Testimonials

Feedback from our clients

  • "Great Vets, great staff and awesome quality of care!! My dogs having been patients of Dunwoody Vet for 7 years and we have always had great experiences. One of my dogs is a senior and has multiple problems, all of the vets have gone above and beyond to help her stay comfortable. I recommend this clinic to everyone I know, you won't be disappointed!"
    GREAT!
  • "I am new to Dunwoody and was very nervous about taking my cat to a new vet. My cat saw Dr. Spivey and she was wonderful. Very thorough, great bedside manner, and she didn't try to get me to get any unnecessary tests or x-rays. I really liked her, front desk staff (that is rare for me), and the cleanliness of the facility. What a relief it was to find such a great place. And today, my cat is doing great because of their care. I plan on making them my vet for both of my cats."
    EXCELLENT!
  • "I've been taking my dog, Higgins, here for several years now and would't dream of going anywhere else. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and caring. I cannot say enough good things about them. If you're looking for a vet, you should definitely check them out."
