    The staff and physicians at VCA completely disregard the value of your time and opinion, their only concern is that you have money to pay them. Their customer service is nonexistent and their prices are outrageous. To add insult to injury I am certain (although I cannot prove it) that they misdiagnosed congestive heart failure in one of our pups which resulted in death. Go somewhere that your time and money are considered important.

    In 2004, I got two kittens from the Animal Shelter--who forced me to have them spayed/neutered at 3 months old--
    The animals shelter picked this VCA beech grove (the kittens both had complications--respiratory infections --it was December/January 2005 (and it was freezing outside)--my one cat stil gets respiratory infections easy and allergies--I would have had them wait until 6months old---then at the VCA--I rushed to get more antibodic and they did not add water to the medication (my kitten was foarming at the mouth in distress)--
    I almost lost my kitten...They should wait until 6 months old to spay'/neuter these animals (HOW Mixed up is that?) I was so so upset---I hate this PLACE!!

    I have been going to VCA Beech Grove for 2 years.
    One day, my dog was having difficulty using her back legs and I rushed her to the clinic for examination. The vet determined that she had a serious condition called intervertebral disc disease and treatment was started right away. Thankfully, within 24 hours she was feeling much better! If they hadn't been so prompt with treatment, she could have become paralyzed in her back legs!
    I appreciate all that they have done for my dog!

    The staff at Beech Grove are GREAT. I had a pet that is afraid of new people. They brought him in the side door and the doctor was quick to see him. After the doctor looked him over then we talked, my dog did wonderful with them. I recommend them if you have a pet with special needs.

    I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND VCA BEECH GROVE ANIMAL HOSPITAL!! I have a few animals that were rescued and in pretty bad shape; the Doctors and staff at VCA BEECH GROVE were warm and caring and worked with me on costs! My beloved pets and I will forever be thankful for the help we all received at this hospital. I have sent friends and family there with their precious babies and hear nothing but great opinions from them. We have been and will continue to be a part of the VCA BEECH GROVE family!! Thanks VCA

    I agree. This place is a rip-off. They ask you to pay for the fecal exam but do not tell you there's a 60-day expiration on it. I lost my money but they have lost a customer with 2 pets! I've spent so much money this year and they can't write of $50!

    After numerous trips to VCA Beech Grove, I'm really disappointed with their business practices. I feel that they trap you into paying for services AFTER they are performed and do not give you options beforehand. I have been charged for several things that were a "surprise" expense after the visit was finished. They may work with a customer on charges from time to time but at the expense of every other customer that is overcharged. I'm not saying they don't care for the animal, I just don't trust their business practices. They also won't honor any outside request for a prescription (example: 1-800-petmeds) which is against the American Veterinarian Association's code of ethics. You pay for that prescription when you pay for the exam and it's yours to do what you want with it. I will no longer be giving them my business and am taking my dog to another local vet who cares for the animal (and it's owner) and doesn't rob you for trying to care for your pet.

    I used to live in Beech Grove and took my dogs to Dr. Skinner when HE owned it since 1977. However, not sure if Dr. Skinner is even there still or if he is semi-retired as was the case the last time I was there, but I transferred all my pets' records to another vet since VCA took over. The vets there now are not of the same caliber that Dr. Skinner was. However, this place is still better than some vets in the area, especially IVEC.

    Upcharge and pressure sales for every treatment for three years of our patronage. Was pressured to give an injection of what you and I call PREVACID for $33! Afterward, the Dr. wrote on a pad : "1/4 tab for three days". Are you KIDDING ME? I had it at home already and I paid less than $10 for 30 pills! I also found out that they will price match any Internet pet pharmacy... but they will TACK ON a $16 fee for "DISPENSING FEE". What a rip! I was so pissed, I decided to get the script and mail order it. If it's chronic, help me save money. If it's acute, and will give immediate comfort or save a life, I'll pay whatever... but I will NEVER pay it to VCA again. I'll be bruised for years after the robbery they passed my way. Glad I began to wake up and question them more thoroughly.

    I really loved by previous vet-Eagle Creek Animal Clinic-the best. But I moved and it was no longer convenient to go to the West side. VCA is a servicable vet but I don't feel the "personal touch" of the other small vet clinics. The grooming is satisfactory but not as good as my usual groomer The Rhinestone Collar. Prices seem to be the same or higher than most vets.
