My dog had been sick for a few weeks with stomach flu like symptoms. The Vet immediately said it must be CANCER! I thought the "C" work was not suppose to be used until it was for sure! we tried one wound of treatment ideas. $362.00 that didn't work. He became much more ill. A week later I returned and asked if maybe it was the NSIDs he was on. I know that is rough on my stomach. She said unfortunately not due to his age this was something very serious. CANCER. There were x-rays and a pancreas test. The x-rays had a cloud on them. She was certain it was the suspected tumor. $650 + dollars! I took him back to his old out-of-state vet for a second opinion. What he has is a collapsed disk! Not CANCER! The stomach was due to too many NSIDs as suspected. The fog / cloud on the x-ray... GAS! the price of the other vet which included a second set of x-rays, 2 more prescriptions, and a complete blood work panel to make sure we didn't miss anything like cancer, liver failure, kidney's, etc... $188.00

I had just moved to the area and was in search of a new Vet. I did quite a bit of research to compare prices and services provided. Both my dogs needed their Rabies vaccine and there was NO exam fee, most places had quoted me $30-$50

I am not familiar with this particular vet but I am VERY familiar with the practice, as I was employed there about 10 years ago. With little training, I was "thrown to the wolves" and yes, I made mistakes! The hospital manager paid more attention to her hair and her a$$ kissing to the #1 doctor in charge (Dr. F) then left him high and dry to move to some caribbean island with a days' notice! They also employed a drug addict who bullied most of us vet assistants and left me in tears. What happened to the other doctors who were in this practice? Why did they leave? I recall Dr. F coming down on Dr. H for not ordering enough tests of a certain type to MEET HER QUOTA. Yes, Dr. F hired an outside consultant to figure out how to bring in more $$$. The answer was to ORDER MORE PROCEDURES. Make the poor pet owners pay!!! The staff turnover was so quick, you could read the faces of the clients like, "Okaaaay, and who are you???" Lastly, a horrid, lazy practice I watched the druggy of a vet tech do: she withdrew blood from the animals' carotid arteries (the neck) rather than their legs. I will NEVER recommend this practice! Call this review KARMA, Dr. F!

When there is only one vet there and they run behind because of an emergency, there is no other vet there at the same time to pick up the patients that are waiting. So I had to leave and waste my time driving there and putting my dog through the stress of going and waiting.

I have 3 Boston Terriers that I bring regularly to General Booth. I have seen multiple vets here and they have all been pleasant and professional and caring to all 3 of my Boston Terriers. I have to give PRAISE & THANKS especially to Dr. Wood as she has really been a life saver to my special needs Boston who has seizures. The whole staff here is pleasant and professional and the office is always very clean. I would recommend this Veterinary Hospital. Thank you again Dr. Wood & staff.

My most recent experience with veterinarians was at General Booth Veterinary Hospital. These doctors went above and beyond the call of duty to help my aging dachshund. He was having breathing difficulties when I brought him in to be seen. I had been to two other vets in the last year and they said he was just getting old. Upon listening to his chest, the doctor at General Booth Vet said they thought he was in heart failure. My heart just sank. They did some tests and x-rays and even stayed late to get the results in. They began medication which he is still on and it has made him into a new dog. He is now again chasing squirrels and able to go on walks. They went out of their way to make sure that my dog was doing well and explained everything in detail to me. The staff there treated him like he was their own dog. I have never seen such compassion in a group of professionals. I know he won't be around forever but right now, he feels great. Thank you doctors at General Booth Vet Hospital.

I know medicine is still an art - but it is unfortunate after bringing my pets to GBVH that they continued to misdiagnose the same growth that has now seriously jeapordized my animals health. I do not believe it was malice but inattention to the routine visits and progression by seeing multiple vets in their facility.

I have been seeing the veterinarians at General Booth Veterinary Hospital for 6 years and have had only very positive experiences. When my dog was very sick, they were prompt to schedule me and the doctor was wonderful. Their prices are reasonable and they have always been very helpful. The staff is the best that I have ever dealt with in a medical facility. They are caring and thoughtful. Whenever I have been there, it is always clean and carefully tended. Their waiting room is beautifully painted with a stunning mural of animals. They have given me a tour of their facility and I have to say that I only saw well cared for and clean animals. The facility was extremely clean also. They have very modern equipment and the doctors seem to be well versed in the new techniques and procedures. When I look at these other reviews, I must think that the person at Strawbridge Vet has confused that hospital with General Booth Vet which is a completely different and unassociated facility. The other poor reviews seem like they were in cahoots to try and degrade this facility for their own purposes. I can say wholeheartedly that General Booth Veterinary Hospital has an impeccable reputation in Virginia Beach and has it for good reasons, because they are excellent and caring.

My dog was scheduled for minor surgery to remove some small skin growths -he had blood work, and we were told that he was healthy and could have it done. Well, my dog almost died on the table, from a kidney problem. He ended up staying for days on IV. He was actually not well enough for surgery and they had accidently read someone elses results, not my dogs! He still does not act the same, to this day. I wonder how many of these careless mistakes they make on other peoples pets.

The staff is so wonderful here. It is very clean, and doesn't stink like most places. You can find almost anything in there. I don't trust any other place.

This is a great animal hospital. The vets are superb, the staff is friendly & courteous and they also have a boarding facility and groomers on staff. It is always easy to get an appointment and they work extended hours which is convenient especially for those who work during the day. They are also open on Saturdays for a limited number of hours.
