After reading the poor reviews, I just can't belive them. I have been a client of LAH for 7 years. They are professionals. I have never been rushed off of the phone or out of the office. I've never had to take my dogs back a second time for the same thing. Surgeries all went well. Also, EVERYONE in the office is friendly and kind to the animals. I've sat in that waiting room many times and never heard anyone complain. I wouldn't think of changing vets.

I got a black lab/pit mix givin to me and decided to have her checked at lehighton vet. Two days before I took her she was out side playing in the snow and started limping on her back leg. When I was their for her visit I asked about her leg and was told it was just a sore leg and she was probably getting aurthritus in it from a previous injury. My dog was only 7m at the time! About a month later her leg was just getting worse and wouldnt walk on it any more,stoped eating so I made another opt. This time when I took her they were just feeling around and said that she had an ACL tear but didnt take x-rays.They had me looking at pictures of the tear in a book bus she would need sergury asap. They also said they couldnt do the sergury at their hospital she would have to go somewhere else and still charged me. It didnt stop their though, I took my dog to Cherryville animal hospital and turns out its not an acl tear it is a birth defect that causes her knee cap to come out of place sometimes that does or does not need sergury depending on the dog and reoccurance of the knee cap. Will not go back their again and am taking out my other dog.

My dog had surgery there and had come home with a large opening on her front paw. Thinking that they might have had an IV in that paw I had asked the vet when I had returned to have stiches removed.Well they had no idea how it got there. They gave all kinds of excuses and had made light of it. Well, it looked nasty and they said I could take some type of powder home to help it heal. When leaving the charged me $24.00 dollars for this powder. They made a mistake with my dog and they have the gull to charge me for medication. I will not take any of my animals there again and I will make sure I will let as many people as I can know NOT to take there beloved pets there

The staff is so friendly and helpful and truly love and care for the animals they treat. They seem to charge fairly low prices for their services and don't try to push selling you things you don't need or want. We've had numerous surgeries and visits with both cats and a dog and we've been very pleased.

We have been taking our 8 month old beagle there for 6 months and the 3rd time we took him there we mentioned that he walked funny. They did nothing. Two weeks ago we took him there again because his walking got worse. They took expensive x-rays and handed me antibiotics and pain pills and said ??see if this works?. I then called to ask to borrow the x-rays the next day and they said no. I did not like that answer, I paid for them so I have the right to sign his records out whenever I want, so I took him for a second opinion. Within 5 minutes of meeting our dog, the new doctor at Homestead, diagnosed him and said he needed to have surgery right away for his Patellas that do not stay in place (a very easy to diagnosis problem). She referred us so a surgeon and he agreed. Now our puppy has to go through 2 major surgeries with a 4 month recovery period. If Lehighton would have diagnosed him sooner he would only have a 2 month recovery. But since they miss diagnosed him his bones grew the wrong way making it a more difficult surgery. If you care about the health of your pet, do not use this vet. Do your research first. If this problem would have been missed all together, our dog would not be able to walk in a few years. Now our dog will develop arthritis before he turns one year old. All because this easy to diagnosis defect was not caught in time by Lehighton Animal Hospital.

I brought my cat there about a year ago and the vet advised my cat, who is a stray that I took in, was pregnant and about 2 weeks away from delivering her kittens. I was advised that she was pregnant with 3 kittens and he would have to perform a late term spaying.

I took the cat to have the surgery done, and after researching late term spaying, I realized there could be complications. I picked her up and took her for a 2nd option. The new vet I took her to, shaved her belly and found out that she already WAS SPAYED! They were going to perform a surgery that was already done!

I will NEVER EVER use the Lehighton Animal Hospital EVER AGAIN!

Three vets and a large staff means you can get in for an appointment fairly quickly. Be prepared for a wait if it is busy. They actually seem to enjoy their work, which is refreshing.
