I wish I had checked the reviews before taking my cat to Dr. McElroy. He recommended cleaning her teeth, which would have required anesthesia, risky in an older animal. I opted instead to teach her to let me brush her teeth. It took some time, but is much less risky.

Pros: kind. friendly staff

Cons: greedy doctor

Dr. McElroy had been our primary veterinarian until our dog developed cancer. Following a diagnosis by a veterinary oncologist, we had our dog successfully treated. She was undergoing chemotherapy and had good quality of life. When it came time for her annual check-up, we returned to Dr. McElroy, who insisted that she had her annual ""shots."" At that time we did not know that a dog undergoing chemotherapy should not be vaccinated because her immune system was compromised by the chemotherapy. As a ""professional,"" Dr. McElroy should have known this. Our dog died within weeks of being administered the shots by Dr. McElroy. We took her to the oncologist one last time, who could not understand the dog's state of deterioration, given her previous check-up, which she had passed with flying colors. The only explanation was the shots that Dr. McElroy had administered, and from which he profited by charging the fees for them. Dr. McElroy operates a very greedy office.

I have been taking my dogs here for the last 8 years and have to say that it has been the best of any I've gone to. My oldest dog is a snippy little witch that doesn't like the vet and, even though she is only a 10 lb min-pin, had to be muzzled by all the previous vets. This is the only place I have taken her where she was calm and seemed to like the vet. So I brought in my other dogs, and continue to go back. They offer great services and do have private consultation offices (the only time you're in an open space is if you go to the back for nail trims/shots from the techs).

I just read the good reviews here but have to say that I took my dog here a couple of years ago and would not go back. The place looked very dirty and I didn't like how you were not directed into a room for the consultation - but in a back area open to other people working - where there was no privacy. The vet seemed to be rushed and not very communicative. I just didn't feel comfortable that my dog would get the best care there.

The staff is great. I have been going to Ocean Vet for 10+ years to take my "kids" (2 dogs and a cat). They are very accomodating and friendly. I sometimes you their "day-care" for a day and my kids always come home happy (unlike some other places I've tried in the past). Their Vets are very thorough and explain everything in detail - they are really concerned about your pets. I would highly recommend them.

I've been coming here for years with my pets. The staff is well-trained. It's a great place to get check-ups, shots, and anything for your pets. The bills are reasonable. The staff is excellent. After work, it a quick place to bring my pets in and then get home. It's pretty easy to find parking and at a nice location. I recommend bringing your pets here.

This is a great place to take your pets for check-ups and shots. The vet and people at the front desk are really friendly. I take all my animals here. The prices are about the same as the other places but it's worth it for the service. Overall i give this place 5 stars.
