On May 29th 2013 10:30AM, I took my four day old puppies in to have their tails docked and dew claws removed. Dr.Yeik glued his finger to one of their paws and ripped his paw open. The emergency vet at VCA refered to it as a "de-gloving injury". When Dr.Yeik told me what happened, he was throwing stuff across his exam room and using very inappropriate and unprofessional language! He put ONE stitch in and sent him home. I took him to VCA in Silverdale an hour later and they had to remove the one stitch and spent an hour and a half attempting to fix this hack job!! They said he will be lucky if they can save the skin on his paw. Later, I found out that NOT ONLY did Dr.Yeik massacre the puppie's foot, he also didn't stitch up his newly docked tail and the vets at VCA found the bone sticking out!! Dr. Yeik NEEDS his license revoked! He is unprofessional and DOES NOT care about animals, only making a quick dollar.

Excellent veterinary care!! Exceedingly wonderful staff, and the BEST doctors in town! We have taken all of our animals here for years, and never once had any issue. I have read some questionable reviews here. I think the incompetence is in the ignorance of the few. We love our animals and would never trust their care with any other practice. Alder Trail is the place to go, trust us!!!

I have been taking my dogs to Dr. Yeik and Alder Trail for about 2 years. I have to say that I think they are great. I do not agree with some of the other reviews regarding "rude" staff. I have always found the staff to be extremely friendly and accomodating. I have even had to take my dog in for an emergency visit in which Dr. Yeik stayed open for us and treated my dog with outstanding care. I do have one minor complaint however, I did take my dog in to see another vet at this practice and was told that my dog was ok and was charged an office visit and for meds, however, I went back the next day and saw Dr. Yeik who decided that treatment was necessary (thankfully I trusted my gut and went back to see Dr. Yeik)... my complaint is having to pay for the second visit. I wish we had received the same level of care and attention the first time around and not had to make a second appointment. Other than that, excellent service, and excellent staff!

Dr. Yeik has provided loving care to my pets for many years now. He saved us thousands of dollars. We took our newest puppy to get fixed before her first heat while Dr. Yeik was on vacation to Bremerton animal Hospital on Pearl Street off Wheaton Way. They tried to tell us that out dog had a heart mermer and they wanted to call ina mobil heart doctor. They also wanted to do thousands of dollars of dental work to her teeth because...blah blah blah didn't understand most of it. They said she wouldn't live a year without all this care. We just had her fixed and went back to Dr. Yeik. He found NO heart defect still to this day 5 years later NO heart defect. Also NO teeth issues. Dr. Yeik sat with me on the floor and held my dog with me as he passed away of old age.

Dr. Yeik talked me out of a surgery to save me money on another dog because the surgery would only shortly postpone the inevitable, (a bad knee and hip joint). He said another vet might tell me they would do the surgery but that I would be waisting my money because after about a year it would be back to the same as before surgery. A money hungry vet does not do that.

As for the person who gave a low star rating because of not being able to return medicine...well, you can't return medicine it's illegal. If you get an antibiotic for yourself and you have a reaction to it you quit using it you don't take it back and get your money back that's how it works. It sucks but that's just how it is.

We highly recommend Alder Trail. The staff has always been kind to me but I have never argued over my bill and I am fortunate enough to be able to pay in full at each visit.They have cared for my dogs and my birds.

We have been taking our pets to Alder Trail Animal Hospital off and on for 16yrs. I am not postive if Dr. Yikes was the Dr back in 1993/1994 but no matter. Dr. Yikes has been our pets Dr. for the past several years and he is a great Dr. Always willing to explain things clearly and we have always felt like our pets are in good hands. There might be Vets that are less expensive in the area, but we feel confident about Dr. Yikes and the quality of care he gives our animals.

Horrible Staff!! Not a good place. Was not helpful and they are Rude and just Mean! Very unhappy with my service if that's what you call it. After a few Hundred Dollars nothing was any better and they did not care. Tried to talk to the Doctor and was told he was never in. I will never go Back! Never.

I took my dog in for a mild skin irritation. After spending over a $100 dollars i was confident the medication would work. After a few days it was not helping so i called to ask what's next. New medication $70 dollars ok. Then the staff proceded to argue when i started asking questions about the new pills. They would not answer me and told me to hush they were busy. I then was like are you kidding me i need to know side-effects and what to look for. I asked to see the new meds and what they were called the staff told me i could wait when i said wait for what the lady told me" DO U WANT THE PillS OR NOT" Then they proceeded to argue and pick a fight for the next few minutes with me. I was shocked at this. So i left with new meds and thought hope i dont have to deal with them ever again. Over a week has went by no luck with new meds so i called the office and was told more money new meds. When i said i just dont understand i was told "Dont get an attitude with me" I then replied what? Are you serious? This is how you treat people that come to your bussiness for help? She replied yes when they are "Annoying like you". I then told her it was my choice to take my animal to them and I definitely made a Huge Mistake. She said "that was fine we still got your money". WOW I WILL NEVER GO BACK AND I WILL TELL ALL MY FRIENDS!

Pros: If you are looking for an argument this is the place.

Cons: Dirty, uneducated staff with an attitude.

Dr. Yeik and his office staff are absolutely wonderful. My cat - even though quite aggresive - was always treated so kindly and compassionately by everyone in Dr. Yeik's office. The care, the advice, and yes, the bills were always appropriate. I have 2 new cats that I will also be taking to see Dr. Yeik. I have also boarded my cats at Alder Trail and always am thankful for the wonderful care they give to my buddies. I have no complaints and nothing buy the highest praise and recommendation for Dr. Yeik and his office staff.

I actually worked at Alder Trail for a good number of years. Having worked at several vets since that time, I can personally attest to the fact that Dr. Yeik is one of the most dedicated, caring and compassionate vets around. He is an ethical business owner who treats his employees well and he is just a good person. His personality is quirky and that sometimes puts people off, but he is in the profession for all of the right reasons. The veterinary world is becoming a nasty, competitive, and dispassionate profession - yet Dr. Yeik still maintains an old school family practice with integrity and customer loyalty.

I recently had to change vets and went to Dr Yeik. I am SO glad I did. He is thorough, explains everything, is not in a rush to leave the room and has a great since of humor. His prices have been lower than others in the area and the quality of care is fantastic. I do agree that the one girl in the office comes across as being rude but she really isn't once you start talking to her. I would recommend Dr. Brent Yeik to any and all.

Dr. Yeik is so wonderful with pets. He gets down to their level and explains what is going on. He understands financial hardships and is always willing to work with you including payment arrangements and alternatives to the more expensive procedures. It is nice to work with a doctor who treats not only you with respect but also your pets.

We recently bought a West highland puppy and have been taking him to Alder Trail since we bought him. The doctors and staff are so nice and seem to know exactly what they are doing. We enrolled our dog in Connie's puppy class and had an absolute blast. I would recommend this vet to everyone, I couldn't be happier!

I switched to Dr. Yeik and Alder Trail on a recommendation of a friend, after my previous vet who really needs to retire sent one of my dogs home with a glass thermometer still in his rectum. I have had nothing but excellent treatment by Dr. Yeik and his staff. He has never run any test without explaining to me what it is and what information it will tell me. I have also never had him inflate the bill. He understands my breed of dog, (Westie), and is very caring and thorough. I have had times where I was stuck in the waiting room for an hour, but it was because of an emergency that came in (dog was hit by a car) and if that was your dog, wouldn??t you want him to jump in and do everything possible to save it? I did not mind waiting in the least. Never had a single staff member be rude to me and they remember my name and my dog??s names. I would highly recommend Dr. Yeik to anyone.

i took my two dogs to alder trail first we waited in the waiting room for over an hr second the staff at the front desk was loving on one dog and ignoring all the other dogs there giving this male pit mix lots of treats and affection but when i got there she did not give my dogs treats or affection. third i asked them to tell me before they do a treatment cause the one dog was there only to look at the lump in her mouth they did a fecal and prescibed meds and perscrition diet all befoer they told me what was happening and wanted to do moer they broke out the vaccines and wanted to do blood work all without checking with me first i think they want to do good by the pets in thier care and expect you to be okay with this but they should ask if you are prepared to pay for all of this beofer hand.

I took my 18 year old cat in with nasal congestion after aspirating drinking water. He took xrays of her lungs and did blood work and sent her home saying she was fine. Well guess what, she is still suffering with nasal congestion. I can hear her breathing from across the room (which was the complaint I brought her in with). I won't be bringing my pets back to him. The office staff is rude, rude, rude (at least ONE office personnel) and Dr Yeik seems to be more interested in how high he can get the bill rather than actually helping to get your pet well. I have 3 elderly cats and 2 elderly dogs and potentially a lot of vet visits ahead of me. Not with this vet however.

Our family pets have always received excellent, loving care from Dr. Yeik and his staff since 1978. We are able to get appointments quickly when needed, and a number of times he has also provided emergency care when needed. We would not take our cats to anyone else. Dr. Yeik always thoroughly explains what is going on with their health and gives us options to consider. The kindness and gentle compassion that Dr. Yeik has given to our cats and to us has been exceptional. We highly recommend Alder Trail to our friends and family members.
