I have always loved the care my animals have received and take all my animals there. Today I got a new puppy and called to schedule an appointment and was informed I needed to take my business elsewhere because I had a bill that was sent to collections and they do not see ANYBODY who has been sent to collections. I told her the bill had been paid and she said that did not matter. Wow I am very sad and angry. The total bill that was sent to collections was Less than $25.00. Twenty Five dollars! Twenty five dollars that I paid back! WOW Not going to tell anybody else to go there I think that's ridiculous!

I just read a poor review of Tualatin Animal Clinic which prompted me to write. We have been using this clinic since they first opened, thirty some years ago. We are account #200, second client. We have taken seven dogs and six cats to them for care over the years. Dr. Ghitea has seen three of our dogs and three of our cats. We have never, not even once felt our animals have had less than excellent care. We have always lived in Wilsonville, seven miles away and have several high quality vetranarians within a mile of our home. We would never consider another vet, only under emergency conditions have we gone to Dove Lewis or Tualatin Emergency Clinic. I feel very sorry for the one person who felt her animal was mistreated, but this is not the norm and I would wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone. Friends of ours from Portland will drive the 20 miles for this excellent care, that must say something.

If you are considering a vet for your dog, I strongly urge you to stay away from this "Animal Clinic." I had my dog under there care recently for two minor procedures. I could go on for pages about the errors and mistakes that were made. Long story short there malpractice has lead to my dog almost losing his life if it were not for the care of ANOTHER VET. There prices are cheap but they will not provide you with anything but hassle, headache, and possible harm to your pet as was the case with mine. If you care about your pet and are considering going here, you really owe it to yourself and pet to look elsewhere. I am truly concerned for anyone who takes there animal here.

I just started my very old dog on very conservative doses of rimadyl - half a tab every 2 or 3 days. I had an old prescription that I rarely used, but it was almost gone. I called to see if I could get a refill of a prescription that was written 04/08. The front desk person said he would have to see my dog before refilling, and when I asked to speak to Dr. Bertelson, he got on the phone and immediately started yelling without even saying hello. "THIS IS RIDICULOUS... I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU RIMADYL WITHOUT SEEING YOUR DOG... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING". And he went on in a tirade so that I couldn't even speak. I asked him if I could speak and he said, "NO, BECAUSE I AM HANGING UP RIGHT NOW!!!" This was so out of the blue - I thought we had a good relationship and I've never caused any problems. He could have talked to me calmly, telling me why he wouldn't and then telling me no himself. My husband, who is a pediatrician, was standing there and heard the whole thing. He said that he has never in all his years of practice heard a doctor talk to a family like that and was almost speechless, which is rare for my husband. It was just so strange to come out of the blue with nothing to precipitate other than me asking for a refill without seeing the dog first. My dog, by the way, is very healthy other than a sore back.

On another note, my 16 yo poodle was losing weight back in Sept. Dr. Bertelson took many blood tests and sent us to a specialist for more work and an ultrasound because one level was high. The specialist said that no, that level wasn't high and that it was a marketing ploy by the developer of the specialized test that Dr. Bertelson used. This was after $1,000 of tests and ultrasound. Turns out, his teeth were just bad, so I took him to a animal dentist and she removed 17 teeth. I had worked hard to keep his teeth clean and had them cleaned every 4-6 months but he had an autoimmune disease to his own plaque. He's back to being his old self and his only problem is a bad back which is why he needs the rimadyl. In a 16 yo dog, the concern of liver problems with rimadyl isn't an issue because it takes years of rimadyl overuse to cause liver issues. I'm just trying to keep him comfortable during the last years of his life and I will not spend another dime at this office. I never complained about this situation to the doctor - that he caused me to spend $1,000 for a dog that simply needed his teeth removed, which of course, was another $1,200.

I have to say that the amount of compassion shown to my very sick dog has been amazing.
The entire staff is friendly and seems genuinely concerned. They have convenient hours and it's relatively easy to get an appointment.

I absolutely love Dr Ghitea and the rest of the staff at Tualatin Animal Clinic. I am an animal lover, and I always have a couple dogs and cats as part of the family. The staff at Tualatin Animal Clinic understands that these furry little ones are key family members, and treat them as such. Having to put an ailing animal down is never a pleasant experience, but the caring and understanding, and the follow up condolences, were so much appreciated. Prices are very reasonable, and I have never felt that uneeded procedures or tests were recommended. It may not be a high-tech clinic, but the care is based on the needs of the animal, and the needs of that animals guardian.

If you are looking for a caring, knowledgeable, and talented vet, I highly recommend the Tualatin Animal Clinic. We've been taking our family pets to this friendly clinic for many years and have always received excellent pet care and treatment. Their prices are very comparable to those "discount" vet clinics, but their demeanor is so much better! Their staff is extremely friendly and supportive. The doctors are very patient and strive to answer any and all questions you may have about your pet's health. They are great about follow up calls and visits and you never feel like you are a bother to them. My pets are happy and healthy and I know the care they receive at Tualatin Animal Clinic plays a part in their vitality.
