Don't believe it until I see it. He's a good guy and a good vet. He doesn't take anything and has a strong personality but a super nice guy if you are nice to him. I don't believe it until I see it. If he did, then something happened or someone provoked him I can about guarantee that!!!

A good guy and a good vet? I couldn't disagree with you more. He's cocky and arrogant and thinks he knows it all. He doesn't care about the animals. Don't even get me started. Sheesh.

Yes I said a good guy and a good vet and yes he does care about the animals.He has been the vet for my whole family for years, our pets have done wonderful under his care.Also a ton of friends and people that I know take their animals to him. Some complain only because they are jealous. He is successful, has a successful business and knows what he is doing. He is compassionate with the animals, he is compassionate with the animals owners too, I know for fact because he always has been with my family, friends and I. It all depends on how you approach him and how you come across with him. He has a strong personality which is rare these days, but needed to survive in this crazy world. He is a good person and doesn't start anything, but doesn't take it either. I see nothing wrong with that. Just because he is a Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine does not make him any less human than you or I. I'm sure you've never made a mistake have any of you? Yeah right. No on is untouchable or invincible, we all make mistakes professionals or ordinary people, either way mistakes happen. I like Dr. Rasnic and his staff and I along with others can tell you that you are wrong when you say he doesn't care. Sit outside of his establishment one day for just a few hours and look at the business he gets, then tell me no one likes him! How funny you are!

Oh and by the way. Nothing that any of you low class, trash talking people can say on here will get under his or his family's skin. Try all you want but they are strong willed and have more to do and think about in life than a bunch of low class-trash talkers on topix! hahahaha!

Well, you were defending him pretty well until you decided to add this little tirad and managed to make yourself look like a crazy person.

I have had experiences taking my dog to him too, and no, he wasn't compassionate with her at all. And he wasn't even remotely nice to me. So you must be someone in his "social circle" if he gave you and your animals good treatment. But as for me and some others I have talked to, he has NOT been a good vet nor a nice man. An no, I'm not jealous of the bloated, big-mouthed drunk. I don't know anyone that would be.

And you don't know me or what kind of person I am. Do you always insult people that disagree with what you think or was it just because you could do it here anonymously? Your post is the one that looks low class and trashy.

You can think what you want about me because I will never change my mind about the kind of vet and man he is. Like I said, he's a cocky, arrogant, know-it-all that wouldn't help anyone or anything if he wasn't getting paid a nice big chunk to do it. And I'll voice my opinion anytime I can when asked about finding a good vet.

Oh and speaking of low class and trashy, look at your precious boy, he couldn't even stay home to get sloshed, he had to go do it in public and make a pure ass out of himself and get taken to the pokey for his disgusting behavior. Real nice guy that one. Hahahahaha!

So, now that I've had time to ponder all this, I regret that I sounded so harsh in my other post. If he's done a good job for you and your animals then great. I didn't get the same treatment that you did and therefore have no respect for him. So we'll have to just agree to disagree about this.

However, I shouldn't have posted while I was angry and I apologize for that.

Good luck to you as well as to Dr. Rasnic.
Just my opinion

I don't have a good opinion for Dr. Rasnic or his staff. My son and I took our dog to him after the dog had been attacked by a larger dog. His staff worker grabbed the scared and shaking dogs leash and dragged him across the room and put him in a pen. My son and I were in disbelief. After a few minutes we decided to take the dog to the other vet in Duffield. The staff member didn't even hook the leash to the dogs collar. She made a slip knot with it and again began dragging the dog across the room. My 13 year old son yelled at her to stop dragging his dog telling her that he was hurt and scared. He then ran over and picked his dog up and told her she was mean and cruel. I will never take another animal there. No reason for such cruelty to the animal. Traumatic for the dog and my son. Unreasonable!!!

Let me clarify a few things for each and everyone of you here. You have no idea what you are talking about. He is a good vet, good with animals and he does care, so does his staff.

My dog had a sudden abscess that appeared over night and kept getting bigger and bigger within 3 days it was the size of a large golf ball. I didn't know what it was. At 2 am she was in such pain that I drove 2 hours to a 24/7 Emergency Vet Clinic. Once there I was told that it was an abscess and they would sedate, lance, drain then stitch. This vet in Knoxville who was supposed to be so certified put my dog under and within 10 minutes comes out, while he is still under and tells me its Cancer. Her opinion my dog was not a good candidate to even try and save or to pursue treatments with. She said she could do no biopsies to tell me what kind of Cancer it was, benign or malignant. She coldly looks at me and says, Do you want me to let her up? I replied, What do you mean let her up? She wanted to go ahead an Euthanize my dog without even giving her a chance. Now what kind of Vet is that? That cost me $400 just for THAT.$400 for NOTHING.

I brought her home with no meds or anything and kept her comfortable until she could see Dr. Rasnic the next morning. What was his response? Biopsies to see what kind of Cancer we were dealing with, X Rays, Blood Work the whole works. So we did it all. He was not pleased that this so called Vet in Knoxville who supposedly had such high credentials would want to put a dog down without giving it a fighting chance and neither were my family or I. The biopsies came back, it showed exactly what kind of Cancer we were dealing with and we sat down and talked over a plan. He performed surgery on my dog and she healed very well. She was sent home with pain meds and antibiotics and he saw her once a week. She did very well for a few months but the cancer started to come back. He had warned me that it may come back and that he could make no promises but if I loved this dog this much to give her a fighting chance, he would fight with us til the end and I agreed. A second surgery was performed. She did great again, she underwent treatments, her pain was controlled and he saw her weekly up until the very end. He spoke with me about Euthanizing her IF the time came, but said it was MY call. All that he did for her gave me 8 more months with her. She became vibrant again, lived out the rest of her days happy and she fought! She fought to live! Sadly the Cancer spread to her spleen and caused an Anemic disorder that NO VET could cure or help. After 8 months of this, treatments, office visits, 2 surgeries, cases of special dog food for animals with chronic illness' I was only out of pocket $700. NOW tell me that he does NOT care and that he does not try? The first vet cost $400 just to want to put my baby down and deprive us of even trying. Dr. Rasnic gave us 8 more months that I will always cherish.

The day she passed in my arms, I was told to bring her in. They kept her in the cooling unit for 4 days so that I could make preparations for her grave sight and had a casket ordered and delivered. They also bathed her, groomed her and made her look beautiful and placed and posed her in the casket for me. Something I could have not done myself. They didn't charge me for the 4 days of holding her nor did they charge for the grooming and prepping. Am I in his social click? NO I am not. I just know how to approach people, how to talk to them and how to get along with them. He said my dog became his buddy and made a special place in his heart.

As for his wife leaving him. Have you ever stopped to wonder that maybe thats having a stressful impact on him too? Do you ever wonder if seeing so many sick animals, strays and abused animals. Losing them no matter how hard you try and having to Euthanize them, do you ever stop to think that it might eventually take a toll on a persons mind, heart and emotions? Well I do. I am sure its hard!

His personal life has nothing to do with hes Veterinarian skills. You all sound like a hate mob out to get him for personal reasons.

To those of you who have took your animals there and think that a leash or that it appeared that your dog was being dragged, it may have appeared that way, but have you ever really spent time in a Veterinarians office behind the scenes? Its not all peaches and cream. Not for the animals, the doctor or the staff, trust me I know because I have spent a lot of time behind the scenes. Things have to be done to pets that the pet nor the owners really understand unless its broken down and explained. The pets only see treatment to help them as, you're hurting me when truly they are not being hurt at all. Taking your pet into an environment like this, their instinct automatically kicks in causing them to become nervous, just as a human does when they enter a doctors office or hospital for a procedure. The most important thing is that your pet is being treated and well on its way to recovery. No its not pretty to see sometimes, but sometimes it has to be done. Have you ever suffered a dog bite from a scared dog? Had a cat attack you because they didn't want treatment? Been kicked by a horse or bitten by a horse you were only trying to help, or even kicked by a cow while treating them? I'm sure you've not. So until you pass judgment that Vets are too rough with the animals, you must stop and understand that its not playtime or cuddle time when you enter a Veterinarians office with your pet. They do what needs to be done. Just like with a child, parents hate to see their babies get their shots, they whine and complain that the doctor was too rough and so on, the same thing with pets. Just be thankful that there are people out there in this profession that cared enough about animals to go to school for so long to help them. I can assure you that you do have to care about animals, love them and have a great interest in them before you would even consider this occupation and spend so much time in college to do such a job. Dr. Rasnic is not a bad person. He knows how to handle animals. If any of you truly understand, the handler has to show the dog or cat who is the dominate one in the situation, so that the animal will submit and the doctor and staff can treat it. If you do not show the animal who the dominate one is in the situation, things can get ugly fast! He also does not expect a chunk of money and is not overpriced, he's actually very reasonable on prices and will help in situations if you don't have the money up front. So there another reason to tell you HE DOES CARE! Someone I know had 4 purebred puppies several years ago. At the time money was tight and she could not afford their first set of shots for another couple of weeks. During this time the puppies developed the Parvo Virus. No Vet in the area or surrounding area would see the puppies or try to help her. They told her it was a lost cause. Her last call was to Dr. Rasnic. He said bring them in asap. He quarantined the puppies and kept them for 14 days doing all that he could. He knew upfront her financial situation and said don't even worry about that. On the 14th day he called for her to pick the puppies up. He had gotten rid of the virus which is something very, very rare. I am proud to say these puppies are now 10 year old dogs. It took her almost 6 months to pay the bill, which wasn't that high, but he never said a word. So yea he doesn't care does he? NO she was not in his click or affiliated with anyone in his click, she had never met him before in her life!

I agree with pfffft. Tim doesn't care about the money. He does it to work with the animals and treat them. I honestly hate when people bring another personal life into this. You guys are pathetic. Why don't you come out of that fake name and say who you are if you really dont care. P A T H E T I C. Tims a overall good guy. You obviously don't know him if you think he's cocky.

I dot need or want to get to now him...and i would be rich if I had a dime for every time I've heard someone say he was arrogant (or something similar) when he runs his big, loud, rude, no-it-all mouth at ball games. He may be the best vet in the world. I can't argue that, because I don't know. But, if he acts anything like he does at some of these public events I've heard him at then it's no wonder people are talking negatively about him. Lots of people yell at games, get excited, and have different opinions, but he takes it to a whole new level.
