  • 1. very efficient place

    by: dingbat24

    I took several of my animals here when my regular vet couldn't see them. The vets were nice and seemed to do a good job. They took their time explaining what they did and what the alternatives were. The place appears very fancy so I thought the prices might be high, but the bills were reasonable. I would not hesitate to use them again.

    Pros

    seem very professional

    Cons

    lobby feels like a bank

  • 2. Knowledgeable, caring staff

    by: subtle

    The vets are knowledgeable across the board but also specialize. Doc Fuller covers a nice variety of pets such as avian, reptile and small animal as well as canine and feline. Both the other vets cover large animals as well as canine, feline. Office staff is experienced and very helpful. You can rest easy that your beloved pets are in good hands here.

    Pros

    Each vet is knowledgeable

    Cons

    None

  • 3. Always have gone to EAH

    by: pinkluwink

    We have always gone to EAH a long as we have had pets in Eburg. Dr. Fuller is the absolute best vet, he and Dr. Charlton and Dr. Whitlatch have helped us through so many pet experiences. All the staff are wonderful, kind and willing to help. They are the best vet office I have found!!! I cannot explain to you how much it means, when even in your hardest times, like the loss of a loved pet, or your most exciting, like the birth of a new foal, your vets are supportive and helpful, yet always understanding.

    Pros

    Always helpful, knowledgeable, optimistic

    Cons

    None

  • 4. Dr. Fuller is #1 in our book!

    by: Cokeapelli

    Dr. Fuller has been there for so many of our animal crisis. He has treated the cats, cavy, dogs, rabbits, chicken and horses on our homestead with such great care. We might have to rename him Dr. McFuller like Mc Dreamy on Grays Anatomy. \n\nHe approaches animals with such insight to their behavior and how they respond during the trip to the vet. I have 2 dogs I request Dr. Fuller because they respond to him without fear. He gives us the full medical information and then translates the information so we understand all that is going on with our critters. \n\nHe is an optimist with all the medical knowledge to support the moments of hope and he is kind and professional when the humane choice needs to be made. He provided us such support in a time when we brought in an injured horse. \n\nThe entire staff is a great group of people. \n

    Pros

    Such a vast knowledge of animals

    Cons

    Can he clone himself?

  • 5. Dr Mike Fuller is the best

  • 6. These guys know horses

    by: Appaloosa

    We recently moved to Kittitas County. In the past we've had vets that specialized in show horses and wondered if we would find a competent vet in the Ellensburg area that could meet our needs. We were delighted to find Ellensburg Animal Hospital. Especially Dr. Witlatch understands the special needs of show horses in contract to those that don't get worked consistently. We urge and horse show people to use Ellensburg Animal Hospital.

    Pros

    For show horse people, I trust all of the vets at Ellensburg Animal

    Cons

    They are becoming so popular, you might have to wait a tad longer than you use to.

  • 7. We've never had a problem.

    by: allisonmymind

    We had amuch more pleasant experience at this vet than the other vet in town, who addmittedly 'didn't like cats.' I always thought that was kind of odd.\r\n\r\nOnce, my friend and I brought in five sick kittens that we'd found out on a farm. Not only did the vet treat the kittens, but he didn't charge us, AND he offered to take one home with him.\r\n\r\nThis is a good vet!

    Pros

    Friendly staff

    Cons

    Far away from downtown.

  • 8. Fantastic!

    I feel very confident taking my pet to this hospital. Every visit we have had has been very friendly and the doctors are all obviously dedicated to their job and customer service. Everything has been excellent! Highly recommended!

    Pros

    Great staff!

    Cons

    None.

  • 9. One Of The Best Vet Clinics Ever

    by: redneckgirl2009

    This is one of the best vets I have been to. I take all of my animals there and the staff is great. My dogs actually like going to this vet because they love to see the people. They always come out from behind the desk to give them a treat and pet them. They are compasionate and actually care about the animals that are there. The vets are highly experienced with many different type of animals. It is really clean and organized there. The vets have a passion for what they do and work very well. If you don't understand something they are more then willing to explain it to you and try to ensure that you animal gets the upmost care and love. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great Staff And Care Of Animals

    Cons

  • 11. Great clinic, great staff

    by: tamiww

    I've been taking my animals to this clinic for 5+ years and have always had a positive experience. The staff is very welcoming and caring and the vets are great. It is easy to get an appointment when you need one and you can choose your vet if you prefer. The clinic shares after hours emergency with another clinic so you can always reach someone.

    Pros

    Vets and staff are wonderful

    Cons

    none

  • 12. We love them!

    by: madgrace

    We love having E'burg Vet Hosp as our vets. We have 2 large, friendly dogs, so we're in the vet office several times a year. We've never had a problem getting an emergency appointment when needed. Our dogs trust all the vets, though they usually see Larry Whitlatch when he's available. The newly remodeled building is gorgeous, though our Golden doesn't like that the chairs are now so far from her favorite receptionist! We've been impressed that the vets don't hesitate to let us know when an ailment will take care of itself, or let us know of less expensive alternatives to care.

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, knowledgeable vets, nice new facility

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons

  • 13. Great clinic for birds and "small" animals

    by: funkiemunkee

    I have used this vet a couple of times. My regular vet is another vet in town for my cats and dogs. I have utilized this vet because there is a doctor who treats "small" animals, such as mice, ferrets, hamsters, etc. He was wonderful and took the time to help me treat a skin condition on three teeeeny baby Siberian hamsters. They were so small he had to put on this magnifying head glass/lamp thing! This vet was so caring and devoted. I have also used this vet when my ex-boyfriend's bird needed a checkup. He truly has a way with birds. Again, he was gentle, caring and attentive to the animal's needs. The bird really responded to him, and let me tell you, this was a really mean bird, lol. I was amazed and impressed by his "bedside manner." In the past, I have brought wild baby birds that have been knocked out their nests or abandoned when I worked at the Chimp Lab on the CWU campus. (Sometimes the chimps would dislodge bird nests that careless birds had built in the enclosure.) This clinic takes the wildlife and does their best to treat and rehabilitate them. To my knowledge this is another unique service that is not provided by anyone else locally. I am really grateful to have this clinic in town!

    Pros

    The only place in town to take "small" animals, birds, great for wildlife rehab

    Cons

    none really

  • 14. Great Vet

    by: trouty45

    by: redneckerin13

    by: rnrunner

    When we had to put our first yellow lab to sleep, the staff at the hospital was very caring and even sent a card a few days later to let us know they were thinking about us. It's never hard to get an appointment with them either. The facility is beautiful now with the remodel.

    by: clerfy

    None that I know of

  • 24. Ellensburgs best Vets

    by: Vep

    Ellensburg Animal Hospital has been my vet of choice for over 15 years, and I couldn't see me taking my pets any where else. It doesn't matter which doctor we see, they are all great. Four years ago when my best buddy Rufus was so sick they showed compassion for me, well as him. They are Ellensburg finest as far as I'm cocerned.

    Pros

    Great caring staff

    Cons

    none

  • 25. Excellence in Ellensburg

    by: jsbachgirl

    I was very impressed with the treatment my bird and I received at the Ellensburg Animal Hospital. Dr. Fuller really knows his birds! My little budgie, Dinky, was really sick and he did an excellent job with him. He is on the road to recovery. He was personable, down to earth, and nice enough to always return phone calls from a worried pet owner. I would highly reccommend this facility and it's staff to anyone.

    Pros

    Knowledgable staff, great facility, good results, treats exotic animals

    Cons

    location (further away than other hospital)

  • 30. Nice people, happy pets.

    by: katemcc

    Nice people work here, and everybody is knowledgable and empowered to help the client. That's made our visits efficient and easy. I've often found it easy to get appointments towards the end of my workday; this has also been great.\r\n\r\nSadly, it was the putting-down of a friend's cat that led us to become acquainted with Dr. Fuller, but his pet-side manner in that sad situation led us to bring our own pets to him for quality regular care.

    Pros

    Good people, good location, nice renovation.

    Cons

    Formerly a small waiting room - could be hard to keep my dog calm with so many other fun things to sniff!

  • 31. Great Vet

    friendly, good prices, knowledeagble

    Cons

    none

  • 32. Dr. Fuller is the Best!

    by: ehadaller

    Dr. Fuller and the support staff are the best! He really cares about the animals that he treats and their owners. They have kept costs around the same as other vets in the area. My only complaint is the one time I needed emergency care for a friends dog that had been hurt, Dr. Charlton did not want to come in and see us. The dog was taken to another vet in the morning and the treating vet said the dog did need stitches and should have had them the night before. I won't take any of my animals to him. Don't let this turn you off of the whole practice though, they are really great.

    Pros

    Dr. Fuller

    Cons

    Dr. Charlton

  • 33. Best There Is!

    by: Justinnikki

    All my animals now go to the Ellensburg Animal Hospital. The staff was very compassionate when I had to put down on of my puppies! Dr. Fuller is very knowledgeable and compassionate. We have met him after hours to care for injured wildlife. All my pets get the best care at Ellensburg Animal Hospital. They go out of their way to care for your beloved critter. My only complaint is not being able to have a vet from Ellensburg Animal Hospital after hours as you may end up with a vet from another clinic as they are combined after hours.

    Pros

    Knowledge & Caring Staff

    Cons

    After Hours Combine with Another Clinic.

    by: Thistle

    We have found the Vets at this Animal Hospital very competant, compassionate and accomodating. They have come out on more than one occassion to perform services from birthing cows to home euthanization. It is also a nice service that Dr. Fuller works on wildlife as well.

  • 41. Trusted Vets

    by: kmanderson

    When we moved to E'burg last year, I was most concerned about moving away from my pet's current vet. However, my vet in Maple Valley recommended the Ellensburg Animal Hospital so I was sure they'd be great. I was right. From day one, they have cared for my pets with expertise. I also found them to be very affordable for the service.

    Pros

    Convenient location, nice staff, expert care

    Cons

    None I can think of

  • 42. Ellensburg Animal Hospital

    by: djnova50

    I've taken all of my pets to Ellensburg Animal Hospital. Dr. Fuller is excellent with those pets which are considered exotics, such as my pet rats. He is an avian specialist and I am quite happy with the vet care my birds have been given over the years.\n\n

    Pros

    The hospital has recently remodeled and has more examination rooms than before.

    Cons

    Some people might think this hospital is expensive.
