I had been a client of Vernon Woods for over 30 years, I have become very disappointed over the last several years. Unfortunately, I have found that over the years the prices continue to increase and the quality of care has decreased. Although many of the vets are very kind, I find that they are not up to date in comparison to many of the other veterinarians in town. I have found many cases in which an "answer" has been given without fully knowing if it is the correct one. I would much rather have someone say I don't know and refer me to a specialist, than have my pet on unecessary (sometimes harmful)medication. After years of paying too much and getting mediocre care, I switched to a veterinarian that has state of the art equipment and yet still costs less.
