Love this clinic! My sweet hound mix Cheyenne just loves her doctor and all the staff at the clinic. Aside from the routine check-ups and vaccines that she sees them for, she also has a pretty crappy immune system and some rather persistent skin allergies that cause her to itch terribly to the point where she often breaks the skin. She was miserable for quite some time as I tired over-the-counter remedies only to find myself in the same situation; itchy dog and relief. A year later, and countless visits to the doctor, Cheyenne is finally comfortable in her skin. The staff truly cared and understood that my girl was terribly uncomfortable. They worked with me, and my budget,
to try different solutions as well as combinations of such, until we found one to sustain her while we wait for the doggie allergy pill to make its way to our area. I can’t thank this team enough for all that you do. Chey loves you, too. Though she may not show it when we’re there.
We adopted our pets here and they’ve helped us take good care of them ever since!
I’ve taken my dog Tank for several years now just took my new dog Bobo there for his first visit he needed his teeth cleaned and they did abeautiful job on him our family just love everyone there thank you all for caring for my babies.
I am very happy with taking my mini schnauzer Lexie fur baby here. Everyone is welcoming, it is clean, professional and all staff techs and vets are very compassionate and knowledgeable. Any questions and or issues are always answered and treated. Very thankful they are in business and in a central part of Westminster. ?
I took my Lab Gage in for ear infections Saturday. They were able to fit him in short notice. Didn’t have to wait long. He made new friends in the waiting room. They gave him lots of love and attention. (Well he is pretty cute..106’lbs) you’d think they’d get tired of administering all this attention with all the animals they see. But, made him feel special…..he told me so!
Knowledgable and caring vets and staff who treat your four legged loved one like their own. HUGE thumbs up!
Kind caring staff, convenient evening and weekend appointment times.
Scout, age 9 weeks, had her first puppy visit here today. The staff went crazy over her, and everyone treated her like they would treat their own pup. I was nearly 10 minutes late for the appointment (traffic, plus it was just one of those Monday mornings where everything that COULD go wrong, DID go wrong.)
When I arrived I offered to reschedule, so we wouldn’t throw off the doctor’s schedule for the day. They wouldn’t let me! 🙂 I was assured that they could “go with the flow,” and I really appreciated that! Her first exam was thorough, and included a review of the necessary vaccines as well as a discussion about flea & tick control, and heartworm preventative. We received a complimentary single dose of Vectra (a topical flea/tick parasiticide that is effective for 1 month, even after swimming or baths), and a dose of Heartgard. That was a pleasant surprise!
They also asked for a stool sample so they can do a fecal check, and they said they would call me with the results.
Something else I noticed while I was waiting in the exam room was the amount of information they make available to their clients. Each exam room has a binder in it with info about everything – an explanation of the ingredients in dog food, educational info on flea/tick/heartworm prevention, what happens during a dental (with pictures), and much more. The binder had so much useful info in it that I wanted to ask if I could borrow it for a week 🙂
So, what I took away from this first visit were these impressions: the clinic is clean, organized, and there is clearly a system in place for dealing with clients who aren’t on time, like me (ughhh, lol.) The prices are reasonable and I really appreciated getting the flea/tick and heartworm preventative free with our first puppy exam. Finally, judging from all the info available in the clinic as well as on their FB page, web site & blog, this clinic really believes in client education. Which is nice – they want you to be an informed pet owner, not just someone who brings their pet in and lets the doctors and staff decide what’s best while you sit on the sidelines. Clearly they value pet owners’ input and do what they can in taking a collaborative approach to your pet’s care.
I definitely recommend this veterinary clinic to those who are seeking care in the Finksburg/Westminster/Carroll Co. area 🙂
