Our Clients Love Us!
My own vet was out of town and could not help me with our 4 month old kitten who was bleeding and couldn’t walk. I went into 4 other vets and called about 8 in town all who would not take a new pet. The staff up front and Dr. Adkins were all so incredibly helpful and caring. They took us in and broke the policy of no new clients. They gently handled my injured kitten and loved on her throughout the imaging and shots.Thankfully her injuries were not life threatening as I had thought, but she has a broken pelvis and a road of recovery ahead of her. I will be happy to be taking this road of recovery with Shannon Animal Hospital and recommend them to everyone!!
I've been using Shannon Animal Hospital for my pets since I moved back to Midland in 2011. They have always been considerate and caring with my animals (I have two dogs and five cats), even when the cats weren't particularly charming to the vet staff. I had to call today about a kitten I found, and even though it's been over a year since I was in last, they immediately worked me in for this afternoon, and were even willing to work with me on payment until Friday. I HIGHLY recommend this clinic. If you can get in during the rare times they're taking new patients, do so! You won't regret it.
