  • 1. Super Vet!!!!!

    by: Jennypueblo

    Drove 2hours from Pueblo to see Dr. Schulman , and it was well worth it. Heard about the doctor through IMPS, where I adopted my dog Penny a mini-pin. She must have had a major siezure and then continued with non-stop siezures. He knew exactly what was going on and kept her until he could get them stopped. When I saw Penny not biting at the air and able to play fetch my family cried. The vet in Pueblo saw her 3 times and she just continued to get worse and was starting to go down hill. After lots of money and time I decided to get her help with Dr. Schulman, best thing I could have done. He saved her life. I would tell anyone that has a pet to take them there. The prices were very low and well worth the money.

    Pros

    Very knowledgable

  • 2. Great Vet Great Price

    by: pugchin

    Hands down, Animal Health Care Specialists is the best veterinary clinic that we have ever visited. Thank you Dr. Schulman. It's a little crowded at times, but who wants to pay the overhead of some fancy vet practice.

    Pros

    Dr. Schulman is very knowledgeable

    Cons

    sometimes crowded

  • 3. Terrible Vet

    by: IcareMoreThanHim

    Horrible experience!!! This guy is an insecure little weasel. Tries to throw the Tails of Woe at you as a possible way to treat your pet then says no. Refuses to help my dog that has not been able to function properly as a normal dog for the past three years and he knows we cannot afford proper treatment. Refused to help because we told him we did not like being treated rudely. Since we called him out on being rude and HE GOT OFFENDED. Dr. Schulman is a nothing. If he truly cared about animals, he would put his sorry excuse for pride aside and do whatever he can. He is a disgrace to the profession. I would rather pay a bit more and deal with someone that acts professional and human, not a pompous ass! He can't handle someone giving him a "gut check" without feeling like he just got beat up on the playground. Boo hoo to the ass, Dr. Schulman for having to feel inferior to someone more intelligent and respectful than him. A RUDE POMPOUS ASS. HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR PET. He only cares about his inflated ego!!! Horrible human being!!! Sorry excuse for a man.

  • 4. Best Vet Yet

    by: 2PitBullAngels

    I am so happy that this clinic exists! We have two male pitbulls, both are rescues, and both have some SERIOUS issues due to mistreatment by their previous owners. The staff here were all very understanding and receptive to the boys, and we were amazed at how well they were treated. It is really important to us that our dogs have a good connection with their vet, and we got just what we wanted here. They weren't just another appointment. They got hugs and kisses and the techs all wanted to hear about them and their story. Dr. Schulman was very gentle...He is obviously a New Yorker, so he can seem standoffish, but we liked that he was so straightforward with his practice. He didn't try to upsell any of his products, and he was very thorough. He even taught us how to brush the dogs' teeth! The prices in this hospital are amazing. My previous vet charged over $200 EACH to neuter the dogs. I really wish we had found this place earlier. He even offers things like heartworm pills and vitamins. We used to use 1800PETMEDS, but we totally switched after our visit because this place is so much cheaper. I guess I would highly recommend this hospital to owners who are sick of dealing with vets who charge too much for too little, and are in it for the money instead of their love for the animals. We love this place!

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable straighforward vet, cheap costs, PIT BULL FRIENDLY

    Cons

    overcrowded due to the excellent care provided?

  • 5. Expert Care

    by: Farleyboy

    Dr. Schulman saved our 7 year old beagle, Farley. Our beagle had a rare auto-immune disorder that just about killed him. Due to Dr. Schulman's persistence and expert care he is now happy healthy and enjoying life. You will not find a better veterinarian or care facility anywhere.

    Pros

    Goes above and beyond to care for animals in need

    Cons

    None

  • 6. Great Staff and Doctor

    by: Lovedogs10

    Dr Schulman treated a few pets for me that no one could seem to find out or maybe even care to find out what was wrong. The staff let me drop her off and pick her up after work and return to pick her up and didn't even complain!. YOU all ROCK!! I will use you guys anytime. It's nice to know there are folks like you. Mookie and Gizmo appreciate it!!

    Pros

    They were great

  • 7. won't care for pit bull breeds

    by: wpnomad

    As a volunteer for Colorado Pit Bull Rescue, I called this office to make an appointment for my foster dog to be seen about a minor medical issue he is having. The veterinarian communicated, through his staff, that he would not work with our rescue group or treat pit bulls outside of emergency situations because he believes all pit bulls to be "intact fighting dogs". I have never in all my years of working with veterinarians from around the state, as both a foster volunteer and as a foster coordinator at a local animal shelter, encountered this type of ignorance or prejudice on the part of a professional animal care giver- in any capacity. While he may give excellent care (I cannot attest to this personally) to those animals he deems worthy of his professional services, I found the fact that he refused to treat any pit bulls, or as I understood it, a variety of other breeds he deems dangerous (ie. mastiffs) to be incredibly unprofessional, unethical, and shockingly ingnorant. On principle, I would never take any dog to this vet, regardless of the breed.

    Pros

    n/a

    Cons

    Refused to see my pitbull

  • 8. Horrible! Dr. Schulman refuses help Pit Bull Rescue

    by: PitBullRescue

    Dr. Schulman refuses to help rescued pit bulls because in his own words "they are all intact, fighting dogs". Are you a pit bull owner in CO? Do you love this breed and want to see this type of descrimination and ignorance end for this most misunderstood and abused breed? People like this need to be educated. No veterinarian can excuse this level of ignorance, but especially to refuse treating a dog in rescue and a humane organization trying to help homeless pit bulls. Please do not give this vet your business and let other know. And even better, let them know what you think directly!

    Pros

    None

    Cons

    Descriminates against dogs by breed.

  • 9. Biggest Heart on Earth

    by: ograbay

    Dr. Schulman and his staff have provided the best care I have ever seen in 7 years in the veterinary field. Unlike other vets, the priority at Animal Health Care Specialists ISN'T whether you have the money to take care of your pet properly....its making sure that Regardless of what pitfalls you are in financially, your pet has absolutely the best care available. ALWAYS.

    Pros

    Excellent care, low costs

    Cons

    still under construction!

    by: pechedog

    Dr. Schulman has done wonders for some of the animals from our shelter (Maxfund) He is very very reasonably priced but does an A1 job in caring for them. We have recommended him to many of our new adopters and I know they love him too!

    Needs to be a 24hr vet!
