Nice service? I started bringing my puppy here when she was still little, so she knows everyone that works there now and loves going to play.

You came through so beautifully for us again. You guys are all such a pleasure to work with and easy to have around, plus the work is always so fine. And there is always an artistic touch that makes it unique.

Excellent service This is the best day care place Ive been. After visiting many other places and asking the right questions I was confident I was leaving my puppy in the hands of experts.

They kept us updated about his condition through his stay (a couple days) and we never felt like they were annoyed when we called, even late at night or early morning. He recieved great care and was back to his usual self within a couple days of coming home.

It's always difficult to make rational decisions about your pet's care and they were sensitive to our feelings throughout the whole experience. I hope we never have to go back (given the nature of the clinic) but it's wonderful to know that they're there.

However, discomfort/vomiting continued accompanied by weight loss so additional diagnostic testing was done-still no determination of what was the problem. It seemed that no one was responding to the immediate health need of our dog-until we met Dr.Koeppl. He immediately assessed our dogs condition, stopped the vomiting and developed a treatment plan. In 36 hours, we had a diagnosis of lymphoma but also had a comprehensive care plan. During this time, the ECA staff were compassionate, caring and responsive to our familys needs both human and K-9! The diagnostic abilities, critical care skills along with the constant focus on the welfare of our pet speaks volumes to the exceptional care that Dr. Koeppl and ECA staff provide 24-7!

It's all a blur, but I have the distinct impression the building was white inside and clean. More than that, I cannot say, as we were very upset. And I may not even have that right. It was very upsetting going in and very happy going home with our kitten.

The staff was very supportive and comforting. They explained what they were doing for our kitten and eventually suggested we go home and rest. They called us later in the morning, as they promised, with details of how our kitten was doing.

Started with Dr. Sarah Orvick and then Dr. Kim Berglund. I have sung their praises as well as Mrs. Candlin, Linda, and the clinic overall. Our pets have always received compassionate, loving care. I have always been most grateful to them all, but especially Dr. Kim. She always goes way BEYOND the call of duty
I have recommended them to many and all have been most impressed with Dr. Kim as well as all the staff.

I started over 20 years ago with my baby sisters sick old cat. Mom called with $35.00 in her pocket asking" Please Save The Cat" The cat could not be saved. But they took him in in the middle of the night for $35.00!! What vet does that?? My sister and I are grown now. We both take her several cats etc and my 9 dachshunds and two cats to the clinic anytime day or night. Always treated with respect and complete honesty. Never charging me for anything I have not needed!

i wouldn't take our two cats anywhere else! we get fair, affordable & most importantly, loving care from dr kim--petrus actually looks forward to seeing her buddies at candlin!

we tried another madison vet, but their prices were astronomical and their diagnosis off-base, expensive, and in the end, entirely erroneous. kim starts with the most gentle course of treatment first because i sense she truly cares about the well-being & comfort of the animal.

Kim and Kayla are amazing!! I have been bringing my 12yr. old dog there since he was a puppy. They are so kind, compassionate and loving. They are very practical-they don't just run all kinds of tests for no reason. I would strongly recommend them-
Reasonable prices and great care!!

Dr. Kim is amazing, and her new vet tech is great. Some of the reviews represent a vet who no longer works at Candlin. My dad was a vet, so my standards are high. Her new facility is warm and very animal/owner friendly. Dr. Kim is also willing to explore all types of treatment, and even gave me a "common sense" tip to help my dog's digestive issue. It works great and costs $.85 per week! Great place! Great price! Great care!

If you haven't been to Candlin's new location, it's very nice! MUCH more room than their old place, and a really soothing environment. Dr. Kim and her staff are great, have helped me with special-ordering a tough-to-find food, and turned me on to an alternative to the gentle leader-type leash (my dog hated) to one that works beautifully. I can walk both of my big dogs together now easily.

I have gone to Candlin for many years. Dr. Kim was the MUCH better vet of the two, and she now own it outright (from my understanding) and the other vet no longer works here.Prices have gone up slightly since she bought it, but their record keeping seems much better and the vet is still very good and seems to truly love animals.The new receptionist (Vet. Asst.) does not have the pleasant personality that Linda (the former owners daughter) did, but she is OK most of the time. She can be rather short.Overall, I would recommend them without hesitation, especially for anyone on a budget.

I have only had positive experiences at Candlin. The doctor herself was very caring, and even was accommodating when I explained to her that I have limited resources and I could only afford so much. I have never been there in an emergency, just check-ups. Regardless, I would recommend this clinic without hesitation.

The new receptionist is very snippy and withheld medication from my cat for 3 days while he was boarded there. And I've made repeated trips to try to get his blood checked, with no results so far. The vet herself is fine but I'm very frustrated.

I contacted Candlin today to see if they could provide me with the date and amount I paid for a six-month supply of HeartGuard Heartworm pills for my dog. The receptionist was not very enthusiastic when I asked if she could help me. "I'll try" in a very dry tone was her response. After a minute or so on hold, she returned with, "I cannot find the record in our new computerized system". I asked if she can tell me from hard copy, the date I had the appointment. This would at least provide me with a date to look through my bank/credit/check statements (I couldn't remember how I paid for appointment and pills). Then the receptionist came up with a date. I asked her what they would charge for the pills. Her response was which brand...I replied HeartGuard. She then told me $45.00. Wow, that wasn't so difficult. I hope others do a better job of keeping track of vet expense records than I do. I just felt like I ruined her morning by asking for help.

We took our dog there when he got hurt because it was only a mile away from our house. Big mistake. The vet gave us the wrong diagnosis saying that we needed to get emergency surgery on his back knee. Also, as she was checking him over I was asking questions that she just never answered. Long story short we took him to our usual vet in Oregon & they rediagnosed the injury and it healed on its own 2 years later we have still had no issues with his knee!

We first went to Candlin after finding a stray cat in our neighborhood. Since they are a walk-in clinic, we were able to take the cat over at our convenience and they examined the cat, then scanned the microchip and located the owner for us, not even charging us for the exam.
We really liked the experience, so when we adopted a cat of our own, we returned to Candlin. They are very good with Trout and he loves it when the tech cleans his ears.
We will be taking our newest cat there for her first exam today, based on the convenience, compassion, and value we find at Candlin.

We have had several problems with Candlin Pet Hospital. One resulting in the death of a pet, another with the near death of a pet (for a standard procedure) and multiple instances where the vet prescribed the wrong dosage of medicine. I would not bring a pet here even if it is for a minor procedure. If I could give Candlin negative stars I would.
