My daughter recommended that I take my dog to Boyette Animal Hospital and found them to be excellent in all categories!

The workers at the front desk were cordial and helpful when I asked questions, the technicians were curteous as well.

Good news. My Shadow is heartworm NEGATIVE!

I have been going to Boyette for only 3 years, I haven't had any boarding yet, but I am looking into it. My experience with Dr. Steve is great, last year my yorkie got sick and he sent me to emergency care hospital on the 4th of July weekend and gave my his cell phone number, if I needed him. Needless to say I lost her, but he is still my vet, I have since aquired another yorkie plus I have 2 other dogs that he sees. I reccomend him to everyone that will listen..Front desk to office to back area are all very friendly and helpful... for the person who said they see different Dr.s, since the establishment is large and there are several Dr.s I always request my Dr. I suggest you do the same......Don't settle, be happy!!!

I have been taking my pets there since 2006. I've used Boarding and Grooming services as well as the vets there. I think all there staff there is wonderful. My dogs have boarded there multiple times over the years. I have always gotten all of my things back and my pets smelled better than when I droped them off. They are always happy to be there. I even had a family emergancy and they took my pets no questions asked! One time my dog developed some lose stool while there and they called me to have it taken care of. The ladies at the boarding desk are always very nice and helpful as well as the kennel staff. One of them always helps me out to my car with my stuff. I've been out to the kennel a few times and it always smells nice. I wouldnt take my dogs anywhere else! I've had a GREAT experiance with all parts of boyette. I may have to wait or a room every now and then but the staff is always courteous and let me know whats going on and apologize. I almost always see the same 3 doctors I would forget to ask for them but they always ask if I have a doctor preferance being that they have a lot of doctors my dogs only like certian people to I stick with the same ones although I'm 100% sure they are all great or Dr. Bob would'nt have them there along with the rest of the staff. Thank you boyette animal hospital for always taking such goo care of my pets!!

The previous person is completely wrong! I have boarded my dogs quite a few times at this kennel and they are always very polite, friendly and the facility is VERY CLEAN. The employees always seem willing to go the extra mile to make sure our pets have a pleasant visit. I have never had a problem at all. I would also recommend the animal hospital and all of the veterinarians that I have seen. They have all been very helpful and caring with my pets. I would highly recommend this animal hospital.

The boarding staff is awful, not to mention they are lazy at the desk. When I brought my dog in they yelled behind the door to a male to come get the dog- I could see the male staff roll his eyes. I aslo had to wait in line to board my dog, they are way too busy to even care about any animal- Boyette has 3 groomers who take 15 dogs per day- they also have 40 kennels that fill up every weekend. The girls at the desk look dirty and worn down. Nobody wears a drop of makeup and they dont brush thier hair. When I picked up my dog he stunk awful- I had asked for a bath and was told by the manager that they do baths the day before- so I was charged 30.00 to have a stinky dog??? I also stood there for 30 min while they searched for my dogs toys and blanket it ended up being in a laundry bag- I told her that makes no sense my dog stayed two nights so that means my dog only had his blanket the first night? Boyette animal hospital is over booked, under staffed, and just down right nasty!

We have been using Dr. Bob now for I think 10 years. I was going to another vet when I took in a Jack Russell that had her hip dislocated and that vet was going to charge me $400.00 for xrays and more for sugery. Dr Bob was recommended and I loved the way he approaches the problems and his solutions. Now many years later out of 4 dogs, one has had a stroke but doing great, one has diabetes and she has gone blind from this disease. But with Dr. Bob's care and knowlege she is doing great and still loves to romp outside. Last but not least our fourth dog Maddie has Addison's disease. We feel so blessed, when she came down ill I passed it off for a day or two and then I could tell something was really bad wrong. We took her in without an appointment, thankfully Dr. Bob was on call that day and gave his opinion of what he thought it could be, they kept her for the day for IV fluids and by the next day the results were in, yes he was right on. Well now a few years ago we moved from the Boyette Animal Hospital area to over an hour away in Dade City. Were do we now go with our four legged family members you ask ...... Dr. Bob's of course. To Dr. Bob our many thanks and gratitude.Always the Skelton family

i used to go to this place when i lived in riverview, my advice is dont go there, i needed to have surgery performed on one of my animals and it was emergency surgery and they would not start until my wife came up there from work with a credit card, the reason this troubled me was i had been going here for 8 years and always paid all my bills during the service and had spent thousands of dollars for many services since I am a breeder. Dr. Bob has no bedside manner, he is out of touch with his patients and not in tune with my animals - i hate to say it but he lost my business because of that poor treatment.

I have been taking both of my dogs for a couple of years. Recently, my 1 1/2 year old had some serious liver problems and they couldn't have been better. I would go and visit him during the day while he was on fluids and they held my hand through everything. I can't say enough about how great Dr. Steve is because he believes in treating the dog and not just what the blood work or tests say. I truly lucked out with him because he's not locked into the standard line of other vets where he really takes the dog into consideration and cares about his patients. The whole staff is wonderful and caring and I never worried about my Charlie when he was there. This hospital is a real find and I would highly recommend them!!

I am a wildlife rehabber, and I work with several local vets in the area. Dr. Lorraine is wonderful and so is Ken, when I bring in my exotic crew for care. All of the employees show genuine care and concern, and I feel like they care almost as much as I do about my animals. I feel respected and included in all decisions.

In regard to the starving boxers, I understand personal preferences, but 6 cups per day would cause any dog to be obese eventually, imho. Here is the feeding recommendation for boxers from Eukanuba:

Eukanuba Boxer Formula Dog Food Full Feeding Guidelines:

Weight Feed Daily

(lbs) (cups)

20 1
30 1 1/3
35 1 1/2
40 1 3/4
45 1 3/4
50 2

These guideline amounts are a starting point and your pet may need more food depending on age, activity and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your pet per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.

I have taken my dogs to this establishment since they were puppies. I boarded my two boxer dogs from 11/25/08-11/30/08. When I went to pick up my dogs, I asked for my container of food. I had left enough food for the amount of time they were going to be there. When they handed me the container it was almost completely full. I asked, What have you fed my dogs. They advised me the instructions were one cup 2 times a day. I was speechless. We went and spoke to the person in charge and she advised us those were the instrutions. I specifically advised them it was six cups a day. So in five days they were fed the amount they should eat in one day. My children could not believe how "skinny" their dog had gotten. You could actually see my dog's spine and bones. I told them that common sense will tell you that a dog that size eats more than that. She told me they have to go by the instructions, If in doubt they could have call the contact number to confirm. A chihuahua eats more than that. We have yet to receive a call from the owner, Dr.Bob Encinosa, to apologize or let us know what action will be taken in reference to this. I feel that this incident has no importance to this practice. I am writing because I do not want other dog owners to suffer the way my family has. We paid this establishement to "STARVE OUR DOGS ".

I've been going to this hospital for 2 years and each time, I feel like I'm treated like a number. I understand how they may get busy at times, but there are days where they're not that busy and I'm standing there for at least 5 minutes before anyone acknowledges me and there are at least 4 techs around. They can at least say hello to let me know that they see me.

If you have an appointment, you'll sit in the waiting area for a minimum of 30 minutes unless you're lucky. I feel that when I take my dog to the vet, I would rather keep the same vet instead of seeing 3-4 different ones. I'd like to have a vet that knows my dog and has a relationship with her instead of being treated as a number. There are a few new vet places that are being opened in the area and I've decided to go that route so I can have that pet/vet relationship. I've had it before at a previous vet in Largo and I feel more comfortable knowing I'm going to see the same vet.

After taking my dog to another local animal hospital last year for his annual checkup, I was totally shocked at the treatment we received. Then a friend recommended Boyette Animal Hospital for his exam this year. I was so impressed that I had to let everyone know. First, I was greeted by someone who loves animals, and she treated my "little boy" like her own. Then the technician fully explained what was going to happen during the visit, told me that anything done to my dog would be in the examing room...with me right by his side. (After what we went through at the other vet last year, I really appreciated hearing that.) They answered all my questions, did not rush me, and took the time to make my dog feel comfortable. I give them 5 stars and will not go anywhere else.

They give great care. The office is very clean and efficiently run. The price was affordable. They do not try to "pad" the bill or run unnecessary tests. The doctors are kind to the animals. The even have separate office entrances: one for dogs and one for cats. This was something I appreciate because my cat does not have to be frightened by dogs.

It is a full service office which provides veterinarian care, boarding and grooming services. They have a web site: www.boyetteanimalhospital.com

I highly recommend Boyette Animal Hospital of Riverview to anyone in the Tampa Bay area.

In business since 1990 this vet not only cares about the animals it sees, it cares about the pet owners as well! They are easy on your pocketbook, they don't offer needless medicines or services and the staff is fantastic. They offer boarding services as well, at competitive rates and with the utmost care for your pet. They care for almost all housepet animals including dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, exotic animals and pocket pets. You will love this place!

When I still had my dog, I went here on the recommendation of a friend. WOW was he right, this place is awesome. If you have a pet and need a vet, this should be at the top of your list. They have the nicest and most friendly staff of any place I've been in Hillsborough county!

I eventually had to start taking my dog here to even have his nails clipped because he was freaking out so bad. When they did it, he yelped like a baby and started pooping and peeing everywhere. They didn't mind a bit! I was so embarred and was apologizing for what he had done and they took it in stride, telling me it was normal!

Their prices were fair and I left extremely happy.

PROS: Friendly, convient, fair pricing, love pets
CONS: NONE!

We took our cat here to get fixed and declawed. The staff was very friendly and answered all our questions. After the procedure, the doctor personally called me. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them! They are very organized and detailed.
