We have been taking our dogs and cats here for more than 25 years, and continue to do so, even though we have moved and it is now a 40-minute drive! Dr. Wahl and his staff are as caring as can be, and they actually get to know your pets. One of the staff actually named one of her pets after our cat because she had grown so fond of him. We would not consider looking for a vet closer to home.

Tim P.

My pet had to have surgery and these guys pulled my 17 year old dog through it. I knew before the operation that he was in the best hands and was happy to see him after the surgery. I highly recommend them!

Breanna P.

I really appreciate that the doctors and technicians are all very knowledgeable at Avenue Animal Hospital. In addition, they are friendly towards myself and my pets. The medicine and the rest they prescribe, seem to work out each time we need them.

Elaine R.

I highly recommend Avenue Animal Hospital. The staff are very helpful and nice which I sincerely appreciate as a pet owner. I couldn’t be more impressed with this office and would recommend to anyone.

Jessica K.

They are wonderful! The hours are great and their fees are reasonable. The vets and their assistants are so nice too. I started taking one of my dogs there to get fixed. My husband and I liked them so much, now we take all 3 dogs there for all their care.

Idalia Z.

We’ve been going to Avenue Animal Hospital for almost 12 years and couldn’t think of going anywhere else. Dr. Wahl is the absolute kindest doc and has been with us through thick and thin with 5 pets. He and the entire staff and all the doctors at Avenue have always treated our furry family with the best care and always spend as much time with us as we need to understand everything that’s happening with our pets’ medical treatment. As an “overprotective” and worrying pet parent, they’ve never gotten annoyed with all my questions and concerns. They are all just the best people around, couldn’t ask for better vet care ever. Just wanted to add in one more thing about this staff…. we recently lost our Irish Setter after a 14 month battle with cancer. Not only was the staff of Avenue with us through everything, they made the best recommendations for her care. Upon her passing we received a condolence card signed with personal notes from every member of the staff. This meant so much to me and my family, we were never alone through this tough time. We just love our Avenue family.
