Silver Spring, MD
I have been taking my pets to Rocky Gorge for several years now and can't say enough good about them. We've seen a number of the different doctors, Dr. Wolchinsky, Dr. Farnun, Dr. Appelbaum, Dr. Morris, Dr. Pasekoff and Dr. Hirth. They have all been amazing, treating us and our loved ones with great care and kindness.
Just last week, Dr. Farnun operated to remove a growth from the nose of my best buddy (my dog). He has done fantastic from the word go! Happy to go in to the vet, wagging his tail and enjoying visiting everyone on the way in, and of course, happy to see me and come home that evening. His nose is healing beautifully.
When my daughters cat had to be euthanized, we were all heart broken. He was adopted as an adult cat, for her 5th birthday present and she was then a Senior in High School. Rocky Gorge had a private room where they allowed us all the time we needed to say our goodbyes....and I can tell you, we took a long time, with no pressure.
The lodging facilities are amazing. No CAGES!!!! Every pet has a ROOM. Most rooms have web-cams, and about half have external windows. The rooms range in size from about 4 1/2 foot square to 6 1/2 foot square so the animals have lots of room to move around and be comfortable. They are walked numerous times every day, and taken to one of the 4 play-yards out back to just run and have fun. They can use their food, or yours if you bring it and are able to administer your pets medications if necessary and there is no extra charge for any of this.It's great to know that while your pet is "at their own Resort" having fun, the doctors are just a few steps away if an emergency were to arise.
Having taken my pets here for years, I can tell you this is the best place around, Hands Down!
PS...If you have to wait a short time in the lobby to see the doctor, keep in mind, that's indicative of the time and attention they give to ALL PETS and OWNERS! And relax and enjoy a free flavored coffee or Cappuccino and watch animal planet while you wait to be called.
