Yes I have heard of them, and have been there but will never go again. I have friends who have lost pets there. I go to Dr. Streit in Princeton, or Dr. Brown on 460. Streit is my favorite. He loves animals it isn't just a business to him..

I believe a vet is just like a family physician, everyone has their preference. I have gone to Dr Reynolds, Dr Brown for years when Dr Steit was there. But aftre moving close to their office, I have been going to Green Valley for years and usually see Dr Michelle Postle and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Love Dr Pence too. If one of my dogs gets sick, they get me in ASAP. I found their prices to be comperable if not a bit less than the others.

Anyone may have a bad experience anywhere in any service industry. Please keep that in mind. But for me, all the vets around here are good. If your beloved animal is real sick or they don't know, Green Valley animal hospital dosen't experiment on your pet. They'll refer and assit in getting your pet to the Vet school at VT.

I don't know about the other vet, but I wouldn't go to Pence. I would go to Beckley first.

We have never had a problem with Dr. Pence. He treated us and our pets like family, and made arrangements for us to pay when we didn't have all of the cash needed when our animal was very sick. The staff there is very friendly. I, however, do not like one of the vets there. Dr. Pence is the best one there but he mostly does all the surgeries now. If you go, try to see Dr. Postel (i dont think thats spelled right)

I had a friend who took their dog to be neutered, and it died on the table.. They said they must have used too much of the stuff that they put them to sleep with. My friend is suing them as it was a young registered dog they had paid over 200.00 for.

I know of others but not personally, so I won't comment on those.

thanks robin, i think ive heard enough to not take her there, i also paid alot for my registered great dane, i was just needing her ears cropped but not very many people around here know how to do them correctly on danes, and its not a procedure you want to take your puppy to if they dont know what they are doing.. i usually go to east kentucky animal clinic, so i guess thats where she will be going, its just a long drive.

I really feel sorry for those of you who have nothing better to do besides be negative. Have you ever heard of 'real life'? All vet clinics have negative experiences, that comes w/ the responsibility of being a doctor & taking lives into their hands. Unfortunately negativity tends to drown out the positive. I'm a long time client GVAH & wouldn't have it any other way. ALL the doctors there are sincere & truly work for the love of pets, not the money. If you haven't heard, they were recently noted for consumers favorite choice in the Dispatch, check it out. Oh, & Robin, tell your friend to get a job & stop robbing people out of her own pity.

I like them.. I had one of my cats neutered there and my family has all their vet needs taken care of there. They are really inexpensive and I have no complaints. Sometimes animals just die it happens. Like people they can die from simply being put to sleep for a surgery. I moved down to VA a few months ago and found a sick kitten and took it to a vet down here and they gave me meds and never said anything about it dying and it died a few days later. So it does happen alot.

yea i try to take that into consideration when reading these, i know you cant save every animal that walks through the door, and its something that has probably happend everywhere, ive just never been there before and im just a little skiddish about letting anyone crop her ears that i dont know of, i know its a complicated procedure and ive just heard so many horror stories about vets cutting too much off like a pit bull, and she is a great dane they are supposed to have large ears even after cropping, im going to be driving at least an hr anyway so i still think im going to take her to the vet i am familiar with, i might try them out later for something else but like i said not everyone can crop great danes correctly, so i was relying on feedback. but thank you for something positive.:-)

You're welcome, thanks for thanking me :) I understand the trust between you & your vet, it's definitely important. I have been able to develop that as well & wanted to share w/ you.
I wish you & your pup the best, they're a beautiful breed! Let us know how it goes :)

I a have chihuahua who is like my 4th child. A lot of other vets seem not to like this breed of dog. I took mine to Veterinary Associates when I first purchased her for a check-up and shots. Then she injured her leg and I took her back. One of the Vets there said it would be $500 to operate on it. He was not very caring in examining her and had little tolerance of a small dog. Matter of fact when he twisted her leg I heard it pop. That woke me up quickly, I said I would never go back. I called Dr.Pence and took her there. He was $200 cheaper for the surgery. He did a great job. Where my dog had to put all her weight on her other leg and depend on it, she injured the other leg. I took her back to Dr. Pence and he repaired this leg too. I think they are great, cheaper than other vets, and very caring with animals. Now my dog runs, jumps and is doing great. Thanks to Dr. Pence.

He neutered my cat and when I brought him home he passed a large blood clot which practically killed him. Pence claimed he had a uti that morning before surgery. why would he do surgery if my cat had a uti? a couple months later I received a card for his check up and when I called they said "Yeah, that's the one he nicked the uretha on". Thank God Dr. Streit was available the night of the clot incident. Pence is not a vet, but a butcher. He'll be judged on everything he has done for money.
