I took my 12yo black cat to Talega Animal Hospital, as he had lost weight and within two days became listless and fur very dull. It was THE day before we were to go on a much anticipated 8 day vacation. They did the typical blood and urine tests and I left him with them while I went to work. They called me right away to explain what was found and options for next steps. It turns out he needed to stay over the weekend for fluid therapy as a last resort, and with a relative lined up to fill in for us while we were on our trip, they continued the fluid therapy. There were different vets who were on staff during the week we were gone, and each would call with an update and were very compassionate and took alot of time to talk with me and answer any questions, and they are sensitive to costs so they provide information on costs as well. Their quick care and careful explanations helped me make the best decisions to save my kitty's life, he has made a full recovery. Months later my other cat is experiencing difficulties and they remember the first cat and ask about him, and are again providing excellent and compassionate care for my second kitty, who's prognosis is not as great unfortunately. But I know I have the best pet partners to help me care for her. The front staff are nice but they are more doing a job and processing people in and out, it is really the vets and the vet assistants behind the scenes who are very compassionate and ultimately the one's caring for your pet. Always ask for costs up front, don't wait until you are at the front desk. They usually even tell me other places to go that are 'a little cheaper' but it is never enough to warrant an extra trip for my pet, it is minimal differences, like 20 bucks. Pet care is expensive there is no doubt about it, but it isn't because they are in Talega. I think they are priced fairly. I have not used their grooming services so cannot comment on that. Facilities always clean.
Pros: A group of very experienced compassionate vets
Cons: Different vets on different days
