I was referred to this clinic by a friend and OMG they are great!!!! My cat was suffering from asthma. I brought him to Banfield and they wouldn't help because I didn't have a lot of money . Even after spending $500.00 with them. When I got to Bayview everyone was so friendly. Dr. Laurie Phillips was just they sweetest. They didn't look down on me for having very very little money. I didn't know what else to do, my cat was suffering. She gave him x-rays and treated him like an angle. He's feeling better now. This will be my new vet. Money isn't always everything. It's not like I expect things for free or even low cost it's just these attacks happened so close together I couldn't pay anymore until my next pay check and Jacob my cat couldn't wait that long. Thank you Thank you Dr. Phillips I will forever appreciate you!!!
I treat my dog like my son, who has been in my life for ten years now. Trust me when I say, I am extremely critical when it comes to finding a great vet. I struck gold when a friend recommended Bayview Animal Clinic over four years ago, and met Dr. Rudd Nelson and the team of doctors and staff. After one conversation with him, it was evident that he had a genuine concern and a true vested interest in my golden retriever. If you are looking for a new vet, or want to try another location, do yourself a favor and give them a try…you will not be disappointed.
Took my cat here on a Saturday because she was throwing up and not feeling well. My usual vet Dr. Smith went out of town so the owner Dr. Nelson kept her for 72 hours. I would call for updates and she was either not eating and still sickly or eating and feeling better (get your story straight). I called on Monday and they told me she was better and to pick her up. When I got there they handed me an 800.00 bill and my cat in her carrier. When I got her home I was shocked to see how ill my cat was, she was actually worse then when I took her in but I figured maybe she was just in shock.
After a few hours she just got worse so I called their emergency after hours number which they claim they'll actually meet you up at their offices. I started calling at 10:45pm and never got a return call. I took her to Lauderdale Vet Specialist and they did an X-Ray and found an obstruction. They needed to do surgery but first had to give her transfusions and try to stabilize her because she was so ill. Luckily they operated the next day and saved her life but this cost me over 5000.00 dollars. I totally put the blame on Dr. Nelson.
I like Dr. Smith and if he was to ever change offices I would follow him but I can't continue to put money in Dr. Nelson's pocket since he is the owner.
We tried before some vets help…
We tried before some vets help, including a surgery that cost us ridiculous much, until we find this Bayview Animal Hospital. Everybody there helped us as much as our dog was their own. Prices are extremely decent, their availability is legendary. Our boxer Spartacus had a lot of health problems and he was seen by Dr.Brunz and as well by the others. They communicated between them so they know the problems at any time. They also walked me through the painful process to get ready and accept when he died and helped even with the cremation. I can not stop thank them enough.I wanted to write this earlier, but I couldn't because of my tiers.
I highly recommend this place to all my friends and acquaintances.
This place is awesome! They are so kind and caring, unlike other vets that just seem to want to take your money. Bayview truly cares for the animals and their owners. One of my animals was extremely ill. Bayview went above and beyond on their medical care for him without charging me fortune, along with the continuous follow up calls done by this office. I am beyond impressed with their entire staff. My animals have been seen by all the vets at the clinic and all of them are top notch. Although I secretly do have a favorite, Dr. Smith. I have recently switched all my pets from another vet to Bayview.
The ONLY place that I would trust my three going to!! Dr. Nelson and the entire staff are above and beyond amazing!! After a very tramatic time at Imperial Point I came here and have not regretted it once. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! If you love your pets then you should let them mett Dr. Nelson!
Very Unimpressed. – Very very unimpressed. Will not return.
I wouldn't go anywhere else! – I just have to say that Bayview is one of the friendliest places in Fort Lauderdale. After I moved here from Michigan, my friend recommended I come here for my 2 dogs and I am so glad I did! All of the staff is always happy to see me and my dogs, and Dr. Smith and Dr. Nelson not only explain everything to me, but are super great with my dogs. I've had to come in on 3 emergencies and Dr. Smith has met me within 15-20 minutes every time. I feel fortunate to have found a vet that I can trust and rely on 24/7!
Five Stars for My New Vet – I brought my pug, Snapps, here recently for a skin infection on his face, growth removal and dental and was very nervous about the procedure because the growth was very close to my dog's eye. Dr. Smith and staff were so kind and patient and gentle with my pet. His eyes, face and teeth look beautiful. Looking at him, you can't even tell which eye had the growth. And guess what, he only charged me for the dental package and the prescriptions I needed to take home. So incredibly fair about the price, which is very hard to find in pet care.
As for the emergency call number, my brother who has never been there had a scare this weekend with his dog being sick and they talked him through his symptoms, determined it wasn't an emergency but told him how to care for him over the phone and his dog's doing so much better.
Anyone with a pet in the Fort Lauderdale area has got to give this place a try.
