  • 1. I drive an hour, and will only take my rats here

    by: SSanchez308

    I love love love this place. I first went there as an emergency for my rat. It was an hour drive but well worth it. It is hard to find a good hospital that knows exotics well. This place is great and well worth the hour drive for me. The staff is very familar with all its patients, and is excellent in calling to check out how your animal is doing. They are also great with your specific needs. Because I drive an hour to get there, my rat often soaks his carrier with urine and stool from nerves. They will put me in a room right away, even before others, so I can take him out and clean his carrier. The vets know so much. They are very persistant in making sure you understand the medical terms they are discussing. They make sure the animal is comfortable and a couple have even gave them kisses. They also cut right to the chase. They will discuss all your options and tell you which ones are priorities, and which ones you don't really need. You can tell they aren't out to make money, but truely do care about the animals

    Pros

    Understanding to your needs, know their stuff, and are so good with the animals

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about this place

  • 2. Very good place ; very bad place

    by: angieluv

    This is a knowledgeable hospital that takes advantage of people . They are all taught the exact same protocol and don't think outside the box. They will do anything to make more money on a visit. including keeping a pet overnight that could have been cared for at home.\r\nThey insisted on keeping my elderly rabbit overnight and she died there in the early morning hours alone . I would have been able to do the treatment protocol in my home but they insisted .\r\nI have totally mixed feeling about that place.

    Pros

    knowledgeable about exotics

    Cons

    pricey and non flexible

    The vets at this clinic have extensive knowledge about exotics like parrots and rabbits. It is my 2nd choice for my parrots and rabbits. A little pricey and sometimes hard to get an appointment on short notice.

    Pros

    Great knowledge on parrots and rabbits

    Cons

    Pricey and booked
