I have been taking my pets to Village Animal Clinic for 20 years. Dr. Reiter has been wonderful. Recenly I have seen Dr. Goldhammer. She is so nice and really takes time with my pets. All the staff is fantastic and they always have treats for my dogs. I can get in to see my vet on a very short notice- I am never put off because they are too busy to see my dogs. Everyone there really cares about pets. I never feel rushed or "processed" like in some large hospitals. Last month my cat was so sick with a liver infection. Dr. Goldhammer took extra time to explain his treatment and then showed me what to do at home to care for him. She called almost every day to check on us- he made a complete recovery. I am so grateful that they are my vets!!!
Wonderful Veterinarians – I am sorry the previous reviewer had a bad experience with Dr Goldhammer especially since I had such a positive experience with her.
I met Dr Goldhammer under the worst circumstances. My 16 year old dog Scruffy was ill and took a serious turn for the worse overnight. Unfortunately, my regular vet was out of town, so I was forced to turn to a stranger in a moment of deep sadness and despair. Thank goodness for Dr Goldhammer.
Upon arriving at the clinic, I was immediately taken to an examination room. Dr Goldhammer came in within minutes of my arrival. She was professional, yet friendly, and very sympathetic to my situation. After examining Scruffy, she confirmed my worst fears that Scruffy was in the process of dying and probably would not survive the night. Dr Goldhammer gave me my options, her recommendations, then left me alone to decide what was best for Scruffy.
Based on the information Dr Goldhammer provided, my choice was obvious. Once made, she assured me I made the right decision then reviewed the procedure with me step by step. She asked if I had any questions before beginning the procedure and, as I was visibly upset, assured me a second time that I made the right decision.
After Scruffy was gone, Dr Goldhammer told me to take as much time as I needed to say good bye. A few days later I received a sympathy card from both Dr Goldhammer and Dr Reiter. The card was unexpected and very much appreciated.
I have since adopted another dog who is a regular patient at Village Animal Clinic. Dr Goldhammer and Dr Reiter, as well as the support staff, are wonderful. They are dedicated, compassionate veterinarians who also work with local rescue organizations to provide care to rescue dogs who might otherwise go without care.
Kudos to Village Animal Clinic for all they do to keeps us and our pets happy and healthy!
Awful Vets Office... complete Liar!! – DO NOT GO HERE!! My dog became sick recently with allergies to something in the grass, I took her to Village Animal Clinic and at first things seemed good, they fit me in that day last minute, the front desk staff seemed friendly...then enters the vet and not only was she unfriendly, but I'm paying for an exam she barely did, she just takes my word that it seems like allergies and prescribes Clavamox and a steroid shot...not warning me that the steroid can commonly have a bad reaction giving me the option to just try Clavamox first...my dog ended up being allergic to the steroid and it caused her to go DEAF!!! Among other random side effects like puss in her ears, her skin blowing up in rashes everywhere, lameness in her back legs and more!!
To top it off, and please READ THIS, ITS IMPORTANT...I told her at the end of our visit my dog's Mother had a light heart murmur which she then ended up in heart failure...and asked if when she listened to my dogs heart 5 or 10 minutes ago if she heard anything...her reply..."Oh yeah, she does have a light heart murmur, but its not bad yet"....I immediately felt she was lying by the way she said it, like she didn't want to get caught not catching something so just say yeah she's got one....I took her to another vet today and sure enough...I had the vet check her heart twice.....NO MURMUR!!!! What kind of shady vet just lies rather than recheck and listen??? My dog was treated like cattle, the attitude here was terrible and I can not say enough that you should not bring your animal here!!
I took my dog to Four-Legged Friends because of their amazing reviews and sure enough I was very pleased at how loving and sweet the vet was to my dog.
