I took my cats here when I lived in the Abilene area for 10 months. The people were really nice and helpful, and they didn't even flinch when they tried to give my cat a shot and she dug her claws into their hands. They helped her with her flea allergy problem and recommended a good flea control product, which worked well and kept my cats flea-free the whole time I lived there. When my other cat had some behavior problems later, I called them for advice, and the person I talked to was really nice. The only reason I'm giving this clinic four stars instead of five is that it does seem to be a bit expensive compared to other vets I've been to. But in a small town where you don't have many options, I think this clinic is definitely a good choice.
When I found out my cat had pyometra (infected uterus), I tried to get an appointment with my regular vet, but they didn't have space that day and recommended Mt. McKinley. I took the cat there, and they checked her out to confirm what the problem was. The vet, Suzy Pence, answered all my questions and told me about different options. I was a little nervous about my cat having surgery since she was about 9 years old, but they spayed her and took really good care of her, and she recovered just fine. I took her back some time later for an unrelated issue, and they took care of that as well. I don't know how the prices compare to other vets, but the people are really nice and the hours are good. They're even open on Sundays! I highly recommend this place--the people are so nice and really care about the animals.
This was the place I normally took my pets during the three years I lived in Fairbanks, and I was happy with their service. I'm not sure how the prices compare with other places, but I know spaying costs quite a bit less here than it did when I lived in Kansas, so I guess the prices aren't too bad. The people are nice and care about the animals. When one of my cats was sick last year, Aurora didn't have space to see her that day, but they suggested two other places to call in order to get her an appointment right away. I was able to get her in at one of those places that day, and she got the care she needed and has since made a complete recovery. Before I moved away, I took my cats there to get health certificates, and the vet gave me advice about what food to get for my overweight cat and suggested other things I might want to do later on, like getting the cats' teeth cleaned. I really appreciated her advice, especially since I was moving and obviously wouldn't be taking my cats there for the things she suggested. I definitely recommend this clinic.
