My JoeJoe

I do not have enough kind words to speak of Dr. Sara Cowan and the staff at this Facility. We brought our almost 11 year old Boxer/Great Dane "Joe" for a procedure recommended by our Vet. Even though we did not receive good news for our boy 🙁 The professionalism, compassion & true concern & care for our boy was clearly shown to him and us. We cannot thank you enough – God Bless!

Thank you Dr. Kris Painter in Largo

Thank-you Dr. Kris Painter & all staff that helped with Tigger and for helping me understand what was wrong with my little boy! I brought my very, very ill cat to these folks & the Vet couldn't have been more helpful & explained every move to me that I approved for them to do! Unfortunately he had already lost the battle & was brain dead when I brought him in. It Was another thing to try & stop my little Troopers heart! He had a lust for life, chase the dogs, tease the bird & wake me at exactly 5am each and everyday to feed him and his big brother! God Bless You All!

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you for taking care of my puppy Snickers. Came in 2 nights ago, thought she was choking but you found that she had a furniture felt disk stuck to the roof of her mouth. Thank you so much!!! You are awesome!!

Thank You

We brought our 14 year old chihuahua in on Christmas Eve in acute distress. Dr. Kris Painter explained everything and the treatment options. She was concerned not only about making our little guy better but also the most cost effective plan. Dr. Painter is very knowledgeable and we felt that the options she recommended were the best. Unfortunately, our little Buddy deteriorated very rapidly and we had to let him go. The process was very emotional but Dr. Painter and the staff were very kind and supportive. I highly recommend Dr. Painter and the staff and would definitely take my other dog there.

I can't thank Dr Miller enough

After taking my one eyed 14 year old rescue bichon BillyBob to many Vets in the Indian Rocks Beach area with no positive results in curing his remaining eye disorder, I found Dr Tom Miller who performed a miracle with BillyBob. Dr Miller not only cured Billybob's serious eye disorder in one visit, but his gentle caring manner put Billybob at such ease during the treatment. Billybob is such a happy senior one eyed Bichon friend I can't thank Dr Miller enough.

Dr. Oswald is the best!

My dog Zoe has been seeing Dr. Oswald for a couple of years now and I am so blessed to have such an incredibly warm, friendly, reassuring, and of course very knowledgeable internal medicine specialist in the Tampa Bay area. I drive from Riverview just to seek his excellent care for my beagle. The staff are so friendly and we are pampered every time we visit. One thing that has always stood out, other than the excellent care my pet and I receive, is that there is very little wait time, if any. This is so surprising for such an esteemed clinic. A big THANK YOU to Dr. Oswald and the wonderful staff for all that they do for our beloved animals!

Amazing Compassion

Our beloved 17 year old cat Midori suffered what we believed was a stroke. Our vet was closed, and we raced to your office, knowing that this would likely be our last minutes with Midori. Your team immediately took her to Triage, and we were in a private room within 15 minutes. The doctor came in immediately and confirmed our fears and we made the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye. The entire staff treated us with such compassion. From explaining our options, to taking care of the bill prior to the procedure, to giving us the time we needed to say goodbye. When the time came, the doctor explained everything that would happen, and encouraged us to talk to Midori and let her know we were there. She also offered us as much time as we needed after. It was an awful and hearbreaking situation, but your staff made it so much easier. You might not expect that level of compassion from an "Emergency Room" type situation, but you are AMAZING. We thank you!

It is nice to fall into their caring hands

Called ahead, there in 20 minutes. Gal behind desk asked who I was as I came through the door. She called to back for tech using my cat's name specifically, signalling to me they had prepared based on my call. Within 15 seconds tech had Hunter and asked one question before taking him to back. Dr. Soyka diagnosed, prescribed and executed quickly on a transfusion which saved my friend's life. Pet lovers know when we are headed for a place like this the outcome can be dark, but unbounded love and commitment drive us through those doors. This operation clicked on every step. The Dr. and the 2 techs I dealt with were concise and worked quickly. The gal at the desk glued it all together from front to back. It is nice to fall into their caring hands when in such a fragile state. Will be back.

Our experience with TBVS was excellent

Our 6 year old pit mix, Gordo, needed surgery to remove a mass from one of his parathyroid glands. Dr. Sawyer thoroughly explained the procedure and recovery to us. and graciously answered all questions. She called us after his surgery and kept us updated on his status the 2 days he was hospitalized(even on Easter Sunday) The entire staff is compassionate, courteous and genuinely concerned about your pet's well-being. The best endorsement comes from Gordo who practically prances into the building and back to get his follow-up lab work done. Testament to the loving care he received there. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. Thanks to everyone on the staff, especially Dr. Sawyer!!!!

Grateful beyond words

We cannot thank you, Dr. Oakes, and your staff enough for taking such wonderful care of Kingston. To think that our pup had a large, cancerous tumor in the liver and we had no idea, is just so scary. Kingston has recovered nicely. You are the best!!! You saved our precious dog's life and added quality years to it 🙂

Dr. Oakes Was Just Amazing

Dr. Oakes was Amazing !!! It was very had to take our beloved golden Toby to another vet because he had only been seen since he was a puppy by his primary, however when he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer we were told Dr Oakes was the best. They were right!!! He is amazing. He walked us through everything. Toby came through with flying colors. I would recommend anyone seeking a vetinary surgeon contact them first. They aren't the flashy advertisers but they are certainly fantastic !!!

Everyone here is absolutely the best!

In all my 71 years that I have had dogs, cats, etc., this is by far the BEST FACILITY I’ve ever been to. It is so refreshing to find receptionists who are not only charming, and welcoming but can also understand them. I thank the powers I found such a wonderful place for my “fur babies”. Everyone here is absolutely the best! They are very kind and thoughtful! The doctors were unbelievably kind and knowledgeable and they didn’t talk down to me or make me feel uncomfortable. They spent their valuable time with me, explaining everything in laymen terms so I could understand. Thank you so much!
