We found Drs. Howard and Hart on this website, actually. We googled them after we adopted a puppy from a rescue. Both vets are awesome and amazing. They really care about the animals and their owners.

Our puppy started acting funny around 6 months old so we took her in to see Dr. Howard. Dr. Howard found lesions on her spine in an x-ray and ran some tests. He was so excited (excited in a scientific way not a good way for us!) that he drove around to his fellow vet-friends to confirm what he saw (an extremely rare disease that has never been found in a 6 month old puppy).

We loved Dr. Howard so much, we recommended him to a family member who had been having problems with her 6 year old dog who would throw up every few weeks and stop eating. The dog had been hospitalized over night a few times, and previous vets couldn't find out what happened. Dr. Howard finally found a toothpick and operated on her right away. He also gave the owner his personal phone and cell since he would be at his son's for Christmas.

The dedication and knowledge that Drs. Howard and Hart have is amazing. As is their patience! Go see them!!!

Drs. Howard & Hart are very knowledgeable about many topics of all animals. If they have an unusual case, they find the answer and explain their findings in laymens' terms. They show compassion for their patients, and when needed, provide a hand to hold when a difficult decision needs to be made. The staff is friendly and helpful, and provides excellent care for the patient. They have all been together for several years and are like 'family.' They work as a team to take care of your pet and make it easy for you when your pet is sick. They go the extra steps to ensure that trust with you and your pet!!

Pros: They know you and your pet when you walk in; gentle, comfortable, CLEAN, nice.

Cons: I have no cons!

Seriously, Dr. Howard is everything you want in a vet: he's extraordinarily kind, he's gentle with your pets, he's attentive, he listens, and he takes as much time as necessary to explain what needs to be done and why. Dr. Howard is one of those vets who exudes enthusiasm for his work--- he's also just a great guy, very personable, engaging, and yeah, he's got some of the greatest, bushiest eyebrows ever! He's charming and utterly and absolutely competent. We feel blessed to have found such a great vet after moving here from Chicago.

The clinic itself is spotless and the techs are friendly and competent. It's a happy place where the vets and techs bring their pets to work. There's also a separate entry door for cats so you don't have to worry about the big dog off the leash waiting for his appointment who thinks the kitty might be a tasty snack.

Our reason for visiting; Our elderly Italian Greyhound needed dental work and we had received a quote from another clinic for almost $1000. Whoa! Alameda Vet Clinic did the work for less than half the quote. The clinic has a separate room reserved solely for dental work and both Dr. Howard and his partner have received specialized training in animal dentistry. They are also keen on pain management so we didn't have to worry that our dog would be in pain, especially after we brought her home.

We would esp. recommend this clinic for anyone who has a sighthound-- Italian Greyhounds, big Greyhounds, etc. They have special metabolic needs and Dr. Howard is especially adept with these types of dogs.

Pros: Service, value, attentiveness, cleanliness

Cons: The location is in Lakewood, a little far west, but it's worth the drive, nonetheless

My dog was very sick from germs in a dog pool place and i was extremely worried. Dr Howard took such great care of her and saw me on a sunday, even though they were closed. This clinic is incredible and warm and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I had originally used the vet inside of Petsmart because I had a free visit. Avoid Benfield at all costs!! They are really impersonal and don't do much to help. I found Dr. Howard on City Search and figured I would give it a try. I took in my oldest cat and was extremely happy with the service. The front desk girls are really nice, and Dr. Howard is the best. He is so loving with the animals; my picky cat even liked him! He also took the time to explain options, costs, and his recommendations to me. He didn't push unnecessary treatments like Benfield did. You can tell he really does care for the animals he works with. I have since taken my newest kitten in and again was really happy. Everyone who I talked to in the waiting room was happy. I will keep going to Dr. Howard no matter where I live in the state. If you are looking for small town service and a nice guy I would definitely recommend this place!!

Pros: Service, Costs, People

Cons: Didn't find them first!

I have gone to several different vets and clinics in the area and have never found any doctors or veterinary staff that are as friendly and patient as Dr. Howard and the staff at Alameda Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Howard was very patinet with my dog and is a pro at giving shots-my dog never saw it coming and didn't notice the needle when it went in. I will be using Alameda Veterinary Clinic and Dr. Howard from now on.
