I dropped my puppy off at Dr. Slaughter's office earlier today to get fixed. I have only been to him one other time and that was for a kitty eye infection. Is he any good? I guess I am just worried about my baby and need some peace of mind.

He is ok. Not as good as his father. His father would do anything for you any time but not John it's during businees hr,only for him. But he is a good Vet. your puppy will be ok.

Dr Slaughter' s father was more of a vet to farm animals and he done a great job. He would come and check your cattle no matter how cold in winter. Usually had a t shirt on and those bibbed overalls. Always smiling and never in a hurry. I remember one time when one of our cows gave birth to a calf in the middle of a cold winter. My dad and I saved the calf but looked liked there was another one that never materialized. The sac just laid there in the cold barn. Dr Slaughter came by and said that the sac was the uterus that had came out. He picked it up and somehow put it back into the cow. That cow bore many more calves. He was so great.
And from what I hear his son is very good with small animals which I think was his main goal in vet school.
Just recalling some things

And as for small pets, the owners will never really trust totally the vet that is taking care of them but I suppose some do.

We had our female puppy fixed about a 6 weeks ago here. The whole deal was very traumatic for puppy, but the next day she was back to her old self. She's completely healed from the surgery now, and running wide open again. Doc and staff did pretty good work.

I have had two dogs fixed there both of them did just fine! They are a good bunch of people. They get overwhelmed at times with the amount of people bringing their fur kids in. So remember patience when you go!!

If you can get past his receptionist, you will be doing great. I had 5 bags of cat food once, 20 lbs each that I was going to donate to The Abandoned Angels. I was told to take it to Slaughters and drop it off and they would pick it up. When I got there, I was in hurry and all I wanted to know was where to put the cat food. Man!! She cut me off at the knees. She told me in no certain terms that I would just have to wait my turn. There was one man with a dog. She hadn't even started to wait on him and all I needed was a tiny bit of info. I left and arranged to drop off the food directly to the lady from Abandoned Angels. I will never go back even if it cost me a fortune for my animals.

I think your puppy will be fine, they are a really good bunch of people there. Dr. Slaughter has always taken the time to answer my questions about my dogs, and I am an information-addict when it concerns dogs and their health, so I'm sure I get quite tedious with my questions, but they take the time to answer.

As far as "getting past the receptionist," give me a break. Some days I've been there, that place gets busier than Wal-mart after Thanksgiving. They have clipboards with short forms to put down your information and what you came there for and with which pet, if you brought one. Just because you came in to "drop something off" or "pick something up" doesn't mean there aren't three or four of us already there to do the same thing and are waiting our turn, too. If you want to pay 2 to 3 times the vet fees and product mark-ups at other places, that's your choice, but their prices cannot be beat.

I have been to Dr. Slaughters many times. I also have had to deal with the receptionist. I took off work and went in with a sick dog and she told me I would have to make an appointment. She said it would be the next week before I could get an appointment. Very smart assed about it.

I really think john is a wonderful vet for small animals. as far as his office help yes i have to agree she is a little wired. i mean ya we all have our moments but everyday..... i have even talked to his tech's about her they even say that she is that way, so why does a business owner keep her, makes you wonder. otherwise i think he has a great and caring staff...

I have always taken my animals there but my dad did too. I for one like the receptionist I have never had a problem with her yes she can come off a little harsh at times but like 2manydogs2 mentioned that place gets busy quick. I have been there with my moms dogs who was fatally wounded ( but lived) and she took one look and took me back and even tried to assure me that all would be ok. I like Jeff too never had any problems with geting my animals fixed there the dogs all came home happy and fine no infections the cats sort of layed around for a few days but I think that is just in a cats nature. So sont worry about your doggie it will be just fine. Lets us know how it is doing.

I took my doggie to another vet (Church Hill)- that was much more expensive... I had an appointment (had to take off work)- I had to wait and wait and wait and wait- their waiting room was even smaller and more chaotic than Slaughter's and not any nicer! I had my doggie spayed and guess what- her stitches became infected and I took her to Slaughter's for treatment; they were great; took my baby in, looked at her and prescribed antibiotics, which were very reasonably priced... didn't charge me a penalty fee either for not getting the spay there! I learned my lesson- I'll stick with Slaughter. The "receptionist" does a fantastic job or she wouldn't be there and she has always treated me well. Also, I liked Dr. Babbs.

I did meet the vet at the other office (it was required) it cost me 40.00 to "meet the vet", since my doggie didn't get her vaccationations there- before they would do the spay-- which did I say was waayyy more expensive, not counting the $40.00 meeting! Their office staff at CH wasn't cheery and overly friendly either; they were OK but you could tell they'd rather be anywhere else and that people bothered them.

You can't beat Slaughter's service, prices or their staff.

Excuse me!! Did I not say that there was one man with one dog. It would not have killed her to tell me where the box was to put the stuff. I'm not the only one that I've heard complain about her rude behavior.

With you being such a good, warm, caring person I would think you could have waited while she took care of the "one man" in front of you.

I'm none of what you mentioned but I will say that the lady up front is a hateful ass.

How's that suit you?

We've had this discussion about Toni before on Topix and it was pulled due to it getting so ugly.
Look, she is doing her job and apparently John has no complaints about her work. Leave the lady alone. Let's not start on her again. Each of us has our own thoughts about her, so just keep them to yourselves.
Walk in her shoes and you might have a different opinion about her.

I would like to know why I am charged an office call to get a kennel cough shot and a provo shot when I don't see the Dr or use the office . They charged me an Office call and a half since I have two dogs. Most places don't charge an office call unless you see the Doc.

Well they stayed after hours to take care of my cat that was in a terrible accident. Luckly it wasn't as bad as I thought and they charged me less to take care of him and do x-rays than Mason charges just to drive to my farm.
I think I can put up with a b*tchy lady for such good prices and a healthy animal, especially these day and times.

we HAVE HAD THIS TALK ABOUT TONI BEFORE and why John keeps her amazes me I guess maybe since he's always in the back maybe he doesnt realize what a hateful person she is.......... It really hurts his business her being there and why he doesnt talk to her i will never understand when we as pet owners talk our sweet little pets in they are usually sick and we are worried about them so why would she be so rude to us. as far as your pet being taken care of i think your in good hands
