What People are saying

  • Loved this Veterinary Hospital as they are very friendly and keep you informed of your pet's needs and medication. Everything is explained in detail, they are there to assist in keeping your pet healthy and on a quick road to recovery; they follow-up to see how the pet is doing and if I have any concerns; Have never experienced this before...will highly recommend this hospital to my friends.

  • This is a place that really cares about the animals that coming and their owners. The care they give is something I have never experienced before from any other veterinary clinic. I can call or go in anytime to ask about my dogs health and get help immediately. The staff there is friendly, helpful and make you feel at ease. They are kind and gentle to their patients. I feel lucky you have them care for my dog Russian.

  • I found Island Vet to be very friendly, informative with a comfortable atmosphere that made both my dog and I relax. I was looking for a new vet for my new companion after my last veteranarian retired. Island vet was the third vet I had investigated and I chose Island Vet due to the comfortable way I was cared for. The whole team was very informative and took the time to explain everything, they even gave me a call to see how my dog was doing. The vet took her time to investigate a product for me and called back with an explaination and opinion which was greatly apreciated. I know I have found the best vet care for my pets.

  • I have always received great care for my dogs. The vets make time to answer all your questions and are excellent on follow up care. My dogs are relaxed when they come for their exams which I believe is a result of the postive experiences they have over the years here at Island Vet. My two females dogs have been spayed here and both where looked after well and received good pain management after surgery. So keep up the good work to all the wonderful staff.

  • Staff are pleasant and friendly. My puppy was looked after immediately by the Vet. All questions and concerns were answered appropriately. The Vet was very attentive and hands on with my puppy. It was a positive experience for my puppy's first Vet visit(with me). Hand-outs and information to take home (from Pet Insurance, puppy care and other pertinent information about the care of my puppy) were given in a neat take-home folder. Initial assessments and vaccines are reasonable. Follow up with clinic the next day how my puppy was doing after his shots and exam. Reminders for follow up shots. Overall experience was satisfactory. You get better treatment as an animal than as a human-lucky puppy!

  • Thank you to the staff at Island Veterinary Hospital. All staff was so enthusiastic in helping us out and felt like they had been treating my dog for a long time even though it was our first visit.

  • Excellent facility, doctor, and staff. We brought our Dog in for an allergy concern and they took us as their last appointment. The overall experience was pleasant and informative. The Rx diet and Lily's condition were all explained in down to earth fashion. I felt that our concerns were being addressed and being new pet owners, we were not being talked down to, instead the doctor and her staff were very accomodating. We appreciate all the succeeding instructions for the proper care of our dog. We also appreciate the preventive care philosophy of Island Vet.

  • the receptionists are always friendly, I have visited this clinic probably 6-7 times in the past 1.5 yrs. Dr. Sarah Dumont is amazing, attentive and very honest. I always appreciate the time that each staff member spends with my doggy. I know they have alot of clients, but my puppy always feels extra special when he visits this clinic. Thanks for being so great! I'm a forever client here.

  • Everytime I go to Island Vet with a question or a concern or just to pick up dog food, everybody is welcoming, knowledgeable and I never leave without answers and solutions. Even my dog and two cats like going to the "doctor".

    A. Chevier
  • Very happy with Island Veterinary Hospital. We have a new puppy and they took the time (1 1/2 hours) to walk through all of the things we needed to know to ensure we keep a healthy and happy puppy. And our little puppy seemed to love them too.

  • Highly recommend. Staff are so kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Vets are gentle with terrified pets. Super accommodating with last minute requests for appointments if the need is urgent. Wouldn't take my girl anywhere else.

  • I always receive great care at Island Vet. My family has been going to Island Vet for as long as I can remember. From the doctors to the techs to the staff, they are always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The front desk staff are very efficient and competent in all transactions either on the phone or in person.
