12 years ago after going to 3 other vets I finally found a practice that treats my dogs as well (really better) than my pediatrician treats my children. They have seen us through age 6-13 of our two jack Russell (one w serious eye condition) and now 6 years of two crazy pugs (one who eats everything)!WE LOVE Deerfield--they are honest, straight forward,deeply caring and give a range of options for costly events. You wont find a better Vet practice in Springfield MO!

The only good thing I can say about Deerfield is that if your pet is young and healthy they can take care of him. If your pet has problems, they will suck you dry of money, then tell you that it's time to put your pet to sleep anyway. I've had this happen twice - with my cat and my beloved dog. I knew he was dying of old age but wanted him to feel better. Deerfield gave us hope by telling us he just had a stomach flu, but of course, it would cost us at least $300+. I told them I didn't have more than that to spend especially before Christmas. At $369 they sent him home looking worse than before. When I looked at the bill, I realized that the I only spent about $38 in meds that could have made my dog actually feel better. The rest was all useless crap! I cannot believe that an experienced vet could not take a look at an old dog and know that all he needed was pain meds. If they need so much lab work to do their job, then what is vet school for? Shame on them for upsellling a family right before the holidays because they knew we love out pets. They even wanted to charge us to keep our dog overnight, when there is no one there to take care of him. I am disgusted with Deerfield. They only care about money, not about your pet.
