I absolutely love Burke! They Doctors and staff there are very friendly and it's reasonably priced. I have been taking both my dogs there for years. One extra thing is that they do alternative care (e.g., VOM and Bicom) which has really helped my dogs as they've gotten older.

I have been a client for over 14 years. The quality of care is excellent. They also offer non-traditional therapies that helped my dog with arthritis and other pain as she aged. She wasn't able to take the usual anti-inflammatories so Dr. Herrity suggested some alternative therapies like Bicom and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation. What a difference it made in her ability to walk without pain! The prices are reasonable for the area. I've had to wait more than 20 minutes at times. But, otherwise, I've had good experiences with all the vets my dog has seen and would recommend them highly.

Brought my puppy in for limping. I suspected Lyme but was told it was probably aching from bones growning (panosteitis). Told to put my puppy on bedrest for 1 week. Brought in after 1 week, puppy still limping. 2nd vet at practice took xrays which showed nothing. Again I suggested it might by Lyme and said I'd seen a bulls-eye ring on her belly several weeks before. 2nd vet agreed with first that it was panosteitis and I was told to put my puppy on bedrest for 2 more weeks (she also said animals don't get bulls eye rings, which is false). Went in on third visit. My puppy no longer limped but seemed lethargic. 2nd vet said to keep puppy on bed rest still and by this time I was being treated like one of those owners who thinks they know better than the vet and is such a pest. After 5 weeks of bed rest (total from start), my puppy's back legs "stopped working". She couldn't stand up. I was certain she had Lyme. Carried her in (she couldn't walk now) and I told head of practice, Dr. Herrity, "I am certain my puppy has Lyme" to which he replied "I am 99.9 per cent sure it isn't Lyme." He humored me with a Lyme test...he was shocked that the results were so definitive....he tested her again because he couldn't believe he'd been wrong...and the second, more complete test, showed results 10X normal readings for Lyme. Rather than say, "I'm sorry. We should have listened to you earlier." He spent 15 minutes on the phone telling me why he hadn't recommended the Lyme vaccine at her first puppy visit. He just didn't get it. And I've never been back. Today my full grown dog has poorly formed knee joints, which I attribute to 5 weeks of bed rest as a puppy complicated by aggressively advancing Lyme infection.

We used this vet clinic for the last 9 years for our dog and cat. However we have recently changed for several reasons. I brought my dog in several times for a growth on his side and everytime I was told it was a fatty lump. This is got huge and started leaking fluid. I was told it was a cyst and they drained it. Then it started leaking and bleeding. Vet was still not overly concerned but gave us an estimate to remove of approx. $1,000. We went to another vet for a second opinion. His recommendation was not really different but his level of care and communication was great AND the estimate was $700.

Also at Burke Animal Clinic I have been made to wait for 1 - 2 hours for an appointment. I understand there are emergencies, but this has happened on many occasions with no explanation or offer to reschedule.

If someone were looking for a vet I think they could do better.
