Love this place!!! I have taken all of my animals here for years and I especially love Dr Hackett. The staff is always very friendly and the prices are reasonable.
No thank you. These people are exceptionally rude. Never again. I'd rather pay the money that I'd be "saving" to have an enjoyable experience. Not even that inexpensive.
We have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about Stage Rd. Vets & Staff! We have been to several other local vets and this is hands down the BEST! Caring staff and excellent care is what our 2 cats and 2 dogs have gotten. All of our pets are rescues & had health issues, heartworm, dental disease, etc.. Both are now happy, healthy pets! When our pets need checkups or surgery the pricing is upfront & clear...no added expenses. They check on our pets personally and even kept our kitty an extra day when it was best for her...so they REALLY CARE about pets and their families. The Dr. even took time to sit with me and go over all my post-op question for our barely 5lb senior bichon-poo. You won't find fancy frills, but all of my friends with "boutique" dogs bring them here...as well as my friends with farm dogs. We drive 30min. to get affordable, quality health care for our pets and it's well worth it!
Will never come back! – Thought this was a good vet but was charged for services that were not necessary and was then told that I would not get my dog till the bill was paid. I know many people who leave there with outstanding balances, but for some reason I was not treated with that same respect. I had every intention of coming back but I guess that did not matter. They are getting too big to care and I would never leave my dogs in their hands EVER again. Horrible horrible people.
Rude Rude Rude – I have taken my dogs to this hospital many times in the past few years because their prices for shots are reasonable. The staff had never been overly personable but thats fine, the prices were worth the unpleasant personnel. However they went too far this time, they were disrespectful and when walking in didn't even know we had an appointment, even though they were doing a serious treatment. When I called later in the day I found out that they had not even done the treatment yet. I live 45 min away and needed to pick her up by the end of the work day and they had not even done the treatment yet. They were supposed to monitor the dog during the day but if the treatment isn't even done until the afternoon then I am not sure how they were going to monitor her if I was returning in just a few hours. They obviously just wanted to be able to charge what they want and do whatever job they wanted to do. That doesn't work for me especially given the situation I am in. I was then told that I would not find anywhere else to do the treatment for the same price (which I did), so they basically try to charge a very low price so that people continue to come back for their prices. Thats what they are...CHEAP! Cheap prices and cheap services. If you truly care about your animal I would not advise going here. You wouldn't find a cheap doctor for your children and I hope you wouldn't for your pet either. I will no longer give them my business and I hope you don't either.
Wonderful – Wilson found us! When Wilson came to us his previous Momm and Dad had not taken very good care of him. we took him to Stage Rd for a check up just to make sure. We found out he had adult and baby heartworms as well as intestinal worms. Wilson endured the intensive heartworm treatments like a champ. We are new doggie parents and the staff didn't flinch when I freaked out having to leave him. I was able to call and go visit him. He seemed safe and happy. The staff knows Wilson by name and treats him as if he were their own baby. I'm so glad that they are so knowledgeable and have been there to guide me, as well as comfort me through this entire process. Wilson is a happy heathy boy now thanks to Stage Rd Animal Hospital.
Okay for shots... do NOT use them for emergency or problems – I have always used Stage Road for basic yearly shots for my animals b/c of cost. HOWEVER, I do not use them for emergencies or any problems. A few years ago my cat was having problems (weight loss, vomiting) and I was told by Stage road that " we can not figure out what is wrong with him without cutting him open."
I took my cat to a specialist in Cary (Dr. Monce who I HIGHLY recommend) who was VERY reasonable with treatment and cost. He did some tests and determined the issue. Without "cutting him open."
* My dog 3 weeks ago was bleeding from his rectum. Took him to my specialist vet and determined that it was ecoli poison and gave him meds. Cost us $150. Our dog was fine 24 hours later. My aunt and uncle took their dog to stage road with the same problem recently. They were told that they had 2 options.. put her to sleep or take her to NCSU - which would cost $1000 (they did not have this. They opted to put her down and they did. This vet should have admitted that they had no clue what was wrong with the dog and told them to get a second opinion from a normal vet's office. Instead this 6 year old dog was put down as they were told she had liver issues. Quacks. Do not use them for anything other than shots.
Absolutely awesome animal hospital – I was recently referred to this animal hospital by a close friend. After being nickel and dimed for every visit at Banfield, I felt that their wellness plans did not save me any money because they only found other things to charge me for. I brought my dog to Stage Road animal hospital for what I thought was a broken leg/dislocated hip. Dr. Hackett examined my great dane and knew exactly what was wrong with her. She did an xray to confirm her diagnosis. Unfortunately my dog had bone cancer and there was nothing that they could do for her because the cancer had already spread. Dr. Hackett was so caring and told me truthfully that I had to make a difficult decision within the next few weeks because the cancer will spread fast. I took her home that day and I was able to spend 2 additional weeks with my sweet girl, Dixie. I brought her back to Stage Road this past week so that she could make her journey to the "Rainbow Bridge." The staff was so good to me! I would recommend this hospital to anyone. Absolutely wonderful people that truly care about your pet.
Attentive & Caring – I have been to the hospital about 6 times for my puppy's shots and physicals and I have been satisfied with every outcome of each visit. Dr. Mendoza is not much of a conversationalist but I can tell she is a die hard animal lover and treats my puppy like her own. the assistants are very nice and the front desk girls are pretty sharp. The hospital is pretty clean although I did see urine on the ground one day...well it is an "Animal "Hospital. The costs are pretty good. I thought owning a new puppy would cost me an arm and a leg, but going to "Old Stage" has proved me wrong. I would take my pet there again and again, but hopefully only for well visits ;)
Great place - I wouldn't go anywhere else! – Let me start by saying that my dog is basically like my child. I adopted him from a shelter about a year ago and I am extremely protective of him because he was pretty sick when I got him (underweight, 2 types of intestinal worms, heartworms).
I drive almost 20 minutes to bring him to Stage Road, even though I have 2 other vets within 5 minutes of my house. They are the absolute best. We have seen both Dr. Mendoza and Dr. Hackett and they are fantastic with him and you can tell they really care about the animals. When my dog got sick while getting his intensive heartworm treatment, Dr. Hackett called me personally to let me know what was going on and to suggest options for his treatment. When I brought him back in 6 months later for his boosters, she remembered my dog and checked on him very carefully.
Even though it is usually packed, I have never waited for more than about 10 minutes, which isn't too bad in my opinion. All the ladies that staff the front desk are very nice, too, and have been great about answering my tons of questions that I always have!
There are some not-so-great vets in this area (Harnett County) - but I am a hardcore worrier, so if I feel this great about bringing my dog here then I recommend it to anyone!
