    I am so happy I found Kindness Animal Hospital. I'm pretty picky about my pets and I want the best for them so I did my research. I found out they are up to date with the latest equipment, such as an ultrasound, which Dr. Z is very good at performing (other hospitals actually send patients to Kindness sometimes to get an ultrasound), and a laser that is the same as human athletes use, and the veterinarians and staff there are concerned about pain management and comfort of my dog. Every time I go in for my dog's yearly exam they ask me about the vaccines and do not do unnecessary vaccines. I feel like they do cost a little bit more but they are worth it because they do such a great job and I am 100% sure my pets are getting the very best care and I am comfortable with them.

    I was in there Tuesday which prompted my review. I can't say enough good things about this animal hospital. I moved here about a year ago from Frederick, MD and was looking for a closer vet for my 2 cats and 2 dogs. With this many pets, we have a pretty close relationship with the vet!! So our vet in Frederick recommended Kindness and I'm glad they did. I have seen the owner, Dr. Zolkewicz and Dr. Moore and Dr. Hoffield and I like them all. Dr. Z (as he is known as) is able to strike that balance of being fun and also professional at the same time. I always know he cares about my pets and wants the best for them. He performs ultrasound, is concerned about pain, and they have a laser there that has helped my arthritic lab immensely!! No drugs and his pain is less and he is more mobile. When I call there, I get a call back within the same day. I find the prices at Kindness to be extremely reasonable- I'm getting a lot for my dollar!! My pets seem to like the staff there and I have absolutely no complaints about the place.

  • Overdosed my Cat

    Marc Katz, veterinarian at Kindness Animal Hospital, was disciplined by the Maryland State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners for violating the state practice act by leaving an unlicensed, unsupervised person alone who administered an insulin injection to my cat. He used the wrong syringe, causing a massive insulin overdose, nearly killing my cat and causing permanent brain damage. The disciplinary action is a legal public record document issued by an agency of the Maryland State government. I can provide this document upon request and it is available on the web.

    I believe that these people are INEXCUSABLY careless with their patients lives. Don't let your pet be their next victim.
