Given events and news about Burnett and Kay, past experience with some of the uppity vets and employees (not to mention ridiculous prices) at Douglasville Hospital on Hwy 92, are there any good vets in the vicinity or must one travel to another county?

There are several excellent Veterinarians in the area. Douglasville Veterinary Hospital on Fairburn Road is owned by Dr. Phil Lukert. He is an excellent veterinarian. He has a staff of good ones too.

I have been to Dr. Lukert's location on multiple occasion's as mentioned in previous post. Their prices are off the charts and I did NOT find them amiable in the least. I have had pets for well over 50 years and done enough research to have at least a little knowledge. Clientele knowledge and Dr. Lukert's clinic do not coincide.

I perfer the same one as mentioned above, Douglasville Veterinary Hospital on Fairburn Road. They are excellent and not in the political and criminal mumbo jumbo. They are the only ones I will use.

Trajedy,
I guess you didn't read my posts. I have mentioned them twice now with specifics. You must have your eyes closed.

Excuse me when I wrote that post your post was not the one above it but I suppose you posted while I was typing. Just trying to be helpful.

I use Maggie Mercer on Hwy 5 in front of Publix. Douglas County Animal Hospital. They are pricey, but she is an excellant vet. Her office staff are wonderful. I've been taking my babies there ever since she opened.

I have taken my pets to Douglasville Veterinary Hospital on Fairburn Road for years. I love those people and my pets have received the best possible care. A couple of years ago I had to put one of my pets down and the compassion and care I received was way beyond expectations. I'm not sure about their prices, however, everything they have done for my pets has been well worth it. They have had some of the same staff for years. One of my neighbors works there, has for years, and absolutely loves those people.

Pain, sorry. You won't be interested in my above post. I think we all have different experiences. I know that Froggers loves Dr. Mercer, but I had a very unsettling experience with her. A lot of people love her. I didn't because she was treating one of my pets and my pet needed a return visit. Upon the return visit, she asked me what she had done on the first visit because she had not written anything down in the chart. She laughed it off. Then she left my pet and me waiting in one of the exam rooms for approx. a half hour without anyone letting us know when she would be back. We walked out of the exam room and left. I am hoping that was an isolated event. You may just need to try out a couple. Good luck.

Price not, the Animal Hospital on Fairburn road is my choice. Last year when I was there I had a really, really hot vet look at the dog.

The one on Hwy 5 used to be good but they got so big, prices went WAY up, and you can't see Lukert anymore, always someone new.

Dr. Galleger (spelling?) has only been with Douglas Oaks Animal clinic on Hwy 5 since Dr.Verner left and Dr. Morgan retired. Since then, their prices have gone way up. I am going to start using Dr. Verner, I know he has opened an office on Fairburn Rd. in the Publix shopping center. I think Galleger has only been at Douglas Oaks about 6 months or maybe a year. Where was he before that, does anyone know? He's a nice man but I have more than one animal and I take them to the vet whenever they need to go so I can't afford to use Galleger anymore.

Even though there is the drug issue with Dr. Kay, we have used his clinic for several years and have always been pleased with the service.

vet experience, you are actually going to support a vet clinic where the owner has been charged with horrific crimes, he works while drunk, and supports his wifes drug habit? Really? Let's just hope their next "accident" is not your animal. Or maybe they can start using your pets name to write controlled substance prescriptions to traffic!
