broken paw 10/29/2010

Everything was good, great looking office....BUT.\r I took my cat due to unknown cause of him biting through is own skin. The cat had somehow bitten through his skin and caused his jaw to be in the open position. By the time I got to the vet the cat freed himself. The vet looked and recommended antibiotics. The cat was otherwise fine when i arrive. When i got home and removed him from his cage, he couldn?t walk, one of his legs wouldn't support his weight. I cringe to think what could of happened in the backroom. The cat was fine, other than the jaw, before I rushed him to the vet. I don?t see how the cat could have broken his leg inside the carrier. I?m not accusing the vet, but it?s all so confusing to me. more

Great Actors 5/29/2010

From the moment they whisked my pet away to "triage", to the lies about her temperature dropping and her being "critical"(finding out from the tech it did change from when I arrived) telling me my pet was "possibly not going to make it through the night", to having me sign a deposit contract without knowing whats wrong, using drama to work the client, to unneeded tests performed without ever being informed of the results, to the final bill being DOUBLE the initial quote to finding out once we were home my pet was just dehydrated like we thought..... these people are all crooks.We did not have the kind of money they stole from us on this visit. Please tell everyone you know and do not go there ever. more

Expensive, poor follow-up 1/13/2010

Nice building, state-of-the-art facilities, friendly staff. But over-priced, and they have a habit of running what seem to be unnecessary tests. Poor follow-up as well - they convince you they need to perform all these tests, then never follow-up with the results. I think they're more interested in netting the $$$ from the tests than making sure my pet is healthy. more

DON'T BE A SUCKER 12/4/2009

I've been taking my dog and cat to Acacia for the past two years. I'll admit, I'm a very slow learner. I also know nothing about being a vet. I kept assuming that my pets actually needed all the "bloodwork" and "packages" that the vets push at every visit. After my most recent visit, I have finally realized that I'm apparently just a sucker. I took my 3 year-old (and quite healthy) dog in for her annual vet check. I walked out with a bill for about $500!..that was a 6 month supply of flea medicine and a bunch of testing to confirm what I already knew, that my dog was in good shape. I'm finally switching vets. DON'T BE LIKE ME, LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE & GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. more

Great Pet Care 2/22/2009

This Animal Hospital and Veterinary office, offers great service and a clean and welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable however, they are a bit on the expensive side more

Not worth it! 9/25/2008

Wow I cannot believe how expensive this place is. At the appointment it seemed nice, building and all. They did not call back with test results when they said they would, so i was left trying to get ahold of them for a week. Not to mention they found something WRONG in my puppies test. Didn't even call? and when I was trying to call one of the gals gave my message to the wrong vet and that became their excuse for not calling me back, when they were supposed, even without the message, over a week ago! Dont go here, find a better office, especially for the money they charge. more

Overpriced for sure 9/22/2008

Check pricing with other vets before you spend the money here! Everyone is friendly, but prices are extremely high. Vet was supposed to take off some small skin tumors and only got some of them. A second opinion is always good. more

No bueno 5/12/2008

I learned the hard way, took my dog there a few months ago for an ear infection and $1,300 later we left with a few medications. They ran all these cultures and tests to find out it was just a yeast infection!!! So all we need is otomax and ear wash. Then, stuoid me, a few days ago brought my other dog in for annual exam, the Dr. barely looked at my dog and was in the room for maybe 3 minutes. I really think this place is completely overpriced and the vet thinks he is too good for the healthy pet. The best thing about the place is the building. more

Not worth it 12/29/2007

We went to Acacia to find out what was wrong with our cat. We were diagnosed with Allergies, a cold, and then finally feline diabetes. We told the vet we thought it was diabetes and walla a diagnosis and we could have diagnosed him earlier. $1000.000. I understand medicine is not a sure thing but, with the rise in feline diabetes which can often coinside with a upper respiratory infection a urine sample would have been ideal.They are expensive as a vet can get and, try to know things more yourself or you will have a lot of tests . more

Acacia Animal Hospital 7/28/2005

2 of my cats have been patients of this veterinary practice. Both cats had some pretty serious problems. I felt, at all times, that the staff was extremely competent and caring. Their treatment plans approached the level of human medicine, in my opinion. If you are looking for a good vet, look here. more
