I have 2 pure bred Coton de Tulear dogs. I have taken them to Crystal Mountain Animal Hospital and Dr. Chuck Vandermause since they were puppies 8 years ago! I drive miles to get there and would not go anywhere else.

Dr. Vandermause is kind and knowledgeable and has a fantastic staff of dedicated, caring professionals. You could not put your animals in better hands!

Location! Location! Location!
The location of the vet made me want to like it, even though they nickel and dime you for everything. Make sure to double check what your pet needs before coming in. Today was my last time.

Over the weekend we adopted a new puppy. I called Crystal Mountain to make an appointment for a checkup since two of our other dogs go there. Talking to the receptionist, I told her we adopted a puppy and would like to schedule our first free visit. She said that would not be a problem. I had also told her that he would need his puppy shots (these would obviously have to be paid for).

Upon arriving, everything seemed normal (as it did with two other dogs we have) but when we went to check out, there was a surprise charge of $47.50. The charge was for the first visit we were told would be free.

No estimate was provided for any of the shots or the checkup, just a surprise bill at the end. No wonder with over 36 years of experience they only have two reviews before this one.

Helped me save my dog by avoiding unneccesary surgery. Thanks for the good advice doc! Price was fair too.

I have been taking my dog to Crystal Mountain for years and she loves it there. The staff are friendly and really show how much they care for my dog. I really believe that they want to do the best for my dog. The price is no different than my last vet so I think price is pretty much same everywhere. I love the fact that they dont over do it on shots and meds. I read the other review and am inclined to think the exact opposite. Acupuncture only cost me 85 dollars. If you want a good vet that will keep your dog healthy, then go there.

Pros: care and service

Cons: location and parking

This vet markets himself as ""east meets west"", which is well and good, but it's been taken too far. My dog has arthritis, and the vet here said he would benefit from acupuncture and be all better. These acupuncture treatments are a couple of hundred dollars each, and you have to go to several. After being disappointed with the lack of improvement in my dog, I took him to another vet, and after a quick exam and a $30 bottle of Curaflex bonlets, my pup is dramatically improved. Dr. V never even suggested this route. Also, this clinic will suggest ""alternative"" heartworm prevention therapies, which don't really work. Sorry, but immune support won't stop heartworms from infecting your dog, and you'll pay hundreds to treat your dog for heartworm infection, which is lethal if not caught. If you care about your pets and want the best, scientifically supported therapies, then go elsewhere. I use herbal supplements in my dog's food, and they do carry a great brand of food here, but sometimes Western medicine works better. And is a hell of a lot cheaper. Makes me wonder if they're just after a fatter bottom line. My neighbor boarded her dog there, and it came home with a nasty case of runny stool and a hefty bill for the necessary meds. The receptionist told my neighbor the stomach flu was ""going around the kennel"". So this place is responsible for not keeping the kennel clean, and my neighbor had to pay for it!! And unless you live waaaay out west, don't bother. This place is really far away except the few of us that live near it. I would say entrusting your pet to this place is dangerous and costly. Go elsewhere!
