  • 1. My local vet

    by: tiggerdy

    Dr. Read is our vet and we absolutely love him! He was recommended by my mom as she takes her cats & dog there for check-ups and treatments. The staff are all very friendly, welcoming and super knowledgeable. They have great hours that give working families the option of having later weekday appointments or even Saturday AM appointments. The boarding facilities for cats is very clean and interactive. The cats have both views to the outside and also the lobby area. This is great for us as Oliver is a very social kitty. The cat condos are well-sized and the staff is very kind and attentive.\r\n\r\nUnfortunately we had an emergency a few months back, but Dr. Read & his staff quickly got us in and started treatment right away. A few years back we noticed an issue with Oliver's eye and went to see Dr. Read-- while he is an absolutely wonderful vet, he was quick to admit that he was not 100% sure as to what the issue was and quickly referred us to a specialist. That was the best move as Oliver has uveitis that is now being treated under the supervision of a veterinary ophthalmologist.\r\n\r\nAll in all, I can't say enough about the great staff and facilities at Ark of the Dunes. If you're in the area, I'd highly recommend this facility for your animals. Oliver is my fuzzy kid and I wouldn't trust him with anyone else.

    Pros

    Newer facility; super friendly and knowledgeable staff; great boarding facilities.

    Cons
