Aubie Goes Through Window. Dr. Edwards was awesome when my dog Aubie jumped into a window shattering it as his front leg went through the glass. He was a little agitated at the mailman who was delivering mail to my front porch. I took Aubie into Vestavia Animal Clinic and Dr. Edwards was looking at his leg in less than 3 minutes. She took him directly into surgery and repaired his leg which was cut up pretty bad. He has made a full recovery and even made today's Birmingham News. He won an award for the most unusual pet claim with VPI Insurance for the month of September out of 80,000 claims. I am so thankful that Dr. Edwards was working on the day of the accident. She was awesome!
A human life is more important. GET REAL!!!!!.
What is more important, a man's life or a dog's. If a dog was BRUTALLY and VICIOUSLY attacking you, for no reason, would you not do what ever necessary to fend it off? I would.
Before posting neg. comments or passing judgement on these people please get the facts straight. This is nothing but slander.
Best vet in Birmingham area. I have used this vet for years & they are wonderful. I dont even live close, I live 35min away & I use them. They are friendly to me & my pets. I would & have recomended them to everyone I know. I dont know the whole story about the beaten to death dog, but it was one person, not the facility. Also, you dont know how the dog was. sometimes dogs in a strange place arent as loving as they are at home, It could've been self-defense.
I have taken several pets to this facility and they provide excellent professional care.
Perhaps the bad reviews were for another facility with a similar name...there are MANY "insert name" animal clinics around. I have a family member that works there and know how much she and the rest of the staff care about OTHER peoples' pets as well as their own.
your sister probably deserved to lose her "sweet pet".
i feel sorry for your dog, but not for you or your sister.
scram, troll. these people are a respectable business and the vets are very professional.
Best clinic to take your pets in Vestavia area.. I have taken four generations of dogs to this facility and have gotten no less than the utmost care for my pets here. Everyone is so friendly and the vets really know what they are doing. I will actually be taking Murphy there tomorrow for a checkup with no hesitations at all. They really are loving people who care for our animals, especially Dr. Edwards.
Best Animal Clinic on the Planet. I have been a client of VAC for 20 years, several dogs and cats and I know first hand that this is the very best care you can get for your pet. I ahve dealt with every vet there and never have been let down. They have restored the health of rescued animals that I have adopted. And the dedication that the doctors have shown over all these years have given me the partners that I need to care for my pets. I have named one of my dogs after Dr Sarah Edwards, she is brilliant and dedicated (the doctor, not the dog- well, the dog too!). Dr Shane West has saved my dog Elvis' life, doing life saving surgery on a Sunday evening! and he did not charge any extra for the surgery. He also saved numerous other dogs that would have died had we not known of this facility. Dr Frank McClure has an understanding of the animal, their emotional as well as physical pain that they may be in. Dr Murphy helped me care for my dog Bogie in the last months of his long life, giving him and us enjoyable borrowed time. I cannot thank the doctors enough, and for their caring staff. I drive 30 miles one way to see these amazing doctors. To me, there is no place on the plantet better to help me care for my pet.
Top notch professional animal clinic. We take ALL our pets to Vestavia Animal Clinic (VAC) , even though there are have TWO reputable and excellent animal clinics MUCH closer to our house. We go to the trouble because the quality of care our dog and cats get at VAC is superb. VAC is a first-class facility run by caring and professional people. I watched their work for years. If there were ANY signs of lack of commitment for the welfare of animals or the slightest inclination toward lack of kindness, I would know, because that?s what I do for a living ? assess people. I haven?t got the foggiest idea what motivates the reviewer started the disingenuous thread about a dog beaten to death. There must an ugly personal issue here, because it simply could not have happened. If it did, I would know about it. The writer does not know that the facility owner is a lady (called the doctor a ?he), which lets me know that what s/he is either a badly intentioned individual with a personal agenda, or a patsy who passes on hearsay events, but never bothers to verify the "information." If I were the manager of CitySearch, I would not allow anonymous reviews. Anybody can write anything anonymously. "A lie, repeated often enough, will end up as truth." This quote is usually attributed to Dr Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda (1933-1945), one of the most evil people who has ever lived. Goebels exploited the German radio, press, cinema, and theater to launch propaganda against the World. Luckily, he did away with himself after Germany's defeat. I know what motivated Goebels: hatred. What motivates the person who started this lie about a dog being beaten at VAC remains a mystery to me, but I can take a couple of guesses, none of which are kind. To those who read these reviews: Do yourselves a favor, don?t believe lies! If you live near VAC and need a pet clinic, trust VAC to be absolutely the best service you can get at the fairest prices in town.
Sad that these caring professionals are getting a bad rap.
I have no idea what happened with regards to the posting about someone's dog being beaten to death at Vestavia Animal Clinic. Hard for me to believe that someone just went "crazy" and beat an animal to death at this clinic. Not saying it didn't happen...just saying it's hard to believe.
The vets and staff at V.A.C. have always treated my animals like their own. My entire family uses this clinic and no one I know has ever had anything negative to say about their services - including boarding.
I'm sad that someone lost their pet. But I'm also sad that the genuine, caring, professional staff at V.A.C. is getting such a bad rap on this site (and others).
Positive Experiences. I have used Vestavia Animal Clinic for all of my pets for more than 5 years now. I have never had anything other than a positive experience with the vets, vet techs, and receptionists. I have found every employee I've ever encountered to be caring, genuine, intelligent and beyond friendly. In fact, I will not take my animals to any other facility! I have no problem highly recommending Vestavia Animal Clinic to all my friends and family.
