I've been taking my dog Jill and parrot Skittles to this clinic for a few years and I love this place! No appt required, a trained, caring staff, and excellent vet care--what more do you need. Sometimes you wait a long time, sometimes a short time, you just have to manage your expectation and relax.The service and pricing there is worth it to me.. Dr Harlan is a parrot owner, so he's the main reason I go here since there are very few avian vets in OKC. He has also mentored some of his techs to care for birds, like wing trimming etc, and one tech in particular had a parrot before her son developed an allergy and was exceptionally good with my Skittles, I only trust someone who has a parrot to care for them since it can be hard to tell if they're sick or not. I've brought Skittles in a few times for a wing clip/nail trim and she would let me know if there were too many new feathers for an effective clip, but still trim enough so Skittles couldn't fly very well, definitely a safer option. They're also very gentle with my timid 7-lb dog, she loves going there now as opposed to trembling uncontrollably at other places.She's still young and hasn't really had any problems yet. Anyway, I absolutely recommend this place for your pet!

Do not EVER take your dog, cat or bird to Southside Dog, Cat & Bird. The veterinarian there does not care about you or you animal. He removed three of Mac's teeth during a cleaning and at no point were we made aware of this. Ryan noticed that three of his teeth were missing while rubbing Mac's gums. When Ryan asked the vet about it he said that Mac probably felt better after his teeth were removed. He didn't seem to understand that we were upset that he didn't tell us that they removed his teeth. Not cool. The vet was completely unprofessional and the staff there are not any better. Do yourself a favor and never take an animal you love to this clinic.
If you live in Oklahoma City, DO NOT use the Southside Dog Cat & Bird Clinic for your animals.

Roger Harlin, is the most unprofessional and rude person I have the displeasure of dealing with in quite some time.

I brought my dog into the Southside Dog Cat & Bird Clinic have his teeth cleaned. He is a rescue and had some pretty bad teeth. They cleaned his teeth just fine, but they had to remove 3 teeth because of their condition. The problem I have with this vet is at no point in time did they ever call me and tell me he had 3 bad teeth and they never told me they pulled the teeth. I didn't know until the next morning I noticed teeth missing, so when I went to the office to ask about why they were gone, Robert got defensive and rude. When I told him I was upset, the first words he said to me were, "Well there are other places you can go for this kind of service." He also told me that they did me a service for not charging the $13 extraction fee for each tooth. He never did seem to care that I was never informed that teeth were removed and I was upset because of that. He said, "we probably should have said something."

Do not take your animal there because you never know what they will do to them when you're not there.

This is a walk-in clinic. Not an emergency clinic. It is first-come-first serve (although a claw-trim is usualy taken right back and done by a tech). I've had four cats and two dogs spayed or neutered with absolutely no trama or drama. They are compassionate and knowlegable. I drive from Tinker AFB to SS Clinic because they have proven themselves to me, and I am INCREDIBLY picky about both service and tech ability. I've had long waits and short waits. Just depends on who comes in before you and what they require. When it is your turn, you will be afforded their undivided attention. If you do not want to wait long, come early and wait for them to open. However, to blame the clinic or the staff for waiting, as if they were doing it on purpose, is ascinine. I will continue to take me babies to SS Clinic, my Hairless Chinese Crested will be having his claws trimmed today as a matter of fact.

Pros: Knowledgable vets who truly care.

Cons: It's a long drive for us.

I have been a customer of Southside for a while, and referred a friend that her small dog was having a calcium deficiency. She didn't know that they had to remain on Puppy food while nursing puppies.
Vets were great, got her in, got her taken care of, and the vet asked that we leave her until close to close so that she could be watched. Called once to let them know that my friend wanted to leave er overnight (2 hrs before close). Called back at about an 30 minutes before close to see what the difference was in the price for leaving her overnight and the Tech was then very rude, and I told her we would just pick her up. She said, " Well we lock our doors at 7:00 very rudely".
When I got there I told the person I was talking to that whoever I talked to on the phone was very rude. "She said, "That was me and my name is Breanne."
Then when we picked up the dog she said, "If you have a complaint you can file that with Jamie."
She was just very rude, and never understod why..

Pros: We were seen on an emergency basis. Vets were great

Cons: Breanne very rude on phone and in person when confronted

Southside is the best clinic I have ever gone to. I have been going to Southside for 20 years and will never go anywhere else. They were here for me when my st bernard left me with 16 puppies and they will be here for you, also, when you need them. The wait isn't any longer there than I wait at my Dr's office. Go here and you can't go wrong.

Pros: Caring and Loving people all the way thru the office

Cons: No after hours emergency

.

We took 2 of our dogs here to get fixed and they were just awesome. The prices are great and if you cant afford them you do not need to own an animal. They were so caring and explained everything and did great work. I have found my new vet hospital. I love that you dont have to have an appointment for shots.

We have taken our two bassett hounds to other vets and every one of them seems that they just want to scare us and get us to purchase procedures that may not be needed, medicine that is ridiculously expensive, or extended care. That is not the case with Southside, they really care and always greet our pups with a smile and plenty of love. The vets explain to us every possible issue with our dogs and assure us that we are doing a great job raising our boys. That means a lot coming from experts.
I highly recommend Southside for any pet. You may have to wait a little while, but well worth it!!!

Pros: Vets that care and are not just trying to rush you out of the office

Cons: 10 minute wait

.

I have been taking my dogs here since they were babies and they love our pets. They know them by name and make a real effort to make us feel comfortable and have fun with our dogs. Dr. Palmer is the best. He's so generous with his time and really makes sure you understand what is going to happen during surgery or what to give your pet to make them feel better. When we first started going here I called and just asked straigh forward why they were so much cheaper than other places and they said because they want to offer everyone the oppurtuinty to get their pet good health care....so with that being said you might have to wait a little longer...it might not be the best waiting room ever....but you will get good service. Another thing I want to point out is this....if you take good care of your animals Southside Dog Bird and Cat Clinic always makes sure they tell you that....if you don't take good care of your pets you would probably blame anyone you could to make yourself feel better. This is a good vet....my dogs are my family and I wouldn't do anything to hurt my family ever.

Both of my Italian greyhounds are seen here.The vets are very knowlegdeable but the front desk and wait time are lousy. The prices are great and the vets are compassionate. Will continue to take my babies here.

If you love your pet do not take them here.My dog was ran over by a car,he was bleeding in shock and had an obvious broken bone,i called the office before i took him and they assured me they would see him.Upon arrival no one was at the desk but five people walked by numerous times after several attempts we got someone to help us only to tell us that the vet was leaving in 30 min. and would not see my dog,after telling them i just called and was told he would be seen they swore they did not know who told me that and still refused to see my dog.In my opinion thats enough proof to tell me they don't care about the pets they treat.Banfield in S.OKC met us at the door and took him straight back.

I have taken my dogs and Birds to the Southside Dog,cat and bird clinic for years...the prices are good...their staff is friendly and I believe some are students...more than once they have answered my questions and offered me support with my Birds...and dogs...and Im about to take a new puppy to them this week...I agree if you cannot afford their prices and waiting a bit then maybe you shouldn't own animals..they even used to offer boarding about eh only thing I wish they could bring back..But still wouldnt take my babies elsewhere.

I took my cat here to get a rabies vaccination. After waiting 2 1/2 hours, with no end in sight, I finally left! We didn't even get past the waiting room! They did not look very busy, yet it took that long? I would definitely NOT recommend taking your pets here! Unless you can afford to waste an entire afternoon in the waiting room. I would rather pay a little more to get things done quickly! Can't speak of the doctors or assistants. I never got to meet or see any of them!

I actually used to work in this clinic before I joined the army. Not only do they care about the pets that come in they work hard to make sure they are well taken care of. They have affordable prices (if you can't afford them you shouldn't have pets). Dr. Harlin has been a friend of the family for years and does an outstanding job of not only running the clinic but ensuring your pets are cared for.

People! you need to start taking care of your pets the right way instead of blaming it on the place you took it. Southside dog, cat, and bird clinic cares about your animal just as much as you do and they DO NOT want your pet to die, i promise. some people dont think they need to pay any attention to their animals when they come home from surgury, well i got news you do. oh yeah by the way if you cant afford to take care of your animals then you shouldnt get them. Southside does care!

I will not ever take any of my pets here again. My niece took her 8 month old kitten to be spayed and after it was taken home the kitten died. When called them to see what could have happened they said we caused my pet to die. My niece was devastated. That was her baby, Her Gracy baby. She loved that kitten. She was a different type cat she had no tail and she had lost one eye. But she was a very happy and loving kitten till the day she left that clinic. And then they had nerve enough to accuse my 11 year old niece of killing her baby. Please if you care anything about your pets do not take them here

I have used this Veterinary clinic for years , Not only because its convenient , the prices are the best you will find .
For shots , to illnesses this clinic is the best value you will find , call and compare their prices and you will see what i mean.
It is a no frills service , if you want a vet that remembers your dogs name and gives him a lollipop when he is done then you wont be happy.
Ive always gotten great service and quick appointments , they are conveniently located near I-240 and Shields .

PROS: Price , Location
CONS: No Frills
