"My dog has been limpling so i took him there. Place smelled bad but its a vet so i was ok with it. My dog is very friendly lab mix but they made him put a muzzle on him...then the" vet looked at him for less than 5 min and said he has medial
luxation and he needs surgery. And i can drop him off monday and he will keep him for 5 days and it will cost me between $800 - $1000. So i said let me think and left. Called the next day and asked if he would do a x-
just to confirm that is all what is going on prior to this invasive surgery..his response verbatim.."Thank you for the suggestion but i don't need to do that"..i said i think its a major surgery so i would feel more comfortable if we do some confirmatory test.."i am not here to make you feel comfortable"...SERIOUS. I was so shocked with the response i said forget it and hanged up. Called another vet and explained the issue and made an appointment. As part of that they called him to get his records...they told the vet they don't know who i am to the point the vet had to call me saying they where RUDE to them. I had to explain to the other vet that he didn't take any notes or nothing for him to provide it. So he told me i can drop off my dog any monday and he will have him for 5 days but he has NO records of me. I don't know what kinda of dogs you service but i will never bring my family member there. So far i have talked to 5 other vets in this area and
(pricing around) and EVERY SINGLE one of them say at least one x-
view would be good.

is a good solid vet practice. There is a high turnover in vets, and it can be very busy. However, their pet wellness plan makes it easy to budget for pet care." They also have really extensive evening and weekend hours, which is great for someone who also works. The vets at
also have been very open to discussing the costs and benefits to various treatments as my cat has gotten old and sickly. I probably could spend a small fortune on diagnostic tests, but he is a 17 year old house cat, and the tests won't really change anything about how to treat him. I've had experience with other vets who want to do everything you can do best because knowledge is better. In general, I have been happy with the care, but it is not a high touch, fancy practice. It is basically retail vet care.

"Great experience. I was able to get a Saturday appointment the same week I called. They called me the Monday after the appointment to give my my dog's lab results and to ensure" he didn't have a negative reaction to his vaccinations. The facility was clean and the staff was friendly. I will definitely use Atlas Vet again.

Veterinarian reviews in Washington


My cat Loki was tagged in the left eye by another feline member of my household. I took him to Union Vet, our regular clinic, but after three visits with no improvement, his vet strongly urged me to take Loki to a veterinary ophthalmologist and gave me a list. I had heard of South Paws and so called there first. I called on Tuesday morning and secured an appointment for the next morning. Every contact with South Paws from that first phone call was incredibly pleasant and professional. Their facility is beautiful. Dr.

, the veterinary ophthalmologist, was reassuring and just exuded competence. We rolled in at 8:45 AM and were back home by 2 PM. Loki made a full and uneventful recovery. His left eye may always have a little cosmetic defect (only visible if you know where it is) but he can see and he is pain-free.

After the consultation with Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
but before the procedure, I was presented with an estimated bill and expected to pay it in full. I had dome some research and so was not shocked to see an estimate of $1100. I know this is the kind of thing that causes people to wrote bad reviews but that really is not fair. South Paws is a specialty care facility so it will cost even more than a regular vet clinic. And I don't blame South Paws for expecting payment in advance. This not a charity, it is a business. As it happened, the cost was $300 less than expected and my credit card was immediately refunded. I have pet health insurance which paid the full amount of this procedure less the deductible. I received the check for $700 this week.

They are very caring towards my cat and they are always available to answer questions even over the telephone. I can take appointments whenever my cat is sick or in an emergency within a short notice. It’s clean, well organized and well run. They are little expensive.

My dog was getting close to her end of her life and she died. That had nothing to do with the

’s care. They were good, competent, professional and very timely which is really important. The only drawback is that they

’t have parking. Parking is a challenge. That was the only disadvantage. I was very happy with them. It is a nice, clean clinic. They have multiple vets on staff. I saw the medical director she examined my elderly dog. She reassured me and gave me a medication refill. So she took care of that. I will use this facility in the future.

I can't say enough good things about

Vet Clinic. The administrative / front desk staff is friendly and efficient. The vet techs clearly love animals. My vet, Dr.

also is very common sensical and always explains the ups and

of procedures / tests. Clearly, the clinic is not out to charge you as much as possible.I was surprised to see some of the online negative reviews about the clinic. A friend of mine has been using them for 25 years and couldn't say enough good things about the clinic, which got me to go.Price is probably a little high, but aren't they high everywhere in DC?

We have been taking our Golden Retriever to
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Veterinary Clinic since he was a puppy -- almost 5 years now. We have worked primarily with Dr.

and Dr. Mulbacher, and both are very professional an knowledgeable. They clearly care about their patients. The tech staff similarly are gentle and caring. For this particular appointment, I was seen within minutes of my scheduled appointment. I appreciate that they remember us, and they call to check in to make sure our dog is doing okay after a our dog's rabies vaccination.

This clinic specializes in neurological problems of dogs and cats. My regular vet in D.C. told me to take my cat there as an emergency when he suddenly started having a lot of trouble using his legs. They did X-rays and eventually an MRI, identified an inoperable spinal cord tumor so we had to let him go, but everyone was so compassionate and thoughtful, carefully explaining the prognosis and my options, with all explained costs up front, asking if I wanted to be with him as he was euthanized, etc. I really felt like they understood my grief.

They sent me a condolence card a few days later and then after a couple of weeks they sent me a small

of his fur and a plaster impression of his paws in a little box -- a thoughtful gesture although not something I would really have said I wanted had they asked. I have no idea whether their prices are competitive for this type of specialized service, but you probably shouldn't take your pet there if you're not prepared to spend a few thousand dollars. This is a caring place with all the most modern equipment.

I have used Union Vet on several occasions. I have 2 dogs, and I have been there for the annual check-up and vaccinations, as well as when one of my dogs was sick. The vets have always been very friendly, caring, and competent. I had planned on being a Union Vet client for a long time, until this week.

The problem that I had with Union Vet is that when one of my dogs got sick recently (severe diarrhea), I called Union Vet and they told me that they didn't have any openings for a week. Being that my dog was ill, they offered to let me have a 'work-in' appointment. That is where I sit in the waiting room until they can get my dog seen by a vet between other appointments. There was no estimate of how long this would take or what time I should come. Since my work schedule is flexible, I was willing to do that, but my real problem came when they told me that it was going to be $25 extra for that appointment. I'm sorry, but isn't the point of having a regular veterinarian that you can have your pet seen when he/she is sick? I never get out of the vet for less than $150, and they wanted to tack on another $25. Really?? I find this to be poor customer-service, and taking advantage of clients when they need your services the most. Does your insurance allow your doctor to charge you extra because you got strept throat and had to be seen that day? My dog was seen by another vet clinic that same day with no up-charge (a vet clinic that had never seen him before - to me, that was customer service). I have spoken with others who say their vet does not up-charge either, however, I am not in the veterinary industry, so I don't have full knowledge of what is customary.

I did email the clinic with my frustration. The hospital director did email me back, which was very nice. She said, " If you are seen as a work-in, that means we are fitting you in on top of an already full schedule. I do not think it is unreasonable to charge more than a scheduled appointment fee in that case." I disagree with her, though, as I feel the point of having a regular vet is so that your pet can be seen when he is sick. Again, to me, this is taking advantage of clients when they need vet services the most.

Based on my experiences with Union Vet up until this week, I would have recommended them. Being that they wouldn't see my dog unless I paid extra when he was sick this week, though, I can not recommend them anymore. I want a vet that will see my dog when he is ill without an up-charge. The fact that they have no open appointments for over a week is a sign to me that unless I just need annual care (where I can make an appt weeks in advance), this is not the place for my dogs. However, since they are so incredibly booked, it does show that there are a lot of clients that use their services. I'm just not one of them anymore.
