It's almost funny – I went searching on google to find information from user reviews on the quality of this establishment and on nearly every one there are only these 2 exact same comments. I did in fact choose to take my pet to Beach Veterinary Emergency Center and asked about the before mentioned issues. The "doctors" who see their patients are either Doctors of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) or medical interns who are over seen by board certified Doctors. The reason the wait is sometimes excruciatingly long is because just like a human medical office there are other patients in the back receiving treatments. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PERSON WITH A SICK OR DYING PET AT THAT FACILITY! They handled my pet with the utmost care and compassion, they were very knowledgeable and although the prices can be steep I wonder, what price do you put on the well being of a member of your family? Only a fool would think that these people chose to study this field and deal with your arrogance just to charge you outrageously. It seems that the only people who write reviews these days are people who were dissatisfied and looking for vengeance by deterring their business in any way they can. Well, I'm here to tell you that this business is professional and very well staffed. They're kind people who wish to do nothing more than help your family any way they can, make any decision you make more educated, or help ease the suffering if euthanasia is the best option.
I would HIGHLY recommend taking your pets to be seen here in the case of an emergency.
$1000 spent and my dogs look like they went to a chop shop – After two of my dogs got into a fight.. the youngest was adopted and he has been challenging dom. to be alpha for the past few weeks.. less than a week prior we took another dog to tidewater emergency..he looked amazing.. at Beach Vet.. my dogs looked like franken dogs with surgical staples barely in and falling out.. stiches looking like a mess.. and charged out the rear end.. I fully think the vet who treated my dogs as well as I know there was drama in the office several hours there you hear alot.. but I believe the vet got her degree from wally world.. if you can avoid it dont bring your pets here
My dog was misdiagnosed here – I'd prefer zero stars. I went in at 3 am and there was no one in the lobby but it took them an hour to take my dog's vitals. Another hour before the vet came out to talk to me. I don't think she was even there when I went in despite my having called before I drive there. Then after xrays adn blood work I was told my dog had a medium sized mass on his spleen and he needed surgery. I was told he had 6 months to live if it was benign (with surgical removal) and 1-3 months if it was malignant with surgical removal and chemo. I took him home after hospitalization and took him to a board certified surgeon who found no mass on the xrays the emergency facility provided. He brought in a board certified radiologist to confirm his views. To make me feel confident they did an ultrasound at my urging. No mass found anywhere in my dog. He was fine. And I was told that even if he had a mass on his spleen a benign mass would be removed and he would have been completely cured. A malignant mass would be removed and the result is usually 6 months for a lifespan. .I was put through emotional turmoil by these people because they couldn't read 3 simple xray views that clearly showed no masses to multiple veterinarians. They would have surgically cut into my dog and risked his life for nothing. I can't help but wonder if this sort of diagnosis has resulted in people euthanizing their dog(s) unnecessarily.
