  • 1. great place for all pets

    by: ssheppick

    My dog hates going to the vet period. When we take him to see the staff at the monongahela animal hospital they make it easier on us and him by being friendly, patient, and caring. They let my husband or myself go with him to the exam room to help calm him and handle him gently. We took him to another vet once for an emergency situation and were very displeased how roughly they handled him and literally dragged him into an exam room while we waited for two hours.

    Pros

    very friendly and caring, very little waiting

    Cons

    small

  • 2. A great place to take your pet

    by: joanie5

    I love taking my dog here. The vets are all great. My dog is never really afraid being there. They are so gentle with the animals. The office staff is equally as nice. It's just a great place to take you pet. And, its very clean.

    Pros

    Great doctors and staff

    Cons

    None I can think of

  • 3. Very good vets

    by: tracy30n05

    I took my dog and one of my cats here to get fixed and they did a great job. My dog also goes back to get his nails cut every other month. He is deathly afraid of getting his nails cut but they are always able to calm him down and get it done.

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable

    Cons

    A little pricy on some things

  • 5. Great staff and superb care!

    by: hazyhearts

    My animals have been going here for several years now. The staff is very kind and helpful, even over the phone (which I've used in emergency situations). They were even kind enough to make a donation in my dog's name when he passed away (from natural causes). I would highly recommend the Animal Hospital to anyone looking for a vet!

    Pros

    Kind staff, very knowledgeable, very patient and caring to animals

    Cons

    Can sometimes be difficult to get an appointment

  • 6. best friend to animals

    by: Skinny

    I would recommend the veterinarian to any one. My old vet wanted to put Seven to sleep because she hated Chows.He is prone to ear infections and was in a lot of pain when they decided to terminate his life. She said that they are all vicious and will eventually turn on their owners. Thank God I didn't listen to her and chose to see another vet. They said he is a very gentle and loving dog.

    Pros

    excellent service

    Cons

    none

  • 7. Best Vet in the Valley

    by: newpotato

    Although I had an issue with this vet last year, it was only one incident in 7 years of dealing with them. I have a diabetic cat who requires insulin shots and we ran out of insulin before they could refill our supply. During the first year and a half we were always able to call and pick up the medication the same day, but that time they didn't have it in stock and claimed that it was always necessary for me to call a few days in advance. I ended up having to take him to another vet and get a full checkup in order to get the insulin we needed, but Nick was due for his annual anyway. Now I just make sure I call ahead for his refills. But aside from that, these gals have been great. From helping me with my maine coon when he developed cardiomyopathy and eventually passed, to diagnosing Nick with diabetes and helping us learn how to care for it, to all the regular checkups for Nick and his sister Kato, they have been really knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

    Pros

    helpful staff, good hours, good location

    Cons

    one misunderstanding over an insulin refill

  • 18. Fantastic Animal Hospital

    by: bridgie1

    I have taken my dog there for years. All of my family uses Monongahela Animal Hosp as well. Dr. Lusk is fantastic. She is very caring and gives excellent service. When my moms dog passed (she had taken Jazzie there since she was a pup) she not only sent a card to her but made a donation in Jazmines name to a local shelter. My mom was so impressed that she took the time to do that. My mom was very upset at the loss of her Jazmine and that really made her feel better. I cant say enough about the faciltiy and Dr. Lusk.

    Pros

    Great Animal Hospital

    Cons

    Hours

  • 20. Recovery from surgery

    by: MariaRosa

    Monongahela Animal Hospital removed a tumor from our dog's leg. It was a very emotional time for my husband and I...we have no children and our Chinese Sharpei is like a child to us. Hats off to Amy at the Animal Hospital for being supportive and caring during such a difficult time.\r\n\r\nSimon has recovered. He is healthy, energetic, and full of life. \r\n\r\nThanks again!!!

    Pros

    Animal lovers

    Cons

    Not open 24 hours a day.

  • 21. Great Animal Hospital

    by: wvugranny

    When we still had a dog, this was where we took him (Scooter). Now I go with my daughter on occasion when she has to take one of her 2 dogs there. I have never been disappointed with any of the services that were given.\r\n I would not hesitate to recommend this hospital to anyone for any kind of small animal. We used to even take our Guinea Pigs there.

    Pros

    Excellent staff and facility.

    Cons

    none

  • 22. Service

    by: jacktrouble

    Lisa has built a wonderful vet practice. The vets. that work with her are just as competent. Lisa staffs great techs as well. It is a friendly welcoming environment. I would recommend this practice for anyone who cares about their pet as much as I do (they are like my kids).

    Pros

    Have vets staffed that spend time explaining services to owners.

    Cons

    Often have to wait.

  • 23. Utmost trust in Monongahela Animal Hospital

    by: CodyGirl2004

    I have been going to the Monongahela Animal Hospital for years, years before Lisa Lusk took over the business from Dr. McClain (may be wrong on the spelling). Lisa and her staff have always been very caring and provide wonderful service. When I had to have my dog Cody put down a few years ago they were so compassionate and made such a difficult decision a little easier. They even sent flowers to my home the very day I had her put down. I would recommend Monongahela Animal Hosptial to anyone looking for high quality care and staff that truly cares about pets and their owners. I recommend them to anyone that has pets, even if you need to travel a little further it is well worth the top notch care that is received.

    Pros

    Staff is very compassionate and knowledgeable

    Cons

    May be a little out of the way for some
