We are new clients, our first visit to CAC was this past week for one pets annual vaccines and wellness profile. We live some distance away from Roswell but have followed the inimitable, fearless Dr. Dianne Dawkins since 1997. (She cannot escape our fractious felines!) Dr. Dawkins compassionate, limitless care has helped our cats, and us, through several DIFFICULT times plus she has intuitively placed special needs kitties in our home; always a perfect match. Both my wife and I are fussy customers with high expectations. CAC is well-organized & very clean. The staff are all friendly & professional; vet tech Jason was so good with Gree. (This 12 year old precious stray cat is scheduled for a dental cleaning here in August).

Visited this clinic for the first time last week and was impressed with the staff and vet. They spent alot more time with me and my dog Jake, then I expected. They were busy while I was there, but made it a point to answer all my questions and take their time with Jake who is normally very nervous at the vet. I appreciate them taking their time to make me and Jake comfortable. Thanks.

Chattahoochee Animal Clinic takes care of our two rescue pups. Doc is great, but the receptionists, especially Erin, are amazing and limitlessly patient with my endless phone calls and questions.

Dr. Smith and the entire staff at CAC are amazing. They are friendly, compassionate and caring every single time we have been there. Their support of Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is how we found them and now we take ALL of our fur babies to them. You guys ROCK!

Thank you for the great review. Part of our mission is to have a positive impact in the community and helping out these great rescue organizations is a way that we can give back. Our staff truly enjoys giving these pets a second chance and also enjoys meeting the new parents of these pets. Thanks again for the review. Dr. Smith
What a great vet and staff. There is always such warm welcome, no matter when I go there. The latest was just before close because my dog was limping when I got home from work. You would have thought it was the middle of the day. There was no rush to push me out of there and Dr. Marcus took his time to ensure that my dog was ok. It has been a few days and Samson is limp-free and happy go lucky again. Thanks for all that you do Chattahoochee.

Thank you for the review. We are thrilled that Samson is back to 110% activity! We are always here to care for your pets, regardless of time of day. Thanks again for the review. Dr. Smith
I made the switch after 11 years at another Vet in town. I didn't know what I was missing. The follow up calls alone made me feel my pet was being well taken care of. The staff is friendly, well informed, and caring. I like the fact that you see the same doctor each visit that gets to know your pet. It's not a guessing game who you will get to see when your pet has an issue. Thank you Dr. Marus for your care and concern.

We are happy to have you as part of our family now. Consistency is key in medical care and by avoiding the "doctor roulette" we are able to provide that type of consistent, quality care. Thanks for the review! Dr. Smith
I took my dog, Hope, to CAC after she had surgery at UGA. Unlike the vets at UGA Dr. Smith went out of his way to provide me with extensive nutrition information and a nutritional plan for my dog who was progressively losing weight. Dr. Smith truly cares and he has really made a difference in Hope's health and recovery. His vet tech, Jason, is amazing as well! He is very personable and is always available to provide additional resources and information for clients that inquire. The entire staff is very friendly and supportive. This is one of the first veterinary practices that I have visited that doesn't overcharge or recommend unnecessary tests and services. They also offer boarding and grooming, which makes my life easier. I trust Dr. Smith and his staff wholeheartedly! I'm so grateful that I brought my dog to CAC. I couldn't be happier!

Thank you for the great review. You have one resilient pup! We are happy that you have chosen us to care for Hope. Part of my practice philosophy is to ensure that every patient and pet parent receives the best care available. When a pet owner walks out that door fully understanding both their pet's health status and a plan to ensure they stay that way, then we have done our job. Anything less is unacceptable. We are happy to be here for you in the future. Dr. Smith
Very professional, always so friendly, love to come here since my first visit. My dog Emma loves them all. Dr Smith is very professional and I trust him. Special Lisa is always nice and friendly, makes you feel so much welcome.

Thank you for the great review. Lisa always rolls out the welcome mat to clients and patients as if they were part of her family. We love to see Emma come in! She is always sooo happy and full of life! Thanks for the great review. Dr. Smith
CAC has been caring for my pets, both dogs and cats, for over 15 years! If I didn't like my internist so much, I'd go to the clinic for my care! My dogs love Lisa! From her infectious smile as you enter (who treats each pet as if they were her own) to the quality of care from Dr. Smith and the team, you will find no better! Grooming by Kathleen is phenomenal!

Thank you for the kind words. Lisa is a true animal lover and treats all of our patients as if they were her own pet. Our groomer, Kathleen has been a great addition to the team and we continue to receive positive feedback from our clients. Thank you for great the review and synopsis of your experience at CAC. Dr. Smith
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this clinic and Dr. Smith. They were the most knowledgeable staff and the kindness toward my cat. One would be foolish not to use this clinic for your pet!He saved my cats life!

Thanks for the great review. We love taking care of you pups and seeing them come in the clinic. We try every day to ensure that we have a family feel in our clinic. Honestly, we DO consider our clients and their furkids family. Seeing happy pups, such as yours come into the clinic makes having this job a blessing. Thanks for the review. Dr. Smith
Dr. Smith is amazing as is his staff. We used CAC when our dogs were in the final stages of their life and the entire staff was incredibly compassionate during a very difficult time. We now use them for our two golden retriever puppies!

Thank you for writing at review of our clinic. We are extremely happy to welcome you the the CAC family and look forward to many more happy, healthy visits in the future. Thanks again. Dr. Smith
Dr. Smith and his staff have worked miracles for my little Benny's arthritis. Benny has been battling bad knees for years and my old vet kept treating him over and over with medications that I came to find out were not the greatest for his organs. I went to Dr. Smith looking for possible alternative treatments. Dr. Smith took the time to hear out my concerns and then created a plan with laser therapy and natural supplements to help Benny be comfortable and manage his arthritis for the long haul. We are 1 month into our plan and he is like a new dog! Thanks Dr. Smith and staff for making my dog a puppy again!!

Thank you for the review. We are happy that we could help Benny become comfortable and get back to his old self. Laser therapy can definitely be a game changer in the management of arthritis, and it is great to see how well Benny responded. Thanks again for the review. -Dr. Smith
I have been bringing my rescue dog to Dr. Smith for 7 months since I adopted her. The staff is wonderful, sweet and caring. My dog has had a froth surgically removed as well as her spay surgery at CAC. Both procedures highly successful. My puppy drags me to the clinic door as soon as she gets out of the car! She can't wait to enter the clinic. That speaks volumes.

Thank you for the kind review. We are thrilled that your pup is doing great. We always treat our patients like they are our own pet, so we love it when our patients are busting through the door excited to see us. Thanks again for the review. Dr. Smith
