Dr.

takes a horrible situation and makes it bearable. This is the second pet companion Pet's
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
has helped me with and I will use them in the future. The stress of traveling to the vet's office (for that last heart-breaking trip) is alleviated - everything can be done where its comfortable for you and your pet. She explains everything that is going on - making a paw print (if you desire), giving a shoulder to cry on and a packet of info on the grieving process and any additional support programs you may need. The first time they helped me with

I had made an appt. with a different veterinarian, but forgot the name, and figured it was
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Pet Hopsital. Well, it wasn't, but it was a fortunate mistake. The staff was willing to schedule us if I didn't mind waiting a bit. It wasn't a long wait. It's obvious from stepping in the door that everyone working there loves animals. The waiting room is spotlessly clean. So was the room in which we saw the doctor. I wish I could remember his name. He was excellent with our dog,
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, and you could tell that he likes his job and animals. His examination was thoughtful and thorough. He talked to me a lot about dog's overall health, exercise, and feeding.
When I picked up
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
the day after her spaying, I was told everything she did while there--what she ate, when she slept, did she cry and so forth. I was also given explicit information about her aftercare, and all sorts of papers that I could refer to. She
healed very quickly with no complications. Now, you could tell that
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
really didn't want to be there anymore, but she was calm and she was happy to see us. This was a sign to me that she had been treated well.
The third appt. for her vaccine went like clockwork.

I have been with Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for 20-plus years. I have never known a vet who was as caring and compassionate as she is. I have had five cats over the years, and she has been the primary vet for three of them, two of whom are still living and in good health (one lived to 18 years). When I have had to euthanize a pet, she allows me to stay in the room with my baby, and she does her best to make the end a kind and easy one. Always able to get an appointment in a timely manner. Their office is very convenient in Forest where I live with friendly and helpful front and back staff. It is a modern facility, clean and up to date. She helps me understand the different disease processes, aging, and routine care that may be needed such as dental. My husband and I both feel very comfortable talking to her and asking questions, and she spends as much time with you and you and your pet need.

We have used Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for the last 15 years, and he is the best, most caring vet I have ever used. We now live in Florida, but I drove 312 miles to have Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
treat my 5 year-old golden retriever after the vet I have been using in Florida did not help my dog and was flippant when I suggested that he had misdiagnosed what he deemed to be a stomach or intestinal issue. After a thorough exam Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
diagnosed a lesion on the brain stem; he then consulted with the other vet on the premises and called a neurological veterinary specialist for his opinion. After reviewing current literature and consulting with the other vets, Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
confimed his initial diagnosis with 95% certainty. Although the condition is terminal, he gave him a steroid shot and started him on oral steroid medication. He later contacted another specialist who provided additional advice which he passed on to me. Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
doesn't pull
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and he tells it like it is, but his extraordinary bedside manner and love of animals has made a bad situation much more bearable. I was ready to have my retriever euthanized, but Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
disagreed and suggested that we give him every
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
to get some more quality life before he ultimately has to be euthanized. I'm glad I listened; five days later, a dog who could not even lift his head is retrieving again and seems more like his old self. Now we will be able to enjoy the pleasure of his company for a longer period.

Dr.

Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Suchowiecki provided excellent veterinary medical care for our cat, who was healthy through most of his long life. When, as an elderly cat, he was diagnosed with the illness from which he eventually passed away, Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
provided him the finest and most attentive care, sensitive to the balance between taking appropriate measures to prolong and maintain good quality of life, and helping us with the difficult decisions facing the family of any seriously ill companion animal. Our kitty Fo had a great life, and thanks to Dr.
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, the best death possible. When it was clear that it was time, and knowing that a car trip would be stressful for him, she volunteered to come to our home at the end of her long workday, and very, very kindly and expertly helped him (and me) through what was certainly a sad but also a very sweet passing. The staff at
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was unusually caring as well; one of the trained staff,
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, provided home visits (including administration of medications and subcutaneous fluids) when we were away from home during the year-plus our cat was ill. She was really wonderful; it was a gift to know our cat was in good hands when we couldn't be there. If you are fortunate to have a feline in the family, you can't do better by her or him for veterinarian healthcare than

they took care of what I asked for, did not try to sell me all sorts of unnecessary services (o make me feel guilty for not taking them!).They were on time, however I suggest an early appointment, as the waiting room can get a bit crowded.

I see the other reviews were dated 2012 and were A's. I can assure you It's a whole new ballgame now with these people.

We submitted an order on their portal for our Daisy's meds (almost 10 days ago) - if you do this expect 2 weeks or more to get your meds ) and needed some pills for her since we didn't anticipate them taking 4 days to approve the prescription request (which was already in place) and then another 7 business days to ship. BTW, you can't track the order because it is being shipped through the USPS and it says the number isn't found)...oh well - blind faith I guess.

I called and spoke to
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. I requested the pills and told her that we'd be down there in approximately an hour (they are about 20 minutes away) to pick up a week's worth of meds for Daisy in case we didnt get her online order (likely the case at this point).

We showed up 50 minutes or so later and they had a sign on the door that said "Closed from 12-2PM".

Please see the media tab for an image of this sparkling note. We called and their voice mail said closed for staff training please leave a message.

I had just spoken to
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
but it didn't sink in and they failed to tell us they would be closed for the next 2 HOURS. We happened to see the child of someone who worked there entering and they got Mom to let us in to pick up the meds, albeit at the HIGHER price. They just rang us up and walked out of the room.

The last time we were in they told us they would match the online price (of their portal) however today, they charged us 39.00 for 14 pills.Our Daisy takes 2 pills a day so that is almost 3 bucks a pill? Online price is about 1.50 a pill - these are expensive but twice the price come on?

Please be aware this is not the first issue we have had with this new Dr. Armani's office. We got an estimate for surgery to remove a small cyst and a lesion under her eye that was 800 bucks +. We got another estimate from another vet and it was 560.

Honestly, Their prices were not such and issue until their service finally went down the tubes. We noted the waiting room smelled really bad when we went in today but everybody has a bad day. They just seem to have one every day anymore.

They are fired.

I lost a Chihuahua puppy from intestinal blockage a year before this puppy started showing signs of a problem. Puppy was examined which helped calm my concern. The main problem I had was that I was given a 32
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. bottle of a laxative, which cost $30.00..My puppy only weighed 2lbs., The dr. said they did not have a smaller bottle. This was not the first time I went to this Dr. Every time I went there his bedside manner was unfriendly and I felt like he only saw me as a

The team from Caravan is outstanding in service, caring, responsiveness, skill and knowledge. I have never gotten this type of careful and thorough
Dixon Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
services in my 50 years of pet ownership. I have 2 elderly cats who present many challenges. They have been extremely helpful in both health and behavioral issues. The slightly extra cost to have them come to the house has been well worth it. They spend the time and see the cats in their habitat which decreases the anxiety of the animals.
