MONEY IS THE FOCUS!! I wish that I could recommend this facility, but I cannot. In late October of this year I had an emergency situation with one of my female Shih Tzu. She was in labor and looked like she was going to need an emergency cesarean section. It was nearing midnight on a Saturday night, so my only options were emergency vet facilities. When I called Sherwood South, I was informed that I could bring her in, but that the procedure would be $1800.00 and that I would have to pay 1/2 up front and the other half when I picked her up the following morning. Not having all of the $1800.00 handy, I asked if they would just turn her away and let her die. I was informed that they didn't want her to die, but if I didn't have the money that they could not provide services. In my opinion, this is a perfect example of a facility were $$$, rather than the best interest of the animals, is the driving force. The good news is that I found a wonderful facility that didn't even ASK about money up front. They just took her in, performed the section, and worried about the money afterward . . . And the total cost was approximately half of what Sherwood South quoted.

The vet was great. They took my dog right in and helped her to feel better. All of the people were nice but the prices are OUTRAGEOUS!!! They have a beautiful facility but trust me, you're the one helping to pay the note! They charged me $36 for a small antibiotic prescription which costs $15 online (which I found out later). Plus, they charged me $70 for a 5 minute injectable sedation (they wanted to charge $150 for a gas sedation---all for a 5 minute procedure!!!) If you're in a bind, you'll do what you have to do to make your pet feel better. I would use them only as a last resort, or if you have lots of money and don't mind blowing it.

nothing but great things to say about Dr Marshall and his staff.. Always very helpful and takes great care of my pets... I have been around town to different hospitals ans have not been pleased any where else.. I highly recommend you go by and see. He is extremely knowledgeable about the care of your pets.

Professional is the last word I would use to discribe this place. I will NEVER bring my animals to this business, my pets werent fed, were covered in mud and dirt and also they did not get the meds I labled or the treats I provided!!! THIS PLACE COST ME A VISIT TO THE VET BECAUSE MY ANIMALS MEDS WERE NEGLECTED WHILE THEY WERE BOARDED AND I PAID AN EXTRA FEE TO HAVE MEDS GIVEN TO THEM!!!

While I was paying for my bill, I watched an older woman in the back hit or shake a dog because it was barking!!!! WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE WORKING AT THIS FACILITY???

This business has left a terrible taste in my mouth, I will NEVER return or recommend this place to anyone that I know!!!!!

After initially taking my new cat to a vet office where it was claimed that he couldn't be controlled, my brother suggested that I take him here after we noticed a wound on his back. When I took him in they had absolutely no problems with him even though they had to use a loud razor to shave around the wound, give him a shot, clean out his wound, and clip his claws. He did wonderfully and they were fabulous with him! I would highly recommend O'neal Lane Pet Hospital for anyone with a cat. They understand that cats being taken to the vet are scared and they know how to interact with them in order to make them feel comfortable. I'm not even getting the usual "post vet visit I hate you for doing this to me" cold shoulder from my cat. He seems completely unfazed by the whole visit, which is incredible.

I've been using Dr. Suzy and gang ever since I moved out to their part of town, and I've been totally satisfied with their services.

have been taking my two dogs here for 4-5 years now-- Drs Kleinpeter and Latkovich have been wonderful and the staff are always friendly-- they remember us even when it's been a long time. Doggie Day Care was also a lifesaver when i worked a lot & the boarding generally is great-- less expensive than most places and my dogs beat down the door to go there (which is the best recommendation a vet can get!)

Seems competent. However could use some work on bedside manner, or maybe he prefers dogs over cats.
