What your neighbors say…

Rick If I were a pet, I would want my human parents to take me here. The friendly and caring staff and doctors giving quality care is all anyone could ask for. Appointments are kept well with little wait time in the waiting area which is very helpful for shy fur-babies; it's bad enough to be dragged out of house and home to go to the Vet much less have to hang out with other animals you don't know. The wait in the service room is short too. Rick Angie My cat was in kidney failure, and I was referred to Dr. Hickin after a bad experience with another vet. Dr. Hickin is amazing and helped give my Zoey quality of life for most of the last year of her life. Our current pets are patients & the care is exceptional with all the vets at this practice. Can't recommend these folks enough! Angie Nicole This place is AMAZING and needs a 10+++++ star rating. Found this place because of a horrible vet we were dealing with before who said that our 10 yr old (at the time) golden lab needed an immediate rectal surgery which I knew was no where near the case due to diarrhea and her rectum being a little swollen. The prior vet did NO TESTING whatsoever to prove that it was "cancer" which was what they were claiming. I stumbled upon Pataskala Animal Hospital when searching for a second opinion on our pup and when going in to see Dr. Harris it was the most reassuring visit that we could have asked for. Our pup actually has colitis and DOES NOT have cancer like they claimed. Ever since then this has been our go to place and we wouldn't change it for the world. Nicole Richard I have been her a few times. Always great people. This time my cat was very sick he had a nerf dart stuck in his intestinal tract. The office was closing but the doc called in helpers and performed emergency surgery on him right then. Cat is in recovery now. Just so thankful they helped. If I could I would give 10 stars. Thanks again Richard
