This one is a really bad one! Went there with my dog for a check-up, the personnell was rude and I'm not entirely convinced of the vets competence. Really, just find another one.

HORRIBLE VET!

Unfriendly, unhelpful and just flat out incompetent. Declared my pet to be fine without really looking at it then charged me a hefty sum. Went to another vet, I RECOMMEND YOU TO DO THE SAME! Do not trust these people, they were wrong

I wish I had read these reviews first.

Took my two fancy rats to Dr. Kropp to get rid of bugs in their fur.
She injected them with ivermectin, a horse dewormer. When one rat when blind a few minutes later she said it was from the bath and only temp. When he went into convulsions I called the animal hospital in Whitehall - who said it was the ivermectin and that nothing could be done. "Keep him comfortable until he passes or bring him in and we'll euthanize him". Desperate, I called the manufacturer who said she never should have used that "you can't inject it into DOGS let alone pocket pets!"

When confronted, she tried to convince me that my rats were dead upon arrival at the office and snapped her fingers in my face until I left (yes, I'm serious).
I also called the manufacturer of the medicine she sent them home with - which also would have killed my surviving rat if I'd given it to him.

FIND ANOTHER VET!

Absolutely horrible experience! Brought in my shorthair tabby of 5 years after she'd started acting lethargic and eating much more than usual (with startling weight gain). Receptionist was very short and rude with me. After handing my cat over to the vet (I was NOT allowed to be in the room with my cat during the examination...is this standard practice??) I was told that my cat was gaining because I was feeding it too often, and I should feed her smaller portions. Was basically bullied into co-payment even though I felt her advice was ludicrous as I've had my cat for years with NO prior eating problems. Left and instead visited my brother-in-law's vet for a second opinion....guess who's kitty is pregnant?? What kind of "DOCTOR" can't even tell a pregnant cat from a fat one???? Never coming here again! If you love your pets, you will find a different clinic.

I am a show breeder who was in town for a competition when my dog suddenly became ill. I rushed it here but the doctor said that there was nothing wrong and charged me several hundred for the five minutes it took to look at the dog without even inspecting him.

I then took my dog elsewhere because he was clearly suffering from some sort of illness and other vets revealed that he had a severe lung problem combined with pneumonia. Any idiot would have been able to see that there was something wrong.

Do not go to this place -- poor service and inexperienced/incapable medical professionals that don't know better. Worst place I've ever been to in my 27 years in show and believe me: I've been to a LOT of places.

My Fiance had brought her pet rats in to be treated for fleas. and instead of just doing their job they decided to inject them with Ivermectin - a drug used to deworm horses and pigs. (any animal injected with this under 25 lbs is 99% fatal) one of them lost clumps of fur. the other one went blind and died later that night. after confronting this vet it became apparent that they weren't going to take responsibilities for their actions as they handled it in a very unprofessional matter. It was like watching a five year old throw a tantrum when they knew they did something wrong. Would've been nice to received an apology instead of being told the rats were brought in dead. kinda hard to bring them in dead and then bring them home breathing isn't it? worst vet ever, defiantly will not be going there with any of our other pets anymore.

Absolutely horrible place here. I took a pet bunny here because of fleas, she injected the bunny with something and it died the next day. These people obviously have no idea whatsoever what they are doing. My bunny was fine before.

DO NOT GO HERE

I went to this animal "hospital" and Dr. Kropp prescribed my dog with Benadryl. yeah you know the medicine that is for HUMANS! I was very upset and i would highly not recomend going here. if you want your pet to come out alive, go somewhere else. if I hadn't been smart and called a real profesional, my dog would have died from the benadryl. STAY AWAY!

The woman who runs this clinic is quite obviously an animal abuser. She has killed and disembowelled dogs, cats and even rats. Ms. Krupp has lead animals to die painful and excruciating deaths. She performs unnecessary and cruel surgeries as well as providing medication to animals that is fatal.

DO NOT GO HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Absolutely horrible service. They gave my dog an injection saying it would fix his problem. The same dog died a day later. I called the hospital, and they said the stuff that was given to my dog was not appropriate to use on dogs at all.

When confronted, they denied ever doing anything to my dog. Do not go there, your pets will die.
