I have taken my animals to Dr. Goins for years just out of convenience. The office is slow even if you have an appt. I have never been there when I wasn't at least 45 minutes waiting past the appt. time. I have recently changed vets and now I don't wait as long. Wise County Animal Clinic is good if all you need is shots/basic stuff but the parking is terrible and the office is always crowded. Make sure you have all day to waist.

My cat is my baby and the poor thing was very sick for the first time in her life. I had called her regular vet and she had said if she hadn't gotten any better to bring her in. The next day my cat was fine and playing so I didn't take her in. At about 4 that morning she started foaming at the mouth, shaking, whining, and bleeding from her nose. I tried to page my vet and she did not call back. This is when I remembered Dr.Goins and gave him a call. He let me bring her in that very second without hesitation. He saw her as soon as we walked in and eased my mind when it was only an upper respiratory infection that could be treated with antibiotics. He explained all of her symptoms to me (why her nose was bleeding, ect), he was kind and understanding when I was a complete mess, and was extremely kind to her. My cat is scared of new people, he let her warm up to him before he started any part of the exam. He was gentle and caring with her. He treated her as if it was his baby who was sick. He explained the instructions for the medicine and what it would do for her. The staff called me twice the following week to check up on her progress. Dr.Goins also takes time out of his day to come and visit the horses my mom has and is amazing to them as well. Dr.Goins and his staff are angels. They love all of the animals and they will do anything they can to help them. I will never use another vet again.

Am up to five rescue dogs and am very pleased with Dr. Goins and his staff. It is convenient for me because it's difficult to make appointments to have my dogs rabies shot because of a disability because on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 2:30- 4 PM you can walk in for a shot. My oldest dog is almost 16 and has always gotten great care at Wise County Animal Hospital.

I have taken my dogs to Dr. Goins for the past year and a half. Then entire time that I was going to his office, I was scheduled for an appointment at a specific time and then made to wait for half an hour before my puppy was actually looked at. Once in the room, Dr. Goins would ALWAYS assume what my puppy needed, and has never once looked at my dog unless I asked him multiple times to look at a specific problem. I can tell that the staff at the hospital really cares about the animals, but I can also tell that Dr. Goins is just in it for the money and has no concern about the animals well being. I will NEVER be taking my pups back to him.

I've been taking my shih tzu to Dr. Goins for 5 years. I take her for nail trims a few times a year when she doesn't let me do them, and of course when she's sick and for her yearly shots. I've never had a bad experience with them. In fact, the last time I was there, they'd lost a cat on the operating table. The owner came in to pick it up and none of the staff had the heart to tell her. Dr. Goins met her at the front desk and told her what happened in great detail. He was soft spoken when talking to her and very apologetic.

The office has been clean almost every time I've been there. The only time it was untidy was when there were no patients and the office was actually closed. They were doing a thorough cleaning and I just stopped in to pick up my dog's heartworm preventatives and some capstar. He didn't ask to see her before giving the meds because she's already a patient.

Unlike some of the other reviews here, I've never had a bad experience with Wise County Animal Hospital or any of their staff.

Doctor Goins is mean to the animals, they are way to expensive and rude. I would rather die than take my animals to that poor excuse for a vet. They are just in it for the money and could honestly care less. I discovered this many years ago when I volunteered for Wise Animal Hospital. I quit because they are too rough with the animals, especially after the owner leaves. his prices are way too high and you can get much better care at the Rasnic Animal Clinic or Pound Vet office. (Pound is only about 15 mins or less, from Wise. Both Dr Stidham (Pound) and Dr Rasnic (Duffield) will tend to your pet as deserved, both have great prices, and they both will let you come pick up meds without bringing the animal in (if not necessary). Dr Goins wont let you get anything without seeing the animal first (which is another excuse for more money). PLEASE NEVER TAKE YOUR ANIMALS THERE! YOU DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU LEAVE YOUR PET IN HIS CARE!! I HAVE SEEN IT FIRST HAND AND I'M LITERALLY BEGGING YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

I would absolutely not recommend this office to anyone who loves their pet. The doctor is rude and rough with the animals. He is very uncaring and so are the staff. The staff are some of the rudest people I have encountered and the expense is ridiculous. If you are looking for a great vet, I would recommend Dr. Tim Rasnic in Duffield, VA. It is a longer drive from Wise but well worth it. He is the best and much cheaper.

I have no complaints at all about Wise County Animal Hospital, well except maybe the parking. They could use some more.

They call me to remind me that my dog has an appointment. They take good care of him. There is a groomer on staff who does a fabulous job on my Standard Poodle.

Thank you, Wise Co Animal Hospital. Keep up the good work!

Run the other way. The office was inefficient, unorganized and a mess. The staff was friendly, but not enough to make up for the Vet. Rude, uncaring and rough with my 13 year old dog. I just moved to this area and expected more for my pet's healthcare. We will not be back.

Wise County Animal Hospital is really the only animal hospital in Wise County. Therefore, most people would have no choice but to take their pets there. My first and only visit to this animal hospital was disappointing, to say the least. The staff was nice enough and their prices were ok, but the place was a mess. I had never witnessed such an unorganized and unclean office in my life. We will never take our pets here again.
