    I would say for sure an "A" down the line.  I would use them again.  Honestly, there is nothing that could have been done better, they are top notch.  It's a speciality services, she sees an actual ophthalmologist.  They take great care of your pet,they are punctual..  It just runs very smoothly, they take their time and answer any questions you have.  They follow up and make sure your dog is okay.  The people are very nice and professional.

    The building inside and out is very clean. The staff, vets and vet techs are very friendly and knowledgeable. The wait times can run long though. The vets take the time to get to know your pets. Very capable.

    Dr. Werner is the most compassionate and supportive vet. She took excellent care of my doggy, Rusty, for 9 years and was wonderful when it was time to let him go and end his suffering from renal failure. I can't imagine taking my pet to any other vet!

    I actually just started taking my dog and my cat to Dr. Lisa Findlay at Countryside.  She and her staff are absolutely fabulous!!  My first visit was with my Beagle.  She is 2 years old and overweight.  After a complete exam and yearly shots, they discussed options of how to help Peanut lose the weight.  I decided to join their Biggest Loser competition for animals.  And through exercise and a rx diet, she is well on her way to lightening up!
    Next visit was for my cat of 10 years.  She is not doing so well and we have since found out that she has advanced lymphoma.  Lisa was fabulous in recognizing my concerns of making Mrs. Klaus comfortable for the rest of her days.  She was quick to get me lab results.  She is available to answer questions about progression.  I know if Mrs. Klaus doesn't pass on her own in a few weeks, I will probably have to have her put down and I am comfortable knowing that I will be surrounded by caring people during the process.

    It went great with Dr. Rex!!  There were a lot of things going on with my Golden and she remembered ALL my questions!  Even without looking at what the vet tech wrote on the notes.  She commented that she could even tell that I brushed my dogs teeth.  She gave me advice on trying grain free dog food on my allergic golden. 
    I live nowhere near Findleyville (55 min away), but I like the service and professionalism of Dr. Rex and the staff. 
    I know $320.00 sounds high for a bill; however, that was for BOTH dogs getting check ups (some vets won't even schedule them at same time)  , heart worm tests, distemper, and some flea/ hearworm meds.
    Thanks Dr. Rex!!

    I last used them February 13th and I spent about $104. My dog was stepped on by his mother when he was a puppy and his eye  looked like what we thought was a cataract and previous vets wanted to take the eye out. She took a look at the eye and took a picture of it an sent it to an optometrist who was a friend of hers. And it turns out that he has a disease called Pannus which is a disease in older dogs. She did the research, looked at it, took her time and it helped. She's very thorough and I've recommended her to people too.

    iVery well; Drs Visco and Mendlowitz and their staff are thorough, competent, conscientious, and compassionate. We never feel rushed and our concerns about our cats' health are always acknowledged and addressed. The cost I listed above included the exam/consultation, lab work, and meds.

    We were originally referred to PVSEC from my regular vet after my dog seemed to be having vision problems and circling.   We were originally referred to Ophthamology, and they referred us to Neurology.   Based on my dog's symptoms I was told that he either had a brain tumor or a stroke and that an MRI would be the only way to determine for sure.   I agreed to the MRI since I was told the treatments would be different and the MRI would help determine the correct course of treatment.   I was called later that day with the bad news that it was a brain tumor.   It was inoperable, and I was given the choice of radiation treatment or treating him with steroids to keep him comfortable.   Since the prognosis was that he would only have 1 to 3 months to live, and daily  radiation treatments would take 6 weeks and might only add a month to his life I opted to treat him with steroids and keep him comfortable.   He continued to do well and we did have monthly and then semi-monthly rechecks.   He was doing well and the neurologists couldn't explain why, but since he was well I certainly had no complaints.   In early December, over 8 months after the initial diagnosis, he became very painful in his back end and was rushed in as an emergency.   They were unsure what had happened and felt it was disc-related.   He was kept in the hospital over the weekend and transferred back to neuorology on Monday.   They recommended another MRI.   I reluctantly agreed as I wanted to determine the cause of this sudden pain - that they didn't feel was related to the tumor.    The second MRI showed that the 'mass' in his brain was almost gone now but he now had a blood clot in his abdominal aorta - they felt that this was probably caused by the high dose of steroids that he had been on for the tumor.   They now were second guessing their diagnosis of a tumor and felt it may have been a stroke initially and not a tumor.    We began weaning him from the steroids and added blood thinning medications to help with the clot and to prevent additional ones.  Several weeks later he began experiencing additional issues, including loss of appetite, facial paralysis, and significant edema to a back leg.   Neurology felt that the paralysis was due to his brain issue, which they now felt might be an auto-immune disorder rather than a stroke or tumor.  In addition, the blood clot seemed to be getting worse and causing the edema.   Neurology felt that his case had become quite complex and that treating the brain issue and the edema would be at odds with each other and very difficult to treat.  They did recommend euthanasia.  Since his quality of life was now rapidly decreasing and there didn't appear to be hope to resolve his health issues, I did agree.  They recommended taking him home and bringing him back the next day.   I did take him home and did contact another vet to come to my house the following day.   He did examine my dog and agreed with the neurologists that euthanasia was the best option at this point and he was able to do that at home, where my dog was most comfortable.  I do feel that the staff at PVSEC was professional, and In talking since with other vets it does seem that my dog's case was complex from the start.   I can't help but wonder if the outcome would have been different if the initial diagnosis had been correct, and initial treatment had been adjusted accordingly.  For some specialties, PVSEC is the only option in this area, and if necessary I would use them in the future.   I would have more questions before agreeing to some treatments in the future, as I don't believe that the MRI gave the definitive diagnosis initially that I was lead to believe that it would.

    My beloved dog had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in March 2013, and given 1 to 3 months to live.   We took every day as a gift and he did very well for about 9 months.   In December, he experienced a blood clot that his Neurologist felt was probably related to the treatment for the brain tumor.   We did our best to manage the blood clot and the brain issues but at a recheck on December 31st the Neurologist recommended that I Euthanize my dog.   As difficult as that was I felt it was the right thing, but the neurologist did have surgery and could not do the Euthanasia for several hours and recommended that I take my dog home and bring him back the following day.   I did agree to take him home, since he was not in pain at that time.   Once I got him home and saw how comfortable he was, I knew I couldn't take him back the following day.   I contacted 'Pet Loss at Home', as my sister had used them earlier in the year when her dog's time had come and they were a blessing.   Dr. Dave from 'Pet Loss at Home' had actually seen my dog as a patient at an emergency clinic several times in the past and he was also the Doctor that helped my sister's dog so I did mention that in my email to Pet Loss at Home.    I used Pet Loss's website on New Years Eve to send the email and within an hour or so Dr. Dave emailed me his contact information.   I called and discussed my dog's situation with him.   Dr. Dave said he could come out the next morning, which was New Year's Day, to see and evaluate him.   After seeing my dog and discussing everything that I knew about his condition, Dr. Dave completely agreed that Euthanasia was the best option for him at this time.   As difficult as the decision was, it was made a little easier knowing that he was at home and not afraid and would not have to go back to the vet hospital, which he really disliked.   In addition, our other dogs were present as well, so perhaps it would help them to understand what occurred.  Dr. Dave explained the entire process and gave us as much time as we needed to say goodbye.  We never felt rushed, and Dr. Dave was extremely professional and compassionate.    Unfortunately over the years, this is the fourth dog that I've had to go thru this process with, but the first of mine that was done at home.   I do think it was so much nicer for him, as he was not afraid or in pain and just went to sleep on his bed - with his entire family around him.   Dr. Dave did just bring my dog's ashes back the other day and we did talk a bit.   His concern for our family (both human and canine) was sincere, and he did tell me to be sure to contact him, with any questions or concerns that I have.
    This process is never an easy one, but when it is the right thing to do, it is comforting to know that there are such compassionate vets, as the doctors of 'Pet Loss at Home', who can assist.   It did give additional peace of mind to have another vet  (especially one I knew and had a lot of respect for) examine him, and it meant so much that he could stay at home.

    The vet and assistant arrived reasonably near time appointed. They were both very professional and kind. I got to hold my beautiful black cat in my arms and when it was over Dr. Battaglia hugged me. She was very comforting.
