Renton >Cedar River Animal Hospital
Despite tzar_elizabeth, I think she
gotten the name of the vet mixed up with another in the area. Cedar River takes wonderful care of their patients. They have general respect for all that come in. By experiance most dogs have a tendancy to get anxiety when they are away from their owners and can mess in their kennels. I highly reccomend this clinic. Please, don't let one bad review change your plans of bringing your pet in. I recently had to bring my pet in for a euthenasia and being the hardest thing I have ever done before they even wept and shared their sympathy with me. You can feel safe with them. The providers are highly educated and continue their education to make sure their patients get on going care they need.
Thanks for reading!
Long time client. I've been bringing my cats to Cedar River for 18 years and the most cats I've had at one time was 5. They are always so caring and accommodating. I've recommended them to several friends, neighbors and family and will continue to do so. I feel that the doctors there have a lot of knowledge and experience and they are very compassionate. I recently had to put down one of my cats and they made a very difficult situation comforting and I have no regrets with the way everything was handled.
Highly recommended. I've been taking my shihtzu to Cedar River since we brought him home 4 years ago. I have always been pleased with the staff - the receptionists, nurses and doctors. They always call a few days after any appointment just to see if everything is ok, and it is not too difficult to get an appointment immediately. Most memorable is the time I was referred to an eye specialist on a Saturday, and granted we had to drive to Portland due to an emergency situation, the doctor at Cedar River made the experience as simple as possible (they contacted the specialists, asked them to remain open to wait for us, printed directions and called us later that night to see how my boy was). I cringe, however, everytime it's time to pay, but I would pay any amount for my little boy (and I always believe you get what you pay for)!
Kind & Caring Vet. Our family has taken our animals to Cedar River Animal Hospital for two generations. My parents took our dogs there growing up and I currently take my two dogs and cat. Both vets are very kind and compassionate. I have had to put down two dogs throughout the years and they made the experience as good as possible. They do not put pressure on you to get every test like some vets and they respect your decisions as a pet owner. The techs are great too, very upbeat and positive. I have reccommended this vet to several of my neighbors who all have been happy. It seems a bit pricy but aren't they all??? I would not hesitate taking your dog or cat here!
Feces Anyone?. This boarding facility I have used for my Rhodesian Ridgeback several times. I kept noticing her bed we brought reaked of urine and was always smeared with feces. And my dog smelled like she was sleeping in her own mess EVERYTIME I picked her up. My husband and I would call everyday to make sure she was eating and given her toys, they constantly lied to us, we would find out when picking her up that the toys we left for her were never used (dingo's). Every day we would call, "yes she got her dingo today" and not one was used when we got our bag back. I have a sinking feeling my dog was abused at this place too, she has a few injuries like chipped teeth and bruises I noticed after boarding her. The Vet of this place tells us that they dont have the time to give my dog personal attention (hence the feces/urine smell) and maybe I needed to go to Petco in the future. What a dumb moron, Petco doesnt even take dogs outside to urinate. Bottom line: They can't even keep the dogs clean. Disgusting. They also will lie and tell you whatever you want to hear. You can not trust them.
Fantastic Vet Facility.
I grew up with animals and love them. My two dogs ( 4 year old GSD/Husky and 6 month old small breed mix) are my children and where I take them for vet care is very important to me. (My sister is a veterinarian in Ohio.) I wanted to find a vet near my office and the Renton Highlands are a bit sketchy. I took my 6 month old puppy (small breed) to be spayed at Ceder River Animal Hospital. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The office is very clean. Dr. Nicholas is a very friendly and outgoing doctor. He just returned from a trip to South Africa where his patients included a baby hippo, a cheetah and a rhino. He addressed all of my concerns and I felt very comfortable leaving my puppy there. At the end of the day I picked up my sleepy puppy. She was spayed and they used dissolving sutures, so no need to go and have stitches physically removed. She also had two stubborn baby teeth extracted, a rabies vaccine and was microchipped. My puppy came out sore as expected, but is recovering just fine. I would highly recommend Dr. Nicholas and his team.
**On a side note, while fostering a GSD for the SPDR over the summer, a team member at Ceder River Animal Hospital removed stitches for me with no questions asked on a female foster that they didn't spay. I appreciate it when those in the service industry go the extra mile like this!!
