"I've been taking them there for a couple of years. One of the things that I like about an animal hospital is they're a 24-hour service. I had to take " for some reason and that's how I found out about them. Ozzy needed surgery on his ACL. I just decided to move them over there because of their professionalism. I buy a year package for $400 that covers all of their vaccinations and teeth cleaning and they get their toenails trimmed whenever they go in. I paid the 400 upfront and just take them in when they need everything that's covered under their package. I've never heard of it so I went there. I love . They're great. It's not as cheap as some places in the valley but it's not as expensive as other places. They're in the middle. When I find somebody who I like then I pretty much have them forever.

"We needed to take our newly adopted dog to an emergency vet because she had kennel cough and had quit eating and drinking. AVC is open on Sunday so we called and" made an appointment. We were told if we felt it was critical to come in and they would fit her in as soon as they could. When we arrived the receptionist and vet tech were very nice and knowledgeable. Our meeting with the actual vet was very brief. They prescribed a weeks worth of antibiotics and cough suppressant. They also did a "dromedary" procedure to make sure the dog did not dehydrate. For the next week we gave the dog the prescribed medicines but she did not fully recover. We were still within the time frame of taking her back to the humane society for treatment so we did. The vet there explained that the dog should have been on no less than 2 weeks of antibiotics and never give a cough suppressant because, just like humans, that mucus needs to come out. We were given another weeks worth of antibiotics and the dog recovered just fine. It was very disappointing to spend so much money and have our poor dog not get better. I would only go back to this place if I needed emergency care and even then I would do it with reservations.

Angie's Answers



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.

Veterinarian reviews in Salt Lake City


The receptionist were very kind and so enthusiastic to meet our dog. The vet was very nice and knowledgeable she explained the procedures and all our options. They were also kind enough to give us a sample of teeth cleaning dog treats. We got to do a walk through tour of the whole facility and the dog was allowed to wander freely to help her feel more ...More comfortable in that environment. I felt like my questions would be answered honestly and that my dog would get the best care.I will be taking my cat in and will recommend them to anyone and everyone. What a wonderful experience.
- Bryan Beens M.

Dr 's help that day is the kind of thing that has kept me coming back with all our dogs and cats for nearly a decade.
He is the best diagnostician I have ever seen (that includes human doctors, too), and can often tell me what the pet's problem is just by a quick examination. He doesn't suggest costly tests, ...More or even xrays and blood work, just routinely--unlike a lot of vets do, either to pump up your bill or because they don't really know how to examine an animal. This means that when Dr does recommend a test it usually just confirms something he already has mentioned to me. He is clearly not in this business for the money or just to pay for some fun new equipment (unlike a hospital vet once, who wanted to charge me $1500 for a dog MRI because "that's a $10 million machine!").
The fact that Dr is a skilled practitioner of all sorts of alternative medicine was an unexpected bonus for us and makes him even more valuable. If you express interest, he can use everything from acupuncture to homeopathic remedies to the latest herbal treatments, including one that we used on our previous dog when he had bone cancer. This gave us nearly two additional years with our beloved boy and we never had to resort to amputation and other treatments that would have sharply reduced the quality of his remaining life. It also saved us tens of thousands of dollars.
When we finally decided to put that dog to sleep, I was amazed at the level of quiet emotional guidance and support that Dr brought to that difficult day. He assured us that we were making the right choice, walked us through all the steps, got the job done unobtrusively, and then let us stay with the dog's body as long as we needed to afterward--which was a long time.
Dr cares deeply about his patients and about the people who have to pay the bills, though he doesn't do this in a showy or self-conscious way. There are often clients in his office who are very elderly or have disabilities, and he takes all the time they need to express their concerns and answer all their questions. There is a homeless man in the area, and Dr has been treating his dog for free for several years. He urges everyone to call him with questions or just to tell him how their pets are doing with their treatments. All this careful and personal treatment means that sometimes the wait to see him can be a little long, but that's a small tradeoff for the quality. I just bring something to read in case we have to wait.
I live in fear of the day when Dr decides to retire. You won't find a better vet anywhere, at any price.
- Allison R.

We have been using SLVS for almost 10 years, and love their services. Dr is kind, knowledgeable, understanding, gentle and realistic--helpful when animals are ill and decisions need to be made. Some of our animals have had surgery done, and Dr and staff did a fine job and our pets bounced back well. ...More All the costs were explained up front so there were no financial surprises. He and his staff have been with us through the euthanasia of one pet, and the sudden death of another. They took care of the arrangements, helped us with cremation, and all the hard stuff.
This last visit, we went to their location for shots and wellness exams, but usually use the mobile services. It's fabulous to have all our animals (cats and dogs) seen at the same time, on their home turf. Much better than having to load up cats in a carrier and dogs in the car and take them somewhere! Plus they give a multi-pet discount. We are so glad they are here in !
- Elizabeth H.

The vets, techs and front desk staff at this clinic are absolutely excellent! We have used them for annual exams/shots for our dogs and are always impressed with their service. They have multiple seating areas in the lobby which makes it easy to keep my doggies away from cats or other animals that they may not like. My Boxer recently needed oral surgery ...More to correct an overgrowth of . The vets were fantastic and really seemed to care about my dog's health and the outcome of the surgery. They gave me an cost estimate that included the usual price of the surgery and any additional costs that might be incurred if they encountered any other issues. It was nice to have an estimate that included a best and worse case scenerio rather than being surprised with a high bill after the surgery. Luckily, everything went well and we only had to pay the "low" estimate. Overall, University Vet Clinic has far exceeded my expectations and I will continue to entrust my furry babies to their care.
- stephani L.

I highly recommend Dr. and his staff! We have worked with Dr. for over 8 years. He is kind, courteous, efficient, and respectful. He has helped us make some tough decisions with our pets over the years, including euthanizing one of our pets several years ago. Recently, after a year long illness that ...More Dr. helped us manage, one of our dogs died of a heart attack at home in the evening. We called the office and left a message about her death, and his staff came to the house early the next morning to pick up her body and arrange cremation. They were extremely helpful and caring during a difficult time.
Especially because we have several pets, the in-home service is convenient and so much less stressful on our pets. Also, when he see several pets on one visit, there is a multiple pet discount. His staff are professional, kind and caring with our pets. We have also taken our pets to the office location occasionally, and the office is pleasant, centrally located, with plenty of parking.
For the latest visit, he and his staff came on time (if they are running late from emergencies, they will call and keep us updated) with necessary equipment and medications in their van, and provided efficient and caring services for our pets at home.
Overall, we feel like Dr. and his staff are part of our extended family, and their services have made our lives and our pets' lives healthier and much less stressful.
- Elizabeth H.

I arrived 30 minutes early for the appointment (since I wanted to make
sure I could find the office). After filling out paperwork, I was asked
to take my 2 little dogs for a walk in their yard and not wait in the
waiting room (that had one dog and 2 owners in it). It was over 90
degrees outside at noon. After walking around ...More for ten minutes I decided
I didn't want a veterinarian that made me wait outside. I went in the
office to pick up my paperwork to leave. I told the front desk person
(very nice) that I had never been forced to wait outside for ten minutes
prior to an appointment. The veterinarian overheard me, looked at the schedule
book, then snarled (without making eye contact), "It was 30 minutes, but I'm not going to argue with
you." They then told me to go into the exam room since it was time for
my dog's appointment. Instead, I left and never went back. A friend of
mine recommended and loves this doctor. My friend is
very confrontation-averse. So, if you're that type, this
veterinarian apparently treats you nicely. If you complain, watch out!
- Greg P.

He was very understanding of what I was going through with my sick dog. Will come and pick up my dogs if they need treatment. Very professional and nice.
- Barbara J.

They were able to treat the wounds and give the cat an antibiotic and make sure everything was okay and not infected. They did a great job. I actually have three cats and I have been going to them for the past three years. What stands out about them is their care and interest in the animals' wellbeing.
