  • I would not recommend this business
  • Small practice, close to the area
  • Unfriendly, some staff seem uneducated

I took my dog here for what seemed to be a skin rash. The staff didn't seem friendly or polite at all. I didnt feel comfortable with the visit. Nothing personable or welcoming about this place. I was referred to this place after asking about a good vet in the local area. I find it strange that almost all the other vets in the area keep their facebook, social mrdua and business oage up to date with pics, information, staff, etc. This one doesnt do that. It may be personal preference but i think its nice when you're able to see those things for a vet office.

  • not friendly, does not appreciate repeat business.

My dog receives a heartworm dose every month,12 months a year. I provide this faithfully since my dog is a very important member of my family. I was told by the person at the front desk they would not sell me the heartworm medication since they only showed only one 6 months supply purchased. I informed them that my other dog had passed away and I was using the remainder of his supply. She still would not sell me the heartworm medication. I will now find to a more friendly clinic, even if I have the test done again.

Customer Testimonials

This place is absolutely wonderful. The veterinarians and staff you couldn’t ask for better or more helpful. I’m diabetic and so is my dog and I accidentally gave him my insulin. I rushed him up to their office and they took him right in.

We had to put our dog Buff down last Thursday. Dr. Spiece and staff couldn't have been more caring and sympathetic. I've had Buff since 2002. This was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make, but it was time. Today I received a card from all the staff that brought a tear to my eye. Thank you Dr. Spiece and all your staff.

Great place to take any animal! Even if you have a powerful, excited, rambunctious pitbull! They always handle her great, and give her lots of love! She may be a handful but they are still wonderful to her! Thank you!!

I wouldn't even think about going anywhere else. Mercedes always loved it there, and so do Lola, and our newest addition, Zoey. Great people! Kind and caring staff without a doubt!! Even a few years back, when I found out that Mercedes was very sick... When she passed away, the staff was so understanding and so very kind. Thanks to all of you!!!!!

Very pleased with my first visit here today. Staff was extremely friendly and kind to both my boyfriend and I along with our kitty friend. They handled him well and cared about his health. He'll be going back for a neutering soon!

Wish we would have come here sooner! Excellent friendly and helpful Dr. and staff! A real pleasure to visit. Took exceptional care of our cats. THANK YOU!! We will never go to another vet again.
