Best

Just moved here from Chicago and of course my dog became ill from stress. Visited this Vet after recommendation from a new neighbor.

Worst

I can no longer recommend this vet. We took our cat there for a urinary blockage ad were told $600-700. I picked the cat up the two days later and was handed a bill for $1600+! So...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/3/2014

Do NOT take your animals here! We HAD a 10 year old Boston Terrier at the time and took her in for some routine shots, when we got her back, she couldn't move and didn't eat. We were very concerned, but the vet assured it was due to the shots and she'd be fine in a week. Well, she wasn't, she developed a permanent limp in her back legs and her health declined each year until we HAD to put her down after 3 more years as she was vomiting and urinating blood. We took her into another vet to find out what the deal was, and they said she was given too many shots by this vet in one sitting, of course they refused to testify against SAH, as they must have an unwritten bond to protect each other. Needless to say, after a 2nd opinion and much research, Small Animal Hospital killed our dog due to negligence, and it was a slow, painful death, as to which they excepted ZERO responsibility and to be honest, were quite rude about our questions. If you LOVE your animals and don't want them to be murdered, I suggest going somewhere else!!!\r \r RIP Roxy, you didn't deserve what this place put you through!!! more

Overpriced and poor customer care... AVOID THIS VET! 8/5/2010

I can no longer recommend this vet. We took our cat there for a urinary blockage ad were told $600-700. I picked the cat up the two days later and was handed a bill for $1600+! Some of the charges are questionable and we were double billed for procedures twice. Very unprofessional. Additionally neither my wife nor I appreciated the manner in which we were spoken to by the vet. I took the cat back for a simple checkup and the vet wanted to do nearly $300 worth of more tests, and none of them dealing directly with checking kidney function. I felt as though they were padding the bill with unnecessary procedures. I knew they were pricey but $1600+ is RIDICULOUS! more

Best vets I've met! 10/17/2009

I've taken my animals to SAH for 25 years. Pros: Thorough, caring, kind, skilled Cons: Expensive! more

Good neighborhood vets 9/11/2009

I have been to four of the vets at Small Animal Hospital after my pet went into kidney failure, possibly due to contaminated pet food. One of the vets was pretty insistent on euthanizing the cat, a second vet trained me to give IV fluids at home even though she really pushed "E&D" (euthanasia and disposal)--but I just couldn't let my cat die alone in the hospital. After some research and a third opinion (and lots of advice, hope and alternative medicine) from an out-of-town veterinarian--I started using Small Animal Hospital as my primary neighborhood vet, and about 6 months after the kidney crash, my cat started to stabilize and resume her former health and quality of life. She is now almost 18--it's been over a year since she was declared "dead." I LOVE the staff and technicians at this clinic--my favorite vet is Dr. Bennetts--also a rabbit specialist, fyi. For the vet who will keep your costs down, won't scare you, and reassures you when it's something minor rather than catastrophizing, see Dr. Keefe. Based on my experience, this clinic is well-equipped to deal with most problems, and I have nothing but appreciation for the folks at SAH. However, if you are in a position where you are facing lengthy hospitalization and/or euthanasia and need the most knowledgeable vet possible and more options, I would have recommend a different vet clinic--see my other review. Pros: reliable, friendly, efficient staff and doctors Cons: a bit overpriced, not all vets are the same more

Excellent diagnosticians, excellent communication 6/29/2009

Buddy's jaw dropped open and wouldn't close! I believe that every vet there saw him. They ran every possible test, expained how to feed him and get water into him until we could find out what was wrong, were very concerned. It took a few days, but they did find out that he has idopathic trigeminal neuropathy. How many vets would have found that? They told me what to expect (it would go away on its own and it did!). They were calm, professional, thorough, and determined to help us. Pros: Knowledgable vets, clinic has a lab Cons: Cost, hours more

Great Vet 5/6/2009

Dr. Marheine is a terrific vet. She has cared for my dogs and late cat for years. She saved the life of one of my dogs when nobody else was able to determine what the problem was. She currently cares for my two goldens, Misty and Kiley and they get great care. Everybody I've been in contact at this vet is very pleasant and helpful. Pros: Exceptional care shown Cons: None more

EXPERT, CARING, & COMPASSIONATE SERVICES 3/26/2009

I have been taking my Persians to this facility for 20 years. All staff have expert knowledge. Their physical exams are more thorough then that done by my internal med doc! All staff members treat you as family and they are professional but unassuming in attitude. One could certainly locate a cheaper vet but 'cheap' is many times not the best or wisest consideration when it comes to the care of your beloved pet. Very nice facility any way you look at it. Pros: facility, expert knowledge, friendly, treat pets as family Cons: Services are probably not the cheapest more

life savers 3/18/2009

The vets here are experienced. I have never been treated so well. I used to go to another clinic for their cheap cost. My dog was sick with life threatening disease Blastomycosis. After 3 different visits with my prior vet telling me nothing was wrong with my 2 yr old rottie I took my boy to small animal on a friends recommendation. Not even knowing us they showed tremendous concern for his health. They knew that there was something wrong with him and were determined to get to the bottom of it. Even though we did not get a diagnosis that day I felt better that some one was finally going to get to the bottom of my dogs strange ailements. A few days later she called to tell me she suspected he may have blasto. We sent out a UA and a few days later he was diagnosed with Blastomycosis a rare and often misdiagnosed disease most vets know very little about this awful disease. I am greatful to have gone to a vet that knew what we were de aling with. Yes they are pricier than my original vet but had I gone to small animal off the bat I would have saved money instead of trying to cut cost and go to someone who said there was nothing wrong with my boy. I learned you don't cut cost on your animals health care. My dog is not just a dog he is a part of my family. He deserves the best treatment possible and small animal offers that. Pros: Experienced, knowledgable, kind & caring Cons: none more

Go Somewhere Else 2/8/2009

I would recommend that pet owners who truly care for their pets go somewhere else. The staff (at least the two vets who saw my pets) are snobby, rude, and are constantly looking for extra ways to make money instead of treating the immediate problem. Pros: Nice building. Friendly patients. Cons: Unprofessional staff and overpriced. more

Excellent tender loving care, exceptionally clean, very knowledgeable, answer all questions without feeling of being rushed in and out. Pros: Excellent tender loving care, exceptionally clean, very knowledgeable, answer all questions without feeling of being rushed in and out. Cons: no pet insurance more

caring veterinarian 5/12/2006

Dr. Bennetts really cares about animals and their owners and takes the time with both. Pros: professional, caring, considerate Cons: sometimes a wait more
