Until lately, I have gone to Nichols Hills Vet and purchased various supplies, taken my cats in for whatever they need. But I have now had two ""run-ins"" that have left me very displeased here. First, one of the vets, Bowers, I believe his name was (only saw him once) seemed very harsh and non-caring when I took my dog in and he was extremely frightened with two strange men trying to grab him and the harsh treatment made me put an end to the visit. That was f ew weeks ago.\r
Now, I took a severely injured baby-girl squirrel in this morning and asked if they could help her. She was dragging her back legs, so may have had a broken back, and she was bleeding from her back leg. I asked if they could help her and was coldly told that ""We don't do squirrels."" The other vet, not Bowers, stood right there and looked at me, and did nothing. No offer to even look at her.. No interest whatsoever in even checking her to see if she needed to be relieved of her misery. No compassion whatsoever seen in any of the five faces of the vets or employees. They seemed to have better things to do than take care of an injured animal...Hmmm, what is a vet for?\r
So, I left and took her to Classen View Vet, who immediately took her into their care with sincere interest in the well being of this poor creature and obvious compassion for the injury she suffered.\r
I will never take another animal to Nichols Hills vet. I'll drive all the way to Classen View, or even to Memorial Emergency Care vet before I will ever return to Nichols Hills Vet. SHAME on all of you who did nothing to help this poor animal...or me, since I just spent $125 on just supplies yesterday. I wouldn;t give another dime to you again!
Pros: They were very polite and helpful until today...
Cons: They don't do squirrels....
