Arbor Animal Clinic - visit at your own risk
All this vet hospital (I will not name the vet who took care of my pet because I think all the vets there have the same focus: money!) was concerned about was how much money they could get out of me.
Did all the tests, didnt diagnose anything, but treated my cat with as many expensive procedures as possible based on some assumptions, NOT diagnosis. She talked round and round and every conversation ended with suggestions for more tests and more procedures, that's all.
In the end, after subjecting my cat to torture and unnecessary procedures, they started telling me that if I was not cooperating with their continued treatment for my cat (so they could continue to run up my bill without proper diagnosis!!), their suggestion was to euthanize him - so they could make more money!!
I took in a sick cat, brought home a much sicker cat and nursed him back to health myself. He only had a minor ailment that they made worse because they wanted money - I am lucky to have gotten away with a $700 bill and my cat alive.
Take your pet here at your own risk. All they see is $$$!
And BTW, friendliness is no substitute for proper diagnosis and correct treatment for ailments. All those smiles dont make it up for making my cat much worse than he actually was, for subjecting him to unnecessary procedures all for the sake of money!
I checked with another vet right after taking my cat back home and a course of antibiotic was all he really needed in the first place and Arbor animal clinic cost me $700!
At best, if one wants to be charitable - they dont have the expertise to differentiate between an ordinary ailment and a serious one. At worst, they are complete mercenaries who wont hesitate to kill your pet if you dont cough up dough.
