We just had a terrible experience with bringing our full grown dog in with a fractured nail.

The doctor was more comfortable talking to animals over humans - I could barely get any information from her and she seemed absolutely intimidated by me. They had me lift my 65lb dog onto the examination table myself - thank goodness I was physically able to. The doctor did not address specific questions and concerns of mine regarding antibiotics and medications. When they were doing the examinations I was solely responsible for restraining the dog - which bothers me because I am not experienced in handling animals in such an intense situation... because of all of this I was very afraid that the dog was going to flail straight off that examination table and fall 4ft+ to the tiled floor.

When we picked our pup back up we were informed that he tested positive 6 months ago for limes disease - which is interesting because we were never informed. This could have turned into something serious and when asked as to why we were not informed they totally dismissed the issue without reason.

On getting home we realized our pup was having A LOT of trouble with the dressing of the wound. They wrapped it WAY too tight with ace bandages and we had to re-wrap it ourselves. Also upon getting a second opinion the day after it turns out that they used straight gauze, without non-stick padding on the wound. When the Anamosa Vet Clinic (awesome folks) checked it out the clotting had dried directly into the gauze causing our pup some intense pain when having to remove the dressing.

As I previously mentioned, we went to Anamosa Vet Clinic the day after and I got to witness how true veterinary professionals work. It was a night and day difference... I *REALLY* wish we would have just gone there first - I feel guilty having left my pup with Blairs Ferry Pet Hospital - *VERY* guilty.

Dr. Lemme is wonderful! We have been taking our dogs there for some time now, and I just took my cat there this morning due to intestinal problems. He was so wonderful... gentle and kind, he knew exactly what to do to keep my scared pet calm, and they were able to get us in at a moment's notice on a Saturday morning. Excellent!

I've been living in CR for one year. I started taking my Westy to Park Towne Animal hospital because of the close proximity to my apartment. I was disappointed with the way Brodie would smell after boarding and the grooming was never the best. I also have never ONCE seen a dog walked by one of their staff and I live 50 feet away. So I switched when I needed Brodie boarded for a weekend. Brodie was there for 3 nights and he smelled great when I picked him up. The staff is ALWAYS soo friendly and knows him by name now when I call. The vet was very thorough in evaluating a scratch on his cornea and I've been 100% happy with the service they provide. The facility is very clean and doesn't even stink when you walk in. They also have lots of room in the back for running. I would recommend Blairs Ferry grooming, boarding, and veterinary service to anyone who loves their pets! :)

They provide great customer service, and the veterinarians are very nice. I have taken my cats there to get declawed and for a hysterectomy and have had no problems.

PROS: Great service
