Dr. Bodily has been a vet for over 50 years. I found him when one of my dogs was dying of liver disease. Bodily was slow and methodical, which saved my dog's life. It was a relief to speak with a man who had decades of experience. While other vet's offices recommended tests and had no experts to interpret them (one test would have stuck a needle in the sick liver and likely killed the dog); Bodily was so wise and experienced. He knew what to do, in what order. He was our guardian angel during a difficult two weeks. If you're familiar with the James Harriet vet stories (or TV series), Doc Bodily is that sort of vet!
Rude and accusatory when an animal is in need – In an emergency, I tried to bring my cat into this clinic as it was open on Saturday when no other clinics were. When I explained the problem - uncontrollable diarrhea - he asked what I was feeding her. I explained that she was fed a diet of ZD kibbles + Fancy Feast beef and chicken appetizers. He put me on hold, then came back and told me in the rudest tone "That doesn't make any sense." I assumed he was talking to someone else, but no - he was telling me that it didn't make sense to have her on those two food items at the same time. I explained that my other cat has allergies, and that the ZD is the only dry kibble we can find she's not allergic to and that she has no allergies to what is contained in the wet food. He went on to say that ZD often causes diarrhea - despite the fact my cat has been eating this food quite healthily for 3.5 years and now is totally not in control of her bowel movements. I was so taken aback at how he handled the conversation - me being totally stressed because my cat is clearly in serious pain and him implying that it's my fault for feeding her high quality food that has been signed off on by two other vets who've known my cat for years - that I hung up. When an animal is having an emergency, you help them. You do not imply the owner is trying to dupe you or has somehow maliciously caused it.
I went to Lakemont Village Veterinary hospital, received excellent service, and she's now doing fine - but no thanks to Bodily.
At Last a Profesional Veterinary – After years of poor and getting worst treatment at Rose Hill Animal Hospital in Kirkland, A Corp. owned money machine, with the youngest Dr's (?) you will ever see. The health of your pet seems to be secondary to the amount of money they can extract.
I had it, and went on a search for an Independent owned Vet, who had some gray hair, and years of experence.
It is such a pleasure to recommend this man and his clinic. After a week of no action, bloched tests at Rose Hill - my Pom was in pain from a Urnary track infection - yet Dr. Bodily solved the problem, on the first visit - then on a follow up visit showed me the test results that confirmed what he and I knew the problem to be.
My Pom hated to go to Rose Hill - had the Pom Hack, and cryed every time she went - but she loves Dr. Bodily and his staff, no Pom Hack or fear of going.
This just may be the Dr. for you!
Dr. Bodily Knows His Stuff – I've been going to Dr. Bodily since the 70's. He's like the kind "country doctor" and he's treated all my animals over the years.
He takes time to explain things in detail, will fit you in at the last minute, and he is straightforward...no whoo hoo voodoo type medicine.
loving vet – me and my family have been going here since our first dog... now we have brought a total of 10 animals there throughout the years and we love it there. they are really convenient, take walk ins, good atmosphere, good location. i wouldn't board my dog there, but its an option. the prices are average. dr bodily is a great guy and is always willing to help us out with our problems.
