How sensitive the whole staff is to the fact that my boys don't play well with others. Making it much easier on me to bring my boys in/out drama free.

The girls there are fantastic - they're very knowledgeable and efficient, and handle rushes like pros. I had to wait awhile for Dr. Donovan to finish with another client, and they were good about letting me know status. Appreciated that, and I love that Dr. Donovan takes time with the pets and the me to cover the issues. Never feel rushed out.

My dog had her teeth cleaned and two removed. She got the princess treatment because the techs noticed she didn't like recuperating in her cage. They let her out, to hang with them, easing her confusion as to why she was crated and alone. Not only were her medical needs cared for, but her emotional needs too. Such kind people.

What originally brought me to Island Lake Vet was the price. Much cheaper then other places at the time. I am not sure how true that is today. We have been seeing Dr Donovan for several years. What we love about him is his laid back approach. He seems to really care. He doesn't make us feel bad for not doing somethings we perhaps should do. He never seems rushed, always taking time with us and answering all of our questions. He always seems to go the extra mile.

This time however I could not believe how rude Heather was. She made me feel like we were an inconvenience. She was unhappy because I called earlier sat am and thought I could wait. After a couple hours Carley was much worse. When I called she was not kind and very put off. I understand are is the offic

Through all the years (10+) we've been taking our dogs to Dr Maks & Dr Donovan, we have been extremely pleased. No reason to go anywhere else.

Every time I bring my dogs in with an issue you always bring them back to being healthy. I really appreciate all you have done for my 15 yr old husky and my 8 yr old Skipperkee! You always suggest what's best and leave it as options instead of pushing meds and/or surgeries on people. Thank You

I love that Dr. Max and the staff know that I have a very fearful dog (he is scared if the wind blows too hard outside) and gets down to his level and does their best to comfort him and assure him they are only trying to help him and take care of him. Everyone there is very compassionate towards the animals they see and treat. Great job everyone ! Thank you for love and care you give to our fur babies.

They are the most caring, compassionate people that truly love animals. It's nice to walk through the doors and have someone always greet you and your pet with a smile. They are always very accommodating and are able to get you in quickly. Their prices are also very reasonable. I am sooo very greatf

I started to go to Island Lake Vet because the prices were cheaper then other vets. Though the office isn't fancy, I'd rather have low cost. I love that the doctors take time with you. They don't seem to rush you through. They seem to care, and are honest and don't make you feel bad about the decisions you make. I am able to get an appointment when needed. The girls at the front desk have always been helpful and kind. Very important.

I very much appreciate the careful listening skills of the doctor and the thoroughness for which he examined Taj (nasal type congestion/inflammation) and Titan (heart worm). He listened to my concerns and acted. Both instances were most likely difficult diagnosis and the doctor appears to have gotten both correct. Thank you.

Thank you for all you have done for our herd. Your kindness, caring and laughter are what makes your practice so special. There are many options today for annual shot packages at deep discounts. Yet, on the occasion your pet needs a vet for acute or chronic issues. If you as the owner have not established a relationship with a vet, in reality you have done a disservice to your pet. And for what? To be able to get that extra beer???

To protect the authenticity of our reviews, only current clients of our hospitals are allowed to leave feedback on this page.

Clients receive an email invitation to provide feedback after they've completed a visit to the hospital. This ensures that anyone reading the reviews can be guaranteed that the review is a legitimate review. We do not allow our clients to edit client reviews they receive. All reviews are actual client reviews of this hospital.
