Editorial review from Citysearch 11/2/2016

DO NOT GO HERE! \r TERRRRRRIIIIBLLLLEEE!\r This was the strangest, most unprofessional vet clinic I've ever been to in my nearly 20 years of pet ownership. When we arrived with our kitten we had to wait over an hour to be seen (despite the fact that we were the ONLY people there). The first time visit paperwork was more of a social media release contract than a file concerning our pet's health. One page asked to use our cat's photo on their Facebook page, the next asked for my personal info, how I found out about their office and how I planned on paying. \r After arriving, we were made to wait in a small room with cardboard boxes, lawn chairs and holes in the walls. Of all the people who walked by us in the hour we were left sitting in that storage room, only one person spoke to us. The woman who had originally checked us in was back to ask me to like them on Facebook and to vote on their staff Halloween pumpkin carving contest.\r When we finally made it into an exam room, there were two techs more concerned with playing with my kitten and ""training"" him than they were with taking his vitals. When the first tech left the room, the second stayed and tried to confine our cat to the table. Each time he would try to step outside of the boundaries she'd created with her arms, she'd slap him on the face and tell him no. After several instances of this, our kitten (8 weeks old, under 2 lbs. and just curiously sniffing around the table) started to growl. I've never heard him do it before so I started getting uncomfortable. I mentioned that the behavior was uncharacteristic and instead of allowing me to comfort my pet, she stuffed him under her arm and covered his whole head with her hand. I COULDN'T SEE ANY PART OF HIS BODY EXCEPT FOR HIS NOSE! I asked her to let him go and said that if he was misbehaving I'd prefer she put him back in his carrier. She said he was fine and that she was just asserting her dominance. \r I wanted to walk out. I was livid!! \r The vet then came in and basically told me my cat would be hard to raise because he was weened to early, put him on the floor and just watched him wander around. I asked if he needed vaccinations and she said ""probably, but he's a little too thin"". She said she'd vaccinate him if I wanted and said he'd probably be fine. I refused the vaccines because I was so sketched out so she insisted on giving him a dewormer (there was no stool sample taken). \r I packed him up, paid, and got out of there like my butt was on fire.\r \r I feel so bad for exposing my animal to the experience there, and I myself feel violated and offended. This isn't a vet practice, its a scam office. DON'T GO HERE!! I can't emphasize it enough. more

I have been thrilled with the care my pet has received since we switched to Sykesville Veterinary Clinic. It is so clear how much they care about the well being and comfort of your pet. They are the best around and I definitely recommend them. more

Dr. Colwell is a great vet. She is very good at communicating with me as a pet owner on what exactly is needed, and what to expect from treatments or with my pet's condition. I absolutely recommend Sykesville Veterinary Clinic. more

I took my dog here for the first time (after switching because I moved) and my experience was HORRIBLE.. When we were called into the room I sat down with my dog, (there was two young girls in the room) they wanted to put her on the table immediately so I put her up there thinking they were ready to begin..wrong..as soon as she was on the table a very young girl clenched her with one arm under her belly and one arm under her neck (not once did they inform me they were going to handle her like that)..then they didnt even do anything with her for the first few minutes she was just standing there clenching my dog (at my previous vet the dog did not get on the table until the dr was ready to begin, no one is standing there holding my dog but me, and as soon as she was done the dog gets down) then the girl proceeds to tell me they hold the animal like that incase they bite..I said I can't hold her? She said no because we know how to hold them ( if my dog would have turned her head to the right she could have bit the girl right in the face) so that did not make any sense to me not to mention it was making my dog very uncomfortable because the previous vet DID NOT hold her down like that so she was not used to that..finally after a good 5-10 minutes of my dog being on the table and only having her temperature taken another dr came in to take blood..after getting the needle in she realized it wasn't in the vein so she pulls it halfway out and starts turning it left and right to find it..then after that failed they called another dr in to try the other leg..so of course at this point my dog is freaked out and majorly stressed (not once did anyone talk to my dog to calm her down or pet her to comfort her or anything like that, and infact they just kept saying to me shes fine, she's ok shes alright, when clearly she was not) the other woman comes in and starts to grab her leg and my dog started squirming and rather than let her relax or calm her down they just clenched tighter so after seeing this and hearing my dogs breathing I told them she needed to let her go and that they were making me very uncomfortable which what I wanted to say was that they were p**sing me off..so they put that on hold and started her physical..after all that was over the girl would not let me pick her up to take her off the table.. she did and then she would not let go of her collar even though we were in a closed room..**my dog was abused by previous owners and is very attatched to me and nervous around new people and i made them aware of this..thinking that they would be more cautious with her ..but no..at my previous vet there was ONE person in the room the whole time, just you and the doctor, not three strangers crowding around your pet..I did not at all like the way they handled my dog and I felt so bad that I put her through that..this may have been a one time incident but I would never take the chance of putting her through that again to find out..I would never recommend ANYONE to this place. more
