  • I cannot say enough about the service I received from the Vets of Tampa. They were excellent I believe it was after 12 when I called and come out that day. 3 technicians came out for me took care of my babies. They were very loving and … More caring with my babies and they love then back. I thought it would be a lot more expensive than going to an office visit and it actually turned out to be about the same thing. I would recommend them to all of my friends and family and to anyone that has a pet that they love and want then to be well taken care of this is the veterinary to call. If you are in need of a vet give them a try you will not regret it. I for one will continue to call them when I need a vet.

  • Wow. I can't say I've ever experienced a place like The Vets. We brought in my dog for a stomach concern and the entire process from start to finish was fast, professional and caring. Every single person my dog and myself encountered … More and interacted with was outstanding.
    The place is welcoming in every way possible... in fact, more welcoming than my own doctor's offices and staff. With meticulous attention to patient care, the exam rooms are spacious, bright and welcoming... down to adding small touches (a puppy blanket on the exam table) and couches. Let me be clear, my dog does NOT like going to doctor appts... in fact he typically pulls me towards the door to leave. This is the first experience we have had where that did NOT happen.
    Even more wonderfully surprising, was a swag bag given to my pet as we left. What a bright touch of joy especially when we were visiting for a health concern.
    Take what you know about vet offices and throw it out the window. The Vets is a level of care for your pet like no other!
    My only wish... that they also boarded animals... fingers crossed they will eventually.

  • Our cat Roscoe got sick over the holiday weekend. We made an appointment for 6/1@1:00pm. We were seen quickly, everyone was extremely caring and the pricing was very reasonable. The facility is really nice and clean as well. This was the … More first time and will be seeing the vet again on Thursday.
