Astronomical prices. Never again. the biggest room they claimed is the smallest room I ever seen and I saw enough hairs on the floor from other dogs. The chair I sit on is old and the plastic part of it falling apart. No room for the second chair. Watch out for their recommendation- more money they generate at astronomical price

I've been bringing my pups here since 1978. Very caring even during the toughest of times. My good old boy is getting close to the time I'll have to let him go--I wouldn't trust anyone else, during this saddest of times. Village Animal Clinic saved his life more than once so that I could have him until a ripe old age. I could never thank them enough. He has been treated, always, with kindness and compassion by people you just know love animals.

I was shocked and amazed at some of the negative comments people have written. My family has been taking our beloved pets here for 17 years now, and I wouldn't change a thing. I have always found the staff here to be caring and compassionate and the prices to be reasonable. One of the Vet Techs, Chris, knows my husband and I and our pets on sight and by name, and while I don't know how he keeps track, always asks us about something we may have mentioned in passing at the last visit. When we had to put my cat BooBoo down, they were incredibly caring through the process. I had come home to find her sick right before closing time at the vet and they directed me to a good ER care in Sandy Springs, and after several months of on-going care, I got a call right away from Chris when he found out we had had to put her to sleep over the weekend. I would not trust my "kids" with anyone else.

I am new to the Dunwoody area and needed to take my geriatric poodle in for a checkup. One of my neighbors suggested I go to Village Animal Clinic. I must say, I was very pleased. The entire office staff was very kind and caring. My doctor was Dr. Winter and she was wonderful and took her time with me after the examination to go over the medications that my pet had been on for years. Turns out that new results showed that two of the meds were counter-reacting each other. Thanks for taking the extra time with me and my Sophie. You are wonderful people.

My family went to Village Animal for at least 10 years owning numerous Maltese, a Samoyed, Lab/Retriever mixes- quite a variety of dog breeds. Check-ups and teeth cleanings always went well. Apparently this was the best care a dog was capable of getting at this clinic because out of 7 of our current dogs, the youngest(just a 3 yr old Maltese pup) died under the care of this vet. This was the only vet this puppy ever saw in it's lifetime; the vet that spayed her and gave her shots etc. The puppy's intestines were blocked (i.e. a hernia, which could have been a result of her being carelessly spayed at this clinic less than a year before her death). If it was in result of something besides spaying complications- the vet should have seen the complications while spaying the dog because the blockage was directly next to the spaying insertion. Basically, there was no good reason why this puppy should have died as early as she did. This vet watched this puppy suffer- throwing up, in a whining pain for two days (after x-rays) ending in a hemorrhaging death in "emergency" surgery **two days after the pup was brought in for x-rays and symptoms related to a complete blockage in her system**. This was an awful, tragic death and I was very surprised and disgusted that it occurred at such a clinic. Needless to say, they fooled me. I would not wait until your pet has a life-threatening problem to realize that this vet is not equipped to care for your pet completely and carefully.

The people here are so caring - we put down our old dog with the Village Animal Clinic and they were kind enough to give him some heavy painkillers (which he needed) and gave us time to say goodbye before they did the procedure very humanely. They are usually fast in seeing our dogs during walk-ins for vaccinations. They spayed my dog and she came out great - although we did have to push back when they wanted to keep her overnight and we didn't think it was necessary. The only thing I don't care for with them is that they don't have very much specialized knowledge - we had to seek further care for a dog with thyroid problems because the vet didn't know enough about thyroid problems to make anything other than a very general diagnosis. Otherwise, a great vet for people with the average dog care needs.

We've been taking our golden here for 6.5 years and I just can't say enough about this group. From the vets to the techs they all do an outstanding job taking care or dog at reasonable prices. I wouldn't go anyplace else.

I have been taking my Dog to this vet for almost 3 years. In the beginning they were fantastic, with a great staff and Vet. lately though they have be become very disorganized and have lost the caring, family atmosphere they used to have. Several months ago they somehow lost most of the records on my Dog. I'm now looking for a new vet...

I have been taking my pets to Village Animal Clinic for 10 years now. I have always been happy with the service. The vets and staff really seem to care. The prices are reasonable too.

I've been taking my pets to Dunwoody Village for about 25 years. Dr. Mayberry and Dr. Asher have been amazing. I especially appreciate Chris and his commitment to the health of my pets. We had a golden retreiver hit by a car and they were so helpful with specialists we needed to help her. Today, she's a healthy 13 year old happy healthy dog thanks to Village Animal Clinic.

I took my cat to one of those "spay/neuter" specialists --- WELL, a few days after her visit there, I was holding her in my lap - it was on a friday at 4:00. There was a large lump in her stomach. Dr. Mayberry had me bring her in "right away". She did emergency surgery - saved my cats life -and she did NOT overcharge me. I will drive back to this vets office - as long as I am able! This is only one of the many examples of good deeds I know of this doctor.

They really care about animals! They are affordable and sincere about their love for animals! We recently moved and went to a vet out here and after a horrible expensive visit with a vet that did not seem to care about our dog we decided we will always make the drive back there.

Can't say enough for this practice. They diagnosed my dog with pancreatitis a little over a year ago and have cared for her with knowledge, compassion and love. We had to put her to sleep one week ago and they were with me all the way, just like family. She passed with dignity and love. They are so caring. I can't say enough about them.

This clinic is by far the best of 8 or 9 others we've been to in the past. The staff sincerely cares about our pets and is not just in it for the money. The vets have made follow-up calls to see how our pets are doing. For the person who said the prices are too high ... it's obvious you haven't been to a vet in Buckhead! We drive 8 miles from Buckhead to Dunwoody to get the great value and service that Village Animal Clinic provides.

My husband and I have been taking our three cats: Scratch, Stonish, and Cleo to Village Animal Clinic for years and are very happy with them. Even though we moved out of the area several years ago and it's less convenient, it's worth the trip. On the two occasions where we had to take Scratch to the Sandy Springs after hours emergency clinic, Village Animal Clinic contacted us the next day to check on our kitty.
