I have 4 cats and 2 dogs. I just moved to the area and went here off of a neighbor's recommendation. I have seen both Dr. Kuliq and Dr. Thorndyke. Both were very gentle and attentive to all my animals. The tech staff was very friendly and the wait wasn't more than 5 minutes both in and out. I would definately recommend their services to anyone.
This is really an excellent practice. I have taken my two cats here for about 5 years now and I'm always impressed with how gentle these docs are. They listen attentively and answer "dumb owners" questions with a straight face and a good deal of patience. I have learned a lot about what makes my cats "tick".
They are also "open" to the ideas of a more holistic approach to animal care, which isn't usual for the average "pill popper" Vet in my experience.
They never keep us waiting more than 5 minutes, which is important with a wiggly animal in a carrier, and the office staff is friendly; never too busy to answer questions and always seem to be in a good humor. I especially like the separate dog and cat entrances; if you have a dog that likes to chase cats, you don't want them coming face-to-face with them at the Vet's office! If your kitty is afraid of dogs, the last thing you need is to walk through a room filled with dogs with an already nervous cat in the carrier. The office is very well thought out that way. It is always clean and doesn't have any unpleasant odors.
They have recently developed a website where you can go to access information about your pet. If you aren't sure what shots your pup or kitty needs, you can get that information "on line". Maybe more vets are doing this but this was the first time I'd run into it and I love the idea.
The prices are more reasonable than many vets I've been to in the past and I unhesitatingly recommend this practice to anyone who regards their pets as members of their family. I never have the feeling that they are padding their bill with unnecessary items or that they are trying to talk me into other procedures that may not be needed as I have run into with other Vets in my area.
If you are unhappy with your current Vet, please check these people out. I have frequently recommended them to folks who are unhappy with their current Vet.
The only "CON" that I have (and it is personal to me) is that they are over 20 miles from where I live! That distance could mean a matter of "life or death" in an emergency and is something to consider. I would love to see them open a branch closer to my neighborhood.
That shows how good they are!
Pros: Caring staff
