I recently moved back to Washington from California and needed a veterinarian for my dog Kip. I read numerous veterinarian reviews online and learned that no service provider can make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time!

However, what I saw for Dr. Gary at Shelton Veterinary Hospital was an over whelming number of 5 star ratings both recent and 5 star ratings dating back numerous years. Consistent high ratings over a long period of time is a good sign for me.

I am glad that I made the drive to Shelton because his staff is incredibly friendly, they handled the new patient paperwork quickly, and the cost was unbeatable! My dog is happier now also!!

Thank you Dr. Gary and staff! Kip and I will be back to see you again!!

Fees are very resonable. Service is great. I have had a few dogs in for minor to emergency services. How resonable the billings are almost always has surprised me. Other vets have charged me 2 to 3 times for the same type of services.

I am solidly in the GO ALMOST ANYWHERE ELSE column. A front desk person advised me to use a flea treatment on my cats--said she used it on her cats--foolishly I took her advice and my cats died.
Some years back, check the records, this clinic was written up in the Shelton Journal for having an unqualified employee doing surgery on people's animals--like I said, check the records--I take all of my animals--OUT OF TOWN--for veterinarian care--or call someone from OUT OF TOWN to come--goat, horse, all of them.

Shelton vet hosp is a life saver in my book. We have 2 great danes and they have charged us far less than anybody else offered and the care was excellent. We also have 2 blue heelers and one had a broken leg this yr, first stop was the vet emerg in Poulso - they wanted to charge us $300 just to X ray and after 3 hrs couldn't really even confirm a broken bone...Dr. Olson at SVH xrayed and confirmed in less than 15 min! When I called they fit me in right away-just like the other poster, no other vet cared my dog was suffering. He pinned the leg and my dog is happy and walking again (and to the person who said her dog's leg is not the same, of course it won't be...you can't immobilize a dog like a person, or have them follow don't walk on it instructions-get real! Dr. Olson told us my dog's leg might have to be amputated if the pinning could not be done-you are the one who has to make this difficult decision based on the injury). They have let us make payments if needed and been kind and obviously love the animals they work with. Don't listen to these other negative comments...I know people want to blame someone when bad things happen and its easier to blame the vet than admit sometimes crap just happens. I have had a cat die on the operating table and still had to pay $600 for the operation (NOT at Shelton vet hosp by the way) - this is their business, they still delivered the services and guess what, a people doctor would do the same! Shelton Vet Hosp is great and Dr. Olson has been wonderful with my animals.

Worse care a pet owner might imagine. Incompetence is possible and might well be pervasive at all levels.

I agree...they gave my 6 week old yorkie pups all under 12oz in weight their puppy shots and died...that after I questioned the amount given...all of my 6 pure bred pups died and so did the mother. When I called them to tell them about the pups falling over and not acting right...they told me it was NORMAL and they were just trying to get attention for their "owwie...." that happend to be a friday...I called and called on sat (4 died through out the night) and NO ONE called me...not even on MONDAY...so on MONDAY with ONE pup left ..I ran in and pup her on the counter and demanded HELP...as the receptionist (SHIRELY) picked her up...she died.
THEY BILLED ME $1299 for their services!!!!
NO JOKE
NEVER AGAIN

Don't take your animals to Shelton Veterinary Hospital! They double charged me and are now trying to take me to collections for my dog's surgery which was never done right in the first place. After my bill was paid they put it in an "inactive file" and two years later they found it and have been trying to charge me for it ever since. I don't keep records past two years, so of course I have no record of it, and I think that was their plan. His back leg that they did surgery on is in such terrible condition that he can't even walk on it - we may as well have had it cut off and they're STILL trying to get paid AGAIN for it. I've been around and round with them and the BBB for five years now, but nothing has come of it. The owner even has charges from the Health Department brought against him for letting unlicensed technicians perform surgeries and extractions on dogs and cats. If you care about your animals and your finances, please don't take your animals here!

A family member of mine brought her cat into the Shelton Veterinary Hospital. The cat's condition was misdiagnosed. The cat suffered an overnight stay and then was released. The cat was then taken to lacey for a second opinion since the cat was still visibly suffering. The cat turned out to have pneumonia that was so bad that the heart could not be seen on the X-ray. Animals have little chace of surviving severe pneumonia of this type so the cat was put to sleep.

Proper testing was not carried out by the shelton veterinary hospital. My relative was charged for services that should not have been rendered(for the incorrect diagnosis). Malpractice, fraud, and abuse of this sort causes emotional distress for the owner. DO NOT take your pet to the Shelton Veterinary Hospital.

My dog has had a couple of emergangcies and needed attention right away. I called alot of vets in the laceyOlympia area, and no one could get him in, I called Shelton Vet and they told me to bring him right in, no problem. He ended up having surgery that night, and the vet allowed me to make payments on the services rendered. You wont find a Vet in Thurston County that will let someone with low minimal income, make a payment plan. Excellent service, wonderful people. And my dog,well he has had surgery there twice, and he was wagging his tail when we walked in the building, so he must have remembered that this place was helping him.
