Sajo Farm is ridiculously expensive and they charge you for every little thing. The kind of place that gets your dog in the back to check on the problem you want them to check on...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/12/2013

I am new to the area, my relatives bring their dog snoopy to you. I walked in to get a tour and to ask questions about boarding. The receptionist i spoke with was very friendly and gave me some literature to look over. She paged the kennel person, but she did not come up and then the receptionist ended up giving me a tour. It seems like there was to much chaos going on in the reception area. The one reception i was speaking with i think Dora or Dana had to answer the phone 4 times while helping me. The other receptionists were busy answering phones and helping the customers. The reception area should be busy but not that busy to where customers dont get the help they need. Also the hospital seems very dinge and outdated. The floors and the paint color remind me of an institution. I would have to say the staff was very nice, but the feeling of being so busy and under staffed wouldnt allow me to make the boarding reservation. more

A Caring Place 1/25/2012

I feel awful about what happened to Byrne and his/her dog. I can certainly understand why that experience would lead to the review given. But my experience with them has been so vastly different.\r \r No, they are not inexpensive, but for the fuzzier members of my family, value is more important than price. Frankly, I do not know enough about veterinary medicine to address that issue. I can only address how my pets and I have been treated for nearly 20 years.\r \r The entire hospital is clean, but the atmosphere is anything but sterile. It is warm and welcoming, probably because everyone there is warm and welcoming. They take time to get to know your pet, answer any questions, explain any procedures,and make sure that both the pet and the pet owner are as relaxed as possible.\r \r They are the only people who could easily handle my rescued psychotic Lhasa Apso. When my daughter accidentally ran over the front legs of our Schipperke, a vet tech who had only come in to check on her schedule ended up staying 'til midnight to keep the dog company and to give me regular updates on her condition. After every non-routine visit I have received a follow-up call the next morning to check on progress.\r \r They do not just treat my pets as a collection of symptoms, but as beloved members of the family. And they treat the family, too. When the Schipperke/van wheel incident happened, I was invited to bring over her favorite foods and stay with her as long as I wanted. Each time we reached that awful decision that we must say good-bye to one of our dogs, their compassion was deep and genuine. \r \r It was only after found Sajo Farm that I discovered that a dog could actually pull on the leash to get into the vet's office. There's an intangible atmosphere of caring in there that will keep me coming back as long as I have pets. \r \r more

Sajo Farm made my dog deaf! 10/30/2009

Sajo Farm is ridiculously expensive and they charge you for every little thing. The kind of place that gets your dog in the back to check on the problem you want them to check on, but while they do that they do a whole bunch of other stuff you didn't ask for and charge you for it. Much like a sleezy mechanic would. My dog had surgery on his foot and when the doctor put the bandage on, she put it on too tight and it cut off circulation to my dog's foot. I brought him back in so they could look at it, and, even though it was the doctor's fault, I had to pay $40 just for the doctor to ""take a look at him."" The same dog just had surgery on his ear because of a hematoma. Doctor Lidell gave him some ear drops as medication and they made him deaf! My dog is now hearing impaired because of Sajo Farm, and the only thing Doctor Lidell could say was, ""I don't know what to do because this has never happened before,"" and, ""Well, he'll adapt."" Adapt?? Seriously?? What if some doctor made you deaf? There's no way I'd accept, ""Well, you'll adapt"" as my prognosis. Also the whole reason, as stated by the staff at Sajo Farm, for hematoma surgery is to prevent the dog from having another hematoma. Well it hasn't been a month and he's already got another hematoma on the very same ear. The stitches aren't even out yet, and he's got another hematoma. Kinda makes me wonder what I paid $1000 for. Next week the stitches come out, and that's the last day my dog and I step foot in Sajo Farm. Pros: Friendly staff at the front desk Cons: Doctor Ladell made my dog deaf, expensive, slow, unhelpful more
