Editorial review from Citysearch 3/23/2014

We have been using this clinic for several years now and we had to have our cat euthanized due to a cancerous tumor on her tail. The level of compassion shown by the stall here was above and beyond. Recently our little dog, Lady became lethargic and stopped eating and we were very worried about her. I brought her to Dr. Cudney and he was able to diagnose the problem very quickly as a back injury. He gave her a steroid injection and meds to take home with her. She experienced improvement in symptoms on the spot as I was paying my bill. I am so grateful to Dr. Cudney and his caring staff. I highly recommend them for excellent care of our pets. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/18/2013

I went to Doctor Cudney to get my dog prepared to move to Hawaii, they have very strict quarantine policies and require blood tests, rabies vaccines, etc. I got everything done and once my dog has his blood drawn we had to send it overnight to Kansas and they told me they would call me when the results came back in. Once they're in you have to send them to Hawaii and once they receive them the quarantine period is 120 days from that point. The reason I went in early is because i was wanting to do the 5 day quarantine instead. Well they didn't bother to call me once the results were in. After about a month I called them to ask about it. When I called, the woman at the desk informed me that I could come pick them up whenever and send them in, she said they must have misplaced my file. So now we are way behind and my dog will have to be in quarantine for 30 more days than he should have been. I wouldn't go back there for any reason. Also waiting times were pretty bad. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/16/2013

Regretfully moving on...\r I have been taking my pets to Dr. Cudney for many, many years and have decided to change veterinarians. Recently, when my dog needed emergency care after a dog attack, I was told by his receptionist... We're busy, there is nothing we can do, you will have to take your dog somewhere else. Excellent advice. The quality of service is no longer acceptable and his new staff is rude, untrained and uncaring. What an unfortunate situation for a vet's office that has done so well - but now no longer seems to care. Farewell. more

Old school, amazing knowledge! 2/3/2011

Dr. Cudney has been working with my pets for 15 years. I have 2 dogs and a cat. Dr. Cudney has a small office, very personal and he knows his stuff. You won't find the newest, most updated office furniture and equipment, but you won't pay and arm and a leg for your visit either. He always gives you several options and collaborates with specialty vets in abq. Great place! more

I won't be going back 7/9/2009

Based on these reviews, I decided to take my 14 year old cat with a suspected tumor to see Dr. Horn. The very first thing that I noticed about Dr. Horn was that she didn't introduce herself or bother to ask my name or my cat's name or ask anything about him. Sure, she was very systematic during the examination, and I'm sure she's got lots of experience, but a vet has to comfort the owner as much as the pet- and I wasn't happy about that, either. I have never seen a vet draw a sample from the foreleg of a cat before (it's usually from the scruff of the neck)- I told her that he is very sensitive about his feet, so naturally, when she tried to grab his foot and stick a needle just above his paw, he panicked, got upset and had to be wrapped in a towel and held down by two techs. in what ended up being a very traumatic experience for all involved. One of the techs. even made the comment that my cat needed to be wrapped in a pink towel because he was acting like a little girl. What?! I was then ushered back into the waiting room for the results of the lab work (15 min.), where I waited for a half an hour because the techs. thought I had left. Not that they bothered to poke their head into the waiting room. I was then told by a tech.- ""oh his lab work is fine."" I guess I expected to go over the results with the vet, but apparently, she was having a bad day. I won't risk the chance that she might have another bad day when my cat has to go through surgery. I'll keep searching for a vet that is consistently compassionate- to pets and their owners. Cons: Insensitive to pets and owners more

There are better clinics 6/24/2008

Have used this place for routine care for over 4 years. They have become increasingly insensitive to animals and very task oriented. My small dog was treated very harshly at the last visit, and is now so scared of this place I will have to start over somewhere else. Their staff was aggressive and condescending. It's time these people retired. Pros: n/a Cons: Too aggressive with the animals more

Excellent !!!! 3/5/2008

My Cats lower left front bottom tooth was sticking out 45 degrees forward. He was in a lot of pain, not eating or drinking, just moving his tongue was painful for him. After Sandia looked at it they scheduled him for 8am surgery. I picked him up at 1pm and he ate half a can of food went in the backward in the sun and bathed himself. Thanks from both Dude and myself for such a wonderful experience! Sandia Animal Clinic Rocks!\r Sincerely, John Blevins and The Durango Dude. Pros: Close to my house and I didn't have morgage it to pay the bill! Cons: None I could see! more

Like the Vets and staff!!!! 10/9/2007

good Vets, sensible practice -- sensible prices -- nice and accomodating staff -- willing to work with \r owner preferences Pros: small 2 Vet practice so you dont get lost and retain the personal feeling Cons: can't think of any more

Aweseome vet! 7/4/2006

Dr. Horn is very caring, and very knowledgable. Sandia Animal Clinic in general receives a high recommendation from this dog person! Pros: Proper care and advice, friendly staff, both doctors are excellent. Cons: The parking is a bit difficult, and it's easy to miss it from the street. more
