This vet should never be left alone with any animal. I discovered that years before I read about his abuse in the Herald. The allegations against him seem to be consistent with the reasons I found another vet.

Very skilled in animal surgery and keeping pets healthy. When the vet did a spay and identity tag on my dog, there were immediately no visible stitches and no scar when it healed. Prior to that, I did not even know it was possible for surgeons to do stitches so perfectly. I highly recommend this place and even if you are out of state as I am now, and ever need a second opinion from a highly skilled veterinarian with strong integrity give them a call.

Awful service! I went to take my dog in for an ear infection and they tried to sell me on just about everything else and hadn't even looked in her ears yet! The girl that I'm thinking was the assistant or vet tech didn't seem to have a clue about anything. She also decided not to take her temp because the thermometer wasn't in the drawer, so she said "oh well I won't take it"...UM hello she's there for an infection which is usually associated with fever! She kept mentioning shots and nothing about what we were there for. Finally the 12 year old doctor came in and stayed but 5 mins. Assis. came back with a sheet of shot prices finally we snapped at her and said "hey were here for an ear infection not shots!" The doc came back and said looks like our service isn't making you happy so maybe we're not the right clinic for you. Ha Ha Ha wow, we left and will never go back nor recommend that joke of a vet office and staff!

Business Response:

Causes of ear infections: Allergens Atopy Candida albicans Chiggers, trombiculidiasis Contact dermatitis Corynebacterium spp. Demodex canis Drug hypersensitivity Escherichia coli Food allergy Foreign body Foxtail Hypothyroidism Immune mediated Malassezia (Pityrosporum) spp. Neoplasia Otodectes cyanotis Proteus miracilis Pseudomonas spp. Sarcoptes scabiei Seborrhea Staphylococcus spp. Streptococcus spp. Trauma It only took 5 minutes to discover that none of the above was important to you.

Both visits for my dogs eye surgery - the Dr. spent no more than 3 minutes with us. I spent over $700 for double laser sugery on his eyes. After coming in 3 days after the surgery for the post-op appoinment where the Dr. spent no more than two minutes with us, I was billed $38 for the appt. I assumed dog surgery was like people surgery, your post-op appointment is part of the exhorbant prices they charge. Within a month after receiving one bill, they turned me over to a collection agency - I am taking them to small claims as the surgery wasn't successful...my poor dog drains blood out of his eyes to this day! DON'T TAKE YOU LOVED, PRECIOUS ANIMAL TO GLACIERVIEW!

I've seen vet clinics with bigger billboards and taller buildings but Glacierview is about good science and healthy animals.

I've lost an animal in the past due to poor work by a vet tech at another place. If I had been close to Glacierview at that time, I would have had no hesitation and taken my sick bird to Glacierview. Dr. Rule doesn't mess around. He provides top notch work and charges a fair rate for it. His staff is friendly and they are never too busy to help.

Pros: Experienced vet

I was really worried about my cat when she stopped taking care of herself and her fur started getting matted. The Doctor got right to the bottom of the issue and my Mimi is happy and healthy!

A few years ago Glacerview Animal Hospital had performed a surgery on my dog. I was particularly impressed with the quality of surgical sutures as they were similar to the quality that a plastic surgeon would do here in Beverly Hills. After the surgery, the sutures were not only hidden under the skin but appeared to be healed. In my case the dog did not even need an Elizabethan collar. Another thing to note about Glacerview Animal Hospital is that they treat fleas with Comfortis a substantially less toxic alternative to Front Line.

I have nothing but good to say about this place! The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and the staff are helpful. The Dr. himself is very considerate and takes time to listen to what you have to say.

2 years ago, I would not have given my own clinic 5 stars (actually, I believe Ducky007 was working here at the time.), but I think I can with integrity give my own business that. I actually LIKE going to work now.

Compared to other clinics, I can guarantee we have a better fish tank, but my colleagues are great as well, and we'll work with them as needed to make sure every pet gets the care they need.

Yes, we're expensive -- and my staff is well worth it, so if the almighty $ is your bottom line, there are several other good clinics in the area that may be able to meet your needs.

This office was less than satisfactory. They charge a lot and the Dr. seems to have anger issue.s Do your pets a favor and take them to an office that cares about the health of your pet.

met with an incredible amount of honesty and care for my pets, not just a place to take your injured animals but a relationship with an excellent team. their motto is "happy pets. happy people." they stand true to their motto. if your not happy their recommend you to the nearest and equally satisfactory clinic.
