We take ALL our pets to Vestavia Animal Clinic (VAC) , even though there are have TWO reputable and excellent animal clinics MUCH closer to our house. We go to the trouble because the quality of care our dog and cats get at VAC is superb. VAC is a first-class facility run by caring and professional people. I watched their work for years. If there were ANY signs of lack of commitment for the welfare of animals or the slightest inclination toward lack of kindness, I would know, because that?s what I do for a living ? assess people. I haven?t got the foggiest idea what motivates the reviewer started the disingenuous thread about a dog beaten to death. There must an ugly personal issue here, because it simply could not have happened. If it did, I would know about it. The writer does not know that the facility owner is a lady (called the doctor a ?he), which lets me know that what s/he is either a badly intentioned individual with a personal agenda, or a patsy who passes on hearsay events, but never bothers to verify the ""information."" If I were the manager of CitySearch, I would not allow anonymous reviews. Anybody can write anything anonymously. ""A lie, repeated often enough, will end up as truth."" This quote is usually attributed to Dr Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda (1933-1945), one of the most evil people who has ever lived. Goebels exploited the German radio, press, cinema, and theater to launch propaganda against the World. Luckily, he did away with himself after Germany's defeat. I know what motivated Goebels: hatred. What motivates the person who started this lie about a dog being beaten at VAC remains a mystery to me, but I can take a couple of guesses, none of which are kind. To those who read these reviews: Do yourselves a favor, don?t believe lies! If you live near VAC and need a pet clinic, trust VAC to be absolutely the best service you can get at the fairest prices in town.
Pros: Kind, complete, excellent prices
