I have been going to this vet for about 8 years. Even when I moved about a half an hour away, I continued going here because I genuinely feel the staff and doctors are some of the kindest, most patient, and knowledgeable people in the veterinary field. My pets have thrived under their care, and I don't ever feel pressured to do anything...they always tell me truthfully what they feel needs to be done, whether it costs $30 or $200. I know a lot of people have had experiences with vets who inflate their prices and order unnecessary tests etc., but this is not the case with Shoreland. As long as they are open, I will always make the drive to take my pets there!

my dog and i would never go back to shoreland...sitting in a hot small room listening to the 'boarders" howl in the backround waiting for twenty minutes to be seen by a vet tech, who asked the same questions over and over again. to then wait again in a hot stuffy closet to have a vet tech use such force on my dog for a fecal sample, my dog cinched up and groaned and looked at me like u have got to be kidding me...bring in a stool....we left with our tails between our legs..not our cup of tea...animals at least mine need to be treated gently and a review of procedures ie does this make sense and geez should we airvent the closet we reguire our clients to wait in need to be considered...my dog asked to leave i should have listened sooner.

Shoreland Animal clinic has been a God send to me i have taken many animals to Dr Thorton and Brown. Both dogs and cats and they have always been kind and understanding in the care they have provided and never forcing treatment and respecting my wishes as most of the animals I have brought in have been found on the street and given a good home

This is the best vet(been to several) that I have taken my pets to. Very nice, friendly, try to make the cat or dog comfortable. Staff is understanding and caring.My pets actually like going to this office! They dont push unneeded tests on you, tell you exactly what they would do if it was their own pet. I have had both minor illness and serious with both cats and dogs and wouldnt take mine anywhere else. They will get you in for emergencies also. Dr. Brown, Dr. Riker and all the staff are wonderful!! ( Dont know why anyone would have a negative comment against Shoreland as a Vets office, dont think Id use a vet as a groomer unless it was a medical issue!)

They are the best, I would not go anywhere else either. I thought their prices were very reasonable, you should have had my old Vets if you thought Dr.s were expensive not so . Always getting me in for an appointment at short notice, they always check on your other pets when you have a visit. And they are economical and efficient. My old Vet would pile on the charges ($30 to wrap a shaved leg),that's expensive.
I had to put my cat of 17yrs. to sleep, they made my experience as comfortable and compassionate as possible. Dr.s and the staff were invaluable without question. Soooo gentle. They even sent a card to my house for sympathy for my loss, they understand animal lovers and I appreciate them as many others do. This is the best quality money can buy. You'll never feel like a just a check book.

I have had nothing but good experiences in the few years our cats have been going to Shoreland. The staff really understands just how important our pets our to us, and they treat them like their own. Anytime I have had any questions about procedures, or shots I've received answers that were honest and that I could understand. I recently had a cat undergo surgery and while I was very worried they really made an effort to put me at ease. The cat is healing up well, the aftercare was great and I recommend them to anybody that wants to have a veterinarian that they can trust for the little things like checkups and vaccines to the big things like surgeries.

The staff is extremely friendly but it does not compensate for extremely poor communication. I have not had a dog for 20 years when i was a kid. i do not know what vaccinations are required and relied on the vet to inform me of what was required. After the third time of being turned away for grooming and Kennel b/c dog did not have adequate vaccinations, I decided to post and let everyone know if you are going to use Shoreland....you better be willing to do your own research.

i've been a client of shoreland animal hospital for nearly twenty years now and have never had a bad thing to say about them. the staff is very friendly, to both animals and people alike, and they take special care w/each client. dr. brown and the late dr. thorton have always made me feel at ease by walking me thru the entire process. their rates can be a little steep, but unlike many other vets who rake up their costs w/every little shot and test, shoreland animal hospital never forces unnecessary steps in their treatment. as far as their expertise, i've recommended them to friends that had been to a number of vets and were still left w/o an answer and sure enough, dr. brown and dr. thorton nailed it on their first visit.

Dr. Brown and staff have been wonderful to my two dogs. I have recommended Shoreland Animal Hospital to all of my friends and family. Dr. Brown is very thorough and caring, and his staff is very kind and helpful.

THE STAFF AT SHORELAND ANIMAL HOSPITAL KNOWS HOW TO TREAT THE PETS AND THE CLIENTS. NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES THEY GIVE IT 100%. THEY ARE ALWAYS CALLING TO SEE HOW MY PET IS DOING EVEN AFTER IT HAS BEEN A WEEK SINCE ITS BEEN THERE. YOU CAN GO TO ANOTHER OFFICE FOR A $15.00 OFFICE CALL, BUT YOU WILL NEVER RECEIVE THE GREAT TREATMENT YOU WILL GET HERE. THEY DON'T SEE YOU AS A NUMBER ONLY AS SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO GIVE THEIR PET THE BEST.

I'm very surprised by the other two ratings, but they seem to be based on a single experience. Care for my cats and kittens has been excellent for 9 years. My four previous cats died of natural causes, and my two six-month old kittens have had serious problems due to coming from a shelter. Dr. Brown and Dr. Thornton have provided excellent support during this time. The kittens are doing very well now, due entirely to the care they received. I would not go anywhere else.

To the previous reviewers: perhaps a grooming salon would be better suited to your needs than a veterinarian. I'm also puzzled by your comments on the staff. I've never found them to be anything but supportive and kind, even when I was calling numerous times a day while our kittens were under their care and seriously ill.

PROS: excellent care, caring staff, location.
CONS: a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

I was unhappy when I took my pet to this clinic. I couldn't believe the prices that they charged. 20$ just to clip the nails! This is rediculous!!!! The staff wasn't very friendly, and didn't seem too knowledgeable. I would not take my pets there again.

I have brought my dog in there a few times to have her nails clipped and every single time I take he rin they clip them to short and she bleeds. They dip her nail in this stuff to stop the bleeding but it hurts the dog and I think their staff should have more experience. I worked for a vet for 6 months and I could sdo a better job for free if I had the clippers! I would never take her there for services that were life threatening!

PROS: It's close to my home
CONS: Poor Staff
