“So, in short its awful, the place smells awful (and your dog will too) and if I could go back in time I would have NEVER left my best friend in such bad hands.”
“The staff was very friendly and helpful.”
“When we got our Chi I checked at least six different vet offices and they had the best pricing out of all the vets and everyone we have dealt with in the office has also treated our furry children like they are special.”
I have used this Vet before and never had any problems. I haven't had a pet in 3 years. I recently got a Chow puppy and took him there. I have to admit that Martha Stewart didn't decorate, but it was clean and did not smell. The people were all nice. the front, the assistant and the vet. Their prices are reasonable also.
Slingblade works here. Rude on the phone and rude when you come in. Place also smells REALLY bad. If you live in this area, you might as well make the journey to downtown Atlanta and find a nicer Vet's office there.
If you love your pet, heed my advice.... If you care about your beloved pet, then do not bring it to Stockbridge Veterinary Clinic. The front-end staff are very rude and heartless, they make it clear they only care about one thing, and that's how much they can tack onto your bill. The entire building is antiquated which reflects the vet's knowledge perfectly, having most recently attended school to be a veterinarian more than 20 years ago. Things change, go update your education!!! Do not trust these vets and their outdated ways. They're not thorough at all and are quick to make a diagnosis within the first few seconds of looking at your pet. They will not consider your information and insist THEY know more about YOUR pet's behavior. As for the receptionists, they don't thank you or wish your pet well. Instead, they sit there and complain about how the customer wasn't charged enough. I hope anyone who loves their pet doesn't subject them to sub par care at an inflated price.
Vets that treat wildlife are few and far between.
Although I have never met this vet, or had any dealings with him, I would just like to give a big shot-out to Dr. Waggoner for accepting and treating wildlife.
Most vets don't care about wildlife because they can't make any money off of them, but there are a few like SVH that will donate their time and resources to help the most vulnerable.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Unbelievable treatment to a longtime customer. I have used this Vet for YEARS, at least 5 years. I bring my dog, a Min Pin and our cat, before we gave him to a friend about a year ago. They have always been attentive and eager to discuss options in service and the best possible care for my pets. I was reading the reviews and thinking to myself that this could not be the same vet I use! It is time for my dog’s yearly check-up so I called to make an appointment. The lady that answered the phone seemed extremely aggravated that I was even calling. And then when I tried to tell her that my dog had some issues I wanted checked she actually told me that she didn’t know what I needed. I was trying to ask her about the cost of vaccines that my dog may need and she she continued interrupting me and saying ‘I don’t know’. I finally told her not to worry about it I would call another vet and she hung up on me! Wow, great service to a long time customer! Appreciate it!
VETS SAVE TEETH!!!! and I didn't have to pay through mine!.
We are the proud grandparents of a mixed lab dog and an orange tabby cat. The vet in Forsyth County was killing us with outrageous charge$ for routine care. We were told that each pet needed a tooth extracted and that it would be $410.00 for the dog and $430.00 for the cat!!! We checked with two other vets up here and got $450.00 each, and another came in at $440.00 each. South of Stockbridge, a phone call estimate was $350.00 base price with possible additional charges.
Then my head cleared and I remembered Stockbridge Veterinary Hospital. This was the place that I always used when we lived there years ago--my precious dog was always given excellent care, and she lived to be 15 years old (a Maltese mix). My other daughter presently uses them for her two kitties. I grabbed the phone and made an appointment. We took them in three days later, and they cleaned their teeth by laser method--neither one of them needed a tooth extracted!! Their mouths are healthy, and the total bill: anesthesia, take home antibiotics, complete exam came to...DRUM ROLL....$207.00 for both, together, period!!! If they had needed a tooth extraction, the charge would have been an additional $25.00 each. Needless to say, I was thrilled. The people there were great----even with a waiting room brim full of barking, meowing, pets waiting to be treated, they took time to answer all of my questions and never made me feel rushed. THANK YOU STOCKBRIDGE VETERINARY HOSPITAL for your careful, experienced examination of our pets, which saved them unnecessary pain and for prices that are reasonable and fair and saved me way over $600,00!!!!!
Vet has no clue what they are dong.
We have taken our cat to this vet for sometime now, for shots and an ear infection.
Over the years we keep taking him back for the infection and after $100 later each visit they have not given us anything that has helped out cats ear problems.
I would not recommend this vet to anyone as far as medical goes. As far as shots go I guess they are OK
Good Vet. My dog got sick during the few days she was boarded, but the vet was quick to acknowledge that it was the fault of their kennel. He gave treatments for free, but even though we continue to use this vet....we NEVER went back to board. I found a great lady that comes to my house twice a day while we are gone to feed, water ,and walk both dogs. A Sitter For You in Fayetteville...Patsy @ 404-708-5549.
Never had problems with this vet.
Not sure how I could have such a different experience then the rest of the people that have left comments. We have been going to this vet for the last 4 years and the staff has always been very friendly and prompt. When we got our Chi I checked at least six different vet offices and they had the best pricing out of all the vets and everyone we have dealt with in the office has also treated our furry children like they are special. I admit the office is in serious need of a facelift but again can't beat the prices and service that my animals and I get.
Lake Harbin animal hospital is a rip off, we went there for several years and they informed me that our yellow lab mix had heartworms, we didn't have the $1000 for the treatment. They did a $35 treatment that would eliminate the "baby" heartworms but would do nothing to the already "adult" heartworms and could not guarantee how long she would live, we almost considered putting her down so she would not have to suffer. The next year is when we started going to Stockbridge Animal hospital and they tested her for heartworms and it came back negative. Heartworms do not just disappear. Lake Harbin Animal hospital needs to do a better job of reading test results apparently because there is no telling how many people have spent that $1000 and the animal did not have heartworms. I guess that vets office just puts the money in their pocket.
We will continue to take our babies to Stockbridge Animal Hospital, they are GREAT!!!
$16.00 to trim a dachshund's nails? Really?.
We decided to use Stockbridge Veterinary Hospital only because the person I had gotten my puppy from had began taking him there to get his puppy shots. They were fairly convenient for me and they had all his records so I figured I would give them a try. It is hard to explain, but much like another reviewer, I didn't get an overall good feeling about them. I had no real complaints, but I just didn't get the same fuzzy feeling I have when I take my other pets to the Conyers Veterinary Clinic, which is who I normally use. The staff seems very friendly, but something was just kind of...off.
My husband said I was crazy and to just keep taking him there and I did. I let them finish all his shots and had him neutered. My husband changed his mind when we had to take the puppy in for a follow up 10 days after he was neutered. Since we had to go there to have his stitches removed, we thought we'd have them clip his nails while he was there. They charged us $16.00 to trim his nails! I don't know if that is average pricing, but it sure seemed excessive for the less than 3 minutes worth of work and the fact that I'm the one that held the dog!
My husband doesn't know much about "feelings" but a shot in the wallet got his attention! We won't be returning to this clinic. Conyers...I'm sorry we strayed!
