Allentown is the only place I will ever trust with my four dogs. They always treat them quickly and their prices are impossible to beat!

Messed up my chinchilla's teeth, and now we have to put him down. I would never recommend this company. All they care is about the money and not the welfare of the animals.

I took my dog in for drooling too much I might have thought he had rabies! Concerned about it I took him in to come to find out Kathy told me that My dog didn??t have rabies she asked me a couple of questions that I answered and the reason why was because he had bad breath for quite a while and that tends to hurt certain dogs more than others so she took care of his dental cleaning. I couldn??t recommend her more than a million times. I strongly recommend her and her staff it was a pleasure meeting them.

We brought our dog who seemed to be experiencing kennel cough last night. Before even making the trip to Allentown, we decided to call the place first to see if they thought her cough warranted an emergency. We were immediately transferred to a veterinarian who asked us exceptional questions to determine what was going on with our puppy. He was patient, helpful, kind and even gave a preliminary diagnosis! He suggested we bring her in so we did. Every person we encountered was kind, understanding and knowledgeable. I completely support that. Dr. Kingsley was thorough, patient, and our dog loved her. I wish she could be our regular vet! If we ever need to bring our pets to an animal hospital again, I will certainly go here.

I need to send a huge, huge thank you to the vets & techs at Allentown Animal Clinic! Our curious, lovable 14 month old Golder Retriever Winston decided to eat a small plastic baggie that was blowing in the wind while out playing ball yesterday in the fields. We called the bet and they took us in, gave him some medicine, and back up it came! Thankfully no surgery to have it removed! So if anyone out there is in search of a vet, please keep them in mind and give them a call. They come highly recommended!

Words cannot even describe how grateful we are for your years of service and for the gifts. You certainly did not have to provide for us this past Christmas, but you went out of your way to do so and we are so thankful! This clinic is very lucky to have you all as staff, and we have nothing but amazing experiences. God Bless you all and we wish you great years of business in this community, who values animal care just as much as the importance of human care. We need more people like you all in this world!

I would highly recommend Allentown Animal Clinic to anyone who loves their pets. They saved my little chihuahua's life when he was a puppy. I trust them with both of my chihuahuas. The entire staff are wonderful. Always very caring and courteous. I wouldn't trust my boys to anyone else.

They handled my little brother's mouse perfectly! It was difficult for my brother to see his mouse sick, but they were very gentle with Twitch and efficiently medicated him which must be difficult to do with such small animals. They did their best to figure out what was wrong with the little guy - and they did!

Our beloved dog needed surgery, and Dr. Sawickij arranged to have it done so she could watch her carefully throughout the day. Mazzy had an unusual complication following surgery, and we probably would have lost her if Dr. Sawickij and her staff had not acted quickly to stabilize her and get her to Valley Central Hospital (in one of the tech's own vehicles, while giving her fluids on the way). Dr. Sawickij was in regular contact with Valley Central, called us every day, and made sure we would be able to reach her if needed. Mazzy's hospitalization and her first few days home were very difficult, but we had amazing support from Dr. Sawickij - and Mazzy's surgeon, Dr. Zeltzman, and Dr. Carter, who treated her at Valley Central (both of whom we also cannot say enough good things about!). Mazzy is now completely well, and we just want to thank all the staff at Allentown Animal Clinic for their exceptional skill and how much they care about our girl!

The #1 clinic around for those pet owners unwilling to settle for second best. If you're expecting cheap service and bad medicine, you're in the wrong place (if that's what you're looking for, I recommend Banfield or a VCA). The doctors use state-of-the-art human-grade equipment and treat all customers with respect. If you're tired of your pet being treated like another number, then you NEED to come here! These doctors make time to address your concerns AND give you follow-up calls THEMSELVES! This was the first clinic I have ever been to where the doctors called me instead of some receptionist. Definitely worth every penny!

I can't say enough about the Allentown Animal Clinic. The staff is friendly, caring, and professional. Thanks to my two cats and one accident and illness prone Greyhound, I've gotten to know everyone at the clinic very well.

I have never had a bad experience in the many, many times that I've been at the clinic. Sometimes you don't always get the news that you want to hear - but on those occasions, I'm confident that they're doing or have done everything possible.

Highly Recommended!

My recent dealings with this clinic left me with the genuine feeling that the doctors and staff truly cared for my pet and treated her like she was their own. I was also impressed with their desire to educate me as well as their professional demeanor. I felt welcome, almost like a feeling of personal connection with the staff. I encourage anyone seeking qualified animal care to visit this clinic.

P.S. Thanks AAC, Mya is doing great; I'll definitely be back!

II have been taking my 2 dogs to the Allentown Animal Clinic for 3 years now.They are great.If it were not for Dr.Rutkowski I believe my little chihuahua Rebel would have died.He developed IMHA.His body was killing off his own red blood cells.We did alot of testing,but couldn't find out why..Dr. Rutkowski believes it could have been a reaction to the rabies vaccine.She did come up with the perfect treatment for him.Today because of her he is a happy and healthy dog.I trust them to care for my 2 dogs anyday.the entire staff from the vets to the vet techs.and receptionists are all very courteous and treat my dogs with great care.In fact they get excited just to see them.They always explain all the treatment and cost to me.Any vet care is expensive that is why I get pet insurance for my dogs.When I read all those reviews saying bad things I don't for a minute believe it.When Rebel was sick they called me several times a day with updates on him.They deserve a 5 star rating in my book.If you have a pet and are looking for a vet ,they are the best as far as I am concerned.I have seen every vet in the clinic they are all wonderful.I wouldn't go any place else. .

I recently left another vet and brought my darling Shih Tzu to Allentown Animal Clinic for a check-up teeth cleaning and minor oral surgery. The entire staff was wonderful from the receptionist to the vet techs and the doctor. Everything was explained throughly, the cost was what I had anticipated and the follow up immediate as they called the next day to see how my boy was doing. I thought it was a very professional and competent practice, highly recommended by a good friend. It was also very clean and well kept. The only place my dog ever got fleas was from his prior vet who then charged me a lot of money for medication for not only the dog, but my cat as well.

i have never been to this clinic and after reading the reviews and with them being so mixed, quite frankly, i wouldn't. i adore my pit bull who has needed several surgeries on his legs.

the best ortho is dr. hodges- he works out of the referral center at valley central. he is professional, takes the time to go over everything for you, and even responds to your emails if you have a question reguarding anything afterwards and follows up to see how your animal is doing. i called every vet in the phone book and asked them who the would reccommend as an ortho, all said dr. hodges unless they had their own ortho. even some places when they would say dr. hodges or their ortho and i asked if it was your dog where would you go they said dr. hodges.

if you need an excellant ortho, call valley central and go see him.....

The doctors at this clinic are very knowledgeable and well educated. Most of the vet techs are wonderful and very helpful. Danielle and Jill are my favorites. The prices are a little high, but the quality of the care is worth it. We've used them for small furry animals and dogs, and have been thoroughly impressed.

If you are wanting a pleasant experience, Drs. Forret and Sawekij are wonderful. Dr. Rutkowski is very blunt, matter of fact, and clinical and doesn't have the best bedside manner, to say the least -but she knows her stuff!

For the person on here who was complaining about the need for an emergency appointment for their animal's surgery, they are NOT a pet Emergency Hospital. For that, go to Valley Central or Quakertown. It's not AAC's fault. (Example: if a person you know has heart attack symptoms, you don't take them to your family doctor, you take them to the closest EMERGENCY ROOM.) From our experiences, they try to be as accommodating as possible.

went to the allentown animal clinic with my african grey parrot mingo who was critically ill.Because of serious health related and financial problems I could not afford to have her hospitalized. Drs. Sawickij and Rutkowski were absolutely wonderful as were all the rest of the staff.They would allow us to bring here into the office for subcutaneous fluids when she was dehydrated and treated her with antibiotics and encouraged us to hand feed her at home.I am so grateful for their compassionate and knowledgeable care. They turned what started out as an extremely stressful and scary experience into a wonderful one .I am happy to say mingo is now doing extremely well thanks to everyone at the Allentown Animal Clinic

I have been a client of the Allentown Animal Clinic for over 15 years. Dr. Rutkowski and her staff have been extremely knowledgable as well as compassionate in their care. In all the years that I have been taking my dogs and cats there, I have never experienced any of the negative things mentioned by other reviewers. I have been there for everything from routine checkups to complicated medical issues and Dr Rutkowski never failed to properly diagnose and treat my pets. In addition, client education is extremely important to this clinic. I always left there with a complete understanding of my pet's condition and treatment plan. Recently one of my dogs experienced what I thought was a recurrence of a recent ear infection. I was going out of town on business and time was tight. Dr R felt that it was important to see the dog rather than assume we were dealing with the same thing. Some might think that was just a way to make a couple of dollars when it was not necessary. As it turns out, my dog had an entirely different issue this time and any delay in his treatment would have caused this condition to get much worse. She was right in encouraging us to come in to the clinic to get this checked out. This is just one example of the care that I have received for my pets. I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone looking for top notch care for their pet.

Wonderful!!!!
Dr. Rutkowski has been wonderful every time that we have had our cockatiels seen by her practice. She is very knowledgeable, and took extra time to refresh my bird's memory on perch training (he was just purchased from a pet store, and had not been out of his cage for the entire length of his time there -therefore, he was very hesitant to leave his carrier). He had forgotten the basics of perching on a stick outside of his cage, but after the vet's help, was perching with confidence within minutes. The staff has always been very polite & helpful. They have a loyal customer for life!

He had forgotten the basics of perching on a stick outside of his cage, but after the vet's help, was perching with confidence within minutes. The staff has always been very polite & helpful. They have a loyal customer for life!

I have been a client or Allentown Animal Clinic for about 2 yrs now and have been extremely impressed with their knowledge, expertise, as well as the way they have treated me, my family, and my pets. We have mainly dealt with Dr. Sawickij, but have had no problems with the other 2 Dr's when she wasn't available. Most of my neighbors & my family also go here and none of us have had such experiences that are listed below (I know because I asked prior to this posting.) The staff is friendly (except for the office manager) and the prices are reasonable. Especially when you consider the excellent care. I've heard other people complain about prices at other vets and I recommend Allentown Animal Clinic to them.

I was surprised to read some other reviews of the Allentown Animal Clinic. I have taken my rabbit there for the past 6 years. I have only had wonderful experiences. Although it is only a rabbit and many would believe he doesn't need as much care as a dog or cat, he has overcome many different health issues with the help of the wonderful doctors and staff there. Dr. Elena Sawickij is very knowledgable and shows a lot of care and concern to not only her patients, but their owners as well. The rest of the staff is always available to answer any questions or calm any fears you have about procedures or illnesses. I would recommend them to everyone. As for prices, vet bills do add up quickly, but you would find the same general prices at any other vet. But seriously, how can you put a price on your precious animal? Whether it's $100 or $1000, I'd do whatever it takes to save the life of my pet, and I would only want him in the care of Allentown Animal Clinic. Thank you Dr. Sawickij, Dr. Rutkowski, Dr. Foret and the rest of the staff for your loving care.

I was warned by others that this was not a quality pet care business but I failed to take the advice and learned by first hand experience. Our dog had been treated on two occasions by a Vet (out of state) for itchy/inflamed ear. Treatment was with anti-bacterial ointment. Came here and took the dog to Allentown Animal Clinic because the ailment continued. We advised them that this problem had been ongoing for some time. An anti-bacterial ointment was prescribed. I questioned that since the ointment hasn't solved the problem was there any other treatment options available? Tests/oral meds? I was told no, that ear problems clear up in time. After several months of ointment and frequent ear cleansing by us on an almost daily basis, the problem continued. Returned to the clinic which advised that they needed to flush the dogs ear. The results we were told was that the ear infection or fungus had spread into the inner ear canal. We were told that a sample from the ear discharge was taken and would be tested identifying the precise bacteria then proper medicine could be prescribed which would hopefully help the situation. I immediately thought way back to the first visit when I asked about other treatment options. Now, I asked this Dr. Judith Rutkowski about why we couldn't have had this done way back on the first visit. Her response was, I quote " That's not what we do" . Unbelievable. After spending lots of time researching the issue I learned that although many ear infections clear up, many others can and often enough progress to middle and inner ear infections that can permanently damage the ear and lead to major surgery. Whether it is an ailment in an animal or human being I think most people would agree that a competent , good , doctor would explain all of the treatment options to someone. I gave a follow-up call to this doctor and despite my being polite and courteous she proceeded to become very hostile and arrogant towards me. I was very shocked that a person involved in business with her education could act this way. She honestly left me with the impression that she is a very mentally unstable person. That is truly my opinion. As a business owner, as most everyone would agree, treating customers fairly, courteously and providing a quality service and/or product is the key to a successfull business. In conclusion, I certainly do not recommend anyone bringing their pets to this facility for care. I only wish I would have checked this website first and seen the other negative ratings/remarks about this place.

I called to make an appointment for my cat who was showing (I did not know it at the time but have since researched this extensively) classic systems of Urethral Obstruction, a common yet extremely serious condition that if left untreated within 36 hours, becomes fatal for cats. I called explaining the symptoms (lethargy, cries of pain, frequent unsuccessful attempts to urinate, frequent grooming of the genital area, and vomiting) and asked for an appointment ASAP. I was told that they were booked solid all day but could squeeze me in, in the evening. As my cat continued in agony, I called back and demanded to bring him in for observation or I was going to take him somewhere else. They said I could (for an extra fee). He wasn?t there more than 20 minutes and I got a call from the vet saying he needed IMMEDIATE surgery or he would not make the next couple of hours. The untrained receptionist put my cats life at risk. They later told me it is not uncommon for them to have 1 or 2 ?blocked? cats per week. How is it possible then that I was told to wait all day before bringing him in? They should have seen him immediately or refferd me to an emergency center. There were many other aspects of my cats ordeal that I was very unhappy about that are too lengthy to write here (including the price which was over $1000 that I have since learned is very high). I strongly DO NOT recommend using this vet. Once my cats follow-up is done, I will NOT be back.

They are ok if you're just getting yearly shots. But I definitely wouldn't recommend them for anything else. We took our Sheltie in for cold-like symptoms....they immediately assumed kennel cough without exploring any other possiblities (like allergies, etc). I wasn't impressed with their lack of knowledge and quick decision to say "well, it must be kennel cough." I must add that our Sheltie hadn't coughed at all! It wasn't one of his symptoms.

PROS: ok for basic care
CONS: expensive, not very knowledgable
