We waited over 1 hr. Care was good but very expensive. We would have other services done but it was much cheaper and still good quality at another provider. I have used
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for a while. They are good but have become quite expensive.

I'm catching up on my reviews, and realized I didn't leave any comments on our visit to
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Vet Clinic.
This was our 1st visit to
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. We wanted a new vet for our Chow / Shepard,
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. We had a less than good experience with our previous vet.
Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and her assistant (sorry, don't remember her name) treated
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
as if he was their pet. They took their time to give him a complete exam. While making sure
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was comfortable with the strangers poking around on him. Dr
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
also took the time to go over all of
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
's previous vet records.
A most pleasant experience for all.

Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
insisted that he could not diagnose my cat without a senior panel. I agreed to it and Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
called me on the following Sunday with the panels results which were normal for someone her age. They provided no answers. I thought it was odd that he would call me on Sunday. I later figured out my cat's problem on my own. Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
had no answers except stated that she probably had flea allergies. Because of her extreme sensitivity to flea meds, I used a mild brand. I told him the problem she had with her sensitivity to flea meds but Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
wanted me to use the strongest flea medication, Revolution. I tried to tell him about her sensitivities to flea meds but he told me to stop talking and listen. If he had listened to me, he could have diagnosed her problem and she would not have continued to suffer needlessly. He was not very nice on the phone. My cat threw up from some flea meds and got bobble head due to her neurological reaction to pesticides. My cat scratched incessantly whether she had fleas or not. Her back had a rolling motion and she would let out loud sounds periodically. There were other signs of her neurological condition. If Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
had observed her and listened to me, he could have figured this out.
Later, instead of biting me, she started biting herself and had raw flesh exposed. See photo. I had no confidence in trying to call this vet after this experience in May. My cat was treated for fleas, had no fleas but continued to bite herself and lick herself.
It had already been established that my cat had food allergies by my prior vet and my experience with my cat and trial and error. I was using special food. Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
gave no credence to the food allergies. I later decided to try special litter as well due to her extreme allergies. My cat had neurological symptoms. A cat bite was a serious issue. She was 16+ years old and not well.
I lost faith in this vet after this visit. I finally found the problem on the internet. She had classic feline hyperesthesia and it got much worse in the coming months. I called another vet and they agreed to euthanasia. I became very happy with the respect and compassion that I received elsewhere. I would not recommend this doctor.

It went unbelievably well. I saw Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Farling and she was one of the most compassionate vets I had ever seen. I had gone to two other vets in the last year and got nowhere with the problem. I spent a lot of money and no one understood the disease and just charged large fees for tests and told me to do more things and spend more money. I was buying the most expensive food and the most expensive litter but to no avail. After doing a lot of research on the internet, I figured out what my cat had. Neither of the previous two vets understood her problems. My cat had obvious symptoms of feline hyperesthesia.
And then I called
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, explained my problem and told them that my cat was biting her fur off, she had bitten me and sent me to the ER and that she had a large area of raw flesh exposed. This was not her normal nature. She could not stop her licking the area due to her neurological condition. She was in pain, etc. and needed relief and compassion. I was told that they could put her down. I was relieved to be able to stop the unending pain and anxiety that my cat was enduring.
Dr. Farling said that this stage of their life is very important and that it was important to treat them with dignity. She did exactly that. I was there for the end of life and was treated with the utmost respect. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Farling for her help with dealing with this disease. I had almost given up on vets until I found

Due to my being handicapped, the vet carried my cat's remains to my car after the procedure. The parking lot was completely handicapped accessible. I would recommend this vet to everyone. They helped me when no one else would. I was able to bury my cat and allow her to rest in peace.

In mid-

I rescued a

with a severe ear infection. The staff a

had me bring him in immediately to treat him. They had had to sedate him to flush his ear on three different occasions. The last time I had him in to be checked I also had them clean his teeth and groom him. Thanks to all the staff and vets for getting

in so promptly and addressing all his issues. He is slowing but surely regaining his health. Very pleased and would highly recommend

Dr.
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is a gift to our dogs and family. She treated our older dog for years until he passed away. She is now treating our puppy and another dog. She is wonderful and the ease of having her come here vs. the stress of bringing our dogs to an office is so wonderful. When our puppy was sick she knew exactly what to do. I love her and recommend her to everyone!

My niece has two Pomeranians. She loves them more than anything in the world and lives in fear of anything that might harm them.
Over the years, many vets have exploited my niece's vulnerability to extract fees for unnecessary tests and scans and have recommended risky surgeries which were unlikely to be successful. Not
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. Their vets are fastidious about not ordering unnecessary tests, prescribing unnecessary drugs and performing risky surgery with doubtful outcomes. Their offices are beautiful and designed to put both pets and their owners at ease. They have the latest equipment including devices not typically found in many vet offices that make treatment more comfortable for patients, e.g. lifts for large dogs in pain. Their vets all have gone to top vet schools. Their fees are reasonable. Since they don't over prescribe tests, drugs and procedures you will probably save a lot of money over the long run compared to your average vet around
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
if you stick with them.
One of my niece's Pomeranians had bad teeth, which is not unusual for Pomeranians, and needed several teeth extracted. The procedure involved the use of a general anesthetic. The imagined risks of general anesthesia terrified my niece. Dr
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
spent many hours on the phone with my niece patiently explaining the procedure and reassuring my niece of the safety of modern anesthetics. Two or three times my niece postponed the procedure after it have been scheduled. Dr
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
without hesitation and without the slightest note of annoyance obliged her. In the end, Dr
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
successfully performed the procedure which went without a hitch and my niece's little Pomeranian has never been happier. All of this was done for $350.00!
The vets at
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
love animals and love people. It shows in all of their their work. The vets and staff are from top schools, highly trained and well equipped with modern equipment. There prices are comparable to what I have paid elsewhere and you are not pressured into unnecessary test, scans and procedures. I wish that I could find a human doctors as compassionate, gracious, principled and skillful as the vets at

My cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism by our regular vet and didn't respond well at all to Tapazole so we decided to go ahead and do the I-131 treatment which involves injecting a small amount of radioactive iodine transdermally to
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
the diseased thyroid tissue. The staff explained the process very thoroughly to us and I really liked
Springfield Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
who was the caretaker for the cats in quarantine after treatment. She sent us daily updates on our cat and even took a video of her stealing the entire bag of catnip which was really funny. My cat seemed really relaxed when I picked her up and not traumatized so all in all, a good experience.

I checked in. A medical assistant got some of the information for my dog. The veterinarian came in next to perform his wellness check. He went over behavioral issues and how to train my dog. Recommended a deep cleaning due to poor eating habits. After he was done I went out and paid for the visit, got a quote for cleaning, and they vaccinated my dog. The process was

and the facility was clean.
