If you are looking for a good Veterinarian..KEEP LOOKING!

This vet seemed to be more reasonable than others, but as with anything else you get what you pay for! I've never seen less compassion towards animals and their owners. My dog was obviously frightened and there were no comforting words from them, but instead impatience and frustration.

I will not be going back. I love my dog!

The vet I saw here (a woman) was not very knowledgeable. Saw my cat for two minutes, didn't have a diagnosis or any idea of a remedy/medication but still had no problem charging me the $50 visit fee. Had me leave there believing I might have to give up. Went to another vet who was knowledgeable and got help+medication. Would not recommend. Two stars because of friendly front desk staff.

Dr. Syken is a complete head case. He took and tortured our dog because his staff member did not have control of her. We were dropping her off to have ligament surgery and what he did was reprehensible. He put a plastic zip tie in our dog leg, I saw this with my own eyes on the x-ray only after 3 month's of telling my wife I we were not doing enough to rehabilitate the leg. It was after that period that the xray was taken and Dr. Syken then told us it was cancer. It was happening all too quick, and when we agreed to put her down, he did it in the most inhumane way, he pushed all of the drug to euthanize her at once. IT was cruel. STAY AWAY FROM THIS NUT

I'm not sure where that bad review came from because I've been going there for over 20 years and I have never experienced anything but love for my pets, kindness, and expert care. They truly love animals. They saved my cat back in the day with years of experience and a skilled staff.

I would have no doubt recommending this clinic, particularly to anyone who wants nothing less but the best service for their beloved pets.

I have been going here for over 10 years with various animals. I love the staff and the Vet is always very helpful and answers all my questions. My mother takes all her pets here as well and we couldn't be happier with the service we receive. It is also very reasonable priced compared to others in the area.
