"When my golden retriever had a seizure, we were seen immediately. After another cluster seizure, the doctor and staff were ready with an IV of valium to stop the" seizures. Dr.
then referred us to a veterinary neurologist and made the arrangements so that veterinarian was expecting us. I have gone to many veterinarians over the years, and this clinic is one of the best. It's a great comfort to know that we will be seen in an emergency or urgent situation even without an appointment.

"We had an excellent experience, from making the appointment to check out. The team at Viscaya-
is top-notch! We brought our newly rescued"
Parrot,
to Dr.
this morning and he was extremely pleasant and professional. He handled
with great care and we will surely use him for any future needs. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for great veterinary care.

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.

We took the pug out there and they already had some handicap dogs. Our dog was dragging because his back legs wouldn't work. Somebody said try

wheels. We made an appointment and drove out there. They had a sample wheelchair that didn't really fit him. It came close to fitting. We put him in that wheelchair and that dog took off like, "Free at last!" He was zipping around everywhere. They measured him, fitted him up and we came out there a couple of weeks later and put him in. Now he runs around like a drunken

They have all the specialists. In order to see the specialists there you have to take out a second mortgage, but they're great. We spent $2000 on one of our pugs to find out we had to spend $35,000 for his congenital problem. We just put him on a diet and steroids and he improved. we've had other pets in and out of the there.
Our pug is in a wheelchair because of the congenital defect.
They do phenomenal work, they do great work.

We’re there all the time. We rescue dogs, he does a superb job, he’s a great vet, he always calls the next day after the treatment and says how they doing. We recommend him when we go out and do home visits, if they’re looking for a vet, we highly recommend him. We’ve going to him for 35 years. He spends the time, take the time, and explain what’s going on. I give him an A+, if there are some things he can’t do, he will tell you that, he’ll say if you need to see some specialist, and I’ll give him a list of specialists, he’ll just say this guy is good but he deals with the animal better that he deals with the people. He’s got a 4 or 5 other vets working for him, somebody’s always got an emergency, but I can see if he runs late, I can see why he runs late, because he takes the time to explain what is going on, what’s wrong, I can see that, and all of this and that had been superb, I’ve never had a bad one.

Saved our dog's life! Our 4 year old dog was stung by a bee. Within 20 minutes, he was limp, unconscious, and in shock. Anaphylactic shock! We rushed him to the
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Veterinary Hospital. The receptionist scooped him up into her arms, and ran down the hall to the OR/Procedure room. Their elite team, with Dr. Suji
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and her veterinarian technicians, went to work. They administered IV fluids, IV Decadron, IV Benadryl, and oxygen. They continued to update us and report on his progress. In addition to their expertise, their concern and empathy were very evident. After two hours we saw him awake and alert, and by the evening we were able to take him home on oral Benadryl. They saved his life! We are enormously grateful for their superb care!

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and colleagues. I believe there are around 5 vets that work there, and I have been pleased with each visit. I do not feel the need to see one
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
over the other, as I feel both my dogs are getting excellent care. I found them on Yelp, due to excellent reviews and called them when I was at my wits end trying to get Daisy treated for heartworms. They have made the process as easy as it can be, remember me and Daisy by name, and go above and beyond for us. For example, I was given a discount by Dr
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
when he heard I rescued Daisy when she was getting ready to be put down by ACS due to her heartworm positive status. The discount was around $150, which was a huge help to us. They also never mind when I have called for updates on Daisy when she has stayed the night, or for several days due to her treatment. I feel that their prices are quite low when compared to other vets. For example, I have been to Comal Animal Clinic a couple times, and never left paying under a $120 for anything. Also, when I was afraid my puppy had kennel cough, they accomodated seeing me the same day (really within an hour or two) and allowed me to wait in the care with him while waiting to be called in (not to infect other dogs). I highly recommend this

Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is thorough, careful, thoughtful, kind, and very discerning. She is good at seeing what is happening with an animal and taking
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
phased steps that place the animal in as little risk as possible, while offering real chances of improvement. Unlike other vets we have visited, she does not automatically want every test and prescribe every possible medication for an animal. She responds much like my favorite doctor, by taking intelligent smaller steps so as not to over medicate an animal or suggest surgical interventions if something less drastic may help instead. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is all about whatever is best for the animal with minimal risk for the long term. I deeply respect the way she works, which is guided by her expert knowledge, the animal's best interests, and the concerns and wishes of the pet owner. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is a good diagnostician. She is very empathic with animals and their owners. She is excellent at the very hard task of seeing what is actually wrong and knowing the full range of what can be done for an animal. She will undertake heroic rescues of very ill animals. She will also counsel what is the best improvement that might be gained when an animal is very ill, which is sometimes hard to hear. She neither pushes owners to do more than they wish, nor encourages them to have animals destroyed. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
instead gives the pet's owners the information they need to make informed decisions. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
herself has adopted a variety of animals that had a need for very expensive treatment that their owners chose not to give. After Dr
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
unpaid care, these healed animals now act as friendly greeters at the door of her facility, making a visit there a treat. We have deep respect for Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
commitment to animals. The kind, friendly, thoughtful, and generous
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
staff are also easy to work with. All staff there are adept with animals and friendly with visitors. Appointments can be made soon. When you arrive at the facility, your appointment happens on time or even early if you are there early. Medicines can be formulated in house rather than having to go to a pharmacy. Prescription cat food can be ordered via Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. She also has a pet portal, that allows your pet's medical information to be kept online for your reference. Additionally the fully modern animal hospital boasts x-
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
equipment, microscopic analytical equipment, and other modern amenities that mean that much of what you would have to go to a specialist for in other vet practices, may be done in her facility while you wait. This is very convenient. This animal hospital has very reasonable fees compared to most other vets. Lab work costs about the same as elsewhere, but is requested much less frequently. We are delighted to have the opportunity to use the services of the
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for our five cats. We are thankful that they are in the area.

My dog is no longer incontinent. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and Parkway Vet Clinic have taken care of all our many dogs and cats for more than 25 years. Dr.
Colchester Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is expert, professional, compassionate, and seems to really like his work. He has so much experience that he just always seems to know what to do. He also keeps up on the latest treatments. He refers out for specialty care as needed. I like that he explains everything very clearly, answers questions, does not hurry through the visit, and always makes a plan for followup. And he has a great sense of humor and is a really nice guy.

We have lived in Delaware since May 2014. We have several animals so finding a vet was important to us. We gave this place a shot and have been happy with them thus far. Everyone is super nice including the front office girls and the welcoming committee of cats. We have been pleased with the services we have received and will continue to use them for our pets.
