"We received the most insensitive care possible. It was SO traumatic for us. My husband & I were sobbing. The Dr. never introduced himself or said ONE caring" compassionate word. He did not speak unless we asked a question. The experience was HORRIBLE. She was our baby & I'm heart broken-hearted her life was ended by such an uncaring Dr. I will never return there & I will voice my opinion of this facility when mentioned or asked. I called the next day sobbing to inform them of our experience. I never heard from anyone apologizing that our visit there was so HORRIBLE. I followed up with a letter to the owner but I have no hopes in hearing from him either. Seems to me this facility is clearing only interested in making money. Our
was not a patient of thier's. We took her there because she took a turn for the worse and
is close to our home. I picked her ashes up (not even sure the ashes are her's) & paid the almost $400.00 bill. I will NEVER step foot in that place again.

Pet Insurance

Is pet insurance worth the cost? How much are annual premiums? What does the policy cover? Read this Angie's List Guide to Pet Insurance to learn more.

How do I choose the right veterinarian for my pet?

One highly rated provider shares insight and questions to ask yourself when going through the process of choosing a veterinarian for your family pet.

Many vets suggest trying to train cats to claw only designated scratching posts before choosing to declaw.

Vaccinating your dogs — and reporting cases of kennel cough to your doggy daycare or animal boarding facility — is the best way to protect your pets and their friends. (Photo by Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Patricia T.)

Boarding your dog while you head out on vacation? Don't forget to pack Bordetella vaccine protection for your pet before dropping him off at the animal kennel.

Vets have reported five deaths and more than 1,000 cases of canine influenza, as dog flu spreads in Chicago.

Like snowflakes, each pet is unique. In veterinary dermatology, this is often taken into consideration when approaching diagnosis and treatment, says Fruta. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Virginia M. of Redmond, Ore.)

When cases of skin and ear problems become severe or chronic in your pet, it is suggested that you seek the care of a veterinary dermatologist for treatment.

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.

I have been using Dr.
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for years. He is hands down the best vet I've ever had. He is dedicated, caring, honest and a heck of a nice guy. I completely trust him. His #1 concern is the care and quality of life of your pet. His #2 concern is you and your pocket book. If he tells me that something is needed, I have no doubt or hesitation that it is in my pet's, and my, best interest. That means so very much when you are faced with a pet health concern or crisis... Also, see the reviews for the Cincinnati Central Animal Hospital, which was his previous location/practice. It is at that location that I first found him through Angie's List and he resolved my cat's health issues, researching and consulting with Ohio State to find a mix of medications that would work, after multiple vets before him had given up and said there was nothing they could do.

didn't seem that concerns, didn't clean bloody hair from wound. 3 times After dog bite check I took bloody foul smelling runny gelled stools in and they said not concerned. On a Friday morning a few days later we called for appointment as dog not eating or drinking. Was told to wait till Monday. I called emergency vet and took dog and was given about 3 medicines, they called next day to see how she was and told me to be sure and get to vet Monday. I took her to west

Vet and about 4 weeks of antibiotics, stomach coater so she could eat and 4 IV water packs later for dehydration, the dog is doing good. I wouldn't recommend this clinic to anyone who needs to rely on someone to take dog in an emergency. At West

we waited 1 hour at one visit as an emergency came in and we were asked if we would wait till this dog was dealt with! That's the vet for me! One who saves lives, not just when convenient . Another excellent and fair priced vet is Ark Animal Clinic in

I have been taking my dog to Valley Vet for a few years now. Everyone who works in this office is compassionate and kind. They clearly care very much about the animals. My dog was very sick and had heart failure, and it was time to say goodbye. Dr.
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and his staff could not have been better in this terrible situation. They made sure we had as much time as we wanted with our dog and treated him and us with the utmost respect and kindness. I will continue to take my younger dog, and any dog I own in the future, to this wonderful office.

Dr
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was referred by my coworker when we were looking for someone new to address some serious struggles our dog was facing. It is so unfortunate that we found him during our dogs end of life--I wish we had found him sooner-he is a wonderful veterinarian! He was extremely sensitive, patient, knowledgeable and concerned during each visit regarding our dogs struggles. Our dog had been progressing with the inability to use his back legs. To address this, we visited our regular vet and 2 others throughout the progression for 2nd an 3rd opinions. We felt that the vets were not very helpful and none really had much to offer and did not seem very sensitive to the progression.
On our own, we purchased a cart to help him walk but he did not take to the cart. He continued to progress and my co-worker suggested Dr
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. He was the first vet to suggest an appointment with a Physical Therapist that works exclusively with dogs to see if she could help him transition to the cart. The PT was also wonderful and offered excellent supports; however, at that point, we feel he had progressed beyond the cart---if only one of the other vets had suggested this sooner. Our dog could no longer walk which brought many other associated challenges. Dr
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
could not have been more knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of our dog and our concerns--he even called to follow through after each appointment. We had to make a very difficult decision which is still hard to share; however, our best and most loyal friend could not have had a
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
vet to be with during his last moments. I would highly recommend Dr
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. We do not plan to get another animal because it is so hard at the end but if we did, we would most definitely use Dr
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. He is an A+.

My dog was bitten in the eye by another dog and had eyelid repair surgery done at an animal hospital an hour away. I wanted a quick check on the wound to make sure it wasn't infected and
Meriden Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
fit me in right away. They were careful, thorough, and so very compassionate with her and me. I have been bringing my dog there since we got her 4 years ago because I was unhappy with the other two animal clinics I've used near my home. AAC has been excellent at every visit. There is never a wait, the staff is all very nice, and the vets and technicians knowledgeable and very empathetic. I think the highest praise is that my dog gets so excited to go to the vet, as if she's going off for a day at the spa!

It was an awful experience, and I would never go back to them. The veterinarian told me that my dog was going to die and that there was nothing that could be done to save it. Thus, I went to a dog hospital that did save my dog's life.

They almost killed my dog. They prescribed two medications, that apparently you aren't to mix. He almost died. I took him to the emergency animal hospital and that's when they told me that we cannot use those two medications together. When I called them and told them what the emergency vet said, they said that they didn't know that and that should inform the vet of this. I have not been back since and wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
