First time here- Was greeted by woman at front desk. I asked about prices for grooming, nail cutting, ear & teeth cleaning. She was very polite & friendly! I had my dogs nails & ears done ( I had another appointment , not enough time to leave my dog for grooming) She was very gentle & kind to my dog. My dogs tail was wagging the whole time! I highly recommend you bring your pets here! I will definitely be going back!

My 11 almost 12 year old French Bulldog had surgery Tuesday. She had to go under anesthesia and 11 is old for a French Bulldog. The surgery went great and I'm very happy with the Doc and the staff.

DO NOT BRING YOUR PET HERE! My mother brought our slightly elderly (NOT SICKLY) family dog here this morning 7/21/2021 for a routine tooth extraction. She was only supposed to have 3 teeth pulled and to be picked up at 3:30 pm. When our dog was picked up, the vet told us that they pulled 9 teeth instead of 3 teeth. Our poor dog was bleeding all over the place and they said it was normal and to watch her for blood clots because she could choke on them and that she should stop bleeding and heal up in the next day or so. She never stopped bleeding. My mother called the vet and they referred her to an emergency vet in Trussville, but there was no way for her to make it all the way there in time to save her. Only 5 hours after they picked her up from the vet, she died in my mother’s arms in the living room floor. DO NOT bring your pets here at all. If you love your pets, which we most certainly do, do not trust this place. They killed our sweet girl.

My aunt and I arrived with a tiny white kitten that had been abandoned on our property 5 days ago. The kitten was in obvious distress and though we loved, fed, and kept warm and clean, it became clear that the kitten needed medical attention. The assistant was extremely helpful as was the Dr. We surrendered tiny Jamie in hopes he would survive. Jamie was a fighter. He is now, we pray, that he will heal, thrive, and bring much joy to a loving caring and nurturing home.

I wouldn't trust them to give my dog a bath, much less treat a sick puppy!

They dont care about the animals. They treat them very poorly. Even if the animal is severely sick and needs taken care of nobody will stay to make sure they are hydrated, fed and properly taken care of. When 5 o'clock hits everybody leaves no matter the circumstances!

We found & rescued a young stray cat & took him for shots & a check-up. He was skin & bones & near death when we found him two weeks before. I was told he was 7-8 months old, still growing & otherwise in good health. We scheduled for him to be fixed two weeks after that. During that time we noticed he was urinating more than normal. So we opted for pre-surgery blood work, where they would test him for serious problems before surgery & call to inform us if there were any major problems. That way we could decide how to proceed if there were to be any major health expenses in the future. We got no call. When I returned to pick him up, the person at the desk told me he had diabetes. She told me the doctor wasn't in & to return later for instruction. When I returned I still did not get to see the doctor. Another person at the desk told me he had diabetes again & that he needed insulin, one unit twice a day. That's it, no instructions on how to administer shots, no instruction on diet or care. They didn't even offer syringes, I had to ask about buying them. The insulin bottle cost $115. I had to return him every few days for blood sugar tests at $12 each. I went for his blood sugar tests at least four times. Every time I left, the cat had a huge blood streak down his leg & always acted very traumatized. Every time I went, I was told to go up more on the insulin by the person at the desk. I never did see or speak to the doctor about the diabetes. But after the last test I was told we now had to buy special prescription food too. Because supposedly his blood sugar was over 400. I asked if I could adjust his diet with our own cat food first to see how that worked. The person at the desk said it wouldn't work. I then mentioned how I thought he may have gotten diabetes from the trauma of nearly starving to death. She said that's impossible because it only occurs two ways, 1) you feed them to much regular cat food until they get fat & that triggers diabetes, or 2) They are born with it. I said "he must have been born with it." To which she bluntly replied "he would already be dead." So I asked how did he get it then? He was skin & bones & 7 months old when we found him. Then she started arguing with me as though I had the cat long enough to have over fed him to the point of being fat & that gave him diabetes. But I'd only had him a month when he was diagnosed. In fact she acted as though he was currently a fat cat but he only weighed about 4.5lbs & was tiny at the time. Suddenly I realized they had no idea what they were doing! I refused the diabetic cat food & left. I took the cat to Mark's Animal Hospital where they tested his blood sugar at 99. They also told me he was closer to 1-3 years old. They said a diabetic cat's blood sugar is good when averaging around 200, & that 99 was on the low end for a diabetic cat. We were told to reduce the insulin & given instructions on care & diet without the need for prescription food. After adjusting the diet with our own cat food, the next visit his blood sugar was 54. The doctor was shocked & had us reduce the insulin much more. The doctor also agreed that the trauma of starvation may have played a part in his diabetes & that the shock of aggressive blood sugar tests could have contributed to higher numbers. So apparently we were about to kill our cat with an insulin overdose if we had put him on prescription diabetic cat food & continued to increase his insulin. Because Isbell Animal Clinic had him in shock every time they were taking his blood sugar tests. The lesson here is, you get what you pay for. They may be cheap at Isbell but the care is super cheap & horrible. Plus they will add any extra charge they can find for as many problems as they can create. Don't take your pet here for anything except maybe shots. They don't care about your pet's health & they don't care if they kill your pet to get paid.
