Dr howe and her staff are amazing. It was a tough day laying our pet to rest, and the way doctor howe and her staff treated our pet and our family will be remembered forever. I am so grateful I came here and we had the pleasure of being with this staff during our pets last moments. It was so peaceful and I am so grateful to the staff. 11/10

This place is amazing and Dr. Howe is an amazing vet. My dog Tala who is a shiba inu, had an over grown dew claw. I usually take her to a groomer to have her nails cut. I noticed they didn't cut her dew claw and it had grown onto her pad. Tala isn't always friendly with new people who want to cut her nails, OK she turns into Cujo.. I unfortunately couldn't afford the care she deserves, writing google reviews ain't paying the vet bill. They were able to work with me and come up with a payment that I could afford. I am so thankful to the entire staff.

The vet herself was great. Other than the technician, who had an attitude, everyone was nice. Most of the staff didn't wear masks.

I go in to ask how much boarding is, "we can't board unless you're a client", ok once I'm a client how much is it? Well we can only tell you once you're a client...oh why? Because they might need services like vaccinations prior ok isn't that a s separate charge? No it's included in boarding, ok but you said I need to bring in for appointment first, why not charge me then for what's required then with nothing left but boarding how much? Circles and circles of yo get a price, how about tell me the price if nothing else is required??? Imagine the supermarket didn't tell you the price until after thg You spend money??? Awful business practices

This was the worst vet I've ever been to. I was a new client and my dogs needed a full work up , I understand costly for that. They needed 2nd round of shots that on paperwork seem to be paid for, nope no explanation just hundreds for more dollars that just needs to be handed to them for terrible work . They say the clip your dogs nails as a courtesy, yeah no . Didn't happen 2x I was there . The vet tech who was constantly speaking over me and wouldn't let me finish a sentence needs to be fired . WORST VET SPOT EVER .

The entire staff was so, so helpful to my little Kitty Daughter "Noviee".. Also, their follow up process is second to none ; as well. I can honestly say with conviction, that this is the best place, by far, to take your FUR-baby for proper care.. A big "Thank You" to the entire staff for helping my little girl. I will definitely return to their facility for the caring treatment, that they provide. Sincerely, Happy Pet Parent of Seventy-Six(76) Cats.

It was time for a change from our vet for several years whom we liked very much but it was time for that change. So glad I did because this place is very close to home, Hawkins animal wellness center. Everyone was patient & respectful with my panics. Reasonable in price as anywhere you would go these days. Very fair. Very clean. Great atmosphere. The doctor is so patient and confident. Can't ask for more for your most precious . One of the most important places to be satisfied with ,never the less being happy with. A+ for Sam and Jennifer.

Mary has very poor telephone manners. Extremely rude. Ended up taking my furbabies elsewhere because of it.

Having seen a letter that came in the mail from this place, not a place I would go to!! They said "do you have a dog who barks a lot? Try home euthanasia!" I wish I could post that picture

Dr. Howe is sweet, caring, and amazing. I have gotten the opportunity in the past to work with her and I enjoyed it very much. She is extremely loving to all animals and I have trusted her with my own pets as well as recommend family and friends to see her at her practice.

The vet might be great but this review is for the customer service over the phone. I called asking a simple question. I understood that they couldn't give quotes over the phone but I wanted to know if I would have to pay the exam fee twice if it turned out the vet tells me I need more money for my dogs treatment. It was a simple question that resulted in the receptionist hanging up on me after being silent. My mother called back for me and asked for clarification. The woman who answered was being unprofessional and disrespectful. She pretended not to be able to hear my mother so my mom called back to ensure connection was okay. When she called back the receptionist continued to act like she couldn't hear and had a tech come to the phone. My mother then said if they couldn't hear her she could come down to speak to them. The tech then threatened to call the police. The police? A frustrated customer called multiple times, was hung up on, ignored, and disrespected and offered to come in to avoid dragging the process out further and that's a reason to call the police? Eventually the simple question was given a simple answer and the tech apologized. It would be different if I were being rude or unreasonable but that wasn't the case.

I don't write many reviews but when I do I want to be 100% sure about who I'm reviewing especially w something as important as this. Dr Howe and her staff are as caring as they are professional. Been going there for over 4 and half years and I will never go to anyone else.

Dr. Howe is very knowledgeable but beyond that...she is kind, caring and treats each animal as if they were her own family pet. She was there for me and my family when my puppy was sick and even called me off hours multiple times to check in on him. I can’t say enough about Dr Howe and her wonderful staff.

Dr. Howe was very nice on the phone and offered a homeopathic option for our dog before jumping right into invasive testing, etc. I appreciated that very much.

I don’t know what terrible person has done this to your practice, but just know that your genuine live FB post has made its way all the way to Oregon, and you are supported. And, whether this is a personal or professional retaliation or ‘business move’ - it IS libel and I hope you get the justice you deserve and they get the legal ramifications and bad karma they deserve.
