Dr. Kilpatrick is THE BEST. So knowledgeable. Reasonably priced, I've been to cheaper but so worth his knowledge. Especially for elderly dogs. So sad I had to move away.

The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Jeanette came out to discuss a situation with my Ivan boy. The Doc came out when both my cats were finished and explained their individual skin issues to me.They are like family to me. They have been my Veterinary hospital for over 15 years.

Don't sacrifice your hard earned money or your pets health by coming here. I've brought my two dogs here for years because I thought this was a good vet, even though the services are overpriced, but today I found out how wrong I was. I had surgery scheduled for my dog for today. He had a pre-op appointment on Friday and was cleared for surgery. Brought him in today and they anesthetized him and shaved his belly. Doc then noticed a severe skin rash (which he has been seen for multiple times by this vet) and cancelled the surgery. The rash was visible without his fur being shaved and was present at his pre-op appointment. I was charged over $500 between the two appointments and was told that I should have pointed out the rash to the technician on Friday.

Love them!!! Wish I had know they were here ALL the years I had lived in Vero previously...they are by far the nicest and most thorough Veterinary clinic I have used to date.

Just appears very dirty. Dilapidated looking building. Quick, though.

Had to put my beloved dog down. They were all extremely caring and handled everything to include sending him out to be cremated and contacting me to pick him up once completed.

Kirklands daughter took a collie puppy from Heathland Collies. She contacted me under false pretenses giving me a phony address. She told me she lived on 5 acres with her father After she took the puppy she refused to respond to requestsfor information as to the puppies welfare so I called the fathers office since she did not return calls and emails and learned she lived in an apartment in Tamps I never sell a collie puppy to an apartment dweller and she knew that. I questioned her about where she lived over and over and she lied. She was supposed to pay for the puppy through PayPal that did not happen either and she is refusing to give me her address or return the puppy and her father is protecting her he will not talk to me. and has told the office girl not to give me information. This is Catie Kilpatrick now she is texxting threats. Jan 2/2020

They took my friends dog as an emergency. The vet had no problem answering our many questions.She had to end up being euthanized. They were so thoughtful and compassionate with both my friend and Kayla the dog. Helped make a really heartbreaking situation a little easier. The office was clean, neat. The lady at the front desk was so friendly. I will absolutely be taking my Luca there ????RIP KAYLA you surely are missed

Doc and the entire team are the most knowledgeable and caring people. For me and my family this is the only vet in Vero Beach.

Best place to go with your pet! I even asked Dr. Kilpatrick to treat me - unfortunately he had to decline. They treat animals better than some Doctors offices treat their patients.

Dr. Kilpatrick and his staff are an amazing group of people. We called them on a Monday morning in a panic due to a situation with our 8 year old German Shepherd. They told us to bring her in right away which we did and as soon as we got in the door they took her to the back to start helping her. We went back several times for follow ups and we received the same professionalism each time. Our German Shepherd felt so comfortable around them which is unusual for her. We will definitely recommend them to everyone we know. You can tell Dr. Kilpatrick is in this field because he really cares about the animals. We have found our new vet.

My family has been coming to Dr. Kilpatrick exclusively for over 20 years, and there is no one else I want looking after my babies. He shows genuine compassion like it were his own pet and that is hard to come by. It is such a warm environment, and I know my animals are getting the best care possible. The staff is always trying to go above and beyond to make my animals feel comfortable, I would not go anywhere else. A little more expensive but worth every single penny! Don't go anywhere else!
