"I just needed a regular checkup for my cat and wanted to establish a relationship with a vet since we're new to town. I waited about 15mins in the bright, clean," spacious lobby, appreciating that they had separate waiting areas for cats & dogs & birds. They reviewed his previous medical records in detail and discussed the vaccine schedule with me. They also set up a reminder in their system so I'll be mailed when his next shots are due. We also discussed his hairball problem and some possible solutions for managing it. The cat was hissing, spitting, and growling the whole time and they handled it well. Overall, it was about what I'd expect from a vet visit and I felt it was a fair price for a checkup.

"That being said, my last visit was when my 15 year old blind, deaf dog passed away. They were incredibly kind and did not charge me for the office visit (since he" had passed away at home, but we rushed him there not being sure he was gone)...

Hi

The first answer is pretty thorough but I would like to add a few points. 

First.. the type of food you are feeding your dog may be the key.  If you are using a food that is grain, rice or corn based in the first three ingredients, please change to a food that is meat or chicken based.  Many dogs are allergic to grain, rice, wheat and corn and these things are used as primary ingredients in many well known, name brand dog foods.  Secondly, all treats that have these ingredients should be cut out.  It takes weeks to months before a food change can show results so you must be patient.  Jumping from one food to another will be counter-productive. 

Some dogs are so allergic to flea or other insect bites that one or two bites can cause a severe reaction.  Once the itching/scratching cycle begins, it is hard to stop it.  Benadryl is good but I suggest liquid form.  You can get it inexpensively at one of the dollar stores.  The pills take time to break down in the digestive system so you get better and faster results with the liquid.One tsp= 5cc and most dogs of average size can tolerate that much and more if the dog is a larger breed.  

Allergy testing is very expensive and most dogs will test positive to some things.  That does not mean that the itching is coming from those things as many things in the environment can trigger positive test results.  Breaking the cycle of itching is primary and that can be done with prednisone ( short term and last resort after benadryl and bathing), allergy shots( same deal, last resort after easier methods).   This spring and summer have been particularly hard, weather-wise.

Good luck!

After you search for the company, you should get the "no results" page. Scroll down just a little bit, and you'll see a button and a link that say "Add this provider." Click on that to add them to the List! Thanks for the great question.

I'm really sorry! It looks like we made some site changes I hadn't noticed before and it made things just a little more confusing (for me, too!). We'll have to look into this to make it easier.
In the meantime, here's what you do:
1) Look for the Submit a Report button. It's yellow and on the right-hand side of the page.
2) Search for the animal cancer care clinic you're looking for. The search box should be inside a yellow bar.
3) You should see a list of potential matches, but on top of those, there should be "add a provider to the List" text in blue, which is where you'll click to get to the add page.

Let me know if you have any trouble. Sorry, again, for this being so confusing.

Everything went well. We were given explicit instructions for what to expect and how to prepare our kittens for the procedure, what would happen, and when to pick them up.

Over the last 25 years we've taken our last five cats to the vets in this practice-- for regular care to their clinic in Beacon Hill, the ...More Street Animal Clinic, and for surgery or other major care to their facilities in the South End, the Clinic The vets and their technicians have all been wonderful, caring, professional people. They have a lot of patients, yet when we visit we never feel rushed. They seem genuinely to love animals and their work. And they have a great website as well. We have complete confidence in their services.

Only issue we have had with is that sometimes they make you wait a really long time, especially when you are boarding or picking up the cat. They are a large facility, so it is understandable, but one wishes it didn't have to take so long. Other than that, very satisfied.

Very easy to get an appointment, good communication, both pets well cared for but not an over the top approach to animal health (eg didn't try to get us to use peripheral services that would have made them money, etc!).

They are so good with him. He only had to stay one day, then he could come home. He is doing well. They really take great care of your pet. I find that the staff is very warm and helpful. The doctors are very thorough. I have been told that their prices are reasonable and right in the range with every one else. I feel very comfortable having my cat treated here.

does a very thorough job of veterinary care. I was very pleased with the way they handled my dog and explained about his allergies. They have a nice building and it is clean. I think their prices are better than another veterinary clinic that I took him for a similar problem because they did so much more to test him.

is very efficient. This is a top-notch veterinary clinic. I know that their office call is about $48. This is a large clinic and it is very clean. Everyone who works here that I've dealt with has been very friendly and helpful. They seem very knowledgeable.

is located near my home and is convenient for me to use. They offer very good quality veterinary care. I do think their prices are on the high side. I took my dog to another clinic that I felt had a more reasonable price. The facility is clean and the employees are very nice.

At this vet, they're really good with the dogs and friendly. They are not inexpensive, though. That is one thing we have come to discover about them. They are always open though because it's like a twenty four hour operation, which is nice. They have an emergency person too and they dog sit as well. They are an all-around good place to use ...More I would say. They could just stand to lower their prices. I mean, we have found one other vet that charges more than them, but I think they're like the second to highest charging place in this area.
