Editorial review from Citysearch 10/1/2012

Hands down the most wonderful and compassionate veterinarians and veterinary staff I have ever encountered. I have used them for many years with all of my animals and foster animals. They have never once failed me or made me feel uncomfortable...quite the opposite in fact! They go out of their way to be as helpful and accommodating as possible. I recommend them to all of my friends and family members. more

My own opinion 4/17/2011

I also must answer to pmburk's review. I first encountered the staff at Ridglea Animal Hospital last June when my 12 year old Samoyed became seriously ill. We had recently moved to the area and did not yet have a vet. I called and was told to bring her right in. I knew she was going to have to be put down. She was that sick. The staff was very helpful and kind. I was allowed to be in the exam room and Dr. Knapp was very sympathetic and offered advice that there was some treatments that could alleviate some of the problems, but not cure her. I chose to have her put down, for the fact that she would continue to suffer and I couldn't do that to her. I was given the option to be present when they put her down, but I chose not to because I knew I wouldn't be able to let them go through with it and she would continue to suffer. A week later we received a sympathy card from the clinic which I felt was very thoughtful. A week after that we got two 8 week old Miniature Schnauzers and they have been under the care of Dr. Ellison from the start. I have always been in the exam room with them, and they have always received good care from the staff. While we don't see Dr. Knapp very often, Dr. Ellison is patient, kind and obviously loves the animals in his care. The clinic in the previous comment doesn't sound at all like Ridglea. more

Compelled to write and with favorable opinion! 4/8/2011

After taking my dogs to Ridglea Animal Hospital and Drs. Knapp & Ellison for the past 10 years, I have nothing but a very high recommendation to offer. What pmburk said in their review sounds TOTALLY unlike any experience I've had at Ridglea Animal Hospital. When I had to put down my first dog, the welcomed me being present for the euthanasia and were very supportive of me during that time. Also with regard to exams, they have ALWAYS had me present in the exam rooms with my pet, which only makes sense, so that you're present to answer any questions in regard to your pet's condition as you've observed. So, that other review seems to me as if it could only be misplaced and perhaps about some other veterinary hospital. more

Not compassionate, suspicious/secretive practices 8/4/2010

After moving into the Ridglea area 7 years ago, I took my cat to this vet for upper respiratory issues. I dropped her off before work and later that day the vet told me she had pneumonia and was in bad shape. By 5 pm when I called to pick her up, they told me she needed to be euthanized. I asked if I could be present during the procedure (had done this in the past with another pet - never regretted it), was told no, that ""wasn't their policy."" I then asked to come see her to at least say goodbye, was told no again. They told me I could come ""pick up the body"" in about 30 minutes. I was the only person this particular cat liked, and I still feel tremendous guilt (yes, 7 years later) about the fact that she died without me and probably felt abandoned and scared with a bunch of strangers in her final hours. The fact that they do not allow presence during euthanization makes me wonder if they are doing something inhumane, or if perhaps my cat died or was killed in their care, and they needed to cover it up. They take your pet from you at the door and do not allow you past the front desk into the exam rooms, which I find extremely suspicious. What goes on back there that they need to hide? I do not trust any vet that won't allow you to stay with your pet and SEE what is happening. more

Best Animal Hospital by far 4/30/2009

I was previously taking my three dogs to Banfield at Petsmart when someone recommended Ridglea. Before that I used Westcreek and then Metro West. On my first visit we fell in love with the wonderful staff and doctors that took care of our babies. The bill was less than half of what I paid at Banfield for the same services. Now I recommend them to everyone where I work and have already met at least 8 other people that have already been taking their pets there for years! They are truly gracious and I won't take my pets anywhere else ever again. I can't say it enough. Pros: Tried so many places and they get my vote! more
