I had to take my dog Socio in for shots and a checkup in preperation for a trip on short notice. I was able to make the appointment the same day at bay Road Animal Clinic. I did not have to wait in the waiting room for a long time and the place was clean and did not smell like, well, a vet's office. Socio was treated well by Dr. Duggan and seemed not as scared as he was at other vet offices. The doctor took his time with my little buddy and did a thorough exam. We got our shots and when we got the bill it was much less than many of the high prices I was quoted at other places on Miami Beach we could not get appointments at in the first place. Clean modern friendly care. Socio and I say go there.
THE WORST VET EVER!!! – I brought my animals here and one got really sick. The vet basically gave up and said there was nothing he could do and that cats were desert animals and not to worry. he did a test and said my cat had something viral and there was nothing more he could do. I brought my cat elsewhere cause he was near death and I told the new vet what he said about my cat being dehydrated. He had said cats were desert animals and not too worry. The current vet was in total disbelief and said he should not have a liscene and that she has heard many negative things about him. She was also in disbelief he never gave my cat a shot to help hydrate him. After going to the second vet he instantly started to get better. I then switched vets. When the receptionist called to have the records transfered his receptionist was rude to my new vet's office and when I calmly called myself to see why that was. He himself got on the phone screaming and swearing at me. I was in total shock on how he was acting.DO NOT UE THIS VET !!!!
Rude & Arrogant Vet – Due to my current economic situation, I've had to recently use a discount vet service which comes through a local pet store once a month for my dogs shots ( rabies, etc...).
This service, however, is not permitted to sell the rabies tags, so I went by Bay Road Animal Clinic today to purchase the tags, hoping to get a glance at a possible future vet to use. When I walked in, James slid open the little window to the office and stared at me....no hello, just stared at me. I explained to him what I needed and he told me no. He then told me to take my business back to where I had gotten the shots. I said that i would take my business elsewhere, to which he smirked and said "Someone else will get your business? Yeah, that's why you go to PetCo for your shots. You're not a client here!"
Wow......I was shocked. I then went to Alton Road Animal Hospital where I was treated very well by friendly staff.
I will never go back to Bay Road Animal Clinic!
The RUDEST veterinarian ever – I called Bay Road Animal Clinic today to gather information on treatment for tapeworms for my dog. The receptionist, Lucy, gave me the info I requested and set an appt. I called back a few minutes later to ask for the exact name of the medication that would be administered, because it struck me that Lucy said my dog would be receiving a shot rather than pills (pills are more commonly used for the treatment of tapeworms). I wanted to research this type of treatment prior to the visit. Lucy put me on hold so she could ask the doctor for the name of the medication that would be administered. Instead of Lucy returning with the answer, James (the "doctor"), picked up and simply said, "Why?". I was surprised and thought perhaps he meant to answer a different line. I repeated my question and he then asked 'why' again. Before I could even answer he rattles off the name of 3 medications very quickly. When I asked if he could spell the names so I could research them, he tells me that he graduated from the University of Florida and that he doesn't have to explain himself to anyone - and that if I wanted to bring my dog in for the treatment, I should do so without asking questions. He then hung up on me.
You have to laugh at this, right? I couldn't believe the doctor spoke to me in this manner. Don't waste your time with these losers.
A vet that loves animals – When my cat got very sick 2 years ago, i first went to south beach animal hospital. they wanted 1500 dol for 3 days treatment. i couldn't afford that. i went to see dr duggan, and for 60 dol he saved my cat's life. he knew i had not a lot of money but he loves animals before anything, he's not gonna let an animal dies because he want some money like the others.
Last year, another cat got sick, i went to banfield hospital in Midtown, it cost me more than 1000 dol even though i have the insurance with them, so i went to see doctor duggan and he healed my cat for 90 dol.
This doctor is the best in miami area.
Nice caring vets take good care of my Labrador dog – I have been using Dr. Duggan for over a decade and have come to appreciate the care and service I get at Bay Road Animal Clinic. As a busy professional, my time is limited and the office takes great pains to get me in when I need to take puppy in for treatment. I like that they do most lab work right there so they can diagnose and treat in a timely manner.
Vet took the time I needed to say goodbye to my best friend. – Everyone has to say goodbye to a loved pet at one time or another. it is a hard thing to do. My vet helped me get 1 more good day from my Shepard even though he was terminally ill and it was his time. He helped to arrange to put him out of his misery quietly, painlessly, and with me in attendance. Dr. Duggan give us as long as we needed together in that room and I appreciate it.
Bay Road Animal Clinic arranged to have my Bow cremated and the remains turned over to me in a few days.
Highly suggest you use this vet if you want compassion for your pet..
Friendly Vet takes as much time with your pet and you as needed. You are not just a number at this pet clinic. – I have been taking my best friend to Dr. Duggan almost since I moved to Miami Beach from New York a few years back. I tried a few other Veternarians' here but they were a little too large/corporate sell sell sell oriented for my taste. At Bay Road Animal Clinic, Dr. Duggan sticks to the facts and helping your pet and not trying to sell you a bunch of unneeded stuff. He takes as much time as needed to answer all questions. I can even buy my flea and tick medicines online right from their website.
I suggest you use them for your pet too.
Bay Road Animal Clinic Dr. James Duggan: Clean friendly competent care at a fair price – I had to take my dog Socio in for shots and a checkup in preperation for a trip on short notice.

We got our shots and when we got the bill it was much less than many of the high prices I was quoted at other places on Miami Beach we could not get appointments at in the first place. Clean modern friendly care. Socio and I say go there.
Bad experience – I have had a very bad experience here and I would strongly advise people to not use this Bay Road Animal Clinic.
