Even during the pandemic, they were able to get us in for emergencies.Jessica G.Jessica G. ★★★★★ Avalon is always welcoming and helpful. We are so grateful to the staff here that always sincerely listens and takes the time to talk through any possibilities. Thanks to Avalon, we have been able to catch issues early on that gave us more time with our precious pets.Ariel F.Ariel F. ★★★★★ Very friendly/caring service. 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.

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. ★★★★★ They're always greatJ JJ J ★★★★★ I'm on my third dog going to Avalon Veterinary clinic.

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. ★★★★★ Great people working their.Nicole B.Nicole B. ★★★★★ They are fantastic! We have had nothing but good experiences there.Alex M.Alex M. ★★★★★ My dog is a drama queen and acts super scared everytime we go to the vet. They are kind and patient with her and spent a lot of time trying to find toys and treats until she was more comfortable.Kihra K.Kihra K. ★★★★★ The receptionists and all staff were extremely welcoming. The vet tech and Dr Neely were very thorough in their examinations of our dog, Lily. Even though Lily is 8, I learned things about her care and medications that I never knew before. I am willing and excited to try some of their knowledgeable ideas concerning our dog's care.Wendy D.Wendy D. ★★★★★ I've been going to Avalon Vet for years and they've always been terrific. My nearly 13-year-old dog had to have dental surgery recently, which is something I had been putting off for a while because I was afraid for him to go under anesthesia. The vets and techs were very patient with all of my questions about the procedure and explained everything clearly. They have been great about following up and checking in on him, as well as sending along info about another issue they noticed with his eyes. It's a minor thing, but I appreciated the doctor taking the time to look the condition up and send me some online info.Becky B.Becky B. ★★★★★ I love this practice. Very knowledgeable doctors and technicians.Stefani KStefani K ★★★★★ Absolutely love Avalon Vet Hospital. We had to make the extremely difficult decision to put down our beloved senior dog, and Dakota & Dr. Gazda made the process as quick and painless as they could for him. I can’t thank the staff enough for their compassion and understanding. We will be bringing all of our pets here in the future.Erica W.Erica W. ★★★★★ We love the vets & vet techs here. Everyone is super friendly & they don't do things unnecessarily just to charge you more $. Would highly recommend if they are taking new clients. Ruby & Percy agree even tho it's not their favorite place.Nicole F.Nicole F. ★★★★★ Lola was very sick, AvalonVet called back said had cancelation bring her in, there in 20, Dr and assistant went through procedures provided excellent service, Lola doing and feeling better.Curtis C K.Curtis C K. ★★★★★ loved it. my cats ate alive because of them.Vincent R.Vincent R. ★★★★★ My cat had a urinary blockage. I woke up to him laying on my kitchen floor with blood all around him. I rushed him to a vet hospital in Robinson, by the Kohl's and giant eagle. They said it would cost around $2000 and I would have to leave him for surgery. I asked if I could pay half and the rest when I picked him up. They refused and sent me home. They told me he would die without the surgery. I called and emailed every vet I could find on line. THE ONLY VET THAT WOULD HELP ME IS AVALON VET. They saved my cats life and I will never forget that. They took immediately. Also, the final bill was no where near as much as the vet in Robinson. The owners of Avalon vet are literally the most awesome people and I have never met them personally. I will say this, they are probably one of the few vets who do what they do for the sake of the animals and not the money. I promise you this. Thank you Avalon, everyone who works here. You are truly the best ❤️MelissaMelissa ★★★★★ I've been going here for over 13 years. I have cats, dogs, and a turtle. They have provided the best car for my pets and are affordable.Kerrie H.Kerrie H. ★★★★★ Great staff.

Every encounter I have had with them has left me more impressed. I know I found the right place for my pets now and in the future. I have seen all of the vets, but recently we have only been seeing Dr. Ladd and she is just incredible. I mean her dedication, attention to detail, and “bedside” manor is just top notch. She genuinely cares and she is so knowledgeable. All of their techs are just as dedicated and just the kindest. I’ve always loved Avalon, but with everything going on with my dog I have a whole new respect for them. I couldn’t feel more confident in the care they provide for any and all pets.Cassie C.Cassie C. ★★★★★ Very professional and caring staff.Angela F.Angela F. ★★★★★ The best experience I’ve had with a veterinary team. I have been taking my German Shepherds here for years. Recently, I have had to take my GS, Bear, for rechecks the past couple of weeks. The Avalon veterinary team made me feel at ease by their compassion and dedication towards animals. Bear would like to give a special shout out to Dr. Neely, Dr. McGowan, Dakota, and Jacquelyn for being so friendly, attentive, caring, and accommodating to us. Thank you!Angelica C.Angelica C. ★★★★★ Absolutely fantastic! They all really care about your pet. Couldn't ask for anything better.John W.John W. ★★★★★ Great service, very knowledgeableJacob H.Jacob H. ★★★★★ Took my dog, Knowby here today with some lingering GI concerns. The hospital was clean and bright and the front desk ladies were super kind! Everyone I spoke with was great especially with my nervous old man. Hannah, our vet tech was especially sweet.
