I have used this vet office for 15+ years. First with our cat. She had kind and considerate care for many years. After 15 happy & healthy years, she was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors at Chamblee Animal hospital let us choose the treatment options with no pressure from them for the expensive, aggressive type. When we got a puppy, we began taking her there. For 10 years we have been very satisfied with the level of care she receives. By far, Chamblee Animal Hospital is the best value in town.

I've been taking my cats to Chamblee Animal Hospital for about 9 years now, and I'm so glad I found them. I've been there many times, having had 2 cats with diabetes, and they are like a second family to me. Dr. Wiest and Dr. Harris are kind and patient without fail, and they always take the time to answer my questions. They have many years of experience, and they treat my pets like their own.

These guys have been my vet for about 20 yrs. They fixed my pup after he got into the trash & ate razor blades. They were reasonable on the price for a weeklong stay w/surgery, and best of all, treated my animals as if they were their own. Dr. Wiest is the best and is extremely patient and explains everything completely.

I was taking my dog to a free-play facility but she doesn't really like the other dogs. So, this vet boards her for half the price and they are very sweet to her. I've also used the vet for various routine things...heartworm tests, rabies vac, nail trims, ear infections, and they're great & very reasonable. My dog had a weird growth on her back and they removed it to test it. I was out of town the entire time, and they were great about keeping me updated on her progress & the test results (which came back negative--yay!). The office looks like something fresh from the 70s, but they treat my dog very very well!

The level of incompetence at this vet is incomprehensible. We brought our new puppy in for her initial check-up at this office (we picked her up from the pound the day before). She was experiencing nausea, no appetite, and bloody stool. When we picked her up, the vet had prescribed amoxicillin and Heartgard. We immediately gave the dog the meds, but she promptly regurgitated those back up within minutes. We told the vet and the response was "I'm not sure what to do". Her symptoms were exponentially worse the following day and wasn't even drinking water, so we took her to the ER at Pets Are People Too. After we told that doc what her symptoms were he IMMEDIATELY said that she had the deadly Parvo virus. They tested and it was positive. Per their recommendations, we immediately started sub-cutaneous fluids and plasma infusions. Despite the efforts of the docs there, less than 60 hours after being seen by "doc" harris, the cute, friendly pup died. Subsequent follow-up with harris as to why she didn't suspect and/or test for Parvo, especially considering she came from a pound, was 1) She didn't have the symptoms of parvo (which is dumbfounding), and 2) They DON'T HAVE PARVO TESTS!! Had a proper diagnosis been made at the initial visit, odds were immense (per Pets Are People too) that she would have fully recovered. It was just too advanced by the time they first saw her. Stay away from chamblee animal hospital....please.
