★★★★★ Great staff and professional and comfortable environment.My Toy poodle Rambo got into rat poison and they saved his side!!!!ReneeRenee B.Renee B. ★★★★★ They took such good care of my 6 month old. They were fair, honest and made sure you understood everything that was at hand. If need be, I would go back again if an issue comes up again. The staff was super nice and caring!!Tami S.Tami S. ★★★★★ I had an EMERGENCY with my dog Romeo in on Sunday because he had started vomiting and had explosive bloody diarrhea. I called and they told me to bring him in. They did a thorough exam and we decided to give him fluids and injection for diarrhea and something for the vomiting. He started feeling better by that evening. WellPet actually called me during the next day to check on him. I was so pleased that they called me to check on my baby!! That was my first appointment with them. I will be using them again. Thanks WellPet for making my baby feel better!!.Julie Gail J.Julie Gail J. ★★★★★ They are not the cheapest, however, the customer service is the best! Also very friendly vets, tech and desk staff.

They were gentle with both of us during this experience.Kennedy C.Kennedy C. ★★★★★ Fantastic Pet CareOn Feb 5, 2024; on the advice of a much trusted veterinarian who previously cared for my dogs, I contacted and visited the Well Pets Veterinary Clinic to get urgent care for one of my Chiweenie mix dogs who was very sick and suffering intensely.From the time I called the clinic, throughout the visit and  until the Vet-tech held the door for me to exit (with my dog, Silk, in crate), we received exceptional care and service from every staff member we contacted.Doctor Miller was absolutely caring and thorough.  And while she pulled out all the stops she could to assess the issues, short of a miracle, Silk could not be saved...  Thankfully, however, Dr. Miller made her as comfortable as possible so I could take her home to spend one last night with her sibling's and parents.  For that I am truly grateful.Thank you Well Pets!Phillip J.Phillip J. ★★★★★ Love everyone here.

I highly recommend this clinic.Melissa L.Melissa L. ★★★★★ Very caring, very helpful.Michael H.Michael H. ★★★★★ I am so thankful for Well Pets today. We have used Well Pets in the past, but have recently been using a vet closer to our house and jobs for convenience.Our beagle was diagnosed with Lymphoma in August and this week has been really rough for him. Watching him suffer this morning was heartbreaking and I did not even go to work because I was so worried about him…but even after describing his condition (unable to walk comfortably/feet sliding because he’s too weak, breathing struggles, could not use the bathroom comfortably, had to be carried up the stairs, did not have the desire to come out of his crate), our *normal/now FORMER* vet office still told us they couldn’t see us until tomorrow, and would only be able to squeeze us in today “if he got any worse”, and it would just be an appointment to be checked before they would even agree to euthanize, (even though they diagnosed him with cancer 3 months ago). Our dog could NOT wait another day. They also did not give us the level of empathy we deserved when we called today and never return our calls when requesting refills for his pain meds and steroids. I’m sure they were following protocol and doing what they could….but honestly just felt and sounded like they didn’t care.However, when we called WELL PETS, they listened to our concerns over the phone, told us to come as soon as we needed to, made us feel comfortable bringing him in, let us come to the side door, did not make us feel awkward for crying hysterically, offered to get his paw prints for us, offered us treats to give him, did not make us feel guilty if we needed to walk out at anytime during the process, allowed us to say goodbye to him, explained things thoroughly, told us they were so sorry we had to go through this, allowed us to pay quickly beforehand so we didn’t have to pay after we left, AND we were in and out within 35 minutes since it’s a weekday. Well Pets made this awful process so much easier for us than we ever expected it to be. We will never go anywhere else from now on, especially for serious issues or end of life care.Hannah H.Hannah H. ★★★★★ Staff was friendly information and welcoming. Dr. Hunter and tecs we're kind and absolutely treated my old lady dog as if she was their little old lady dog! Even obliged to her demands for love! We arrived at 7:00 and left just before closing because they were running behind. Have to tell you waiting for Dr. Hunter was well worth it!Jennifer S.Jennifer S. ★★★★★ Visited WellPets for urgent care the day after Thanksgiving. They were busy yet all the staff were attentive, caring & professional. The vet explained the diagnosis of my dog & the treatment plan. I recommend WellPets urgent care to all my fellow pet owner friends.Chris R.Chris R. ★★★★★ Always a caring group of people eager to help with our furbabiesNathan C.Nathan C. ★★★★★ Very nice employees and truly care for animals that come in would recommend wells petChris F.Chris F. ★★★★★ This was our first time in here and everyone was so sweet, especially Cheyenne! She was dealing with a rude customer while I was waiting and handled it with such grace. Highly recommend this Clinic!Kendall K.Kendall K. ★★★★★ Dr Miller and staff at well pets are amazing.Mia my little chihuahua, had a pyometra and needed immediate surgery.

Have had many animals, who had many vets, through my life — and, can’t remember a more caring and pleasant group. My golden had to spend a few nights there, because he ate stupid stuff. And, they were so communicative and patient. They were also very proactive in using one blood marker to provide an early diagnosis for a genetic condition. Don’t think twice — call them to care for your pet family member!Kimberly B.Kimberly B. ★★★★★ Thank you very much for your wonderful service , staff friendly and polite,Natallia B.Natallia B. ★★★★★ Love the staff and love Dr. Hunter!pamela S.pamela S. ★★★★★ We love taking our pets to Well Pets! We just had a visit and the vet tech was so helpful and nice ! The vet was kind and worked with us on our dog binx ! Thanks y'all! He is chillin now back at home doing great !John L.John L. ★★★★★ I just left my 1 star review at the emergency vet nearby. This place turned my whole day around. After waiting for hours to even be seen, i decided to take my poisoned pup over to Well Pet Vet and they grabbed her right away and we were out faster than the time spent at the other place. They were also really caring and kind and I appreciate that. They’ve definitely gained a new customer.Valora P.Valora P. ★★★★★ Dr Hunter is the Best!!!!!Sylvia T.Sylvia T. ★★★★★ Dr. Evans and staff, thank you for caring for Jet Stream and for the great treatment.

Thank you for making her transition so peaceful.Ana J.Ana J. ★★★★★ Late Saturday afternoon, we were able to get two rescue puppies in need of medical attention, repaired and given new life. Great staff!Allen B.Allen B. ★★★★★ My dog now feels a whole lot better, thanks to the staff there.Shilohniqua B.Shilohniqua B. ★★★★★ I had a GREAT EXPERIENCE, and I would recommend Well Pets to everyone. My baby hurt himself, and I took him there to the EMERGENCY. They didn't take our money and send us out the door, the doctor gave me a option that worked for me and helped my baby. THANK YOU WELL PETS.angela H.angela H. ★★★★★ Well Pets literally made my Mikey well after 2 scary weeks of him not doing well! The doctors and technicians care so much! Our family is so appreciative!Laura N.Laura N. ★★★★★ We had to take our daughter's dog for urgent care when she was left for us for the weekend. From the friendly staff at the front desk to the medical professionals that cared for Eva, it was an exceptional experience. Jessica, the vet tech, was especially helpful to us throughout the entire visit and a return visit the next day with concerns. Dr. Hunter was engaging and very open to including our daughter in a conference call concerning her dog's care. They did not try to upsell any treatment recommendations and answered our questions forthrightly. Hopefully we won't need pet urgent care anytime soon but highly recommend WellPets to others in need of such services.Betsy KBetsy K ★★★★★ Great place theses people really care about your fur babys 😃✌😃Edie S.Edie S. ★★★★★ I have been to Wellpets several times over the years with my furkids. Visits have ranged from minor injuries to serious problems, and every time we have been treated with such compassion. The cost is so much more reasonable than an emergency vet visit and you’ll receive just as competent care as you would potentially waiting hours to be seen. I love that they’re open until 10pm as well. I can’t recommend this clinic enough.Samantha B.Samantha B. ★★★★★ Very professional and caring towards my beloved Yorkshire TerrierJackJack ★★★★★ Wells Pet is awesome! The staff is wonderful, caring and understanding. I will continue to use them. They are always available for questions or concerns. Every easy to talk to.Toni M.Toni M. ★★★★★ They are taking great care of my children (fur babies)....I don't plan to take them anywhere else...it has been worth the miles we travel...photos to follow....Carolyn B.Carolyn B. ★★★★★ Annual physical MondayDusty is great and they're great!! 👌John S.John S. ★★★★★ I really liked well pets and they were very good with my cat Izzy and I would definitely go back they got us in quick and took care of my pet and have good pricing 👍Nicholas C.Nicholas C. ★★★★★ Great place, very caring,polite staff.Sandy M.Sandy M. ★★★★★ They really are awesome people. They helped us in our last moments with our fur Doghter thanks alot.Shantill “Peaches” M.Shantill “Peaches” M. ★★★★★ WonderfulJohn C.John C. ★★★★★ The ladies at the front desk were so friendly and even though there was a longer wait due to high volume, they made sure to keep me updated with when I was next. I had to leave my cat for a few hours and when I came back for pick up, they were quick to get me updates and again so friendly. The vet techs/ vet were very friendly and thorough and answered all my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I left feeling at ease knowing they did all they could to get me the answers for my cat! They also followed up the next day and made sure everything was going well and made sure to communicate that they were available for any further questions!Mory R.Mory R. ★★★★★ We brought approximately a 4 week-old abandoned kitten with a bulging eye, fleas and overall poor health to Well Pets Sunday evening, 9/24/2023. The experience from check-in to check-out was excellent. The exam and treatment given to the kitten was thorough and professional. The kitten was treated with care and compassion.

Everyone was so sweet and answered every question. My cat had to stay the weekend and they’d call me twice a day and send photos to update me. Staff was so sweet and they saved my kittens life (literally).Danielle C.Danielle C. ★★★★★ Everyone was very personable and respected that I was there for an emergency with a very restricted budget. I will be telling my friends and family that this is the location to go to for our fur babies.Susan B.Susan B. ★★★★★ My family has been patients of Well Pets for over 15 years. They always take the best care of our fur babies, help us in the best way that fits our budget, and refer us out whenever our pups needs are outside of their scope of skills.They've helped us through the losses of 3 dogs, showing the utmost sympathy and care.We love the doctors and staff and will never go anywhere else.Meagan M.Meagan M. ★★★★★ The emergency center aided us in putting down our 17 year old mini schnauzer. They were terrific in the entire process. Nothing but positives.Kevin I.Kevin I. ★★★★☆ We were able to go on a Sunday. They got us into a room fairly quickly but the wait for the vet was a little long as there were only two. However, the care and concern for my fur baby was real and they kept me informed and educated me on everything they did. We have been berj going to Well Pets for years and highly recommend.Diane D.Diane D. ★★★★☆ They are very good but you pay for what you get as they are pretty expensive. If you have the money I would recommend them. I use a more affordable vet that comes to my home also. I go to Well Pets when needed.Margie GMargie Gjs_loader

My very first experience with them was wonderful and I will definitely be using them from here on out. They were the only vet within an hour radius that could work my dog in and I’m so very thankful to them. They were very busy but they were just so nice and patient it was just a really good experience.

Brittany T.

Had to bring my 8 year old Shepherd in for an emergency visit and wish I could give 10 stars. Staff was extremely efficient, kind, and communicative. Best experience we have ever had with a veterinary clinic. Price was very fair for the services provided.
