"I was a little nervous about taking our pit bull mix, Blaze, to the Animal Care Wellness Center, simply because he is afraid of EVERYTHING. Since he is a big boy (80-lbs) and brindled in color, most people tend to judge him very quickly - and not in a good way. I cannot express how very sad this makes me feel. However, Blaze absolutely loved making new friends here! All of the staff were very kind and sweet to us, and once I explained that Blaze was easily frightened, they took extra time and care to make sure he felt comfortable at all times. I was so touched by their efforts to be sensitive to his fears.
Blaze came to be treated for an ear infection (long overdue for diagnosis). He wasn't thrilled about having his ears cleaned (in all honesty, who would blame him?) but after each of his treatments, he looked and acted SO much happier. Dr. DiCarlo was extremely thorough and professional in his explanation of what the problem was, how he was doing to treat it, and why he was going to use each treatment method. He also took the time to answer each of my many questions. I was also very appreciative of the fact that there was absolutely zero guilt for having waited so long to bring Blaze in (we'd never had a dog with floppy ears before and were unfamiliar with the symptoms). Blaze had to come in for a couple more check ups and treatments over the next few weeks, but after each visit, he left looking happier and healthier. If a dog could leave with a smile on his face - that was Blaze!
On a final note, I wanted to mention that I think all of the veterinary fees charged here are VERY reasonable. Owning a pet costs money and really... you get what you pay for. I highly recommend the Animal Care Wellness Center to anyone wanting to get the best possible care for their family pet - Dr. DiCarlo and his staff are the best!"
