They always dress so professionally here, the entire staff obviously makes an effort to look their best and maintain a very professional appearance. I couldn't believe how great their office looked. It was very obvious that they took pride in the office's appearance. It was one of the best looking offices I've ever seen. One thing I did enjoy was the waiting room chairs. They were comfortable and I didn't mind waiting in them for the appointment. I'm always amazed at how considerate and concerned they are for my well-being. Their advice is always wonderful and completely unbiased. They always make sure to return my phone call as soon as possible. They've never left me waiting.

For all those who think that Dr. Chalkley may be to pricey you have a thing or two to realize. I took my dog to her on Wednesday and she immediately told me that she needed to have surgery a.s.a.p.! My dog had pyometra and that this could kill her by the end of the week. I was able to see what was going on with my dog and I am so glad that and she made the right decision! Dr. Chalkley is an experienced doctor and I would never take my dog (which is a famliy memeber) anywhere else! The Dr could have gone to lunch but she didn't, she took care of my baby! Yes she wants to tell you all about the preventatives and suggest many other things that you may not think are needed but if you don't listen to her, you could be in the situation that I was in and even worse with a pet that she wouldn't be able to save. I would recommend her to anyone that loves there pet as if it was there family memeber and not just another pet. Also as far as people thinking she does not treat her staff well, she has very high standards and expectations, and they are lucky to work with a doctor with such experience and passion for what she does. Thank you to the entire staff and Dr. Chalkley.

I took my dog to Dr. Vogler at Southfork Animal Clinic. We had made a tough decision to euthanize our dog and I was impressed with how much the staff and the doctor cared. Dr. Vogler was very compassionate and made a difficult process easier.

I first took my cat to Dr.Chaulky about two years ago. Yes, I thought the veterinary care was a little pricey, but I figured my cat was worth it. I had just lost my other cat a few months before due to my own negligence, so I wanted the best for the new kitty. I found Dr. Chaulky to be kind and knowledgeable. They gave information about caring for the new kitty, recommended treatments and gave me options. The staff was kind and caring. Dr. Chaulky does her best to educate her clients and her staff. So, it's time I took my sweetie back to see the doctor.

the first visit took 2 1/2 hours for a routine physical with shots. because of my dogs age, they spent a little more time with us, but not much. there were very long periods of time that we sat in the room alone with our dog.
dr chaulkey's explanations were very vague and difficult to follow. she felt xrays were necessary to rule out cancer but then told us after the fact that we needed to pay more to send them to a radiologist to read??? we declined to send them off when she said she didn't see any evidence of cancer...just arthritis. very little discussion about bone cancer and all focus was on the arthritis. 4 months later, he stopped eating and we took him back. they accused us of declining treatment at the previous visit. there was NO urgency placed on sending the xrays off! sent us to a diagnostic center for a ultrasound...$1600 later between the two vets, we had NO more info than we started with. sent us home over a long weekend with a very sick dog who died on sun at 5am! noone instructed us what to do if he died and biopsy results wouldn't be available until tuesday! the results showed liver cancer and i will never know if it was because of this possible bone cancer.
i wouldn't recommend this vet. although i think she is knowledgeable and cares for the animals, i feel that her communication skills are very poor. when you add this to the fact that it's hard to trust what is necessary, it makes for a bad relationship!
we had a better experience with dr voegler so if you must take your animal there, perhaps you can visit with her. she was much easier to follow and very straight forward!

I am an employee at the clinic and you all should be aware of that as you read my review. The clinic runs very efficiently and the staff here are very knowledgable. I do bring my own pets here and would even if I were not an employee. The cost that some have brought up is more than fair. We are not talking about some amateur but a Dr. with 30+ years experience. A Dr. who is ALWAYS going to continuing education to better serve her clients. She will always recommend the best treatment and the entire treatment to make your pet well.
The consult fee for our clinic includes services that other clinics will not perform without a separate charge. i.e. toenail trim, ear cleaning and anal gland expression. These services are performed as part of your visist. The philosophy of the clinic being every pet leaves this clinic in BETTER condition than it did when he/she came in. Yes we can improve and strive to do so everyday. I invite your comments and will listen to each to better serve you and your pet.

Okay, here is the scoop on Southfork Animal clinic, and Dr. Chalkley. Some will love her, other's will not. So, if you love your pet as a family member, her and her staff take wonderful care of your pet(s). Yes, she does recommend a multitude of care products and preventatives for your dog or cat, especially if the breed you have is prone to specific issues later in life that can be prevented or mitigated. Hmm.. that sounds less expensive in the long run.... kinda like preventative maintenance my personal doctor recommends. Yes, her prices are more expensive than a "Low-cost" spay/neuter, vaccine, etc... But, her prices are within $5-$10 of the 12 vets I called with more than 15 years experience. Honestly, if I couldn't afford a reputable spay/neuter, I wouldn't have a pet. I did ask about online Pet meds...all I have to say is you need to go read the fine print, I am thinking these complainers are the same complainers that didn't know they were signing a balloon mortgage.. As far as taking a long time, well honestly, I don't want any family member herded in and out of any clinic, so if you don't have a few minutes for individual time to talk to the Dr. and technicians, well maybe you should rethink even having a pet.

I love my pets very much and I trust all three with Dr. Chalkley and her staff. As far as the bill goes, I take care of my animals, so there it is.

Dr. Chalkley and her staff have been nothing but wonderful to my pet and me - quality, time and price. My cat recently had oral surgery (by a dentist in Dallas) and Dr. Chalkley has been checking him daily (at no charge). She educates me on the treatment needed - whether she is doing it or referring to someone else. I would not go anywhere else.

I have to agree with Dr. Chalkley's previous clients. She is very expensive and does always seem to have you coming back for various things. She charged over double what a vet did in downtown for a routine procedure. I also had another procedure recently done on my dog which cost over 300$. I really wish she was more fair in her pricing, but I suppose I will be forced to use the doctor in Plano.

Took my dog there, took FOREVER to drop her off. Had two small kids with me and they just took their sweet, sweet time. Also, recommended way too many unecces. procedures. I have a friend who is a vet and she confirmed this. Also, rx way too many meds for extended time period. Also confirmed this with my friend. (Who lives too far away to be my vet). Anyway, paid my outrageous bill and will never go back.

I forgot to add that when she heard I was getting divorced, she wanted cash! She had to learn that I had way more money than my husband to be my friend again. Her people working for her did steal some stuff, and I guess that's why she got mad at them. Also, when one dog died, the owner had it in for her and scared her. j

The Veterinarian was OK but was HORRIBLE to her staff in front of all of her clients. She also will not in any circumstances give you a prescription to get mail order medication so you can get it from her only. She likes to keep you coming back for as much as possible too.
