I believe that Mark Salzburg is a good manI have been taking my 3 cats to Mark for years for minor ailments like fleas, allergies & ID chipsThis week... MondayMy tabby, OC, developed swelling on his left cheekMost likely from a fightThough my neighbor saw him investigating a black snakeTuesdayThe swelling had grown quicklyWednesdayOC was in pain and had labored breathingI called Salzberg Animal Clinic & made an appointment for 9:15am, ThursdayThursday (7-27-17 @ 9:15am)I took OC to Mark SalzburgMark said he could treat OC with antibioticsAlso that I should have OC neutered to prevent more fightingMark assured me that this would be routine andI would pick up OC by the end of the dayAbout noonI got a call from MarkHis team had done a feline aids testOC was positiveMark said my options were - Treating OC - Killing OC - or Giving OC to a home for cats with feline aidsI asked what treating him would cost meMark didn't know and said he would have his office staff call me, immediatelyTwenty minutes later, I called and a staffer said $320 to $355. I said, "for 350 bucks... help my friend"About an hour later, Mark called and stated that, "OC had died under anesthesia"Mark gave me several excuses why...1. Compromised immune system from Feline aids2. More advanced abcess that he thought3. Swelling effected OC's breathing more than he thoughtWhat happened was, We crossed over the limit of Mark's Education, Knowledge & ExperienceMy friend paid for that limit with his lifeIt is my faultI trusted Mark's recommendationI should have known not to put an animal with an advanced infection & labored breathing under anesthesiaI will live with that decision for the rest of my lifeI miss my friendPlease God... take care of my OC---This review is 100% true These are the Facts as they happened on Thursday (7-27-17)I will defend what I have said here it in court.Michael Grady(386) 256-6917

Leffler, Charles W
My family went to Dr. Leffler for a few years. Took my cat in for a procedure and he over anesthetized him to the point that when we brought him home he literally could not move for over 18 hours. A few weeks later my daughter took a stray kitten that she had found to him and when she walked in the door he yelled "I don't do cats". Don't know if he's just getting dementia or what. We have new vets now.

So Sorry Nora P. That a incompetent so called " Vet" Theresa Harty yet again KILLED your dog, just like she murdered mine with her negligence, and what seems by her methods, her actions and delusional words, to be a danger to have in any medical setting or around animals. This is far from the first negative reviews by OTHERS than myself about Theresa Hasty Harming, Misdiagnosing, and killing . Hope Nora P did file a formal complaint with Licensing board. As well as the others I have seen writing about what she did to their animals!!! And also name the receptionist who was the one involved in her dogs ashes being put under the desk . Believe me they are all involved in covering up the truth when it comes to the negligence there , the office manager Sue, Annie at front desk, Techs, All of them will cover their asses, and Theresa Hartys negligence, as Nora P found out with her dog, whom they rushed to cremation to hide evidence of Theresa Hartys negligence!!!!Disgusting!!

Called for a quote on teeth cleaning and the woman on the other ended rudely informed me "We don't take people that price shop!" WTH? First of all a client refered me, I'm not happy with my current vet and I pretty new to the area. I was treated so poorly. They never have to worry about me stepping foot in their business ever. Thanks for not wasting my time or money.

says no vet in office on Wednesdays on website - does not say that in this listing for YP. What if you didn't know and went there for care based on this listing?

Dr. Leffler's vet practice in Ormond Beach, FL has become dangerously incompetent. What was once a friendly, neighborhood vet has taken a downward spiral as of late; scheduling errors, misdiagnosed conditions, mix up of records, lying to cover up mistakes, and not believing that he should be accountable for what happens in his office. If you value the life of your pet get your records out now; check them thoroughly, and look for another vet. One of my dogs almost died because of his mismanagement!

Do NOT take your pet here! I took my dog because he wasn't eating or drinking and was very lethargic. They gave me antibiotics and pain pills. A few days later, he still could not eat or drink. They refused to see him saying I didn't give it enough time. I took him to another vet and my dog had a Tumor the size of your fist in his stomach!!! I just had to put my dog down :(

Dr. Leffler is the ABSOLUTE BEST vet you could bring your dog (or cat) to. He is a wonderful & caring man & his prices are very, very reasonable. As far as I am concerned, the best in Volusia County.

Angels At The End Pet Home Euthanasia
Dr. Volenec was amazing. It was a very difficult decision to put my dog of 13 years to sleep, but I'm glad we found Angels at the End. Dr. Volenec comes to your house to perform the euthanasia wherever your pet is most comfortable. This was perfect, my Achilles was able to stay comfortably resting on his favorite spot on our couch when he drifted off to sleep. My normal vet is amazing, but I didn't want Achilles to be stressed out and scared in his final moments. Dr. Volenec made the experience very peaceful. She is very friendly, compassionate, professional and knew exactly how to act in our time of need. She took care of all arrangements after he passed, she took Achilles with her to be cremated and had his ashes returned to us very quickly. She even made a clay pawprint with his name on it for us to keep as a memorial. Her prices were extremely reasonable and I wouldn't have wanted to do it any other way. I would recommend her to everyone.

Dr. Avis and the staff at Tomoka Pines are amazing. We switched vets about a year ago and have never been happier. They are all so great with our dogs every time we go there. The facility is always clean and well maintained. They are friendly and professional and always make it easy to schedule appointments and/or see us quickly in an emergency. I would recommend them to everyone.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
