I was referred to CAH for a second opinion on my 10 y/o Springer Spaniel Molly’s need for orthopedic surgery. Molly’s surgery was successfully completed by Dr. Mike Vitucci and his excellent team and Molly spent 2 weeks at the clinic for post op care. She got the best care possible and was treated like family. She is doing wonderful! She no longer walks on 3 legs in pain. They are a top notch clinic with all the latest technology and strive to be the best and in my opinion have far exceeded the level of excellent care! I would highly recommend CAH for all your vet needs, whether it be routine shots or complicated orthopedic surgery! You won’t regret it or be disappointed. Molly loves to visit with all the staff each time she goes in for follow up care and wags her tail with enthusiasm! I think her opinion says it best!
Great experience! Fantastic Results! Highly Recommend! – My best friend and companion animal (Norton) was diagnosed with ACL tears in both of his hind legs. After doing much research on-line and reading un-biased reviews, I chose County Animal Hospital and Dr. Mike Vitucci. He treated my baby dog and best friend (Norton), like he would treat his own companion animal. Both Norton and I were treated with much kindness and respect. Dr. Mike performed surgery on Norton's left hind leg and Norton recuperated with Dr. Mike and his excellent and caring staff. After nine weeks, Dr. MIke performed surgery on Norton's right hind leg. Again, Norton recuperated for a period of time under the care and direction of Dr. Mike and his staff. During his hospitilizations, I was allowed to visit with Norton anytime during working hours. I always found Norton to be well-cared for, happy, and in a clean and loving environment. I was allowed to bring Norton's favorite toys which I found with him at every visit. Norton has recuperated from these surgeries and is now up and running around, happy and healthy. In fact, under Dr. Mike's care, Norton has thrived. He is a much happier and healthier dog. I highly recommend Dr. Mike Vitucci and his staff for all of your pet's needs. Norton and I both feel that we have found a new home away from home for Norton and a doctor that truly cares about us!
ACL repair=extremely happy – I was refered to County Animal Hospital because my dog ruptured her cruciate. I was welcomed into the office by their wonderful staff at the front desk. Dr. Vitucci took the time to do a full exam on my do and explained to me everything he was doing and why he was doing it. He took the time to educate me on what this condition is and what would be the best surgery for my her. He took the time and explained all of the different types of procedure to fix my dogs leg, which really seemed like he cared a lot. After educating me on everything, he helped me make a decision on which procedure was the best for my pet. I was reading the other reviews on Dr. Vitucci on-line and a previous person had put that he was pushy but i never got the impression from him, I only ever got the feeling that he wanted to help my pet to be pain free. I felt like overall the staff at County Animal Hospital was very nice and cared for the animals.
Dr Michael Vitucci - PUSHY!!!! Car Salesman Attitude – Michael P. Vitucci MS, DVM has a characteristic of a used salesman. He cares more about his pocketbook then his actual patients. Prime example, our dog had torn his ACL and needed surgery. Dr Michael Vitucci was trying to push this surgery the very next day. My gut told me something wasn't right and on that same day, I took my dog to be looked at by another Veterinary Facility. Well my gut feeling was right. We should of taken care of his infection first before actually doing the surgery. If we had gone with the surgery the next day, we would of been looking at his new implant being infected for his torn ACL by this infection. We also did our research on Dr Michael Vitucci he isn't Board Certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Yes he may have done surgeries before but If I am going to invest several of thousand of dollars into my dog, then that Vet better be certified and should know what he is doing. If you truly care for your pets as much as I do, I would stay away from Dr Michael Vitucci. We also have had some friends who have run into the same problem with this Doctor. He only cares about his pocketbook and bringing in the money!!
Best decision we made! – We had taken our bassett to a different vet several times and tried different medications to resolve a weight loss issue and skin irriation. He had no progress and seemed to be getting worse. We went to the County Animal Hospital when Max was not eating at all and didn't want to move much. Right away Dr. Vitucci realized he had a serious infection and performed an emergancy surgery on Sunday. He then began to completely analyze the past history and gave us several possibilities for the weight issues. FINALLY A DOCTOR THAT CARES AS MUCH ABOUT OUR DOG AS WE DO!! We realize that there may not be a quick fix but it feels good to know you can trust that your vet is doing his best and has a defined plan.
CAH is the BEST!!! – Our cat, and, two dogs have gone there for years. Dr. Vitucci/Staff are always "very helpful", and, so compassionate with our animals!!! Our cat Jackson had a pellet removed; because, our neighbor shot him. Our dog Jersey had a tumor removed. Our dog Beans had a cyst removed, and, two knee surgeries (the latter TTA). Such great care was always given; especially, during/after the surgeries! Dr. Vitucci even gave us his cell number; the follow up care is excellent!!! If anyone has an animal needing TTA sx; then, we will be happy to speak with them! The hardest part of the TTA surgery was keeping Beans calm; but, CAH helped with that too!!! We "highly" recommend taking your animal(s) to CAH, because, they are GREAT!!!
