The staff was wonderful. Everybody was friendly, attentive and helpful and took the time to explain every option possible. I got to stay with my pet the entire visit, Even during ultrasound and Urinalysis. They explained the possible concerns, diagnosis options and treatment options, and were transparent about pricing before I arrived and during each step when I asked. Amazing staff!!
Honestly, it’s never a good experience to go to an emergency vet because your pet is sick but I can easily say this has been the best of such experiences. The staff was kind, thorough, and efficient. When we went in, it was the end of most of their shifts but they were still great. They even helped us get a student discount that we didn’t know that they had. Without prompting, they gave us multiple options for testing depending on what was more essential/likely and cost without pressuring us one way or another. I’ve already verbally told multiple of my friends to go here if they ever have a need. They were super gentle with my cat. They answered all of my questions, even the ones the might be redundant, without making me feel rushed or silly. Overall, I would highly recommend this place!
Despite the stressful nature of why we stopped in for our visit, the team at VEG was so incredibly welcoming from the front desk and beyond. Every person we encountered was supportive and friendly. The Vet was quick to come in and make an evaluation. He kept me educated through the process and I left feeling confident that we could handle the rest of our pups care from home. All of the staff that came in for vitals signs and to discharge us home were also incredibly friendly and supportive. This team gets an A+ in every category. Thank you VEG for taking care of my pup!
Cannot say enough positive things about them. From the techs, nurses and vet, everyone was extremely nice, and knowledgeable. I could tell that they loved animals and their jobs. They had the skills, supplies and equipment to take care of my beasts. They also had a challenging patient and I was truly impressed with their patience and compassion for the injured animal.
Had the best possible experience bringing our sweet dog here last night. Dr. Roberts and all the vet techs and staff were amazing with her. Compassionate, thorough, attentive, professional, and efficient. Would highly recommend their emergency vet services.
