 Winston - 11/13/2019

" Everyone was very understanding when my poor little doggie was terrified. The vet and the tech discussed sedation options for his next visit, so that he isn't as stressed. I really appreciate the concern that everyone had for him, and wanting to ensure that he was as comfortable as possible. "

 Marley - 10/26/2019

" This was our first visit and I was so impressed by all the little extras. We were moved into a room immediately upon arrival which is so nice for a pet that is nervous. The staff was very accommodating and professional and the entire facility was spotless. I also appreciated the easy in room check out process so I didn’t have to control my dog and pay out front at the desk. I highly recommend 1st Pet and will definitely come back for all our pet needs. "

 Sarah - 10/25/2019

The front desk people are always pleasant and attentive as well. Thank you all for what you do day in and day out. "

 Mocha - 10/12/2019

" The wait to get into therapy is just too long. My dog is crying out in pain and I have to wait for 1 week before they have an opening for her laser therapy. As you are or should be aware of, the sooner you can start therapy the better chance of a good outcome. "

 Puppy - 10/10/2019

 Butkus - 10/02/2019

" Steak and eggs. For Butkus of course. I think you all have it down . Excellent Vetenariians and staff! Dr. Venerable has done surgeries on my dogs with excellent results. She bonds with the dogs very well. Passionate towards her work. . Dr. Lundt works at night during the emergency shifts. I ran my dogs down to him in the middle of the night which the staff immediately went to work. He is great at triage. Your dog is serious it goes to the front of the line. The front desk has always been very friendly and love on my dogs. I'm divorced and my kids are grown and gone. My dogs are more important to me more than ever. Thank you so much for taking care of them. He actually can't wait to come there. He will do anything for a treat. They took care of Ruby who is an aggressive Pit Bull to strangers sometimes. They sedated her and got all procedures done including nail trimming.They have treated me so nice during a hard time in my life. I would not go anywhere else. Thank you! "

I am following Doctors orders and am seeing positive results. I can't think of anything you all could have done differently. "

Each member of staff that had any interaction from the moment of entering to the moment of leaving was positive.

 Sophie - 08/13/2019

" The technician was fantastic with our dogs, so friendly and knew how to handle them. The dr was wonderful, very informative and friendly with our pups. The only criticism I have would be with checking out. It felt like we waited long to check out and pay the bill than the exam. The wait was TOO long and should have been a lot quicker. "

" I really loved how much they cared about helping our dog feel comfortable. She had been sick for some time and had a lot of unpleasant experiences at the vet the past few weeks, but the staff here always tried to cheer her up, give her lots of belly rubs, attention, and treats!

My furbabies are very comfortable here! "

 Sarah - 06/06/2019

" As always the care given to Sarah and Cocolola by the technicians and DR. Caruso was excellent! I would like to give a special thanks to Anna from the front desk area as for some reason my account was merged with my Father’s and I no longer appeared in the system. Anna who is familiar with the fact I own Cocolola and my father owns Sarah for whom I have authorization to handle all Sarah’s medical decisions assured me that she would have this merging issue corrected and I again will have my own separate account for my dog. I am pleased that no medical information for my pets was lost which was a true relief... what I love about 1st Pet North Valley is whenever there is a misunderstanding or technical glitch they get right on it to ensure all information within their system is correct!! It just shows that each department goes above and beyond delivering quality care and service. Thank you. Sincerely Connie Wright "

 Happy - 05/29/2019

 Bear - 05/25/2019

" we were valued clients and it was shown very well that this was true. "

 Harrison - 05/23/2019

" Dr Kirkhope has gone out of his way to ensure that our dog Harry is recovering from two surgeries performed at 1st Pet north as a result of a dog fight. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a caring DVM! "

 Izabelle - 05/22/2019

" Very quick and very thorough. "

 Chevy - 05/22/2019

" Very friendly and explained what was happening. "

 Annie - 05/21/2019

" The vet tech was very thorough and took her time to explain all the side effects five the various shots and what the expectations were. That was very important for me once we got home. I felt that she took her time and paid attention to little Annie and to details. Dr. Caruth so is always very pleasant and very attentive to our little puppy. Thank you very much for being so supportive! "

 Tippy - 05/15/2019

" This was our second visit and everything was as good as it could have been. The compassion and concern were comforting. Thank you. "

 Kimo - 05/11/2019

" I am so happy that Dr Venable is here...my cranky old man thinks she is the best. "

 Cash - 05/09/2019

" I have been to other vets in the valley who offer emergency care in addition to regularly-scheduled appointments. In my case, I prepaid for what I thought was going to be an emergency. As it turned out, my pet required minimal services at a fraction of the cost of an emergency. I am convinced that everyone at 1st Pet Vet (North Valley) not only loves animals, but they truly take care to not over-charge. This makes my 3rd visit in a row where I could have easily spent double or triple the fees, were it not for there vets looking out for me. "

 Gracie - 05/07/2019

" Love 1st Pet. "

 Coco - 05/07/2019

" My visits are ALWAYS excellent, yet today’s was kinda sad as DR. Caruso informed me she will be moving to another state ��, and my other veterinarian DR. Vernon will not be returning. I believe 1st Pet is losing two great talents and true assets to the clinics team !! Their clear and unmistakable concern and compassion for each animals health and well-being along with the utmost sincerity when dealing with the pets owners is and was remarkable !!! What I really loved was neither would push an owner towards test just to make a buck, as they were not about high cost care but old fashioned quality care. They both will be missed greatly. Sincere thanks , Connie Wright "

 Sunny - 05/02/2019

" A cold laser therapy massage on my back would make it a whole lot better.....lol....just kidding... but it would. haha Great service and staff is awesome. Luckily, I already have the best therapist that my dog loves and she seems to really like him as well :) "

 Buddy - 05/02/2019

" Technicians we’re very careful and accommodating while trimming my, ‘ not so helpful’ cat’s nails. I was very pleased. Doc V is very knowledgeable and kind. "

 Sunny - 05/02/2019

" Nothing comes to mind. You all are great! "

 Rose - 05/02/2019

" We enjoy our pet being greeted, by name, and shown to a room as soon as we walk into the lobby. Very friendly and accommodating front desk staff. "

 Willie - 05/01/2019

" Dr Venable was outstanding and answered all our questions "

 Alice - 04/28/2019

" In a way, I am disappointed. I like to complain and this visit did not allow me one iota of opportunity to complain. Everything was done to an outstanding level. Which brings me to a question... When you are performing at a perfect level, how do you improve upon perfection? Keep up the great work! "

 Jodee - 04/26/2019

" Our visit was awesome. I like that Dr. Venable talked to me the whole way through the exam and explained everything. I highly recommend her and will! "

 Loaf - 04/25/2019

 Mc Duffy - 04/18/2019

" Everything went very very well. We are very pleased with the medical help our dog is getting. "

 Bali - 04/18/2019

" I felt the doctor had genuine concern for my fur baby, he wasn't 'just doing his job and moving to the next patient'. "

 Bella - 04/17/2019

" Nikki is wonderful as always "

 Hailey - 04/13/2019

" Thank you for your kindness and compassion as we made the heart breaking decision for our cat Haley. "

 Sarah - 04/13/2019

" My answers have always been excellent because each and every visit and each and every doctor as well as any staff member that my pets and I have encountered have never failed to give us anything less than excellent. And may I add my pets are high maintenance with numerous medical issues so they have frequent visits which is another reason why I chose 1st Pet North Valley. The excellent care and peace of mind knowing anytime day or night I can get my pets the medical care they need . Having 1st pet as my primary care all my pets records are all on site too. "

 Oliver - 04/06/2019

" Our mini doxie has a immune issue that affects his nails causing them to grow inward curling into his paw pads. The tech did a great job trimming the nails as not to hurt/cut the pads. "

 Coco - 04/06/2019

" It’s amazing how great every Doctor interacts with my dogs, as my main veterinarian is out on maternity leave and my dogs have many ongoing medical issues. DR. Caruso has been the veterinarian that has stepped in as the go to and she is great also. Could not speak more highly of the 1st Pet facility at North Phoenix. Can not thank them enough for the care they all give my fur babies and how well they treat me. Outstanding!!! Thank you. Sincerely Connie, Bubba��, Sarah and Cocolola Wright "

 Rio Bravo - 04/04/2019

 Luna - 03/27/2019

" Coffee would have been awesome. I had a long day and I started feeling sleepy. Please add some Coffee. "

 Peanut - 03/26/2019

" I really liked that the Dr. got on the floor to say hi, and gave her a little treat before looking at her. That helped her feel comfortable. The facility was so nice and smelled clean, that it was hard to believe it was a pet facility! "

 Caruso - 03/26/2019

" love new location "

 Ruby - 03/21/2019

" The music. Honestly, it's basically very quiet and then you have this soft, gentle music. It feels like you're in a funeral home. I don't meant to insult anyone, but you asked. Maybe a way to clean up if you're dog leaves a sample of something not asked for. But overall, really great. Totally unlike any other vet visit I've ever had. A nice, clean bright room with windows. Ruby loves to look out the window and it helped to keep her occupied. "

 Shadow - 03/21/2019

" Absolutely love you guys. I can't think of any place better to bring my fur babies "

 Taz - 03/20/2019

" It was one of the hardest and worst days of my life. Finding out my little one had cancer and then having to make the decision. Dr Kung was incredibly compassionate and understanding as well as thorough in explaining things. The rest of the staff were also very kind and helpful during such a difficult time. "

 Stormy - 03/19/2019

He’s doing better and I’ll continue to bring him back, purely for the kind, friendly staff and then treating him with respect! I should add because of injury, we’ve been seen for 2 weeks now and their professionalism and care have not changed one bit! "

She gave us all of our options and we were able to determine what was the best treatment plan for Summer. The discharge papers were thorough and reviewed everything we had talked about. I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Venable and I am very optimistic that Summer will be able to improve under her watchful eye. thank you "

 Jimmy - 02/02/2019

" Your staff took the time to listen to our concerns about our dog. He and his well being are of the most importance to us and they all took the time to listen to our concerns. Jimmy is 13 and while I realize that he has some aging ailments we are most interested in that he is not in pain or suffering any. Your staff showed us the concern that we have not received from previous Vets. Your practice is a definite keeper. My son also uses your services for his four big dogs. Kudos!!! "

 Ubie - 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 - 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 - 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 - 11/27/2018

" Brooke was awesome! "

 Buster - 11/27/2018

" My husband was very pleased with the whole experience! Thank you for taking care of our boy! "

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

 Rocco - 11/20/2018

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

 Ivy - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 11/09/2018

 Anya - 11/02/2018

" I love this place!!! "

 Scooby - 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 - 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 - 10/30/2018

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

 Sami - 10/29/2018

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

 Coco - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 !!! "

 Mojo - 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 - 10/11/2018

" The staff was so friendly and I really enjoyed our experience "

 Dipsy - 10/11/2018

 Bella - 10/05/2018

" Nikki is fantastic! "

 Sarah - 10/04/2018

" All my visits have gone very well, great �� job!! "

 Ziggy - 10/03/2018

 Shelby - 09/11/2018

 Gracie - 09/09/2018

" Thank you for your concern about me as well as my pet. When our four legged family members are ill, it's as stressful for us as well as them, and I'm grateful for your reconsideration. "

 Bella - 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 - 09/03/2018

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

 Sarah - 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 - 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 - 08/31/2018

" Absolute competence and kindness! "

 Lotte - 08/29/2018

 Nauroth - 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 - 08/17/2018

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

 Rose - 08/16/2018

 Etta - 08/15/2018

" You guys are great. "

 Halo - 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 - 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 - 08/08/2018

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

 Dixie - 08/08/2018


 Ellie - 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 - 07/28/2018

" 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 - 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 - 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 - 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. "

" 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 - 06/16/2018

 Arrow - 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.

 Kahlua - 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. "

 Frieda - 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 - 05/11/2018

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

 Wilson - 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 - 04/28/2018

 Princess - 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 - 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 - 04/17/2018

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

 Tessa - 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 - 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 - 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. "

 Lola - 02/23/2018

" N/A, you guys are great! "

 Meah - 02/21/2018

 Shiloh - 02/08/2018

" Doctor spent time trying to make my dog feel comfortable. Shiloh suffers from anxiety at the vet and great efforts were made to make both of us at ease! "

 Jackson - 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 - 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 - 01/30/2018

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

 Charlie - 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 - 01/26/2018

" Everything always goes amazing here. Thank you. "

 Brutus - 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. "

 Lilly - 01/23/2018

" My dog always nervous at vet but they really help to make it a friendly experience "

 Zena - 01/20/2018

" Rich was very helpfull and considerate. I appriciate how caring he was. The lady Veternarian was exellent also. I can't remember her name at the moment, but I would definately bring any of my pets here again for care. Thanks to everyone who helped us there. Everyone was wonderful! "

 Izabel - 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 - 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. "

 Celie - 11/16/2017

" When a pet is being seen for a recheck exam (follow up) to see how they are progressing with the prescribed treatment, the cost of the exam should be significantly less (like half price) rather than just $10.00 less. "

 Gracie - 10/20/2017

" I arrived with serious health concerns for my pet, and every person I spoke with responded by careful listening, asking pertinent questions, and addressing every concern. 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! "

 Callie - 10/12/2017
