Doctor Johnson and his staff are awesome. Call him on Saturday worried sick about my Bearded Dragon, and even though they were booked he still squeezed me in. Been to many vets over the last few year and have never been happy until now! He is now my go to vet... AMAZING!!!

Acredale Animal Hospital
I am too upset to write about the details regarding the support that my dog received here. It was a huge mistake to bring my dog to Acredale. I found Dr. Nelson to be very unprofessional.

The prices are insane - I was quoted 645 to neuter my Chihuahua. I brought my Chihuahua in for an x-ray and a rabies shot - was told they had emergencies and they needed to keep him there for an hour or two. 7 hours later I called and called and they said they would get back to me. I went up there and they were all just sitting around talking about moving and what they were doing this weekend. My dog was still locked up - no shot, no x-ray.Now here is the kicker. 7 months later still receiving random bills even though I paid the day I was there. The first bill was for a random 20 dollars. No decription for what. The second bill indicated I took my dog there - when I did not - and obtained Trifexis. My dog doesn't even take Trifexis. I call every day and no one can call me back about these charges. Clearly there is a complete break down of the management of this place. Had there not been a snow storm that crippled the city I would have taken my dog to his normal vet. I won't make this mistake again.

While I feel that their veterinarians and staff are pleasant, multiple times we have been pushed with the most costly options first for treatment.The final straw was our dog having an upset stomach and we spent over $750 for tests that yielded a result of nothing more than treatment with antacids and other medication which should have been the first option.Their facilities are nice and I'm sure that their vets and technicians are knowledgeable, but trust is a big factor and I do not feel that they have a hard working family's best interests as their priority. I feel taken advantage of when comparatively they are far more expensive than equally effective veterinary practices in the area.

Absolute worst experience of my entire life. Do not EVER bring your dog to this horrible establishment. Took my dog when I walked in never told me where or let me see her. Then preceded to make me feel like a horrible dog mom when I refused to pay $1300 up front when I didn't even know what was wrong with my dog. After telling them I was uncomfortable and wanted to take my dog elsewhere they continued to make me feel selfish for not letting them take care of her and trash talking the office down the road, which is 1000 times nicer. When I said I wanted to leave and to get my dog it took them 10 minutes to go get her for me. I ended up paying $80 for absolutely nothing. The staff is the worst I have ever come in contact with, if you care about your animal at all do not go here!

On Sunday November2, 2014 we took our beloved cat to Beach Bay he had a urinary tract infection and our cat had issues with people touching his paws so they would give him some meds to calm him down to clip his nails . They gave him too much gas and he died. They are under staffed, Rude and heartless cold. Everything the other people say about their customer service is so true! To top the whole thing off they promised to call the cremation service and never did two days later I called the cremation service they had not heard a thing from them, They need a total over hall of their business, bring people in when they work on their pets and get some compassion. A customer for 6 years and that is the thanks I get a perfectly beautiful loving cat Dead! They do not understand cats and have had a poor bedside manner with him from Day One! THEY GAVE HIM TOO MUCH GAS!

I called on behalf of my Sister re: her dog because she was waiting for a return call from the Doctor. She called on 7/17 and was told the Doctor would call back the following day. Today 7/18 and it about noon I called stating the Doctor hadn't called back. The staff worker answering the phone clearly acted as if I should have known that the Doctors reporting time for today was 2pm. She became very condescending in her tone. Her professionalism truly needs to be improved. Hopefully the calls need to be recorded so a playback can be heard!! This place wouldn't be recommended to anyone that I know at all.

Just moved to the area and Dr. Sheffield spent more time with me than any vet we've ever seen. She was very caring and thorough with her exam of my boxer and I know he will get excellent care here! There was some confusion over past vet records and the staff handled it extremely professionally and got it taken care of immediately.

Pet Care Veterinary Hospital
Pet Care Veterinarian Clinic, 5201 Va. Beach Blvd., Va. Beach, VA 23462Dr. Pete Fisher is a Tidewater Va. Veterinarian who just cannot be surpassed by any other. He, his clinic & staff have the most cutting-edge latest in animal health care technology , can work with you to help you & your animal companion receive the best care possible anywhere, & are all so gentle, sympathetic & kind in handling your baby as well as helping you to understand your options. Their special warmth & caring have gotten me through some potentially devastating events involving my own deeply beloved long~time babies & the emotional wounds suffered in their eventual passings.I see 3 or 4 scathing reviews by past patient parents who've had either very painful losses or very negative experiences at Pet Care. I'm sorry for these folks as well as their priceless loved pets. But if these are the only truly unfavorable incidents out of hundreds & hundreds of other clients over the years, I'd say that the percentage of happy pet parents who continue to return to Pet Care is far greater than the unfortunate few who don't.To expect a 100% positive history score would be unfairly unrealistic. When dealing with so many different personalities among the entire staff of one business, on occasion a Crack in the structure will betimes be located.But in my own experiences with Pet Care were always positive & even suprising in the tenderness & thoughtfulness which we were given there.My aging little mentally & physically retarded little totally innocent 12 year old tortoiseshell kitty Trezzie, became very sick & couldn't eat anymore. Dr. Pete diagnosed intestinal cancer, performed the surgery to remove it, which she bounced back from with little pain or difficulty, thank God. But the biopsy came back showing her cancer was highly aggressive & would be terminal, inoperable & that she would suffer terribly til it finally would take her.Seeing my obvious pain & grief led many of the nurses to tears too, as they stood by, watching me sadly.Not wanting my precious deeply beloved little Trezzie to suffer such a horrible struggle, I opted to let Dr. Pete to end her eventual fight to live while I cradled her. But I just couldn't bear to end her gentle life in a strange place on a cold metal table.So Dr. Pete brought one of his nurses with him TO OUR HOME, & euthanized her gently in our grassy backyard that she loved while I comforted her & whispered my love & goodbyes to her as her life slipped peacefully away.What vet do you know who would go so far to spare you & your baby such added unnecessary pain?They are sharp, thorough & unusually caring, understanding & wonderfully compassionate people at Pet Care Veterinary .
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
