Gaines School Animal Hospital is a full service Veterinary Clinic for small animals, mainly dogs and cats. We also treat rabbits, ferrets, and even pocket pets such as rats, guinea pigs and chinchillas. In addition, we work with local animal rescue groups, such as Athens Canine Rescue, PAWS, Athens Area Human Society, Athens Clarke County Animal Shelter, and Oconee County Animal Control, in order to improve the welfare of pets and animals in the Athens area. The mission of Gaines School Animal Hospital is to create a caring, lasting bond with our clients and patients by providing the highest quality veterinary care with excellent client education and service.
I am new to the area and my neighbors recommended Gaines School Veterinary Hospital. I was not disappointed. It has been a pleasant experience. From the initial phone call for appointments for my 2 cats to the actual appointments Loki and Tsuki had with Dr. Ekman and Dr. Yash. The whole office staff is great.
Everyone I interacted with was incredibly kind and supportive. They were able to squeeze me in on the same day that I called (which was SO helpful since my cat got in a scuffle with another cat and needed antibiotics sooner rather than later). They even gave me a complimentary animal carrier so that I could safely transport my cat. I'll be using Gaines School Animal Hospital for all my veterinary needs from now on.
The vet was thorough in his examination of my kitty. He was very thoughtful in his recommendations, and I felt that he listened to my concerns. I felt that we were very well taken care of, and I'm grateful for his help.
Everyone was terrific. Very knowledgeable staff. Took time to explain this for my new puppy and discuss information I had been given by others. Love the pre-paid option for puppy care and vaccinations.
When I walked in the receptionist knew my name and a simple update to my account was made without any complications. I had a great cup of coffee, which makes one feel at home. In no time I was taken back for an eye test and soon after saw Dr. Forche'. While my eyes are not the best, I am comforted by the knowledge that my eyesight will be well, and Dr. Forche' was a head of the game in taking care of my vision. Five Points Eye Care Center does not see its patients as numbers, but instead as family. They give personal care with friendly staff.
