Caring, professional docs and staff 2/23/2011

We have been taking our pets to Parkwood Animal Hospital since it opened in 1983. Dr. Tarkington and Dr. Rowe have helped us keep our dogs and cats healthy and when it was time to say good-bye to them, they were sensitive and caring towards us and our animals. More than once Dr. T was willing to come to the car to administer the final injection rather than traumatize an animal already in stress and discomfort. I remember another time when he sat on the treatment room floor with me, a reference book in his lap, as he desperately tried to figure out what was wrong with my suddenly sick dog. I have always felt that my pets' treatment was the result of a colaborative decision-making process whenever possible. Once we took a sick gerbil to the practice, and they didn't bat an eye. They treated the gerbil with care. When our daughter was a teenager she joined the ranks of many through the years who worked at the clinic in afternoons after school. That strengthened our bond with the docs and staff. I like that expansion, sales, and the bottom line have not been Dr. T's priorities. Animals and their people have been. Thank you, Dr. Tarkington, Dr. Rowe, Dr. Anderson, and staff. more

SIMPLY THE BEST! 6/10/2010

Through many years with many dogs, and with specialty treatments in big cities and small towns, I have never had a better vet. Bruce Tarkington has diagnosed conditions the NCSU vet hospital missed. And his treatment approach respects your pet's comfort and well-being and your emotional and financial needs. He talks to you like you're smart, giving you treatment options, and will discuss them with you as long as you need. He is accessible to you and has respected by the specialists you might need. Wherever you live, he is worth the drive. Pros: Smart, caring, dedicated, affordable more

The kind of doctors I want to be 2/22/2010

Dr. Rowe & Dr. Tarkington have been my vets for over 20 years. Not once have I ever witnessed anything that would give me pause about utilizing their services. I was stationed in Norfolk, VA, and still brought my kids to them. Yes, they are that good. I am a vet student and they are the type of doctors that I want to be. Pros: professionalism, dedication to patient care, client friendly Cons: I'm so far away from them more

Tried and True! 6/14/2006

I lived in Durahm in the mid-80's and used this vet hospital and was delighted with the place. I moved back a year ago and am traveling cross town to have my dogs seen by Dr. Tarkington. He has a clientele that includes show dogs and breeders - this in itself speaks highly of the clinic and staff. more
