REVIEWS OF Animal Hospital of Lake Villa IN Wisconsin

Susan Lee

This is a group of highly skilled professionals that are also full of sincerity and compassion, both for the pets and for their owners. They were very helpful with diagnosing and treating our cat, and when the time came, they went out of their way to make her passing as painless and calming as possible.

Doug Granata

Honestly we feel they let us down today. We called this morning for our Rottie Stella who has no hips (Dual FHO) she was in pain all night and whimpered. We spoke to Carl who said he would call us back to get her taken care of. By 3 we heard nothing so we called them and they seemed to be 100% unaware we even called! So now we are told " Sorry, booked today and tommorow" Really!! Would you have been booked earlier when we called?? So now the choice to us was "Drop her off tommorow and we'll get to her when we can" she's not a car for God's sake! Last time they saw our dogs we gladly spent around 1600 no problem. Didn't complain nothing. We were told to go somewhere else! How bout this people, stay late if you love your job and charge me for it! Ill gladly pay. Too bad, they seemed nice.


This is the best animal hospital in the Lake County area. They amaze me at how caring they are towards my pets. I wouldn't take my animals to any other hospital.

Been taking ALL of my fur babies here before I was even born! My family started coming to see Dr. Ed 25 Years ago, would not trust ANYONE else with my babies. Best Hospital around!!

I have been taking pets to Animal Hospital of Lake Villa for over 20 years. They are all wonderful with pets there and give every one the personalized attention they all need. I would highly recommend this office.

Ryan James

I highly recommend Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. If you are looking for someone who is able to answer every question you have to the best of their ability and personal experience, the doctors and staff here are the best.

Sarah Harvala

Everyone was very nice! They were great with my cat:)

Diane Turner

I love the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. They take such good care of Howser.

Steven Przepasniak

They took care of my dog after she was attacked by another dog .I wasn't a previous client but they were closer and time was of the essence. Now they are my full time vet.

Jason Allen

By far the best staff I've ever seen. You can tell that this is not just a job for them. They truly care and have compassion for their patients. Worth every penny.

Courtney Eccarius

My visit was horrible in 2015... Over $200 for a few shots??? And they gassed my poor cat instead of letting me hold her while they poked her with the needle.... Not to mention they brought her back from the gas chamber (or as the "nurse" called it "The HappyBox") unconscious with her tounge hanging out. Then charged me for them gassing her. Outrageous... I will not recommend this place at all.... Way over priced and treat your animal like crap. Smells very bad in here also.

Vera Pawlowski

The staff at the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa are amazing; friendly, professional, and understanding. They treat your pet like their own and know how to make your pet relax. They do not overcharge and do not run unnecessary tests. The doctor or the staff always follow up with you at home.

Loren Love

Animal Hospital of Lake Villa is amazing! They take care of your pets as if they are their own. They also make sure to make your pet feel safe and welcome during stressful situations with treats and pets. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a good vet.

Jenni Yarnall

Lynda Claver

Dr Steve is one of a kind awesome!! Very service oriented facility pet caring friendly clean!!

Liz Baca

Adam Reizner

It wouldn't be possible to make our experience any better. Animal Hospital of Lake Villa is always great in providing gentle and competent care for our dogs. The staff is on top of things, friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. If Dr. McGinnis ever decides to retire it's going to be difficult to find another veterinarian that I trust, respect, and value as much.

Michelle Babuta

We wouldn't dream of taking our girl anywhere else. The staff is always very friendly and their genuine concern for your fur babies is very obvious.

Lisa Aschermann

Such caring staff and doctors! Most importantly to me and my family, they’re there when i need them.

Geri Mang

I have been taking my kitties to LV Animal Hospital since Dr McGinnis opened. They all know that I’m the Lake Villa Crazy Cat Lady. They all take good care of me and all my kitties.

Sharon Campbell

Every employee is caring and patient with my dog and I. My husky mix is very fearful at times and they made her feel right at home at the clinic from the very 1st time we went there. The doctor and the tech sat on the floor with her and just let her sniff them and gave her a little freeze dried chicken treats which certainly helped! I have used many vet clinics over my life and this is my favorite!!


I have been going to the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa for many years and through many pets. I feel like family when I bring my fur friends in. Everyone at the practice is friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly loves animals. I highly recommend AHLV!!!!

Tanya Parchuta

I have brought my dogs here for years. The doctors are great the staff and technicians are caring, creative and treat every animal as an individual. They focus on making the sometimes scary vet visit stress-free and even enjoyable. Can't say enough. They are the best.

Brooke Sommerfield

We've been to numerous vets before we were referred here. Unfortunately owning a pet is expensive but this animal hospital does their best to have deals on shots and dental cleanings and they also have a lot of good content on their App. They help out the community and always have something fun going on where you can bring your pet. I know my dog loves going here because he gets attention from all the sweet ladies! They are polite, courteous, and knowledgeable. They are upbeat and always sweet to my dog which makes me feel good and that he will be taken care of properly. Other places we have been to are very unpersonable and it is just another job for them. Here it is the total opposite. I will continue to come here and refer them to my friends!

Joe Vincent

My girlfriend had to go out of town and our dog got sick while she wasy away. She's the one that deals with everything so I was completely lost but she had their magnet on the fridge so I gave them a call and they helped to make everything so pain free. I seriously didn't know it was that easy to take your dog to the vet. They were very nice too and my dog was better the next day. Definitely recommend.

Kristi Griffith

First time bringing our pet here. We had a free complimentary first exam coupon from a mailer. We moved to the area within the past 6 months and adopted a great dane/pit mix puppy around Easter. We also have 2 femaile pitbulls that are sisters. We will be bringing them in when it is time for their vaccinations. Everyone was super friendly and made us feel welcomed. The vet was thorough and took extra time speaking with us. The exam room was very clean and the cost was affordable for her shots and oral flea/tick treatment. We will be scheduling her to be spayed next month and will update this review afterwards.

Jamie Shimanek

Hands down, the best! Doctors and staff are exceptional! Forget the 5 stars... it should be 20 paws!

Christine Majewski

All I can say is WOW!!! We recently began going to Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. We have a 7 year old schnauzer and a 5 month old poodle mix, which have recently both had unrelated procedures at the clinic. I have been pleasantly surprised at the level of care, passion and love that the doctors as well as ALL the staff members have for their patients. My dogs are our kids and in both surgical procedures I was nervous but felt so much better when I started receiving texts and pictures throughout the day giving me status verbal and visual updates. This put me at ease and I knew they were in GREAT Hands. I will never go anywhere else. I am so happy I found them! Do not hesitate to bring your pet here.

Robin Gazda Heinz

Dr. McGinnis and his staff provide excellent care for all my pets. This is the only practice I would entrust with the wellbeing of my much loved fur family.

Jme Maria

Everyone was so nice and the ability to get in on a weekend was really convenient for my family. Our appointment was for later in the week and we were able to get in early after someone cancelled. The Vet and Vet Tech were very knowledgeable and so kind to our dog and toddler (who was a little too curious about the room). We are so happy to have such a great business in our community.

Justin Vander Meer

Matt and Dr. Unger were incredible with our dog Peanut! He had previous owners that were abusive and our last vet trip at another place did not go well. They put in a lot of time getting him comfortable with them and it worked out well. Thank you for taking good care of him!

Pat Powers

Animal Hospital of Lake Villa is GREAT! The staff and doctors are fantastic. My dog created a fear for vets from a bad experience elsewhere. Dr McGinnis has been very patient with her starting with meet and greets from the start. They are a fear free clinic and will do everything possible to to make adjustments so your pets are comfortable without using force. I highly recommend Animal Hospital of Lake Villa.

Joe K

We found Lake Villa Animal Hospital to be a breath of fresh air. Our pets were treated with kindness and respect. Watching our dogs get vaccinations while under the influence of smoked chicken was a sight to behold. We don’t think they cared as long as the chicken was coming. They even shared some with us humans. We also like the PetDesk app that they had told us about. It’s a great way to track our dogs health records and appointments. Thank you Dr. Unger, Dr. McGinnis, and last but not least by any means, Matt. The whole staff is very nice to deal with.

Tiffany Lee

This is a great hospital, I highly recommend it. It's not too pricey and everyone there is extremely nice and caring. The place it's self is always very clean and calm. And when it comes to medical things, they explain everything very thoroughly and always answer any questions I have. I know I can trust them with my dog and it's honestly a really great place.


Very good hospital. My pets are treated well. When they put my pets up and down, I did notice that, unlike other animal hospitals, they did this in a very gentle way and make sure my corgis long back are protected. This is very professional. And they have really good chicken treats that my corgis just love them. The doctor is so good at calming them down during examination. I am glad I switched my pets hospital to Lake Villa.

Drew Walsh

Recently I had to bring my cat to Animal Hospital of Lake Villa for a diagnose of diabetes and it was tough for me to regulate his medication, but after seeing Dr. McGinnis, I realized how great of a veterinarian he really is. He completely explained what I needed to do for my cat. The staff in general just does not compare to other doctors, and I recommend Animal Hospital of Lake Villa to everyone.

Randy Klocke

Dr. Unger and staff are Fantastic! You guys take the time to answer all questions and you don’t rush to get onto the next patient. You treat Linus and Maverick as if they were your very own. That means a lot to me.

Jodi Vanalphen

I was impressed by the staff and the cleanliness of the facility. Everyone was very friendly and show genuine concern for your pet

sheila kane

Excellent care. Very compassionate!

Lynn Bessner

I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family. I have always had a great experience bringing my pets here...they really care about the animals and the owners.

Maira Ochoa

We love Dr Mcginniss and his staff! We like that they are local and close to home. We like supporting small community businesses. I especially appreciate "Half off Tuesdays"! That deal/incentive is a HUGE help as we are paying out of pocket for the majority of the visit. We appreciate the professional attention and genuine care. Shiloh (our dog) wants me to mention his favorite part ;). The exam because they give him lots of yummy treats and lots of loving attention! ;)

Pamela Jay

My feline companion of 18 years was very ill and unfortunately had to be put down. Since new to the area I searched the internet for the highest rated animal hospital in the area. The Animal Hospital of Lake Villa with its 5 star rating is where I would be going. The Doctor and his staff handled this most difficult of life's tasks with not only concern for my cat, Pi, but for me as well. I highly recommend these caring compassionate Doctors and their staff.

Robert Wissing

Absolutely the very best there is. Every single person here is wonderful and truly care from the heart. Thank you AHLV for EVERYTHING!

Riccarda Eickenberg

This Animal Hospital is great! Everyone on their team is extremely friendly and helpful.

Karen Sodersten

My dog has always received excellent treatment. The staff is awesome!

Sharon Wick

I was impressed with Animal Hospital of Lake Villa when we first walked in the dog entrance and were greeted by friendly staff. The new patient experience just got better from there for my Cairn Terrier, Daphne. Dr. Unger was so gentle with my 11 year old fur baby and he explained her exam and findings to me in terms a human could understand. Daphne had surgery and she is doing well thanks to Dr. Unger and his team of caring assistants. This facility offers quality care for your pet with senior discounts and a rewards program that offers cash discounts for accumulated points. It’s a win, win for you and your pet!

Wayne Bennett

I love how Dr. McGinnis is so knowledgeable and really cares about your pet and what is the best decisions for them. He has so much experience and is a great Veterinarian.

Blanca Marrero

So friendly, clean, and knowledgeable. We came from a horrible experience with the petsmart vets. Dr Unger was able to diagnose and prescribe meds that completely reversed my dogs skin irritations and she looks amazing. She was going through this for over a year with the other vets!! He thought it would take her months to recover but within the month of taking the medication you would have never known she had a problem. The petsmart Corp needs vets and assts. like this animal hospital. They are there to care for your pet not make them worse!! I would highly recommend them for all your pets medical needs

Cindy Rippa

Amazing team of smart, compassionate animal lovers committed to making veterinary care a fear-free experience. Dr. Ed and crew stay on top of the latest advances in care, and go above and beyond for my own dogs and my foster dogs. Highly recommend.

Seana Balman

My dog loves coming here! Truly a no fear clinic. People are so kind and truly care about the animals.

D. P. Mackey

Everything was perfect.

Andrea Miller

Amanda Wendlandt

Over the last few months we have gone through the entire gambit of emotions with our pup. We noticed some limpy-ness and decided to take her in for her yearly visit a little early. Thank goodness we did. It was a normal office visit with incredibly friendly staff, we were taken in back, pup was given her shots and treats. We talked about some other goodies and opted for the blood test. Pretty normal over all, till that phone call, you know the one you never want…our pup had Lyme. Well I went through every emotion and the tech and doctor, heck their entire staff calmed me and answered every inane and insane question I had. We set a treatment course and she is pretty close to perfect with just has some stiffness which for a large 7 year old dog is pretty normal anyway. I’m not sure if I can really express how caring, informative and easy to work with the entire staff of AHLV is but I hope that it comes across here. It was an incredibly scary thing for us to experience and I honestly could not imagine what it would have been like to go through it without them. I was always informed, they continuously provided me comfort and course for what we were going to do or recommended. We were always aware of what to expect or what to keep an eye out for. I have not had that experience with human doctors, so to experience it with my pets doctors/staff and not have to beg for information. Irreplaceable. Thank you everyone at AHLV for helping US through an incredibly scary thing with grace and patience…and love for my pup.

Judith Howard

We were very satisfied with our pets treatment at the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. The staff and doctors are great to work with.

Jack G

The staff is so great and friendly working with our senior pup. We treat our animals like family and so does the staff each appointment we have.

Ashley Bardy

The staff is just so pleasant and helpful. Both doctors are just wonderful with any animal, big or small. Highly recommend this vet.

Tracy Lambert

Jason Reno

Love this place. They have taken very good care of our pets, and where very accommodating to my girlfriend and I when we lost our older dog last year. No pressure, lots of options and have always been flexible

David Weiser

This has to be the most pet and people friendly animal hospital in Illinois. The staff is super friendly and easy to talk with. I was greeted with smiles, friendly conversation and an offer of a cup of coffee. The staff and doctors cuddle and hug your pets and offer calm reassuring conversations with them . They have a separate entrance and waiting area for dog and separate entrance and waiting area for cats and other pets. They have the plug in pheromones scents for dogs and cats to help your pet stay calm. They offer smoked chicken breast to dogs as they examine them to make the trip to the vet as stress free as possible. We have been bringing our pets here for 18 years.

Lynn Grosclaude

As always, everyone was polite, helpful, and professional. I was even offered coffee or soda while I waited! They clearly love what they do and love our “babies” almost as much as we do. Even when it was a 165 pound bundle of drool, flying fur, destructive tail, and love, they were caring and loving. Shout out to Dr. Morton and Brittany!!!

Chris Fisherkeller

It was a great experience. I appreciated how accommodating everyone was for my anxious dog. The vet tech moved the waiting room chair into the exam room since Roxy did not want to move off of it. The rest of the exam was done with her sitting comfortably on her "safe" chair:-)

Sandy LaBuda

We have been going to the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa since they opened. They are always very friendly, accommodating and compassionate. We have two very skittish labs and the vets and assistance take all the time they need to calm them down and earn their trust (using tiny pieces of chicken) before even approaching them. Last week we needed to get one of the dogs in for a problem and they got us in within 2 hours. They took all the time our dog needed even though they were squeezing us in. We have never had a problem with a diagnosis or treatment. He highly recommend Dr McGinnis and staff.

Wendi Hardina

Megan Fritz

I've taken my adopted dog here since we moved from Colorado. I've never met a vet so knowledgeable and personable. It's nice to go to an office and not be treated like a dollar sign. I've had a few emergency scares ( my pup tried to eat ibproufin) & they were helpful and professional. The added bonus is that you deal with one Doctor. It's always the same vet seeing your pet. If I could give them 6 stars, I would.

Maria P.

My family has been bringing their pet's here for a very long time so when I adopted my little puppy a few years ago, naturally I started bringing him here. The staff are truly animal lovers, there is not a single person there that does not adore my little guy. Everyone remembers him by his name and loves to give him attention, which is great because bringing him to the vet kind of stresses him out so this really eases his pain for him. There hasn't been a problem Dr. McGinniss can't solve and I just don't think I would ever go anywhere else. They're AAHA accredited and very clean! Overall great care for your pet!

Kris Campbell

Linda Hennum

Great doctors, great staff, state of the art facility what more can you ask for to care best for your pet? Highly recommend Animal Hospital of Lake Villa.

Hannah VP

They are so friendly and my cats love them.

Droneography from the Ground Up!

Absolutely a terrible clinic. Misdiagnosed, immature receptionist. Never going back and this is after several years of going here. They used to be great.

James Lockefeer

Nick Ott

Brea Klebba

Unbelievably rude and immature receptionist. Not only was she snippy with a potential new client, but she refused to honor my coupon for a discount on my visit. I had enough of her attitude and made the permanent decision to continue going to the Lindenhurst Animal Hospital exclusively.

David Pettinger

Our dog, Lulu, a 9 year old Puggle has developed Cushings disease. The kind and wonderful staff a the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa have taken good care of her and have conducted a variety of test. They are the same tests that the specialists were going to conduct, but for a more affordable rate. We thank the Doctors and staff for the care and skill they have shown over the last month. We are hoping for a positive result that will involve a treatment that can give our dog some much needed relief.

Tony Lieberum

1st visit and was impressed by the staff, the clean office and rooms. But more importantly that you had a separate waiting area for cats. As my cat get stressed going to the vet and having dogs around.

Laurie Walker

I have always been satisfied with the treatment my pets receive at Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. The doctors have a lot of experience and knowledge of the industry, so they always do what is right.

Laura Wlodarczyk

Your service is the best we have ever received. Thank you for your hard work and dedication! Keep up the great work! We would be lost without you all.

Susan Aubrie

I have been taking my pets to Animal Hospital of Lake Villa for over a decade. I love how quickly my animals can be seen by the Vet and that the staff is very friendly and caring which makes the time there much more enjoyable.

Keith Griffin

I admit that my dog is not very accommodating but it is never an issue with the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa. They provide fantastic service.

Heather Malik

We absolutely love everyone at Lake Villa Animal Hospital. They have been nothing short of amazing with our Cooper and Tucker!

David Vincent

Best Animal Hospital around! Would recommend their services to anyone!

Carol Hope

Animal Hospital of Lake Villa has been our vet for years. It is an excellent clinic with staff who genuinely care about the animals they treat. I highly recommend.

Karrie Hallas

Can’t say enough about Dr Unger, Brittani and the entire staff at AH of LV ! Appreciate the compassion and kindness in putting my mind at ease while you took care of Tucker in an emergency situation. You’re truly the BEST!

Emily Cheverez

I recently moved into the Lake Villa area and did not have a nearby vet to take my dog when she got sick. My cousin recommended this animal housed I absolutely love it there. The staff there are so friendly and nice and they actually show that they care for your pet. They even smoke their own chicken and give to the pets as we wait. I will definitely be making this my go to vet from now on. They treated my dog and within a day or two you can see a significant change.

Megan Yacullo

Our experience was phenomenal. I was so impressed by the entire staff and their commitment to making sure they gave Mr. Pamuk a thorough exam, even though he's a very difficult patient. From the playlist of calming music to the calming pheromones, they did everything they could to make him comfortable and at ease. Dr. Mcginnis was so thoughtful in explaining things to us, and made sure we had everything we needed in order to get our baby feeling better. We will most certainly be back for all of our pets needs. You guys are great!

julie morgan

Great doctors and staff. My doggies are treated so nicely!

Robert Thompson

We had our newly adopted rescue dog Rusty in for his first Vet visit. Dr. Unger and staff were all friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Rusty got a thorough evaluation and all of our questions were answered. We look forward to many years of this excellent care for Rusty.

Aimee Anderson

I just want to say A HUGE THANK YOU TO Matt and So ashamed i forgot the beautiful tech that stopped this morning to help a lady and i who came across a dog that someone hit and left for dead. They were on their way to work and stopped and helped No questions asked. So many people drove past makes me sad how heartless people are these days. Im proud their are still selfless people as Matt and the other tech who went above and beyond even off the clock. Hope the owners find some peace knowing where hebis now. And Karma to the person who hit and left him their for dead.

Mark McClellan

Our "baby", Millie, needed her teeth cleaned and some skin growths removed. They did a great job on both and kept us up to date each step of the way. They truly care about the pets and the owners. #1 in our book.

Michael McGinniss

always top notch service, a great place for pets.

Quentin Jones

The staff does an amazing job at scheduling appointments in a timely manner. They're also pretty great with making sure that you're seen on time.

daemon woods

H Walkington

I love that AHLV is able to have me drop off my dog before work and take a look at whatever is needed and then text me the details or call me . This flexibility is what makes such a huge difference to me in my choice of animal hospital. Of course the amazing staff is upside too!!

Loann Morelli

Bob Gray

Absolutely amazing staff here, always super friendly and great with animals. I highly recommend them to my friends for their pet needs.

Marie Hendon

Dr. McGinnis, Sean, and all of his staff are wonderful people to do business with. They are constantly working to make a trip to the vet less stressful for the the animals and their guardians. Compassion for all animals is evident here, along with consideration for the guardian's pocketbooks! Highly recommended!

Julie Burton

Great first experience with our nervous dog Gizmo at a new vets. They surely tried very hard to make Gizmo feel at ease and I greatly appreciated their efforts. Everyone was so friendly and helpful! Thank to all the staff!

Brittany GIannoni

Exceptionally kind and compassionate staff! Vets & techs are knowledgeable animal lovers Supports our very nervous small dog. Our kittens are always excited to go, they jump in their crate! Patient and helpful office staff also! Everything is above & beyond at AH of LV... they love our pets!

Debbie Pauley

Your staff was kind, loving and professional. I appreciated that you took a conservative approach to my pet's health. By partnering with you, we were able to avoid surgery. I can't thank you enough!

Ashley Gaiser

I really like that the entire staff at Animal Hospital of Lake Villa has the best interest of the animals at heart. They take their time to fully examine each pet to make sure everything is ok. In addition, they always explain everything in detail which is comforting.

samantha mandarino

Best animal hospital ever! They truly care about your pet and doing what is best for them in every situation.

Samantha R

I have been coming here for over 18 years - all of my pets have been greeted and treated as if they were the staff's own pets. Everything is always well explained and when I call with questions and concerns I am given immediate and helpful feedback.

georgina buckley

I can never thank them enough for all that they do for my pets. Their customer service is top notch. It is always a pleasure going to see them and working with every member of their staff.

Carrie R

Animal Hospital of Lake Villa is a great place. They have always provided nothing but great care for both of our dogs. Marilyn is always great with handling them since they really do not enjoy going to the vet. Thank you so much.

Bethany Shore

Thank you for taking such excellent care of our pup! I appreciate that you treat her as your own and are so compassionate. During her recent dental procedure, it was comforting to get regular updates throughout the day. I highly recommend Animal Hospital of Lake Villa!

Lony Brazda

We have had a relationship with Dr. Unger for many years and have found him to be a most knowledgeable and caring practitioner. He always takes time to assure that we understand his recommendations and treatments for our pet. Each visit begins with Dr. Unger comforting and assuring our pet that he is a friend. His attitude and approach toward our pet is mirrored by his staff. They are also wonderful. The office is divided for dogs and cats and is always clean and pleasant. We highly recommend the Animal Hospital of Lake Villa.

Shawn Forsythe

Love this Fear Free atmosphere and their willingness to work with your dog at the dog's pace. Carl Shanor was especially helpful in making sure my young dog had her vaccinations done in the most effective way possible, and the whole staff treats you and your pet like family. The doctors are amazing. I would never take my pets anywhere else and I highly recommend them, especially if you have an animal that might need a little extra love and encouragement! Grace and Dr. McGuiness were able to handle my very nervous cat including drawing blood and getting a shot, in such a kind and caring manner that by the time we came home, my cat acted like we had never even left the house. Thank you all so much!!!

Amanda Owens

Brought my rabbit here for a teeth trimming and they crack his tooth and cut his lip. Had to pay $60 even after telling them how horrible of a job that was done. Will never go back!

Debra Lloyd-Lawrence

This is a great Animal Hospital! Great doctors and Helpers! My lab died a couple years ago . I was home alone and they sent one of their workers to my house to help me with the dog. He couldn't get up and was in such pain. The girl that helped me picked him up and put him into her car, then took him to the animal hospital. No Doubt this hospital has some very caring people working with them. I give them a 5 star review!

Tammy Lowy

Melissa C.

The staff is super friendly and is wonderful with caring for my cat! All of the experiences my pet and I have had have been positive. Their fear-free practices really have helped my cat (who has anxiety). Excellent animal hospital! :)

Would rate them a zero if I could.. Misdiagnosed my cat. Lied and stated her thyroid values were out of range and she had hyperthyroidism. When I obtained her records found her values never out of range. Never going back and this is after several years of going here. They used to be great. Can diagnosis well animals but don't bring your sick animal to them.. The reception staff is immature and lies. Told me 2x they would send the medical records and never did. I had to get their emergency center involved. Was told her records were "over 200 pages" and crashed every computer that they tried to use to send me. In actuality, her records were 74 pages which was confirmed by another person at the center. Will report this cat could have died. Went from 9.5 lbs to 5.8lbs. Took her elsewhere - first visit the vet listened to me, reviewed her records, examined her and tentatively diagnosed my cat. Put her on meds and in one week she gained nearly a pound is more active and alert, and no longer has diarrhea so my basement doesn't have to be covered in chuks. So grateful for RLAH...

Lilianukas Pacer

Love clinic, love Dr. McGinnis. They have been taking care of my 4 cats for 13 years now and I never had any issues. Just pleasant experiences.

Deborah Buck

I have taken all of my pets there over the years since it opened. Simply the best.

Eugene Pomianek

Have take all are little ones there for over fifteen years, Very happy with Dr Ed . Cost does not matter when your pets are your family
