Not a good experience – As I read all of these reviews to select a vet as we are new to town, thought we couldn't miss with selecting this vet. Our experience was SO very different than what is written here and the references to a female Dr. Shaffer. We had a male Dr. Shaffer and found him to be impatient, more concerned about his "professional" opinion than listening to what was going on with our dog; and not aggressive in treating a very serious condition. We initially thought a one-vet practice would provide us with personal care. The real consequence was the unwillingness or inability to deal with a serious condition quickly and to not carefully or thoroughly review blood chemistry results. After 3 1/2 weeks of care that included five visits in this time, and two misdiagnosis, our dog has died. When I came in to get our file for a second opinion, I was met with a rude receptionist and a vet who seemed insulted that we would do this. His ego was clearly more important than the care of our dog. The second vet was more concerned about the dog; immediately sent us up to CSU, but by this time, it was too late. I would not go to this vet if your animal has a serious illness or you need aggressive action.
Love This Place – B and I love this place! We take all of our kitties here. Staff & Vet have always been super nice and knowledgeable. Comforting to know they actually care about our babies. Coffee & tea for the pet owners and they even sent us a thank you card... great pet & owner care!
Very caring and nice! – I've brought my dog in to be seen by both veterinarians, and they are both awesome! You can tell how much they like animals. The office staff is great too. The doctors are so caring and helpful. Thank you for taking such good care of Chevy!
Thank you! – Thank you Dr. Shaffer for a recent emergency visit for my toy poodle! She was gentle and very thorough, and the staff there - well, I couldn't ask for better! Good job, guys!!
High Level of Care – The constant, high level of care I've received from Longmont Small Animal Hospital has been nothing sort of astounding and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hospital to anyone. The best thing I can say is that they took one of my dog-owner nightmares in vet visits and have turned a vet visit into something both Emma and I look forward to!
Thank you! – Thanks to everyone for the health care and friendly environment you have provided for my dog over the years. Your support and heart felt caring during my dog recent health crisis is deeply appreciated. My dog pulled through and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Longmont Small Animal Hospital for many more years.
I love this hospital. I would give them as many stars as I can give because they are so nice and thoughtful throughout the whole process. I was freaking out but they ease me through it. I am thankful you help my little ones. Thank you a million times.
Wonderful Help!! – My uncle said I should write you a review to thank you for helping me with my hurt leg. I was really scared and you made me feel better and took really good care of me. I know I was sort of mean and unhappy sometimes and I am really sorry. I'll give you extra hugs after I come in for my check ups. Thank you too for taking care of my uncle and aunt. They really felt good having you taking care of me.
Favorite clinic! – If there was 10 stars to give, this clinic would receive them. If you want to take your pet to a caring animal clinic, this is it! I have been taking my dog here for about a little over a year .
Friendly, Professional, and Highly Recommended – The staff here is friendly, professional, and I would recommend them to everyone. They swiftly bandaged my cats leg all up, gave her some antibiotics, and she's happy again. I'm so glad I came here. Thank-you guys!
