do the same for your animals because you're a good pet owner, you'll never go back to the other vets.

Try the others if you don't believe me, then go to Dayton south. You'll see. If you care, that is.

took my blue/gold macaw in for nail and beak trimming. they brought her back to me bloody and her wing was dragging the floor. they tried to convince me she came in that way. after several minutes arguing they finally did x-rays and it showed her wing was broke. they did emergency surgery, put in a rod and pins, kept her for several days, told me she was malnourished and needed their "special" diet, and charged me over $1000.00 for that visit. the bird is 20 yrs old, weighed the same after their diet as she did before, and was playing the day i took her in. they also put a cast on her wing to keep her from plucking it, i asked if it would cause long term affects when removed, they reassured me it wouldn't, but to this day it still hangs down her side. she can never fly again, and they accepted no responsibility for it. we had to go back several more weeks to have cast removed, wing looked at, and recast, another couple hundred each time. oh and took her to another vet after cast was finally off just to find out the cast had caused an infection in the wing and she nearly lost it.

I MIGHT give them another star if my turtle gets better. Our 20+ yr old turtle has been sick recently (mind you, for the first time ever), so like the very caring owners we are, we took it to the only vet around that takes turtles. We waited 45 minutes past our appointment time until they even took the turtle. Another 15 to actually be let into the exam room ourselves, and another 20 until he came in. After throwing a bunch of medical jumbo at us and acting like we were terrible owners for a measly 10 minutes, he made us sit in the room alone for another 20 minutes. Perhaps if the bench was even remotely comfortable I wouldn't have minded so much. Then like other people said, we were then pushed into expensive medications (one, I'm pretty sure is a nasal decongestant...for a turtle).

Took my dog in because he was holding up his left back leg and not putting any weight on it, SHE put my dog on rimadyl and did not give me any side effect warnings. Two weeks later I took him back and all the symptoms were there, but SHE did not follow up up on them! A week later my dog passed away from the side effects of rimadyl. I found out about rimadyl by going to web sight to claim $10.00 coupon for rimadyl...My loving dogs will never see the inside of that building again nor will will they receive any more money from me!!!!! I would advise anybody to stay away from HER and that establishment!!!!!

In my opinion , the care and diagnosis of my pets well being was not satisfactory. Medications were prescribed that made my cat sick . Came in for one thing and left with a 400 bill. Took my cat to another vet 5 days later and my cat did not need any of the meds they prescribed and diagnosis was completely different than the one of DSV clinic. If you want to spend alot of money on alot of medications and procedures not needed than this is the place for you.

I took in a stray, pregnant cat who had ear mites. She gave her kittens and my three dogs ear mites. I've taken them back to Dayton South Vet Clinic three times, spent $700., and they still have ear mites. They did not carry Revolution, and gave half of my animals a one-time treatment, and the other half a treatment that takes a month to work. Of course, they have just kept passing the ear mites back and forth to each other. Their answer was to have me bring the kittens in for more expensive treatments that may or may not work. Revolution would have been the medication to use on my adult animals, since they needed something to protect them from getting the ear mites again.

We got a German Shepherd puppy from a woman who was not a breeder. We didn't need papers, he was just going to be a pet, so I just found an inexpensive puppy and went and picked him up. We took him to the vet shortly thereafter to get him looked at and it turns out he was full of worms. He got an intestinal infection and was in grave condition. He couldn't keep anything down and was severely dehydrated. The Dr. at Dayton South Vet Clinic nurtured him back to health and saved him. Now he is a perfectly health 5 year old German Shepherd Dog and full of energy.

A couple of years ago, my other dog got really sick. I took her to the Emergency Vet. They diagnosed her with a probable blockage in her stomach. They told me to take her to our vet right away, so we took her to Dayton South Vet Clinic. The Dr. there immediately diagnosed her with Pancreatitis. He confirmed it with blood tests. She had to be hospitalized for 5 days and if he had not had the equipment there to diagnose it, it is likely that she would not be with us today. The vet and his staff are very knowledgable and I wouldn't take my pets anywhere else.

The staff is very friendly in this Veterinarian Hospital and the waiting rooms are very spacious. However, aside from its friendly appearance, they often try to push products on you that you dont need. For quick trips to the vet, its a decent enough place but if your pet has a serious illness, I suggest going elsewhere in the Dayton area.
