    Sad to say, but this place has a priority on sales. Yes, they take adequate care of the pets brought in their doors but they are a place to make money first and foremost. They tacked every possible additional expense onto my bill from additional drugs for my dog, to the ""wellness exam"" which was supposed to give a discount for the vaccines (which were not needed as they had arleady been done!) but the total of the vaccines was far less than the wellness exam. My little girl was there for a simple spay, no complications and she did not get boarded. My fee was $309.00!! We weren't even able to do the laser surgery because they wanted an additional $90 for it. Most vet places these days will do the laser surgery spay, all med included for $100-150. The additional wellness exam that was tacked on was even more unnecessary because my dog had been in the hospital less than a week prior due to a rash. We paid over $220 for her ""exam"" and a urine test. In the process they tried to talk me into an addl $245 worth of xrays to ""rule out"" a condition that her only symptom of that was that she was drinking extra water. They are the nice ""ritzy"" facility on our side of town, but don't expect to get out of there without being nickled and dimed. They will use your love for your pet to guilt you into unnecessary procedures and costs. We WILL NOT be going back, and I will do my best to make sure everyone I know in town doesn't go there either.\r\nLiked: Disliked: \r\n

    If you care about your pet I woud steer clear of this place.\r\n\r\nOn July 21st, 2011 I brought my cat in for a urinary blockage. The staff quickly ushered me into a exam room. They spent less than 2 min diagnosing him and then jumped into money. I was told it was going to cost over $1,000 for a procedure that has a 50% chance of working and the other 50% of cats get the blockage back in about a week. For another very very large sum of money they could rework his parts to where he would not get the blockage again but of course that was not guaranteed either. \r\n\r\nOnce I told her I could not afford $1,000 for something that may not even work, she turned very nasty. Pressuring me into a payment plan and trying to get me to solicit my friends and family to pay for the procedure. She couldn

    Have used this vet clinic for 2 years. Love Dr. Thomas. We go monthly for nail trims and they are great. Love the evening and weekend hours. Plus we have boarded before...good for short time stays and they also have grooming services. Nice place, but a little spendy!
