We have been going to Conestoga Animal hospital for 30 years and after the care I received yesterday, We are leaving! It is well time for Dr. Melvin Wenger to RETIRE! The way he treated my dogs was uncalled for. This is not the first time he has been exceptionally rough with my dogs. I usually request not to see him but I didn't specify this time. Dr. Wenger, GIVE IT UP! We have had good visits with Dr. Scott Adams and Dr. Julie Adams and Dr. Zimmerman. They have all been very kind and caring. I am sorry to be leaving this practice but I can not risk my dogs being subject to this treatment. My rating would be above average but I can't do that after my experience.

I have been taking my animals here for years! I got a new puppy and she became very sick it was late on a Friday night so I called Lancaster ER and they said bring her right in! I did and they gave her medicine and sent us home, almost $300.00. The next day she was worse. I called Conestoga they said bring her right in! Dr Wenger said it was a viral infection gave her 2 shots, said they would keep her for the day. Call in the eve. I went to pick her up at 7:30 that eve. She was her wonderful playful self!!! Less than $100.00 For all day!!! Diagnosed and treated correctly!!!

my dog hates the car and has seizures so conestoga even said I could have the needed blood work done someplace else so I tried and the new vet moved my files and now conestoga will not take me back. I did not want to switch vets I just wanted to help my dog. I had been with conestoga over 15 years heartbreaking I'm so upset about this.

We have been taking our pets here for years. Our dog was diagnosed with diabetes; they were very compassionate and very forthcoming with information. Anytime I have a question they will answer it. I have to have him checked every 4-6 weeks, so he is familiar with all the vets and I have never had any problems. Their rates are extremely reasonalbe. The staff is always very friendly!! Highly recommend.

I have been taking my dogs here for quite some time about 10 years or so. My rottie had some problems with his knee and needed surgery 3 x. They did a great job and the surgery was cheap, whenever I have a question they are always eager to help out. Everyone is nice and willing to take the time to answar questions. Would recommend this vet to everyone!

When reading a negative review for this group I was at first puzzled because I have taken my pets to this office for a very long time. I was so relieved when I realized they had the wrong office- there isn't any doctor by the name of 'Merven'. Thank Goodness! My pets have had the very best care & treatment at this office. Even though I live further away now, I still bring them to Conestoga Animal Hospital. For anybody who is reading this, ignore the negative comment and focus on the positive. It's worth your time and effort.

We went to take out doggy for her nail trimming & our pit-boxer sensed it right away, her tail immediately went between her legs when VMD Merven Wenger entered the room. He was very pushy with her & rough with the muzzle. The staff was very ignorant & disrespectful! 1st & last time we will ever go to this clinic for our pet. Terrible treatment all around!!!

I have been taking my dogs to CAH since the late 80's, when I lived in Ephrata. I have since moved to Lancaster for the last 5 years and I still make the trip to Conestoga Animal Hospital when my dogs need their shot or for any type of emergency that comes up. They are priced low and their knowledge and compassion about animals is top knotch. I would not take my dogs anywhere else. All the Vets there are knowledgable and know how to treat my dogs and treat me with respect. Their staff is always very courteous and professional.

My parents take their animals to Conestoga, and even though I live 80 miles away, I bring my pets there also. They are THE BEST! So compassionate, knowledgeable and charge much less than any other vet I have gone to. Always courteous and very accommodating whenever I make appointments. I would highly recommend them!

We have brought dogs, cats and rabbits here for years, and have always gotten very courteous service! The complainer who dishonestly posted twice is probably just a pushy New Yorker.

We are new to the area and we had a appointment, and we were running a few minutes late. When we called they told us to reschedule our appointment and were very rude to me and When I spoke with the doctor and I told him that the girl was very rude he said " my staff Is good that I must have taken it the wrong way" NO Doctor you need to teach your staff to be respectful, If that happened at the 6 doctor practice I worked at for over 8yrs she would have been FIRED!!! THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT DOC!! Never put the customer down DOC!!! and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can NOT TO GO TO YOUR CLINIC.

My family has been bringing our dogs here for years and we receive amazing care each time. I now live out of county but make the hour trip whenever I take my dog for her yearly visit or when she is sick. I have tried others but they fail in comparison!
