 4/16/14   5     5     4     3   Southglen is my secondary clinic. As a secondary clinic, they are fantastic for staffing, facilities and hours. I struggle with the money side of it due to a fee structure for EVERYTHING. IE. A full blood panel, is not a full panel - it does not include CBC. They charge nearly $20 for a blood draw - which I'm sorry, but this should be included in any fee for blood work. I don't know any other vet who bills like this. Because of the facilities and service, I have no issue that their services costs more - for say the vet visit, blood work, medication, surgery - that's fine, but I don't like being nickle and dimed. That being said, the vets are always helpful, you just need to remember to ask for a breakdown on prices if the price catches you and ask them if a cheaper alternative exists. They care about the animals and that's what counts so they will remain my emergency clinic or back up clinic when I can't see my regular veteranian. RID: 51065

 4/10/14   2     4     2     1   We used to go to Southglen, but recently their prices have shot up and they seem to have gone through a lot of staff. The place seems to have many young and inexperienced employees now. The lady vet we had on a couple of visits was fantastic. The facilities are very nice, presumably that is why they charge so much.

 3/25/14   5     5     5     5   I don't normally rate online. I see few ratings below that do not provide any facts. I have been using this vet hospital for last 2 years or so. All my experiences here have been amazing. The staff is wonderful, always willing to answer your questions. Docs are great. All the ratings about the cost are stupid in my opinion. There are clinics which are more expensive than Southglen. I have used several vet hospitals in the past and I find prices at Southglen very competitive. I'm sure you can get cheap vet services at other places but remember you get what you pay for!! I highly recommend Southglen vet hospital. RID: 50685

 3/8/14   1     3     3     1   We noticed our dog of 9 years had some blood on her gums and we took her to Southglen. The vet determined that our dog had been poisoned. We were shocked, as our dog is with us constantly and we had no idea as to how this could have happened. We were advised that this was treatable, the recommended treatment was medication to get her body to produce blood cells and blood transfusions until her body could produce blood cells on its own. After our fees totaled $4500 and she was not getting better the "diagnosis" changed and we were told she had cancer. We were then advised that the best course of action was to euthanize our beloved pet. Not sure if the misdiagnosis was incompetence or if our love for her was taken advantage of? RID: 50386

She always remembers both mine and my dogs names and makes a point of coming over to give lucky some attention. I would highly recommend this clinic to everyone! RID: 48911

 12/19/13   5     5     5     5   I have been to this clinic many times over the past fews years, most recently when my dog decided to eat a box of Christmas chocolates. The staff there were able to take us in right away, and explained everything to us so we knew what was going on. Thankfully our precious Toby is now ok, and I think it's all because of the caring staff at this hospital. I feel at Southglen they truly care about your pet and they do their best to make both you and your pet feel at ease. The receptionists are totally welcoming every time we walk in, and the techs and doctors are awesome. I would recommend this place to everyone. RID: 48861

 12/14/13   1     3     2     1   Took my cat in on a summer night after finding a lump/wound. Dr Singh or Sra looked at it and asked if he hurt himself.. I said no, he's an indoor cat? Dr then asked if we put anything on it because it was black.. he then picked at it, caused it to bleed, and cauterized it. My poor cat screamed. He sent us home and said put polysporin on it and if it doesn't go away in a couple weeks, surgery was needed. I took my cat in for a 2nd opinion to Catrysse Vet a month later after it grew twice in size, and he knew right away it was a TUMOR. He did surgery and found it was skin cancer (Melanoma). My cat was put down 48 days later because it spread so fast. I can't help but wonder if I could have saved him or prolonged his life if Southglen didn't misdiagnose and aggrivate the tumor by opening it. NEVER going back here, i'll pay more at animal emergency. RID: 48773

 8/15/13   1     1     1     1   The staff is extremely arrogant. A total fake. Our experience with this clinic has been horrible. Sent by doctors at the Stonewall Hospital, they had to do an ultrasound for our dog. We ended up paying 253 for the ultrasound only and the Indian doctor was not going to discuss the prices with us. Because those are Moon prices, not Human prices. If you said you were all so happy, that means that you are brainwashed and the amount of money doesn't matter. It matters to us when it comes to affording to treat a sick animal. They make it impossible. Very rude and arrogant people. We will never go back to this one or Stonewall. He asked us to take our animal and leave, because we asked them for accountability. Truth bothers them. Greed at its highest, this is what this is. RID: 46317

 4/23/13   5     5     5     5   I have been using this clinic for almost 3 years for my pets. I have dealt with all of the vets there. The staff here is great, always greeting you and the pets. I have used them after hours when my dog got into a fight with another dog. They got me in right away and fixed up my dog in no time. Regarding the previous comments about them being expensive, I don't agree with that. I think they are very reasonably priced. I highly recommend southglen veterinary hospital. Keep up the good work guys. RID: 41986

 4/16/13   2     4     4     1   Expensive, This clinic claims that they donot charge emergency fee but most of their services are very expensive. I took my dog there as he vomited couple of times but was quite bright but doctors kept him in the hospital for 3 days which costed me $2000. People beware. They mean business. RID: 41808

 4/11/13   1     2     1     1   Please be careful with at this clinic. My cat came in because he was thin but he was eating fine. He was given all kinds of expensive tests and his blood work came back normal. They gave him medication for Hyperthyroidism - Tapazole on a 'hunch' as they couldn't figure out any other reason for the weight loss. My cat was ok for a while and then he got sicker, stopped eating, started having seizures and signs of toxicity (fell down when he tried to walk). I took him back several times, and told them to try taking him off the meds(which they WAY over-charged for) but by time we realized it was probably the medication that was harming our cat, he was suffering severe seizures and Dr. Tait strongly suggested we put him down. I really feel that they didn't know what they were doing and were just guessing. When my cat was put down they still could not tell us what caused his condition. I believe they killed him with unnecessary medicine. Please be careful with Tapazole. This med is dangerous RID: 41703

Explained things very well and made sure I understood all my options before deciding what to do. I'm not sure where she worked before but Southglen is lucky to have her! RID: 40935

 11/6/12   1     3     2     2   We had to take our beloved dog here to be put down because she was very sick and we didn't want her to suffer through the weekend until our regular vet clinic was open. We signed the form to have our dog euthanized, requesting both private cremation and a paw print keepsake. The paw print was never done because "they forgot" and they were not very apologetic about it. We have lost something that we can never get back again because of their carelessness. Please don't let this happen to you. Request that the paw print be done while your pet is still alive. This has been devastating to our family. RID: 38318

 12/19/11   5     5     5     5   I have used Southglen Vet Hospital on several occasions after hours and was very impressed with each Vet that cared for my dogs. The staff are very compassionate and friendly as well as knowledgeable. The staff really listened to my concerns and took the time to explain my options well so that I could make an informed decision. The hospital is clean and very modern and they are open late 7 nights a week which gives me such peace of mind! I am switching over! RID: 29963

Click to report rating    12/5/11   5     5     5     5   We have been using Southglen vet hospital since 2008 for our 3 dogs. We have had hogs all our lives and been to a lot of vets over the years. We are extremely happy with the services received at Southglen. They have a great, modern facility. The front staff always call our dogs by their names and treat them as royalties. We have dealt with Dr. Sra, Dr. Bhandri and recently Dr. Singh. They all are great. They work with you, explain everything clearly and most importantly listen to us. This fall we had to have one of our older dogs put to sleep:(( we wanted this to happen at our home. When we called, they were busy and only had one vet on duty, but they called the other vet at home and he came to our house to help us out on his day off! Says a lot about these guys! I totally trust the staff at Southglen! Thank you guys, I wish you treated humans too, I'll change doctors in a heartbeat. RID: 29612

Click to report rating    12/2/11   2     3     3     2   I truly feel this clinic takes advantage a nickel and dimes it's clients. Performed a botch surgery on my dog who they diagnosed with Entropion, dog's never been able to close her eyes since. Had to go back for second surgery. Wish at the time I ask more questions about the surgical experience at the time. Furthermore the front desk admin staff seem poorly trained, agreed to fax a filled out claim form to insurance agency because when we picked up the dog doctor who diagnosed wasn't in, rather than come back they agreed to get the doctor to sign the form, but didn't fax along invoice with claim outstanding for weeks at xmas no less.

Click to report rating    5/12/11   1     4     1     3   tried this clinic last fall based on a referal, but the doctor we wanted was not in - the vet we did meet (cannot remember name - young female) made us very nervous to leave our dog with - she seemed insecure and timid, and turned bright red with embarrassment when WE corrected HER. not confidant in her abilities at ALL, so took our dog to the pembina clinic instead. immediatley felt at ease and trusted our dogs life with them. also had to wait awhile to be seen even tho we were the only ppl there on a saturday night.

Click to report rating    4/4/11   5     5     5     5   My cat was attacked by a dog and severly injured. These people were absolutely amazing. They took him in asap. They were honest with the price to save his life. Help make it more affordable the best they could. Worked with us, never got annoyed of phone calls. Always polite. I cannot thank them enough for what they did and how they managed to save my cats life. I have another cat and a dog and they are all going to be going there from now on. This place is the BEST animal hospital I have been to. Dr. Jill Tait, Dr. Sra, and Dr. Bhandari are miracle workers. I have never seen a vet with so much compassion for animals as I did in Dr. Tait, and all of them. If you have any doubt at all you should just give them a chance you'll be amazed. Once again Thank you to all the staff RID: 24089

Click to report rating    3/17/11   4     4     4     1   My kitten has not eaten in 4 days & I took her in to see the vet. He did an initial exam & said he can't see anything wrong with her besides having mites,& wanted to do a blood test for leukemia. We did the test - results were negative. He then wanted a test to check her red blood cell levels, etc. Now, I am not very well-off & made this very clear to the vet & then asking the cost of all these tests & if they are actually "needed". This one test was $120, but I decided I wanted to go through with it just in case something really was wrong. After, he shows me the results. Again, nothing is abnormal, just a few high levels due to her not eating & being a little dehydrated - nothing serious. He then tells me the total including tax: $323. I almost fainted. He then said he was going to treat the mites & give her something to settle the stomach & some fluids. NOT informing me this was going to run my bill up another $80 or giving me the option to refuse the treatments. I will never go back RID: 23623

They were able to see her right away and didn't charge extra for an emergency visit. Premises are always clean and tidy, staff and doctors are all very knowledgeable and compassionate. My cats have been seen by three of the vets there and all take the time to explain why they are doing each test, what the results mean, and why they are reommending certain medications. I have switched my cats to this vet and will never take them anywhere else. The hours are excellent. I am so happy to have found this place. RID: 21085

Click to report rating    9/8/10   5     5     5     5   I have been bringing my two dogs to this clinic for a few years and am extremely pleased with the service that they receive. We have been fortunate enough to have caring Doctors whose best interest lies with the quality of care for our animals. Each time we have been lucky to have Kim-a Veterinarian Technician at the clinic. She is amazing with our animals, extremely kind and informative. She is one of a kind. This is some of the people that you will deal with when visiting this clinic. It is well worth the drive and with their new hours, it is convenient for all customer schedules.

Click to report rating    8/1/10   5     5     5     5   WOW! what an amazing vet hospital. Awesome hours, amazing staff, and best of all no emergency fees! Had an extremely horrible experience with the Pemina Hospital once before was never going to go to a vet hospital again until i found out about this place. I Had to take my cat there last night. It was a great experience, i felt i could really trust the vet, they were upfront and honest about all the costs and they ended up not charging for the x-ray because they wanted to do it for their own piece of mind. 100% i will go back there again. I love my regular vet but if she ever leaves I will definitely go here. EMERGENCY'S = SOUTHGLEN VET hands down no comparrison to anywhere else. RID: 19034

Click to report rating    1/25/10   5     5     5     3   Used this clinic in an emergency - good service, friendly, clean, but had to question the cost of one of the drugs, tech talked to the vet, and discovered it was an overcharge ($50). Next day returned both the nsaid and antibiotic as one of them caused diarrhea - had to question the low amount of credit for these pills - again, they talked to the vet in the back, and returned with a better rate. I feel bad for people who trust their bill (which we should be able to do). Twice in 24 hours having to question the charges - not good. Good that they responded, though. RID: 16300

Vets and staff working here really do care about animals and always try to make them feel as comfortable as possible during exams and procedures.
