I don't usually don't write reviews but I felt that this was important for people to hear. I encountered a situation where I and my dog of 15 wonderful years came to a road block that involved his quality of life and my ability to tolerate his declining health in spite of my efforts to keep him as comfortable as I could. I worked with Dr. Wright and Dr. Cable regularly trying to come to grips with the reality of my beloved guy's situation. Ultimately, in the best interest of my sweet Drew, I decided to have a humane euthanasia performed as I knew we were fighting a losing battle. I have never felt so understood and empathized with as I did working with Dr. Cable. She spent far more time and energy with me than I know she had and listened to my probably senseless rambling and tears. She treated me like a client with a loved pet, but more importantly she heard my words like a friend. I not only commend her and her staff on their compassion, professionalism, and their genuine love for animals (and their owners) but I wanted to extend a heartfelt and public thank you. The loss of my baby was devastating to me but Dr. Cable held my hand through the process and for her I have the utmost respect and gratitude. You and your staff are the genuine angels in the world and I hope to someday come back with a new furry friend. Thank you all so very much!

I hated this place. No one introduced themselves as to who they were when talking to me and giving me info so I always had to ask. I thought the woman with tattoos on her chest and wrists was the vet tech but it was the veterinarian herself. I didn't know what was wrong with my dog and it turns out they didn't either yet they brought up the word "cancer" and tried to play on my fears and guilt me into spending lots of money on testing. They are unethical and I don't know why this facility isn't investigated. People in other fields are monitored all the time by administrative agencies (attorneys, physicians, bankers), why aren't they? I ended up paying $400 with no answers. Went to a regular vet and was told my dog just had dry skin. I'm seriously considering filing a complaint. They totally take advantage of people's emotions. When I said something about the amount to a vet tech she put her finger up not her lips in a "shhh" motion and said: "don't say anything too loud about the amount or they'll suddenly find hidden charges". They get a star for being open and a star for being on my side of town. Otherwise, worthless.

CARE Center
Based on my experience, the care here is excellent. And, yes, it will be expensive. That being said, I have to agree with the comment below that mentioned the cllinic's OBSESSION about being paid for services. Can't remember the exact details with one of my beloved dogs. I must have forgotten my check book and not had my credit card with me. The woman behind the counter (technician or DVM -- couldn't tell) wouldn't give me my animal to take home. I had to race around in my car to find an ATM (several miles away) and withdraw cash. Then return and fork over the money to the vaguely rude woman. The veterianarian I then saw when my dog was released apologized and said she hoped I didn't think they were holding my Labrador for ransom! This was about twelve years ago. I brought another beloved dog to the CARE center for treatment about five years ago. The medical care was excellent. However, all this time later, I do recall that one of the young women at the front desk was an incredibly cold and unsmiling bit h. I should have complained about her. I guess that's what I'm doing now.

I had to go there the other night for the second loss of my second cat, my Family, in less than a year. They were just as comforting, as kind, as accomodating, as caring as they were the first time with my girl. Dr Jeff Smith, Katie and Erika were helpful, supportive, quiet and so comforting. Even brought my boy a drink of water we asked for and they had a blanket for him to be cuddled in although we used our own. They were so kind and so sweet, and they gave me as much time as I needed with my boy before I had to let go. I highly recommend MedVet, and they have always done a good job... I suppose because I don't want to download this app for this site, I can't leave an official review - but consider this a 5-star review for MedVet on RedBank Rd of Cincinnati.

I have been a MedVet client since at least 2002, traveling to the Columbus office for care not available in Cincinnati. I was very happy when MedVet opened its Cincinnati location and was able to return my cancer dog to her original oncologist in 2011. MedVet has been nothing but professional to me and my pets. I expect a high standard of care for a specialty and emergency practice, and that is what I get. I also get a partnership with the veterinarians who have examined and treated my pets. They consult with each other on their cases, so we get an even better medical perspective and value. I am versed in veterinary care so know what we are getting the real deal. Highly recommended.

Park Plaza Animal Hospital
I have been taking my pets to Park Plaza Animal Hospital for over five years. The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly, both on the phone when I have scheduling and billing questions, as well as in person when we bring our pets in for checkups or treatment. The doctors have always treated my pets very well and made me feel comfortable going over any treatment options when necessary, making sure I understand what is needed and how I want to proceed before taking any action. I have never had a bad experience at Park Plaza, and would recommend them to anyone who values having a friendly local business who cares about your pets as much as you do.

Ucan Spay Neuter Clinic
Best spay/neuter vets in town! They have so much experience due to the volume of cats and dogs that they see, there are no other vets in town that can do a better job than UCAN! I take all of our neighborhood cat strays there, and have had several dogs spayed/neutered as well. The incision is almost invisible and the recovery period was very short. They even offered free microchipping the last time I took my dog there. Discount pricing does not mean discount service. The staff was wonderful, and very patient with the last little diva that I took there. You can't go wrong with UCAN. I so appreciate them!

I've had both good and bad experiences with MedVet. Unfortunately it seemed to depend on which vet was taking care of my pet. While two of the vets were very caring, competent and honest one of the vets wasn't honest with me and I spent a lot of money on a pet that never got well. He performed numerous tests which I wouldn't have had done had I known my pet's prognosis. Be sure to ask questions about the big picture - don't put your pet through unnecessary stress and pain if you don't know the chances of survival.

I find the comments below disturbing. We took our little rescue dog to them because his left rear knee cap became dislodged and wouldn't return to its original position. Very painful for him. We were seen rather quickly and had the surgery done the next day. We were give the cost of the procedure up front and any recurrent visits. We expected it to be expensive since we did not have any pet health insurance. Please don't give these folks a hard time. It is a business you know.

Dog Day, Every Day!
I have been taking my dog to Dog Day Every Day in Beechmont for several months now. I wish I was able to give them 10 stars. They treat her like a family member. I know that she is treated well because she drags me to their front door when we arrive. Every member of their staff is friendly, attentive and makes you feel welcome. I love the fact that she is never in a crate. She has become a very social dog. She is worn out when she get home.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
