Banfield did not have the knowledge about kidney disease that we hoped for. Dr. McGowan was recommended to me from a colleague in the cat rescue circle and she did not disappoint. With her help, we kept Simba alive & comfy until Nov 24 2021. We could not have done it without Dr. McGownan's knowledge and compassion. I will never trust anyone else with my felines. McGowan is top-notch and the rest of the staff is always friendly and helpful to us. A perfect 10!Michelle B.Michelle B. ★★★★★ Great place, everyone was very friendly to me and especially my pet.

They go out of their way to make sure our dog is taken care of properly. Our dog can be a menace and they are quick to have a room ready for him before we get there and a dr who understands his temperament and will sit on the floor and be patient with him till he’s calmed down. Their staff is incredible and willing to go above and beyond to help in any way they can. We will never use another vet and couldn’t recommend them enough.Tiffany P.Tiffany P. ★★★★★ We’ve been going to this vet for 10 years with our dogs, Honeybee & Piper. Our doggos can be a bit anxious but seem calm around the staff, I think sensing they’re animal lovers. I feel like they’re in knowledgeable hands, and they’ve never pushed us toward unnecessary/costly procedures. Recent visits with Dr. Gazda, as well as communication in between visits (when we had a ton of GI questions) have in particular been good.Candice B.Candice B. ★★★★★ Great Dr and friendly staff,fast and no wait.John H.John H. ★★★★★ Dr Neeley is very knowledgeable and highly recommend.Michael T.Michael T. ★★★★★ Techs and doc listen to humans and care about patients.a da d ★★★★★ Good care for my pet. Thank you!Jamie L.Jamie L. ★★★★★ Taken care of our dogs for years always kind and don't tell you that you have to get this done if you don't have the money give you options and let you decide I live far now and still go cause I trust them with my dogsNancy F.Nancy F. ★★★★★ The techs and doctor were very gentle and kind with my cat; they made sure that she was taken care of and did everything within their power to make sure that she was calm wen getting her shots, and did not try to force her out of her comfort zone. The tech (Lindsay) and the doctor (Lyndsy) both assured me of my pet's health, informed me on her body, and when pointing out things that could potentially develop into a problem (tartar buildup on teeth), offered me a list of different options to try with detailed information on them. While normally my cat doesn't like anyone else touching her, as I rescued her from a feral, she was very open to them touching her and administering her shots. I am grateful that it went as smoothly as it did, and will be returning to Avalon for all of my pet needs.Derek L.Derek L. ★★★★★ Vet n staff take very good care of my petsKathi M.Kathi M. ★★★★★ Our cat, Little Cat, Is feeling much better after her visit to Avalon Veterinary Hospital!

Top-notch follow up after appointments & great communication. Thank you for taking such great care of my girl - special kudos to Sam too!Megan W.Megan W. ★★★★★ Dr Seremet and Chelsea were absolutely fantastic. We understand that our Mr Finn can be a challenge especially when he’s not feeling well. Chelsea sat with us making sure Finn was comfortable during sedation and that my husband and I were able to decompress. Dr Seremet has outstanding bedside manner. She did not rush us at all. She made us feel heard and was so patient and compassionate with our baby. We cannot thank these ladies enough. It is difficult to see your animal ill/injured and/or in pain. They did an incredible job helping us through a tough week.We have been going to Avalon since Finn was 6 months old and he’ll be 6 in July. All of the staff is wonderful and compassionate.

I have had a variety of dogs and cats and they received excellent care at each and every visit. I have had the opportunity to meet each veterinarian at one time or another and they all are very knowledgeable.

Unfortunately I had an issue scheduling an appointment again. The first time I did it online and it didn't show up. Then I decided to call to speak with someone at the office to make an appointment for my new cat. I get there and once again not showing up. They confirmed my information which hasn't changed. They did squeeze me in since I wasn't going to come back. Not sure why this is happening to me.Ellen E.Ellen E.js_loader
