 Coco lola W. - 01/19/2019

" I have been bringing my fury family members to 1st Pet North Valley for more than a year and started coming because the quality of care is above and beyond what you get anywhere else. The Doctor’s , technician’s as well as the remaining staff are knowledgeable, caring and very respectful of all my concerns and treat my fur babies as if they were their own. I can’t speak or write more highly of this Vetrinary medical clinic and ER. Thank you , sincerely C. Wright "

 Rocky S. - 01/12/2019

" I was extremely surprised by the level of compassion and professionalism from the staff. The emergency visit as well as the follow up appointment, all of my expectations were surpassed. BEST place I have been to in a long time. They even took into consideration my dog is dog-aggressive and made arrangements to get him in and out of the office. Will be coming here for all future needs! "

" I can't express enough how grateful we are for 1st pet's doctors and staff. They saved our puppy on Christmas day. They showed so much love to our puppy and kept us updated every step of the way. Our puppy loves them as much as we do now. Thank you staff, you all are God sends. "

 Geordi J. - 01/01/2019

" Great first impression "

 Dot R. - 12/07/2018

" All of our interactions with both the Doctors and the technicians has always been excellent. Everyone is always very friendly. They remember us and our girls. I also really love that we get into a room quickly and don't usually wait in the lobby. So, there are no issues with other pets. "

 Calai T. - 12/04/2018

" All was excellent, I use you as not only my emergent vet but my regular vet appointments as well! I know my pets are in the best care!! "

 Roxy G. - 12/01/2018

" Everything goes well every time we come in! "

 Ubie C. - 12/01/2018

" Very pleasing and satisfying experience. I would recommend them to everyone. They are very professional and caring. I took my big Ragdoll cat there to have a lot of mats removed from his fur. They sedated him, shaved his fur and he came out looking like a lion and all the mats were gone. Thank you Dr. Caruso and your team for taking such good care of my cat. Dee Dee Campbell "

 Taylor I. - 12/01/2018

" My cat was less than cooperative and the staff handled her carefully but firmly. No one got hurt. All the staff treat my pets like they were their own pets. "

 Midnight G. - 11/28/2018

" This is the second time I visited Pet1. This time, we were left in the exam room for an hour after the Doctor finished with us. I took my dog out to the front desk to ask if they forgot us. No one told them I was done. Again, this is the second time this happened to us. I guarantee this will NOT happen a third time. The doctor was unable to diagnose the problem. Using antibacterial wipes at $16.00 a tub, is not the correct solution. This means we will have to go back... But, that is next week. "

 Roxy P. - 11/27/2018

" Brooke was awesome! "

 Buster R. - 11/27/2018

 Gracie Y. - 11/21/2018

" The sincere loving attention that was given my dog is so very much appreciated! "

 Rocco J. - 11/20/2018

" The concern shown for our pets is important to us. Thank you. "

 Ivy L. - 11/20/2018

" I only wish that I could find doctors I like as much for myself and my children! I feel like the staff as a whole displays genuine love for their profession and it shows from start to finish. I will never take my animals anywhere else. "

 Pip Y. - 11/16/2018

" I had brought in a cat that was very scared and nervous and the time of the visit there was a loud vacuum that was on that made my cat more stressed. the techniachian saw this and told him to turn it off which was very nice and helped my cat calm down a little bit. "

 Boo K. - 11/13/2018

" Brought my kitty in due to a hurt paw...no visible sign of any trauma. Top of his paw was the most sensitive. Had to do an X-ray of course to rule out any breaks/fractures. Appears that when they strapped him down to take the X-ray, they hurt his paw even more than it was when we walked in. Seems a bit more swollen now than before. Dr Vernon said they had to tie him down right where the injury/sore spot was...really? Not other way you could get an X-ray besides hurting the already injured area? Now we are starting all over again with the healing process. No sign of any breaks/fractures. Dr. Vernon said probably a soft tissue bruise, etc. Wish you could have secured him in another way as to not re-injure his already injured paw. Not we wait and if it gets worse, I will be forced to bring him back, but I am not happy how he appeared to be further injured by the X-ray process. Goodness people....I know we can do better than this? Would this be acceptable to you if it were your kid with a broken arm? Very disappointed on how he was treated in the X-ray room. Love Dr. Vernon...she was wonderful..this is no reflection on her, but wasn't sure if she was overseeing this or if it was the techncians that injured him all over again. "

 Sarah W. - 11/10/2018

" As always DR. Vernon and all her staff members are caring, professional and attentive to each and every concern I may have; and they continue to give my animals the best care possible. Thank you, Connie Wright "

 Harley M. - 11/09/2018

" Taking care of our family dog after being hit by a car. Instructing us well on proper care and exercises for recovery. Listening to my concerns and really making us feel welcomed and cared for. Thanks so so much!! You guys will forever be our vet now!! "

 Bella L. - 11/08/2018

" Nikki is amazing as always. Bella LOVES her! "

 Mikey pants N. - 11/03/2018

 Guisla M. - 11/03/2018

" We truly recomend this clinic... excellent staff... very kind, very human. "

 Anya W. - 11/02/2018

" I love this place!!! "

 Scooby doo S. - 10/31/2018

" This was my first visit to 1st Vet and I was very impressed with their care, concern and willingness to answer my questions. Scooby was incredibly well treated and they even called the next day to see if she was doing okay!! Super impressed!!!! "

 Cooper Z. - 10/30/2018

" We came here as our regular vet office could not get us in to be seen for several days. This facility is beautiful and the exam rooms are nicely decorated with top notch equipment. I liked the separation of dogs / cats in the clinic. The tech was wonderful with my dog and took down all my concerns. Vet was also very attentive and genuinely seemed to like animals. Explained options for treatment of symptoms and potential costs ( X-rays and assoc. fees ) I liked the quick check out done in the exam room, although it would be nice to see a "breakdown" of the charges. The only thing that I didn't care for was the 30 minute wait beyond our appointment time to be seen but I understand that sometimes that is beyond the doctor's control. "

 Lily N. - 10/30/2018

" Love this place. The snacks are an added bonus. "

 Sami cat N. - 10/29/2018

" The examination. The doctor did so well with my new puppy. "

 Coco lola W. - 10/27/2018

" The technician whom cleaned my dogs ears before packing them was extremely gentle and more thorough than I thought possible at removing so much debris, I was very pleased the quality of care given as usual. Thank you . "

 Cooper E. - 10/23/2018

" Working with my dog to make him trust the Vet instead of just holding him down to inspect him. Listening to everything wrong and keeping my dog in the room with me instead of taking him away. Will be making you my regular vet from mow on. "

 Halo S. - 10/23/2018

" The entire staff is caring and kind. They are reassuring as well. The new location is so comfortable and every time I am there, they take extra steps to make sure that my dogs are comfortable and happy and I am too. It is easy to get an appointment and they are usually on time, barring a lot of emergencies. If I have to wait during any emergency I don't mind, as I know if I was coming in under those circumstances, my pets would be the priority. That is how I first came to know them and my animals have been clients since that time, which was back in 2008. I have always received the best care. They have seen me through 2 dogs who have passed due to old age and my current dogs. I am very happy there. "

 Neko H. - 10/23/2018

" We actually made an appointment for Neko elsewhere but brought him to you instead. Without hesitation you treated Neko anyway. Thank you !!! "

 Beethoven W. - 10/23/2018

 Mojo A. - 10/12/2018

" Great staff! And Dr. Venable has been fantastic! Extremely professional with us and invested in building that relationship and trust with individual patients so necessary for provision of treatments to animals. I am picky about my veterinarians and I MUST feel the doctor is both knowledgeable and well-trained, and be comfortable and secure in the fact that the doctor genuinely cares about my kids; Dr Venable (& staff) definitely meet our high personal standards. "

 Pookie L. - 10/11/2018

 Bella M. - 09/07/2018

" Dr. Dahlquist is the best vet we have ever had. I wish she was more than an emergency vet because we would have her as our regular vet in a heartbeat. She clearly cared about the well being of our dog more than anything else. She was hands down the best thing about our visit. "

 Bear F. - 09/03/2018

" You treated Bear like he was your own pet. That said a lot. "

 Sarah W. - 09/02/2018

" Each and every person from the moment you enter the building to the time you leave treat you and your pet with the most sincere genuine warmth and commitment to meeting all your needs , I will only use 1st Pet as they truly care are commited and are more knowledgeable than any place I have ever gone before. DR. Vernon and her staff are the best of the best!!!! Thank You Connie Wright�� "

 Suki L. - 09/01/2018

" I was impressed that they listened to me regarding the abuses that I had been informed of when I rescued Suki two years ago. They also understood that I was raised to take care of my own animals until such time as was necessary to see a vet, without judgement about it. I was raised around ranches and farm animals that we looked out for and treated as necessary. I also had worked for the county vet in the mountains where I grew up, and know basic techniques to maintain healthy animals. They were understanding and did not try to tell me Ive done anything wrong along the way, as Suki came out with a clean bill of health after 2 years in my care. Only paat injury arthritis andaging issues are of any trouble to her. I was also told over the counter treatments to help her feel better that most vets will not tell about. "

 Winston B. - 08/31/2018

" Absolute competence and kindness! "

 Lotte J. - 08/29/2018

 Nauroth J. - 08/17/2018

" This place is awesome! We've been taking our dog here for a couple of years now and they have always exceeded my expectations. They are perfect for both emergencies as well as general health maintenance of your pets. Everyone from the front desk staff to the technicians to the doctors are all truly exceptional at what they do. They are all not only very knowledgeable, but they seem to really love what they do and it shows in how they make you feel like they truly care about your pet and all of your concerns. "

 Jasper K. - 08/17/2018

" Getting an accurate diagnosis was extremely important to me. Thank you. "

 Rose R. - 08/16/2018

" The new location is great! The facility is clean, large, and inviting. One suggestion is to place a pet waste station nearby with bags, if feasible. "

 Etta H. - 08/15/2018

" You guys are great. "

 Halo S. - 08/14/2018

" The staff is always kind concerned and very focused on pet's comfort. I have always been satisfied. The new offices are fantastic, and I appreciate the Senior Discount! Every person I interacted with was wonderful. I have been bringing my dogs here for 12 years. I now have 2 dogs, and previously I had 2 that have passed away. I appreciate the convenience and the hours provided. I do notplan on going anywhere else. "

 Kimo K. - 08/11/2018

" A shaded/turf or other area for arriving pets to do their business upon arrival would be great! I know it is Phoenix, but a car ride and anxiety tend to demand a relief break and the 7th Ave location is hot! "

 Lexi W. - 08/08/2018

" Continually helps to work with my Lexi and her major stress and anxiety of nail trims! "

 Dixie R. - 08/08/2018


 Ellie B. - 08/01/2018

" I absolutely love your office. My dogs aren’t always well behaved and they get easily scared and uncooperative and the staff is so patient and gentle with them. I cannot tell you how much that means to me. You don’t hurry them along or add unneeded stress. Thank-you! "

 Doodles E. - 07/28/2018

" There was lots of love shown to my sweet girl "

 Trixie W. - 07/24/2018

 Timmie R. - 07/12/2018

" It took three staff members to check me in for surgery appointment. The first one didn’t know how to. The second one did a good job but left me with papers to sign then took another client back and never returned. The third one came out saying “is someone helping you?” She then proceeded to finish my paperwork. "

 Bubba W. - 07/05/2018

" The care and attention is always the best of the best ; I wouldn’t go anywhere else, as I trust Dr. Vernon and the entire staff with my Bubba and Sarah’s health needs. "

 Dot R. - 07/04/2018

" I really appreciated that the Doctor called throughout my dogs dental work to keep me up dated on how she was doing. It is really great to feel that the Dr. cares for your pet the way you want them to be cared for! "

 Rose R. - 07/04/2018

" The new facility is large, clean, and great. We had two interactions with two front desk staff. The first interaction went well as they explained waiting to clear a room and brought basket of refreshments. The second interaction was while checking out and the staff member did not seem interested in assisting with scheduling, handling payments. The doctor ans technicians were very nice, explained everything they were doing and why. We look forward to returming to visit this location. "

 Dixie R. - 07/04/2018

" Keep up the great work!!! "

 Nash W. - 06/16/2018

" Kaylee and Dr Caruso have been working with our dog Nash. They have been wonderful. He has anxiety. He is afraid of some noises, people and wouldn't let anyone pick him up..When we first starting going there he wouldn't let any strangers touch him or go near him. He now lets them pet him, listen to his heart and breathing. The front staff is very friendly when we come in too. "

 Dakota H. - 06/16/2018

" Great office staff, medical team and Doctor Highly recommend "

 Rocky T. - 06/14/2018

 Arrow O. - 06/12/2018

" There is nothing that I can think of that the staff could have done better or one particular thing that went well. Every time we visit 1st Pet are experience is a great one. The staff is always very nice and take the time to answer any and all questions we have. This is the best Vet office I have ever been to. I drive 40 minutes to get there because we love this place! "

 Max S. - 06/09/2018

 Kahlua W. - 05/26/2018

" I would have liked to know that my small dog would be sick for a few days after shots. We won't give them to her all at once in the future. I really like Dr. Vernon and the front office staff. They will call and check on the animals which lets me know they care. Thank you. "

 Kayla H. - 05/17/2018

" All the staff are excellent. They really care about your pet and you. "

 Frieda F. - 05/17/2018

" Prices for a non-emergency visit and standard procedures (blood work, medication, sedation, etc.) are quite a bit higher than the average vet, but the staff seem to genuinely care about my animals and are very kind to pet owners. I like the “Fear Free” policy, too. Great place to take your pets! "

 Amy B. - 05/11/2018

" Love this vet, Vernon is amazing and she does so amazing with my animals! "

 Wilson H. - 05/04/2018

" We picked 1st Pet as our go to vet mainly because they also offer 24 hour emergency care. We have a rescue puppy who is very fearful of people and they are excellent with her. We've taken her there 2x for a nail trim and she has yet to hesitate to go. "

 Grayson C. - 04/28/2018

" Dr. Caruso has been amazing to my dog Buddy. She is very nice and knowledgeable. We have seen her twice now and she never pressured us into spending more than we were comfortable with, but always recommended what was best for Buddy. Will be staying with 1st Pet Vet because of her! "

 Princess P. - 04/20/2018

" Everything went very well on our visit except the blood draw. That wasn’t a major issue, just a little more stress for my cat. "

 Angelina M. - 04/19/2018

" Dr Vernon was so great to take all 3 of our cats at once to give them their vaccinations, so we would have time to make sure they did not have any adverse reactions to them before we went on vacation. The whole team at 1st pet has always been great to work with over the years to help our pets get healthy again when they have been real sick. "

 Sophie W. - 04/17/2018

" Dr Vernon was very good at listening to my concerns and provided excellent advise for my cats issue "

 Tessa R. - 03/10/2018

" I still think vet prices are ridiculous... $22 for a nail trim that takes 5 min is outrageous. That’s the main reason my dog goes to a groomer - she gets a bath, brush, anal glands, nail trim and ear cleaning for $35 out the door. "

 Kleopatra E. - 03/02/2018

" I have used them mainly for after hours emergencies over the past 10 years or so. With the most difficult decisions I had to face, I was treated with the utmost respect, and was given plenty of time to say my good byes. Everyone here is caring, compassionate and understanding. I highly recommend 1st Pet for taking care of your furry 4-legged kids. "

 Jack T. - 02/27/2018

" I absolutely loved how well everyone interacted with my dog. Being deaf and half blind he gets overly anxious at the vet and they did everything to make his anxiety decrease. I couldn't ask for a better experience or vet clinic for my fur babies. "

 Jackson H. - 02/06/2018

" Words can not describe our whole experience with 1st Pet Vet on Union Hills. From the minute you hit the front door, to the minute you leave, everyone is exceptional! I love how everyone makes the conscience effort to call your pet by name, rather than a generality. Our tech Kaylie was so professional, bubbly, thorough and listened intently to any comments that we wanted to note. Our Doctor, Christina Vernon, DVM, talked honestly and offered great suggestions and professional advice. Although I did not note the names of the ladies at the front desk, they too were a fantastic representation for 1st Pet. They made the initial check in and the check out a professional experience. Be proud 1st Pet Veterinary Centers!!! "

 Bandit G. - 01/31/2018

" You could.of told us payment plans were availiable once we found out that our dog needed surgery instead of giving us the feeling of no hope at first to save our dog's life. There was a lot of precious time waisted to where my dog almost went septic that could have been avoided. But in the end everyone came together and made the experience absolutely wonderful. I could not be more thankful for the way everything ending up! "

 Garnet A. - 01/30/2018

" The veterinarian and staff were first-rate. Thank you! "

 Charlie E. - 01/27/2018

" Everything and everyone was great. Thank you so much. The only thing I would change or add is provide poop pickup bags for us for when our dogs poop out front. I know you guys say you have a service to pick it up but I personally feel like if my dog did it, I should clean it up. I appreciate you guys offering to do it but I feel it is my obligation. So that's it, just poop bags :) "

 Roxy C. - 01/26/2018

" Everything always goes amazing here. Thank you. "

 Brutus M. - 01/25/2018

" Just more personable, We have never had the puppy care or treatment. We have only been in to put our 3 elderly dogs to sleep. Its nice that we can get well care provided also. When our 3 elderly dogs passed, the techs and doctor were awesome in softening the heartache we endured. The cremation package and paw print was very comforting. Knowing our family is together was heartning, love this service. "

 Izabel I. - 01/19/2018

" I am very confident of all of your staff to only provide the utmost best treatment for my pups. I am so happy with the service. My dogs mean so much to me and I only want the best for them. Since my first visit as an emergency patient, I only bring my pups to this office. I love the hours you all keep. I have had numerous non emergency appointments for my own reassurance of the health of my pets. Not only have I seen the staff while caring for other pet emergencies, I have seen the love and compassion they show. They sincerely love all the animals. The follow-up calls from your staff are very appreciated and they don't rush to get off the phone but want to ensure I am comfortable and understand. Thanks to all of you. Keep up the good work and keep hiring people that really care for our pets. "

 Bytor G. - 01/04/2018

" 1st Pet Vet took great care of our dog when he needed surgery. They explained the process so we knew what to expect. To improve, it would be beneficial to provide updates (maybe by text) when the times are longer than expected. "

 Gracie Y. - 10/20/2017

They did this while being both professional and fully present to me and my dog. They were caring and attentive and gave my dog such loving attention that she reacted as if she was on a play date rather than undergoing serious medical tests! "
