Lakewood >Clover Park Veterinary Hosp
the real price might surprise you. I went here because of the reviews I read. My dog needed arthritis meds. The staff was friendly and the initial visit was reasonably priced. The meds didn't last very long and when I went back and got a bigger bottle it was close to 140.00. I found the same thing and size on-line for 75.00. The male vet, Dr. Tim Villm , refused to call in a prescription because the company was based in Canada but said he would match the price. The first time he did, the second time I had to fight for it but he did. The third time, right before Christmas the price jumped from the 76.00 I'd been paying to 103.99. I left without the meds and found them at 5 places on line for 65-75.00. I called my vet from Idaho and told her what happened. She said people that behave like he did give a bad name to everyone in the profession and called in a prescription for me. Now I get the same meds delivered to my door for 71.00 including shipping from a company based here in the US. I was never introduced to this vet and he isn't the one who saw my dog so I still don't understand why he was the one who was making the decisions for my boy. I do know that I'm much happier not having to drive down there and never knowing what the price will actually be. I would recommend the original vet, Dr. Deb Townsend for an emergency, but I highly recommend you look elsewhere if your pet will need medication for an extended period of time.
Caring people, highly recommended. We took our American Bulldog pup there on a Saturday near the end of the work day, he had an eye injury and nobody else had time to get him in. They squeezed us in! They were so caring and the veterinarian was so thorough and very, very caring. The price was very reasonable. Very professional and courteous staff, also. I highly recomend this clinic.
Excellent, inexpensive, last minute care!. When my Jack Russell Terrier decided ( for nearly the hundredth time!) to instigate a fight with our much larger Golden Retriever/Poodle mix she, once again, found herself on the losing end...and in need of veterinary care. Our regular veterinarian could not fit us in until a week later (too long to wait with a hole in her gluteus muscle) and we had an expensive and negative experience with a local after hours animal emergency hospital a few months back (yes, another dog fight). After reading some positive feedback on Clover Park Vet Hospital and their staff, I decided to give them a call...at 3:35pm. Amazingly, even though it was the busy holiday season and I know they were very busy, they immediately offered to fit us in...that very evening. The care was excellent, the staff very friendly, and the cost extremely affordable. We are not normally clients of this veterinary clinic, and I was amazed at the length they went to accomodate us so graciously, as well as the excellent care that Cleo received. They offered free staple removal when she is ready, and even refilled an unrelated prescription for us while we were there. We will certainly be back (next dog fight?) as well as give our recommendation to others.
A great pet place. I have used Clover Park Vet Hospital for 40 years. I began when Dr. Whittaker was the owner and continued after having met Dr. Marrone. I believe it was karma that Dr. Marrone bought CPVH - as I first met him at the Emergency Clinic in Tacoma. He is truly a thorough and very caring vet.
