★★★★★ 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!

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.

Helpful and supportive staff.Jeff L.Jeff L. ★★★★★ I have been taking my dogs to Avalon Veterinary for many years, and they have always been very compassionate, as well as very professional and knowledgeable. From what I understand, they went under new management a couple of years ago, and I believe that they may have had a few hiccups because it seemed as though they weren't quite as friendly as they had been in the past, or as I was accustomed to. That being said, my dog (Keno) was recently diagnosed as diabetic, and the staff and veterinarian there have been absolutely great. They have been working to get Keno's blood sugar regulated, and he has been steadily improving. I have to take him in every couple of weeks, and he stays all day until his his blood sugar is regular. Keno may be the only dog that actually likes going to the vet because he is taken care of so well when he is there. I highly recommend the Avalon Veterinary Hospital.Mel P.Mel P. ★★★★★ We received prompt and compassionate care for our cat and dog. Thank you!Brittany C.Brittany C. ★★★★★ Your team has been so friendly and helpful to my Dogs the entire few years we have been coming there. When my Lab passed, I was more than touched by how sympathetic and comforting everyone was and how easy you made it for me to deal with. Taking all my decisions away and helping me through the process are truly grateful for you. I recommend you to everyone, it is a drive for me but worth it. Lastly, my new dog Josie is so excited when she hears her vets voice, she gets so excited. Thank you!!Jeffrey D.Jeffrey D. ★★★★★ Everyone was calm, kind and willing to discuss any issues I might have. I felt like the office was run with efficiency and a staff who enjoyed what they did.Elizabeth B.Elizabeth B. ★★★★★ Love this vet.

They use top of the line anesthesia which unfortunately pet rescues can't always use due to the cost . the whole team at Avalon veterinarian just were so on point with their care I cried after her surgery I was so happy my fluffie is gonna be ok . I was so scared to get her surgery but it all worked out I don't take my fluffies anywhere else. And the veterinarian ,Dr Seremet, she called me and was updating me as surgery was proceeding I was like WOW so nice I just can't thank enough was about 1,300 and worth every penny . Thank you forever grateful,Also I wanted to add Never use diffusers with cats they are allergic to many of the oils such as lemon, lime, lavendar, tea tree oil etc please don't use them will cause respiratory problems and serious life issues and also don't let them lick salt lamps cats are allergic to salt and garlic and onions and a lot of other stuff do not use baking soda in litter box they are allergic to that as well these things are toxic I think all veterinary places and rescue shelters should have leaflets explaining this thank God I never used a diffuser near my fluffiesJennyJenny ★★★★★ The people that really care for your petBryan D.Bryan D. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff are great!Erin S.Erin S. ★★★★★ I'm on my third dog going to Avalon Veterinary clinic. So compassionate and friendly, to me also...lol.They truly love dogs and animals.A++Howard F.Howard F. ★★★★★ Avalon Vet Hospital is not glamorous or glitzy like many of the other local practices. It is, however, staffed by caring, compassionate and skilled employees who treat your pets as if they were their own.Oma 3.Oma 3. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff are amazing.Celina H.Celina H. ★★★★★ They always take such good care of my pups Jackson from routine immunizations to emergency care. This place is amazing.Becki GBecki G ★★★★★ Very helpfulFrank C.Frank C. ★★★★★ We have taken various cats to Avalon Veterinary Hospital over the years, and one thing that has been consistent is the compassion the cats have received from the doctors and staff. Our latest emergency visit did not go the way we wanted, and we said farewell to Tiger after a short 11 years. When Dr. Seremet gave me news in the initial appointment, I explained the importance of taking him home so my daughters, who were in school, can say goodbye. She understood this, and provided me information about his condition to share with them, along with what we can do to make Tiger comfortable being at home since he was no longer eating, and allowed me to pick a day and time when we all could say farewell. Although I had hoped he would pass at home, the dreaded day came, but they allowed us more time than I expected to spend his final moments with us. They would check, and tell us when we were ready, they would start, and they did not want to rush us. Once Tiger left my arms, and climbed on to the table himself, we knew it was time. Dr. Seremet went over things with my Daughters about his condition, about the change in his quality of life, answered our questions, and explained how he was not going to get any better, and how it would only get worse over time with what would need required. She even took the time to explain things more to my Oldest Daughter who is interested in the veterinarian field. She made the process easier to handle for us all. Any future pets we bring in to our house will be going to Avalon Veterinary Hospital.Thomas V. G.Thomas V. G. ★★★★★ The office manager Jacquelyn and Dr. Gazda made this whole experience easy, quick, and enjoyable for both my cat and I!dowdy G.dowdy G. ★★★★☆ Staff is caring and nice.Lori L.Lori L. ★★★★☆ Very nice staff and doctor. 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. ★★★★☆ Nice veterinarian, but they only have a few parking spaces.Venus M.Venus M.js_loader
