I started going here because it was close to my new home. However, I regret this! After the heartbreak I have been through, I don't care how far I have to drive I will be loyal to my vet Dr. Karol Sabo at Fairbanks Animal Clinic (713) 937-1144-he is the best vet ever!\r
Last year, I had to put 2 of my 3 dogs down. One of my dogs started to drag her leg and Dr. Closs said she ""appeared"" to have arthritis! He barely looked at her! As I insisted a closer look at her, he then told me to let her go so she could walk, he opened the exam door towards the public (I was like ughhhh are you seriously going to do that?) and my dog ran towards another dog in the office. So HE grabbed her & pushed her on the floor and YELLED at ME saying to never to do that again because I WAS ENDANGERING his patients! WTF? He was the one who told me to let her go, so he blames and yells at me for his stupidity?! He put her back in the room and said ""I think she's developing arthritis"" didn't even give her medicine. I left the office crying for how he treated us & didn't even give her a good exam-but why should I be surprised-the other 3 times I had been there B4 he never examined properly! He even popped another one of my dog's butt glands in the exam room! Horrible experience!\r
I took my dog to my old vet Dr. Karol Sabo & he performed tests & x-rays, & found out she had a nervous system disease that would impair her walking ""Degenerative Myelopathy."" The treatment is VERY expensive and I have (had) two other dogs to care for that eventually, I had to let her go. It was very hard, but there was nothing I could do. What bothers me to this day is the way he treated us and if I had not done research online of the symptoms, or gone to my old vet Dr. Sabo, I would have been left with Dr. Closs' unattentive and inaccurate ""arthritis diagnosis."" One month later my other dog was diagnosed with Carcinoma Cancer-something Dr. Closs never noticed either! He only lived a month. I will NEVER go here again!
Cons: Vet doesn't seem to care about pets and has no attention to detail during exam, he doesn't listen!
