I had to give 1 star so that I could comment. It's more than Faulkner Animal Hospital and their incompetent doctors deserve.

My son's rescue dog, a Boxer named Diablo, hasn't been able to keep any food down. We have loved this sweet dog for 4 years and he has been to Faulkner Animal Hospital for all of his healthcare since my son rescued him in 2011. He has been misdiagnosed on several different occasions by every "doctor" at Faulkner. My son has spent a small fortune on Diablo's healthcare, trying to get Diablo a diagnosis and relief from numerous health issues.

On June 3, 2015, Diablo was, yet again, mis-diagnosed by Dr. Knox. There were no test performed, no blood was taken for bloodwork, and no x-rays were taken. Instead, based on the fact that Diablo can't keep any food down, Dr. Knox diagnosed him with Gastritis. This is a BS diagnosis. I'm not a doctor, but I knew there was more to Diablo's sickness than just gastritis.

On June 5, not satisfied with this diagnosis, my daughter and niece took him to a real doctor at Southern Paws in Indian Land. The first thing they did was bloodwork and x-rays. In less than one hour, Diablo was diagnosed with anemia and multiple organ failure (his liver had completely shut down, his kidneys were shutting down). At this point, there were three options: $4,000+ of emergency care, an ultrasound on his kidneys monitor it, or being euthanized. The option to spend $4,000+ on emergency care was almost pointless because there was a 5% chance it would work. At 4:05pm, about 47!hours after Dr. Knox diagnosed him with gastritis, Diablo was put to sleep because all of his organs had stopped working and he was in a great deal of pain.

We have no idea how long Diablo has been suffering due to organ failure, but we do know that he would have had a chance if he had been tested and treated by a vet who actually cared enough about him to run tests and find out what was wrong with our Diablo.

At $160+ each visit, Faulkner Animal Hospital has made a small fortune misdiagnosing Diablo for 4 years.

Faulkner Animal Hospital lost 4 patients today because of their incompetence to diagnosis and treat this sweet dog who was sick and ultimately diagnosed with complete organ failure and had to be put to sleep.

We lost a very important, very loved member of our family today. Diablo was the best dog EVER and he was LOVED! If you feel like something is wrong with your pet and you need to take him to the vet, drive past Faulkner Animal Hospital and take him/her to a real doctor and get him some help.

Our sweet boy did not deserve this.

R.I.P. Sweet Diablo. :(

Several months ago our kitten was about to starve to death (I'm not exaggerating). We couldn't figure out what was wrong. Dr. Faulkner and his staff found out: the cause was a severe birth defect of the intestines. None of the vets there had ever seen anything like this problem, but they did the surgery and our kitten pulled through, even though he was in terrible shape at the time. He's fine today. I was amazed at the competence and care shown by the doctors and the staff. And this care was affordable--about $700. I don't know why medical care for people can't be like this.

We have been going here for over 5 years. We have 3 Pekingese. These folks supply the best care possible and the best part for us is our dogs actually LIKE everyone there and they are NOT afraid like they were when we used to go to Waxhaw.

The long wait that it takes, when they call me in the examining room the wait is even longer because they wait on the patients in the waiting room first At every visit i can be ahead of 4 or 5 people and am the last to see the doctor and the last one to leave the office. My dog sprained his leg on 6/22/08 his foot is swollen, turned red and he is in pain.I called Faulkner Animal Hospital on 6/24/ 08 spoke with the receptionist explained the situation that i am a paying customer and am on a fixed income and if they will take care of the emergency and bill me,She said no they do not bill i asked if she knows of any low cost clinics she says no.And the reviews says how much Faulkner Animal Hospital loves Animals I don't think so.

We had inquired on pricing all over Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Tega Cay, York, Clover, and when we inquired on pricing for Lancaster this was the vet we found to be most reasonable. We have 10 dogs and two cats and much to our surprise we had the most excellent service. These doctors really CARE about your pet/pets and try to do things in an economical manner because they know that you are doing your best to keep your pet healthy and happy. You get excellent, quality care at a reasonable price. The receptionists were awsome as well. They were smiling, curtious, and friendly. We feel so blessed to have found Faulkner Animal Hospital. All of our animals are part of our family and the doctors and staff do realize this when examining your pet. I just cannot say enough good things about this vet. Try it and find out for yourself.

PROS: Care is excellent and cost effective.
CONS: Absolutely none

This vet is nice to go to. They show genuine concern for your pets and seem to care about them. They are very gentle while handeling your pet. The only bad thing is the price and sometimes, the wait. NICE AND CARING STAFF.

PROS: nice staff

From the moment you walk in the front door, you know that this is a world class animal hospital. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They are also very caring about your pet. They will take care of your pet with extreme care. There are also two vets at this facility, so you get seen a lot quicker then at other vets. The prices at first seemed to be high, but I checked around with the other vets and they all charge approximately the same for their services.
