They returned calls in a timely fashion the Veterinarian sit with my babies and listen to me. We recently lost one of our babies and the staff was so wonderful and helpful I can’t say enough. I trust them to care for my babiesGabrielle C.Gabrielle C. ★★★★★ In all my 35 years of being a pet owner and needing a local veterinarian, I can say that Waterway Animal Hospital has given me the best service EVER! I have never experienced (time after time) such exceptional, wonderful, accommodating and easy to work with staff as WAH. They have provided my 4 pets (2 cats & 2 dogs) with such respectable, service oriented and affordable care. Being a loving and responsible pet owner comes with a lot of expenses. They have the best care cost around (from my extensive search) and are always sharing options to help make it as affordable as possible. In addition, my pets are at ease with everyone they’ve come to know there. I feel much more at ease knowing my fur babies are loved on with sincerity each time they have appointments. And it doesn’t stop short of visits, they call to follow up on how the patients are doing, even after routine vaccinations. Thanks WAH for being the best in the biz in my humble opinion. You are so appreciated and very valued. 😻🐾Rhonda M.Rhonda M. ★★★★★ Great place to bring your pet. Nice staff and they care about your pet!Carl P.Carl P. ★★★★★ It was pouring rain when we arrived at Waterway & we were met at our car w/an umbrella! We were put in a room immediately. The Vet tech was super friendly collecting all of Cappuccino’s basic info & history. When the doctor came in, she actually sat on the floor to get Cappuccino-comfortable, he was nervous with the other animals around & thunderstorms. The Vet was so friendly, patient & knowledgeable, she knew Cap’s history. They didn’t try to sell unnecessary meds or vaccinations. Check out was a breeze, everyone at the front desk was kind & personable. We love Waterway Vet, we trust them with our very spoiled dog & definitely recommend them to others.Lauren S.Lauren S. ★★★★★ Dr. Kathy and her staff are great and have been taking care of our pets for years.Allen T.Allen T. ★★★★★ These are the most caring people in their profession.
