Don't let your boobs hang out and nobody will look

Hell no!!! They're crooks, and couldn't care less whether your pet lives or dies!! Just let me know if you're interested in the info I have. They may be cheaper, but it's quality you look for in the life or death of your pet.

I did like Dr. Collins, but his staff is making me question if its time for our many many animals to find a new Dr.

The latest was my sisters male cat. She took him in to get snipped, and he almost died. She came home with him, and he started running a fever, and wouldn't eat. Then, she saw blood all over the house. She looked at her cat, and his stitches had come loose from inside, and a part of his nuts were hanging outside of the skin. Preston was the surgeon. Now, so not only were they careless about his health as far as him getting an infection, but also careless with how they stitched him.
My moms dog died from a snake bite wound on a Saturday around 4:00 in the afternoon. She called the emergency number over and over. Not one person called her back until opening Monday morning. By then, her dog was long in the grave.
I see Whitney up at Valley Vet. She only sees you by appointment, but it's well worth it because you are not waiting in a stinky waiting room for hours.
That was my personal story with Joeys. I waited for hours to get an ultrasound done on my dog to see how many pups that she was carrying. Before the wait, I made sure that they had the machine there, since it was a Saturday. The receptionist said, yes, we should be able to get it done today. So I waited. I saw Preston, and told him what I wanted done. He INSISTED that the X-Ray was better, after begging him for the ultrasound. Long story short, nothing showed on the X-ray, and after it was over, I asked about an ultrasound again. FINALLY, he told me that they couldn't do it that day because Joey had the machine with him, and that was his day off. AND THE SOB CHARGED ME FOR THE X-RAY WITH NOTHING ON IT! We didn't know any more about my dog going out as we did going in. Three hours wasted and $40 broker!
But yes, I would recommend Whitney in a heartbeat. Any strays that walk by, she gets them neutered or spayed and let's them stay at the office. Very friendly, and very thorough.

I love Whitney! She's excellent & caring with the pets. Plus, her office, exam rooms, etc are spotless!

I went to Joey for years, until an encounter with Dr. Preston. I had a Manx that had gotten pregnant & as soon as she weened the kittens, Joey put her on birth control until I could have her spayed. She gained a lot of weight & I didn't know if she'd gained it from the meds or if she'd gotten pregnant before the kittens were weened. I took her for the appointment & gave strict instructions to check to see if she was pregnant & if she was to call before they did anything. She was & he didn't. She was in critical condition because she was due in about a week when they aborted the kittens. She was there several days & passed away. Be called that morning to tell me & asked if I wanted to come get her or did I want him to take care of her. I went to get her. He had her in a box & slammed it on the bench outside & walked back in without a word! TOTALLY RUDE!!!!?

The one on Town Mtn is Fred Lawson. He's good, but an older gentleman & only takes small animals.

The one in Prestonsburg, going toward the Mtn Pkwy is Dr. Ousley. I really like him, as well.

I agree with your posts the girls who work there are very rude but Joey is an excellent caring person. I don't think he realizes how his employees act because when they are around him they suck up. I have first hand experience what goes on in the back some of the girls cuss the pets though no abuse was never done its bad enough to hear them cuss the animals to try and get control of them. Joey does a great job as a vet he saved my dog and I was very thankful but I was shocked to hear these girls act this way and they also talked about some of the owners of pets not professional and maybe someone needs to tell Joey I'm sure he will access the situation .

I've been going to Joey for years and he's never failed my pets.He's come in after hours, come to my house and always returned my calls. One day I had my dog there and Joey was examining her and I suddenly got light-headed and nauseous. I asked Joey if I could have a drink of water as I had taken some medicine on an empty stomach and was quite nauseous. He said, "Of course", and left the room and returned a short time later with a container of juice and a pack of fruit crackers. He could simply have given me some water which would have been expected. I am very pleased with Joey, his fellow vets there and I try to cut the girlss out front some slack. They deal with the public and especially the 'parents' of sick pets who are worried about their 'baby' and are impatient at times.

The girls who work at the desk are nothing but rude a$$es. I even called Joey and told him how hateful and rude they were to me and he didn't believe me. He totally sided with them as if I had a reason to lie on them! I no longer take my dog to him.

The Wellness Center in downtown Pikeville is the best!
