Dr. Gardner, Dr. Dossey and the staff always make Charlie and me feel very special. Whatever health issue I am dealing with I know it will be resolved. I have been coming to Dr. Gardner for 40 years and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
My dog is my best friend. TCVH staff were very knowledgeable, warm, welcoming, and friendly. I liked that they spent a fair amount of time examining my dog in front of me. They were also able to take a sample of my dog's blod and lipoma to tell if I had anything to worry about within a 30 minute visit. I feel I can trust their judgement and that they really care about animals.
This was my first app. Before I would rate 5 star, I would need to have more app. I was pleased w/Dr. Dossy and her evaluation of the problem. I always do my research from many sources so that I better understand and trust the outcome of my dog's examination. Once, I actually knew more than my Vet on a particular problem after I spent $300.00 for allergy test which could have been avoided and there was no answer after test was done. I did some research about ingesting plastic which was the cause for my dog's skin affecting his nose. I allowed my pup (Bluey) to play with and it caused a reaction on his nose.Since the test did not reveal anything, it was then suggested an antibiotic and that cleared up the prob. I warn people to not allow dogs to play with toxic plastic bottles. I could have saved $300! I'm a very conscientious dog owner and have a great tract record of good care for all the pets I've had both cats and dogs. I do entrust greatly the expertise of a Veternarian when I need to seek out help for my pets and yes, I have had to take my pets to a Veternarian at times. I also think it is important that if anything is questionable, get two or three opinions. I learned that the hard way when my dog of 15 was misdiagnosed because a Vet didn't take the time to really listen to my dog's heart until an emergency Dr. diagnosed the problem and my dog finally died about 9 months later. She was on medicine for her heart probs. I knew it was a matter of time. I had her for 15.5 yrs. and all my pets have aged well which I believe says a lot about my care for them. I don't profess to diagnose my pets but I do my homework before and after I visit the Dr.
We had a great first vet experience with our 12 week old puppy here at Town & Country Vet with their awesome staff! Everyone made us feel very comfortable and our puppy never once was scared or nervous of a new surrounding place. Best vet!!
As always Dr. Gardner and staff take excellent care of Penny. They know me and my dog on sight. They got me I without an appointment for an emergency. No rushing. Penny received all the attention she needed and then some. Thank you
