Our animals have been with Dr Weldon for almost 5 years and we have always been extremely happy with her care but more importantly, how she always puts animals first. After reading the few negative reviews that were posted (out of 23 total reviews), I truly felt the need to speak up and go on the record. While all people have a bad day or two in their daily life, it angers me to read some of the dishonest and malicious comments being said about such an incredibly caring person and group of people. Dr Weldon and her team have always treated our family and our animals with the highest level of respect, compassion and professionalism. If you read all of the reviews of Loving Family Animal Hospital you will see a common theme amongst the people she deals with. This includes our story below.
As a lifetime pet owner for 30+ years and a current owner of 3 dogs and 1 cat, my wife and I have dealt with numerous veterinarians all over the country and in our area. During this time my wife and I have been fortunate to work with some extremely talented veterinarians (including a few at The Ohio State Veterinary Hospital in Columbus, OH). After working with Dr Weldon for 5 years we would not hesitate to say that she ranks at or near the top because of her excellent medical/clinical skills but also because she is extremely loving and caring towards her patients. In fact in April of 2010, my wife and I had to put down our dog and longtime friend Maggie, as she finally lost her battle with hip dysplasia and arthritis. When we called Dr Weldon to tell her the horrible news, she immediately offered to come by our home for this somber occasion. This allowed my wife and I the opportunity to have Ms Maggie pass away quietly in her favorite chair, surrounded by all who loved her. While I am sure Dr Weldon is not able to offer this service to all of her patients (which is understandable in today's crazy world), it is this type of caring for our family and our animals that has kept us coming back. For many people a trip to the vet is an annual ordeal where you pile the animals into the car and take them for their yearly examinations. However with such limited time with someone, you really don??t get a chance to learn who they are. Unfortunately my wife and I have had several animals with health issues and have personally dealt with Dr Weldon and her team through hip dysplasia, arthritis and pancreatitis. As many of you know, these are all difficult issues to deal with but Dr Weldon and her team spent a lot of time treating our animals, educating my family, researching new treatment options and helping us through these difficult times.
I am not one that typically writes reviews nor do I have any ulterior motive (which I see in the negative reviews) but Dr Weldon has been so kind to our family and our animals, through all of our ups and downs, that I really felt the need to speak up. For anyone that is looking for a veterinarian to take care of your beloved animals, I would absolutely recommend giving Dr Weldon an opportunity so you can judge for yourself.
