  • 1. Very pleased

    by: Kelli372

    I got both of my pets at the WPA Humane Society, and have used their clinic twice, and a private vet once. I must say, the clinic far exceeds the vet practice hands down. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the doctor took the time to explain what was wrong and gave options on the different ways we could help my cat. The prices are great, especially if you're a member. Overall, a very good, and relatively stress-free visit.

    Pros

    Friendly staff; low cost

  • 2. i adore them!

    by: ajc1979

    i adopted my first kitty from the humane society, and have been a member of their clinic since (3+yrs). every single staff memeber has been incredibly kind, insightful and wonderful! i have a kitty with FLUTD, and compared with the emergency clinic staff who diagnosed him, the WPA humane society doctors are far more stellar. you can tell they truly are passionate about their work, and invest time in EACH AND EVERY pet seen! will continue to use them as my primary vet. amazing work!

    knowledgeable, lovely

  • 6. Great clinic & staff

    by: dolcelavita27

    I had a lady just drop off her cat on my front door one day, poor cat was so scared. I called everywhere and then finally spoke to a wonderful receptionist at this clinic. She was very informative about what I should do with the cat. I love the fact that they are a no kill shelter that opens the doors to all animals no matter what. It is extremely clean in this clinic and would advise anyone to adopt a animal from them. The pets are all checked, spayed/neutered & have shots they need before adoption.

    Pros

    Knowledgable staff clean

    Cons

  • 7. great animal clinic

    by: blakepeterson

    I have been very pleased with the services at this animal clinic. I was a bit disappointed though when I found a lump on my dog and they could not see her for over a month. Thus I had to take her to another facility. I really do though like the vets at this clinic.

    Pros

    i loved the vets at this facility

    Cons

    sometimes it takes a while to get an appointment

    Cons

    long time to get an appointment

  • 10. Good clinic

    by: hdevine

    The WPHS Clinic is a wonderful clinic. You can't beat the prices and the vet techs are awesome! It is always very clean.\r\n\r\nThe only problem is vet. coverage and it's not a full service clinic. Perfect for vaccines and check ups though.

    Pros

    great prices, easy access, nice staff

    Cons

    hard to get an appointment with a vet

  • 11. Personal Experience with Animal Clinic was the best ever

    by: whbos

    I adopted a kitten from WPHS shelter on a Friday (2006), but had to have shots and would be available for pickup on Monday. The staff was alert to the fact that before Monday arrived the cat was showing signs of an URI. When they told me of the seriousness of it, I asked if they could hold the kitten until it was less contagious because I had five other grown cats at home and didn't want them to catch it. \n\nIn 2004, I had experienced my three cats catching a URI from a kitten adopted from a West Virginia shelter. When the other cats became seriously ill, it cost more than $1,000 in vet bills so I didn't want to go through that again. My senior cat almost died.\n\nTo my surprise, and without additional charges (which I would have paid, but they didn't charge me), they allowed the kitten to stay in the shelter for over a week.\n\nI thought this was very thoughtful and more than what I could have expected. Several years ago I had to put three of my cats in a kennel for over a week and it cost me over $500 not including food.

    Pros

    Better than my veteranarian of 3+ years

    Cons

    None

  • 12. Low cost care & medicines for the public

    by: RichStoops

    This is a great service to the public, and you can't beat their prices on medicines such as Heartgard.\r\nJust because of where it is located and what it's purpose is, no advanced care or diagnostic services are offered. I have been there a few times to purchase meds or for appointments, and most of the staff is absolutely great. Unfortunately, the one or two that always seem to be in a foul mood can be downright rude and nasty at the drop of a hat and give a negative impression of the entire clinic to the public, which does such a disservice to everyone else.

    Pros

    Offers basic low cost health care, vaccinations and medications to the public, some terrific staff

    Cons

    Limitations on the care they can provide, some really snappy staff
