I can't say enough about the staff at Adobe Vet Clinic. Your pet is in loving hands and your pocket book isn't empty
Adobe Vet Clinic is an incredible practice! Dr. Phil recently did a bladder stone removal surgery on our older dog. She was plagued with frequent urination and uncomfortable car rides. After a swift diagnosis and an incredibly informative appointment with Dr Phil and his team our old gal was on the fast track to being Healed. The day of our appt Dr Phil and his amazing team put our mind at ease explaining the entire procedure and path of recovery. As all owners do, we were worried about our pup but all the time knowing she was in great hands. When we picked her up after surgery Dr Phil explained how the entire surgery went. He took his time explaining all potential complications, answering all our questions and putting our minds at ease. His recommendations for changes in food to prevent this from happening again we’re extremely helpful. Thanks to Adobe Vet Clinic, Dr.Phil and all his great staff for taking such great care of our old gal! We won’t ever consider using a different vet!
Dr. Greg Heitman and his staff are the absolute best. They saved my dogs life. We have 2 Miniature Dachshunds puppies. Oscar & Meyer. They are brothers and are 4 months. They have had 2 rounds of shots and were over due for their 3rd and final. We noticed Oscar (who is the Dapple colored) was not acting like himself last week. We took him to Adobe Veterinary Clinic on Tuesday. I had no appointment and walked in. I was very emotional . They could tell right away that Oscar was in pretty bad shape as was I. Dr. Greg took us back immediately. Oscar ended up testing positive Parvo. Dr. Greg had me go get Meyer to have him tested also. Meyer was negative. They had to keep Oscar for 6 days. They let us visit and gave us constant updates on his status. I am happy to say our little boy came home last night and is doing excellent. There is no way Oscar would have survived without Adobe Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Greg Heitman and their compassionate and caring staff. Will never take our dogs anywhere else. The final cost was much less then we were originally quoted or expected. A very special thanks to Barbra.
I recently brought in my dog for a treatment, and the staff was exceedingly pleasant to work with. The doctors were all very cooperative and made the whole process very easy, given I am always very cautious with whose hands I put my pet in. The employees of Adobe more than settled any prior concerns of mine regarding going to a new place to care for my dogs. Excellent service and a now happy, well-cared for pet. I would strongly recommend the Adobe for those in search of a veterinary clinic.
This establishment truly deserves a 10 star rating. The staff is friendly, Doctors are amazing. They truly care for the well being of your animals. I can't say enough and I'm truly grateful for this establishment being here. Thank you all so much for all you do!
