  • 1. Never again!

    by: Jotel

    They only care about the $$$. Twice I rushed my peke for emergency care and they constantly told me prices and asked about payment. My dog had been a patient for 8 years, (I always made immediate payment for services), yet they are more concerned with money than the animal's health. We ended up taking him to Gainesville twice to get decent care. This after they had given him a nose job and face lift, erroneously diagnosed liver cancer (at two years old) and couldn't offer a solution for a spinal tumor. They seem to think every animal has a price on his head.

    Dr. Brown is great. And the vet staff is experienced in all sorts of animals. This is the only vet in town that knows how to treat reptiles.

  • 4. Good animal care

    by: britetyger

    This was the place I took my bird when he needed care and they were always friendly and helpful. I don't go there anymore because he passed away (not their fault) after I took him there to get help and it is too painful to go back.

    Pros

    great with exotics

  • 5. Wild Animal

    by: Ximena410

    I have taken wildlife that I have found injured here. They do an amazing job for no pay. I moved to Tallahassee in 03' and where I used to live they would charge you to drop of animals even if they were wild because of this I feel that many animals that could have been helped were probably not. What this vet does is great!

    Pros

    Very knowledgable staff

    Cons

    Dark parking lot

    by: hummingbirdsm

    I want to thank this hospital for their care for wild animals. They make it available to drop off animals you find on the street, in the woods, etc. The animals are picked up by St. Francis Wildlife who I can't tell you does an outstanding and care job for the wild animals.

    Pros

    The Wild

  • 7. Not so good!

    by: lcworsham

    I used to take my cat here, but I have since switched. This vet has a great adoption program and seem to be very caring, but I have had some horrible experiences with them trying to perform unnecessary and very expensive tests. If you go here, please get a second opinion before doing anything drastic. I also have been here in a couple of emergency scenarios and was treated horribly by the vet techs. I felt like they did not care why I was there- they just kept pushing vaccinations when my cat was dying from a heart attack and needed other treatment beside her annual vaccinations. I understand this was an extreme situation, but I would not recommend this vet to anyone unless you are adopting an animal from them. Sorry!

    Pros

    Knowledgeable vets

    Cons

    Horrible vet techs

  • 8. Experienced vets

    by: KristineLeeFL

    Northwood has taken care of our basenjis, including those I have briefly fostered for Basenji Rescue and Transport. They also assist us at the Apalachee Coursing Club by having their van and a vet tech at our trials to help with any injuries.

    Pros

    Multiple vets, emergency services

    Cons

    Sometimes a long wait due to emergencies

  • 9. Awsome hospital

    Pros

    very professional and knowledgable(also open on weekends)

    Cons

    none
