If I could leave no stars I would. I called while on my way to have my newborn puppy put to sleep because her intestines were on the outside of her stomach. They wanted 174.00, I called another vet.. they charged me 22.50, gave us paw prints, flowers to plant and were so kind and compassionate to my crying girls. I will never call this place again. Money hungry all the way!!

This clinic saved my newfoundland from AIHA, caused by the rattlesnake vaccine given by my vet. I was urged by my vet to take her there even though I lived in another state. They saved her and the fatality rate from AIHA is over 70%. Yes their expensive but 24 hr vet supervision and well worth the money.

Run don't walk away from this horrible facility. Someone threw a kitten over my fence at Chrismas and I rushed her to this nearest vet. They wanted $1.200.00 for treatment and a 3 day "hospital stay." They demanded all or half down. I gave them $600.00. When I called to check on her 4 hours later they told me I had to come pick her up as they had no overnight facility, told me to transfer her to another city to an overnight facility, pick her up "before 8AM" in the other city and then bring her back to Noah's. They expected me to do this for the duration of her treatment. NEVER was this EVER explained when I signed the treatment plan and paid for "hospitalization." Thank God my daughter who works for the Humane Society was with me or I doubt anyone in their right mind would even believe my story. I picked her up and brought her to another facially that provides overnight care where she is recovering. Like a fool I thought since Kitty was only at Noah's Place for 4 hours that I would receive a reimbursement on my $600.00. I was wrong. They demanded $60.00 more from me so I am in the hole for $700.00. Since this I have read the awful reviews this place gets.They deserve them %100.

I recommended Pound Vet to anyone. The Management and employees are always very caring. They don't just treat your animals and then release them, they connect with all of the animals that are brought to anyone their clinic. Thank You for all that you do. :--)

I take my three Chihuahuas to VCA in Wausau, and I have had nothing but wonderful service there. The ladies there treat my dogs with kindness and my little ones are not the friendliest to strangers. I Have always get in right away and when I have had emergencies I was able to get in within the hour. I have also been able to hold off on payment until the end of the week before when I was short on cash when I had an emergency come up before my paycheck came in. I have never ever had a bad experience with them and I would not take my dogs anywhere else. I did however go with my mother to her vets in Athens and watched her vet treat her little yorkie like a rag doll, which only reinforced my good feelings about my vets. I would recommend VCA in Wausau WI to anyone I see with pets.

I took my dog there for treatment. The diagnoses was correct but they exaggerated the urgency in which surgery was needed and wanted payment up front for her treatment. I had taken my dog there because my normal vet was already closed for the day so I decided to wait and speak with my vet before making a decision. The following day my vet saw my dog and scheduled a surgery for 2 days later. The cost quoted at VCA was double the amount my regular vet charged and the first question out of his mouth wasn't regarding payment for service. I'm glad I waited to see him rather than rushing with the decision at VCA. They seem to be more focused on what they can make off of your pets rather than treating them.

Horrible experience! I cannot believe they let our poor dog Coco suffer! We recently changed to VCA and they ran some blood work on Coco. They knew for 5 days that Coco had acute kidney failure and they never called us!!! They let Coco suffer until he got so bad we had to bring him in to the emergency room and leave him for a few days(cost us a fortune). That should have been our first warning but we continued with VCA. After he came home he had numerous issues. We brought him back for vomiting and no appetite. They prescribed a medicine for him and told me to go to the pharmacy to get it… I went to all the pharmacies in Portsmouth and no one had it. I called VCA numerous times and they did not call back. Finally when they did they promised to call a compounding pharmacy and they would call me back immediately. I waited a day and no call so I called VCA again and on second call finally got the number of the pharmacy. Called pharmacy and they said VCA called in the prescription too late and it would not be ready until after Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week. I went online and found some substitutes so I called VCA again and emailed the information… NO ONE CALLS BACK!!! (do you see a pattern here) Over that weekend Coco became very sick again and we had to bring him back to VCA. After we paid lots of money they suddenly had the prescription in stock!! They gave him something for the vomiting also. I asked why they did not do this before and the answer was I don’t know but here it is now! I wanted to bring the lack of follow up to a manager… I was promised multiple times that Josh would call me back… he never did. Even when we told them we were going to another vet he still did not call back! I had to have someone at the front desk track him down and call me… he said he would review the issue and call me back on Tuesday… I AM STILL WAITING ON THE CALL BACK!!! I believe that he does not call back because they know they did something very wrong and don’t want to admit to it. We took Coco to Ocean Valley Vet and he is doing very well! The doctor calls us to follow up or just to check in (even on weekends)! VCA needs to learn from him!
