They lost my dog!!!!
by Laurie A , 02/09/2011
I dropped of my dog to be neutered, and within an hour, received a phone call from them stating my dog escaped. That was 2 hours ago. Still no sign of him. AND they made me pay for the services in advance.
My dog they lost...
by Laurie A , 02/11/2011
Is now dead, killed by a vehicle, because they let him escape from their kennel after he had been there only an hour...
dog died while in their care due to their neglect and carelessness! Owners beware!

My friend's dog was hit and killed by a car while under the care of the clinic-- he "somehow" escaped an hour after being left there-- the staff has been less than forthcoming and compassionate about what has happened due to their neglect-- a little bit more help and honest answers and a truly more remorsefull attitude would have gone a long ways in easing somewhat the pain and grief that my friend and her family has gone through during this ordeal-- THIS should not have happened at all-- this place has a serious trust and honesty issue and I wouldn't trust leaving a stray animal in their care-- I would seriously think twice about leaving your pet there-- they are in danger if the problems that caused the dog to escape are still present-- this place should be shut down and it's license revoked for their handling of this whole sad sitution-- Pet owners beware!!!!!
Shewmaker is a nightmare!
by KC , 02/17/2011
My dog went to him for a simple cut; that cut turned into the biggest nightmare. After taking the dog into another clinic for help, the clinic was unable to get any records at all from Dr. Shewmaker's office. My pet survived, but, the nightmare still hurts. Everyone who has had a Shewmaker nightmare needs to get together and let our stories get noticed. And you're right, he should get NO thumbs....one is too many.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Please do not trust your beloved animal with Dr. Shewmaker or his staff. I recently moved to Florida from Pennsylvania and made the mistake of allowing Dr. Shewmaker to spay my dog. After my dog's spay - which oddly enough I was advised to pay for in cash, not by check or credit cart - the staff informed me that she did not receive any pain medicine before, during, or after her procedure. This being my first dog, I felt very uncomfortable about this situation, but they informed me she would be fine because she had already had puppies (before I adopted her). When I woke up to her screaming at 3 am, I knew they were wrong. I got her pain meds the next morning (it cost me $60) and she seemed to be okay. She actually did recover nicely from her procedure. However, the flea medicine they gave me (and charged $48 for) does NOT work and she has been infested with fleas for 2 months now. I am trying to get a refund but in the meantime I have switched to the Animal Hospital of Labelle.
Not happy with Shewmaker
by wandateems , 05/17/2009
Personally I am looking for another vet for my 10 chihuahua's. Was charged 137.oo for a vet check that did not happen and 24.00 for two prescriptions just to be written. All they did was take a temp and a fecal exam. Never checked by puppies belly which is what I was concerned about due to she just had puppies. They advertize a 10.00 charge for a well check? Why was I charged 55.00 for an exam that didn't even happen? I'll drive 30 miles to get a good vet for my pups!
Lost my friend's dog
by sandi , 02/11/2011
My friend dropped her dog off for a routine neutering appointment and the clinic lost him. He ended up being hit and killed by a car. They did not offer much help to find him while she was frantically calling around and looking for him. Obviously, the facility is not secure enough to keep the animals safe. Find another clinic.

Dr Shewmaker - an excellent vet
by Harry Spears , 07/29/2011
Dr Shewmaker has taken care of my 3 dogs and 4 cats for a number of years. I have found him to be an excellent vet, and a very caring individual. He has never hesitated to open up in the middle of the night for an emergency, and has always explained exactly what he's doing and why, showing xrays and lab results and explaining what they show and mean.
