Dr. Schowalter has been our vet through various cats and our 3 white boxers, Bubbles I, II and III and I couldn't ask for a better facility. His Office Manager, Courtney, McCoy is a very valuable member of his staff and took the time to explain to me my options with my kitty Ms. Bigglesworth and never made me feel like a bad kitty Mom. Thank you Courtney!
Mr. Schowalter and Dr. H will take the time to explain things to you and not 'dumb it down', making you feel inadequate. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Terrible place!!!!! We brought our dog down to have a mole removed from his lower eye lid. My mother brought down the dog in the morning and picked him up late in the afternoon. The dog could not walk and the staff told her that he was still groggy from the medicine that they gave him. So my poor mom had to carry a 60lb dog to the car (ya think that they would help...nope) She brought the dog home and he died a short time later. We took him to another vet to see why he died and they said that the vet gave him too much medicine and that his stomach had rolled and cut off his blood supply to his heart. We left a message at the vets stating that our dog died and we NEVER got a return call. In fact, when we actually called back they said that they never got the message. Then went as far as sending us a "reminder" that our dog was due for his shots!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are heartless cruel and killed our dog!!!! Now we take our animals to Dr Bridge in Ford City. I dont mind driving 40 minutes away knowing that I am getting the best care for my animals!

I'm very comfortable and confident in leaving my pets care to thier staff. They dr's as well as all the techs are very educated in what they do. If i have a question they can either answer me on the phone when i call or they return my call the same day with an answer! Its obvious they are caring people.
As for the man with the lab with the torn ACL, my dog also had a torn ACL and the cost wasnt nowhere near 2-3,000 it wasnt even 1,000!

We first brought our animals to Dr. Showalter when he started out at Borderbrook Animal Hospital. When he opened his own practice - Golden Mile Animal Clinic - we followed him. Dr. Showalter is kind, compassionate AND an excellent vet. He is straightforward, and lets you know where things stand even in difficult situations. He has continued to provide cutting edge treatment and surgeries and we have trusted him with the treatment of numerous animals over the years.
I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a vet or has had a bad experience with another vet.

I was desperately seeking a vet who could perform a P U surgery on my 2 year old cat. He blocked 2 times and I spent almost $1,500 at Northern Pike Vet unblocking him with hospital stays. The doctor a Northern Pike recommended a specialist in Shaler who would probably charge 3,000 for the surgery and 125.00 just for the consultation. As I was returning back very disappointed from a consultation at Holiday Park Vet, I decided to turn into Golden Mile animal clinic at the last minute. As I approached the receptionist and asked the Question "Can you perform the P U surgery?" To my surprise she actually knew what I was talking about and said they actually had a cat named Jack that had the surgery and was living at the office. I was thrilled. I made an appointment for my consultation which was only 30.00. Dr. H said he performed the surgery on his own cat also. I was amazed to find out that the surgery with the unblocking procedure would only cost 450.00. He told me that if my cat blocked 1 more time to bring him in for the surgery. Well he did and I brought him. Ultimately he had to have the surgery 2 times but he has recovered fully and is doing great. The staff was wonderful to me and my Pumpkin is back to his old self.

I have had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Schowalter. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. When my 13 year old dog had be put to sleep, they were very caring and even sent us a sympathy card. They took care of my poor little 6 mo old puppy who had developed pnuemonia from kennel cough from poor pratices at the pet store. They are great!

I took a 3 year old black lab in for a yearly checkup and shots, and thought I'd have his nails trimmed while I was there. After the shots, a "tech" came in to trim his nails. Being a large dog, he sat on the floor with his right rear leg tucked under him while this was going on. I asked the tech is we could help stand him or roll him over, she said no, even though he clearly wasn't enjoying it, he struggled throughout. After trimming the legs she could reach easily, she then proceeded to grab his right leg out from under him and yanked it up in the opposite direction to trim. The next day, he came up lame.
Another trip to the same vet and I was told he had a torn ACL, and without $2-3000 surgery, there was little hope for him. During the second trip, he cried and carried on in the waiting room while we waited, something he'd never done before, maybe he was trying to tell us something.
Anyway, I went back a few days later to ask the vet about the possibility that the injury had occurred that day.
Immediately and without hesitation, I was barked at, and told that I could "shop that around all you want" and that I would not be successful. Huh? I hadn't even finished explaining my concerns when that came out. He then went on to explain that there was "no way" it could have happened during an office visit. That alone sounded suspicious, I mean, how can anyone be that sure, without even hearing me out?
All I was looking for was a little sympathy and compassion, and to make sure the staff was made aware of it, just in case it did happen there, a very real possibility. I wasn't there to make accusations or threaten legal action, but that was clearly on their minds. It was obvious at that point that they'd been down that road before...
At this point, it's a real possobility that I may have to put a three year old lab down because of this injury.
Beware.

I took my cats for a dental cleaning. I received an NSAID for pain control for the cats. The med was for dogs and I was given 2 syringes for the med. NOTHING was explained to me for dosing. My cat received too much med and nearly died. I took the med back for some instructions and the techs could not figure out how to draw up the med. I have never seen back since- so buyer beware!!! My cat was also treated by a vet I had never seen before and they did not even tell that a new vet would treat my cats.

Neat & very tidy place & have excellent verts & staff.The pricing seemed to be little higher but worth spending for good quality care.They do explain the options & the pricing so that one would get the exact picture of how much we would get in our bill & thats very good.

A well maintained facility, clean and comfortable waiting area, and wonderful vets and staff. In an emergency with a beloved pet, we were given excellent information and options, as well as a sympathetic ear. The pricing was explained carefully when we were given options, and payment plans can be put into place if cost is an issue. This facility also takes some forms of pet insurance. I can't say enough about the care our pet received here.
