I took my Italian Greyhound there for her first exam and the experience turned out much better than I thought it would! First of all, they are very compassionate and do know a lot about the breed of my dog. Maggie was a little scared of the scale and not once did they show any kind of agitation or impatience towards her. They were completely understanding. Dr. Smith in turn was very thorough with her examination and did indeed answer all of my questions in a very caring way. Most impressive was the fact that they DO NOT just tell you to get vaccinations or certain services to make more money from you. They totally care about your pet and do not make you pay for services that are unnecessary. That tells me a lot about them and their wonderful character. Not only that, but Maggie's visit turned out to be much less expensive than I thought it would. So all I can say is, "Thank you Uptown Vet"!
