  • 3. Great care

    by: nheacock

    Bright Eyes and Bushy Tails is a great veterinarian clinic. They have many knowledgeable vets, and a very friendly staff. They always call to check on my pets after a vet appointment. It is comforting to know that an emergency vet clinic is already familiar with my pets, should an emergency ever arise.

    Pros

    Organized and friendly

    Cons

    Pricey

  • 7. I'm happy they are available!

    by: rap7176

    I've not had to take any of my pets there, but I will if I need to, as they are the closest emergency vet. I've heard only good things about them. They even offer a discount to our local rescue, though I wish they could offer a little bit more of a discount, as we do give them quite a lot of business.

    Pros

    Great service!

    Cons

    A little pricey.

  • 8. Always open!

    by: ShannaBanana

    When your pet gets sick unexpectedly, it's so nice to know you have an option! This facility is open 24/7/365 and the staff are warm, welcoming and knowledgable. I was impressed by the followup I received after taking a sick cat there on a Sunday. I have a vet call me later that day as well as the next day and half way through that week to check on my cat. It's expensive, but worth it!

    Pros

    Always open

    Cons

    Higher priced

  • 9. If I ever need emergency pet help...

    by: sjcmom

    I've never had to use BEBT for my own pets, but I know several of our Safe Haven animals have used their service, as well as the pets of some of our other volunteers. I hear nothing but resounding praise for everything from the comfortable atmosphere to the wonderful caring staff. I've been told they take their time explaining what's going on with your pet, and that their compassion is great. I hope I never need their services, but if I ever need emergency pet services, you can bet that' where I'll be going.

    Pros

    Kind, caring staff

    Cons

    Can't think of any

  • 12. Have yet to use but only good is heard

    by: mamabear603

    I have yet to use this service but have heard nothing but the best. With living in a small town I ASSUMED that our local vet would help out in cases of emergency.... (NOT THE CASE). If anything was to happen to any of my pets I have to drive 30 mins. to BEBT. I have heard they have an excellent kind and knowledgeable staff which cares for your animals. But with them being the only ones available they are able to charge a little more. I hope I will never have to use BE&BT but I do know they are there and care.

    Pros

    Only emergency vet near, knowledgeable, and kind

    Cons

    expensive

  • 13. Only through the grapevine

    by: StacyLR

    I have only been to this particular vet once. It was 5 years ago. I was very happy with everything! The only reason I went there is because they are the only "pocket pet" vets in the area, at least at that time. \r\n I live approx. 25 min away and have a local vet that I adore so I continue to stay with my particular vet due to location and be satisfied.\r\n However, if either one of my situations changed I would go to Bright Eyed and Bushy Tails.\r\n I have only heard GREAT comments about this place! The vets are wonderful and knowledgeable! Absolutely everyone has RAVED about this place. They are very compasionate to both pets and humans. I couldn't ask for anything more!

    Pros

    knowledgeable care

    Cons

    haven't heard of any

  • 14. Give the vets a clapping hand!!!!

    by: rinthea

    As the director of an animal rescue group www.wesavepets.com in a small rural county we rely on emergency vets to help us in the middle of the night after we have rescued a sick or injured cat or dog. \r\n\r\nBE&BT -although expensive- They give you exactly what you pay for. They have the BEST customer service from the time you walk in the door to the time after your animal has been home for a while! \r\n\r\nThey have top notch vets and vet techs that do whatever they can to help and keep it real. More importantly they tell you in terms that you can understand what is happening and aproximatly what it will cost.\r\n\r\nMy hats go off to BE&BT for all of their hard work and dedication....The price you pay for a call in the middle of the night and for the best vet care you can get is so worth it!\r\n

    Pros

    Fantastic Staff, Great customer service and follow up

    Cons

    Expensive

  • 15. Always just a phone call away

    by: kcarney

    We have only used Bright Eyes a few times. For each time it was for a different pet emergency-ranging from a rabbit, cat and dog. Each time they were very receptive to our needs and put the animal's welfare first. Eventhough the outcome for these animals was not good-they were able to ease their suffering and allow them to pass comfortably. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

    Pros

    Available all hours-very knowledgeable-caring

    Cons

    price
