Hello! Can I add Bernie's vet?

 

Blackhawk Vet Hospital

Kendall Williams, DVM

1808 Lafayette St, Janesville, WI 53546

608) 752-5000

Hours:

Monday, Thursday 8am - 7pm

Tuesday 8am - 6pm

Wednesday, Friday 8am - 5pm

Closed weekends

No emergency services; go to Madison, WI for emergency services

 

We know of four other Greyhounds that go to Dr. Williams, so we visited him based off recommendations. He's wonderful. He is knowledgeable about the breed. He also has a very caring demeanor and will really listen to patients and answer questions thoroughly. Dr. Williams does not seem to do unnecessary testing to diagnose issues. Prices are actually very reasonable, considering the long amount of time that he is always willing to spend talking with us.

Wanted to add that in recent discussions with Dr Whitty I’ve found out that he’s had long experience with Greyhounds. He knows their track life and he’s also had one of his own. He’s been very good for us and I can’t recommend him enough.

Albany, NY 12203

Dr. Virginia R. Jarvis

Dr. Danielle P. Pokorny

 

Dr. Pokorny owns a Greyhound and a couple of the staff members do also.

 

I've been there only once with Anna Bella, her first check-up after adoption, and admired Dr. Pokorny's calm, quiet way of examining Annie. I was more stressed about it than Annie Bella. I've called the practice on the phone plenty of times with questions and have always gotten a call back within an hour or so if the question couldn't be immediately answered.

I'd like to introduce all of you to Helping Hands AFFORDABLE Veterinary Surgery and Dental Care. Our mission is to see that no animal goes without surgery or dental care due to prohibitive high costs. We are in Richmond Va and are here to help. Our all inclusive dental (sedation, cleaning, extractions, and meds) are $155 ($198 with bloodwork). This is the price for all animals, not just Greyhounds. We met a lot of you at Greyhounds Rock Fredricksburg and many told us to post here to let all of you know we are here to make surgery and dental care more affordable. See our web site for a list of our all inclusive fees. www.helpinghandsvetva.com

Dr. Jackie has been taking care of our Whippet for years and knows her sighthound stuff. She also teaches surgery at the University of Minnesota and is up on the latest treatments, etc. She specializes in sports medicine for pets and does checks of dog race teams for major races. She is awesome at diagnosing those sprains and strains Jax seems prone to. I love her approach and how available she is when you need her. We are dealing with congestive heart failure with our whippet, and she always returns my phone calls the same day, even if I call her everyday! Their prices are reasonable and the staff is great!

This is my vet. I have worked for them for many years and my family has gone to them for a long time. All of the vets there are great but most, if not all, of the greyhounds that come in see Dr. Prowell. We don't have a ton of greys come in but we do get a decent amount.

I've been bringing all of my animals to the East Lansing Vet Clinic since 2007, and they're exceptional people dedicated to ensuring the health and welfare of all critters. They helped me manage chronic upper respiratory problems in one of my cats, and they've taken great care of Starbuck (including a dental). These are the kind of people who know the names of your pets AND your name, and who call after check-ups just to make sure that everything is okay.
