Baring Boulevard Veterinary Hospital
GREEDY!!!!! I have lived in expensive cities, San Fran and Seattle,never had a bill so big and they want me to come back for more. I will find a vet that cares about my dog first and money second. I say shame on them. I realize that every business has to make money, but to rob people who have a sick pet is so wrong.

Sage Veterinary Care
I wanted to go to a vet closer to our house so took my pup to sage veterinary in sparks to get a check up and yearly shots. To my surprise I was slapped with over an $1800 teeth estimate and felt like the worst pet owner ever when I left. I went to my original Vet afterwords because of how horrible I felt & just to get another opinion and see what was going on & had a $1200 less estimate for my dogs teeth. I don't know if it was because it was a new Vet or not but it is ridiculous to make people pay for your overhead at your new facility. I will never go back to this establishment no matter how close it is to my house. My dog just got his teeth done completely for $600 compared to the $1800 I was quoted at Sage, that's obviously a $1200 difference & the biggest rip off ���� ����������������������������������������

We brought our dog in here as a walk in as she had been vomiting in large amounts. They were quick to get us seen, were EXTREMELY friendly, and also extremely thorough in explaining what they were doing and what things meant (i.e. what we were seeing on the x-Ray as well as what else we could be seeing). We will definitely be switching to this vet as our primary. We loved the doctor and staff here!

Payed $700 for them to stitch up my dog after a dog fight. Two days later the wound opened up and they wanted to charge another $400 to fix the wound because they didnt stitch it properly in the first place. I explained I didn't have any more money and they sent me home to care for it myself. Any other vet would have apologize and offer to fix the problem with minimal charges if any.

I initially took my Border Collie Akita Mix dog in to get his eye checked out. We were having a hard time getting a muzzle on him as he does not like to be inspected. The vet talked about an injection to put him to sleep and then another injection to wake him back up. We were skeptical, because he was an old dog and felt it might not be safe. Then the vet suggested Acepromazine, a sedative or tranquilizer. My dad and I were under the impression that this was a safe alternative. A month later my dog died. My best friend of ten years died and I cannot express in words the immense pain I feel.I feel the vet did not take proper precaution and I did not do proper research. Not only was my dog sensitive to this drug due to being an old and large breed, but also border collies sometimes have a mdr1 gene mutation that causes even more sensitivity and possible complications. The vet did not mention this or advise testing for this gene mutation.I feel drugs are not to be used lightly. It seems doctors, for pets and humans, all too easily lean on drugs. I would of rather my dog experience stress of us using a lasso method then having him experience such intense stress on his organs and dying.Please, please, please pet owners out there, research any drug given. I am usually skeptical of drugs and placed an unusual trust on someone who "studies" and practices medicine as I was scared. And now my heart, my world, has crashed down before me as I attempt to cope with the loss of the most precious being in my life.No need to respond to my review with a sorry because that will not bring my baby back.

ABC Veterinary Clinic
I've gone here for over 15 years and have had great care provided by ABC for multiple pets of mine from spaying, neutering, teeth cleaning, vaccinations, and my pets have always had great results and have been treated well. I have also been to Baring Blvd Veterinary Hospital, and they have been amazing too, just a little more expensive, and a little further away from me, but offer things like chemo for cancer and ultrasound to figure out what's going on with your pet and I am not sure if ABC offers those kinds of services or not. I would recommend ABC for reasonable cost care for your pets and great results.

Tomorrow will be one year since my beautiful maltese mix died. She was diagnosed and treated for kennel cough by this "hospital". After paying for expensive tests, was told she needed more or I must euthanize her there and then (must be expensive). Will never forgive them, either seriously incompetent or just very greedy. Stay away!

This veterinarian clinic is absolutely amazing. I brought in my boyfriend's pit bull, who is 11 and showing concerning signs... increased trouble breathing, isolating, loss of appetite and depression. Dr. Crumley was our vet and Lauren was the technician. Dr. Crumley's bedside manner was beyond amazing. I had a horrible feeling in my stomach, and he kept me calm and took great care of my sweet pup! After doing basic radiology, he needed to do an Echo, and he was very upfront and honest with me about what the results could show. Her heart was extremely enlarged and was surrounded by blood. Once we did the Echo, my worst fears were confirmed, as we found a mass and she was diagnosed with a cardial effusion (bleeding of the heart and a mass). We decided to do end of life care, and euthanize her. They provided warm towels, they explained every step in great detail, and sat with me the whole time and cried with me. The Dr. was at her left side, patting and rubbing her. Lauren was holding her head, and comforting me. And, I got to hold my sweet girl and sing to her until the very end. After it was all over, they stayed with me for nearly an hour while I got myself together, and Lauren held Sasha as I left... They took great care of her from the minute we walked in, through the end of her life, and until she came back cremated to us just a few short days later. :) I was able to come back with my boyfriend later that day to finalize payment (which was extremely fair), and they talked him through everything as well. They helped us make a beautiful plaque, and she lives in our hearts forever... We received a beautiful card, poem and paw prints in the mail, which we plan on using for my boyfriend's tattoo. I will NEVER EVER go anywhere else, this vet has my family's heart. As we have a 14 year old cat, and a 7 year old dog... we will be using them for any and all care. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Above and beyond doesn't even do them justice. I will never be able to thank you enough for being so kind and sweet, during one of the worst times of my life.
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.
