    sgilbert quote I brought our chicken here because I couldn't get her into our regular vet, and they are supposed to be an 'All Species Animal Hospital'. I would NEVER EVER bring an animal to this practice again. They have absolutely no idea what they are doing. They charged for services which were not necessary. I ended up paying $685 for treatment that was not necessary. When I took her to our regular vet, he treated her correctly for $69 - which included the meds. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY AND JEOPARDIZE YOUR PETS HEALTH BY TAKING THEM TO THESE SCAM ARTISTS
