(CAH) has been there for my pets through the last decade. They have gotten my dogs thorugh illnesses and when their time came, helped me to send them to heaven peacefully. CAH always fits you in if your dog is sick and there is an emergency. The vets there are kind and caring and I have never regretted taking my pups there. They also have helped me to get get some pretty complex referrals for knee surgery for my dogs and gave after durgical care that was top notch.
Thei grooming services are great and reasonably priced as well. I plan on using their new doggie daycare soon. Their prices are pretty comparable and seem in line with average costs. Although the staff does try to help you to avoid expensive treatments by preventative medicine.

I cannot stress enough how much pet owners should beware of using the services here for anything other than routine preventative care. I would not even recommend this location for that. They don't know the meaning of informed consent. The Vet gave my dog a shot of Convenia and never explained that it was an antibiotic with very deadly side effects. It stays in the system long after the shot. This was after my dog just had been treated at
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Veterinary Hospital with an antibiotic for the same thing. Convenia is very expensive $141 and I suspect it was an issue of profit or a relationship with a drug manufacturer. It can cause hemolytic anemia and my dog had a hematocrit of 15 when they gave to him. It almost killed him after he was improving significantly. He could not breathe and was gasping for air. The nurse came in and told me it was for pancreatis and it would shrink his pancreas. Later I found out Convenia was for skin conditions and many pets have experienced severe adverse effects - death being one of them. Now that I have his medical records I see my dog's Amalyse numbers have been high since he was 6 months old and he likely did not have pancreatitis and if he did the last round of antibiotics at CVS would have taken care of it.
I attempted to speak with the Dr who prescribed it but she refused to ever speak to me to explain her decision. They made several promises that she would but still nothing over a week later. I went there in person ad spoke with the practice manager,
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, who was all about the money and not giving a refund and although not being a doctor focused on telling me to just essentially
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
my dog (put him to sleep). She said she wouldn't give a refund because I consented to the drug. I then explained to her that I couldn't truly have consented if I was given false information. It was not informed consent. Then she had another doctor who did not even treat him that visit, tell me to put him to sleep 5 times. She said Convenia had to be given to him since he wouldn't eat. Yet they gave me two other prescription pills to give him by mouth and he just had a round of 5 different meds to take by mouth from CVS and he took them just fine. I had been hand feeding him. Then this non-treating Doctor said he wasn't breathing well because his hematocrit was so low but it was that low when he came in and the medical records listed his breathing as normal for that visit. She then said he had been dying for two years and it was time. (Funny no one told me that two years ago). It seems they would rather be right than save my dog's life. They told me to put him to sleep when he was 6 months old too and he is now 4.
Thankfully, he has gotten better treatment and is doing much better. He has been going up and down the stairs, wagging his tail like crazy when he sees me, following me everywhere, barking at the pizza delivery person, coming down to guard when the door bell rings and most importantly now he can breathe. I know he is still not 100% but he is happy. I am so thankful I didn't let them pressure me into doing what was not right for him yet. I recommend probiotics and natural homeopathic remedies for azotemia and CRF and an appetite stimulant for a short time.

is fabulous. When I adopted my first cat, I got to take her there for a free check-up, and I was hooked. Now I cannot imagine taking my little babies anywhere else.
They are slightly more expensive than other places around, but it is well worth the extra cost. They have several vets on staff and are available 24/7 for other needs/concerns. Every time I've needed to make an appointment, I can usually get in the next day.
One of my cats is particularly difficult when she has an appointment. Dr
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and her staff are always so patient and willing to think outside the box to get her whatever she needs. I am very happy with

and would highly recommend them to anyone with pets!

Dr.
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and her assistant arrived 15 minutes early! They came in first to talk, listen and learn about the history of my two babies. The major concern is that I have an aging cat with kidney disease who is absolutely terrified of the vet. Dr.
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
listened and heard me! She empathized and understood our situation and respected my thoughts and wishes for a his care plan. When he was diagnosed with kidney disease in February, the traditional vet kept pushing for more tests, more treatment and more visits despite after his last visit he stopped eating and had horrible diarrhea for 5 days and no medication was helping. I went against the vets recommendation and stopped medicating him. That was in February. The day after stopping medication he bounced back quickly when he realized he wasn't going to be tormented twice a day by forcing medication that wasn't even working.

doesn't have an agenda, and isn't just going through a checklist of things to do. She considers the circumstances, the personalities and most importantly the quality of life - even if that means making the difficult decision to not treat his illness. It's not an easy decision, but it's easier knowing she understands and respects it and is willing to help me provide the most minimal care to keep his quality of life while he ages and health declines.
In regards to cost: 2 'comprehensive' exams and rabies shots by the traditional vet cost $160, then the rest of the bill was $300 for a slew of tests. The
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
bill was for an in home visit was $121 and she didn't pressure me to do anything unnecessary or just because it's on an exam checklist created by the practice. What's more important to me though was that the stress to my babies and me was minimal.
I've had to call Dr.
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
again to address another issue and I know she will only recommend what is absolutely necessary and what best fits with our quality of life plan.

No appointments taken, but I walked in near the end of the vets' lunch break (1:30) and there was almost no line; we were seen very quickly.
Dr.
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Park was =wonderful=. Prompt, friendly, super professional--filled me with confidence that we'd get through this.
She suggested a barium swallow and an X-
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, and check back a few hours later. The clinic apparently is very well-supplied, because all this was done on-site and with a lot of efficiency. When I returned at five, Dr
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was able to show me the dozen X-rays they had taken every 30 minutes, which she felt showed that my guy still had some earplugs in him.
Even though it was near closing time, she suggested that they make him vomit to see what came up... she gave him an emetic and up came another ear plug and two of those little felt disks you put under table legs! Who knew!
Then some anti-nausea medicine for the little guy and we were done. She suggested we come back tomorrow for some more looking to see if he still has those last two earplugs, or any socks, screwdrivers or car doors inside of him.
All this for $331!! The exam, the X-rays, the barium, the emetic, the two visits with me... just an incredible value!
I have NOTHING bad to say about the vet we've used in the past---they're great too, but they were all booked up today and I felt I needed to find somewhere else to get my guy in faster... so thanks Agie's LIst for pointing me to

Vet Clinic!

Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
in particular! I and Tookus thank you!!

The test was not completed because I couldn't get a urine sample. I asked for that part of the test be credited back to me. They refused and told me to find another vet, that I was demanding and rude to the office manager. I didn't get what I paid for and I told them that.
They always demand payment up front before they will do anything.
They said they could stick a needle thru his fur and maybe hit his bladder to get a sample. My cat is 16 years old, too old to risk infection or worse.
They seem to be more interested in making money than careing for my pet.
I will select a different vet asap, I have 3 cats who I dearly love.

I see Dr.
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
because she is familiar with French bulldogs since she has them herself. The people at
Morgan City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
have been taking care of my dog since she was a puppy, she is seven yrs old now and in excellent health. I like the way the staff handles any claims for my dog insurance which insure I get rapid action s on my claims. They are a very friendly and professional service.
