I have been taking my 2 dogs here for some time now and I have always felt very comfortable leaving my dogs there for care. I have a 2yr old Pug that when I got him his eye had gotten scratched by the other puppies,causing extreme swelling and eventual blindness. Now,here is where Bethel showed there true colors. I have always paid at the time of service and NEVER once have even so much as asked for payment arraingments even with the $3000.00 bill for the eye removal,neuter,dew claw and sinus enlargement,all in 1 surgery. The other day,Brinks,my Pug had eaten something and pretty much became lifeless except for breathing. I am in a financial pinch until next payday so I asked if I could bring him in just to get him stable but if I can wait to pay when I get paid 9 days away. They basically told me NO,pay now or watch your dog die.Don't get me wrong,every other vet told me the same thing,policy,I understand that but BETHEL KNOWS ME,$1000'ss of dollors worth and they wouldn't even check him out. Then I called back and asked to speak to the vet whom said he would call me back,HE NEVER DID. BRINKS MEANT NOTHING TO THEM. I have managed to nurse Brinks back to stable and getting better,no thanks to ANYBODY at Bethel Animal Hospital. Yes I know there is Pet Care finacing but not very many people have good credit theses days but my mother-in-law whom has never been turned down for anything was declined by them with a 850 score,so that whole thing is a joke. I'm sorry but when you build a relationship with a vet about your pet and you have given them no reason after 4-5yrs that vet bill will get paid,when you need it most that trust mean s nothing to them.

We boarded our dog that is a very well liked and behaved dog in their so called Dog Resort...the Behaviorist that works there and supposedly manages this section...it is her way or no way...never taking into consideration that you are the owner and know your pet...not allowed to take anything with the pet no blanket or anything...pets are left alone from 7 to 7 the next morning our pet was stressed when we picked her up acted withdrawn when we brought her home and this is a pet everyone loves and has always been loved at the place of boarding...something was not correct there and we will NEVER GO BACK!! THE BEHAVIORIST NEEDS BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION!!!!

Dr. Wempe and his staff are outstanding. They provide excellent service and are empathetic. My french bulldogs have been treated by them for years. I highly recommend Bethel Animal Hospital.

I came in to get my last Parvo shots for my puppy. He is a huge dog, weighing in at over 45lbs at just 4 months old. I use Cesar Millan's techniques in raising him and I use a choke chain, but never have abused it's use. The "behaviorist" hates Cesar Millan and refused to let me get my dog's shots because I disagreed with her method's of training. She screamed at me all the way out the door calling me an animal abuser. There were several people in the waiting room watching her rampage. I can not believe how unprofessional this place is just because they disagree with someone else. Now they have a sign up that says..."Defend those who can't defend themselves..." Yep...that was because I stood up to them when I told them I'd raise my dogs and kids they way I see fit. Their sign should read..."Fishing is murder" and things like that because that is really what these wackadoos believe! They are NUTS!

Watch out if you like Ceasar and believe in using any negative corrections they will actually verbally attack you over it!! I love my animals and spoil them rotten and yes sometimes use a swat on the behind of a young dog to get their attention when they are out of control!!! But to be called an abuser is out of line!!!

I can't say enough about how well we are treated at Bethel Animal Hospital. I do not believe for a moment that the poor reviews below are legitimate. Both Dr. Wempe and Dr. Kelsey are wonderful...as well as the support staff! Nothing but kind, courteous and professional! We have had two animals over the years have traumatic accidents needing emergency care, both times they were kind and understanding, and helpful.

Well after reading the few bad reviews on here about this hospital (especially the negative comments about the administrator) I was a little cautious at first but quickly realized that those comments were far from the truth and sound like they were likely written by disgruntled ex-employees. the staff was super friendly and cared for my cat better than i could have imagined. And i dealt with the so called "terrible" administrator and she was far from a whack job. this place is great and does a fantastic job with animals. they truly care about doing whats right for your pet.

Brutus my seventeen year old Rhodesian Ridgeback has been seeing Dr. Wempe for over fifteen years. I found Dr. Wempe, as well as the staff, to be knowledgable and willing to offer their expertise. I have always felt comfortable in the way I am approached with Brutus' treatment. Caring, concern, love and professional treatment are all given along with respect when your four legged friend is ill. Thank you Dr. Wempe and thank you Jackie for stopping in when Brutus comes by - we all know how well you are at meeting his honorary moods. Better known previously as the "King of Mean" after seventeen years his demeanor has changed to the "Prince of Quiet." Brutus and I truely cannot say how much we appreciate and love you folks. Thank you all. I would go no other place than Bethel Animal Hospital for treatment of my animals and Brutus agrees. Woof Woof.

This Vet hospital is amazing. The vets are very willing to explain step by step what they did to the animal and they explain so that the owner can understand what may be wrong with the pet instead of using the terms that must people get confused by, they use terms that normal day people can understand. I recommend that everyone take their pet to this clinic! I can not believe the bad reviews that other people are telling on here. Never have i experianced any bad happenings from this vet clinic

We rescue dogs and have placed many. We are 3 hours away from Bethel Vet Hospital but have tried 4 Vet clinics in between. There is absolutely no comparison to the treatment our pets receive at Bethel. We have had 2 major surgeries done, one life threatening mammary tract cancer. Years later no problems and a healthy Jack Russell full of fire. These folks are compassionate and do extensive explaining of their procedures and follow up treatment.Drs. Wempe & Kelsey are to be commended and trusted by all.

The office staff is friendly and efficient. The medical care and compassion from Dr. Wempe is outstanding and I cannot recommend him more highly.

The office "administrator/animal behaviorist" is not an asset to the business however; she is the only downside to the hospital.

For medical care DO take your pets to Bethel Animal Hospital and request specifically Dr. Wempe. Your animals will be treated with compassion and competence and you will be satisfied.

Caution, Caution, Caution, Caution -
If you love your animal take them someplace else!
The doctors are wonderful, but the office support - mainly the so called "animal behaviorist" is a whack job - she claims to know everything - when in reality she knows nothing. Techs there arent allowed to ooo and aww over your pets - they are treated like animals, not family members ... techs arent allowed to console the elderly when they are in pain, nor are they allowed to play with the wiggly puppy - or frisky kitten - they are put into kennels and labled with "caution" -
The medicine is great - but the bedside manner is terrible.
If you, like most people look at your pet as an extension of your family - then this is NOT the place for you - Look into other clinics in the area.

Two nights ago, our cat turned up at our doorstep, deathly ill. I am not exaggerating. We rushed him to Bethel where they quickly diagnosed and stabilized our cat and told us we needed to get him to the animal ER in Tacoma.

They told us he may have eaten a rodent poisoned with some of the latest, powerful, long-lasting rat poisons. [Please please don't use these where cats live]. Later that night, I researched this on the web and the situation was even more horrible than I'd feared.

The vets in the Animal ER were outspoken with their praise for Bethel and repeated several times that it was Bethel's excellent skills that saved our cat. I believe it. I came in with a cat that was plainly rapidly dying, that needed immediate IV, oxygen, and medicine. I left an hour later with a cat that had been diagnosed correctly, treated correctly, and masterfully stabilized for the frantic 45 minute ride to Tacoma.

Frankly, I pay for veterinary care, not office staff [who've always been wonderful to us] and their vets are extraordinary.

These bad reviews amaze me. Over the years we've had nothing but positive experiences.

We started going to Bethel Animal Hospital for our dog and two cats due to them being very close to where we live While we are very happy with the vets themselves (they are very nice people who are very proffesional and seem to love animals) we have not been happy with the rest of the sevices there. There is a constant turnover of vet techs, the receptionists have mischeduled and mischarged us (and a few people we know) on several occasions. The "animal behaviorist" also comes across as quite rude.

I would also NOT recomend thier boarding services. When we picked up our dog in the afternoon, she urinated so muchit made me doubt she had been taken outside that day at all.

Needless to say,we are looking for another vet clinic and place to board our animals when we are away. If you want a better overall scoring of this place, and happen to be a member, look at www.checkbook.org its a non-profit consumer rights group for the puget sound. Bethel animal hospital scored something like a 41%

Vets here are GREAT. It is the manager who creates constant chaos in this business. She lies and manipulates to employees and clients. She is disliked by most people and she dislikes most people. This vet clinic would be much better if the owner looked closer at how his admin treats others.

My family used this place for a long time. They used a eye drop medication for a vaccination the ended up blinding one of our cats. Luckly the other cats shook their heads too much and they did not get enough of the medication in their eyes to blind them. The staff were very indifferent to our complaint and pretty much ignored us when we asked how we could help our poor kitty. Plus the hospital was always trying to push new products on us. Obviously we DO NOT go there anymore.
