Does anyone have any experiences to share? I am looking for a vet and have heard mixed things about this place. Some good and some really awful.

He's expensive!!! so get ready to fork out the cash. He usually runs test that shouldn't be done, ive took my dog there for different things and it's always "lets do a heartworm test, and lets do an ultrasound", or some other expensive test.
you people are nuts

It depends on which side of this business you're asking about - the day care center side or the vet side. I can't speak to the day care center side but if it's anything like the vet side, it's mediocre at best. That said, we're fortunate to have a vet in the county. He may not be the best, especially for small animals, but he's there if and when we need him.

I have spent a lot of money there but was not very happy with the way i was treated or my animals were treated. I now take my animals to Tazewell Pike Animal Clinic. They are much nicer and seem much more knowledgeable. Plus, the clinic is cleaner. Union County Animal Hospital is filthy inside.

My puppy i got ended up sick had parvo and jared graves told me he had less than 50/50 chance he'd do everything he could but not to get my hopes up bc most of the time dogs don't make it my puppy was under 6wks old so he said his mom prob wasn't vac. since her shots r supposed to cover the puppys for their first 6wks any ways he stayed 2 to 3nights in the hospital out there and he will b 2yrs old in july :) (well in human yrs) i def. recommend dr graves he's awesome

When he first opened it was a nice clinic and a nice experience to go there. Recently it seems like you have to wait a long time before your pet is seen and then you have to wait a long time to check out. I have not been able to figure out why it takes them so long to check you out and process payment but it is agonizingly slow. He advertises "24 hour emergency" services but it is only when it is convenient for him. Most of the time he doesn't answer the phone. If you have a pet emergency after hours be prepared to take your pet to Knoxville. So I'm not really sure what he means when he says "24 hr emergency services." Maybe he means call the Knoxville emergency clinic for 24 hr emergency services.

Union county hospital is a terrible experience for anyone who cares for their animal.Before you take your dog or cat to Union County hospital you should pay a stranger $25 dollars to pet your animal and then tell you to come back and see them so they can pet your animal again and again and charge you $25 dollars each time.Would not go back for any reason.

Go to tazewell pike. Also read some of the posts under the heading Dr. Graves. I'd just shoot my animal before I called him.

Must have been the same vet I took my dog SEYMORE to. He died 17 years later while humping my leg. Vet said it was old age but I think it was a heart attack.cause the vet got his heart worm pills mixed up with his viagra. SEYMORE died smiling ear to ear.

I go as far as getting my animals rabies shots but for the rest they are on their own. Nature will take its course. I developed this way of thinking after paying a $600.00 vet bill to save a cat. Don't get me wrong, I do what I can for my animals but I won't let my wallet get raped again.

brought my pet there when she was having hives instead of finding the cause and do allergy test which he felt wasn't necessary he did steroids on my pet which pretty much covers up main problem and you dont find the cause . My pet became diabetic and had to have insulin shots twice a day special diet and only lived to be 7 ! he is crap and the old lady who works there is very NON sympathetic to anyone very heartless ! he needs to go back to school . he also allows for you to pay in gold which is so unprofessional and trashy ! I would drive 100 miles to a vet before i went there ..........

Unfortunately, I'm related to this idiot.... Through marriage thankfully..... And he could care less about anyone but himself. I can't even begin to tell you how many times his emergency phone rang and he ignored it! If he answered, he would say he was busy or act like he was on his way and then not leave for hours. None of his assistants know what they are doing, he hired people with no degrees or animal background to save money. Unless you are related to him or go to church with him... Cause he is such typical for show only Christian.... Go somewhere else. You aren't important enough to get your animal the treatment they deserve.

Where do I start?? Took my pappillon to him a while back, he was severely tore up. Jared gave him a shot and said bring him back in the morning around 10 if he makes it!!! He died within 2 hours he could have done ALOT more to save him. Fast forward to week before last, took our cat who had been peeing blood badly, he came in SD he has a uti, didn't have a sample or anything just went by our word. Charged $112 to walk in less than 30 seconds and give a shot, he SD if its a URI that will fix it, but you can take a syringe and if he pees bring us a sample we will test it... 3 days later still peeing blood, we took a sample down at noon on a Tuesday, was full of blood, SD Jared was at lunch til around 230. Called the next day, no one was there that could tell me anything, the next day the same, finally on Saturday they put me on hold, hung up on me and put me on hold again just to tell me it was clear and looked good... IMPOSSIBLE!!! It was all blood!!! Had to take him to a different vet today in Gibbs, and come to find out he was a VERY SICK kitty, had we not got him treated soon he would have surely died. He as a very severe bladder infection and kidney infection, to the point he had crystals in his bladder and kidneys almost blocking his urethra which would have killed him!!! Dr. Hibbs spent time examining him, even gave him a iv she administered herself and was sincerely worried about him. Never will I take another one of our babies to Jared graves and if your smart you won't either!!!
