Watch Your Wallet 6/17/2013

Be sure to get the pricing for services ahead of time. I had taken the same three cats to PV Animal Hospital three years in a row for their annual vaccinations. The first time in 2010 I was charged $193.00 for all three cats. A fair price. Then in 2011 and 2012 I was charged $173.00 for the three cats. Once again, a fair price. I set up an appointment and took them in last week. When I went to pay the bill, I was told it was $353.00. That's an increase of $180.00. I can understand a small increase but this is unreasonable. I was not advised at any time beforehand that the services would be so much more. Maybe I should have asked, but after three years of being charged about the same, I didn't expect such a larger bill. I feel the right thing for them to have done would have been to advise me of the new price when I made the appointment or when I showed up for the appointment. I can't be sure but I suspect I was charged so much more because on this last trip I declined extra services and test suggested by Dr. Babcock. They wanted to clean one cats teeth for a minimum of $512.00 and do a kidney test on another for $253.00 although the cat showed no signs of kidney problems. I will look elsewhere for my veterinary needs. more

GREAT VETS AND STAFF 11/14/2007

I took my cat to Dr. Babcock after another vet couldn't find the problem with my precious Smokey. After doing an exam, listening as I talked of what was happening with Smokey, and drawing some blood for some lab work, Dr. Babcock diagnosed my little girl with a fatty liver disease. After hospitalization for a few days and treatment, Smokey came home and has been just purrfect since. The staff was phenomenal. They were so gentle and loving with my baby. They allowed me to visit everyday and stay as long as I wanted to be with her. I will be forever grateful for the care Smokey received. I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know that has any kind of pet. Just another note: During my visits I saw all different kinds of animals being treated at Palo Verde Animal Hospital. It was really an extraordinary experience. more

Love This Place! 5/21/2007

I fell in love with this place the first time I stepped into the lobby. Small, friendly and excellent service! We adopted a pet from the Humane Society and took her to another vet (won't mention) who didn't look at the paperwork I handed them and they provided a test that cost a small fortune that had already been done at the Humane Society. I changed vets because of that incident and found Palo Verde Animal Hospital. They took the paperwork and entered everything into their computer. They treated my new dog so kindly and lovelingly and spent a long time describing the tendancies of the breed. They've faxed me a copy of the vaccine history when I needed to board my dog suddenly when I was on vacation. Their prices are a bit high, but for the service, I am willing to pay a bit extra because I know they will treat my pet with the best care possible. more

The good with the bad... 6/17/2006

There are a couple reasons I won’t give a perfect rating to this business. 1)The cost of our visits. Every vet does charge the same, at least where I go, but it’s just one of those expenses that hits you out of the blue. “I’m sorry, how much did that just cost?” LOL And 2) when we paid over $400 for the doctor to fish out a foxtail in my dogs chin (pretty darn painful I might add) and nothing was found. Actually, some of it was for some antibiotics but that didn’t seem to help. Actually my hubby and his brother managed to get the foxtail out with success a week later. I have never worked in a vet’s office but it still sounds ridiculous to pay so much when a remedy is not reached for my dog in this circumstance. 3) When I took my very old cat (she lived to be 20) to the vet a couple years ago the vet suggested I get all this dental work done with her. There was nothing that needed to be done because of cavities but it was just preventative things which would cost a few hundred dollars. Needless to say I didn’t do it and my cat passed away in December of other causes. Now that I got the bad points out of the way…. LOL Up until last December we had 1 dog and 3 cats. My oldest had to be put down and I wanted to save her remains. It was a tough time because I was 36 weeks pregnant and I had Maddie since she was a little kitten. My hubby brought her in and the nurses took care of her. Previous times Maddie had been there they thought she was the greatest, they took a picture of her and gushed over how regal and beautiful she was so I knew they would take care of her. Well, a week later I had my son and we were in a financial crunch for a while with my new little guy around. During that time we were sent a bill from the offices and we couldn’t pay it for over a month. I never received another statement, but instead a card signed by all the nurses for Maddie. They also sent a booklet on how to grieve for your pet. I was taken back and very appreciative of that. As for all of our other pets the hospital sends us notices for when the pets are due for there shots and they are treated very well. I never doubt the humane way they handle them. We just had a bad experience once and hated paying so much for it. more
