My pets have been clients of Dr. Roy P. Wright since 1999. Last week Dr would not give me a prescription for my pet's medication. Instead he wanted to charge me $366.00 for a medication I could get through PetMeds for $208. I'll never go back to him again. I read him the Code of Ethics from the AVMA the "encourages" vets to give clients a prescription when requested. I read to him the direct statement from the Code of Ethics and his only comment was that he did not belong the the AVMA. As far as I'm concerned, he is not an ethical vet.

i took my 1 year old mixed breed to see Roy Wright and was COMPLETELY DISGUSTED with the way he treated my dog!
We only went in for a torn nail, Roy Wright asked me to hold my dogs head which i did ( he was also wearing a muzzle as he is abit skittish not mean!) because he stuggled as Roy Wright proceded to rip his nail off he HIT my dog around 6 TIMES then called him a bad boy! my dog was soo scared he even URINATED TWICE. i told he never touch my dog again we left!
I WILL BE MAKING A COMPLANT AGAINST ROY WRIGHT. THIS MAN SHOULD NEVER TOUCH ANIMALS!

My husband recently had to take our beloved 14 year old american eskimo BEST FRIEND in to see Dr. Roy. Alex was having a hard time breathing, had mutiple problems. Roy is the most compassionate man , he truly is in this proffesion because he loves animals and people. He assured my husband that there was pretty much nothing we could to to really extend his life without suffering. He gave comfort to my husband in his time of hurt! Thankyo Dr. Roy & Staff!

I have been seeing DR. Roy Wright since I was a young child, 12 years old. I'm now 53 years of age. He has always done his best to care for my family 's pets and my pets as an adult. He is a good DR.

Dr Roy is by far the best of the best! He is one of the most compassionate and realistic vets that I've ever met. He truly loves his work and animals in general. I've been seeing him with different pets for over 15 years. He and the staff, remembers the pets names, but need to ask for ours! lol He is understanding of your needs and circumstances as well. I absolutely love and trust him. Being an owner of bulldogs for years, it's comforting to know he's got a good amount of bulldog experience too, as many vets are not so up on the special needs that a bulldogs can have. You can't go wrong going to Dr. Roy Wright, Portland Ave Small Animal Clinic!

remove a horse's eye!

So naturally, when I moved to Tacoma, there was no question in my mind that this was my new vet clinic.
I mean, really...if he could make removing a horse's eye look graceful, he can do ANYTHING!

okay, well not anything...but if he can't perform miracles, he'll certainly do everything in his power to try.

We lost a loving furry family member last year and needless to say I was absolutely devastated.
He came into the clinic very ill, and bless their hearts...they stayed late working' on my little Mario.

Mario stayed a couple days, wherein we came to visit because the doc told me he strongly encourages "family visits".
.
I thought that was very loving and thoughtful.

Mario came home and took an even more sudden turn for the worse within two days and had to be euthanized.

The clinic staff rushed me right into a room and helped me say goodbye and absolutely BENT OVER BACKWARDS to support us in our time of loss.
They apologized repeatedly for not being able to save Mario.
I wasn't angry.
I wasn't disappointed.
I was just plum sad.
I unexpectedly lost the most loving bundle of ridiculous amounts of fur and purrs I'd had the pleasure of owning, and he was only a tot, so it was just a bit more sudden and had the sense of "tragic" written all over it.
But they did everything they possibly could have, and that is all I could ask for=)

I one hundred percent (to the power of infinity) recommend this clinic.
Doctor's great.
His help is great.
The clinic cat is great.
And the staff likes to smile!

Matter o' fact, I need to swing in today...

Great staff - period. The Docs here really care about your animals, and if you are a long time customer they even seem to remember their names. I have had one of my two dogs for 14 years, and they know his name but not mine .. go figure. Half price shots on Wednesday to try to get everyone to come in for routine shots on the same day, and if you walk in and see police in the lobby, best forget about your appointment - likely a K9 dog has been wounded in the line of duty.

I brought my puppy in for an examination that cost 50 dollars- no big deal right?
I told the Vet of my concerns and he laughed at them. He then told me my dogs were "fine" and said HIS goodbyes and said our examinations were over and waved us out the door. That took less then 5 minutes and he DID NOT do the basic exams (temperature, weight, teeth examination, ear check up). He had also FAILED to give me any information on them and told the nurse/clerk to give me a card for their next shot.

I have tons of cats growing up, but never had my own until I had my son. Once I did get one, I found out how little I really new about taking care of one. The very patient workers at the clinic helped answer my questions and were very reassuring that I was doing everything right. :)
